The return of James Woodstock and The Vegan Piranhas, long time hosts of Open Mic Night at The Copper Kettle!james w

The calm, steadying sound of James Woodstock`s largely original material, reminiscent of Steve Earle, Tom Russell and Guy Clark, has been missed. Room for three, on a good day, on The Bistro stage. So this edition of The Vegan bandmates will include Patrick Fraser on bass, and Carl Agar on mandolin and backing vocals. Tip of the hat to Philip John Lewin, Peter Perko, Cliff Simon, Dave Beazley and others who will be MIA … we`ve lost some good men to this stage 🙂

Come early … gonna be busy, and the boys will be playing 7:30-8:30.

Open Mic immediately afterward.

Saddle up and ride over to Torino Gate, because Georgetown’s going country in a big way. The Cumberland Brothers’ sets include a mix of old country songs by artists like The Louvin and Delmore Brothers, backed with guitar, banjo and fiddle. So,
