The season opener on Saturday, October 26 at Ellison’s Cafe Acoustic Unplugged Sessions will feature three touring acts from the coast starting at noon.

What happens when you meld a classically trained pianist and vocalist, a bi-lingual songwriter, a guitarist, and a dancer into one person on stage? Glenna Garramone, whose unique approach was recognized when she earned the Grand prize in the 2010 Artswells Songwriting Contest.

Glenna will also perform Tower of Song: a creative tribute to Leonard Cohen with Oliver Swain at The Booksmyth Underground that evening.

Familiar Wild plays alternative folk music thick with orchestral arrangements and subtly poetic lyrics. Their nuanced chord progressions, quirky rhythms and floating melodies create a unique listening experience. There will be banjo, violin, guitar, and piano plus three voices.

Since in 2006, the T. Nile band has toured their sweet harmonies, vintage synths, banjo riffs, and infectious melodies throughout North America and Europe to sold-out shows. Named Best New Artist at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, Familiar Wild and T. Nile will also perform a house concert Friday, October 25. For details contact Rob Switzer, robswi@gmail.com.
