Susan Werner in Key West

Called “one of the most innovative songwriters working today,” (Chicago Tribune), Susan Werner crafts lyrics that are as sharp as thistles, and every bit as funny as they are on point.

SMITHTOWN

In a small Midwestern university town a text message is sent that sets off a chain reaction altering the course of the lives of many who live in Smithtown.

Spend Valentine’s Day swooning along with Key West’s favorite troubadour. Lean into the macabre with selections from “Undying Love”, Harrison’s own musical which recounts the historical tale of Count VonCosel’s infatuation that reached beyond the grave. Not one to linger in the shadows though, Harrison also shares upbeats classics and new songs.

Zoë Lewis

Affectionately known as “a band in a body” Zoë plays vintage jazz and world-beat grooves on anything from piano to the spoons. Known as much for her storytelling as her songs, her performances are upbeat, almost circus-like, yet poignant and oftentimes political. Zoë is an entertainer from a bygone age.

Darrell Scott

After recently touring with Robert Plant and the Zac Brown Band, producing albums for Guy Clark and being named “songwriter of the year” (ASCAP), multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Darrell Scott can now typically be found roaming his Tennessee wilderness acreage, creating meals with food raised on his property and playing music.
