May Memorial UU Society

It’s been 15 years since Rod Picott laid down his work belt and picked up an acoustic guitar. Rod spins stories of hard work, heartache and the human condition “with a voice that is seductive and breathy, a la Leonard Cohen. There’s also a ramshackle quirkiness in some of the arrangements that is somewhat reminiscent of Tom Waits.” (Journal of Roots Music – August 2015)

May Memorial UU Society

Cliff has run the musical gamut from being a founding member of the Fast Folk Music Cooperative of New York City in the 1980s, to garnering the Helen Hayes award for Best Sound Design for writing and performing music to The Taming of the Shrew at the Folger Theatre in Washington, D.C. (2013).

His expressive voice and dynamic guitar style make for some of the most moving “new folk” music, drawing from rock, pop and the best folk ballad styles, with a keen sense of wit mixed in.

Louise adds her soulful Southern folk to the evening. A singer songwriter in her own right described as “Faulkner with a guitar” (folk DJ, Rich Warren), Louise has garnered much attention and accolades in recent years, winning top awards at the Kerrville Folk Festival and Falcon Ridge Folk Festival.

Guy Davis

When Guy Davis plays the blues, he doesn’t want you to notice how much art is involved. He’s played the four corners of the world earning acclaim for his deft acoustic playing, his well-traveled voice and his literate, yet highly accessible songwriting. His parallel careers– as a musician, an author, a music teacher and a film, television and Broadway actor—mark Davis as a Renaissance man, yet the blues remain his first and greatest love.
