In West Texas, in the lull between World War Two and the Korean Conflict, Sonny and Duane are best friends. Enduring that awkward period of life between boyhood and manhood, the two pass their time the best way they know how — at the movie house, playing football, and girls. Jacey is Duane’s steady, wanted by every boy in school, and she knows it. Her daddy is rich and her mom is good looking and loose. It’s the general consensus that whoever wins Jacey’s heart will be set for life. But this small town is dying a quiet death as folks head for the big cities to make their livings and raise their kids. The boys are torn between a future somewhere out there beyond the borders of town or making do with their inheritance of a run-down pool hall and a decrepit movie house — the legacy of their friend and mentor, Sam the Lion. As high school graduation approaches, they learn some difficult lessons about love, loneliness, and jealousy. Then folks stop attending the second-run features at the …

David Berkeley in concert with Shawn James

Friday, May 17 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $18 on line and $25 at the door (cash)
David Berkeley is an evocative singer-songwriter with, “Emotional story-telling lyrics, charismatic stage presence, and hilarious anecdotes” (June Wulff, THE BOSTON GLOBE). Dubbed, “A musical poet” by the SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, David was named one of WXPN’s “Artists to Watch,” wrote his song “Fire Sign” for the CBS series Without a Trace and went on to perform on World Café, Mountain Stage, XM’s Loft Sessions, WFUV with John Platt and radio and television stations across the country. He received ASCAP’s Johnny Mercer Songwriter Award and, perhaps most notably, performed on PRI’s This American Life, telling the awkward and hilarious story of a private serenade he was hired to perform to help a guy win back an ex-girlfriend. Don’t miss this evening with the enchanting David Berkeley featuring songs from his new album, THE FIRE IN MY HEAD.

And to start us off for the evening our opening act Shawn James.

Born on the south side of Chicago, Shawn James had a hardworking, kind mother and a gambling, abusive, drunk father. He grew up singing in church and was drawn to the emotional and ethereal power that music could have over people. It was there that he found his escape and learned how to harness his unique, soulful voice.

Shawn now lives in Fayetteville, Arkansas playing a raw, haunting mix of Blues, Folk, and Soul music. You might catch him playing on the street in the rain some night, rockin at a bar while you get rowdy, or you might just find him performing an intimate set for friends at a house show. No matter where you see him, just make sure you have your eyes and ears open, his performance will be one you won’t forget.

Two more moves in May–Bernie and Dazed and Confused-we will talk about those in the next blog!

Another place that features really interesting artists is The Old Firehouse in Edom.
Nick Annis: Live, Original, Acoustic Concert

•Saturday, May 11th, 2013 @ 7:30pm
Nick Annis finds the spoken word, either plain or set to music and accompanied by instruments, more alive than anything written. His way with words touches heart and conscience while addressing issues of fairness and everyday life.
He is admired by folk fans for the storytelling talent that makes his performances so memorable in the style of brilliant songwriter/storytellers like Gamble Rogers, John McCutcheon, and Dave Carter. Drawing on his diverse background and Greek roots, Nick crafts “true” stories and timeless accounts of humanity.
An award-winning songwriter, Nick was honored to have his spoken word piece, “In the Beginning,” recorded by Chuck Brodsky on his CD “Tulips for Lunch”. Nick’s song “By My Silence”, co-written with Ellen Bukstel, has been covered by Sonia (Splash), Sam Weiser (Sam I Am) and is being sung now by church choirs in six states.
**Must be 13 years old or older to attend this event.
Cost: $12 in advance or $15 at the door.
