An evening with Craig Bickhardt and Michael Ronstadt.
A special double feature.

Craig is a singer/songwriter of the old school – you can hear echoes of such ‘60s folk revival artists as Tom Rush, Gordon Lightfoot and Eric Andersen in his work. Added to this is the melodic sophistication of a Jimmy Webb or a Paul Simon, as well as a spare but telling lyric approach. “I admire songwriters like Woody Guthrie and poets like Robert Frost because they created functional art,” he says. “Too much music today is just for the singer, not for Everyman. To listen to samples, visit www.craigbickhardt.com

For two decades, Michael G. Ronstadt has entertained audiences throughout North America on cello, guitar and voice. An exceptional musician-composer conversant with a wide range of styles, he not only executes captivating solo performances, but participates regularly in duo and trio situations with a diverse camp of young, innovative musician-songwriters including Lisa Biales, Serenity Fisher and David Trotta. To say his originals are unusual is an understatement. They set the bar at Olympian heights in their depth and breadth. In addition to his solo recordings as well as those with Ronstadt Generations, Michael G. is a much sought-after studio musician, who has appeared on more than fifty albums in the last dozen years.

Hot Club Philly

An evening with Hot Club Philly.
To listen to samples, visit www.hotclubphilly.com

The Hot Club of Philadelphia was founded in 2001 by guitarist Barry Wahrhaftig, and violinist Mark Campiglia. We are an acoustic jazz quartet, dedicated to playing and preserving the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, adding our own style and arrangements.

The quartet includes Jim Stager on acoustic bass and rhythm guitar by Joe Ellis and/or Rich Yescalis. Barry plays a Manouche Modele Jazz, 14 fret oval hole guitar. Manouche Guitars are built from the plans of the original Selmer guitars built in France in the 1930’s. There’s an almost universal appeal of this music. You can’t “fake” this stuff. You’ve got to play from your heart. This is acoustic music without digital trickery, As much folk music as high art, there’s a real lack of pretense draws the listener in.

An evening with Ross Bellenoit and Birdie Busch.
A special double feature.

After moving here in 2003 to acquire a degree in Jazz Guitar at University of the Arts (where he know teaches as part-time faculty), Bellenoit became an extremely active guitarist-for-hire, willing to play with anyone at a moment's notice. He has shared stages with many local acts including Cowmuddy, Chris Kasper, Hezekiah Jones, Denison Witmer, George Stanford, Gillian Grassie, John Mallinen, and countless others. He spent 5 years touring nationally with retro honky-tonk band The Sweetback Sisters, opened for Bob Dylan and Elvis Costello on tour with Amos Lee, and continues to trek across Europe with Philly ex-pat Joseph Parsons. Bellenoit's own music is a unique blend of songwriting, equal parts Richard Thompson and Elvis Costello, with the tragically lyrical poetics of Joe Henry and Leonard Cohen. When performing with a full band, you can expect big soundscapes with frenetic guitar work. When performing solo (or duo with the enchanting Sonja Sofya), you can expect heartbreaking songs sung with passion and the most humorous traces of hope. To listen to samples, visit www.rossbellenoit.com

Birdie Busch has been making and recording independent music from her home base of Philadelphia for a solid decade. A combination of loyal radio support across the U.S with every recording, live touring, and solid albums put out both herself and on adventurous independents like Bar None Records has created a constellation of connect the dots that has many people listening to her music and making the claim that it’s some of the best they’ve known.

Her latest record, Love & Other Things, is a continuation of Laura’s unique style of organic piano- and acoustic guitar-based tracks, coupled with honest lyrics and rich vocals. A collection of nine songs primarily focused on love in its various stages and forms, the album was independently produced and features select musicians and engineers who embraced Laura’s Do-It-Yourself, home-grown vibe.

