Charlie Phillips

$15 Adv / $18 At the Door

An evening with Charlie Phillips.
To listen to samples, visit www.charliephillips.com

Continuing his series of tributes and theme shows, Charlie Phillips performs the radio hits of the 1970"s.

Raised amidst the musical melting pot that was 1970’s Philadelphia, listeners agree that Charlie Phillips’ songs cannot be categorized into genre. His musical influences – rooted primarily in rock, soul, folk, and blues – have been blended and distilled to create his eclectic style and fresh sound. From the blues-rock and reggae flavored “Preacherman” and “Give It Up”, to the Asbury Park blare of “Natural”, to the campfire folksiness of “Donny T” and “Wealth of Friends”, his heartfelt and melody-driven songs leave the listener singing after the song is over.

Charlie’s charisma and spontaneity are evident in his live shows, alluring audiences by dipping deep into his reservoir of original music and cover tunes. Also a yoga teacher at his own yoga studio in suburban Philadelphia, Charlie adds the compelling ingredient of his positive and hopeful “spiritual realism” into his recordings (evident in songs such as “Little Things” and “What It Is”) as well as his live performances.

Johnny Boy Whaler Hootenanny

free event

3rd Annual Johnny Boy Whaler Hootenanny!
Benefiting Musicopia - giving instruments and lessons to children.

Join us for a night that promises self-expression ~people breaking through whatever stops them from being free to do what they love. Musicopia is the beneficiary of all proceeds, an organization that trains young people in the joy of making music by giving them instruments and lessons. There will be singing, guitars, basses, violins, drums, poetry, Shakespeare, rapping, and a raffle of great prizes. A fun night for all.

The Johnny Boy Whaler Hootenanny came about because I had just taken up the guitar and found that performing in public was such a thrill that I wanted to provide the opportunity for others. Then I thought why not benefit a charity and I discovered Musicopia, a non-profit, that provides musical instruments and lessons for under-privileged children. A perfect match for my event. What I want to accomplish is a great night of entertainment and raffle prizes that raise money for Musicopia.

The Young Novelists with Emily Mure

$15 Cover

An evening with The Young Novelists.
To listen to samples, visit www.theyoungnovelists.com

Through their rich but rustic sound, Toronto roots-rock outfit The Young Novelists deliver a dose of honesty in audible form. Made us Strangers, their upcoming sophomore effort, showcases a significant sonic progression for the band.

Ripe with raw but elegant instrumentation and stacked multi-layered harmonies, their pure take on folk-tinged rock translates equally well from the stereo or stage. What first began as a stack of songs that frontman Graydon James had amassed behind the drum kit in various bands during his university years eventually became a collection of recordings performed by the six-piece band, Graydon James & The Young Novelists. But over time, as James’ wife Laura Spink became integral to the creative process and the band began performing and touring as a duo, the more succinct banner of The Young Novelists was born.

Since dropping their debut EP, a small town eulogy, in 2011, they’ve made impressive strides up the industry incline. Their catalog also includes a live collection and their 2012 debut LP, in the year you were born, which cemented their status as an act to watch. Now, with made us strangers, The Young Novelists are set to make their most impactful musical statement to date. “We were looking to inject a bit of excitement and edginess into it this time around,” James says, “but also wanted the recordings to be more organic and true.” For that, The Young Novelists enlisted the aid of producer Carlin Nicholson (Jason Collett, The Golden Dogs), also a member of Toronto rock outfit Zeus. Together, with a minimalist approach to recording – no pitch correction, no click tracks, and some cuts captured entirely live off the floor – they added some grit to The Young Novelists’ sonic grace.

Cuts like “brothers in the garage” showcase the fruit of that union – rooted in folk with the band’s captivating and catchy vocal phrasing but boosted by slightly overdriven guitar and a triumphantly authentic chorus. Similarly, “come back to me” is an upbeat earworm that showcases their breadth of influence. Conversely, more sombre offerings like “always make the mistake” – this one anchored by Spink’s vocals – are delicate but alluring. “This record hinges on interpersonal relationships,” James explains of made us strangers’ underlying lyrical theme, which includes both traditional and non-traditional ones – from brothers in a band to a torrid love triangle to a new father missing the sound of his son’s voice when they’re apart.

John Galla with Rivers

$10 Adv / $12 At the Door

An evening with John Galla.
To listen to samples, visit www.reverbnation.com/johngalla

Rooted in the rich history of music -- but with an emphasis on attaining an original perspective -- singer/songwriter, John Galla deftly blends a multitude of musical influences into a captivating aural mosaic, framed by dynamic rhythm, lyrical wordplay, and poignant expression.

