The genre-bending trio—Margo Hennebach, Adrienne Jones and Mark Saunders— have won hearts on two continents. This iteration sees them using only one microphone, around which they form and re-form, early-radio style.

Can something be wry, aching, hysterical, evocative, provocative, fun, beautifully sung, and consummately played all at once? That would be Vance Gilbert. Vance truly happens live. In fact, he developed his reputation with his jaw-dropping, funny, devastating, and gorgeous live performances. Arlo Guthrie, Anita Baker, the late George Carlin have all requested Vance to be added to their bills. He exploded onto the scene in the early 90’s, with buzz spreading quickly. After opening Shawn Colvin’s 1992 Fat City tour, he took much of America by storm and by surprise. “With the voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god, it was enough to earn him that rarity: an encore for an opener,” wrote the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in its review of a show.

Special Guest Opener Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers

A grand prize winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and Sammy Award winner for Best Americana, he plays kinetic folk rock, combining vivid imagery and storytelling with masterful band-in-a-box guitar playing.

“JPR may be the quintessential acoustic singer-songwriter,” as NYS Music put it, “but he colors with a full palette of folk, rock, blues, and soul.”
