A personal appeal...
Doug Marr, local playwright and my long-time friend, has been a key figure in supporting the arts in Omaha. Doug and his wife Laura, an accomplished actress herself, founded The Circle Theater over 30 years ago which has been influential in the small theater movement in Omaha for decades. They are devoted supporters of new playwrights and young artists as well as providing opportunities for persons with disabilities. Mounting medical bills have started to pile up and they could use a little help raising funds to pay those bills and also get the necessary equipment to make their home more accessible for Doug. Please consider a donation. 
                                           Thanks, Jerome and Mary

Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish share more than most couples. As the Honey Dewdrops, they share stages from venues to festivals across North America, stretches of rolling, infinite roadway, and a lot of songs; they share one mic and a hunger to pay attention to what endures. This hunger to explore and document is evident in their 2012 release Silver Lining, a Top Ten record on national Folk and Americana stations. With tight harmonies and an musical ensemble that includes clawhammer banjo, mandolin and guitars, the effect is to leave listeners with only what matters: the heart of the song and clarity over ornamentation.

 


SARAH MCQUAID

$20 suggested donation

Rising star Sarah McQuaid’s voice has been likened to malt whiskey, melted chocolate and “honey poured into wine” (Minor 7th). A captivating performer, she seduces her audience with cheeky banter and stories from the road, as well as with stunning musicianship; in her hands, the guitar becomes much more than merely an accompanying instrument.

Her musical output reflects her own eclectic background: Sarah was born in Spain, raised in Chicago, holds dual US and Irish citizenship, and now lives in rural England. Refusing to be pigeonholed, she spans the genres with both her beautifully crafted originals and her interpretations of material from around the globe and down the centuries. Sarah’s third solo album The Plum Tree and the Rose has drawn critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic: “Impeccable,” wrote fRoots (UK), while Midwest Record (USA) called it “low key but glorious and incendiary” and Hot Press (Ireland) said it “should feature on many end-of-year best-ofs.”

THE ROUGH AND TUMBLE

$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.

 


MARK STUART

Mark Stuart has been a fixture on the Americana/Folk music scene for 17 years. Non-stop touring landed the artist in theaters, clubs, radio, TV, house concerts, festivals, and coffeehouses. Much of this was solo, much of it in a duo "Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart". A fine singer, musician, and songwriter he is. In his performances expect stellar guitar work, soulful vocals, and thought-provoking songs. Interesting stories find their way into his show, too.

A career that has repeatedly taken Stuart to Europe, UK, Canada, and 49 of the United States began in his native Nashville as a teenage working musician. From membership in the Nashville Rebels (his
father's band that appeared in the Waylon Jennings movie "The Nashville Rebel") to sideman stints for Steve Earle, Freddy Fender, Joan Baez, and Steve Forbert he has NEVER STOPPED WORKING as an active musical force. In previous years the artist fronted rock/blues bands of his own that included notable guitarists Warren Haynes (Gov't Mule, Allman Brothers Band) and Dave Rawlings (Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings Machine) serving HIM as second guitarist!

Mark Stuart is celebrating his 50th birthday in January 2015 and touring as heavily as ever. Audiences will find his usual material from solo CDs and Stacey Earle/Mark Stuart CDs. But, they will also hear a special nod to Paul McCartney for the calendar year. Mark will expose which of his own songs were influenced by McCartney's style and include some McCartney tunes, delivered in MARK STUART style!
