BENNETT HARRIS


Acoustic blues legend Bennett Harris performed for the HARD LUCK CAFÉ in its premiere season, and we were proud to present him again this evening in celebration of his superb new CD release Long Way Back.

Bennett's roots grew deep in the tradition of revered blues artists like Robert Johnson and Blind Lemon Jefferson, but he is no ultra-purist. His works like Boy, You're in Trouble Now and Benny Gets the Cool Breeze are comfortably familiar but neither derivative nor clichéd.

Our evening with Bennett will not soon be forgotten.

MARK YODICE


Fingerstyle guitarist Mark Yodice possesses an elegant, graceful style strongly reminiscent of Michael Hedges but with its own unique qualities. Mark's playing was amazingly subtle and complex, and he performed with an ease and confidence that older players might well envy.

Mark is currently recording his own compositions for an eagerly anticipated EP, due out early next year.
