By birth a Tennessean, David Massengill “emigrated” to the Greenwich Village folk scene in the mid-70’s, walking the same streets and playing the same storied coffee houses as Dylan and Van Ronk.



Thirty years later, he’s still walking those streets—but now he’s being recognized universally for his pivotal role in keeping the American folk music tradition alive. Called “a master of vivid lyrical imagery” (Boston Globe), David continues to create beautiful and poignant “story songs” that are intimate and relevant and tug at your emotions. Songs like "Rider On An Orphan Train“ a narrative ballad ringing with truth and anguish” (Washington Post), "Number One In America", a riveting and ironic civil rights anthem” (Boston Globe) and the biting political statement, "The Gambler", a thing of beauty about all things ugly” (Barry Crimmins).



His songs have been covered and recorded by Joan Baez, The Roches, Lucy Kaplansky, Tom Russell, Nanci Griffith and his mentor, Dave Van Ronk, who said David “took the dull out of dulcimer!” Notes Music Boulevard, “That David made the lap dulcimer his instrument of choice tells us a lot about the soft-spoken native of eastern Tennessee. He accompanies his performance with an instrument indelibly Appalachian, yet conquers even the most urban of musical communities. He does it without losing that remarkable gift for true storytelling.”



David has released six albums, eleven bootlegs and fourteen books to date, including “Partners in Crime”, the debut album of The FolkBrothers, David’s duo project with the late great Jack Hardy.

*******

Jo Williamson's musical oeuvre is a journey of the heart. Her work is personal and introspective. She shares with us the depth and intensity of a compelling inner world. Her songs are brilliantly crafted and are eloquently delivered with her exquisite voice. In 2018 she released her fifth recording of music, "Kidz Talk", a collection of original songs for kids of all ages. Her most popular track, "Sing a Little Song", is both a rousing affirmation and a simple plan for living. It could be an anthem for the inner child within us all.

Jo is a recent addition to the Tribes Hill community of Kindred Folk.

After dinner music continues until about 10:30 with our collaborative song circle that includes music makers and music lovers from the Tribes Hill community and newly invited guests.
