BUDDY MONDLOCK
 
               Buddy Mondlock
Buddy Mondlock writes songs. He does it so well that some great songwriters have recorded his songs on their own albums. Guy Clark, Nanci Griffith and Janis Ian, to name just a few. But theres nothing like hearing the guy who wrote em sing em. Hes not going to pin your ears back with those songs. Hes going to draw you into his world. Where a single snowflake follows the trajectory of a relationship, where you get your pocket picked by a Roman cat, where you might swim over the edge of the world if you're not careful and where dreams that don't come true still count. And it can all be happening in a little folk club or on a stage by a grassy hill or in someones living room or in the Royal Albert Hall.

Pierce Pettis
Tickets: $15
Pierce Pettis came out of that '80s folk movement that brought us the likes of Suzanne Vega, Tracy Chapman and Bill Morrissey. Like the three aforementioned songwriters, Pettis does not waste his time navel gazing or spouting platitudes. He writes honest little stories and slices of life. His characters fall in and out of love and experience doubt and confusion, but they do so in ways that seem personal and real. - See more at: http://www.atlantamusicguide.com/2009/02/04/cd-review-pierce-pettis-that-kind-of-love/#sthash.XB7fIvjc.dpuf

Hardin Burns
Tickets: $15
Guitarist Andrew Hardin and vocalist Jeannie Burns have teamed up to write, record, and perform as Hardin Burns. After meeting at Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in 2009, the two began writing what would eventually become their self- released debut recording "Lounge" in 2012. "Lounge" includes nine original songs and a cover of George Harrison's "Beware Of Darkness." The duo have also recorded a two-song CD of a new original "Ache" and Howlin' Wolf's classic "Smokestack Lightning." Acoustic Guitar Magazine included "Lounge" on its Essential Acoustic Albums list for 2012 and called it "...an addictive set of earthy, hook-filled melodies, stunning harmonies, and graceful virtuosity on acoustic and electric guitars." In April 2014 , the duo recorded their second collection, entitled “Down The Deep Well” which will be released in the fall. Co-produced by Gabe Rhodes in Spicewood, Texas, the recording features legendary drummer Dony Wynn and upright bassist David Carroll. Andrew Hardin lives outside of Austin, Texas, and is best known for his long association with songwriter Tom Russell. He has also performed and recorded with such artists as Jimmy LaFave, Eliza Gilkyson, Malcolm Holcombe, and Joel Guzman. He has released four solo albums of instrumental guitar music and a new retrospective entitled "Lost Pines" featuring noted guitarists Albert Lee and Amos Garrett. Jeannie Burns, the eighth of twelve siblings, lives in Ithaca, New York, and performed with the Burns Sisters for over twenty years. The Burns Sisters released eight albums and have toured extensively as back up singers for Arlo Guthrie. Jeannie released an excellent solo album "Coming Up Close" in 2000. In addition to touring in Texas, New York, Florida, and California, Hardin Burns has recently toured Italy and Alberta, Canada. They performed "Talk Of The Town" and "My City Was Gone" at the Barns At Wolf Trap (near Washington, DC) in a tribute to Chrissy Hynde, and performed on the train they call "City Of New Orleans" from Chicago to New Orleans. What sets Hardin Burns apart from the crowd is their ability to combine traditional musical styles such as blues and country with visionary, modern lyrical ideas. Their sound brings to mind such acts as Raising Sand or CivilWars. Influences include Johnny Cash, Howlin' Wolf, Lucinda Williams, Warren Zevon, Al Green, the Rolling Stones, and George Harrison. In live performance, expect to hear Jeannie's evocative, bluesy vocals framed by Andrew's inspired and inventive guitar playing.

Monroe Crossing
Named in honor of Bill Monroe, “The Father of Bluegrass Music,” Monroe Crossing dazzles audiences with an electrifying blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, and heartfelt originals. Their airtight harmonies, razor sharp arrangements, and on-stage rapport make them audience favorites across the United States and Canada. Based in Minnesota, the group plays an average of 125 shows a year at major venues and festivals, frequently for non-bluegrass audiences — and people often comment that they’d never really liked bluegrass music until they attended a Monroe Crossing concert!
