Nov 11 @ 8:00 pm

Kathy MatteaWhat began as an experiment— trying out a wide range of new songs and styles with a fresh approach to singing — has become a successful full-blown tour for Grammy winner Kathy Mattea and her long-time guitarist, collaborator and friend Bill Cooley. The Acoustic Living Room Tour brings this dynamic musical duo together for an evening of great songs and great stories in a simple, relaxed performance that spotlights the pair’s acoustic guitar chops and Kathy’s lithe, expressive vocal style.

Sit back and enjoy Kathy’s beloved classics such as “18 Wheels and a Dozen Roses,” “Where’ve You Been?” and many other hits, plus a handful of more eclectic and often requested tunes from her extensive catalogue, and a sprinkling of brand new material, all reinterpreted for this new format.

Malpass Brothers
Mar 16 @ 8:00 pm

Malpass BrothersIf you like cornbread and hush puppies, you are going to love the Malpass Brothers. With sincerity, honesty and an utter ease on stage that belies their years, the Malpass Brothers’ smooth vocal blend and skillful musicianship layer into the deep respect they pay to legends who came before them.

As young boys, Christopher and Taylor soaked up the music of their granddad’s phonograph records. Christopher earned his first talent show trophy at age 7, and Taylor was playing mandolin by the time he was 10. Today, they promote the work and music of classic country artists they treasure while creating new music and making their own mark in the lineage of a rich American cultural heritage.
