Lamplighter Sessions: Peter Mulvey with Tim Gearan, Paul Cebar & friends

Co-Conspirators: In-the-round with Jennifer Kimball, Tim Gearan, Paul Cebar and Peter Mulvey.  Jennifer Kimball continues to deepen her haunting, strange, yet familiar sound.  The omnipresent Tim Gearan is one of the leading lights of the local scene, a prolific writer, performer and a barbaric yawp of a bluesman.  And, not to be missed, the mighty Paul Cebar, a Milwaukeean who has toured the world, a bandleader, sage and musicologist, a purveyor of rhythm and blues of the highest order, has been enlisted to make an ultra-rare solo appearance.  Both Paul and Tim have been frequent co-writer

Andy Statman

According to the New York Daily News, "There are those who know Andy Statman as the virtuoso klezmer clarinetist - violinist Itzhak Perlman, for instance, who chose Statman to lead his klezmer album. There are those who know Andy Statman as the down-home mandolin player with a stack of straight-up bluegrass albums to his credit. In Statman's versatile hands is a music that's full of surprises, sophisticated and completely accessible at once."

Vance Gilbert

Vance Gilbert burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early 90's. Once word got to New York about this Philadelphia-area born and raised performer, Shawn Colvin invited Gilbert to be a special guest on her Fat City tour. Gilbert proceeded to take audiences across the country by storm. Following the feted cover album Angels, Castles, Covers (2006) and songwriting watermarks Unfamiliar Moon (2005),  and  Up On Rockfield (2008), who else would  name their most recent album “Old White Men”, and actually have recorded a groundbreaking, heartbreaking title song to back it up?

Laura Marling (SOLD OUT)

In her native England, singer-songwriter Laura Marling, who just turned 22 in February, has often been described as an old soul, wise beyond her years. Her work is indeed preternaturally mature in its worldview and self-assured in its execution, but -- as her third album and Ribbon Music debut attests -- it's equally informed by a youthful sort of fearlessness. On A Creature I Don't Know, Marling is forthright about her emotions, frank about her desires, and she's not above having a bit of fun before the going gets too rocky.

An Acoustic Evening with Al Stewart, Rachael Sage opens

Scottish singer-songwriter folk rock legend Al Stewart first came to stardom as part of the British folk revival of the 1960s and 1970s. Best known for his 1976 hit single “Year of the Cat,” Stewart has released sixteen studio and three live albums since his debut album in 1967. In his latest release, Uncorked, Al partnered with Dave Nachmanoff to take a trip through Stewart’s musical back pages, consciously choosing not to replicate any of the tracks from his 1992 release.
