2019 Schedule

  • June 27 – Chris Cain
  • July 11 – Tumbledown House
  • July 25 – Tom Rigney and Flambeau
  • August 1 – The Big Jangle

Chris Cain’s jazz-tinged, blues soaked guitar and deep, warm vocals have the maturity and authenticity of bluesmen many years his senior. His expressive style is the result of a lifetime of study and the relentless pursuit of music mastery. His passion and intensity are a blend of his mother’s Greek ancestry and his father’s soulful black heritage.
