Concert Schedule for 2019:
Jackson Emmer. Saturday, March 9, 7pm
“Americana songwriters are a dime a dozen these days, but few are writing songs like Jackson Emmer.” – Rolling Stone
Jackson Emmer’s lyrically playful and intimate Americana style is as gleeful as it is irreverent. Combining an authentic country spirit with an honest and modern perspective, Emmer connects with listeners in the time-honored storytelling tradition.
Cliff Ritchey. Saturday, May 11, 7pm
Cliff Ritchey gathers his songwriting inspiration from the simple country life he surrounds himself with in Markleville, Indiana. His desire is to connect with people on a deeper, more vulnerable level through his music.
In 2004 he released his first solo album This Is Front, followed by All Kidding Aside (2006), Seasons (2013) and most recently, The Second Half (2017) featuring the song "Honey Baby” which won 1st place in the Chris Austin Songwriting Competition and 3rd place in the International Songwriting Competition. Stylistically Cliff's songwriting ranges from acoustic heartfelt Americana/Folk tunes to songs with complex progressions and melodies that fit tightly inside a simple acoustic production.
Cliff has also served as a touring guitarist for Jon McLaughlin, Josh Kaufman (winner of The Voice Season 6) and Latin recording artist Jaci Velasquez in addition to raising a family and maintaining a busy schedule as a commercial photographer.
Caitelen Schneeberger. Saturday, June 22, 7pm
Caitelen is a Santa Fe based singer/songwriter, multi-instrument musician, recording artist, worship leader, vocal coach, and poet. Her music is vocally forward, lyrically emphatic, indie folk/rock with a gospel narrative twist. She strives for authenticity in her songwriting that reflects the ebb and flow of doubt and faith, and all the beauty, longing, and awe in between.
Clint Alphin. Saturday, September 21, 7pm
Hailing from North Carolina, Clint has drawn inspiration from his home state’s heroes. “There is so much great music that has come out of North Carolina,” Alphin says. “James Taylor is perhaps my biggest influence; his phrasing and harmonic melodies are what have inspired me to first write songs.”
Clint moved to Nashville, TN in 2003 and has released an EP and three full-length studio albums since then. His latest, "Postmodern Man," was released in 2015. It was produced by Neilson Hubbard.
Margot. Saturday, October 26, 7pm
Margot is a six-piece Americana rock band from Minneapolis. Lyrically their songs harken back to the socially conscious folk music of the 60s and 70s, while their sound is a rock-n-roll infused Americana that’s just as likely to burst into wild three-part harmony as it is to wind down to somber acoustic performances.
Note: Margot will perform as a trio on October 26.
