Harm’s Way and Mark Stuart perform at AAFFM’s February 21st “FIDDLERS GREEN” COFFEEHOUSE CONCERT The February 21st, 2015 edition of “Fiddlers Green” will present the music of HARM’S WAY, plus the sounds of MARK STUART. The monthly coffeehouse-style concert is presented by Atlanta Area Friends of Folk Music and co-sponsored by and hosted at Steve’s Live Music, 234 Hilderbrand Drive, Sandy Springs, GA. The doors open at 6:00 PM and the show begins at 7:00 PM. It’s only $10 for the general public and $8 for AAFFM members (minimum, greater donations appreciated by the performers). ABOUT HARM'S WAY: Harm’s Way performs with rich harmony, conviction, and a sense of humor. While the group has been together over ten years, some of the members have been performing together all of their adult lives. Their music is influenced by several genres: roots, Americana, folk, blues, and more. Harm’s Way includes Harmon Koetz on guitar and lead vocals, Doug Weiss on lead guitar and vocals, Scot Boze on vocals and Mike Carthon on bass. This acoustic driven group relies on tight harmonies, thoughtful songs and lyrics, and a belief that the music should be shared. These guys have fun performing and can be found at festivals, private events, restaurants, coffee shops, corporate events, and church functions. As with most groups, members occasionally join or leave or re-join the group. But, the core members have been playing music together since before Woodstock. They have fun playing, check their egos at the door, and while they take the music very seriously, don’t take themselves seriously at all! MARK STUART Mark Stuart has been a fixture on the Americana/Folk music scene for seventeen years. Non-stop touring landed the artist in theaters, clubs, radio, television, house concerts, festivals and coffeehouses. Much of this was solo, much of it in a duo "Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart". A fine singer, musician, and songwriter he is. In his performances expect stellar guitar work, soulful vocals, and thought-provoking songs. Interesting stories find their way into his show, too. A career that has repeatedly taken Stuart to Europe, UK, Canada, and 49 of the United States includes having begun in his native Nashville as a teenage working musician. From membership in the Nashville Rebels (his father's band that appeared in the Waylon Jennings movie "The Nashville Rebel") to sideman stints for Steve Earle, Freddy Fender, Joan Baez, and Steve Forbert he has NEVER STOPPED WORKING as an active musical force. In previous years the artist fronted rock/blues bands of his own that included notable guitarists Warren Haynes (Gov't Mule, Allman Brothers Band) and Dave Rawlings (Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings Machine) serving HIM as second guitarist! Mark Stuart celebrated his 50th birthday in January 2015 and is touring as heavily as ever. Audiences will find his usual material from solo CDs and Stacey Earle/Mark Stuart CDs. But, they will also hear a special nod toward the artist Paul McCartney for the calendar year. Mark will expose which of his own songs were influenced by McCartney's style and play Sir Paul’s music in Stuart style. Come and enjoy a great meal at Steve’s while being treated to delightful acoustic performances.
