Fine traditional music, where it started - right at home.
September 17, 2017, 5:00 Sunday - Kevin Neidig: From Pennsylvania, Kevin Neidig is one of the cleanest, most consistent players that I know. He excels on all three of his instruments; guitar, banjo and mandolin, and offers an amazingly diverse repertoire grounded in traditional Americana styles. Clear and powerfully emotive, Kevin's voice commands you to listen time and again as you marvel at how your soul is stirred. He delivers impeccably crafted, hand-hewn tunes - a perfect turn of word here, transforming melodies there - lush, tuneful journeys. www.kevinneidig.com
A jam session will follow the concert and a potluck dinner precedes it.

October 22, 2017, 5:00 - Claude Bourbon is coming from Europe and playing blues-influenced music from many countries as well as some of his own compositions. "A classically trained musician, who fuses every conceivable genre of acoustic guitar music into a master-class of a stage performance. There are Latin, Spanish, Gypsy, Jazz and Delta Blues influences throughout, and often within one seamless stream of perfection. "
March 4, 2018 - Bob Bovee - Since 1971 Bob has taken rural music as played in homes, at dances and for earlier entertainments such as minstrel shows and country radio. Along with a repertoire including dance tunes, ballads, cowboy songs, humorous and sentimental numbers, blues and rags, he spices their shows with stories, history and folklore. Bob sings (yodels, too) and plays guitar, harmonica, banjo and autoharp. Boy, am I looking forward to this!