John's 2011 debut, "Sketch", has become a favorite among local radio stations, with four tracks, ("Coming Through?", "Fear", "Sweet Relief" and "Binary Stars") receiving significant airplay. Building on this success, John began laying down tracks at the end of that year for what would become his newest album, "Drifting to Bella" (2014). However, while continuing to play as a solo-artist and with the newly-formed, 'John Galla Band', (in addition to three other side-projects), it wasn't until a hiatus from performing in May 2013 that John was able to return to the studio in earnest to finish the project.

During this two-year interval, John underwent a personal, (and by extension, creative) evolution that transformed the project from "Sketch"-sequel to alternate musical phase. This metamorphosis has been eloquently captured in the narrative of the new album from its first to final track ("Drifting" to "Bella").

Nathan Bell and Craig Bickhardt

$20 Cover$20 Cover

An evening with Nathan Bell and Craig Bickhardt.
A special double feature.

Folk/Roots artist Nathan Bell is known for his straightforward yet poetic lyrics, supported by master guitar playing. Acoustic Guitar Magazine compared his style to the “gruff troubadour lilt of Kris Kristofferson.” Sing Out! Magazine called his music “Powerful stuff…bleak, yet oddly comforting.” Bell’s records have been played on nationally syndicated stations such as NPR’s ‘Midnight Special’ and have topped folk/roots charts in the US and in Europe. To listen to samples, visit www.nathanbellmusic.com

Craig is a singer/songwriter of the old school – you can hear echoes of such ‘60s folk revival artists as Tom Rush, Gordon Lightfoot and Eric Andersen in his work. Added to this is the melodic sophistication of a Jimmy Webb or a Paul Simon, as well as a spare but telling lyric approach. “I admire songwriters like Woody Guthrie and poets like Robert Frost because they created functional art,” he says. “Too much music today is just for the singer, not for Everyman.

$30 Cover

An evening with Mary Fahl, former lead singer of October Project. To listen to samples, visit www.maryfahl.com

"Sounding like no other singer of her generation" (Allmusic.com), Mary Fahl is an expressive, emotional singer/songwriter who first achieved fame as lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s NYC-based chamber-pop group OCTOBER PROJECT. The hallmark of their sound was Mary Fahl's awe-inspiring power vocals over gorgeous melodies played with passion and sophistication.

As a solo artist, Mary has released several compelling albums, including the fantastic re-working of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" for V2 Records; her wonderful, original studio album "The Other Side of Time" on Sony Odyssey; and her acclaimed album "Love and Gravity". She has also written and performed songs for several major motion pictures, including the lead song ("Going Home") for the Civil War epic Gods and Generals.

Now Mary returns with her album "Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House", a collection of twenty-three tracks recorded live at one of America's oldest vaudeville theaters and winner of the Indie Acoustic Award for multi-genre "Album of the Year". The show was filmed for PBS and is currently airing around the country. Fahl's elegant, cinematic songs draw on classical and world music sources, American art song, as well as thinking man's folk-pop which she performs with an earthy, viscerally powerful contralto that Boston Globe critic Steve Morse calls "a voice for the gods that can transport listeners to other realms".

An evening with Slaid Cleaves.
To listen to samples, visit www.slaidcleaves.com

Slaid Cleaves spins stories with a novelist’s eye and a poet’s heart. Twenty years into his career, the celebrated songwriter’s Still Fighting the War spotlights an artist in peak form. Cleaves’ seamless new collection delivers vivid snapshots as wildly cinematic as they are carefully chiseled. Dress William Faulkner with faded jeans and a worn six-string for a good idea. “Slaid’s a craftsman,” says Terri Hendrix, who sings harmony on “Texas Love Song.” “He goes about his songs like a woodworker.”

Cleaves delivers equal measures of hope and resignation throughout this 2013 release as life lessons slide subtly through side doors. “Normally when I start writing a new batch, a theme starts to emerge after three or four songs,” says Cleaves, who built an unlikely success story from scratch after moving to Austin, Texas, from Maine two decades ago. “This time around I thought, I’m just gonna write where the muse takes me and each song will be its own thing. So I ended up with a CD that has a bit more variety on it compared to my previous releases.

Half the songs are about struggle and perseverance and half are all over the place, some tongue-in-cheek stuff, a gospel song, a Texas pride song.” “Slaid is my favorite co-writer,” says Picott, who also co-wrote the new album’s standout “Welding Burns.” “He’s a smart writer with a gift for wringing the most out of a melody. Slaid understands that the song has to rule. He's patient and unwavering in his pursuit of the best.” Cleaves humbly accepts the praise. “Despite the odds, through persistence and good fortune I've carved out a niche for myself,” he says. “You could say I have a ‘Whim of Iron.’"

