Upcoming Events

  • Sat, November 1st, 2014, 7:30pm
    at The Congregational Church of Huntington
    In a career that now spans two decades, New York duo Pete and Maura Kennedy have traversed a broad musical landscape, surveying power pop, acoustic songwriting, organic rock rooted in their early days in Austin, and a Byrds-inspired jangle that drew the attention of Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, and most notably Nanci Griffith. The duo co-produced Nanci's latest CD. On their own recent release, "Closer Than You Know," the songs have a quality, inherent in Maura’s voice, that is both soothing and urgent.

    Libby Koch (pronounced “coke”) is a Houston-based Americana singer-songwriter who draws from a classic blend of country, folk and rock. She performed this summer at the Kerrville Folk Festival’s Threadgill Theater and in the Emerging Artists Showcase at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. She also was a finalist in the Wildflower! Performing Songwriter Contest and a semifinalist in the Songwriter Serenade. Libby was named Songwriter of the Year (2013) by the Houston Press and was selected for official showcases at last year’s Southwest Regional Folk Alliance (SWRFA) and this year’s Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) conferences. She cites Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams, Janis Joplin, Patty Griffith & Dolly Parton as influences. Manitoba Hal is a guitarist, songwriter and ukulele player. Using a combination of looping technology and effects, he creates a performance that is one-of-a-kind. His combination of finger picking and strumming creates an instantly accessible sound that complements his fresh and inventive originals and arrangements of traditional blues.

    In a career that spans five decades, 23 albums and three GRAMMY awards, multi-talented singer/songwriter/guitarist Tom Chapin has covered an incredible amount of creative ground. In addition to his work as a recording artist and concert performer, Chapin has acted on Broadway, as well as working extensively in films, television and radio. As a music-maker, Chapin has maintained two long and productive parallel careers, both as a highly respected contemporary folk artist and as a pioneer in the field of children's music. In the former role, Chapin has established a reputation for insightful, heartfelt songcraft and effortlessly charismatic live performances. In the latter, he continues to engage the hearts, minds and imaginations of young listeners with witty, life-affirming original songs delivered in a sophisticated array of musical styles. In either format, Chapin's infectious songs, sterling musicianship and personal warmth consistently shine through, whether he's performing on record or in a concert hall, an outdoor festival, a school, in front of a symphony orchestra or in an intimate coffeehouse.
