Friday February 3 – PATH BAND

PATH plays flat-out fantastic music, blending catchy, hand crafted melodies with witty lyrics to create a performance that has rhythm, style, and humor. Principal members Jose Diaz & Chris Hedly are based out of Ann Arbor MI & have been co-writing the all-original material since 2008. Jose Diaz hails from Argentina and brings a unique Latin sound to the project. Chris Hedly grew up in Virginia with a strong folk music tradition. If you're partial to the sweet shades of Simon & Garfunkel but can't resist the rowdy fun of OK Go, consider yourself in a high-risk group for having way too much fun with these guys. Check them out. You deserve no less.

Saturday February 4 – JOHN LAMB

Singer-songwriter John D. Lamb has spent most of his life in Michigan, but he writes songs as if he's spent his whole life on the road - which, I suppose, isn't surprising considering his busy touring schedule. A tireless performer, Lamb spends quite a bit of time trekking around the state and nearby areas, continuously winning new fans with his brand of Midwestern roots rock. His brand-new CD "A Novel Day" (Schoolkids' Records) demonstrates Lamb's finesse with simple, evocative and catchy songcrafting. The songs range from quiet meditations on broken relationships ("You Threw Me") and deferred dreams ("Matador") to bouncy, countrified pop ("I Want You Bad," "Don't Sound Sound") and straight-up roots rock ("Comin' Undone"). His songs speak with a Hemingwayesque world-weary romanticism, particularly in "Matador," which is something of an informal tribute to Papa. Lisa Wexton/Metro Times

Saturday February 18 – FEBRUARY SKY

February Sky is traditional singer and Celtic guitarist Phil Cooper with songwriter and singer Susan Urban. Phil sings and plays his own arrangements of traditional songs and tunes on six string guitar and cittern, and he also interprets a number of carefully chosen songs from the best of modern Folk song writers, as well as backing Susan up on her songs. Susan Urban is a writer of story songs and humorous "slice of life" songs. She accompanies her songs, plus Phil’s songs and tunes, on six and 12-string guitar, six string banjo, mountain dulcimer, hand percussion instruments and Native American Style flute. Phil and Susan present a combination of old and new songs addressing the widest possible range of experience, complete with vocal harmony, intricate instrumentation and thoughtful stagecraft. They believe that Folk Music is a continuum - whether the songs are self-penned or have a history thousands of years old, as long as they speak to the human condition and the human heart, they carry on the Folk Music tradition.