Liz Longley

$20 Adv / $25 At the Door

An evening with Liz Longley.
To listen to samples, visit www.lizlongley.com

Longley confides with you as though you’re sitting on the sofa with her in a talk that’s intimate and vulnerable. And now, the Berklee College of Music graduate and award-winning songwriter is set to share her confessional songs with listeners on her self-titled album—her first after signing with Sugar Hill Records in December 2014.

While Longley’s songs and vocals invite complimentary comparisons to Shawn Colvin, Paula Cole and Nanci Griffith—all artists she’s supported live—her latest effort spotlights a style all her own. Her voice and tone, touched with the slightest of country inflections, pours out like clean, crystalline water. Longley first felt the magic while growing up outside of Philadelphia. A song she wrote in ninth grade—her first ever— earned a standing ovation when she performed it for the student body: “I was unprepared for that sort of reaction and it was life-changing moment,” she says. “That’s when I knew it was what I wanted to do with my life.”

The track record she’s assembled since shows just how much Longley grew into her dream. She’s taken home top prizes at some of the most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country, including the BMI John Lennon Songwriting Scholarship Competition, the International Acoustic Music Awards and the Rocky Mountain Folk Fest Songwriting Competition. But it all traces straight back to Longley’s first song. She says she’ll continue to open her soul in the service of her art because that’s what matters most to her. “Every time I get into these songs they resonate with me because they’re based on something I went through,” she says of the new collection. “I hope they connect with people and that they’ll help with whatever they’ve gone through. That’s what music does for me, and I hope I can do that for someone else.”

Charlie Phillips and John Childers

$12 Adv / $15 At the Door

An evening with Charlie Phillips and John Childers.
A special double feature.

Charlie Phillips’ musical influences – rooted in 1960’s and 70’s rock, soul, folk, and blues – have been blended and distilled to create his eclectic style and fresh sound. From the blues-rock and reggae flavored “Preacherman” and “Give It Up”, to the Asbury Park blare of “Natural”, to the campfire folksiness of “Donny T” and “Wealth of Friends”, his heartfelt and melody-driven songs leave the listener singing after the song is over. Charlie’s charisma and spontaneity are evident in his live shows, alluring audiences by dipping deep into his reservoir of original music and cover tunes. Also a yoga teacher at his own yoga studio in suburban Philadelphia, Charlie adds the compelling ingredient of his positive and hopeful “spiritual realism” into his recordings as well as his live performances. He also performs many Tribute shows including Eric Clapton, George Harrison, John Lennon, and Bob Dylan. Charlie’s songs have received airplay on WXPN 88.5 in Philadelphia and other stations across the country, and his song “Tears For Joy” climbed to No. 17 on the October 2012 IndieWorld Country Music chart. To listen to samples, visit www.charliephillips.com

From spirited and good natured to the serious and reflective John Childers explores songwriting through storytelling ballads and various shades of blues to a blend of boogie and rock with no boundaries. His lyrics, guitar and voice weaves his music in an intricate dance that may leave you thoughtful, tapping your toes or dancing in the aisles. "JC" has performed from Bethlehem Musicfest, The Kimmel Center and World Cafe Live to the renowned Burlap and Bean Coffee House. To listen to samples, visit www.johnchildersmusic.com

Tin Bird Choir and Everything Turned to Color

$10 Cover

Dull Dime presents Tin Bird Choir and Everything Turned to Color.
A special double feature.

Tin Bird Choir is an alt-folk barn rock band from Chester County Pennsylvania. Their new album, Homesteady, is a bold evolution of their signature “barn rock” sound, and it’s getting lots of attention. One song off the album, “Straight Face,” was picked up by Starbucks to be played in their stores worldwide this past September, another song off the album, “Cheaper, Less Painful,” earned the band a spot as one of the regional finalists in the Mountain Stage Newsong Contest. With literate lyrics, organic harmonies, urgent melodies, Tin Bird Choir is intelligent and original, simple, fun, often quirky, and sometimes even a little haunting. To listen to samples, visit www.reverbnation.com/tinbirdchoir

