    She may be best known as the former guitarist and singer-songwriter from string phenom Twisted Pine, but her work as a solo artist shows there's much more to Rachel Sumner that we are just now getting to see. Praised by audiences for her powerful, lonesome voice and haunting songs, Rachel carefully spins melodies that get caught in your head and delivers them “with an attitude and drive in her guitar playing...sure to strike a chord and dig deep into your heart. ” (Red Line Roots)

    Lady Dust - Opening act


    Lady Dust is the accidental side project of Kaitlin Crull, Lindsey Cook, and Emily Cunningham, the more lady-like half of six piece folk group Noble Dust. Blending classical trumpet and cello arrangements with folk sensibility and storytelling, the trio crafts original tunes and reimagines old folk favorites. 

    Open Mic - Open Mic before and after the break. Sign up at the door when we open at 6:30 PM.  No early sign-ups.  You must sign yourself up.  Four 8 minute slots before intermission and two 8 minute slots after intermission.  First come, first served until our slots are full.
