Save to Google calendar  Save to desktop calendar    Friday, September 21, 2018, 8:00 PM


Price: $15 regular, $12 members


May Memorial Unitarian Society
3800 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Kipyn Martin is an Indie Folk singer-songwriter whose roots sink deep into the banks of the Shenandoah River. She's won multiple songwriting awards, was voted one of 3 Most Wanted Emerging Artists at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in 2016, and is someone who John Gorka has described as "a beauty of a singer". Martin will draw you in and delight, and if you close your eyes you just might think that Joni Mitchell has come to sing you a song.

The appeal of Kirsten Maxwell goes well beyond her vocal abilities. She gives everything to her live performances to create a level of intimacy in her performances that welcomes new audiences in like old friends. With a quick wit and commanding stage presence, Kirsten's lyrics will grab you by the heart and pull you in, and her voice will keep you there.

May Memorial Unitarian Society
3800 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

The Black Feathers are an award-winning duo from Gloucestershire, England, by far the farthest away of all the artists we've presented at Folkus. The perfectly paired voices of Ray Hughes and Sian Chandler intertwine effortlessly to create a sound that combines elements of Americana, Folk, and Acoustic Indie Rock.

When it comes to making music, Heather Pierson is a woman of many talents. She's an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, and performer, who speaks the language of music in as many dialects as her abilities allow. From New Orleans style jazz and blues to rousing Americana and poignant folk narratives, her memorable and intimate live performances move seamlessly and effortlessly from one style to the next.

Joined by Davy Sturtevant on dobro, fiddle, mandolin, cornet, banjo and acoustic guitar, and Shawn Nadeau on upright bass, The Heather Pierson Trio treats their audiences to brilliant musicianship, stellar three-part harmonies and earthy charm at every show.

Price: $15 regular, $12 members


May Memorial Unitarian Society

Karen Savoca puts her heart into a song the way a great actor throws herself into a role, charming audiences with her soulful, bluesy voice and her boundless range of expression. A gifted songwriter, she draws you into her world of humor and compassion, telling stories with grace and ease.

Described by an Alaskan reviewer as "the aurora borealis of guitar," Pete Heitzman's transcendent playing is central to their sound. With a broad pallet of tones and textures, he paints ideal landscapes for Savoca's engaging songs. The duo's live performances are uplifting, with a bit of funk in their folk.
