Saturday, August 17 at 7:30 p.m. 

Vicki Kristina Barcelona is Rachelle Garniez, Amanda Homi and Terry Radigan, a power trio of seasoned music veterans dedicated to re-imagining the songs of Tom Waits via inventive three-part harmonies and a treasure trove of instruments including banjos, bottles, squeezebox, and zills.  They create a world of sound at once powerful, playful and poignant. Seasoned singers and songwriters, each a hybrid story-teller and multi-instrumentalist in her own right, join forces to salute the tragicomic lyrical genius of the Waits songbook. Picture the Triplets of Belleville disguised as Depression Era hobos riding the rails across America stopping to play dance parties and funerals along the road to nowhere. 

Three distinct styles form a captivating original mix, greater than the sum of its' parts, never failing to amaze and delight audiences of all stripes.  Collectively, they have worked with artists including Jack White, Jackson Browne, Jane Siberry, Patty Loveless, Dan Penn, Ray La Montaigne, Thomas Dolby, and Taylor Mac.

Michael Jerling 

Friday, August 30 at 7:30 p.m.

Born and raised in Illinois, songwriter Michael Jerling became involved with music while helping to run the campus coffeehouse at the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire. Now settled in Saratoga Springs, New York, Michael has been a noted artist on the club, college and festival circuits of North America since 1975. His baritone voice is backed up with consummate skill on six & twelve string guitars, harmonica and mandolin, all buoyed by his dry sense of humor.

Michael was a winner of the prestigious "New Folk" competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas, and his involvement with the seminal Fast Folk Musical Magazine in New York City led to his song Long Black Wall being included in the Smithsonian Folkways CD celebrating twenty years of Fast Folk.

2018 marked the release of his latest album, Family Recipe, featuring 12 new original songs on his own Fool's Hill Music label. Family Recipe reached #8 on the Folk DJ Chart. Halfway Home was released in 2014 and Music Here Tonight, recorded live at the legendary Caffè Lena in Saratoga Springs, NY, was released in 2009. Also, on Fool's Hill are Crooked Path (2007) and Little Movies (2001). My Evil Twin (1992) and New Suit of Clothes (1994) were released on the Shanachie label, and in 1997, In Another Life came out on the Portland, Oregon based Waterbug Records. Early Jerling (1998), also on Waterbug, is a digitally remastered compilation of selected cuts from his self-released LPs On Top of Fool's Hill (1981), and Blue Heartland (1988).

Through all of these recordings and in his live performances, Michael displays his first-rate lyrical sense and impressive musicianship - borrowing from blues, rock, country and R&B. A keen student of the good and ghastly in American life, Michael weaves themes like a novelist, evoking our shortcomings and dreams without yielding to cynicism or sentimentality. Often praised as a "songwriter's songwriter" who composes in styles influenced by the wealth of American music, he has been characterized as an artist who performs his "extraordinary songs with the uncommon ability to deliver them to an audience with power and grace".

David Owens & Co.
Saturday, October 5 at 7:30 p.m.
David Owens, “the singing bus driver”, hails originally from Troy, New York and currently lives in Schenectady. David’s songs cover a wide variety of themes from social commentary to relationships to a stirring tribute to Hank Williams, Sr. His styles encompass the range from country to folk to rock with a bit of Sinatra thrown in to round things out. Bill Holszt of the Philadelphia Inquirer once described him as “a very gifted singer, whose voice has a timbre worthy of Tim Buckley and who also has the sort of storytelling gifts of Townes Van Zandt, a truly unusual and winning combination.” His latest CD includes “Hank”, his tribute to the country music legend as well as “The Poverty Line”, a song whose description of the vanishing American middle class is like a Michael Moore documentary condensed down to four minutes with characters straight out of modern day Steinbeck novel. As a school bus driver, part-time carpenter, and performer, his songs are steeped in the gritty realities and hopes and dreams embodied in the working life.
