Jonathan Byrd | Opening: Corin Raymond
 
Friday, April 25, 2014   8:00 PM   ($15/$18)
“...a folk singer with the heart of a rock 'n' roll band.” — K. Oliver, Free Times

“One of the top 50 songwriters of the last 50 years. ” — Rich Warren of WFMT in the Chicago Tribune

“This rootsy North Carolinian may be the most buzzed-about new songwriter in folkdom. He displays John Prine's gift for stark little songs that tell big, complex stories, Guy Clark's lean melodicism, Lyle Lovett's wry mischief, and Bill Morrissey's knack for the revealing image.” — Scott Alarik, Boston Globe
Opening: Corin Raymond
"Corin Raymond puts the low in loneliness and the high in high-dee-ho."
 
Beth Wood | Opening: Daniel Makins
 
Friday, May 2, 2014   8:00 PM   ($15/$18)
Beth Wood is a modern-day troubadour and believer in the power of song. Her exceptional musicianship, crafty songwriting, and commanding stage presence have been winning over American audiences for sixteen years. Beth’s music is soulful, organic, intelligent, barefoot, high-energy communication of joy. Picture a home-body with an ever-present wanderlust, an introvert with a passion for performing, a creative free-spirit with enough discipline to rework her dream year after year, calloused little hands and a big pile of curly hair…and you’ve got Beth Wood.

“A superb singer/songwriter whose versatility discourages labeling.” — Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Opening: Daniel Makins
A songwriter from San Angelo, Texas. He is trying to live a good life....
 
The Flyin' A's | Grant Peeples
 
Friday, May 9, 2014   8:00 PM   ($15/$18)
The Flyin’ A’s duo have proven they are one of the most exciting acts emerging from the Texas music scene. With one listen you can tell they were both raised in the fertile land of Texas Songwriting. The Flyin’ A’s perform a powerful mix of original Americana, Country, Southern Blues, and “Texifide” Jazz that is exciting audiences of all ages. With Stuart’s strong songwriting and aggressive guitar mixed with Hilary’s soulful singing and lilting harmonies, this duo is exciting audiences across the North and Central America.
Grant Peeples, a finger-in-your-eye styled songwriter and 7th generation Floridian, is a former expatriate. He spent 11 years on a tiny island off the coast of Nicaragua, where he installed the island’s first flushing toilet. He returned in 2006 to a very different homeland. Grant's latest release, Punishing the Myth, is the third of a trilogy of records produced by legendary roots icon Gurf Morlix. John Conquest of 3rd Coast Music has named him songwriter of the year multiple times. Of his writing, Conquest says, “Unusually literate, unusually honest…Grant Peeples is the only songwriter I’ve ever called ruthless…”

Lucy Kaplansky | Opening: Katie Gosnell
 
Friday, June 20, 2014   8:00 PM   ($18/$22)
She started out singing in Chicago bars. Then, barely out of high school, Lucy Kaplansky took off for New York City. There she found a fertile community of songwriters and performers—Shawn Colvin, Suzanne Vega, John Gorka, Bill Morrissey, Cliff Eberhardt, and others—where she fit right in. Then, convinced that her calling was in another direction, Lucy left the musical fast track to pursue a doctorate in psychology, which she practiced professionally for many years. Luckily for us, her former singing partner Colvin convinced her that the two of them should make a record together. The Tide was released to rave reviews in 1994, and suddenly Lucy was back in the music business, and no going back this time. Five more solo albums and several collaborations later (Cry Cry Cry, with Dar Williams and Richard Shindell, and the current Red Horse, with Gorka and Eliza Gilkyson), she remains one of our most formidable writers and interpreters of song.
Opening: Katie Gosnell
 
Lisa Markley | William Foley
 
Friday, June 27, 2014   8:00 PM   ($15/$18)
Lisa Markley's music is an exuberant blend of Jazz, Folk and Blues--her diverse style defies labels. A multi-instrumentalist, Lisa graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Music Composition. In 2000 Lisa received "Honorable Mention" in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for two of her songs (in both the jazz and in the folk categories). She went on that same year to win the B.W. Stevenson Songwriting Contest. Lisa was a semifinalist in the Wildflower! Festival Performing Songwriter Contest in 2003, and was one of 10 regional singer/songwriters chosen by the Kerrville Folk Festival in 2001 and in 2004.

Mr. Foley is a graduate of the University of North Texas College of Music with a degree in jazz studies. He has also studied with Kenny Werner, Sanford Gold and at Columbia University. With a keen interest in harmony and strong melodies that take you places, William Foley’s compositions defy easy classification.
