8:00 :: Redwine Jam

Despite its name, Redwine Jam is not a sweet alcoholic concoction suitable for spreading on toast. Still, folk music fans around Atlanta find it appetizing and heady!

Redwine Jam is a musical act consisting of Chris and Carol Moser, sometimes joined by musically gifted friends. Chris and Carol are veteran musicians best known in recent years for leading the Celtic music band Barney's Goat. As Redwine Jam they offer an eclectic mix of North American and Celtic folk music, both traditional and contemporary. They play a wide array of instruments including guitar, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, pennywhistle, flute, recorder, mountain dulcimer, and bodhran (Celtic drum).

A Redwine Jam performance can carry the audience on an emotional rollercoaster complete with high-spirited roots music, wry humor, gripping story songs, love ballads, and the sheer joy of homemade music. Whether performing as a duo or with other musicians who add their own spices to the mix, Chris and Carol make an evening with Redwine Jam a delectable treat.

9:00 :: Benson and Leinweber

Benson and Leinweber have been wowing crowds wherever they have played.

They are the duo made up of Dave Benson and David Leinweber, two outstanding guitarists, songwriters, and performers. Veterans of the blues, rock and folk scenes, the two form a powerhouse duo featuring excellent harmonies, skillful guitar-interplay and well-selected songs – not to mention lots of fun and energy.

David Leinweber has performed widely at festivals, concert venues and clubs for years, including international appearances abroad where he was dubbed “The Flatpicking Professor.” He has also performed widely in refined higher-educational settings like bars and honky-tonks, to say nothing of numerous universities, civic groups and college campuses. He has placed in numerous flatpicking, fingerpicking and songwriting competitions.

Benson is also an award-winning songwriter, with many years of experience as a versatile guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and performer. He has appeared in performance venues all over his native South.

The duo's repertoire ranges from traditional music of Appalachia and the British Isles, to Spanish ballads, to folkadelic rock and acoustic blues. Critics have praised their work with such phrases as “excellent guitarists,” “Masters of the flatpicking and fingerpicking styles of guitar,” and “great picking combined with good songwriting; what more could you ask?”

Many of their songs tell great stories and feature distinctive idioms of guitar-playing and songwriting. But most of all, they are just out to entertain and have a good time. Their performances intersperse intricate guitar work and vocals with joke-cracking and occasional commentaries. They are a good fit for audiences of all stripes and tastes.
