Saturday, December 14, 2013: Stacey Earle and Mark Stuart

After a long hiatus, we’re ready to start bringing some great music back to the cabin, and this show is going to be awesome!

Stacey Earle and Mark Stuart met in 1992 and have been partners ever since, stunning guitar work of Mark with the quirky lyrics that paint the stories Stacey tells through song. Though both are fine musicians, performers, and songwriters in their own right, there is just something special to the way they play together.

Both come from musical families. Stacey is sister to Steve Earle, and Mark grew up playing guitar in honky tongs for his dad’s band and touring with Freddie Fender, among others. Stacey and Mark have 5 CDs that they’ve made together, and each has a couple of solo CDs in the catalog as well, adding up to 9 CDs in all.

We’ve seen Stacey and Mark perform in New Harmony on several occasions and we’ve always come away with huge smiles on our faces. It’s one of the most entertaining acts you’ll find on the Folk/Americana music menu.  We’re promising Stacey and Mark a full house for this show, so please make plans to join us! It will be a great opportunity to pick up a couple of stocking stuffers, too!

The performance will start at 8PM, and the doors open at 7PM.  Tickets will be $15, and we’ll start taking reservations about 2 weeks before the show, so keep your eyes on you email box, and if you’re not on our email list, please make sure you subscribe.

Friday, April 12th, Dana and Susan Robinson

We’re thrilled to bring Dana and Susan Robinson to the cabin for their fifth appearance in 10 years. You may have seen them perform locally at New Harmony’s “Arts in Harmony” festival, at the Ferdinand Folk Festival, at the Doss Barn Concert Series, or at one of several other acoustic venues in the area.
In the past decade, Dana and Susan have charmed their way into the ears and CD collections of southern Indiana.Their latest CD, American Hornpipe, is a fantastic recording! I have been enjoying it for months now, and it is by far one of my favorite recordings in the CD collection.
What can you expect at a Dana and Susan Robinson house concert? Masterful guitar work, finely crafted songs delivered with vocal honesty, elegant clawhammer banjo, uniquely styled mandolin, and fiddle that echoes generations of Appalachia. In other words, a great show by performers who constantly strive to deliver their very best.You can learn more about Dana and Susan Robinson on their website at

This show will surely be a sell-out in advance of the booking date, so please be sure to reserve your seats early. The doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 8pm, as always. Seats are $12 and you can pay when you arrive. As always, all proceeds go directly to the performer because this is how they earn their living.

Make sure you are on our mailing list so that you’ll be notified when seat reservations are open!


Saturday, March 9th, 2013 Alan Rhody

Alan Rhody has followed a long and sometimes very solitary path as a singer-songwriter over the past forty years. From his beginnings in Louisville, Kentucky, to living, working and performing across Canada for the first half of the 1970s, where he found his musical calling. Then, at age 31, married with three children, he and his wife Kathy made a leap of faith, returning to the U.S. and Nashville, Tennessee, where he was immediately hailed as a bright new talent, having his songs being covered by a who’s who of country, folk and bluegrass.

Alan tours year-round, playing festivals and other listening venues and conducts songwriting workshops whenever possible. He is also a published poet and award- winning painter. He’s never been big on categories of music, just great songs! Now a nationally recognized writer/artist with a devoted following, he delivers “Led by Love” his ninth album.

The new recording brings Rhody’s writing, playing and singing full-circle with reflections on his own life and his love of country-tinged folk and blues. He also includes a 19th Century war ballad sung a capella and Richard Shindell’s moving Civil War tale, “Arrowhead.” Sam Bush, Mike Henderson, Guthrie Trapp and Jonell Mosser all make very significant contributions.

On past releases, Alan has recorded with greats and longtime friends, John Prine, John Hartford, Maura O’Connell and Gillian Welch partner, David Rawlings. The diverse list of artists who’ve covered his original compositions includes Del McCoury, Kevin Welch, George Jones, David Mallett, The Oak Ridge Boys, Murray McLauchlan, Michael Murphey,Tanya Tucker, Lorrie Morgan, Kamahl, Suzy Boggus, Bjorn Jens, Toby Keith, The Good Brothers, Anne Kirkpatrick and Ricky Van Shelton.

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013 Eunan McIntyre

Usually, if you want to hear Eunan McIntyre, you have to travel to the far northwest regions of Ireland, to County Donegal. Our friend and fellow musician Pat McNulty arranged to bring Eunan over to the USA for a special St. Patrick’s celebration in Indianapolis, and we were invited to host a private show here in Evansville when he arrives here in the USA.

Eunan Mc Intyre is an award winning singer/songwriter from Glencolmkille in Co Donegal, Ireland. Eunan writes about the place he was born, his experiences being part of a big family (he’s one of 16 children), and his love of traditional ballads.

He’s toured in Canada, the United States and Luxembourg and has also played in Spain with Enjoy Travel. He has toured extensively in Switzerland both as a solo musician and supported by the Swiss band “Tacha”. He is best known for his songwriting skills and his warm personality.

Eunan has won numerous song competitions in Ireland, including the All Ireland Traditional Ballad Song Competition. While he is on stage he can reach into the heart of the audience with his Irish humor, and his own songs.
