August

Friday, August 4, 8 p.m.

First Friday: Jim Armenti

Jim’s music is finger picked or flat picked, sometimes easy going but just as often bluegrass, swing, or rockabilly. The listener will recall Doc Watson, Norman Blake, perhaps Willie McTell or even Barney Kessel. His songwriting talents have earned him great respect in the music industry. His song Down By the Water was recorded by Cry, Cry, Cry, Cheri Knight and Pam Tillis. His album The Poetry of Longing is reviewed here. Doors open at 7:30. Refreshments available. $5.

Friday & Saturday, August 18 & 19, 7:30 p.m.
