Of Krista’s newest CD “Barely,” Gretchen Peters, Grammy-winning songwriter says, “…cannot stop listening to new album….  As deep and full of secrets as the sea.  Go get this record now.  Wow.”

Amanda’s new solo CD is a confluence of many things — her operatically trained voice and her finely-tuned sensibilities of the folk/blues/pop that is often called Americana music…combined with a healthy does of the synchronicity and magic that happens in a true work of art.

Put these two together on a stage this time of year, and you get Krista and Amanda collaborating as Parvenu and presenting a “lusty Valentine Cabaret.”

Call 618-893-2233 for dinner reservations at The Yellow Moon Café.

SMALL POTATOES – 8pm Friday 12/18 @ Yellow Moon Café in Cobden

smallpotatoes2The Chicago based folk duo of Jacquie Manning and Rich Prezioso say it has taken them years of careful indecision to develop a repertoire they describe as “Celtic to Cowboy.” Superb musicianship and showmanship, award-winning songwriting, and a strong sense of tradition has made them, as Dirty Linen Magazine once said, “one of the most polished, inventive, and entertaining shows on the circuit.”

Tiny Tubers?  Negligible Nightshades?  No matter what you like to call them, you have to put Small Potatoes at the top of the Cousin Andy’s favorites list.  Jacquie and Rich return to the Cousin Andy’s stage at The Yellow Moon Café for their annual Christmas and more show.

BERNICE LEWIS – Friday, December 4th, 7:30pm – Church of the Good Shepherd Fellowship Hall

bernice2With almost four decades of performing festivals, concert halls, coffeehouses, colleges, and house concerts, along with a half dozen acclaimed CDs, Bernice Lewis has built a solid national fan base. She is also a published poet, a producer, and an educator extraordinaire. Lewis — who studied vocal improvisation with Bobby McFerrin, guitar technique with Alex DeGrassi and Guy van Duser, and songwriting with Rosanne Cash and Cris Williamson — has been a featured performer on NPR’s Mountain Stage program, as well as at the Kennedy Center.  She has shared the stage with many renowned artists, including Dar Williams, Dixie Chicks, Patty Griffin, Pete Seeger, Ellis Paul, Rory Block, Livingston Taylor, Odetta, Christine Lavin, Marty Sexton, Patty Larkin, Catie Curtis, Mary Gauthier….

“For me, it’s about the songs, each different, each a well thought out message, each a labor of love,” says Bernice.

“Bernice is a voice full of light and hope. She is one of the keepers of the flame of Real Songwriting.”
– Rosanne Cash

AMY KUCHARIK – Friday, 11/20, 8pm @ Yellow Moon Café in Cobden

AmyK

Cousin Andy’s welcomes Amy Kucharik home for a return engagement on the Cousin Andy’s stage.  This week’s show will be down at The Yellow Moon Café in Cobden.

2015 Kerrville Grassy Hill New Folk winner Amy Kucharik applies the sweet, innocent tones of her ukulele to the (sometimes) dark humor of her wit with an infectious, danceable swing. Amy released her debut full-length CD in 2014, with tunes inspired by vintage jazz/blues in the vein of the Asylum Street Spankers, with sassy lyrics reminiscent of the Lake Street Dive or early blueswomen like Sippie Wallace, and vocals that recall Lena Horne or Maria Muldaur.

RICK DROIT Friday, November 6th, 7:30pm – Church of The Good Shepherd Fellowship Hall

RickDroit“The Songs show a unique and compelling combination, full of positivism that isn’t grating, reminiscent of early Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and Santana.”  — Chris Wissman, The Carbondale Nightlife

Rick grew up traveling from a young age, from the old red barns and fishing holes along the Mississippi River basin near Southern Illinois to the red dirt and Pineywoods of East Texas.  He has performed his unique style of American music across the U.S. at music festivals, coffee shops, colleges, clubs & other venues, vividly blending Acoustic Texas Blues, Folk Rock, Indie Pop and Americana arriving at style all his own.

We welcome Rick back home to the Cousin Andy’s stage on Friday, November 6th.

FORT DEFIANCE Friday 10/23 8pm @ The Yellow Moon Café in Cobden

Please bear with us while we get the website functioning again.

Sometimes upgrading creates a lot of extra work.

“I’m a sucker for story songs.  They hook you from the beginning and touch you on an emotional level, whether their theme is murder, mayhem, despair, broken hearts, lost loves or wild adventure.  Nashville based indie-folk trio Fort Defiance has included one of the most epic story songs I’ve heard in years on their debut album Worry Has No Home.  …Worry Has No Home weaves beautifully written ballads with toe-tapping tunes and great harmonies into nine tracks that anyone with an appreciation of artists such as Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan or The Civil Wars should immediately add to their music library.  …With themes of fears and worries, loneliness and redemption, Worry Has No Home is compelling, exciting and breathtakingly seductive.”  — Jane Roser for THAT MAG (www.thatmusicmag.com)

Fort Defiance is Jordan Eastman (vocals, guitar, harmonica, bass, banjo, percussion and bells) and Laurel Lane (vocals, banjo and ukulele).
