MARY BATTIATA:  Based in Arlington, Virginia, Mary Battiata performs both solo and with her band of ace roots-rock regulars, Little Pink. In reviewing her 2008 album, “Gladly Would We Anchor,” yhe Washington Post said the  "15 songs will remind listeners of Rosanne Cash, for starters ... Battiata, in her own quiet, insinuating way, earns such comparisons." Her latest album, “The Heart, Regardless,” was recorded over the course of a year in Baltimore MD with a standout band of veteran country and bluegrass players from the Mid-Atlantic, including Tim Pruitt, Alex Weber, Dave Hadley and Ed Hough, along with contributions from special guests Dudley Connell (The Seldom Scene), Mike Munford, Patrick McAvinue and Willem Elsevier.  www.littlepinktheband.com

CHRISTINA VAN NORMAN:  Washington native Christina Van Norman has been playing her guitar and singing around the Baltimore-Washington area for over twenty years now. She has played with numerous bands including the Beltway Bandits, Edge City, Billy Kemp and the Paradise Rockers, Anonymous Bosh, as well as with her current band Cryin' Fridays.Christina enjoys writing songs about the rain, her dogs, love, conspiracy, and the miserable state of the world. https://www.facebook.com/ChristinaVanNorman?fref=ts

GEOFFREY HIMES: Though he is best known as a music critic for the Washington Post, Smithsonian Magazine, Baltimore City Paper, Nashville Scene, Jazz Times, No Depression, Paste and many more, Himes is also a longtime singer-songwriter who has co-written songs with Si Kahn, Fred Koller, Walter Egan, Sonia Rutstein, Billy Kemp, Stephen Wade, Jim Patton, Ed Pettersen, Ken Kolodner, Tony Denikos, Andrew Grimm, Bob Kannenberg and others. This month Himes will premiere a new song: “Twice I Did the Leaving.”  http://www.facebook.com/RootsCafeBaltimore

WILLEM ELSEVIER:  Willem Elsevier is a conservatory trained violinist who has found success in both the classical and jazz worlds. He is best known, however, for his role in Love Riot, the Baltimore rock band that recorded with producer Eric Ambel and toured widely. Elsevier’s sophisticated solos helped the band beat out 2,500 other bands from around the globe to win the Yamaha Music Quest competition  in Japan in 1994. Elsevier has also recorded with such acts as Billy Kemp and Milkshake. Since 2012, he has been performing and songwriter in a duo with Geoffrey Himes.
