Singer and songwriter Abbie Gardner resumed her solo adventure after more than a decade of touring with Americana darlings Red Molly. Tales of love and loss, both gritty and sweet, ride the back of her by-now familiar, formidable slide guitar licks. Winner of the 2008 Lennon Award for "The Mind of a Soldier" and 2008 American Songwriter Magazine Grand Prize Lyric Winner for "Id Rather Be," she channels Lucinda Williams and Bonnie Rait, but remains pure Abbie. www.abbiegardner.com
Kicking off the night is a performance by Jersey City-based singer-songwriter & guitarist Sean Kiely, whose melodies were described by WFMUs Pat Byrne as taking the listener to a place high above the astral plane, a place of comfort and warmth, glimpsed at in dreams but always unable to describe when conscious. His latest EP "It Sure Was Good" is a deeply felt collection of songs of loss and love. He is currently working on his second full-length record. www.seankielymusic.com
