  • Wheatfield is a quartet of music and songwriting veterans. The group originated in Houston TX back in the 70's. After a 25 year hiatus, the band reformed and began to write and perform again in 2004. Wheatfield consists of Craig Calvert, Connie Mims, Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet. Their music is diverse as the members of the band and made stronger by that diversity. An evening with Wheatfield runs the gamut of songs written by the younger band as well as newer songs that deal with life from the perspective of 30 plus years after the band's inception. Wheatfield is not content to be a museum piece echoing its past. It's an alive, forward moving unit.

  • You could easily say these two musicians were born to make music together. Identical twins Katy Lou and Penny Lea Clark of The Purple Hulls were raised on a working family farm in the deep piney woods of East Texas, but that didn’t stop the Texans from finding their way to the hills of Tennessee, specifically, Music City, where they began touring with various artists and writing songs for Nashville’s largest publishing company, Sony Tree. The Purple Hulls are no stranger to road life and are now blazing the trail as a dynamic sister duo, showcasing their unique sibling harmonies while ripping the strings off any instrument they can get their hands on. If you’re looking for authentic acoustic driven music delivered at its best, your search is over.

  • Imagine if Simon and Garfunkel were lost at sea, salt in their beards, wind at their backs, and whiskey in their bottles. What songs would they sing whilst stomping like melodious madmen on the boards of their boat? Or set yourself adrift for a piece, untether yourself from your daily affairs, bring only fresh water, a large writing pad and plenty of pencils. With only the endless sky above and the wine-dark waters below, what half-crazed tales would pour out of you? Welcome to the mythic world of Son of Town Hall, the unusual union of Ben Parker of London, England, and David Berkeley of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Parker, a highly sought-after London-based songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist, and Berkeley, a celebrated singer/songwriter/guitarist/author have imagined a world that transcends time and space, complete with Victorian-era outfits, meditations about the sea and songs that beg you to sing along. The show is three-parts concert, one-part theater. It will leave you transformed, with your heart full of laughter and tears, drunk on adventure and the tragic beauty of the human condition.
  • Grace Pettis, from Lookout Mountain, Alabama, has songwriting in her blood. The daughter of a poetry scholar and a troubadour, Grace comes by her love of words honestly. Her father is Pierce Pettis, and both of her brothers Rayvon and George (100 Watt Horse) are songwriters and musicians.

  • A life full of human experience, reading, global travel, and the ‘on the road’ explorations of a performer have enhanced Jordi’s skill as an honest musical storyteller. These intangible qualities run through all of the songs on Like the First Time and, in 2017, have enabled Jordi to be recognized by two prestigious Texas songwriting competitions, the Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition (Regional Finalist) and the Songwriter Serenade Competition (Semifinalist).