Native to Brooklyn, NY, Everything Turned to Color is the musical stepchild of veteran songwriters Bryan and Kyle Weber and Neha Jiwrajka. Awash in melody and whimsically reminiscent of the Folk/Jazz songsmiths of yesteryear, the group delivers heartfelt compositions echoing the nostalgia of generations past. Despite their long-storied musical backgrounds [brothers Bryan and Kyle Weber led the internationally touring Rock band ZELAZOWA and founded IndieOnTheMove.com, and Neha Jiwrajka not only fronts her own project "Neha" as a singer-songwriter but also teaches at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music and sings with Bolero group La Vitrola], Bryan and Neha met humbly and unexpectedly in the lobby of their Brooklyn apartment building.

An evening with Diana Jones and Rod Picott.
A special double feature.

Diana Jones is an award-winning singer-songwriter based in New York and Nashville. She grew up in the Northeast with no art or music in her home, the adopted daughter of a chemical engineer. During her childhood and adolescence, she felt an almost mystical, seemingly inexplicable attraction to rural Southern music, but it wasn’t until her late 20s, when she located her birth family in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in east Tennessee, that her deep affinity for traditional folk and Appalachian music began to make sense. Her 2006 recording, My Remembrance of You, earned her a nomination as Best Emerging Artist at the Folk Alliance Awards, leading to tours with Richard Thompson and Mary Gauthier, appearances at folk festivals on both sides of the Atlantic, and covers of her songs by Gretchen Peters and Joan Baez. Her next recordings, Better Times Will Come (2009) and High Atmosphere (2011), established Diana’s reputation as one of the premier artists in the folk music/Americana world. Her latest release, Museum of Appalachia Recordings (2013) was released in the UK and EU in July by Proper Records and in the US by Goldmine Records. To listen to samples, visit www.dianajonesmusic.com

The son of a welder from rural New England, Rod Picott is a masterful songwriter and soulful singer who carries with him as fine a suitcase of songs as you'll find anywhere. Slaid Cleaves, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Fred Eagelsmith have recorded Rod Picott songs. A former construction worker who hung up his tools when he released his debut CD in 2000, Picott has carved a career for himself with a run of 6 beautifully crafted self released CDs over the last 13 years and a well earned reputation as a engaging, emotion fueled performer. Hang Your Hopes On Crooked Nail, produced by RS Field [Billy Joe Shaver, Justin Townes Earle, Hayes Carll] is a collection of carefully crafted songs of rugged truth and beauty. Recorded at Joe Pisapia's [KD Lang, Guster] Middletree Studios in East Nashville the CD highlights Picott's particular gift for exploring complex themes in common language. The eleven songs on Hang Your Hopes On a Crooked Nail offer an unblinking albeit wry gaze into our common heart and a clenched fist of defiance against the trials that tear at our humanity.

Award-winning Philadelphia native Christine Havrilla brings her “well-built, catchy, smart tunes” (Upstage Magazine) to Burlap and Bean on 5/29/15 with the support of her band, Gypsy Fuzz. Christine utilizes the soft gritty texture of her vocals to express warmth and honesty listeners quickly embrace as well as her aggressive, raw, trash-style guitar playing.

Mike “Jacobs” McKenna of Steel Notes Magazine states, “This CD (Vol. 2- The Sunset Sessions) just defies description. It is hot, tight, precise and just plain kicks ass. If I were still programming radio, I'd be all over this! My recommendation is go hear the band live, buy the CD and experience what I have just heard. I give this 2 THUMBS UP!” Mark Rogers from 93.7 WSTW raves, “…with Gypsy Fuzz (the album and the band), Christine takes especially that rock element and turns it to 11. Gypsy Fuzz fuses fantastic guitar work with Christine’s vocals, which can reach down inside and grab your heart.

