Cliff Eberhardt

Cliff Eberhardt's dad introduced him to the guitar and he quickly taught himself to play. Fortunate enough to live close to the Main Point (one of the best folk clubs on the East Coast), he cut his teeth listening to the likes of James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Bonnie Raitt, and Mississippi John Hurt — receiving an early and impressive tutorial in acoustic music.

Forrest O'Connor

Forrest O’Connor was born in one of the most musically innovative environments in recent memory: 1980s Nashville. His family was involved in the music industry, so he was fortunate to grow up around world-class performers like Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss, Bela Fleck, Victor Wooten, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, and Edgar Meyer.

Kim Richey Trio CD Release, Darden Smith 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 colours from your iPod. Her voice gives you goose bumps.

Tickets: $25, members $23

Tylan CD Release

I have vivid early childhood memories involving the sounds of Abbey Road mixed with the smell of marijuana smoke and the clacking of Scrabble tiles. I also remember watching the old Saturday Night Lives with my parents, and loving Jane Curtain and Gilda Radner but thinking the news part was really boring. When I was eight, I became obsessed with Michael Jackson, and I’m not sure if I ever got the jacket but I DEFINITELY had the glove and I totally wore it to school.

Fox and Branch family show

Over the many years that Fox & Branch have played together, their concerts for kids and their family members have become a major part of the work that we do. Fox and Branch have played family concerts at festivals, schools, churches, day care centers, coffeehouses, libraries, and theaters.

A Fox and Branch family show is all about audience participation. In fact, we try to make the entire idea of there being “an audience “disappear: we are just a big group of people having fun.
