Sat, Apr 25, 2015 - Eric Duling Quiet

Local Professor Eric Duling has been playing guitar in Northwest Ohio for the past thirty years, sometimes with bands (most recently, the Black Tie Guys) and sometimes solo.  Among the most influential musicians to form his picking style are James Taylor, Jim Croce, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, John Prine, and George Harrison.  The musical selections are designed to trigger some good memories, put a smile on your face and get your toe tapping. 

Sat, May 2, 2015 - Emily Keener Quiet

At 15 years old, Emily Keener is a young girl with an old soul, and her moving music seems to come from a place of beauty and pure emotion.



She plays her dad’s old-six string acoustic guitar with a folksy, nostalgic groove, and she can fill a room with her unique style. Her shows include her original songs and covers on both the guitar and piano, and every song is lovingly filtered through a passionate voice.



A Book of New Beginnings is Emily’s first full-length album, and it has been in the works since February of 2013. Featuring The Womack Family Band, this all original album captures her lovely, youthful style with every word. Filled with new songs and new sounds, the record is beautiful down to the last second.



Emily started playing the guitar when she was 11 years old and began writing songs when she was almost 12. After writing for almost two years, she has over 60 original songs and has released two EPs in addition to her new LP. 


Sat, May 9, 2015 - Ed Karsnak Quiet


Ed was halfof an acoustic folk duo that started way, way, way back in his college days. He and his partner Tim played extensively for several years in the Youngstown area, playing gigs anywhere they could from Western Pennsylvania to the greater Cleveland area. Career opportunities in the real world sent his partner to Pittsburgh , and Ed eventually landed in Findlay fourteen years ago with his wife and two daughters. As a solo performer, Ed’s music is heavily influenced by his musical heroes James Taylor, Paul Simon, andDan Fogelberg, as well as many other singer/songwriters from the 70’s on up totoday.

Sat, Jun 6, 2015 - Smoking Section Quiet

Sat, Jun 13, 2015 - The Jack Schilb Trio MediumMedium

I will be joined Saturday night by two accomplished musicians. Don Beyer on bass, and Chuck Mauk on drums, who (I think) are one of the best rhythm sections you're likely to hear. We're working on a CD of original tunes which we'll perform, along with a variety of familiar songs. Looking forward to a fun filled evening, hope to see you all there.


A former member of the bluegrass band the “Diamonds in the Rough,” I’ve been playing music in different genres for many years. Beginning with a rock and roll band during high school days, and moving to acoustic folk rock and an emphasis on songwriting throughout the college years. After a middle age hiatus, the past fifteen years have been busy with several musical endeavers.Am currently playing in an acoustic duo with blues harmonica player Dan “Mudfoot” Hubbs, playing occasionally with a group of fellow songwriters from Bowling Green called the “Long Lost Brothers,” working on a jazz / swing trio with an upright bassist and a trumpet player, and of course playing solo gigs.I enjoy trying to cover those songs that are familiar, but not heard that often. The goal being to hear people say, “That’s a great song, I haven’t heard that forever.” Songwriting, however, will always be my first love. and to that end have been writing many things the past few years.

Sat, Jun 20, 2015 - Greg Mahan Quiet

Mahan’s bread-and-butter is elegant, graceful and often poetic Americana music, with songs built around his sturdy acoustic playing nd imagery-laden lyrics. On Daydream, there are some of Mahan’s best ever songs in that style (the minimal title track and the slow-burner, “Fireflies”), but the rest of the album shows that he is not limited to any one specific “genre” when writing. Calypso rhythms imbue “Mento” with a sassy strut, sounding like a weird mesh of Graceland-era Paul Simon and neo-Eastern European revivalists like DeVotchKa, while “Wink ’n’ a Smile” closes the album on a playful, sunny Pop note. Producer Brian Lovely helps achieve a crisp sound that allows the songs to breath and the musicians that flesh out the arrangements (with everything from strings to drums) perform flawlessly. Thirty-Five-Cent Daydream sounds as good as any “Roots” album you’ll hear this year, local or otherwise. Here’s a prediction for ya — local NPR affiliate WNKU is going to play the shit out of this one. Other programmers would be smart to follow suit. -Mike Breen, Cincinnati CityBeat

Sat, Jun 27, 2015 - Free Wild Quiet


 Free Wild performs original high energy acoustic music. The group consists of Martin Koop and Steve Wilson as its core. They are frequently joined by other skilled vagabond acoustic musicians. Known for crowd pleasing original songs, Funcoast magazine called Koop "proof that folk music is alive and well." Koop cut his teeth on Sixth Street in Austin, Texas, playing on the street and in the folk clubs and he later honed his craft in the songwriting enclaves of Nashville, Tennessee writing tuneful, soulful, witty songs. Steve Wilson has been with Free Wild since it was born and provides harmonica, percussion, vocals, sanity, wisdom and backup batteries.


Sat, Jul 4, 2015 - CLOSED July 4th Quiet


Sat, Jul 11, 2015 - Chris Spradlin Quiet

I've been singing and playing for over 20 years. Started in High School. Playing in small bands and then moving into playing in a working rock band, Myriah. We played throughout Northwest Ohio. Moved onto playing in a Christian Rock band. Then as a recording artist for 5th Dimension records, with my one man outfit Dementia 13. It was a clash of styles, incorporating performance art and musical genres like metal, industrial, minimalist electronica, space rock and noise. I dubbed the style Art Noise Terrorism, or Anti-rock, or Neo-Tokyo Jazz, depending on the situation. After a brief stint in numerous other projects, I finally decided that solo performance was the way to go. I have been playing solo acoustic rock for about 10 years now. I also still record music. Have been listed in the linux journal as a performance artist and in numerous music rags for my recorded music and live performances. In 2003 I composed the original electronic music for the Fort Findlay Playhouse production of Ken Kesey's 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'. Hailed, for it's bizzare and cutting take on insanity, by the former President of the Gem Theatre in Detroit.

Sat, Jul 18, 2015 - Rj Cowdery Quiet



Local Columbus singer/songwriter Rj Cowdery has been singing and writing songs since she was a teenager. This labor of love — from playing open mics to opening for Mary Chapin Carpenter and Shawn Colvin at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival many years later — paid off when Rj won the coveted Mountain Stage NewSong Contest in September, 2007.   

The Mountain Stage NewSong Contest showcased 12 musicians who were finalists in an intensive summer-long competition made up of live regional rounds held across North America. Hundreds of aspiring singer-songwriters submitted and performed their original songs. Columbus Ohio’s Rj Cowdery was one of five co-winners selected at the River to River Festival in New York City. To see the rest of the winners and hear their talent, visit www.newsongfestival.com

Rj Cowdery has been influenced by some of the great musical story tellers of our time; from Nancy Griffith, Carol King, The Carpenters and John Denver to Jackson Browne, Jim Croce and Neil Young…to name a few. In 1995, Cowdery wrote and recorded "Bernie's Daughter" and developed a strong regional fan base.  She also contributed a cut to the “ripe!” compilation made up of singer/songwriters from the Columbus, Ohio area. Cowdery's latest effort, "One More Door" was released in February, 2008."One More Door" was recorded live in Parkersburg, West Virginia with Michael Lipton and Ammed Solomon from National Public Radio’s Mountain Stage Band and Don Dixon, legendary producer of REM and Marshall Crenshaw.  West Virginia singer-songwriter icon Todd Burge produced the album.