An evening with Dala.
To listen to samples, visit www.dalagirls.com

Juno nominees and winners of the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year, Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine of Dala write and sing in harmony best described as angelic. These two best friends met in their high school music class in 2002; they have since released five albums and toured extensively across North America. Darlings of the Canadian music scene, Dala are now poised to bring their fresh brand of acoustic pop music to the world.

Drawing upon influences like The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Bob Dylan, Dala write songs that are both catchy and insightful. Amanda’s ethereal soprano voice blends seamlessly with Sheila’s velvety alto, creating the lush harmonies that have become their trademark.

In the summer of 2010, Dala’s PBS special “Girls From The North Country” was broadcast across North America. This concert features Dala’s own songs weaved around classics by Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Gordon Lightfoot. The live cd and dvd for “Girls From The North Country” earned Dala the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Award for “Vocal Group of the Year”. The live album was nominated for a 2011 Juno Award in the category “Roots and Traditional Album of the Year: Group”.

Dala’s latest album “Best Day” was released in June of 2012. It was nominated for three Canadian Folk Music Awards: English Songwriter of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year and Producer of the Year.

An evening with Gretchen Schultz and Cricket Blue.
A special double feature.

Gretchen Schultz is getting her feet wet releasing her new, and highly anticipated album "Not Afraid To Fall" in early Fall 2014. While her comfort zone is singing harmonies, Gretchen also enjoys the freeing feeling of expression in a different platform as a songwriter. Being asked to join a night with these wonderfully talented songwriters is an honor. I love to be a part of this group setting where everyone gets to showcase their "fun" a little". Gretchen's voice is her first instrument. "Like sweet and salty, her unique jazzy sound of yesterday mixes well with her edgy lyrics of today". To listen to samples, visit www.reverbnation.com/gretchenschultz

The music of Vermont-based folk duo Cricket Blue is inspired by diverse aspects of the American folk tradition: old and current, popular and obscure. Laura Heaberlin and Taylor Smith write songs marked by close-knit harmonies and words about myth, confusion, love, and the ends of the things. Heaberlin’s and Smith’s sometimes mingled, sometimes markedly contrasting imaginations form the bones of Cricket Blue's sound. Heaberlin’s perceptive lyrical voice elevates everyday mundanities and makes the sublime pocket-sized. Smith threads images and characters into narratives that flicker between enigmatic and nakedly honest. They count songwriters like Jeff Mangum, Joanna Newsom, Laura Marling, Anaïs Mitchell, and Bob Dylan among their influences, as well as poets and storytellers like Dylan Thomas, Alice Munro, Angela Carter, and David Foster Wallace. Heaberlin and Smith met at Middlebury College, where they studied philosophy and literature. Prior to becoming a duo in the summer of 2013, they each performed as solo artists, sharing stages with acts such as Anaïs Mitchell, Brad Corrigan, and Carbon Leaf.

An evening with Megan Burtt and Callaghan.
A special double feature.

Megan’s technical skill and well-written lyrics earned her admission to the highly prestigious Berklee College of Music. Putting her degree and school-wide songwriting recognition to use, Megan received an honorable mention at the 2006 New York Songwriters Circle Competition, and at the 2009 Rocky Mountain Folk Festival Songwriting Competition. She was a top five finalist in the 2008 Telluride Bluegrass Competition and was invited to perform on the main stage for more than 10,000 people. To listen to samples, visit www.meganburtt.com

When Callaghan moved from London to Atlanta during the summer of 2010, she was still a relatively unknown name in the States. A singer/songwriter whose music blurred the edges between pop, adult contemporary and Americana, she had been drawn to Atlanta by one of her biggest influences - Shawn Mullins - after he had agreed to produce her first album. It was a classic story of taking risks, of willingly throwing your life into upheaval in order to chase your dreams. Just a few years later, Callaghan’s writing a second chapter of that success story. On her second album, A History of Now, she draws upon four years of touring, recording and growing appreciation in the U.S. She's transformed herself from a burgeoning indie songwriter — playing to 20 people at her first US show — to a full-fledged headliner who's toured across 46 states, played the Cayamo Cruise, performed at packed venues around the country and logged more than 50,000 highway miles per year.

An evening with Mary Bragg and Rj Cowdery.
A special double feature.

