Switchback

Switchback!

For over two decades, Brian FitzGerald and Martin McCormack, known as Switchback, have entertained crowds with their unique American Roots ~ Celtic Soul blend of music. Brian and Martin play an exciting mix of mandolin, guitar, and bass. Their harmonies have won them comparisons to famous duos, such as the Louvin Brothers, the Everly Brothers, and Simon and Garfunkel. Their Celtic music is authentically Irish, with equal respect for traditional and modern artists and styles.
$15 in advance; $20 at the door.

Bruce Molsky

Bruce Molsky!

Master fiddler/multi-instrumentalist, Bruce Molsky is a folklorist, handselecting songs learned from field recordings, festivals, and old-timers. If It Ain’t Here When I Get Back is the title of Molsky’s March 2013 release. It is an aural autobiography, paying tribute to the people Molsky has lived his musical life with over the past 45 years and incorporating the sounds of his travels. “Community is integral to the music,” Molsky explains. “Most of us started playing in a social context. The music is all about pulse and heartbeat - everybody has that, it’s just expressed a little differently in different places. There’s always common ground that we can find.”
$10 in advance; $15 at the door.

WORKSHOP TBA; call Jim for info: 314 640 3458

Brooks Williams

Brooks Williams!

Brooks Williams writes groove-laden songs and delivers them with an easygoing vocal style and monstrous guitar chops. Walking the line between blues and Americana, Williams has worked stages worldwide for over 25 years, amassing a staggering back-catalogue of songs, recordings and tales. With nearly 20 CDs to his name – and more on the way – this Statesboro Georgia native is, according to americanaUK, “impossible not to like." Brooks comes with the best possible reference for any guitarist: Martin Simpson says, “I’ve known Brooks for many years. He’s a lovely player, a lovely singer, and a great writer and a lovely man. The real thing.”
$10 in advance; $15 at the door.

Pop Wagner and Bob Bovee!

Pop has quite the reputation as a singer, picker, fiddler, lasso twirler, poet and downright funny guy. His cowboy anthems crackle with the warmth of a prairie campfire and his old time fiddle tunes set toes a-tappin' while he serves up spellbinding rope tricks and tall stories -- all with a good dose of friendly humor. Bob is a kindred soul: No one handles old-time cowboy and humorous songs better than Bob. His vocals are hauntingly rough. His guitar and harmonica are as good as you will ever hear. Whether performing in concert, playing for a barn dance, or on a recording, these two leave you wanting more.
$10 in advance; $15 at the door.

T & A! (aka Tom and Alice)

Two of the major voices in the Geyer Street Sheiks, Tom Hall and Alice Spencer, have been exploring their peculiar brand of American musical heritage for many years, and have collected a huge hoard of the coolest songs ever! The blend is superb, the aesthetic is one you'll appreciate, and the show will be incredibly good.
