Description

THE QUITTERS

Stevie Coyle and Glenn Houston make up the dynamic guitar duo The Quitters. Stevie is well-known for his adroit finger-style guitar and quick-as-lightning wit. Glen Houston supplies masterful melodic explorations and mellifluous tones. Together it is a guitar aficionado's dream.

Having each quit some of the best bands in the business, both are founding ?members of The Waybacks and each have performed in many high falutin' performance situations including Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. Stevie has a long and illustrious career as an entertainer that began well before birth and Glenn Houston's well-decorated history in music is best known for his founding role of powerhouse Americana quintet, Houston Jones.

Now they have joined forces, to the delight of California audiences, to become a right-handed, right-side up fingerpicking and left-handed upside down flatpicking twosome. Mostly acoustic, sometimes electric, but always electrifying.

Come join us for an evening of truly transcendent guitar wizardry

LAURA ZUCKER Opens

Singer-songwriter Laura Zucker wins audiences over with a hard-won perspective and a positive spin. The powerful imagery of her songs and stories ring so true you might think she’s read your diary – and you’ll find yourself humming her infectious melodies for days to come. Laura is a “recovering lawyer”, a New Jersey native transplanted in California; Laura returned to music after a 20-year hiatus, and now--she’s a 2 time Kerrville New Folk finalist, 5 time West Coast Songwriters Association Best Song of the Year, a 2013 Official Showcase artist at SWRFA, an Emerging Artist at the 2014 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, with an international following. With four CD releases to her credit, Laura continues to impress with incisive yet sensitive lyrics, evocative melodies and arrangements that cut straight to the heart.