A very diverse album, showing elements of rock, blues and even country, among others, Gypsy Fuzz continues Christine’s string of fantastic albums. Buy it.” Named "One of the Top Ten Indie Artists" by The Advocate Magazine, The Washington Post writes, “(Havrilla’s) songs are intelligent and moving, the arrangements are incisive and colorful, and, best of all, Havrilla consistently comes across as a confident and seasoned performer.” Gypsy Fuzz’s premier album titled “Searching. Finding. Living.”, co-produced by Larry Crane (Elliott Smith, Sleater-Kinney, Cat Power), was listed on Advocate Magazine’s not to be missed “Best Overlooked Albums of 2011!” (Advocate -November 2011) and She Wired’s Top Ten Albums of the Year!

Christine is listed with Takamine Guitar’s Worldwide Artists, was a featured Artist for American Musical Supply’s Singer/Songwriter Month (Feb 2015), nominated for About.com's 2013 Reader's Choice Awards, awarded the 2010 Garden State Film Festival’s “Best Contemporary Country Song” for “Blinders”, nominated for 3 “Homey Awards” (2015) for 93.7 WSTW, and is called "...raw, simple, wonderful!" by Curve Magazine. Inessa at 101.9 KINK.FM calls Gypsy Fuzz "Yet another fun late-year discover!" Michaela Majoun at 88.5 WXPN applauds her "terrific, big sound”, while Philadelphia Magazine states, “She rocks!” Christine’s current project is a series of “Live Session” volumes recorded in 2014 and 2015, with Vol. 1- The Creamery Sessions and Vol. 2- The Sunset Sessions now available. Vol. 3- The Old Church Sessions will be ready in the Spring 2015 as well.

An evening with Heather Pierson and The Band of Rivals.
A special double feature.

Heather Pierson is an award-winning singer/songwriter and performer. With eight previous solo recordings under her belt, Heather’s wise-beyond-her-years songwriting, angelic voice, and world-class chops have catapulted her into the spotlight. The Heather Pierson Acoustic Trio burst onto the national folk scene in 2015 with their debut EP, Still She Will Fly. It features the multi-genre depth of Heather’s songwriting, their intricate instrumental arrangements, and stirring three-part vocal harmonies. The title track was the #2 single on Folk radio in 2015, and three other songs (‘Ain’t Gotten Around,’ ‘You Don’t Know Him The Way I Do,’ and ‘Make It Mine’) were in 2015’s Top 100 Folk singles. To listen to samples, visit www.heatherpierson.com

Five musicians from seemingly unrelated genres came together to form the Band of Rivals. The collaboration began with Sean Cox bringing some material he had recorded to his companions Abbey Reed and Alex-Michael Alleva. The trio began producing a unique blend of folk, jazz, and rock. Soon after playing a handful of shows together, the threesome agreed that they should find a bassist and drummer to round out and complete their ensemble. These two additions were found in Doug Keller on bass and fantastically eccentric Greg Ondo on drums. The quintet is currently preparing to release their first studio album entitled "The Better Angels of Our Nature". The cd blends folk, rock, jazz, blues, and country and features members of the band playing multiple instruments throughout its rousing duration.

Jason Myles Goss and John Statz

$10 Adv / $12 At the Door$10 Adv / $12 At the Door

An evening and Jason Myles Goss and John Statz.
A special double feature.

A Hopedale, MA native, Jason has been writing and recording since 2003 when he released his first full length album "Long Way Down." Since then, he's spent his time touring and releasing subsequent albums before settling down long enough to make "Radio Dial," in which he enlisted the help of friends Austin Nevins (guitars) and Sam Kassirer (keys), both members of Josh Ritter's Royal City Band, as well as David Dawda (bass) and Joel Arnow (drums). Jason releases his fifth album entitled, This Town Is Only Going To Break Your Heart, a gutsy and earnest collection of songs which pull together many of Jason's disparate musical influences. If the opening rumblings of "Joplin," the album's first track, are surprising to listeners, his fans will surely understand, as Jason has made a habit out of pushing his writing towards new musical territory. The songs are stellar, the stories—gripping, vivid, and all his own. It is an album about the towns we love, the towns that shape who we are, and about kids growing up to have kids of their own. It's about TV re-runs, drug-store parking lots, gas station lights, sleeping pills, first kisses, factory walls, and the ebb and flow of a story that is always compelling and always the same. Jason writes, "I have been at this for a long time—it's the best thing I've ever done. I feel like I have been waiting my whole life to make this album." To listen to samples, visit www.jasonmylesgoss.com

