Jonathan Byrd w/ Chatham Street
JONATHAN BYRD
Jonathan Byrd is "one of the top 50 songwriters of the last 50 years," says Rich Warren of WFMT in the Chicago Tribune. Scott Alarik of the Boston Globe says, "This rootsy North Carolinian may be the most buzzed-about new songwriter in folkdom. He displays John Prine's gift for stark little songs that tell big, complex stories, Guy Clark's lean melodicism, Lyle Lovett's wry mischief, and Bill Morrissey's knack for the revealing image." Byrd grew up singing in the Southern Baptist church, where his father preached and his mother played piano. After four years in the Navy, he returned to home to play in rock bands. It was at an old-time fiddle festival in the mountains of southwest Virginia where his writing began to change. Assimilating the sounds of southern traditional music, Byrd wrote new songs in an ancient style. After 10 years as a full-time touring songwriter and 7 acclaimed albums, it seems this native of Cackalacky is getting the attention he deserves.

CHATHAM STREET
Although "Chatham Street" is only a couple of years old, husband and wife, Peter and Christal Prout, have been playing music for years. Taking the name of the street they lived on in Detroit, "Chatham Street" was formed when Christal decided to pen her own songs as a way to deal with the death of several family members.  Apparently she has found her calling.
Chatham Street likes to call their sound "New Americana", as they feel it carries multiple musical influences, from old-time gospel, bluegrass, rootsy-folk, yet they feel it also has the edginess of the contemporary rock and pop music they grew up with.  Christal's vocals are a cross between Celtic and southern "down-home", and they soar over Peter's tasteful vintage guitar, sounding just like her Scottish-Appalachian heritage. Together, they are a magical and refreshing combination.
Chatham Street hit the music scene with their debut CD, "Last One Out", in October of 2010.  On September 15, 2012, not quite two years later, they were performing at the legendary venue, The Birchmere, opening for Don McLean, famous for songs such as "Bye Bye Miss American Pie" and "Vincent" (Starry Starry Night).  In those two years, they also opened for several other artists such as John McCutcheon, Catie Curtis, Larry Keel, "Girls, Guns, and Glory", and Christine Lavin.  They've shared stages with Grace Pettis, Scott Ainslie, Tom Prasada-Rao, Cary Cooper, many other excellent performers.  In addition, they have received 19 songwriting awards and placements for songs on their two CD's.
