A veteran of Lilith Fair, she has sung on stage with Sheryl Crow, the Dixie Chicks and Sarah McLachlan.

Steele of the Randall Bramblett Band. To learn more about Marty and hear some of her music, please visit www.reverb.nation.com. Winkler’s return to the musical stage is in preparation for her 2018 album, “Songs I Never Played For My Father” which will feature songs recorded and produced by Michael C. Steele and M. Lee Davis (Rascal Flats and Corey Smith.) You can find Marty’s CDs on www.cdbaby.com and www.Amazon.com more >>>
Maggie Mason Hunter began singing with the bluegrass band The Warblers in 1990. They were lucky enough to appear on NPR's Mountain Stage and played at bluegrass festivals with the likes of Doc Watson and Ralph Stanley. She has been playing and recording with The Solstice Sisters since 1994 and is the host of WUGA's JustFolks, a weekly radio program. In her other life, she teaches 6-9 year-olds at Athens Montessori, leads the Montessori Singing Circle and feeds dogs, chickens, a snake, a tortoise, 2 finches and a hairless guinea pig on a daily basis. more >>>
Susan Staley | 7:30 PM
Susan Staley plays in the singing trio The Solstice Sisters, the early jazz-styled, six-piece band The Hobohemians, and in the old-time fiddle band String Theory. She also books the music at the Athens Farmers Market and has also hosted the Athens Folk Music and Dance Society's music variety show The Hoot for many years.
SJ Ursrey | 7:30 PM
Flagpole Magazine described SJ Ursrey's album, "American Beach" as "disturbing, beautiful, nostalgic, dreamy and wounded...one hell of a good record." Could be a great way to describe SJ herself. Known locally in Athens as a lead singer, SJ has great affection for singing harmonies as well. Best known for her work in the groups Dream Boat and Dark Meat, Honeychild is her current incarnation and features her gifts on ukulele. more >>>
