Amy Speace and Kerri Powers

$18 Adv / $20 At the Door$18 Adv / $20 At the Door

An evening with Amy Speace and Kerri Powers.

Amy Speace is a folk singer, timeless and classic, and a bit out of her own era. Since her discovery in 2006 by folk-pop icon Judy Collins, Speace has been heralded as one of the leading voices of the new generation of American folk singers. Her latest release, “That Kind Of Girl”, received rave reviews by Billboard Magazine, The New York Times and NPR. Recorded live in 3 days with a small combo featuring Will Kimbrough (Emmylou Harris) and Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket), it is spare, direct and brutally honest. As “That Kind of Girl” was being released, Speace was in the studio with a side project -- the trio Applewood Road, comprised of herself, fellow Nashvillian Amber Rubarth and the UK’s Emily Barker. They had met in 2015 at a coffeeshop in East Nashville and, after writing one song together, were signed to a deal with the London-based Gearbox Records. Their eponymous debut was released in February 2016 to astonishing 4 and 5 star reviews. To listen to samples, visit www.amyspeace.com

Kerri Powers started playing professionally in local coffeehouses throughout her native New England, and went on to release several well-received albums in the new millennium, culminating in Faith in the Shadows in 2009. Two of her songs were later featured on the Fox series “Rescue Me” starring Denis Leary. After taking time off to get married and raise her young son she returned to performing, counting among her credits the Boston Folk Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival, and Telluride Bluegrass Festival, among other prestigious gatherings. She’s also toured Europe while opening for Canadian singer/songwriter Fred Eaglesmith in The Netherlands, Belgium, and the United Kingdom. To listen to samples, visit www.kerripowers.com

Jesse Ruben with Kate Vargas

$12 Adv / $15 At the Door

An evening with Jesse Ruben.
To listen to samples, visit www.jesseruben.com

The message that Brooklyn singer/songwriter Jesse Ruben has been spreading through his music is simple and direct. I can. You can. We Can. When Jesse originally wrote his song "We Can", he had just run the NYC Marathon and hoped to inspire people to start running. As it turns out, his message was meant to be much more universal. A few months after he released the track, a Vancouver elementary school reached out, saying they had been playing it to inspire their students. They asked Jesse to fly in and perform the song for their school, and so began "The We Can Project", which now spreads across North America.

Jesse began touring the country, visiting schools and helping students come up with personal goals and ways to give back to their community. Amazing things began to happen. Playgrounds were built. Gardens planted. Cancer walks organized.

Just as things were taking off, life threw a curveball. Jesse had just headlined and sold out his entire East Coast tour and was writing new music when he became incredibly ill. It took 9 months and more than a dozen doctors before he got his diagnosis: Lyme Disease. Jesse was so sick, he didn't think he would ever play music or lead a normal life again. Suddenly, the message he had been spreading to students over the past year rang truer than ever before. I can do this. It took two full years

-- Opening will be special guest Kate Vargas

An evening with John Craigie and Jessy Tomsko.
A special double feature.

If John Prine and Mitch Hedberg had a baby, the resulting product would resemble something very close to Portland, OR singersongwriter John Craigie. Musically comparable to Prine, with the humor and wit of Hedberg, the humble, gracious, and hilarious Craigie is one of the best storytellers of our time. It’s no wonder that Chuck Norris sends him fan mail, and Todd Snider brings him gifts on stage. The vagabond troubadour has charmed audiences in all 50 states and throughout much of Europe, with a DIY spirit seldom seen these days. While touring solo and with the likes of Todd Snider, the Shook Twins, Nicki Bluhm, and ALO, Craigie has taken the stage at festivals, sold out venues, intimate house concerts, center camp at Burning Man and even Gregory Alan Isakov’s farm. Although based in Portland, Craigie’s true home is on the road, and just like that he’s on to the next town, playing and singing and telling stories to everyone who wants to listen. He’ll make you laugh and make you cry, all in the same song. With a fan-base that is more of a continually-expanding circle of friends, John Craigie’s true passion is connecting with people through shared experiences, stories, and song.If John Prine and Mitch Hedberg had a baby, the resulting product would resemble something very close to Portland, OR singersongwriter John Craigie.

