Anni Clark won both "Female Artist of the Year" and "Folk Artist of the Year" in Jam Music Magazine´s 2003 Readers´ Pix Awards. A Maine native, she is known for her folksy, bluesy, and witty style. Dirty Linen Magazine says " in her latest CD,Big Water, "Anni Clark takes
major steps with her fifth solo album... she leads way to a metaphorical exploration of the natural world and reflects (her ) at her very finest. The Kennebec Journal writes "...she can have you laughing one moment and close to tears the next with the honest emotions in her material". A two-time finalist in the New Folk Songwriters´ Competition at Kerrville, Anni has performed at The Boston Folk Festival, The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival , and the Kerrville TX Wine and Music Festival. Northeast Performer Magazine wrote "Joni, Rickie, and Bonnie move over... make room for Anni!". www.anniclark.com.
Besides having one of the coolest names in blues, The Fleet Starbuck Blues Band has had a major influence on the Florida blues scene since 1982. We will hear Fleet solo with his Sigma DR28 Acoustic guitar. A 1967 Palmetto high graduate, he has played with Koko Taylor, Stevie
Ray Vaughn, Kim Wilson, Willy Nelson and Carolyn Hester at Kerrville. The band has been billed with Ramsey Lewis, John Lee Hooker, Maynard Ferguson and Herbie Mann; not bad company. Tobacco Road has been a regular venue for the band as well as most of the Grove clubs. www.Fleetstarbuck.com
Acoustic rock musician Paul Roub cut his musical teeth at age seven on The Beatles. Today he delivers mainly bittersweet, Americana-meets-Replacements originals with an eclectic mix of obscure music of Elvis Costello, The Who, The Kinks - noisy, melodic, interesting lyrics. His guitar style is percussive ala Pete Townsend or Ritchie Havens. He has been seen lately at The Chocolate Moose and Tobacco Road. He´s doing something right; he was chosen by New Times as Best Male Acoustic Performer. http://www.paulroub.com
With thirteen albums on Folkways Records under "Ragtime Bluegrass" and five string banjo world championships, Roger Sprung´s credentials are in order. For over thirty-five years he has been forging trends and created "progressive bluegrass". His fifty years of performing has seen him at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, touring with Josh White, Arlo Guthrie, Kay Starr and others. He will appear with veteran guitarist Joe Ricciardi and outstanding country singer Ray Onidi.
The 18 Wheelers
This group sings songs about trucks. Blending elements of roots rock, honky tank country, Western swing, rockabilly and bluegrass, they keep it upbeat and danceable. With three lead vocalists, this Miami based four-piece band has been entertaining audiences from the Palm Beaches to the Keys with their humor, good grooves and three part harmonies. firstname.lastname@example.org
