February 29 – Jen Lowe ($17/$15 for Friends Members). 7:30 pm – doors open at 7 pm. Having toured with prestigious national and international artists, Lowe is a journey-woman through and through.  And when the dust settles, there’s Jen’s voice, swaying gently and beautifully, between each song. Never taking herself too seriously in life or on the stage, you will often find her giggling and at ease as she tells a funny anecdote or reaches into her soul to share the darker parts of her journey. She is a true natural performer, whether she’s pounding ferociously on a djembe or gently finger-picking her old guitar; as a multi-instrumentalist, Jen’s shows are spontaneous, fun and never predictable.  Her stage presence, songwriting, and musical ability have instantly captured audiences from state to state. Her lovelorn poetic verses and catchy choruses will remain in your head, long after the last note is played.

March 14 – Liz Longley ($18/$16 for Friends Members). 7:30 pm – doors open at 7 pm. This Berklee College of Music College alum is best known for her stop-you-in-your-tracks voice and for her deeply emotional music.  Based out of Nashville, Liz has earned accolades from some of the most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country, including the BMI John Lennon Songwriting Scholarship Competition. Her self-titled debut album received critical acclaim, being described as “a thing of beauty” and “packed with instantly memorable pop rock songs…”  Her follow up album released in 2016, was praised as “stunning” and “something more; a cleverness, a wit and a mix of musical styles.”  Liz’s music has been featured on tv shows such as Lifetime’s “Army Wives,” ABC’s “Beauty & The Beast” and MTV’s “Scream.” Visit her site:  https://www.lizlongley.com  and watch her perform: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FUBgU-wghw.

March 21 – Don White ($19/$17 for Friends Members). 7:30 pm – doors open at 7 pm. There is no one-word description for what Don White does. He has survived and thrived for more than twenty years, bringing his audiences to laughter and tears in his live performances, studio recordings, and on the printed page. He is a storyteller-comedian-author-troubadour-folk singer-songwriter. He is a walking challenge to the phrase “file under.” Best to just sort him under “Don White.”

April 4 – Lucy Kaplansky ($20/$18 for Friends Members). 7:30 pm – doors open at 7 pm. Lucy started out singing in Chicago folk music clubs as a teenager. Then, barely out of high school, Lucy took off for New York City. There she found a fertile community of songwriters and performers—Suzanne Vega, Steve Forbert, The Roches, and others. With a beautiful flair for harmony, Lucy was everyone’s favorite singing partner, but most often she found herself singing as a duo with Shawn Colvin. The New York Times said it was “easy to predict stardom for her.” She harmonized on Nanci Griffith’s albums and landed soundtrack credits, singing with Suzanne Vega on “Pretty in Pink” and with Griffith on “The Firm,” and several commercial credits as well—including “The Heartbeat of America” for Chevrolet.  In 1998 Lucy teamed with Dar Williams and Richard Shindell to form supergroup Cry Cry Cry. Many years and many albums later, Lucy is still making audiences smile with her songwriting, her beautiful voice, and her stories about life and love.
