WELCOMED BY FIDDLING CRICKET CONCERTS
Thu. July 7 at 7:30pm $15 adv./$15 door SEATED <21 W/PARENT
Once you hear Jonathan Edwards' voice, you'll want to hear it again and again. His rich, warm tenor has a distinctively
unique and natural quality. Jonathan has acquired an enviable track record, one of skill and grace in the sometimes brutal
world of the music business. And he has done it while keeping intact his ear for a strong melody and love of a beautifully
crafted song. During his 36-year career he has recorded 15 albums and penned such notable hits as "Shanty" and
"Sunshine", which earned him a gold record in 1971. This classic song, covered by Paul Westerberg, is included in the 1995
release of "Friends", a compilation of music for the hit NBC-TV show, and is heard in the 1994 Will Ferrell film
―Anchorman‖ and included on the soundtrack. His 1987 children's album, "Little Hands", selected by the National Library
Association as a "Notable Children's Recording", has sold over 20,000 copies and is still going strong. Jonathan's first studio
CD in 14 years is "My Love Will Keep" (Appleseed Recordings) contains a dozen songs, including five new songs from the
tranquil ―Surrounded,‖ a similarly nature-centric ―Johnny Blue Horizon‖ (inspired by John Denver), the raucous ―Crazy
Texas Woman,‖ the bluegrass romp ―How Long‖ to ―Lightkeeper,‖ written for the same-titled movie, a celebration of the
world‘s oceans. Artist sites and sounds: www.jonathanedwards.net

Zach Deputy plus Christopher Hawley Rollers
Fri. July 8 at 9pm $10 adv./$10 door DANCE AGES 21 +
There is nothing out there like Zach Deputy. Truly a one-man dance band, he is a powerhouse of performance, technical
chops, and one hell of a charismatic presence. Put simply, Zach Deputy does what is called live looping: layering sounds
through the magic of technology to create a full band effect. He isn‘t the only performer out there doing this, but he has taken
the technique to the next level. First and foremost, however, Zach Deputy is a songwriter, a shredding guitarist and a soulful
singer with a 4+ octave vocal range. The Zach Deputy sound is essentially roots rock, but in his case the roots are in soul,
calypso and dancehall, underpinned by driving hip-hop, rock steady, Motown and Stax backbeats. Christopher Hawley
Rollers: with the much-anticipated third album, Comes Around Again, the open-hearted troubadour will bring his feel-good
music to an even wider audience. With a soulful, resonant voice evoking the likes of John Fogerty, Johnny Cash, and Bob
Weir, Hawley is poised to augment the extent of his foray into American music consciousness and continue to warm hearts
everywhere Artist sites and sounds: www.zachdeputy.com and www.christopherhawley.net

THE BRICK ALBUM FROM THE GREENCARDS FUSES GRAMMY NOMINEES‘ ECLECTIC INFLUENCES WITH ONSTAGE
ENERGY. From the first notes struck together in 2003 through tours with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, up to and beyond
their fourth studio album in 2009, The Greencards have won steadily escalating acclaim for their multi-dimensional
Americana vision. Each step they‘ve taken has widened their appeal. Their releases have topped the Billboard Bluegrass
charts. In both 2008 (for their Viridian album) and 2010 (for Fascination), they were nominated for Grammy Awards in the
―Best Country Instrumental‖ category. They‘ve earned ovations from ―newgrass‖ music devotees at MerleFest and from
indie-rock loyalists at Lollapalooza and the Austin City Limits Festival. RollingStone.com noted ―This imported band is
creating some of the finest Americana around.‖ But this four-piece band, spearheaded by Australians Carol Young and Kym
Warner, is interested less in past accomplishments than in looking ahead for new goals to achieve. Produced and engineered
by studio veteran Justin Niebank (Vince Gill, Marty Stuart, Keith Urban), The Brick Album on the band‘s own Darling Street
Records is the first to successfully infuse The Greencards‘ eclectic musical references with the excitement they generate
onstage. Artist sites and sounds: www.thegreencards.com

Foreveland is a 14-piece tribute to one of the most amazing entertainers in the world, Mr. Michael Jackson.

