UPCOMING CONCERTS:

*** March 24th:       Thea Hopkins

                Pot-luck dinner 6 pm, Concert 7 pm  

 

Internationally touring performing songwriter Thea Hopkins calls her music American Short Story Folk: concise, striking narratives, they tell of romance, tragedy and triumph in modern terms. Thea first came to greater notice in 2004, with the recording of her song 'Jesus Is On The Wire' by Peter, Paul & Mary. Thea will be accompanied by virtuoso guitarist Kenny Selcer.


 

*** April 24th  Rani Arbo & Greg Ryan Duo

                     Pot-luck lunch 2 pm     Concert 3 pm    

Rani Arbo & Greg Ryan Duo is a fun, intricate, and soulful combination of two master musicians with great alchemy. It's a side project — a rare flower that blooms only a few times a year, but brings its players (and audiences!) a sustaining and memorable musical experience. The show features Arbo’s wry, reflective originals, as well as traditional and cover songs. Together with Ryan’s rich, gravelly singing and emotive, powerful guitar, the duo swings from subtle fingerstyle to high-octane swing, to fiddle-driven, high-speed songs of love and loss.

                             Pot luck Dinner 6 pm, Concert 7 pm

Hailing from the far South Western corner of Australia, singer-songwriter Lucy Wise has delighted audiences across Australia, New Zealand and the UK with her unique blend of folk music combined with masterful storytelling.
