Shows

  • 2014

    Oct 30

    Jacksonville, FL, US | 7:30pm

    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.

“PAUL AND KAY GARFINKEL My goodness what a great morning at Shake Rag!!! Paul and Kay were our featured musical guests and what a treat we had!!! Paul has one of the nicest voices we’ve heard recently. He could have been a crooner right along with Sinatra and Tony Bennett. Kay has a gentle and lovely voice accompanying Paul with her harmonizing, classical flute and drum. A special treat were two songs that we all just loved, “Savannah In Black and White”. A song about the caste system among the blacks and Caucasian races. It was a moving tribute to those who have come before us. Also, he sang his latest song, “Higher Mountain” writing about a wonderful guy and his experiences…………HIMSELF!!! We were so lucky to have over 50 people at Coffee Talk this morning. We were also gifted with many great musicians and singers attending too, Larry Mangum and the Payton Brothers, and Liz and Lon Williamson. What a treat for all of us fans!!! ”
