An outdoor mini-festival featuring three Southern gentlemen known for musical wit and profundity, plus DC-area piano-playing favorite Amoreena.

Jefferson Ross is a Georgia-based folk artist who weaves stories for the ears and the eyes. His shows have been likened to a road trip through the South, chock full of sense of place and people, food and history. He previously played with country star Terri Clark and shared stages with George Strait, Toby Keith, Reba McEntire and Vince Gill. He also worked as a Music Row staff writer and an accomplished painter and photographer.

Todd Hoke has never been in a bar fight, but he has provided music for one. Now based in North Carolina, he has an impressive collection of songs about west Texas, late-night conversations with border town prophets, and idyllic summer evenings in the South.

Nick Annis is a Florida-based songwriter who is part itinerant philosopher, part one-man medicine show. There is a natural theatricality to his presentation, in his songs and the spoken interludes between them, that will rivet your attention. And the words of his songs and stories may have you rethink everything you think you know and believe.

Amoreena is a mesmerizing singer-songwriter who seamlessly weaves together history, mystery, and current events in her evocative music. With her captivating vocals and compelling storytelling, she invites listeners to embark on a profound journey through themes such as Robert Frost’s dedication to poetry, the disillusionment of the American dream, and the ethereal voices of the Chelsea Hotel.
