Schedule - 2014/2015 Season

Most shows begins at 8:00 pm. Doors open 45 minutes before performance time.

  Saturday, April 11, 2015 — Jack Williams and Tim Grimm. Tickets: $18 adults/$16 student/senior Jack Williams, "...his artistry...is nothing short of amazing. Dazzling picking, expressive voice, unique and interesting songs. He is a showman in the best sense of the word and just wowed our audience. I think they would have followed him anywhere." Rich Warren, WFMT "Midnight Special", Chicago, IL "...Perhaps even more exciting than seeing Bob Dylan, though, was the reaction that Jack Williams got...He practically blew the top off the tent! Man, oh man, can that guy play guitar! He completely overshadowed more well-known performers...They were wonderful, but Jack Williams was playing in an entirely different league. I was astounded by how good he is." Mark Cashman, upon hearing Jack for the first time at the Newport Folk Festival.

Tim Grimm has toured and recorded with his friend, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, appeared with Harrison Ford in the film Clear and Present Danger, and has shared the stage with writer and poet Wendell Berry. His recording, The Back Fields was named Best American Album in the 2006 Just Plain Folks Music Awards in Los Angeles (the largest most diverse music awards in the world). Named 2000's "BEST DISCOVERY in Roots/American Music" by the Chicago Sun Times. Each of his past 5 recordings have reached the top of the Folk or American-roots charts. Grimm walks the fine line between folk and country, while maintaining a strong footing in tradition.


  Saturday, May 16, 2015 — Brother Sun. Tickets: $19 adults/$17 student/senior Greg Greenway, Joe Jencks, and Pat Wictor are Brother Sun. The trio's harmonies, as much as their lyrics, tell what they are about: warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, rousing as a call to arms. Fusing folk, Americana, blues, pop, jazz, rock, and a cappella singing, Brother Sun is an explosion of musical diversity and harmony, in the finest of male singing traditions. Their combined musical skills make for an unforgettable experience - three rich voices blending on a well-crafted foundation of guitar, slide guitar, piano, ukulele, and bouzouki.

Brother Sun's self-titled debut CD announced to the world that these respected singer-songwriters had banded together to produce some of the most powerful male harmonies on the acoustic music scene. After two years of nationwide touring and performances marked by outstanding songwriting, ethereal harmonies, off-the-cuff humor, and standing ovations, they have released Some Part of the Truth, a CD that goes a large step further in revealing Brother Sun not only as singers, but as complete musicians. Their CD Some Part of the Truth was #1 for 2013 on FOLK-DJ, and contained the #1 song, "Lady of the Harbor."
