"Musically right on the mark! Irresistible rock, gentle introspection, variety, wit, and killer hooks", Ellen Geisel, Dirty Linen magazine. Find out more about Bob at his website: www.bob-warren.com.
Deb Cavanaugh, the recipient of a "Meet the Composers" grant, was recently a semi-finalist in the annual national JPFolks lyric contest. Deb performs at venues such as Caffè Lena and other coffeehouses in the greater Albany area and teaches songwriting workshops for young people at various summer camps, libraries and schools.

Living in Southern VT for over 15 years, Greg brings his brand of Americana and folk-rock to small venues in the area with occasional forays into the greater Northeast region.

It was truly an honor to be a part of this event. It was a wonderful opportunity to think about my songs and songwriting in a different light. Thanks to Ferrilyn and Scott for hosting.
