This Sunday we are welcoming folk musicians Laura Bowman and Fred Gillen Jr., who are including us on their national summer tour!

Read all about them!

“Singer-songwriter Laura Bowman is embarking on her second national tour to connect to a wider community through her music.  A talented and charismatic folk artist, Laura is also an engaging cover musician. While she can fluidly transition between genres dependent upon the atmosphere of her audience, there is a consistent through-line in her performance of energy, warmth, and genuine connection.   (

NYFA (New York Foundation for the Arts) grant recipient Fred Gillen Jr. has released nine full-length albums, to great critical acclaim, and has toured all over the US and Europe.  His songs have been featured on ABC’s “All My Children,” NPR’s “Car Talk,” CMJ’s New Music Marathon Sampler, and in 2012 his version of Woody Guthrie’s “I Ain’t Got No Home” was featured on “Pete Remembers Woody,” a collection of Pete Seeger’s spoken stories about Woody Guthrie. Like Guthrie, his songs often reflect the struggles of the marginalized and forgotten, shining a light on both the despair and hope in the human condition.  (

Both Fred and Laura are touring their most recent releases summer of 2017, on which both collaborated, Fred Gillen Jr.’s What She Said, and Laura Bowman’s Shipwreck.  “
