• Saturday, May 18: “The Music of Your Life” by Terry Herron and the Savannah Jazz All Stars: A virtual potpourri of American Standards, as performed by Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Michael Buble, Neil Diamond and James Taylor. Croon-meister Terry Herron is your vocalist and M.C, joined by his most talented friends.

• Saturday, June 1, Another Roadside Attraction: Direct from Roanoke, Virginia, Another Roadside Attraction’s signature sound is equal parts gypsy jazz, vaudeville, circus funhouse, and riverboat steam, “rattled around in a boxcar for a couple
thousand miles, served with sangria and sausages.” Garden & Gun magazine praises them: “Another Roadside Attraction brings a cabaret presence to the stage along with a fully acoustic potluck of instruments, including a fiddle, a banjo, a kazoo, a musical saw, a box o’ wrenches, a ukulele, and a made-from-scratch drum kit sporting an American Tourister suitcase in lieu of a kick drum. “Samsonite was lacking, as a drum,” explains Jordan Rivers, the band’s guitarrón player and one of its founding members. The sextet’s music is as distinctive and colorful as its look — beautiful, bizarre, sometimes eerie, and always fun.”
• Saturday, June 15: Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer are Grammy Award Winners for children’s songs and folk music. “As close to flawless folk-bluegrass as it gets,” says Billboard Magazine. The duo has a repertoire of traditional and contemporary folk, old-time country and swing music.
• Saturday June 29: Angela Easterling and the Beguilers: “Angela Easterling
has a golden glowing voice and she writes observant songs about contemporary life. She can weave urban sprawl and cultural shifts into songs as gingerly as love and relationships,” said Craig Havighurst, Music City Roots.
