Our Upcoming Shows:
April 20, 2018
Annalise Emerick, a self-starting, twenty-something, singer-songwriter has been on the road virtually non-stop for six years. Choosing to leave behind any semblance of a normal life for the day-to-day of a traveling independent musician was always a no-brainer for the Nashville spitfire. In 2011, Emerick released her first project, Starry-Eyed, to heavy critical acclaim after it debuted at #9 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart. Three years after the release of her first EP, Emerick returned with Field Notes, a folk-inspired, markedly more mature turn for the singer that demonstrated just how much her endless days on the road and years of hard work fostered her growth as an artist and performer. With Field Notes, Emerick has situated herself among fans of Brandi Carlile, Patty Griffin, and Eva Cassidy alike.
Emerick has toured extensively all over the US, playing 150+ shows every year. In 2015, Emerick won the Wildflower Festival singer/songwriter contest in Richardson, Texas, opened for Gregory Alan Isakov at a sold out show at the Ogden Theatre in Denver, Colorado and completed a European tour. A native of Austin, Texas, Emerick was thrilled to be selected as a 2016 Kerrville New Folk Finalist.
Emerick will be on tour throughout the US and Europe in 2017 and will be releasing, The Right Heart EP, a collection of love songs, on May 5th, 2017.
When she's not on the road, you can find Annalise catching up on her book club reading, hanging out with her husband, and writing new songs at their home in Nashville.

Alex Smith grew up in Long Lake, in the heart of New York's Adirondack Park, and his music strives first and foremost to echo the people of that area. He builds songs from a blend of traditional folk harmony and strikingly modern lyrics, confronting today's most pressing issues with grace while paying homage to the masters who came before him.
"Alex is a wonderful poetic writer who captures words full of meaning, matching them with creative music that creeps quietly into the past at the same time as dancing with the present, and sneaking a peek at the future." - Bob Everhart: Country Music News International

A British-American ensemble formed in Oxford (UK), roots revival band Floyds Row explores early, folk, and classical idioms on an array of modern and period instruments. Fusing a variety of styles, Floyds Row repertoire includes both original material and pieces pulled from the early British folk tradition and English Renaissance.
"A mix of Purcell and Bob Dylan played on various instruments, including an accordion and a viola da gamba. Kinda crazy, but it works." David Rabin, WPFW Radio
"No two shows are alike, but the performances guarantee an eclectic mix of traditional pieces from composers of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, covers from modern folk singers such as Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, and the Grateful Dead, as well as original compositions that pull from the meld of the traditional and the classical." Dominique Agnew, North Potomac Times
