Songwriter Showcase – Singer/Songwriters in the Round Bob Chabot, Lisa Martin, Steve Dedman & Gracie Day

January 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

We turn our stage over to artists we have met through our long-running Open Mic nignts. Lisa Martin ran the Hootenanny/Songwriter Sessions at The Vanilla Bean Café for several years and will be our Open Mic featured performer on May 1. Lisa’s music bridges the elements of folk, rock, country and blues with her pop sensibilities, heartfelt delivery and quick wit. Gracie Day was our September feature. Her EP, the Nashville Sessions, is “a remarkably dense and richly textured piece of work, one that showcases Day’s smoky vocals and extraordinary phrasing.” –Worcester Telegram & Gazette. Steve Dedman, frontman for Americana band “Plywood Cowboy,” writes heart-born songs that interweave country roots with singer-songwriter traditions. Steve will be our feature March 6. Bob Chabot was a Kerrville finalist and a member of the Fast Folk Songwriting community. He will be our Open Mic feature on June 5 of this year.
