Kate Klim and Peyton Tochterman

$10 Cover$10 Cover

An evening with Kate Klim and Peyton Tochterman.
A special double feature.

With roots in Palatine, Illinois and Downingtown, Pennsylvania, Kate was raised on a steady diet of Carole King , Paul Simon, Billy Joel and John Lennon. Later on, her influences grew to include Patty Griffin, Jonatha Brooke, Chris Trapper and Garrison Starr. Kate's musical success in her hometown led her to Berklee College of Music in Boston. It was here that Kate worked on her skills as a writer and performer, and became involved with the music community that had produced icons like Bob Dylan years before, and Tracy Chapman and Patty Griffin in the recent past. Within a few years of her debut as a singer/songwriter, she was opening for artists like Shawn Colvin, Lucy Kaplansky, Richard Shindell and Ollabelle. Her newest release, "Kamikaze Love" contains her strongest songs yet, including the two than won her the New Folk competition. Produced by friend, band mate and promising new producer Brian Packer, the album is a sign that Kate is no longer trying to conform to the folk community, but rather embracing the indie-pop songwriter she has always been. The product is an honest collection of songs that Kate considers her best work yet. To listen to samples, visit www.kateklim.com

Born in Virginia, living in the musical hotbed of Charlottesville, Peyton Tochterman has just recorded his debut national release, A NEW WORLD. Produced by Sam Wilson (Sons of Bill), the project features songstress Stacey Earle and nationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Ellis Paul. Peyton is and has been many things. A former sports writer, a cancer survivor, a former NCAA athlete (if you call being ninth out of a possible ten on his golf team athletics)… He’s been hit by a train, had Kenny G.’s grand piano fall on his head, gotten to pick out Trisha Yearwood’s dress one night (they settled on the red one, by the way), has made Yo Yo Ma laugh with a joke and can’t remember what joke, has helped cast bronze monuments and sculptures for renowned sculpture Cy Twombly, has traveled across America on Harleys with his dad, and to the far reaches of western China to record monks blowing really, really big horns… And through it all, he has been a songwriter.

$10 Cover

An evening with Atlas Gray (formerly known as Forward Motion).
To listen to samples, visit www.atlasgray.com

Atlas Gray’s music and performances capture the qualities of music that move people. Steeped in the traditions of funk and soul, their sound is instantly recognizable yet entirely new. Influenced by his jazz and rock backgrounds, singer, songwriter and pianist Alex Godiksen has developed a style that is at once both lyrical and soul-driven.

Lead guitarist Andy Sorenson and drummer Jon Stoltzfus are childhood friends from Philadelphia who share a love of classic funk and modern jazz. Guitarist John Brackett has come back to Connecticut after spending time absorbing the classic Americana sounds of blues and country around Nashville, Tennessee.

While the influences are diverse, they are also at the root of Atlas Gray’s ability to create a sound that can instantly connect with the audience.

Charlie Phillips with Elwood James Band

Free Event

 First Friday hosted by Charlie.
Sober Night  - - - - - No BYOB

An evening with Charlie Phillips.
To listen to samples, visit www.charliephillips.com

Raised amidst the musical melting pot that was 1970’s Philadelphia, listeners agree that Charlie Phillips’ songs cannot be categorized into genre. His musical influences – rooted primarily in 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 (evident in songs such as “Little Things” and “What It Is”) as well as his live performances.

Songs from Charlie’s CDs “All Roads Lead To Home” and “JustLove!” have received airplay on WXPN 88.5 in Philadelphia and other stations across the country and internationally, and his song “Tears For Joy” has climbed to No. 12 on the November 2012 IndieWorld Country Music chart. His third CD, “What It Is” was released in January 2012 and rose to No. 23 on the RootsMusic Chart in November 2012.

An evening with Psalmships and Hezekiah Jones.
A special double feature.

Joshua Britton writes and plays songs for people who are alone, at night, biting their lower lips and holding something back; songs for people who enjoy painkillers, or short romances, or horses and mountains and rivers and such. His band Psalmships, with its revolving membership, offers up restrained atmospherics to emphasize the weighty and familiar themes of spiritual exploration and heartened loss. Some have called the music "grizzled, ghastly, ghoulish, gothic Americana,” and some have said his “whiskey-fueled folk numbers...are as beautiful as they are powerful.” A new album, called I SLEEP ALONE, is due this Summer. To listen to samples, visit www.psalmships.com

Hezekiah Jones is a collection of Philadelphia-area artists orbiting around the song-writing talents of one Raphael Cutrufello. Hezekiah Jones is the most prolific Yer Bird Records artist with two albums and two EPs released, that we are more than honoured to have as part of our library. If you don't know this Mr. Jones, spend some time getting to know this staple of the Philly-folk scene. To listen to samples, visit www.hezekiahjones.com

An evening with Jadea Kelly and Sympathy and the Lion.
A special double feature.

