John Gorka

Friday, February 15, 2019 @ 7:30 pm

"There are few contemporary songwriters that come anywhere close to the talent of John Gorka. His songs have a way of working on you long after you thought you had it all figured out. I will listen to a song that I know all the words to and can sing a long with and then one day sitting at a traffic light I realize that there was a whole other layer of meaning that I had missed." - Ben Wakeman, "Take Me to the Bridge"

Sweet Water Warblers: Rachael Davis, May Erlewine, Lindsay Lou

Friday, April 12, 2019 @ 7:30 pm

Michigan songbirds, Rachael Davis, Lindsay Lou and May Erlewine have each carved out successful careers on the American Roots Music circuit and have grown to respect each other's work. When they finally gelled into a potent musical force, it was natural - three singing sirens and multi-instrumentalists whose repertoire swings from gospel and bluegrass to soul and even joyful interpretations of pop. Their three-part vocal harmonies are sublime, and they trade instruments including mountain fiddle and banjo, uke, guitar and double bass.
