The St. George, David Cavan Fraser

Peforming Saturday, May 17 at 10 pm is David Cavan Fraser.

Since 2007, David’s show has consisted of a combination of music, audience participation and comedy that leaves a lasting impression with the audience.

He has begun to master the art of entertaining a crowd and his songs connect with people in such a way as to make them laugh, cry and think about their lives in new ways.

Age-old Celtic Music through 50s, 60s, 70s and up to today.

Special Night – Kev Morse plays “Open Mic” at The Bistro at Sivercreek, May 15

KevMorseHonored to have Kev Morse join us this Thursday, May 15 at 9 pm at The Bistro at Silvercreek. I was fortunate to catch a live performance recently and was quite impressed. Singer songwriter with occasional covers. Sophisticated pop acoustic sound. Music with a message, performed at a professional level.

Here is a sample of Kev’s work, both from his CD and from Live performance, during an “in the studio” session on Folk Roots Radio. For Kev’s Live sound, scan to the 39:00 mark.
Also … another Kev … Kevin Misner at 8 pm. He turned heads last time he played. Relaxed but powerful player. And Adam Farr is back! Nice to have his soulful harp to complete the night, 10 pm.

Special Event, Bill Craig at The Shepherd’s Crook

bill craigI’ve heard very good things about Bill Craig, the Irish Musician and Entertainer, and how he has been well received by audiences at The Shepherd’s Crook. Join him this Friday, May 9 around 8-12pm.

From his Website:

“Bill Craig’s performance is relaxed eclectic, thought provoking, goofy and entertaining. His casual attitude is designed to include, not exclude his audience, be it eight or eight hundred people. Bill puts all his energy into his songs and makes a point of having a good time on stage. This usually translates to his audience having a similar experience.”

The Bistro at Silvercreek Open Mic, May 8

Aah, The Bistro at Silver Creek … a growing reputation for great food, fine wines and craft beer.

7:30 Neil Cotton, lead singer/songwriter of Hawk’s Nest is our Featured Act: http://upickedcotton.tripod.com/neil/

8:15-9 pm Cam Jenkins returns to mark his ‘official’ debut

10 pm Luckyfool, a duo with Reverend Rob and his musical partner. Looking forward to the return of Rob’s nice vocals, and my guess is his mate is no slouch.
