Billy Novick & Guy Van Duser (Jazz, Swing)

"Elegant. Riveting. Soulful. Classic mastery." These are a few of the terms that have been used to describe the unique and stunning swing-jazz music of acoustic guitarist Guy Van Duser and clarinetist Billy Novick. Together as a duo for more than a quarter of a century, Guy and Billy have performed in concerts, clubs and festivals all over North America and Europe. You also may have heard them as frequent guests of the Prairie Home Companion show, NPR's All Things Considered, or on one of numerous film and television soundtracks.

John Henry's Hammer Coffeehouse - Tony Soul Delta Blues Project

The Delta Blues Project was formed several months ago and includes Tony Parente on lead vocals, Matt Sambito on bass and vocals, Mike Kalenderian on guitar and vocals, Mississippi Bob Cramer on slide guitar and Phil DeLaine on drums.

"The Tony Soul Project takes many of the standards of the Delta and surrounding areas and their influence and puts a monstrous bass line and backbeat to make the likes of Elmore, Muddy, T-Model, RL, Wolf, Hooker, come to life. Our style is the modernization of old blues standards," said Parente.

LEO KOTTKE (Acoustic)

Kottke is a walking contradiction. He’s slow talking and thoughtful almost to distraction. Yet when he picks up a steel-stringed guitar, his fingers race with uncommon speed, developing a deep, churning groove—often sounding like several guitars at once.

Grammy-nominated Kottke has recorded more than 30 albums that showcase his quirky songwriting and barnstorming fretwork on his 6 and 12-stringed guitars.

"Unforgettable! No matter how well you tell the story, the play makes it more vivid, more shattering, more humorous." —-NY Magazine

Starring the father/son duo Jay Ball and Alan Ball, Tuesdays with Morrie is the autobiographical story of Mitch, an accomplished and career-driven journalist, and Morrie, his former college professor.
