Sorry, this event has SOLD OUT.
Craig Bickhardt is a folk/Americana performing songwriter with major writing credits, a poet’s voice, a virtuoso guitar style and a veteran’s experience. He is the uniting force behind this critically-acclaimed In-The-Round series at venues throughout the country. Craig composed three # 1 Billboard hits and nine top-10 ten hits, and has shared the stage with Bruce Springsteen, Stephen Stills, Judy Collins, Hank Williams Jr., Kathy Mattea, and others. Craig's songs have found their way onto platinum and Grammy-winning recordings by legends such as Johnny Cash, Martina McBride, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles, B.B. King, Kathy Mattea and Alison Krauss. His voice and songs can be heard in the Academy Award-winning film "Tender Mercies", starring Robert Duvall.
Thom Schuyler was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2011. His songs have been recorded by more than 200 artists including American Music Awards Song Of The Year "Love Will Turn You Around" by Kenny Rogers, and "Long Line of Love" by Michael Martin Murphy. His literary lyrical sense and storytelling skills shine in songs like "My Old Yellow Car" and "Sixteenth Avenue," the unofficial anthem of Music Row's songwriting community. Thom has been a solo recording artist and a member of the trios S-K-O (Schuyler, Knobloch & Overstreet) and SKB (Schuyler, Knobloch & Bickhardt).
Sylvia has released five albums with a dozen #1 and Top Ten hits, sold over four million records, and won multiple awards including the Academy of Country Music’s Female Vocalist of the Year and Billboard’s #1 Country Female Artist. Her biggest hit, a crossover chart topper, was her single "Nobody" in 1982.
John Mock has arranged songs, strings, and woodwinds for Kathy Mattea, October Project, Michael W. Smith and Dixie Chicks. He has 2 solo albums, and has recorded and performed with a number of prominent artists, including the Dixie Chicks, Dolly Parton, Kathy Mattea, Michael W. Smith, Martina McBride, and Sara Evans.
You will be moved by all four performers, knocked out by their musicianship, and entertained by the wonderful, often hilarious stories they tell about their songs and careers. This show promises to be as good as it gets! All are welcome!
The doors will open at 6:30 PM and the concert will begin at 7 PM. Admission to the concert is free, but a free-will offering of $20 is recommended.
