May 11, 2019 - 8pm "With gorgeous close harmonies and unsinkable tunefulness, Emma’s Revolution (the Emma is Goldman) is a classic, globetrotting duo comprised of activist singer/songwriters Sandy O and Pat Humphries. Their music is progressive, socially-conscious and shot-through with intelligence and cutting humor. Newest disc 'Revolutions Per Minute' is a front-to-back gem." ~Iowa City Press-Citizen See the website: emmasrevolution.com NOTE: Tickets $25 online - $30 at the door
April 13, 2019 - 8pm Deeper Than The Skin is the story of our lives in a musical setting. Born three days apart, one of us from the Capital of the Confederacy, the other descended from a Confederate general and a West Indian slave on a plantation just outside of Richmond. Our friendship is an example of what common interests, respect, honesty, and love can overcome. It's a quintessentially American story and needs to be told in these times of division. It is punctuated by the songs we've written about the various turns in our lives. It's an experience. Together they have a unique story. Born three days apart, they discovered well into their 30 years friendship that they both trace their ancestry back to the James River in Richmond, VA, where 300,000 captured Africans were brought ashore. The river brought Reggies ancestors to a plantation in Ashland. With beautifully performed songs and words, they share a compelling story of racial injustice faced down with creative resistance, friendship, music and joy.
March 9, 2019 - 8pm "As a young artist, Terry would fit right in with the songwriters of the 1960s and ’70s. Listening to his music, it’s easy to imagine hearing his songs on the radio in between cuts by Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Jackson Browne and Joni Mitchell."

June 8, 2019 - 8pm Pat Wictor and Deborah Latz first met at an improvisational singing workshop led by Bobby McFerrin, and their musical collaboration is all about spontaneity and surprise. Coming from two different musical realms - he from the acoustic singer-songwriter world, she from the jazz and performance art scenes - they meet over their shared love of melody, poetry, and possibility. Wictor first became known for his slide guitar playing and innovative re-imagining of traditional and contemporary songs. He spent most of the last seven years touring all over North America as one third of the acclaimed harmony-driven trio Brother Sun. New York-based jazz singer, songwriter, arranger, and actress Deborah Latz brings a fresh sound to every performance. She can move from a deep and soulful ballad, to scatting on a bebop tune, to trading fours with a hip hop artist, all the while delighting audiences with her personal warmth and consummate musical skill. This new collaboration promises to evolve in exciting ways as they explore new facets of their artistry.

As one fan puts it, "With Tracy, it's never just about the music; it's a soul journey."
