JACOB JOHNSON 
Friday, May 17, 2019 
7:30 P.M.
$20

THIS GUY CAN PLAY!!!

Part virtuoso and part storyteller, you might say that Jacob Johnson does with a guitar what Gene Kelly did with dance. Although his songwriting has won awards and his guitar-playing has put him on stage with Tommy Emmanuel and Phil Keaggy, his ability as an entertainer is what has won fans throughout the country. He refers to himself as "a ham that just wants to be on stage" but he’s much more than that. Jacob is an amazingly talented guitarist and songwriter which, combined with a bit of a personality, makes for a wildly impressive stage performance.

SOCIETY OF BROKEN SOULS
Sunday, June 9, 2019 
7:30 P.M.
$20

Society of Broken Souls is the songwriting duo of multi-instrumentalists Dennis James and Lauryn Shapter. Performing their own brand of American Roots Music, they write unflinching songs that confront our shared, raw humanity while celebrating the beautiful mosaic of the human experience. Having performed in 25 states from coast to coast over the last decade, their live show features seamless harmony vocals and a wide array of instruments and sounds. From stripped down, bare-bones acoustic arrangements to a denser and edgier electric sound, their songs invite the listener to walk through the fire with them — and to find freedom, strength and courage on the other side.

ESCAPING PAVEMENT
Sunday, July 14, 2019 
7:30 P.M.
$20

From Detroit to Pasadena, to the high seas and then back to Detroit; it’s only when singer/songwriter duo Emily Burns and Aaron Markovitz escaped the neon blitz and car-strewn concrete of the city that they discovered how well their music could bloom when they brought it back to the roots. There is so much life and vitality in the Americana-folk journeys of Escaping Pavement, sprung entirely from an acoustic guitar, a mandolin, and two voices. Fiery passion, wistful reflection, awestruck adventurousness, and heartstring-plucking poignancy, the duo discovers, through song, the range of human emotion and celebrates the purities of what we’ve left behind for the artifices of tech trends, drug stores and cacophonous city centers.

KELLY HUNT 
featuring
Staś Heaney
Sunday, September 8, 2019 
7:30 P.M.
$20

Kelly Hunt is a singer-songwriter of Americana/Roots music—born and raised in Memphis, TN but now based out of Kansas City, MO. Kelly's primary instrument is her voice, which rings out with confidence and clarity of one who has been singing all her life. Accompanied by her 1920s tenor banjo, 5-string clawhammer banjo, and guitar, Kelly’s songs meld traditions of folk, classic country, and old-time music for a sound that is both timeless and fresh. Her songwriting is poetic but approachable, full of feeling and alive with storytelling. With her new debut album Even the Sparrow in hand, Kelly has embarked on her first national tour, accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Staś Heaney. (He's from Omaha!)

Staś is a classically-trained percussionist, pianist, and violinist. He brings elements of all these to the table when accompanying Kelly, but his instrument of choice is a 19th c. violin. Staś' deft arrangements lend vibrance and depth to Kelly's songs, weaving between banjo and vocals with evocative grace.

The Vogts Sisters, Sweet Sister Harmony from America's Heartland

Touring throughout the year in the Midwest, the Vogts Sisters (Abigail and Maggie) touch the hearts of audiences everywhere they go. The young musicians have garnered numerous awards in regional and international songwriting competitions and have over thirty original songs that fit seamlessly into their acoustic Americana-Folk act, blending timeless music with sweet sister harmony. 

The Vogts Sisters released their fourth album, Broken Ties, (May 2018) once again, highlighting ten original songs, while exploring the range and dynamics of their maturing harmonies and instrumentation on mandolin, fiddle, and guitar. Other album titles include Homeward (2016), My Own Dixie (2015), and Old Time Noise (2012). A few of their musical influences include Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, and Gillian Welch.

"Haunting harmonies and wickedly creative songs" - Ozark Highlands Radio, February 2017

"Maybe one of the best under-the-radar acts in the roots/string/grass genre' today..." - Americana Rhythm Magazine, March 2017

Here's a video from The Vogts Sisters previous visit to FolkHouse!
