 ERIC TAYLOR
JULY, 19, 2014
$20 suggested donation

Eric Taylor is a force of nature, a brilliant writer, sage observer of humanity, mesmerizing performer and one of my favorite people. This will mark Eric's seventh FolkHouse appearance and we are honored to have him back.

Part music concert, part spoken word, an Eric Taylor concert might best be described as an unblinking theatrical human experience. Performance art at its best. I can't recommend this show enough...   back to top

 


THE ROUGH AND TUMBLE
SEPTEMBER 21, 2014
$20 suggested donation

The Rough & Tumble are two scarecrows in a cornfield, two pairs of hands stealing the same piece of candy, a dust devil that traveled seven states to get to you only to make you cry. They are the only surviving memory of the first bike accident in the history of bikes and the skinned knees and the broken hearts. They love eating fish but always feel bad about it when they put them in the pan, especially when the eyes are still intact. They wake up every morning and work on that crossword puzzle written in a forgotten language that only gets harder the more you forget. The Rough & Tumble are here to lock eyes with you in a crowded room, smile and wink at you.
The Rough & Tumble is Mallory Graham and Scott Tyler.  back to top

 


PIERCE PETTIS 
OCTOBER 4, 2014
$20 suggested donation 

We are thrilled to bring Pierce back to FolkHouse. His performance last year was fantastic! So if you missed that show, here's your chance to experience one of the finest songwriters around. 

"Pierce Pettis doesnít write mere songs, he writes literature...End to end the songwriting is brilliant...Pierce Pettis albums are events in my listening. His writing just gets better all the time and his singing is marvelous, wry and warm..." -Sing Out!

"...One of the more vital and critically acclaimed folk stars of recent years." ​-Performing Songwriter Magazine

"...all Pettis has to offer is his earnest best, a tender heart, packaged in one three-and-a-half minute song after another." -Jason Killingsworth, Paste Magazine

THE HONEY DEWDROPS
OCTOBER 18, 2014
$20 suggested donation

Last year's Honey Dewdrop's FolkHouse appearance was a huge success and we're happy to bring them back!

Using a handful of acoustic instruments and two voices, Laura and Kagey strive for clarity over effects and ornamentation. Itís what you have left when you strip everything back down to zero. It rocks, it reels, and then it consoles you when you come back down. 

The past year has seen a flurry of tours, workshops, house concerts, and festivals for the duo and the momentum has become a way of life. The accolades keep coming in but like real artists, they will never truly define them. For Kagey and Laura it is wherever they hang their hat that is home. The art of the road for them is about making every stop count, never leaving, always arriving.

RITA HOSKING with SEAN FEDER
NOVEMBER 9, 2014
$20 suggested donation

Rita Hosking sings of forest fires, culture clash, demolition derbies, the working class and hope. From NPR's Weekend Edition to Bob Harris's BBC show, Rita is moving audiences around the globe with her stories in song and doubly sweet and sinewy voice, a captivating performer.

Rita's style of country-folk has been lauded for story and sense of place, and her performances praised for capturing the audience. This California girl comes by her mountain-music sensibility with true authenticity, with original songs deeply rooted in her family's frontier experience, and Rita's fans call her "the real deal". A descendant of Cornish miners who sang in the mines, Rita grew up with deep regard for folk music and the power of the voice.