"Remarkable and Rocking Michael Jackson Revue." Rather than be limited by a MJ impersonator and pre-recorded backing
tracks, the band's unique approach is to celebrate the larger than life performances, imagination and infectious spirit of this
legendary artist. The result is a fabulous and thumping 14-piece show band that pays homage to MJ's undeniable talent and

PRESENTED WITH SNAZZY PRODUCTIONS
Sun. July 24 at 7pm $12 adv./$12 door SEATED <21 W/PARENT
Terri Hendrix: A classically trained vocalist and deft multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin and harmonica), Hendrix is a
firm believer in the theory that ―life‘s too short for one genre,‖ dodging musical pigeonholes by weaving folk, pop, country,
blues and swinging jazz into an eclectic style all her own. And now she has a book. The award-winning singer-songwriter‘s
first book is two books in one: part companion piece to her latest album, ―Cry Till You Laugh,” with lyrics, photos and essays
linked to the songs on the record, and part how-to guide for going your own way in the music business. The essays dance
from ―cry‖ to ―laugh‖ and back again, touching candidly on everything from hilarious road stories and stage-fright jitters to
poignant matters of the heart. It may sound like a crazy mix, but as any fan of Terri Hendrix‘s music can attest, that‘s Terri to
a ―T.‖ Canadian sensation Billy Manzik's musical journey began where Highway 61 ends, in Thunder Bay Ontario. The
soundtrack for his upbringing was provided by his guitar slinging, country singing mother, and influenced by roots rock, old
rhythm and blues, not to mention Billy's penchant for wandering the continent. The result is a driving blues rock sound,
complete with catchy riffs, lyrical hooks and a 'feel-good' toe tapping kind of style. Billy's new release is AllTogetherNow.

Sleepy Sun, Howlin Rain, Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound
Presented by (((folkYEAH!)))
Wed. July 27 at 9pm $10 adv./$12 door DANCE AGES 21 +
Sleepy Sun: Sleepy Sun is a California band from many Californias. They hail from the rolling oak and sage hills of Sierra
Gold Country, The San Francisco Peninsula, where Kesey raged and the Dead were once Warlocks, and the forever-sunshine
climes of the Southland. They came together young and garage strutting in the coastal Northern California crucible of Santa
Cruz. And there they birthed the Sleepy sound dead blues shaken alive, razor sharp and ramblin', soul, sonic science and
dead-on pop surgery. Wooden, earthy, stratospheric, and swinging California music of beautiful contrasts for conflicted
times. Their latest ATP release Fever is the honey harmonies and danger wailing of Bret Constantino; the wing-on-wing
guitars of Matt Holliman and Even Reiss in screaming dives and sweet ascending circles; the lowdown served up tough and
thundering from drum and bass authorities Brian Tice and Jack Allen.
Howlin Rain: The classically soulful Howlin Rain released their eponymous first album in 2006 on Birdman Records and
their second 'Magnificent Fiend' in 2008 on Birdman/American Recordings. In late 2010 Howlin Rain released the EP "The
Good Life" via American and Birdman records.
Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound: San Francisco‘s Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound is a soundtrack for strange days
and futures bright and bleak. But there is also a crooked thread that runs backward through every Assemble Head record—the
celestial trajectories of The Notorious Byrd Brothers and circa ‗70 Floyd; the dusty canyon stomps of Crazy Horse, slashing
action pop of the savage young Who, Italian bastardizations of Lalo Schifrin cop movie scores, and the scuzz-bomb shrapnel
of latter-day garage mongers like Mudhoney and MonoshockArtist sites and sounds: www.sleepysun.net and

Thu. July 28 at 9:30pm $15 adv. /$15 door DANCE AGES 21 +
David Keenan/Glasgow/March 2010 writes: With a title like At Echo Lake, the fifth album from New York‘s Woods
intimates a modern rock aesthetic fully informed by historical manifestations of teenage along with a concomitant feel for the
specifics of time and place. The distance between 2007‘s At Rear House and 2010‘s At Echo Lake may at first seem only
semantic but it more properly represents a move from a kind of informal back porch jam ethos to a fully-committed vision of
the infinite possibilities of group playing. Woods‘ secret weapon is the quality of (Jeremy) Earl‘s voice, osmosing the naive
style of Jad Fair, Jonathan Richman and Neil Young while re-thinking it as a discipline and a tradition. Here he is singing at
the peak of his powers, in a high soulful style that is bolstered by heavenly arrangements of backing vocals. Artist sites and

