6/5 – Sharif (Trio)
Sharif—who is currently earning his Masters at the Berklee College of Music—has made quite a name for himself on the touring front as well, vacillating from playing intimate solo acoustic shows of his original material to belting out cover tunes (from Rihanna’s “Disturbia” to Maroon 5’s “Won’t Go Home Without You” to Beastie Boys “Girls”) at biker bars to playing one of his favorite genres of music, oldies, at retirement centers (because he wants to, not because he has to) to corporate gigs for Gap and Amstel Light to opening for the likes of Jason Mraz, Kenny Loggins, Rhett Miller, Rusted Root, and Blake Shelton. sharifmusic.com

6/12 – Delta Junction
Delta Junction hails from Crozet, VA. With a solid foundation in stripped-down blues from the Mississippi delta, Delta Junction breathes new life into traditional arrangements, adding funk, soul, and rock in equal measure.

Altogether this acoustic blues trio cooks up funky tunes that are sure to bring you to your feet. Their live show is not to be missed! deltajunctionband.com

The duo features the combined talents of Brad Marshall on lead, rhythm, and slide guitar and Kevin Artz on rhythm and fingerstyle guitar, vocals and harmonica. Brad’s background in rock and blues meets with Kevin’s background in folk, folk-rock and bluegrass to create an original and dynamic acoustic sound. Their performances blend two guitars into a rhythmic and melodic mix that suggests a full band rather than just two guitars. marshallartz.net/home

7/17 – Jon Spear Band
The Jon Spear Band can be adventurous in its musical tastes but never strays very far from its blues roots which provide the foundation for the band’s music. Nominated by Blues Blast Magazine for the prestigious best Live Blues Recording of 2016 award, all three of the Jon Spear Band’s CDs have charted in the US, France, UK, Spain, and Australia and have been listed on the annual top 100 Roots Music Report Contemporary Blues Chart for the past three consecutive years.

7/24 – Paulo Franco & the Freightliners
Paulo’s songs are steeped in storytelling, often drawing from his own life and those around him. The sound is a seamless blend of the myriad of influences that have shaped both his everyday life and his musical tastes. Listeners will find glimpses of the eclectic style of Los Lobos, Robert Earl Keen’s storytelling, John Prine’s wit, The Stones’ rock n roll heart, and the fluidity of The Grateful Dead often times infused with the rhythms of traditional Latin and Colombian music. He has recently included original Spanish songs into his songwriting, bringing a depth and a love of two cultures seldom seen during the same show or album. Paulo switches his voice from country twang, to rock anthem, to Spanish troubadour with ease. His vocals are so authentically Spanish that it’s easy to forget you just heard him effortlessly sing a country tune in English. peflmusic.com
