Matt Cappy
Journeyman trumpeter Matt Cappy brings remarkable pedigree and history as a sideman (Michael Jackson, Jill Scott, Jay Z, Earth, Wind & Fire and many others) to his maiden voyage, Church and State (Ropeadope Records), in compositions that can be described as “forward thinking retro jazz”.
John Train (duo) - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
John Train (duo)
John Train was formed in the mid-1990s, when songwriter/guitarist Jon Houlon met dobro player Mike 'Slo-Mo' Brenner (Marah, Songs:Ohia/Magnolia Electric Co, Low Road, Slo-Mo), and the two began exploring bluegrass and Texas folk material and performing around the Philadelphia area. Fast forward almost 20 years and six CD releases later, John Train still chugs on, now a rootsy 6-piece that features Houlon, Brenner and Mark Tucker on guitar and steel guitar, Mark Schreiber on drums, Mike Frank on bass and Bill Fergusson on mandolin. John Train performs regularly in the Philadelphia area and frequently at Fergie’s Pub, where the band has held a semi-regular gig for almost a decade. The band's most recent CD, "A Wig and A Wonder," was released in 2013. John Train has opened for the likes of Dave Alvin, Junior Brown, Joe Ely, Mick Taylor, Jesse Winchester, John Wesley Harding, Butch Hancock and Robert Earl Keen.
