The Hook Songwriter Series 

Screen Shot 2022-09-22 at 6.04.07 PM.png

Avalon, Rich Hart & Dave Depasquale

October 14th  $12 adults, $10 students, $6 ages 6-17, ages 6 & under are free

Avalon is an acoustic duo composed of singer-songwriters Michael Judge and Juliet Forshaw. We play original songs that blend folk, renaissance, and musical theater styles, exploring the highs and lows of life through myth and fable. Our first album, Avalon, was released in 2017; our second album, My Evil Plan, in 2020.

Rich Hart is a singer songwriter, born and raised in the Oswego area. Rich's original music combines elements of folk, rock, pop, country, rhythm and blues. Lyrically, Rich's songs cover a wide variety of topics and situations. From birth to death (and beyond), relationship woes and triumphs, to society's ills, along with road trips and wild nights. Rich is looking forward to getting in the recording studio this fall, to bring some of his music to the next level.

Dave Depasquale: From country blues to classical, the six string guitar has harnessed his ear for the past 28 years. You'll hear echoes of many finger style guitar techniques, some discovered and some invented, planted like seeds throughout his playing. Coupled with evocative lyrical vignettes of characters in memorable moments, this artist will draw you into each story with a front row seat, and leave you to decide what happens next
