Jim Trick is an acoustic guitarist and singer who weaves real-life stories into melodies ranging in style from contemporary folk to acoustic rock. His latest CD is “Buying the Field.”

Addy & Julia, two young Marblehead singers, are returning to the stage after wowing everyone at last year’s concert. Addy Sleeman and Julia Taliesin present young musicians’ take on classic Beatle songs. They have an EP entitled “Someday,” which highlights their harmonies and guitar and piano melodies.

The Melody Makers, better known as Rick Broughton and Brian Ware, have been described as a jukebox filled with classic hits.

Kerri Powers is a singer-songwriter from Connecticut who often performs at the Me & Thee in Marblehead. She writes moody, intimate songs, with lyrics that are often considered quirky, whimsical, and hopeful.

The Barbara Cassidy Band, featuring Cassidy and Eric Chaslow, perform electronic and classical music, rock, jazz, cabaret, and musical theater. The band’s latest recording is “Fly Away.”

Chicago singer-songwriter Heather Styka is a recent transplant to Portland, Maine. Her songs are rooted in the folk and Americana tradition. She has a recording, “Lifeboats.”

Kayla Ringelheim, from Providence, grew up surrounded by the musical culture of Harvard Square.

She played her first open microphone at Club Passim, when she was 13. She performs pop and jazz, with a modern edge.

Scrambled Eggs — Mike Birch, Grady Moates, Lin Sprague, and Kevin Wall -- are returning for the third year with selections all written by George Harrison.

The performers have donated their time for the concert, which benefits a fund that sends musicians into local schools for workshops and concerts, as well as programs at the church.

The show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20, $5 for students and children, $45 for a family package.