attention-deficit-disorder rock. Or maybe we should just call it Forrest Day, the Bay-area bandleader who‘s releasing his self-
titled full-length debut on the Ninth Street Opus label. Day‘s amusingly confessional songwriting dabbles in social
commentary about corporate greed (―Hoarders‖) and our overmedicated society (―Meds‖), among other concerns. But he
returns again and again to everyday struggles common to itinerant musicians and non-musicians alike: bad bosses, lost jobs,
debt collectors, and the girlfriend as muse or unwitting patron of the arts. Hovering Breadcat: Formed in 2010 in the
excitement of festival fairgrounds and late night shenanigans, The Hovering Breadcat Folk Ensemble is a Bay Area collective
of veteran musicians performing heartfelt Americana and Folk Rock Grooves with a modern flair. An eclectic gathering of
talented players, Hovering Breadcat is led by Derek Bodkin (Five Eyed Hand, The Trailer Park Troubadours) and includes

Few husband-wife musical duos provide audiences with the complete entertainment package that Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart
dish out in a live performance. Armed with clever acoustic guitar interplay, autobiographical songwriting, lovely harmonies,
and humorous storytelling this couple captivates your attention from the first moment they are onstage. Based out of
Tennessee, Earle and Stuart draw from blues, pop, country, rock, and more in their heartfelt music. The years of touring the
folk/Americana circuit (playing 170 concerts a year) have given them a knack for reaching out to the audience in an intimate
―come in to my living room‖ fashion. Stacey and Mark own their own record label, Gearle Records, and have made 8 CDs
over the years. Since meeting in 1992 and marrying in late 1993, the partners have toured the USA, Canada, and Europe
repeatedly. They left the environment of pursuing a major label deal in Nashville in 1998 to target small intimate venue
crowds in theaters, coffeehouses, festivals, clubs, and house concerts. This has become their home and they are a recognized
fixture on the folk music trail they blaze. Artist sites and sounds: www.staceyandmark.com

Jenna Mammina Joins Brian Gore August 16th for her "Sing Strings: Lyric and Lyre" debut. Jenna is a world class singer
with eclectic musical tastes who has been singled out three times by Jazziz Magazine as a leading woman in the Jazz-
crossover genre. Whether it be a rendition of a classic jazz standard, or a well-known pop tune or one of her own
compositions, the end result is the same. ―She doesn‘t just cover Warren Zevon, Elvis Costello and James Taylor, she
reupholsters them,‖ says Hew Hallock. She unwinds a song as if each word dangled from a string of twinkling charms and
delicately snaps consonants like wishbones.‖ Ben Fong-Torres couldn‘t agree more. ―She teases it, toys with it, laughs with
it, vocally dances with it, and, ultimately, the singer, and the song embrace one another, to the pleasure of the audience,‖ he
says. ―If these disks inspire you to seek out one of her club or concert engagements, be forewarned: You‘ll have fun.‖ Known
as a ―poet of the guitar,‖ Brian Gore’s emotive, expressive style combines influences from folk, jazz and classical music.
Ron Forbes-Roberts of Acoustic Guitar Magazine says, ―Gore‘s finely crafted poetic ‘songs without words‘ take the listener

been pushing back the boundaries of whatís possible on the bass guitar for over two decades. While his technical skill and
innovations always make an impression, it is his ability to communicate on a profound emotional level that most touches
listeners. Peter Janson: Considered a "gifted acoustic fingerstyle guitar player" (Dirty Linen), Peter Janson's brand of

lifetime of prolific creativity in a style that epitomizes the form, he‘s regarded as one of the genre‘s leading lights. (Paul has
been a Surfari since 1989.) Gil Orr was a child prodigy in the ‗50‘s playing country music on TV and radio. He took to rock

Sam Baker's is a hard-hewn grace, transcendentally wrought with grit, brutally chiaroscuroed by a weary deliverance sought
in common lives. His first album, 2004's Mercy, grasped for a deeper understanding of the dark tragedies beyond our control
– a return to the Peruvian train rent by a bomb that nearly killed him in 1986 – then Pretty World (2007) was its
reconciliation, a turn outward with grateful eyes renewed by contemplation. Persistent in Baker's vision is an empathetic
evocation of treading life's stilled waters, beauty welled in the dirt of daily endurance. His characters, drawn with the insight
of Townes Van Zandt and John Prine, toil unglamorously, overlooked save for Baker's rough, sing-talk psalms giving them
fitting voice. Jon Dee Graham is a legend on the Austin music scene. He‘s been inducted into the Austin Music Hall of
Fame three times, in 2000 as a solo artist, in 2008 as a member of the Skunks, and in 2009 as a member of the True
Believers. In 2006, the readers of the Austin Chronicle named him Austin Musician of the Year. In 2008, Graham was the