Michael McDermott

$18 Adv / $20 At the Door

An evening with Michael McDermott.
To listen to samples, visit www.michael-mcdermott.com

Michael McDermott’s brand of rock n’ roll brims with the kind of well-honed style and wisdom that can only come from a career on the road and a pedigree in the studio. Effortlessly blending natural folk sensibility, pop hooks, and honest rock, McDermott’s music is as much for the outcast as the congregation. It’s an exploration of the dark corners of life’s journey and it resonates middle class truths through the passionate filter of a kid that grew up on Chicago’s Irish South Side.

If you are a fan of Springsteen, Van Morrison, John Steinbeck, Patti Smith … McDermott’s inspirational rock is in your wheelhouse, waiting late night with a guitar, spare smokes and stories of the American heart.

“McDermott’s music helped me to find a part of myself that wasn’t lost, as I had feared, but only misplaced. That’s why we love the ones who are really good at it, I think: because they give us back ourselves, all dusted and shined up, and they do it with a smile… Michael McDermott is one of the best songwriters in the world and possibly the greatest undiscovered rock & roll talent of the last 20 years” -Stephen King

An evening with Quixote Project, Three Strands, and Jay Players.
A special triple feature.

The Quixote Project hails from New Jersey and are a roots music outfit that likes to sometimes walk the fine line of fusion. We are a neo-roots music outfit. From Rock to Rockabilly, Bluegrass to Blues we like to pull from traditional genres to blur the fine lines of modern music. "Frontman Jeff Selby and a revolving cast of musicians have distilled the multi-genre sounds of a beachfront music festival into a remarkably cohesive live set, with hints of bluegrass, folk, and rock in a style that would be pigeonholed as “jam” if the songwriting wasn’t so explicitly pop-oriented" says Dave Fox of MUSIC WITHOUT LABELS. To listen to samples, visit www.reverbnation.com/thequixoteproject

Three Strands began as creative outlet for Lancaster-Based singer/songwriter Sean Cox. In January 2017, he decided to develop a small collection of songs he had been writing into a new studio release. Due to their more delicate and narrative driven qualities, they fell outside the normal vibe of his then band "The Band of Rivals". He is currently working on a Debut EP which will be released later this year. Stylistically his songs draw from songwriters such as Amos Lee, Gregory Alan Isakov, and City and Colour as well as classic artists like Van Morrison and Neil Young. To listen to samples, visit www.facebook.com/threestrandsmusic

This Americana act, based around the songwriting of Keeley McCue and Chris Weidensaul, has developed from an acoustic duo into a full electric band set up as well. The recent inclusion of bassist Michael Broda and drummer Tyler Kollinok into the fold, has resulted in the live tracking of their debut album Glitter & Wine. Following a highly successful release show on Friday June 24th at the H*MAC Stage On Herr in Harrisburg, PA, with special guests Matt Wheeler & Vintage Heart and Vulcans, their album is available worldwide across all digital platforms (iTunes, Spotify etc.).

An evening with Mary Bragg and Anna Spackman.
A special double feature.

For seasoned Americana artist Mary Bragg, her rawest, most personal album to date—Lucky Strike—appeared when she hadn’t even been planning to record a new album. After finding success writing for and with other artists (her co-written song “Easier Than Leaving” appeared on Michaela Anne’s recent release and was featured in Rolling Stone), Bragg had begun to consider devoting herself solely to songwriting. Then, Lucky Strike co-producer Jim Reilley (of indie stalwarts The New Dylans) heard a few of Bragg’s songs and insisted that they be recorded. She agreed—but only if she could skip the fancy studios (and budgets). “Lucky Strike was recorded in a backyard barn studio, where the microphones are old, not expensive-vintage-old, just old. Where the pop filters have holes in them. Where the vocal booth is unfinished because real walls never got built. To listen to samples, visit www.marybragg.com

Anna Spackman has a shameless and enduring love for human beings, and music is its vehicle. Born and raised in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania, Anna first started hosting and performing at open mics when she was seventeen, and quickly started headlining at venues such as the Steel City Coffeehouse in Phoenixville and Seven Stones Cafe in Media. She lived in Portland, Oregon from 2008 to 2014, where she started, hosted, and featured at a monthly variety show called Art Anon at The Waypost. She has shared the stage with Chris Pureka, Amy Correia, and Jonah Luke, and has been featured several times at the Portland Poetry Slam. During her last two years in Portland, she worked as a MusicRx specialist at the Children’s Cancer Association, where she played music with hospitalized kids and teenagers with a variety of medical conditions.

An evening with Christine Havrilla and Gypsy Fuzz.
To listen to samples, visit www.christinehavrilla.com

Award-winning Philadelphia native Christine Havrilla 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.
