Amy Kucharik Photo by Richard ChaseDrawing from blues and Dixieland traditions and with a street-smart stagecraft honed in the subways of Boston, Amy’s "modern vintage" grooves have earned her comparisons to Lake Street Dive, Maria Muldaur and the Asylum Street Spankers. The 2015 Kerrville New Folk winning songwriter explores all dimensions of her ukulele, both exploiting and defying its reputation as a novelty instrument.

Saturday, May 21 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Take four people from Louisiana, Vermont, Connecticut, and Sweden.
Add equal parts of folk, old-fashioned country, with a pinch
of bluegrass and gospel. Put it into a pot of cover tunes from
the last century. Spice with plenty of harmony vocals and add an
original or two. That's Tail - rootsy, acoustic, and pleasant.

What to expect? Songs of Neil Young, Beatles, Dylan, Traditionals,
Steve Earl, Grateful Dead, Pixies, 80’s pop\70s hits, originals.
All presented with a very personal touch.
