  • Randy Brown bought a $10 guitar on credit at the tender age of 12 and started writing songs at the age of 14. In high school and college he fell in with a band of godless heathen hippie musicians and the rest is history. After moving from the big city of Dallas to the sleepy town of Mineola,TX in 1974 he took whatever musical jobs he could get playing in various country bar bands for 15 years or so. Upon meeting finger style guitar wizard John DeFoore and cellist extraordinaire Dirje Childs in 1994 they formed a band called "Jealousy Motel" who during their 8 year career produced 2 CDs in their time. After that, BrownRandy decided that a solo career fit him better and spent 11 years as a solo singer/songwriter winning a number of songwriting awards as well as recordin 2 solo CDs (Dream Big in 2007 and "But Wait, There's More"... In 2013). Tiring of the solo world slightly, he began looking for like minded and talented musicians to shear up his cause, and the The Pine Curtain came to life, with Kurt Bittner (B-bender wizard) and multiethnic percussionist JB Smith.
  • Best summed up by: "Janet Feld is a funny, literate and thoughtful country folkie in the mold of Mary Chapin Carpenter. The Somerville resident has a gift for a lilting melody and a thoughtful turn of phrase." -- Sarah Rodman

  • After critically acclaimed commercial releases on label homes, fan favorite independent releases on his own Lotos Nile Music imprint, song placement on numerous independent films, thirty plus years of celebrated live performing and songs covered by artists as diverse as Alison Krauss, Waylon Jennings, Sam Bush, Blackhawk, Jerry Douglas, and Dierks Bentley, Jeff continues to solidify his reputation as a creative force in the roots genres. Continuing to evolve as a writer, performer and recording artist, Black has never before expressed so much of the creative process on his own terms, deepening his work and leaving the listener with some of Black’s most fully formed and resonant music of his career. This is a show not to be missed. Jedd Beaudoin of Pop Matters proclaims, "The tradition of an artist delivering songs that are damn near perfectly crafted and filled with the wisdom of the ages."
  • Dave Sherman sings about real life experiences – family, faith, work, winning the Publisher’s Clearing House and Duct Tape! Dave walks his audiences through a lifetime of creative writing. He escorts his audiences from Mayberry to see Andy and Barney, to Alaska to witness the Gold Rush and to a hospital corridor to hear a baby girl being born.

  • Wheatfield is a quartet of music and songwriting veterans. The group originated in Houston TX back in the 70's. After a 25 year hiatus, the band reformed and began to write and perform again in 2004. Wheatfield consists of Craig Calvert, Connie Mims, Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet. Their music is diverse as the members of the band and made stronger by that diversity. An evening with Wheatfield runs the gamut of songs written by the younger band as well as newer songs that deal with life from the perspective of 30 plus years after the band's inception. Wheatfield is not content to be a museum piece echoing its past. It's an alive, forward moving unit.
