The last time Ronny played at FolkHouse he packed the house, so get your reservations in early!
"In Hollywood, they say it takes smart actors to play stupid characters, and nice guys to play nasty villains. Cox is the poster-boy for the latter point. He played slithery corporate snakes in "RoboCop" and "Total Recall;" but as a singer-songwriter, he is a study in easygoing amiability and unforced charisma. He charms crowds with self-teasing humor, tart progressive insight, and a lulling Southwestern folk sound. His repertoire is a smart mix of witty ditties, bluesy swing tunes, heart-on-sleeve romances, and real-life anthems ('It's a cry in the night/ It's a whispered prayer/ That gets you from here to there'). " Scott Alarik, The Boston Globe
In his latest album Ronny, Rad and Karen, as well as Songs...With Repercussions, "How I Love Them Old Songs", "At The Sebastiani", "Ronny Cox Live", "Cowboy Savant" and "Acoustic Eclectricity", Ronny Cox showcases a wonderful acoustic mix of folk, western, jazzy-bluesy and just plain corn ball stuff.
We've seen Mark several times on the FolkHouse stage as half of the "Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart" duo. This time, Stacey's staying home and we're going to be treated to a night of Mark solo with his tasty guitar playing, original songs and some special treats. C'mon down!

Also, he does “tribute” songs to those notable artists he used to work for, and, includes fascinating stories about the experiences along the way.

It's been seven years since Jory last graced our stage and we are EXTREMELY happy to have him back! He's a fantastic songwriter, singer, guitarist, all around nice guy and Canadian to boot!
1) Jory Nash collects hats. He has over 200 of them. Some are classics (i.e. bowlers, pork pies, fedoras), some are fashionable train wrecks. Most are somewhere in between these two extremes.
Eric Taylor is a force of nature, a brilliant writer, sage observer of humanity, mesmerizing performer and one of my favorite people on the planet. 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 might best be described as an unblinking theatrical human experience. Performance art at its best. I can't recommend this show enough...
