Loren started playing guitar when he was only four years old, and by the time he was six, played the Chet Atkins hit “Yackety Axe” in front of thousands of country music fans at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. After a touring career with his family band, traveling from Nashville to Las Vegas, he settled down in Central New York, and has been in constant demand as a studio musician. His finely-honed songwriting skills have launched his melodies on NBC’s #1 rated show “ER”, “The Young and The Restless” and on a Christmas CD with BB King and Patti Labelle. He has performed with some of the best acoustic players in the world, including Stephen Bennett, Richard Smith, John Knowles, Muriel Anderson and Loren’s friend and mentor Tommy Emmanuel, the Australian guitar sensation.

Abbie Gardner
Saturday, March 9 at 7:30 pm

Abbie Gardner is a fiery dobro player with an infectious smile. Whether performing solo or with Americana harmony trio Red Molly, her acclaimed tales of love and loss, both gritty and sweet, are propelled by her impeccable lap style slide guitar playing. Solo performances feature the dobro as a solo instrument, bouncing between a solid rhythmic backbone and ripping lead lines, all in support of her voice and songs. Her latest recording DobroSinger hit #11 on the Billboard Blues Chart. It’s intimate, real and raw - her dobro and voice recorded at the same time at home, without a band or any studio tricks to hide behind. You can hear every breath, every chuckle, as if you are in the room with her.

Lucy Wainright Roche
Friday, March 15 at 7:30 pm

As the daughter of two celebrated singer/songwriters and the sibling of two others, Lucy Wainwright Roche didn't initially intend to go into the family business, but her literate and thoughtful songs and her plaintive yet forceful vocals showed she didn't have to rely on the reputations of her relatives to find an audience. Her music is gentle, well-crafted contemporary folk that speak of her efforts to find her place in the larger world, with love and other interpersonal relationships playing a major role in the formula. Her first two solo efforts, 2010's Lucy and 2013's There's a Last Time for Everything, capture the sweetly sad tone of her music, and 2020's I Can Still Hear You is a fine collaborative effort recorded with her mother, Suzzy Roche.

John Dady
Saturday, March 23 at 7:30 pm

John Dady has been singing his way into the hearts of his audiences since the 1970’s when he and his brother Joe produced their first album as “The Dady Brothers”. Many more albums followed, along with thousands of live performances. They shared their delightful music throughout the eastern United States and across Ireland. John and Joe’s brotherly harmonies and adept command of a variety of instruments captivated audiences both young and old. In 2020, The Dady Brothers were chosen to be inducted into the Rochester Music Hall of Fame. Since Joe’s untimely death in 2019, John has continued the tradition performing solo or with an array of accomplished musician friends. Accompanying himself on upside-down, left-handed guitar and ukulele, John’s vast repertoire of songs includes original compositions, Irish and American Folk songs, popular tunes from the Big Band Era to the Beatles and the Band, and the list goes on. He tailors each performance to foster a personal connection with his audience, a hallmark of every show.

Cosy Sheridan and Sloan Wainwright
Saturday, April 6 at 7:30 pm

A joyful evening as these two friends and collaborators share an evening of upbeat and energetic music. Cosy Sheridan has been called one of the era’s finest and most thoughtful singer/songwriters, and also “a buddhist monk trapped in the body of a singer-songwriter.” Her concerts are wide-ranging explorations: ragtime guitar and social satire, modern renditions of mythology, and tales of modern adulthood. Known for her rich contralto voice, Sloan Wainwright is a member of that Wainwright Family Tree that includes brother Loudon Wainwright III, nephew Rufus, and niece Lucy Wainwright Roche. She has charted an artistic path all her own, one based in close observation, joy, and spiritual connection, and is tapping into fresh material as she continues to provide transformative, healing, and energetic experiences for her audiences.

David Jacobs-Strain and Bob Beach
Friday, April 12 at 7:30 pm

David Jacobs-Strain and Bob Beach sit side-by-side on the stage.  A Pogreba guitar, built by the man who built the cannon Hunter S. Thompson was shot out of, sits loosely in David’s hands. Bob adjusts the distance to his 1940’s RCA microphone then leans over the box propped open at his side and grabs 2 harmonicas.  They are calm. Poised. The crowd has no idea what they are in for next.
David Jacob-Strain is a striking slide guitar player and song poet from Eugene, Oregon. His deep love of blues and roots music is evident in every one of the songs he writes. Bob Beach plays harmonica with calm fierceness. A mouth-harp maestro who swaggers into a solo like The Marlboro Man, then quietly leaves the set while the rest of us wonder what just happened and how such a tiny instrument could possibly sound like that. Together, David and Bob play unrestrained and from the heart. Wait. Just wait until you see them live

17th Anniversary Celebration
An Evening with The Black Feathers
Saturday, June 22 at 7:30 pm

The ability to write songs that are both modern and ancient is a rare thing. The Black Feathers, made up of Ray Hughes and Sian Chandler, are two such talents, a husband-wife duo who weave in traditional influences so thoroughly that they become the warp and weft of fresh creations. Americana, Folk, and Acoustic Indie Rock sensibilities coexist comfortably in their musical world, with Hughes’ guitar work buoying the kind of harmonies often only heard in family bands. Their music quickly draws the interest of listeners, but it is the stage chemistry that will keep them listening
