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.

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
