Ray Bonneville with Abbye West Pates

$15 Adv / $18 At the Door

An evening with Ray Bonneville.
To listen to samples, visit www.raybonneville.com

Ray Bonneville is most comfortable playing music on the road. The whole thing started when he was just a boy; hearing old country music on his grandmother’s big wood radio, he remembers putting his ear right up to the grill cloth so he wouldn’t miss anything. Whether he knew it or not, he kid was already hooked! His rebellious nature and wandering spirit set him out on a life of musical searching.

Today his music and songs reflect the curves and bumps of life’s erratic road. He has been writing his own songs for close to three decades, often choosing to write about those characters living on the outer fringes of society.

Danielle Miraglia and Robinson Treacher

$15 Cover$15 Cover

An evening with Danielle Miraglia and Robinson Treacher.
A special double feature.

Danielle Miraglia comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips. Her latest "All My Heroes Are Ghosts," released with her band Danielle M and The Glory Junkies touches on a lot of what might be on your mind these days – the loss of so many musical heroes on the title track, the chaos of “fake news” on “Monster,” the general sense that the world is on fire on “All On Fire,” the more personal with the death of a complicated loved one on “Guilt Trip” and more. The music itself blends influences of some of Miraglia’s own musical heroes - The Rolling Stones, Prince, Janis Joplin along with Danielle's lyrical ability to explore human nature at its best and worst. Danielle was nominated for a 2015 Boston Music Award for Singer-Songwriter of the Year. To listen to samples, visit www.daniellem.com

At the crossroads of Blues, Folk and Americana lies Robinson Treacher. Whether it be in the studio or in live performance, Robinson's emotionally dramatic songwriting style is matched only by his deeply passionate vocals. Steeped in what can only be labeled as a "traditional" songwriting format, Robinson has taken fibers from all genres. Including rock, country, R&B & folk, and woven them into a distinct tapestry, one that is clearly distinguishable among others in the singer/songwriter genre. Born and raised in New York, his honesty and grit reflect the eclectic musical influences that have shaped everything from from downstate New York City to the upstate Adirondacks. On the heels of his debut release, "Chrome", Robinson has released "Porches", a purposefully "stripped down" collection of songs that rarely contains more than an acoustic guitar, an upright bass and of course those powerfully distinct vocals. He has shared the stage with the likes of Iris Dement, G.E. Smith, Jorma Kaukonen and Vince Gill to name a few. To listen to samples, visit www.robinsontreacher.com

John Flynn with Katie Barbato

$20 Adv / $25 At the Door

An evening with John Flynn.
To listen to samples, visit www.johnflynn.net

John Flynn is an American singer-songwriter and activist known for his powerful music and tireless efforts on behalf of “the lost and the lonely, the shackled and scarred.” His career has embodied an authentic troubadour odyssey that moved legendary folk DJ Gene Shay to call Flynn "the most quintessential folk singer in my life", and Andrew L. Braunfeld of the Philadelphia Folk Festival to say, "It has been disappointing that the world of folk music has not, during the last half century, been creating many new heroes. John Flynn is a notable exception, and is worthy of our respect as he follows the paths of Woody Guthrie, Phil Ochs and Kris Kristofferson."

Over three and a half decades, John Flynn’s music has carried him from Jersey shore bars to Nashville’s Music Row; from home plate performances in major league ballparks to concerts in maximum-security prisons; from star-studded benefit shows at Tipitina’s in New Orleans to awareness-building appearances at the Walter Reed Military Hospital and the Dover Air Force Base. Along the way Flynn has continued to make new friends and fans as he has given of his defiantly unguarded heart and optimistic spirit from large and small stages, living rooms, pulpits and schools across this country.

TFDI

$20 Adv / $25 At the Door

An evening with TFDI.
To listen to samples, visit www.tfdifest.com

It all started early fall 2009, Tony Lucca & Jay Nash co-headlined a tour which featured Matt Duke as support. The bromance was set into motion. Early in the tour, the three recognized that they had great musical chemistry with their three part harmony and different, yet complementary approaches to guitar.

On a day off, 09/09/09, to be exact Lucca, Nash and Duke recorded four songs in an impromptu session at SPACE in Evanston, IL. Upon hearing those recordings, management and Rykodisc almost immediately put a plan together to release them as a four song EP. Two months later, the TFDI EP was released and quickly rose to number 1 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and stayed there for weeks. That EP has sold nearly 30,000 digital copies to date. Tony Lucca, Jay Nash and Matt Duke joined forces again in 2010 for a national tour that was largely sold out, and wrote and recorded the TFDI full length When I Stop Running.

That tour schedule was cut short by Tony Lucca's success on The Voice. In 2016, TFDI played together again for the first time in five years and decided that they needed to record more music together. Beggars & Ballers is TFDI's first release in nearly six years.

Rachael Sage and Nalani & Sarina

$12 Cover$12 Adv / $15 At the Door

An evening with Rachael Sage and Nalani & Sarina.
A special double feature.