John Statz recorded his new album with an all-star band in the middle of a Vermont ice storm. “We had to keep the stove burning the whole day, and then the electricity went out for ten minutes,” concedes Statz. “Luckily, we were just rehearsing.” John Statz will release Tulsa on March 10, 2015. After years of DIY touring everywhere from Eastern Europe to Mexico, the Wisconsinite who now resides in Colorado fell in with fellow Midwesterner Jeffrey Foucault, a critically acclaimed songwriter and veteran of the americana circuit. A fan of Statz’s last album (2012’s Old Fashioned, produced by Bo Ramsey), Foucault offered to produce his next record while the two were on tour together in Colorado. The resulting Tulsa is beautiful blend of soft americana and smooth folk with echoes of The Jayhawks and Whiskeytown. “John writes songs you can’t shake,” says Foucault. “They follow you around all day and run through your head at 3 a.m. Open hearted, horizon-line songs.” To listen to samples, visit www.johnstatz.com

Cleveland-born David Wilcox is a father, a husband, a citizen and a songwriter. First inspired to play guitar after hearing a fellow college student playing in a stairwell, Wilcox is now 18 records into a career marked by personal revelation and wildly loyal fans. His lyrical insight is matched by a smooth baritone voice, virtuosic guitar chops, and creative open tunings, giving him a range and tenderness rare in folk music.

Wilcox released an independent album in 1987, was a winner of the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk award in 1988, and by 1989 he had signed with A&M Records. His first release on the label, How Did You Find Me Here, sold over 100,000 copies the first year largely by word of mouth.

Considered a 'songwriter's songwriter', his songs have been covered by artists such as k.d. lang and many others. In addition to his writing prowess, his skills as a performer and storyteller are unmatched. He holds audiences rapt with nothing more than a single guitar, thoroughly written songs, a fearless ability to mine the depths of human emotions of joy, sorrow and everything in between, and all tempered by a quick and wry wit.

An evening with Heather Maloney.
To listen to samples, visit www.heathermaloney.com

Heather Maloney is an American singer-songwriter who has received numerous accolades for her startlingly soulful voice and literate songwriting exploring themes of spirituality, transformation, and impermanence. Critics are quickly discovering Maloney's talent with No Depression raving "Her music is riveting, her voice adventurous, her lyrics thought-provoking...” while Blurt Magazine wrote "Heather Maloney is one of the most talented tradition-based singer-songwriters I’ve heard in some time...the writing is stunning."

If there’s a typical path to becoming a songwriter, Maloney didn’t follow it. Although she went to school for music and had done plenty of singing, she only began writing tunes a few years ago after living and working for three years in a silent-retreat meditation center in central Massachusetts. “The biggest motivating factor in writing was probably the experiences that I was having here in my meditation practice,” she says. “There was the difficulty of it, the suffering of it, and wanting to channel that into something creative, and on the positive side, the insights that came out of my experiences.”

Maloney has had a breakout 2014, sharing stages with Anais Mitchell, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Lake Street Dive, Shakey Graves, and more. Her joint EP with indie-folk quartet Darlingside, the Woodstock EP, was released in March and gained national attention in the New York Times for their cover of Joni Mitchell’s song “Woodstock.” Graham Nash (Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young) lauded the track during his keynote speech at Folk Alliance International, calling it “delicious, really excellent.”
