Barnaby Bright is "Oh my god!!!" great. 
BARNABY BRIGHT
Saturday, July 14, 2018 
7:30 P.M.
$20 

Becky and Nathan Bliss are both classically-trained. The duo has made some cool Americana records, lived in Brooklyn, Nashville and Kansas, toured coast to coast, run out of money, toured Europe, run out of money again, won high-falutin' prizes for songwriting in New York, generally not argued, done benefit shows for prestigious US AAA radio stations, given away 200k+ tracks on Amazon, kept writing, built an audience, been named one of Amazon's Top 100 albums of the year, eaten copious amounts of vegetarian food, attracted 17k+ listeners a month on Spotify and FINALLY made a few records that speak to where they've been, who they are, what they want and where they're going. It's smart pop with an authentic Americana stamp, not the other way round. Oh yeah, somewhere in there they got married, but they'd rather not talk about that.

 


WELCOME BACK!!!
ERIC TAYLOR
Sunday, July 29, 2018 
7:30 P.M.
$20

Words can't convey the love and respect we have for Eric. We are proud to welcome him back for his 10th visit to FolkHouse!

Eric Taylor is a sage musician, a lyrical genius and a master of the guitar. If you're familiar with the intricate Texas singer/ songwriter jigsaw puzzle, you probably already know a lot about Taylor. If you're not familiar with Taylor by name, you've probably heard his songs performed by people such as Nanci Griffith and Lyle Lovett. He has created a multitude of fans and devotees that are legends themselves in the singer/songwriter realm, artists who have long considered Taylor to be a teacher and a lantern bearer whose time is long overdue.

 

 



So unique, and so fantastic!
THE ROUGH AND TUMBLE
Saturday, August 18, 2018 
7:30 P.M.
$20 

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.


 


THE FERALINGS
Saturday, September 8, 2018 
7:30 P.M.
$20

The Feralings are Benj Upchurch (mandolin / vocals), Nicole Upchurch (clawhammer banjo / vocals), Patrick Brickel (upright bass / vocals), and Stacy Webster (acoustic guitar / vocals), but the name is a bit of a misnomer, as the members of the band are far more likely to invite you to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea than they are to jump you and steal your beer money.

Patrick Brickel and Stacy Webster share a long musical partnership that includes performing in the critically acclaimed Iowa roots bands The Mayflies and The Letterpress Opry. While Patrick and Stacy went their own ways in 2003, with Patrick producing records and releasing several noteworthy solo albums (also as Patrick Bloom) and Stacy growing The Mayflies into a major Americana outfit, their musical collaborations continued, as did their close friendship. In the meanwhile, Nicole and Benj Upchurch moved to Iowa by way of Montana, hauling their charisma, humor, and a busload of instruments behind them. Nicole, being the blacksheep banjo player in a family of accomplished jazz musicians, joined Iowa's all-female quintet, Awful Purdies, and Benj, having worked as a luthier back West, decided to put aside building mandolins and started playing one with The Mayflies. Soon after a very unique kinship was born as gravity pulled the four of them into a quartet.

The result is The Feralings, a rare collaboration in which all members write, sing, laugh, engage in general naughtiness, and genuinely like each other. They travel a vast musical landscape, combining bully musicianship, sparkling harmonies, and evocative songwriting. And hey, they don't bite.



 

FRANCES LUKE ACCORD
Friday, October 19, 2018 
7:30 P.M.
$20 

After watching the first 20 seconds of a Frances Luke Accord performance video I knew we had to have them come to FolkHouse! This will be a great show!

Frances Luke Accord are an independent Chicago-based duo hailing originally from South Bend, Indiana. Both dedicated multi-instrumentalists and meticulous songwriters, Nicholas Gunty and Brian Powers distinguish their music with genre fluidity, buttery harmonies and acoustic ensembles. Although prevailingly a modern folk band, FLA sip copious inspiration from Americana, jazz, soul, and rock.

Since forming during their senior year at the University of Notre Dame, Frances Luke Accord's approach to music has marked a boundless evolution. In December of 2012 the duo released their first record, Kandote, a not-for-profit, intercultural collaboration with the Barefoot Truth Children’s Choir of Kkindu, Uganda — an endeavor that continues to support the primary education and musical aspirations of the choir. Bringing their world/folk sound to Chicago in the summer of 2013, the duo quickly garnered local and regional attention for their captivating live performances and stunning self-produced releases, including the Queen for Me EP (April 2014), Live @ Strobe (April 2015), and, most notably, their debut full-length album, Fluke (May 2016).

 

 


DANA COOPER
Friday, December 7, 2018 
7:30 P.M.
$20 

Legendary Texas singer songwriter Eric Taylor said of Cooper’s performance at Kerrville Fall Festival 2015 “Dana Cooper gave the best solo performance I’ve seen and heard for many years. Could be the best I’ve ever.”

Out of the heartland of America, stomping grounds of Truman and Twain, “powerhouse” troubadour Dana Cooper dedicated himself to a life of music over 40 years ago. This song poet engages and inspires audiences around the world with his quick wit, insightful stories and commanding presence. He is the recipient of the 2014 Heritage Musician award from Pilgrim Center for the Arts in Kansas City, MO. He was also named the 2015 Spirit of Folk award winner by Folk Alliance International. He has performed on Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage and the Kerrville Folk Festival where he was nominated for their Hall of Fame. Cooper’s songs have been recorded by top-notch artists such as bluegrass star Claire Lynch; Irish vocalist Maura O’Connell; and luminary songwriters Pierce Pettis and Susan Werner. Cooper’s mixture of flat-picking, finger-picking and percussive strumming style is legend among other guitarists. An expressive singer his voice is ageless evoking a rich lifetime of experience.

 

 


TIM GRIMM
Saturday, Feb.9, 2018  
7:30 P.M.
$20

“Tim’s songwriting reminds me of Guy Clark. The songwriting is simple, straightforward yet full of poetry. It closely observes everyday life and distills the small moments of joy and pleasure. Grimm’s vocal style also reminds me of Guy Clark’s unassuming way of putting across a song. It’s a voice in service to the lyric…..Tim Grimm reminds us of the authenticity of rural life and it’s heartfelt emotions, a life lived close to nature, in consonance with the cycle of the seasons. In this time we live in, when all seems inauthentic, when our politics are debased by rulers gone mad with power, Tim’s music helps reaffirm our faith in what this nation has been for more than two centuries and something to which we might someday return.” 
Richard Silverstein- Seattle
