|September 9|| Andy Cohen|
Cohen grew up in a house with a piano and a lot of Dixieland Jazz
records, amplified after a while by a cornet that his dad got him. At
about fifteen, he got bitten by the Folk Music bug, and soon got to
hear records by Big Bill Broonzy and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, both of
which reminded him of the music he grew up to. At sixteen, he saw
Reverend Gary Davis, and his course was set. He knew he had it in him
to follow, study, perform and promote the music of the southeast
quadrant, America’s great musical fountainhead. Although he’s done
other things, a certain amount of writing and physical labor from
dishwashing and railroading to archeology, playing the old tunes is
what he does best.

|October 14||Small Potatoes|
“Jacquie Manning and Rich Prezioso combine cleverly witty with powerfully poignant songs, along with well chosen covers to present an unusually entertaining and involving repertoire engagingly delivered. Prezioso's song "1000 Candles, 1000 Cranes" is one of the most outstanding songs of the past 50 years.”
Rich Warren, The Midnight Special - WFMT Radio, Chicago, IL
|November 11||Heather Styka|
songwriter Heather Styka is not afraid to go where others fear to tread
— and to get a little messy on the way. Beneath “sweet, soulful
vocals” (Portland Press Herald) and “nimble fingerpicked guitar”
(Dispatch Magazine) lie narratives of vulnerability, strength, and
wanderlust, drawn from her extensive touring. Styka’s image-heavy
lyrics brim with sincerity and heartbreak, but she veers towards an
unexpected edge, more interested in questions than answers. Half
road-weary, half persistently optimistic, these are the sort of songs
that take you on a journey and haunt you all the way home.
