Friday, June 5th 
Mean Mary
8:00 PM @ the Muddy Creek Music Hall in Historic Bethania Mill, 5455 Bethania Rd, W-S  27106 Cover: $12/$10 F&B members
 
This is a welcome return by this talented singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Nashville.  One of six children, Mary began her musical career at a young age, writing her first song before her first day of kindergarten.  By second grade she was appearing on a regional television show called "The Country Boy Eddie Show"  out of Birmingham, Alabama.  Mary began playing music with her brother Frank and they discovered folk music while performing at a living history event.  This music appealed to them more than the commercial country music they were used to.  They quickly became an in-demand act. 
    
In addition to being a fine singer, Mary plays guitar, banjo, and fiddle at a very high level.  Many of her songs have a traditional feel to them and feature strong melodies and lyrics.  Mary's show for Fiddle & Bow two years ago was very well-received and we're delighted to welcome her back.

Joe Crookston
8:00 PM @ the Muddy Creek Music Hall in Historic Bethania Mill, 5455 Bethania Rd, W-S  27106 Cover: $12/$10 F&B members 
 
Joe Crookston has, in a short period of time, become one of the most popular and respected singer/songwriters on the folk scene.  Based in Ithaca, NY, Joe plays guitar, fiddle, and claw-hammer banjo.  At one of his shows you'll ride mystical, humorous, and historical roads, from Brooklyn in July, to Oklahoma towns, through Galway heather, meeting meter maids and drunken roosters.  Multi-Juno (Canadian Grammy) winner David Francey said of Joe's appearance at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, "At every festival I hope to find the gift of one artist whose songwriting and performance stand out.  Joe Crookston was that gift for me this year..."
    
Joe is considered a "master storyteller" and a high energy performer who engages an audience like few can.  In addition to being a talented musician, Joe is also a visual artist as well.  We're really excited about bring this fine performer to our stage for the first time.
