David Schindele
David presents a program of mostly original contemporary adult acoustic music; piano poetry headed for the heart.  He will be joined by Jen Logueflower, formerly of the Bill of Rights Band, so this will be a rare chance to hear two keyboards playing in harmony.  The harmony will extend to the vocals as well.  Check daveschindele.com for more info and samples of David’s music.

Dangerous Folk
“Blowing in the Wind" is a sing-along concert of those favorite songs that many of us remember from the 60s. From the days of “Make Love, Not War”, the best of love songs and peace songs remind us of the powerful anthems and “dangerous songs” from when the times they were a’ changing - songs that once again resonate for today’s world. Veteran folk singers David HB Drake, Julie Thompson, and Cap Lee lead those good old songs we grew up on. More info is found at: www.dangerousfolk.com

Bowen Marvik
Bowen’s background is classical music and he discovered the guitar rather late in life. We’re glad he did. The Hog is Bowen’s favorite venue and it shows in his heartfelt original compositions and interpretations of folk, classical and new age pieces. This is his first Hog date in a year so come and help welcome him back.

Mad Folk Event

SPECIAL EVENT
in partnership with the Madison Folk Music Society

Admission:

Vance Gilbert
photoVance burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early '90s when the buzz started spreading in the folk clubs of Boston about an ex-multicultural arts teacher and jazz singer who was knocking 'em dead at open mikes. The word spread of this Philadelphia-area born and raised performer to New York; Shawn Colvin invited Vance Gilbert to be a special guest on her Fat City tour. Gilbert took audiences across the country by storm.

Gilbert is currently promoting his ninth release, which he describes as follows:
"...All I wanted to do was write as if I was someone else. I was in no way out to imitate the various songwriters that I allude to in the notes before each song. I was more shooting for a sense or a 'vibe' in the lyrics and music that was reminiscent, to my mind, of these various artists. Sometimes that sense was inadvertent, occurring to me when the song was half written. Other times I purposely tried to 'write like that..' More than anything else, this stretch of 'writing as someone else' has been one of the most inspirational and notebook-filling exercises I've done to myself since my days of writing children's theatre."
