"Jammin' with the Stars"

4/22/18 - Jackie Bristow & Mark Punch

5/12/18 - Dave Nachmanoff

The Folk Project's "Jammin' with the Stars" series features a nationally-renowned artist performing a house concert, then backing up audience members in an open stage, and then we all enjoy a rousing music party.  You'll have the rare treat of schmoozing and making music with Joe Cocker's and Al Stewart's (Year of the Cat) backup guitarists. 

The Project throws the best music parties ever!  Jammin' with the Stars is a special and memorable treat.

Admission is $20.  Attend both concert/jams for only $34.

Jackie At once heartfelt and sophisticated, Jackie Bristow combines subtle but beautiful melodies and hooks that hypnotise the listener, demand your complete surrender, and then stick around like a real friend that never leaves you.  A hit in New Zealand and a star in Australia, Jackie is now Nashville-based and taking aim at the U.S.  She's toured and opened in the world's greatest halls for the world's greatest artists - Bonnie Raitt, Foreigner, The Steve Miller Band, Rick Springfield, Phoebe Snow, Art Garfunkel, Jimmy Webb, Paul Williams, Tommy Emanuel, Shawn Mullins - and now for The Folk Project and you.
Mark Mark Punch is a world-class and world-renowned guitarist who willl be backing up Jackie in concert and the
rest of us at a special edition open stage.   Mark is master guitarist in a wild mix of styles.  He's toured and recorded with most if not all major singers of the last 35 years in Australia, including Joe Cocker, Jimmy Barnes, Renee Geyer, Judith Durham of the Seekers, and he won "Musician of The Year" at CMAA Awards in 2012.

Dave Nachmanoff is a one-man wrecking crew, a singer-songwriter of rare humor and subtlety, a top-national-level guitarist, a thrilling pianist, a great vocalist, and a Getaway runaway hit. His broad range of styles reaches from quiet, sensitive and touching to upbeat folk-pop to Tin Pan Alley and jazz, and then over to blues and rock, and then back

again. He's earned fame as a solo performer and as the the guitar genius behind Al Stewart's  (Year of the Cat) concert tours.  He's shared the stage with the likes of Alison Krauss, Cheryl Wheeler, Steve Forbert, Firefall, and John Wesley Harding (among many others).  And today he'll share the stage with you and other Project members.

SingOut! praised his "heartfelt, inspired songwriting ... with a delivery both biting and assured,"  but that's only the tip of the Nachmanoff critical iceberg. Just Plain Folks honored him with the 2001 Songwriter of the Year award, he was a finalist in the 2011 USA Songwriting Competition, and for five consecutive years he was always in the mix for the top songwriting award in the South Florida Folk Festival before finally winning Best Overall in 2002.

David is the real deal - a talented, good-hearted, funny, compassionate, and sincere performer, songwriter and friend of the Getaway and the Project.  Everybody is invited to hang out late.  We'll send out for dinner and then welcome the Evening of Music starting at 8:00 p.m.
