11:00 to 2:00 MERCY CREEK
Based in Virginia, Mercy Creek performs original music they call aggressive folk rock. Singer/guitarist Cheryl Nystrom and song writing partner/drummer Jim Ball combine elements of modern folk, world beat, rock, and hints of blues and bluegrass to create music that is fresh and unique. From world beat to folk, the musical styles used in Mercy Creek's songs are anchored by Nystrom's beautiful voice and intelligent lyrics.
2:30 - 5:00 LITTLE DOORS
The mid-twentieth century was a great era for the popular song. The golden age of movie musicals brought us classics like “Over the Rainbow” and “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off.” At the same time, the sophisticated jazzy tunes of Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and many more captivated listeners. A few years later, great artists like Etta James, Dionne Warwick, and Stevie Wonder brought us one gem of a song after another, each one woven into the fabric of the lives of all who lived through those dynamic times. Little Doors is a musical group that wanders through this seemingly endless canon of great songs, gathering tunes like shells on the beach and taking them home to enjoy again and again.
