An Acoustic Brew favorite returns to the Center for Well-Being. Thirty years as a professional songwriter and traveling troubadour serve as credentials. As a solo performer, and as the trusted sidekick of Texas Americana songwriting icon Guy Clark, Verlon has viewed the world from stages everywhere from Barcelona to Binger (his hometown in Oklahoma). Along the way Verlon Thompson compositions have been recorded by Jimmy Buffett and Alan Jackson, Anne Murray, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Del McCoury, Sam Bush, Trisha Yearwood and many more.
David Francey is a Scottish-born Canadian carpenter-turned-songwriter, who the Toronto Star calls "one of Canada’s most revered folk poets and singers." In concert David is a singer and a storyteller. His wry humor and astute observations combined with his open-hearted singing style have earned him a loyal following.
Del Rey started playing guitar when she was four, and the age of fourteen she was introduced to the world of traditional acoustic music. Her guitar playing is influenced by country blues, stride piano, classic jazz and hillbilly boogie-all filtered through the sensibility of an autodidact trailer-park aesthete. She frequently collaborates with fellow blues guitarist Steve James, who performed at Acoustic Brew in 2012.
Her live show is full of complex grooves and sly humor. One review describes it as "Virtuosic in just the right way, which is to say, in order to realize a musical idea. A very nice unlikely blend of things, accessible, slightly nostalgic, but fresh and thoughtful."
Bombastic yet brilliant, these boys from New England exude a genuine musical authenticity and mirth on stages up and down the East Coast. Drawing influences from contemporary urban balladeers, rowdy southern bluegrass, and the sardonic yet wry wit of New England's localized folk scenes, Pesky J. Nixon creates an atmosphere both inviting and challenging for audiences.
Based in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts, The Boxcar Lilies are Jenny Goodspeed, Stephanie Marshall, and Katie Clarke - three singer-songwriters that met and discovered a shared passion for three-part harmony. Accompanying themselves on guitar, clawhammer banjo, concert ukulele, electric bass, and washboard, they have brought their uniquely warm sound and energetic stage presence to venues across the Northeast and beyond.
