About Chad Elliott:

“…Chad Elliott stands out as a timeless and genuine musical poet with supple-strong roots like the bluestem and buffalo grass of Iowa prairie.” –Todd Partridge, NoDepression.com

Chad Elliott bought his first guitar at an Omaha pawn shop, a dreadnought next to the used guns and knives. He took it home, slowly taught himself to fingerpick and began transposing his poetry writing into original songs.  www.chadelliott.net

About Bejae Fleming and Jackie Blount:

“A first-rate songwriter, easily the best lyricist in the state … rich, dynamic … a totally engaging, must-see live performer … a fully realized folksinger at the peak of her power.” (Iowa City Icon)

BeJae Fleming is an energetic and entertaining performer of Southern blues and finely crafted original material. With passionate singing, innovative guitar work and engaging storytelling, she celebrates tribulation and triumph in songs that range from gentle to gritty, from heartfelt to humorous. www.bejaefleming.com

Jackie Blount studied the French horn, receiving her bachelor’s degree in music from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the early 80s. Long inspired by performances of such notable bassists as Jaco Pastorius, Stanley Clark, and Charles Mingus, and more recently by Brian Derek (who played on BeJae’s first CD, Red Cross Woman), she began learning to play the electric bass in the late ’90s and has accompanied BeJae Fleming’s performances since then.

Eric Janoski is a songwriter living in the mountains of Western North Carolina currently working on his next full-length album. His music describes his experiences with this thing called life. Eric draws inspiration from people he can relate to, and the songs come almost exclusively from real-life events. He considers himself to be a songwriter first/foremost, always interested in story telling and more specifically the attempt to tell his story. Eric really feels that seeing someone perform their songs is a big part of the whole package.

Originally from this area and well-known in the Indiana, PA area for his college band days with shows packing the house, we welcome Eric back for an evening of cutting edge, contemporary storytelling through his songwriting and performance.

Many thanks to his father Ed, and Sally Zehmisch for sponsoring this show and introducing us to Mother Explosives.

Special Guest Steve Cohagan is a local favorite of the Harmony area. A singer/songwriter with a strong repertoire of finely crafted songs, we welcome every time we can get Steve off a movie set to come play for us.

Friday, March 28th, 2014, 7:00pm. Admission $10.
