May Cheung, 12:30pm

Brooklyn-based Canadian Singer-songwriter May Cheung has been active in the New York music scene for the past 9 years. Having imbibed a wide spectrum of music since she was a young child, May draws upon elements of jazz, pop, folk and indie-rock in her songwriting; attributing her influences to the likes of Neil Young, Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone, Feist and Rufus Wainright. May has played in such highly-touted venues as Hotel Cafe, Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2, The Living Room, The Bitter End, Caffé Vivaldi, Pianos, Drom, and Sidewalk Cafe, just to name a few. Her debut album 'The Departure' has been described as “stunning from start to finish” by Huffpost. It was produced (and features the guitar work of) Nir Felder, mixed by The Shins’ Yuuki Matthews, and mastered by Grammy Award-Winner Chris Gehringer (Katy Perry). ‘The Departure’ is available now on iTunes, Spotify and Bandcamp.

Jasper Lewis, 2:40pm

Mississippi Cotten, 3:05pm

Mississippi Cotten offers up a mix of upbeat and bittersweet songs that pull from the deep roots of American folk music. While respecting the inspiration from the past, they avoid attachment which allows them the freedom to reach their sound high into the skies of the current musical climate. Either as part of a six-piece band that weaves together acoustic and electric instruments or as a solo artist with guitar and harmonica, singer/songster, Kyle Tigges presents these songs with a fearless soul and humble mind. Kyle Tigges (Vocals/Banjo) Sophia Betz (Guitar) Jeff Kahn (Guitar) Conor Mills (Guitar) Peter Grant (Bass) Semra Ercin (Drums)

Upcoming gigs:

Clearwater Sloop Sail - June 22nd

Dogwood Beacon - July 5th
