Here’s what we have so far




Sept 7 - Fred Eaglesmith - Vagabond Blues

Fred is a a hard charging , edgy Canadian singer-songwriter whose first Whistling Swan appearance was selected by Mark Dudick, arts section editor in the "Anchorage Daily News" at the time, as the Concert of the Year.

  Sept. 8 - Roots on the Rail Review featuring Fred Eaglesmith, Gurf Morlix, Mary Gauthier, and others - Hard Rock Caf'e special events room.

October 3 and 4 - Sarah JArosz - Vagabond Blues and the Discovery Theatre

"The silver voiced, silver fingered, silver penned Sarah JArosz" - Chris Thile

  October 21 - 22- Birds of Chicago - Duo featuring Allison Russell (who appeared here with her band Po'Girl) and JT Nero, the Birds present an eclectic blend of high energy, beautiful songs. Google 'em and read what NPR and other media outlets say.
  October 28 and 29 Mandolin Orange Sydney Laurence Theatre and Vagabond Blues

"Mandolin Orange has been quietly gathering local and faraway fans since its debut album was released back in 2010. The North Carolina duo’s music - laced with bluegrass, country and folk - is often wistful and contemplative without being somber, and always firmly grounded in the South." - WNYC Soundcheck

  November 11 - Three Grammy Award winners on one stage!!!!!
The legendary Tom Paxton will join two other Grammy Award winners - Jon Vezner and Don Henry ( known collectively as the Don Juans). Tom has influenced countless singers with his "live" performances, wit, singing, and songs , most notably "The Last Thing on My Mind." In the nearly 25 years since collaborating to write the gorgeous "Where've You Been," Don and Jon have performed in venues from the Bottom Line in New York City to the Bluebird Caf'e in Nashville, sharing stages with artists as diverse as Joey Ramone, John Hartford, Michael Johnson, and David Crosby. Their songs have been recorded by a multitude of artists including Janis Ian, Ray Charles, John Mellencamp, and Miranda Lambert to name a few. Working as a duo, the DonJuans bring an impressive array of songs, experience, and gifted musicianship.

April 26, 2018 - The Wailin' Jennys - Glenn Massay Theatre - Gorgeous harmonies, great songs!

April 28, 2018 - The Wailin' Jennys - Wendy Williamson Auditorium
