For The Sake of The Song : Duane Mark

Sunday - January, 27 @ 5:00pm

Inspired by the late, great Townes Van Zant, songwriters come together for this monthly showcase to enjoy each other's music. The rest of us are just there to listen, have all the feels, and applaud when appropriate. Artists will bring a mix of Americana music featuring bluegrass, folk, classic country, and blues sometimes tinged with the punk and metal backgrounds of some of the performers. Loosely grouped under what's come to be known as Americana music, the common thread to these performances is original songwriting and storytelling. There will normally be two full sets by a mix of local and touring acts, as well as individual performances before, between and maybe after the two headlining acts. These will often be new, recently written songs by engaging songwriters putting their heart into the moment.
January features DUANE MARK with Joel Thetford, Shamus Alley, and Jared McCloud
