Saturday, March 12, 2016 - SONGS OF PROTEST with Lisa Wildman and Mickey Biberfeld -
The idea of this evening performance came from the idea of hearing again the protest songs
of the early 1960s but expanded it to those of any era. Our main performers,
Lisa Wildman lisawildmanmusic.com

MAGPIE Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner
From traditional songs to vintage blues, swing and country to folk classics to contemporary and
stirring original compositions, they cover a lot of musical ground. With their powerful voices
and harmonies and their excellent instrumental arrangements on guitars, mandolin, harmonica,
dulcimer, and concertina, their sound is much bigger than just two people.
Saturday, May 14, 2015 - BRAD LITWIN
Brad Litwin is a ragtime jazz and stride blues guitarist who can sing! He will
be accompanied by Michael Salsburg on violin. With the rompin' stompin' finger-picking
styles of Blind Blake and Robert Johnson, adaptations of Fats Waller and Willie "the Lion" Smith
smooth crooning of the Mills Brothers, and the exhilaration of Bessie Smith,
Litwin marries peak guitar performance with a voice that engages from the first phrase -
dazzling as he shifts from dark to light, funny to tender, smooth to rollicking.
