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.

Peter Case, Arvid Smith
Tickets: $15
After his tenure in the proto-power pop band the Nerves, and following the dissolution of his early-'80s Los Angeles rock & roll band the Plimsouls, Peter Case launched a career as an influential American singer/songwriter specializing in fingerpicked acoustic guitar and redemptive story songs about society's outcasts and drifters, delivered in a uniquely soulful folk-rock style. Case's secret weapon is his powerhouse voice; combined with his imaginative and visionary songwriting and his ability to blow real harmonica licks, he's well respected among his peers and a perennial favorite among serious listeners. By the turn of the century, longevity was working in his favor as he continued to set the bar for contemporary singer/songwriter music.

Underhill Rose
Tickets: $12
Harmonies. Soul-touching lyrics. Eye-catching stage presence. Underhill Rose has put its talents to work to become synonymous with beautiful music, charming personalities and, recently, increased momentum. With Eleanor playing her distinctive claw-hammer style on a Deering banjo along with harmonica, Molly Rose on guitar and Salley plucking the upright bass, the trio has carved out a place in the Americana scene with songs that run the gamut from heart wrenching to sassy and playful to thought-provoking. Eleanor’s salty blues-inspired voice and Molly’s soaring range lead the group in tandem with Salley’s country twang to create three-part harmony music that is real and inspired, and rooted in everything life has thrown at Asheville, North Carolina’s pre-eminent female trinity. Molly Rose and Eleanor Underhill’s musical partnership is the result of a chance meeting at a makeshift performance of “Angel from Montgomery” between classes at Warren Wilson College. Molly Rose’s beautiful voice resonated with Eleanor, and the two eventually started performing live together. Their affinity for the music they make has kept them together for more than 12 years. Underhill Rose formed in 2009, and the addition of Salley Williamson two years later created the foundation for an internationally-recognized female trio known for blending aspects of Americana, rhythm and blues, country and bluegrass into an authentic sound that is all their own—“Heartfelt Country Soul.”
 
PLAY Thu Oct 30 14, 07:30 PM
Paul Garfinkel, Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards, Kay Garfinkel
Tickets: $10
Paul Garfinkel is a contemporary acoustic folk singer/songwriter living in Jacksonville, Florida. Much of the inspiration for his writing rises from the people and places of his adopted home state. His lyrics often touch on environmental issues and the need to protect Florida's precious and increasingly scare natural resources. He is also more than willing to challenge what he views as political ineptitude and the realities of societal decay. Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards are a folk duo from Massachusetts whose songs resonate with the lover of Americana and old country music, commanding familiar traditional melodies and poignant, introspective lyrics, and backing them with delicate arrangements on ukulele, clarinet, guitar and banjo. They began in the basements, coffee shops and art spaces of New England, and have since tested the stages of more traditional folk music venues, colleges, living rooms and bar rooms from Boston to Austin, Denver to Nashville, Asheville to Portland, and back 'round again. Hundreds of concerts have been given and thousands of records have been sold, all on their own steam and without the support of major industry assistance.

Rod Picott, Tracy Grammer
Tickets: TBD
The son of a welder from rural New England, Rod Picott is a masterful songwriter and soulful singer who carries with him as fine a suitcase of songs as you'll find anywhere. Slaid Cleaves, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Fred Eagelsmith have recorded Rod Picott songs. A former construction worker who hung up his tools when he released his debut CD in 2000, Picott has carved a career for himself with a run of 6 beautifully crafted self released CDs over the last 13 years and a well earned reputation as a engaging, emotion fueled performer. TRACY GRAMMER rose to acclaim as half of the "postmodern, mythic American folk" duo, Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer. From 1998-2001, the duo released three internationally celebrated, folk chart-topping albums featuring Carter's mytho-poetic Americana songcraft and in 2002, toured with Joan Baez, both as featured artists and Baez's band members.
 
  Fri Nov 14 14, 07:30 PM
Gypsy Star featuring Rebecca Zapen
Tickets: TBA
Gypsy Star, a unique band from the Tampa Bay area of Florida, came together around the compositions of guitarist, Billy Keen. While playing many years in popular music bands touring the United States and beyond, Keen became interested in the music of other countries and cultures. With these new “global” influences, he began writing songs fusing them with his American music roots of folk, rock and jazz to create a new sound. Then began the search for musicians which led to the formation of Gypsy Star. Weaving a colorful musical tapestry with acoustic instruments such as classical flamenco guitar, violin, flute, woodwinds and an array of hand percussion and drums, their vocal and instrumental tunes take you from the shores of North America, South America and the Caribbean to Ireland, Spain, the Mediterranean, Africa and the Middle East. Appealing to both mainstream and world music audiences alike, Gypsy Star brings an international spectrum of influences to each show that range from the melodic pop sounds of The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac ...the eastern strains that can be heard in Led Zeppelin’s music ...the jazzy world music fusion of Sting ...the Celtic musings of Loreena McKennitt and the Renaissance stylings of Blackmore’s Night ...to the rumba flamenco rhythms of the Gipsy Kings and Jesse Cook ...and add some reggae sounds of Bob Marley for good measure. While having a wide variety of influences, their original music is distinctly Gypsy Star. Their live performance is a cultural feast for the eyes and ears as their uplifting musical poetry is set in motion by flamenco and folkloric dance! - See more at: http://www.gypsystarband.com/bio/#sthash.zbVLSemn.dpuf

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
