“Late to Bat, But Hits Another Home Run” said No Depression magazine of New York singer-songwriter Roger Street Friedman after the release of his second album at the age of 54. The roots rocker, whose third album is expected late this year, sings about the joys and challenges of life, resonating with audiences of all ages. “One minute he’s turning out harmonically rich Paul Simon-esque art-folk; the next he’s digging into the kind of good 'n' greasy Americana groove John Hiatt would kill for.”-Jim Allen, CultureSonar.
Annapolis-based act Kings of Crownsville are a roots Rock band with a New Orleans flavor. The brainchild of New Orleans-raised guitarist/singer/songwriterSteve Johnson, the Kings play a rollicking, entertaining set that stirs Americana, Blues, and Jazz into the mix.
Their signature horn section transports listeners to the streets of the Big Easy, while they also add precise three- and four-part harmonies to their musical gumbo. Think Louis Armstrong meets Steely Dan.

At the crossroads of blues and American roots music you’ll find Brooks Williams. “Setting new standards and a fresh direction for the blues,” says Blues In Britain, and creating a “beautiful fusion” (Keys And Chords). Just when you think he can’t sing a blues-ier note, he sings it. Just when you think he can’t strum a deeper groove, he strums it.
Join the dynamic cabaret duo of Jennifer Blades and John Bowen for a musical letter to the North Pole's most famous resident.
