May 17 AL PETTEWAY AND AMY WHITEhave long been a favorite, with their eclectic repertoire that includes original, traditional, contemporary Celtic- and Appalachian-influenced music with occasional nods to Blues, New Age, and Jazz. Their performances feature acoustic guitar, mandolin, Celtic harp, piano, banjo, mountain dulcimer, and some of the finest vocals you'll hear in any genre. Their music has been featured on a number of Ken Burns documentary films, most notably the soundtrack of the Ken Burns EMMY-winning documentary, The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.
June 14 JOHN CONOLLY is an internationally-respected singer/songwriter based in the British folk tradition known for his thought-provoking, tuneful, and often outrageously funny songs. He has performed in venues from concert-halls to local pubs throughout Britain, the Netherlands, Germany, and the U.S.A. His best known songs, Fiddlers’ Green and Punch & Judy Man, have been recorded by dozens of artists. Netherlands native ROB van SANTE has lived most of his life in England. He has toured extensively in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. Rob’s sensitive guitar accompaniments and vocal harmonies complement John’s tuneful and thought-provoking songs, and together they provide a thoroughly entertaining evening of good music and great humor.