With themes of longing, trying relationships, and wistfulness, the ethereal, alt-country Edge of This Town was released April 7. Bragg takes her listeners to nostalgic, emotional places through her pointed lyrics and powerful melodies. On the opening track, Bragg describes a woman unwilling to give up on her crumbling marriage. “Hollywood’ll say go on and walk away, that it ain’t worth all these tears, but Hollywood ain’t here,” Bragg sings, a lilting slide guitar bending its way across the evocative timbre of Bragg’s voice. She produced the EP together with guitarist Rich Hinman and her bassist/husband Jimmy Sullivan. Bragg recorded the album after winning the inaugural BandPage/Zoo Labs Music Residency Contest, which enabled her to create the album at Zoo Labs Studios in Oakland, California in November 2014. To listen to samples, visit www.marybragg.com

Rj Cowdery is a Columbus, Ohio based artist who has solidified her place as a standout of the next generation of performing songwriters. Though she wrote her first songs as a teenager, Cowdery took a circuitous path to becoming a full-time artist. She experienced exciting creative breakthroughs followed by distractions and obligations that took her away from her lifelong dream of being a professional singer/songwriter. But it has all paid off in recent years. Cowdery's past few years on the folk festival trail have been nothing short of extraordinary. She has received major accolades at some of the most prestigious festivals in the U.S., including wins at the 2007 Mountain Stage NewSong, 2008 Kerrville New Folk, and 2008 Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist competitions and The Dave Carter Memorial Songwriting Contest at the Sisters Folk Festival in Oregon.

In a career that now spans two decades, New York duo Pete and Maura Kennedy have traversed a broad musical landscape, surveying power pop, acoustic songwriting, organic rock rooted in their early days in Austin, and a Byrds-inspired jangle that drew the attention of Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, and most notably Nanci Griffith.

The duo co-produced Nanci's latest CD. On their own recent release, "Closer Than You Know," the songs have a quality, inherent in Maura’s voice, that is both soothing and urgent. As writers and producers, the Kennedys continue to mature, from their early style-conscious pop to today’s burnished sheen. Always tuned to their own muse, Pete and Maura have once again come up with a unique sound that is as uplifting as it is unclassifiable.

Philly-based songwriter Matt Duke brings his eclectic musical style and prolific repertoire to Burlap and Bean for one of only a few shows that he will be playing over the next year.

Over the past decade, he has recorded albums that touch on topics from teen suicide and conversations of abortion on Winter Child (2006), to addiction and the impish supernatural on Kingdom Underground (2008), to Sex, God, and Rock and Roll (among other things) on One Day Die (2011), Duke personalizes every moment and channels that intensity not only through the songs themselves, but on stage as well - endearing his audiences with tremendous performances and an almost heart-breaking vulnerability.

He also plays well with others - be sure to check out When I Stop Running(2011) with friends Jay Nash and Tony Lucca; a collection of songs with beautiful acoustic arrangements and lush vocal harmonies throughout.

Get ready for a night of improvisation, deep soul-searching, self-deprecation, and heavy drinking before Duke heads back into the studio to record his next album (due out in 2016).

From the child growing up without a parent lost in the war in "Over There" to the down-on-his luck ski bum in "The Local," his characters - though trapped in the particular circumstances of their own lives - appeal to a universal audience.

Michael has been garnering critical acclaim and industry recognition including a prestigious slot on the 2013 Emerging Artists Showcase at The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival - where he received honorable mentions in audience voting (one of the only solo performers to do so) - and a coveted Quad Showcase at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance that same year. From sold out listening rooms to folk festivals up and down the East Coast, Michael has been delighting old fans and winning over new audiences at every stop.

Whether addressing topical issues or sharing personal stories that often leave his audiences feeling that he has somehow, in some way, invaded their privacy, Michael's performances combine a powerful guitar style with a seemingly endless supply of urgency. And he has a pretty sneaky sense of humor too.

Alfred James with Bastard Sons of Captain Mey

$10 Adv / $12 At the Door$10 Adv / $12 At the Door

An evening with the Alfred James Band.
To listen to samples, visit www.alfredjamesband.com

Alfred is the only cellist in the world playing a 5-string carbon fiber cello -- standing up! He started playing the cello as a young boy after his father (a surgeon and amateur cellist) suffered a stroke that ended both his surgical and musical careers. Alfred picked up his dad's cello where he left off and the rest as they say is history.

His influences range from Pablo Casals, Ralph Kirshbaum, Yo Yo Ma, Sting, Dave Matthews, etc. etc. etc. Welcome to the high energy sounds of the Alfred James Band and remember, the cello isn't just for classical music anymore.

We have been featured on NPR's All Songs Considered, opened at the Kimmel Center for Bruce Hornsby, and have performed on NBC's morning show 4 times. Alfred recently played cello for the AMC trailer for Tom Cruise's The Last Samurai.

-- Opening will be special guest The Bastard Sons of Captain Mey
