AUG. 27       DEBRA COWAN.  Debra Cowan is a singer and interpreter of great songs, old and new.  Some of her songs are centuries old, some were written yesterday.  Songs with excellent choruses.  She’s got a good sense of humor, and is just a delightful performer.  A fine way to start our 51st year.


SEPT.3         LARRY KAPLAN.  Larry Kaplan writes songs that other people sing and record, and many of them don’t know where they come from.  Larry Kaplan is a hero, a writer of strong songs that travel before him.  He’s both laid back and charming, and his first Bound for Glory performance will be a very special show.


SEPT.  10     BROTHER SUN.  Alas, it’s the last Bound for Glory for this wonderful folk trio. Pat Wictor, Joe Jencks, and Greg Greenway have taken the folk world by storm.  This is one of their last shows as a trio, and let’s enjoy their magic.  We can sing with them, and we can share their excellent songwriting, and amazing playing, too.


SEPT. 17      PINT AND DALE.  It’s been decades since William Pint and Felicia Dale have been on Bound for Glory.  They come from Washington State, and are very seldom in this area.  Many of their songs are traditional songs of the sea, done with skill and fantastic energy.


SEPT. 24       CLAUDIA SCHMIDT.  She’ll leave you with a smile.  Claudia Schmidt, from Michigan, is a writer of tremendous flexibility.  She writes about just about everything, with a wry sense of humor, and an ability to talk right to you.  We’re so very pleased to have her back on Bound for Glory.


OCT. 1           RICK SHEA.  We’ve been trying to get a date together for Rick Shea for several years, and he’s coming to do his first live Bound for Glory.  Rick is from California, and his songs reflect the rural world that he lives in.  He passes along not the intense urban part of California, but the realities connected to the rest of the state.
