Goats, Chickens and Veggies: Lambert's Cove Goes Farm to Inn

Ten years ago looking for a change of pace, Scott Jones and Kell Hicklin left their suits and ties down south and bought the Lambert’s Cove Inn and Restaurant in West Tisbury.

Big Easy Comes to Edgartown Bringing Its Own Artistic Flavor

A bit of New Orleans has popped up at 11 North Summer street in Edgartown. The music spilling out onto the sidewalk is the first hint of something different. The artwork takes it from there.

Silence Will Be Golden at Film Festival

Dreamland Brings on the Reggae Beat

His father is the singer Chronicle, and for awhile he was Little Chronicle. But as he found his own way in the music business, he needed his own name. Enter Chronixx.,

Chronixx wrote his first song at age 5, and recorded his first single when he was 11. In April he released The Dread and the Terrible Project, and on July 3 he is bringing his reggae world to Martha’s Vineyard. Some say he is the biggest act to come out of Jamaica in decades.

Chronixx and the Zincfence Redemption are playing Dreamland in Oak Bluffs on Thursday at 9 p.m.
