Kim Richey, Emily Mure opens

Two-time Grammy-nominated Kim is a storyteller; a weaver of emotions and a tugger of heartstrings. Tender, poetic and aching with life’s truths, Kim’s songs transport you to her world, where words paint pictures and melodies touch the soul.

And then there’s her voice. Pure, arresting and honest, her voice makes you take notice; Kim has the kind of voice where if emotions were ribbons, they’d be streaming in rainbow colors from your iPod.

Dustbowl Revival

The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, California-based collective that merges old school bluegrass, gospel, jug-band, swamp blues and the hot swing of the 1930’s to form a spicy roots cocktail.

Known for their inspired live sets, the Dustbowl Revival boldly brings together many styles of traditional American music. Imagine Old Crow Medicine Show meeting Louis Armstrong’s Hot Seven Band in New Orleans or Bob Dylan and Fats Waller jamming with Mumford & Sons on a front porch in 1938.

Caravan of Thieves, Clarence Bucaro opens

Like many families, this one started with a married couple- Fuzz and Carrie Sangiovanni, (guitar, vocals, various percussive “instruments”) writing and performing as a duo. “It started as a romantic, bohemian vision of a couple making music, performing on the road, in parks, venues, traveling around and avoiding responsibility as much as possible,” says Fuzz. “The first thing we discovered was we loved singing together, harmonizing our voices. Just seemed to click right away.”

Peter Lance

Sunday, July 28, 2013 - 10:30pm


REDBIRD is both the name of the album and the loose affiliation of three American songwriters that began to take shape during a common tour experience. In January of 2003, KRIS DELMHORST, JEFFREY FOUCAULT, and PETER MULVEY did a run of shows together in England. Most afternoons they found themselves with a few free hours at a hotel, and without fail they engaged in an off-the-cuff song circle. (Nighttime after gigs was reserved for poker.) Across the tour, they discovered musical affinity and a shared love of a fairly diverse spectrum of Americana.

Steve Wynn

"One of rock's true heroes of the underground." - Philadelphia Weekly

In 25 years, Wynn has released at least that many albums and has seen over 300 of his songs recorded. He has played over 2000 shows in more than 25 countries.

Maybe you know Wynn from his groundbreaking work with The Dream Syndicate, a band that - along with REM and the Replacements - practically invented the American indie rock scene of the 1980s.
