An Evening with George Wilson,
Larry Hanks & Deborah Robins

8:00 PM, $15 donation at the door

American songsters Larry Hanks & Deborah Robins sing & play a wonderful collection of "brand-spankin' OLD songs!" Larry, who has performed all over the place for 50 years, combines his melifluous bass-baritone voice with Debora's resonant alto to bring to life a wealth of songs about life's trials & tribulations. Add George Wilson to the mix with his fiddle, Uncle Dave Macon songs on banjo, and Lead Belly songs on the 12-string, and who knows what will happen!



Fun, simple dances from the U.S. and around the world. For every age and ability. All dances will be taught. Circles, contras, squares.

Featuring: Fennig's All Stars
with caller Paul Rosenberg

7:00 - 9:30 PM

Brother Sun
Super-folk trio with
Greg Greenway, Pat Wictor
and Joe

8:00 PM
Tickets: $23/adults; $5/children 12 & under

National Touring Artists Greg Greenway, Pat Wictor, and Joe Jencks have made their mark as veteran touring singer-songwriters, but Brother Sun is no songwriter’s round. The trio’s harmonies, as much as their lyrics, tell what they are about: warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, rousing as a call to arms. Fusing folk, Americana, blues, pop, jazz, rock, and a cappella singing, Brother Sun is an explosion of musical diversity and harmony, in the finest of male singing traditions.