In 2010, Jadea released Eastbound Platform, an independent release produced by David Baxter. Jadea was later nominated for new emerging artist by the Canadian Folk Music Awards which led to appearances on Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Café, Canadian festival performances, European house concert tours and even a CBC recorded performance at the Stewart Park Folk Festival in 2010. Jadea is known most prominently for her vocal work and recordings with Canadian folk artist Catherine MacLellan and Canadian metal band Protest the Hero. To listen to samples, visit www.darthjadea.com/jadeakelly.html

Sympathy and the Lion is John Shavel and Michael Burke. They are based out of Lancaster, PA. They met on Craigslist in 2011 shortly after Michael moved to the area from Los Angeles, CA. Since then, Sympathy and the Lion has been through many incarnations, culminating in paring themselves down to a duo this year. They aspire to create a haunting landscape of sound through a combination of cello, tenor guitar, guitar, and harmonies. Their lyrics draw from myth, archetypal imagery, and a quest for grace. They have just played The Bitter End in New York City and will be playing LAUNCH Music Festival this April in Lancaster, PA. Club Passim will have them at their annual Campfire Festival in Cambridge, MA this Memorial weekend. To listen to samples, visit www.sympathyandthelion.bandcamp.com

An evening with Barnaby Bright and Ken Yates.
A special double feature.

Barnaby Bright's music has since been featured on television shows such as ER, Days of Our Lives, and PBS Roadtrip Nation. Their song, "If I Came Back as a Song" was voted 3rd place winner by a notable panel of judges including Tom Waits, in 2007's International Song-Writing Competition. They will be featured as an "Emerging Artist" at the legendary Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in upstate NY this summer, and are returning to Europe this fall for a month-long tour. Playing throughout NYC in some of the city’s top clubs and venues, this duo continues wowing packed audiences with thoughtful lyrics, intricate melodies and unexpected instrumentation.

Born and Raised in London, Ontario, Ken Yates moved to Boston to study songwriting at Berklee College of Music. It was there that he developed his skills as a songwriter, releasing his first CD, “The Backseat EP”, and received the opportunity to play a song for one of his biggest influences, John Mayer. Mayer even posted a full page blog about Yates’ ability as a writer stating, “Ken Yates wrote a song called ‘I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love’… this song moved me when I first heard it and still does today”. Yates’ EP received high critical acclaim, leading to a slew of online covers from fans. He has toured with many notable names including veteran singer/songwriter and mentor, Livingston Taylor, Sister Hazel, Peter Katz, and Liz Longley and has songs in heavy rotation on Sirius XM’s The Coffee House where he was nominated for The Coffee House Songwriter Discovery of the Year.

John Galla with Hinton, Bower, and Jones

$12 Adv / $15 At the Door

An evening with John Galla - CD Release.
To listen to samples, visit www.reverbnation.com/johngalla

Rooted in the rich history of music -- but with an emphasis on attaining an original perspective -- singer/songwriter, John Galla deftly blends a multitude of musical influences into a captivating aural mosaic, framed by dynamic rhythm, lyrical wordplay, and poignant expression.

John's 2011 debut, "Sketch", has become a favorite among local radio stations, with four tracks, ("Coming Through?", "Fear", "Sweet Relief" and "Binary Stars") receiving significant airplay. Building on this success, John began laying down tracks at the end of that year for what would become his newest album, "Drifting to Bella" (2014). However, while continuing to play as a solo-artist and with the newly-formed, 'John Galla Band', (in addition to three other side-projects), it wasn't until a hiatus from performing in May 2013 that John was able to return to the studio in earnest to finish the project.

During this two-year interval, John underwent a personal, (and by extension, creative) evolution that transformed the project from "Sketch"-sequel to alternate musical phase. This metamorphosis has been eloquently captured in the narrative of the new album from its first to final track ("Drifting" to "Bella"), and John is proud to unveil his new work at one the best listening rooms in the entire Philadelphia area, Burlap and Bean, on May 10, 2014.

