$8 – $10

March 18, 2017
Fiddler’s Green Coffeehouse

CHARLEY WOODS

Nashville native Charley Woods is making a lasting impact on the music mecca she calls home. With her instantly identifiable voice and her stylistic blend of contemporary folk and Americana, this recording artist is in a league all her own. She has performed and collaborated with many talented and influential figures in today’s country music, including Brad Paisley, Chris Young, David Nail, Wil Nance, and Mark Nesler.

Charley is currently performing, recording and writing the music that she aspires to share with the world. Her latest single Half the Girl is climbing the charts and creating a buzz. She’s looking forward to her first appearance at Fiddler’s Green.

THE IRISH BROTHERS

The Irish Brothers are Sandy “Sandyman” Flynn and “Captain” George Hergen. This is a unique team – Sandyman comes from the mountains Western North Carolina with the Captain hailing from the canyons of New York City. The two started performing together 30 years ago when they worked ‘suit’ jobs at IBM. Both draw from their Irish heritage for material – their music practically maps the Irish cultural integration into the ‘new country’ – from traditional Irish ballads, to original songs of love, drinking, revolution and redemption.

Sandy is a former songwriter on Music Row (Tree-Sony/ATV) in Nashville, and a founding member of the band Cullowhee, that toured nationally and internationally for ten years in the 70s/80s. George started singing and playing after his first visit to New York’s Greenwich Village in the mid-1960s. George honed his craft by traveling throughout Ireland with the great Tommy Makem. The team received the name “Irish Brothers” following a performance at The Folk Alliance several years ago in Memphis, Tennessee.

About our move . . .

Long-time Atlanta folk music devotees may recall that before AAFFM began Fiddler’s Green in 1986, we presented occasional concerts at First Existentialist Congregation of Atlanta in Candler Park. So moving our monthly coffeehouse concert series to this excellent venue feels like coming home.

We think you’ll richly enjoy your coffeehouse experience at “First E.” The space may remind you pleasantly of the old days at Garden Hills Community Center. It offers attractive rustic ambience, fine acoustics, good climate control, handicap-access, and space enough to accommodate large turnouts. Also like Garden Hills, you’re welcome to bring your own alcoholic beverages to this venue.

First E. is easy to find. It’s on Candler Park Drive off McLendon Avenue, several blocks east of Little Five Points and right around the corner from our erstwhile venue, New Church UMC. There’s plenty of parking on the street alongside the park. Please do not venture up the driveway beside the building; that’s private property.

We need more volunteers here than has been required in the recent past.

We especially need folks to help set up and take down tables and chairs. Volunteers enjoy the shows for free if they wish. If you’re interested, please contact Chris Moser at chrismoser@bellsouth.net or 770-482-1209.

We very much appreciate the hospitality extended us since last fall at our previous venue, New Church (formerly Epworth). Our friends there have been a delight to work with, and we’ll miss them. But both we and the congregants at First E. are tremendously excited about the relocation of our coffeehouse there. We look forward to a partnership that we believe will help Fiddler’s Green thrive for a long time to come.

Don’t miss this great performance in our wonderful new space!
