This will be the 11th Fall Songwriters Concert, my annual singer-songwriters in-the-round series that began in 2006. Enjoy fine songcraft, and the stories behind the songs, in an up close and personal listening room setting.
Paris Ray is one of the headliners for the 11th Annual Fall Songwriters Concert at b.j. spoke gallery! Also with Hank Stone & Steve Robinson...hosted by Roger Silverberg. 299 Main St. It's on the north side midway between Wall Street and Clinton Ave. See you there!

I'll be mixing it up with a couple of sets of tunes from my latest album, The Old Dog, along with some of my own "oldies". There'll also be some covers of songs by Warren Zevon, Buddy Holly, Bob Dylan, The Bee Gees, and much more. Friendly place, great beer selection, and a nice menu too.
Roger Silverberg plays a solo set at 9:00. Lesley Stoller and his band will follow. Nice, chill vibe in this room.
Sounds Like: Crowded House, Tommy James and the Shondells, Mark Knopfler & Dire Straits, Warren Zevon Fan Page, Randy Newman (singer & songwriter)
