About the Event
Join us Saturday, November 19, for an evening loaded with amazing music from across the state and beyond.
Ned Collette, Berlin, Germany
Ned has long established himself as a songwriter whose literate, evocative songs are paired with music that's both adventurous and eclectic. His early background in improvised and experimental guitar music, combined with a complex narrative lyrical style, has resulted in six albums of uncompromising vision, released on a variety of well-regarded international labels.
His 2018 double album Old Chestnut was released by Feeding Tube Records and was his introduction to a lot of US fans—a deep and complex folk song-cycle featuring musicians such as The Necks’ Chris Abrahams amongst Ned’s regular collaborators. In addition to his song work, he has released works such as 2019’s Afternoon—Dusk, a trio record of long-form experimental instrumental music with James Rushford and Joe Talia. 2022 saw the first ever vinyl reissue of his seminal 2006 debut album, Jokes & Trials, the liner notes for which describe “a rich velvet voice somewhere between fragile youth and aged sage”.
His live performances drift between delicate, intimate folk and sonic explorative jam-outs, both when performing solo or with his band. Over the years Collette has worked or performed with such artists as Joanna Newsom, Cat Power, Bill Callahan, St Vincent, Kurt Vile, and Deerhoof, amongst many others.
Big Trash Big Trash is the guitar song-based solo project of Elisabeth Fuchsia, who has been called "[a] string quartet" by Spin. It sounds like being alone with your thoughts while staring at the ocean, in a comforting way.
Spectator Bird, Harrisonburg, VA Sisters, Rachel and Lindsey FitzGerald, make their home in the mountains of Virginia..Together they’ve hewn out a sound that is at once honest and elegant, sincere and captivating. Weaving sibling harmonies with award winning songwriting to produce a tapestry of sound as ancient and ambient as the hollows themselves.
Caleb Stine Caleb Stine is a singer, guitarist, songwriter, and visual artist. His songs seek to uncover the mysteries of our shared humanity that live just below the surface of everyday experiences. His music has drawn comparisons to Townes Van Zandt and Willie Nelson, but Caleb’s songs are uniquely his own.
Flying just below the mainstream radar, Stine has self-released a dozen albums, opened shows for artists like Jason Isbell, Bombino, and Sam Bush, acted Off-Broadway, and drawn story-boards for John Waters, while dynamically keeping the live shows rolling for fifteen years, ‘Stine’s upfront personality seeking to make a personal connection with everyone in the venue’ (Americana UK) Catch a Caleb Stine performance and you’ll leave inspired.
Tim Westberg (Order, Smart Boys, U.S. Girls, Eat Forever, My Mind, Society Problem, Tickley Feather) has made collaborative and solo music in a variety of configurations over the years. Tim is currently performing a set of mostly "new for 2022" short fun(?)/funny(?) songs.

His most recent albums of solo guitar music, Beautiful Swimmers (20/20 Records and Tapes, 2021), Curtains (20/20 Records and Tapes, 2022), and Changing Always Who Is Waving To Us (Feeding Tube Records, 2020), explore Perry’s improvisational language born out of his earlier albums of classical guitar composition, Witness Tree (Feeding Tube Records, 2019) and S/t (Feeding Tube Records / Good Cry Records, 2018).
