Karen Savoca & Pete Heitzman

February 22nd                             $14-$17
Annual Meeting 4:30 ~ Pot Luck Dinner 5:15pm ~ Show 7:30pm

Grit and sensitivity. Percussion and groove. Karen Savoca and Pete Heitzman are sinuous as two skaters gliding on ice as they play across soul, R&B, roots and world rhythms, conjuring a communion between audience and stage.  It’s no wonder they were recently  inducted into the SAMMY Hall Of Fame.  


In the words of Russ Tarby of the Syracuse New Times, "Savoca and Heitzman kicked off the show with an absolutely transcendent set and added an eighth SAMMY to their collection. The music they make together resonates from Mother Earth to the wide blue heavens."


"If she were a Native American, her name would be Sings Like Two Birds.”  

~Greg Brown


"Heitzman has a sly touch that, combined with Savoca’s in-the-pocket drumming and spectacularly soulful vocals, gives the duo the impact of a four-piece band.” 

~!Acoustic Guitar Magazine


"An addictive blend of hybrid pop with lots of jazz whimsy and slippery funk."  ~Dirty Linen

Jay Ungar & Molly Mason

March 7th                                      $17-$20
Doors at 7pm Show at 7:30pm

He was a Bronx kid. She grew up in Washington State. He was raised on pop music of the 1940s and ’50s. She had a fondness for traditional fiddle music and ’30s and ’40s popular tunes. He hung out in Greenwich Village coffeehouses and roamed North Carolina and Tennessee in search of traditional players. She played clubs and colleges on the West Coast and took a liking to the jazzy sound of the Swing Era. Since joining forces—both artistically and romantically, Jay Ungar and Molly Mason have become one of the most celebrated duos on the American acoustic music scene.


These extraordinary musicians won international acclaim after Ken Burns’ The Civil War hit the airwaves. Their performance of Jay’s haunting composition Ashokan Farewell — the musical hallmark of the PBS series — left a lasting impression on everyone who tuned in. The soundtrack won a Grammy and Ashokan Farewell was nominated for an Emmy.


Jay & Molly are masters of music and storytelling who generously share their lives and their music with audiences. There are so many moments and strands to savor in the course of the evening!


Jay’s fiddling is brimming with playfulness, drama, soulfulness and technical verve, as he explores the many musical styles and idioms that he has internalized and made his own. Molly’s total mastery and inventiveness on piano and guitar is always spot-on, as she supports the tunes and follows the flow of the melody. Her rich and expressive vocals along with the resonant strains of Jay’s violin, reveal the deep emotions that flow in the duos veins.

“If you're one of those people who likes any style done well— old-school jazz, folk, pop, classical— you’ll love this prodigiously talented threesome. Keyboards, brass, all sorts of strings, and beautiful singing make for a dynamic show packed with energy and surprises.” ~Sarah Craig, Caffe Lena

The Ruddy Well Band

May 2nd                                            $13-$16
Doors at 7pm Show at 7:30pm

A homegrown entity formed in Syracuse, the Ruddy Well Band has emerged as one of Central New York’s premier performing string bands. A finely-crafted combination of dynamic rhythms, tight harmonies, and mindful lyrics— the acoustic instrumentalists bring their audience fun, foot-stomping Americana.

Although members of the band have played together in different forms since 2008, officially the Ruddy Well Band was created in 2011 with the release of their self- produced album, Little Blue Marble. Continuing to evolve, they produced Change of Course in 2013 and Building a Fire in 2015. In 2017, Ruddy Well orchestrated the album Common Ground at SubCat Studios featuring original songs sung by the band as

well as local Syracuse area musicians. All proceeds of the album were given to the non-for profit In My Father’s Kitchen.

The Ruddy Well Band— Andrew Ruddy. Monique Ritter, Ryan Burdick, Blake Propst— received a Sammy for Best Americana Album (Change of Course) and received a second Sammy in 2014 for People’s Choice for Best Band.

"So the musical chemistry began... Ruddy and Ritter of Pulaski and Burdick of Baldwinsville are cutting into a huge slice of Americana pie as The Ruddy Well Band."

~Mark Bialczak, Post Standard

“There’s no ambiguity when it comes to figuring out who and what they are. They’re straight-ahead acoustic charm wrapped up in passionate and ample fiddle lines and earnest songwriting.”
~Jessica Novak, Syracuse New Times
