Catherine Feeney & Chris Johnedis

Friday, July 3 at 9:30pm

Some of the most beautiful songs are the ones that make you feel like you should hold your breath -- songs that are so delicate and intimate that you’re scared to interrupt their suspended magic. There’s a newer one to add to your collection: "Carrier Pigeon," by Catherine Feeny and Chris Johnedis, off their new self-titled record. Feeny says the song came from her reading The New Jim Crow, about institutional racism in the American prison system. She started thinking about incarceration in both literal and metaphorical ways, and “Carrier Pigeon” -- with its lyrics begging for release from some cage -- was born - Allison Hussey

The Harmed Brothers

Friday, July 24 at 9:30pm

Portland, Oregon “indiegrass” outfit the Harmed Brothers are an up-and-coming force within the 21st century American roots music scene. Born in 2009, it began as the brainchild of guitarist/vocalist Ray Vietti, eventually evolving into a three-piece at the foothills of the Appalachian mountains in Western North Carolina, backed by bassist Zach Kilmer and drummer Ben Kilmer. In making their way towards the Pacific Northwest, it was in the tiny forest town of Cottage Grove, Oregon where Vietti and The Harmed Brothers happened along songwriter and eventual banjo player/vocalist Alex Salcido. Upon meeting, the two songwriters became fast friends and soon after, it would be in Eugene, Oregon where they began writing and performing together and The Harmed Brothers became an entirely new beast in itself, now consisting of two front men, melding two unique talents, a beautiful collision of two different styles of heartfelt songwriting and storytelling.

Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons

Saturday, August 8 at 9:30pm

Jerry Joseph has worn a lot of hats over more than three decades in the music trenches – righteous rocker, hyper-observant cultural observer, spiritual & political firebrand, force of nature live performer – but the bedrock of what he does has always been songwriting of the highest caliber. Joseph is a kindred tunesmith to sharp, craftsmanship minded pros like Elvis Costello, Warren Zevon and Nick Lowe, where the resoundingly sturdy bones inside their compositions shape things no matter what’s draped over them. It’s a dedication to fundamentals and classic singer-songwriter standards that’s increasingly rare and welcome in a music environment that emphasizes texture and mood over substance. While Joseph has made acoustic albums in the past his new self-titled record (available 10/31/13 on Cosmo Sex School) is his most exposed studio effort to date, the man, his guitar and songs standing in the spotlight with an open invitation for listeners to sit at his heel as he explores some of the strongest, finest reaches of his rich catalog.
