The Brother Brothers hook the audience from the first song with exquisite singing and playing. They return to our stage this Thursday. Click photo for sample.
Greetings – Isn’t it amazing how many ways there are for music to be wonderful? I used to be all about the lyrics. Then it had to be a brilliant arrangement. Then I just wanted to hear the stories between the songs. Now, I’ll admit, it’s the quality of playing that tends to grab me first. I’d love to hear what makes you fall in love with a song. That way I can keep an ear out for new musicians that will hit your sweet spot.

Whatever draws you in, I bet you’ll find a taste of it in this week’s diverse line-up, from the pure intimacy of The Brother Brothers and Emma Langford, to the slamming fun of Sirsy and The Suitcase Junket. These are such bright, hard-working artists. They spend a huge part of their lives on the road, away from home, catching the zeitgeist and turning it into songs we want to hear over and over. Let’s let them know how much we treasure their art!

See you at the show,

His instruments are old suitcases, gas cans, and other discarded objects and he plays the daylights out of a guitar he found in a dumpster. His blues-rock is grand in its imagery, sound, and staging, and solitary in its thrift and self-reliance. Parts normally played by five players, he performs alone in a spectacle of showmanship, brilliance, madness, and invention.
