When: Sun., Jan. 9, 7 p.m. 2011

Rob Reid’s songs draw from an eclectic range of world genres and describe colorful characters involved in endeavors such as riding public transit in West Africa, surviving lightning strikes, and holding up banks. Chresten Hyde is a songwriter, drummer and recording artist devoting most of his time working as a sideman, but also crafting neatly-wrapped pop songs tucked away in an expanding back catalog. Lady Cannon “blurs the line between folk ballad and torch song, show tune and work song… with a voice and delivery that says smoke-filled night club and instrumentation that says bluegrass porch jam” (WMSE 91.7, Milwaukee)