she introduces, Mary is always ending up with more questions. Where do her people come from and where do they go?
How can they find shelter from the storm? What is the truth? Tania Elizabeth, formerly of The Duhks, joins Mary adding
big fiddle flavors: "(Tania's) interest in violin playing extends beyond her deep virtuosity in the art of Canadian-Celtic
fiddling to further exploration of the art of improvising and shaping melody and phrasing in other styles such as Jazz and
Rhythm & Blues." - Darol Anger Artist sites and sounds: www.marygauthier.com and www.taniaelizabeth.com

California girl comes by her mountain-music sensibility with true authenticity, with original songs deeply rooted in her
family's frontier experience," (Dan Ruby, FestivalPreview.com.) A descendant of Cornish miners who sang in the mines, Rita
grew up with deep regard for folk music and the power of the voice. Misner & Smith: Misner & Smith bring a freshness

Matt The Electrician          CD Release Tour Accidental Thief
Mon. Sept. 26 at 7:30pm $10 adv./$10 door SEATED <21 W/PARENT
Austin based quirky acoustic pop artist Matt The Electrician is touring behind his new CD: Accidental Thief. Once upon a
time, there was a youg man named Matt Sever. He lived in Austin, TX, and he worked as a journeyman electrician. Every
morning, when it was still dark outside, he would go to work, and wire houses all day long in the blistering Texas heat. When
he would come home, again, it was dark outside. And then, sometimes, with no time to shower or change his clothes, he
would go straight to the bars and nightclubs of Austin to play his songs for whomever would listen. And he would apologize
for his appearance, and explain to the audience that he was an electrician, and he found a certain nobility in this, even if no
one wanted to sit too close to the stage. So they called him Matt The Electrician, and he did not mind this, for he was proud
of himself, for there is no shame in a hard days work.But eventually, he quit his job as an electrician, to spend more time
writing and playing songs, and the name stuck with him, because everyone needs an electrician sometimes. And there are
some who say, that when the moon is full, and Jupiter is aligned with Mars, you can often hear Matt The Electrician in the
distance, wiring a house, and whistling softly to himself. Artist sites and sounds: www.matttheelectrician.com

Since forming in the early 1990's, Old Blind Dogs have stood on the cutting edge of Scotlands roots revival. The band has
developed its own trademark style with an energetic mix of songs and tunes. Dynamic percussion, polished vocals, soaring
fiddle and stirring pipes fuel the delicately-phrased melodies and traditional songs. "The Old Blind Dogs play with a
compelling energy and intoxicating rhythm," says The Scotsman, "as players and audience seem to share a wild ecstasy of
emotion." Sixteen years is a long time in the life of any band and most who reach that milestone are content to rest on the
tried and true formulas that have worked in the past. Not so for Scotlands Old Blind Dogs whose newly released Four on the
Floor takes them bravely in many new directions. Artist sites and sounds: www.oldblinddogs.co.uk/index.asp Buy Tickets

John Lennon was wrongfully taken from this world on December 8th, 30 years ago. This December 7th, on the eve of his
passing, we celebrate the life and work of John Lennon with Drew Harrison as he presents ‗In The Spirit of Lennon‘. Drew
Harrison, the gifted leader of the musically remarkable and very popular The Beatles tribute band The Sun Kings, presents an
evening of John Lennon‘s music. Drew Harrison is a genuine troubadour. Born in New York City, naturally drawn to music,
Drew's childhood nursery rhyme was Dear Prudence; his adolescent superheroes: Stevie Wonder, Elton John and John
Lennon. His plans of becoming a brain surgeon were usurped by dreams of playing music and making a difference, in the
footsteps of Lennon. His solo original CD Go It Alone is a result of an intense period, filled with rawness and emotion. It‘s
just his voice and acoustic guitar, baring his soul lyrically and vocally. It has been said that when Drew is singing it‘s as if he
is singing for his life. Drew Harrison has the ability to translate the comedies and tragedies of life into a warm amalgam of
sounds. He sings with passion and a voice that touches deep inside, and plays as if a full band was his guitar. Artist sites and
