Friday, April 4th
Mike Agranoff
8:00 PM @ the Community Arts Cafe, 411 West 4th St., W-S
Cover: $12/$10 F&B/CAC members

Mike Agranoff is a New Jersey based multi-instrumentalist and singer equally at home with a contemporary song or a traditional one.  He backs himself on guitar, his main instrument, as well as banjo, piano, and concertina.  His finger-style guitar work is considered particularly strong.  Mike calls himself a singer-songfinder rather than a singer-songwriter and likes to find forgotten gems and give them his own unique arrangement and presentation.  As well a being a performer for decades, Mike has also been a driving force in The Folk Project, New Jersey's oldest and strongest folk music organization.  He has served as chairman of that organization's Minstrel Coffeehouse, one of the country's longest lived and most respected folk venues.

Friday, April 18th 
Red June with special guest
Shannon Wurst
8:00 PM @ the Community Arts Cafe, 411 West 4th St., W-S
Cover: $14/$12 F&B/CAC members 

Asheville-based Red June performed for Fiddle & Bow in 2012 to one of the largest audiences we've ever had.  Their strong vocals, songwriting and instrumental work have made them one of North Carolina's premier acoustic bands.   Their music is a mixture of bluegrass, old-time, country and American roots music.  Will Straughan, a local product, provides vocals, dobro, and guitar.  Natalya Weinstein adds fiddle and vocals and John Cloyd Miller contributes mandolin, guitar, and vocals.  They had been friends for years before forming Red June and 2008.  Their first album, "Remember Me Well," was released in 2010 to strong reviews and was followed up in 2012 with "Beauty Will Come."  They are now working on their third album to be released on Organic Records this month.  Red June will also be performing at MerleFest this year. 
   
Opening for Red June will be Shannon Wurst a singer/songwriter from Arkansas who is making quite a name for herself as a musician in the syle of Allison Krauss and Dolly Parton.  Bluegrass Unlimited said of her, "If there's any justice in this musical world, you'll be hearing a lot more of Shannon Wurst."
