Christopher Williams, Sean Forrest with Rachel Taylor opens

Mark Erelli, Peyton Tochterman opens

Discovered at an impromptu 3 am hotel room jam at a music conference when just 23 years old, Mark Erelli finished up a graduate degree in evolutionary biology shortly after his self-titled debut was released in 1999. He has won several prestigious awards, from the Kerrville New Folk contest in 1999 to the 2006 International Song Contest, where a song he co-wrote with Catie Curtis bested 15,000 entries to win the grand prize.

Caravan of Thieves, Heather Maloney opens

Driving gypsy jazz rhythms, acoustic guitars, upright bass and violin lay the foundation for mesmerizing vocal harmonies and fantastic stories. It's theatrical and humorous. It's musical and intense. It entertains, dazzles and defies classification while welcoming the spectator to join the band throughout the performance in momentary fits of claps, snaps and sing-alongs. If Django Reinhardt, the cast of Stomp and the Beatles all had a party at Tim Burton's house, Caravan of Thieves would be the band they hired.

Sweet Wednesday CD Release Show

A sailor lost at sea, a young girl stranded along the desert stretch of Route 66, and a revolutionary war army deserter are just some of the characters you’ll meet when you listen to “Escaping from the Pale Moonlight”, the new album by Sweet Wednesday.

Singer/songwriters Dave Falk and Lisa Housman write and perform in the roots rock, folk, alt country genres, combining elements of comedy, tragedy, and haunting beauty into their writing.
