2014 —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.