Joining in the celebration for this album release show are special guests, 'Hinton, Bower and Jones', and an all-star band of talented friends including album producer, Kyle Swartzwelder, Gene Isayev, Doug Gramo, Eric Barbuscia, Karen Meyers-Williamson and Steven "Lu" Ciannavei.

Amy Speace with Jarrod Dickenson

$12 Adv / $15 At the Door

An evening with Amy Speace.
To listen to samples, visit www.amyspeace.com

“Amy Speace’s songs hang together like a short story collection, united by a common vantage point and common predicaments…it’s a gift to hear a heart so modest even when it’s wide open,” says legendary rock critic Dave Marsh in his liner notes to Amy Speace’s latest, “How To Sleep In A Stormy Boat” (WindBone/Tone Tree). Marsh continues, “It is the most daring, confident, ambitious and beautiful album Amy Speace has made since she began recording.”

Speace, once an actress with The National Shakespeare Company, has crafted a document to living gracefully with grief that weaves a most unlikely yet beautifully poetic narrative between her very modern lamentings and the characters in Shakespeare’s plays. The New York Times wrote “For those who argue that poetry is a dying genre, I suggest listening to Amy Speace.” The Tennessean writes, “What Speace says – what she sings -- she says with a confluence of poetry and honesty, of emotional specificity.” And NPR’ “All Things Considered” featured an interview between Jacki Lyden and Amy which aired late April 2013.

Although Amy began her creative career in the theater, acting with The National Shakepeare Company and various other classical repertory theaters, she long ago left behind the stage to pursue music full time. Cutting her teeth playing regular gigs at The Living Room and The Bitter End in NYC, she was discovered by legend Judy Collins in 2005 and signed to Collins’ imprint, Wildflower Records, releasing two critically-acclaimed albums, “Songs For Bright Street” (2006) and “The Killer In Me” (2009).

Kyle Swartzwelder and
Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards

$10 Cover$10 Cover

An evening with Kyle Swartzwelder and Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards. A special double feature.

A veteran of the folk scene, Kyle has been winning audiences over with his deft lyrical storytelling and dynamic live performances. His new record, "Canadian Pacific," will only serve to further this reputation. And if there were any questions about Kyle's diverse musical influences, these questions are quickly put to rest within the first few songs of the album. From the steady sparseness of "Right Here" to the traditional country feel of "Mexican Wine," listeners will find themselves immersed in a rich musical landscape. Traditionally a solo performer, Kyle effortlessly gains new fans each live performance of his sweet country-folk songs. Those unfamiliar with Kyle's music will find it a perfect blend of 70's California Country, folk, and today's singer-songwriter movement. Kyle's music is recommended if you like - Lyle Lovett, Ryan Adams, Jeffrey Foucault, Josh Ritter, early Jackson Browne, early Neil Young. To listen to samples, visit www.kyleswartzwelder.com

Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards are a folk duo from Massachusetts who sing songs which resonate with the lover of Americana and old country music, commanding familiar traditional melodies and poignant, introspective lyrics, and backing them with delicate arrangements on ukulele, clarinet, guitar and banjo. They began in the basements, coffee shops and art spaces of New England, and have since tested the stages of more traditional folk music venues, colleges, living rooms and bar rooms from Boston to Austin, Denver to Nashville, Asheville to Portland, and back 'round again. Hundreds of concerts have been given and thousands of records have been sold, all on their own steam and without the support of major industry assistance. Over the years, Mandeville & Richards have shared the stage with acts like John Gorka, Joan Osborne, Mustard's Retreat, Atwater & Donnely, Antje Duvekot, The Low Anthem, David Wax Museum and Brownbird.

An evening with Jess Klein and Daughter and Son.
A special double feature.

Behind a Veil (2012) marks Klein’s 2nd album with Austin based producer Mark Addison, the first being 2009’s critically acclaimed Bound to Love. In Bound to Love, Klein keenly embraced the dusty roots of Texas songwriters while reveling in her new surroundings. Behind a Veil goes deeper, chronicling her feelings during a particularly hard year; the loss of her father after a 5 year battle with ALS, a split with a long-time lover, and the self-empowering decision to move forward with no record label. To listen to samples, visit www.jessklein.com

The NYC-based duo Daughter & Son consists of two inspiring and individual artists: Jody Shelton and Mighty Kate. What happens when the two Indie darlings come together serendipitously to form an elegant singer/songwriter duo? Sonic magic. Aside from his effortless voice, boundless musicianship and critically acclaimed songwriting, Jody Shelton also has an impressive background as a sideman and musical director - most notably with Chicago’s Second City National Touring Company.

