Upcoming House Concert Events

Sunday, 2/16/14 - Jon Vezner
06:00PM

Jon Vezner

Grammy award-winning songwriter, Nashville based, Jon Vezner is a tunesmith of rare sensitivity and dry wit. His catalogue of recorded songs, topped by the poignant "Where've You Been," reflects his straight-to-the heart sensibility and emotional awareness. Vezner weaves the particulars of his own feelings with the lives of people he has known into universal themes that deeply touch listeners' emotions.


Vezner was honored with a Grammy for "Best Country Song" and the Nashville Songwriters Association "Song of the Year" in 1990, for "Where've You Been", the true story of Vezner's grandparents, co-written with Don Henry, and recorded by Kathy Mattea. "Where've You Been" was also honored as "Song of the Year" by the Country Music Association (CMA) and the Academy of Country Music (ACM).


"In simple, understated language, Jon draws us into the drama and tension of the moment. Then, just when he's got us on the edge of our emotional seats, he goes, literally, straight to the heart of the matter, asking an impossibly difficult question that only we, the listener, can answer." – Si Kahn

Sunday, 3/9/14 - John Flynn
06:00PM

John Flynn

In an era of deep division, John Flynn's songs call us together as they speak for the wounded, the weary, and the afflicted; for the prisoner, the soldier, and all the forgotten ones who walk unseen in our midst. Fusing the vision of an activist with the unblinking eye of a truth-teller, John Flynn's music speaks deeply to the heart and the spirit. A wordsmith and poet of rare clarity, he evokes our shared humanity as he addresses the times we live in through songs that resound with awareness, irony, humor and compassion.


The open heartedness and resonant decency in Flynn's work have made him a staple of Phil Ochs Song Nights across the country, and brought him the respect and friendship of longtime heroes like Kris Kristofferson and Arlo Guthrie. Sally Millbury Steen of Pacem in Terris calls John Flynn "A troubadour of justice, mercy and hope."

Sunday, 4/6/14 - Michael Reno Harrell
06:00PM

Michael Reno Harrell

Reno Harrell will visit us for the first time. Michael Reno Harrell is an award winning songwriter, as well as a veteran storyteller and entertainer, and he's from the South… the Southern Appalachian Mountains to hone it a bit finer. One could compare Michael's performances to his granddaddy's pocket knife: well warn and familiar feeling, but razor sharp and with a point.


Michael's recordings top the Americana Music Association charts year after year. Having toured throughout the British Isles and much of Europe, as well as most of the US, the songs he writes and the stories he creates reflect an insight into people's experiences that catch the ear like an old friend's voice.


Michael's natural knack for storytelling, in print, song and spoken word has earned him praise from not only the music community but from the literary and storytelling worlds as well, having had the honor of being a Featured Teller at the National Storytelling Festival and to be Teller In Residence at the International Storytelling Center, as well as performing at major music events like MerleFest and the Walnut Valley Festival.


Don't miss the chance to experience what those faithful fans keep returning again and again to enjoy.
