Mike Agranoff

7: PM Eastern
Mike Agranoff is one of those folk performers who steadfastly defies categorization, yet amasses stalwart fans from folk aficionados of all categories. He draws his material from sources as diverse as traditional ballads and fiddle tunes, Tin Pan Alley, contemporaries in the Folk World and his own witty pen. He delivers it with a skilled hand on guitar, piano and concertina, with an almost telepathic transmittal of the essence of the song and, occasionally, with a sly twinkle in his eye in anticipation of some of the most horrible parodies ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting audience.

Diana Jones

7: PM Eastern
Diana Jones has been called the “Emily Dickinson of song” and “the female Johnny Cash.” She is a magnificent performer, a soul-piercing singer, and a songwriter with more to say in three minutes of song than most people say in an evening. “Songs come in a flurry of inspiration," she says. I don’t understand it but I’m grateful.” A journey of adoption and reunion as mysterious as her songwriting led to the gritty, authentic, Americana storytelling that has become her life’s work and the essence of her live show. Diana’s maternal grandfather, who had formed his first teenage band with a young Chet Atkins, was happy to pass on the culture and music that he loved to his granddaughter. Gradually Jones discovered an uncanny affinity for the Appalachian music of her ancestors and began claiming it as her own as she discovered her true artistic calling.