$10 Cover

An evening with Vinegar Creek Constituency.
To listen to samples, visit www.vinegarcreek.com

American songs are full of deranged old ghosts howling at the moon. Vinegar Creek Constituency, an eclectic, incendiary string band out of the PA Dutch Country, channels these venerable old ghosts of the American folk tradition through imaginative, emotive original songs delivered with rock n roll intensity. Full of shouting, floorboard-stomping soul, their live performances are uplifting, high-energy events with fans dancing in the aisles and clapping, stomping, and singing along.

Like their folksong forerunners that took root around campfires and on back porches across America, the songs call out from the crossroads of light and darkness. They are dreams of Heaven alongside visions of Hell; songs in praise of love alongside tales of murder and the madness of lovers betrayed; songs that ride the rails, wander the countryside, rise from the grave, and cackle in the face of impending doom.

Matthew Ryan with Bethel Steele

$10 Adv / $12 At the Door

An evening with Matthew Ryan.
To listen to samples, visit www.matthewryanonline.com

Matthew Ryan is celebrated for his music and perhaps most of all for his lyrics, but it was that voice that hooked me, right in the opening seconds of his debut album May Day. “Here comes the razor of doubt/ Here comes the falling out…” A striking couplet to begin an album, to be sure, and in many ways a fitting prelude to every lyric that came from Ryan in the years to come. But the voice that delivered them to the ear was something else altogether—ragged, haunted, desperate. He sang at times through half clenched teeth, as though he just couldn’t keep the words in no matter how hard he tried.

May Day was a milestone in my own musical journey, both as a listener and as what little bit of a musician I’ve become myself. My most frequent collaborator will sometimes look at me and smile and say, “You’re doing that Matthew Ryan thing again.” That first album has great songs, classic songs, songs I would have given at least one or two fingers to write. Not just “Guilty,” but “Dam” and “Irrelevant” and “Chrome” and good goddamn, “The Lights of the Commodore Barry,” as gorgeous and transcendent a song as Tom Waits never wrote. These songs had more than a mere immediacy to them; they had an almost involuntary organic quality. Listening to May Day was like getting a blood transfusion directly from Ryan’s breaking heart to yours.

As his career progressed, Ryan’s writing moved in slightly different, and always fascinating, directions. After East Autumn Grin, a sort of May Day Volume 2 with some real gems of its own (“It’s heartache weather/ Please remember/ Things are gonna get worse/ Before they get better”), he moved into a space that could be labeled folktronica with 2003’s Regret Over the Wires. It was an intoxicating blend, the interplay between the slick beats and the gruff confessionalism of Ryan’s voice and lyrics.

$15 Cover$15 Cover$15 Cover

An evening with Craig Bickhardt, Lizanne Knott, and Michael Logen.
A special triple 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. I think of my work as a ‘Please Touch’ museum – I want my songs to be sung until they’re worn out.” Also crucial to Craig’s art is his virtuosic guitar work, interweaving folk, blues, country and ragtime influences into a unique whole: “The guitar isn’t just an accompanying instrument for me – sometimes it’s the front man and my voice is the accompanist.” To listen to samples, visit www.craigbickhardt.com

A long standing member of the singer-songwriter scene in Philadelphia, Lizanne Knott has been captivating audiences throughout the Northeast and garnering attention from radio listeners across the globe. Well known locally for her floating vocals and lyrical juxtapositions, her apparent depth and transcending warmth make for an inviting mix of music which moves easily through dark poetic ballads to folk driven rock. To listen to samples, visit www.lizanneknott.com

Michael Logen is an international pop/folk artist, currently touring opening in 2009 for John Legend, Jonny Lang and Sister Hazel in the U.S. Including at The Ryman Auditorium, House of Blues/ New Orleans and Chastain Park Amphitheater in Atlanta. In 2008, songs from Michael's album “Things I Failed To Mention” were featured on MTV's “Real World” and ABC's “Kyle XY” and songs from the album won multiple awards including International Songwriting Competition's 09 Song of the Year Award in Folk/Singer-Songwriter Category and Unisong International Songwriting Competition 09 Song of the Year in Americana Category.
