8:00 :: Eloquent Stranger

Rick Kearney, John Noack and Becky Marvel merge their distinct talents into a sound best described as a unique blend of timeless Folk, Americana and Acoustic Rock plus their own original music that weaves harmony and lyrics into life. Mixed with smooth rhythm and lead guitar, mandolin and banjo all blended with 3 part vocal harmony makes "Eloquent Stranger" a band you won't to miss.



9:00 :: Billy Gewin

Multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, Billy Gewin has been making music in the Atlanta area for the last 15 years.

As the clich goes, after the usual stint with cover bands and supporting roles playing other writers' music, a girlfriend encouraged him to pursue his own writing, with a specific goal of publishing a CD of his own material. Billy has since met that challenge three times with no sign of slowing down.

Billy prefers to align himself with artists who have spent most of their careers challenging the mainstream: songwriters/composers like Shawn Colvin, Billy Bragg, Elvis Costello, Ben Folds, Paul Westerberg and George Gershwin; and groups like U2, Steely Dan, Cold Play, and Wilco.

The first thing you notice about Billy's songwriting is his unselfconscious and honest lyrics. Next is the range of accessible melodies and cascading harmonies that aren't afraid to start below the staff and work their way well above and back down again. Lastly, this is not music for the lowest common denominator.
