Craig Bickhardt's extraordinary voice, song writing skills and musicianship combine to make any House Concert a pure joy and inspiration!

**Miche will be a headliner at the 2015 Listening Room Festival in Florida - for the 2nd time!** Born and raised in West Philly, Miche would sneak down to the basement to practice on his brother's drum kit while his brother was out playing ball and being a regular kid. After he was discovered and kicked off the drums, he took up the guitar that his brother had abandoned the year before. This time he holed up in his room teaching himself to play. He didn't get everything right as a leftie, he flipped the guitar over and tuned it straight up the neck.

From the very beginning, he had his own sound. His teen years were spent as a neighborhood band leader teaching anyone who got an instrumen...

Jon Shain grew up in Haverhill, Massachusetts, a Merrimack River mill-town that had already seen its better days by the time he was a child in the 1970s. His family?s business was a small textile dyeing company, and he worked in the factory during the summers throughout his teens. At the same time, Shain began to discover his love of American roots music and songwriting, specifically drawn to the narratives about regular people and themes of social justice.

Shain headed south to North Carolina in 1986, to study American History at Duke University and to continue his musical journey, as well. In addition to studying with jazz professor Paul Jeffrey, he also had the good fortune to learn the piedm...
