Schedule - 2014/2015 Season

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

Sunday, October 5, 2014 — special 4PM show Vance Gilbert with special guest Heather Styka . Tickets: $18 adults/$16 student/senior Vance Gilbert burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early 90's when the buzz spread through the folk clubs of the Northeast about an ex-multicultural arts teacher who was knocking them dead at open mics. Word got out about this Philadelphia-area born and raised performer, and Shawn Colvin invited Gilbert to be a special guest on her 1992 Fat City tour. Gilbert took audiences across North America by storm. "With the voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god, it was enough to earn him that rarity: an encore for an opener" wrote the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in its review of a show from that tour.

Chicago-bred, Maine-based songwriter Heather Styka's tunes have a vintage familiarity with lyrics as smart and unexpected as they are hummable. In addition to numerous songwriting awards, Styka's 2011 release Lifeboats for Atlantis received critical praise, hitting #3 on the national FOLK-DJ charts. Her new album, While This Planet Spins Beneath Our Feet, will be released just before this show.

Special Sunday show at 4pm, Doors open at 3:15pm.

  Saturday, November 1, 2014 — Claudia Russell & Bruce Kaplan with Katie Dahl. Tickets: $18 adults/$16 student/senior Claudia Russell is an outstanding singer and songwriter who has shared stages with Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer, Loudon Wainwright III, Kris Kristoffersen, Willie Nelson, Darryl Purpose, Peter Rowan, and Bill Staines, among many others. She is accompanied by Bruce Kaplan on mandolin, guitar and vocals. Boston's WUMB FM named Claudia the Best New Artist of 2000, the East Bay Express named her Best Musician in 2006, and she has twice been selected as a finalist in the Kerrville New Folk songwriting competition. Claudia was a 2004 finalist in the Sisters Folk Festival Songwriters contest in Bend Oregon and the 2002 KRCL Songwriting contest in Salt Lake City.

Katie Dahl keeps getting better and better. Leaky Boats and Paper Birds is a beautifully crafted album, with poetic lyrics made even more evocative by gorgeous melodies and lovely guitar picking. Katie’s low, rich voice is the real deal— you can feel her love for the land, lakes and people of the Upper Midwest in every song." -Stephanie Elkins, Wisconsin Public Radio Host.


Saturday, December 6, 2014 — at 6PM Jennifer Cutting and OCEAN Orchestra . Tickets: $18 adults/$16 student/senior Jennifer Cutting's OCEAN Orchestra has a garland of songs for Solstice and Yule. At the heart of this album are Cutting's 6 new original songs on different aspects of the holiday season: the transition from fall to winter, the solar turning point of Winter Solstice, the gifts of diverse spiritual tradition, nature's cycle of death and rebirth, longing for the return of light and warmth and a lighthearted take on the commercialization of the season. Added to these are peaceful, meditative carols, Celtic classics, etc. Critics most often compare Cutting's work to that of Loreena McKenitt. Musicians include Jennifer Cutting, Lisa Moscatiello, Stephen Winick & Andrew Dodds. We may hear accordian, celtic harp, guitar, fiddle, piano & penny whistle.

Show begins AT 6pm, doors open 5:15pm.

Big news...the first hour of this show will be broadcast live on WFMT's Folkstage. The show will start a touch BEFORE 6pm. This is an early Folkstage night! Folkstage members do NOT need to buy tickets but will be admitted as a normal Folkstage concert.
