    ADDED SHOW! When country a cappella band Home Free was crowned Season 4 Champions of NBC's The Sing-Off this past December, their victory was by no means the beginnings of a career for the five country stars from Minnesota… rather it was a satisfying culmination of nearly a decade of hard work and commitment to a vocal craft growing in popularity.

    Oliver!

    Paramount Theatre and Visual Arts Center
    March 20-March 22, 2015

    Saint Prep Theatre joins forces with the Saint John’s Boys’ Choir to create a spectacular production of the Broadway musical hit OLIVER! ‘Food glorious Food’, ‘Where is Love’ and ‘I’d Do Anything’ are just some of the wonderful songs from Lionel Bart’s lively, Tony Award winning musical based on Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist.

    “Please sir, I want some more?” Oliver’s innocent request lands him in trouble with the workhouse Matron and the Beadle and sets him on his famous adventure. He is sold to a local undertaker, but runs away and is picked up by the Artful Dodger who invites Oliver to ‘Consider Yourself’ one of us! Fagin’s gang sets out to ‘Pick a Pocket or two’ and take Oliver along, but he is arrested and taken before the magistrates. When he finds Oliver was an innocent bystander, Mr. Brownlow, the victim of the gang, takes Oliver in. One of Fagin’s thieves, Bill Sykes is afraid Oliver will give away their set-up and sends his girlfriend, Nancy to get Oliver back. Eventually Oliver is restored to Mr. Brownlow, who by a million to one chance happens to be his Grandfather.

    February Sky

    February Sky

    Granite City Folk Society
    March 20, 2015

    As far as we’re concerned, we are the ultimate Folk Music act, a living demonstration of the idea that Folk Music is a continuum, uniting songs as young as a few weeks to as old as hundreds of years.

    Phil and I first met in 1983. Phil had already decided that his musical mission was the preservation of English language Traditional music, and his business partner in that endeavor, Margaret Nelson, was a fine Traditional singer. Phil was already well known at that point as a truly gifted guitarist. I, on the other hand, had been playing guitar for only about a year, and wasn’t anywhere near ready to be playing in public. However, I had already decided that my musical mission was to be a songwriter in the Folk tradition, using my considerable facility with words to write story songs and humorous songs reflecting the world around me. At that time, there was a fierce, almost war-like opposition in the Folk scene between the writers of new songs and the singers of old ones, a division that persisted for many years.