Since founding her own label MPress Records two decades ago, NYC-based alt-pop artist Rachael Sage has steadily released a slew of vibrant, dynamic albums with poetic lyrics spanning subjects as wide as her inspirations. She has toured with an eclectic list of artists including Ani DiFranco, Beth Hart, Sarah McLachlan, Judy Collins and Howard Jones. Sage also continues to significantly grow her visibility via her many song placements, having recently landed her 22nd song on top reality show Dance Moms, translating into over 10 million YouTube hits. Her upcoming album Myopia (due May 4) is a bold departure for Sage, with a much stronger emphasis on her guitar playing over her signature piano palette. To listen to samples, visit www.rachaelsage.com

Getting music fans to agree on anything is next to impossible. That’s why the quick rise of sisters Nalani & Sarina — from a small town in west-central New Jersey to national notoriety and recognition — is such an astounding story. These two audacious young artists have developed a distinctive blend of traditionalist soul-rock and modern pop, and their stylistic alchemy is likely to keep their faces in the spotlight for years to come. You might say that Nalani & Sarina were born in stereo: they’re identical mirror twins. Nalani plays her guitar right-handed; Sarina is a lefty.

The band has released two studio recordings: “The EP” (2015) and a self-titled full-length “Man About a Horse” (2017), which debuted at #11 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart, and earned widespread praise, including from Bluegrass Unlimited, the bluegrass genre’s premier magazine for 50 years.

Man About a Horse was formed in 2014 by Philadelphia musicians, Matt Thomas (bass) and Matt “Roy” Royles (guitar and vocals). The band’s roster now includes Dan Whitener (banjo), Matthew Hiller (mandolin), and Elizabeth Carlson (fiddle).

Ana Egge with Joshua Howard

An evening with Ana Egge.
To listen to samples, visit www.anaegge.com

“We were always the outsiders,” says folk songwriter ANA EGGE of her early roots in a small North Dakota town of 50 people. “I was taught how to shoot a gun and how to enjoy alfalfa sprouts and tofu, raised by two back-to-the-land hippies. My folks loved the outdoors and eccentric people; I ran around barefoot and learned to ride a motorcycle when I was 5. I grew up with all the time and space in the world.”

Egge has since traded the openness of the American Plains for the untamable wilderness of New York City, recorded eight albums, and worked with musical legends such as Ron Sexsmith and Steve Earle. She’s been around the horn of life’s experiences, having gotten married and become a mother, but that childhood spirit of freedom has matured on her latest album, Say That Now.

Callaghan with Julia Mark

An evening with Callaghan.
To listen to samples, visit www.callaghansongs.com

"Breathtaking...absolutely incredible" is how BBC London's Gaby Roslin described a recent in studio performance by Callaghan. Originally from the UK Callaghan moved to the USA in summer 2010 to record and tour with Grammy-Nominee Shawn Mullins and has been playing live and building her audience ever since.

Playing piano and guitar she delivers a stunning vocal which earns frequent comparisons with artists like Sarah McLachlan and Emmy Lou Harris. Her songwriting chronicles the stories, experiences and emotions which are part of everyone’s lives. A long-time Shawn Mullins fan, she contacted the Atlanta singer-songwriter online and, after being knocked out by her music, he agreed to produce her debut album. Since then Callaghan's been on the road touring with artists including Shawn, Ed Kowalczyk, Matthew Perryman-Jones and headlining her own shows all across the USA.

Reviewing her live show No Depression says “her extraordinary voice truly sets the music apart…nothing short of stunning". Her second studio album, A History of Now, was recorded in Nashville and earned praise on both sides of the pond. The first EP The Other Side released in June 2017 and the second Skin on Skin will release on March 2nd 2018. The new tracks and new location have continued to evolve Callaghan’s sound; taking her music in a more pop direction, while retaining the honest emotions of the singer songwriter and all delivered with Callaghan's soaring, beautiful voice.

Robby Hecht and Caroline Spence

$15 Cover

An evening with Robby Hecht and Caroline Spence.
A special double feature.

Nashville-based singer/songwriter Robby Hecht crafts melodic and captivating songs that don’t shy away from the complexity of human relationships and delivers them with a smooth tenor that evokes both sorrow and hope. He is a romantic realist who writes with an honesty that captures the truth of a sentiment, building allegorical themes that allow anyone to relate the songs to the experiences of his or her own life. Robby has toured and written relentlessly over the last several years, winning the Great Waters Music Festival Songwriter Competition in 2006, the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Competition in 2008 and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour Contest in 2010—along the way garnering comparisons to early James Taylor, Paul Simon, and Amos Lee. Like these celebrated artists, Robby Hecht is a unique voice—one that is stirring, instantly recognizable and truly original. To listen to samples, visit www.robbyhecht.com

Caroline Spence is enamored with words and songs. Though countless singer-songwriters boast the same simple claim, few have been lifted up by their passion the way Caroline has. Her passion led the Virginia native on a pilgrimage to Nashville, where the 25-year-old honed her writing and her coy, dusky soprano across folk, Americana and alt-country genres. That same passion resonates throughout every track on her first full-length solo debut, the magical and meditative Somehow. The band lives and breathes with Spence’s guitar and vocals, masterfully navigating a breadth of genres with a perfect sense of intimacy and style, at times with the rock of Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers, the twang of Nashville’s Lower Broadway, or the sensitivity of swelling pedal steel and simple percussion. With songs that wrap the truths of life up into personal vignettes of clever wordplay and catchy hooks, it’s no wonder that Caroline has won three national songwriting contests and has had her songs recorded by up-and-coming independent singer songwriters Andrew Combs (“Heavy”) and Annalise Emerick (“A Good One” and “Somewhere In Between”).
