THIS — Saturday, May. 15th at 8:00 pm
Bob Westcott’s 2nd Annual Spring Fling
To celebrate the Spring season, our favorite legendary guitarist and singer-songwriter, Bob Westcott, brings his annual revue of talented performers this May for a second year. Bob will treat us to a couple of bouquets, and then present his showcase of three of the most talented and exciting performers in the Huntington area. !!!

this show featuring
JOSH JOFFEN

Twice a winner of the Kerrville Folk Festival’s legendary “New Songs” songwriter competition, Josh Joffen’s rich vocals are the perfect complement to his virtuoso songwriting. This eloquent and powerful performer can craft deeply profound poetry or playful odes to a Caribbean vacation without missing a beat. With a dozen appearances to his credit, Josh was one of the fabled “Fast Folk” magazine’s most often recorded artists.

MARIA FAIRCHILD

Simply calling Maria Fairchild an old-timey banjo picker is akin to saying Mark O’Connor is just a fiddler. One of the most evocative performers of clawhammer (drop-thumb) banjo in the modern age, Maria brings subtle sophistication to this ancient technique. In her capable hands, her instrument’s voice is rich and mellow, a far cry from the twangy plunk usually associated with old-timey banjo. Add vocals that are clear, warm and pure, and the result is outstanding. Like many other roots musicians, Maria embraces the heart and soul of the Appalachian Mountains and the Celtic Isles. Unlike many other roots musicians, she embraces rock melodies and precise harmonies with equal gusto, giving her instrument a welcome place in the 21st Century. Her new CD Celebration is truly something to celebrate.

PATRICIA SHIH & STEVE FRICKER

Widely recognized for her award-winning children’s music, multi-instrumentalist Patricia Shih occasionally joins forces with her husband, bassist Stephen Fricker, in a thoughtful celebration of modern life. The words are tender and sparkling, and full of humor, depth and emotion, and the music showcases the many flavors of folk.
