Few among us could distill our essence with such elegant simplicity. We want to deconstruct every line for deeper meaning, but there is no need. What Keith Greeninger brings to music, and life for that matter, is authenticity. As a result, there are no barriers between Keith, his music and his audience. This bond stems from Keith’s underlying philosophy that music is first and foremost a gift and a medicine to take part in together.
As a singer-songwriter, Keith paints intricate portraits of the human condition with powerful melodic images, deep engaging guitar rhythms and husky, heart-wrenching vocals. His masterfully crafted tunes and powerful presence have earned him the top songwriting awards at the prestigious Telluride Blue Grass Festival, The Kerrville Folk Festival and The Napa Valley Folk Festival. Keith has toured the national Folk and Americana circuit extensively for over two decades. He’s performed at festivals and legendary venues, appeared on countless national radio shows, and shared stages with dozens of the country’s best-known artists. Keith’s records and personal appearances have garnered him a legion of devoted fans, and the respect, admiration and appreciation of music critics far and wide.

Opening the show is No Good Sister, a female vocal trio out of Philadelphia, PA. In the Fall of 2012, a mom, a teacher, and a waitress, decided to turn their mutual admiration for each other’s music, writing and voices into a musical project that would both showcase them as individuals, but especially highlight their deep affinity for tight 3-part harmonies.
Meaghan Kyle, originally from Columbia, MD, got her musical roots from the great American songbook. At 16, she began a career as a professional theatre actress, but upon moving to Philadelphia nearly 8 years ago, she quickly found herself immersed in the thriving Philly music scene. Originally from Newtown, PA, Jess McDowell cut her musical teeth at an early age by hopping from bluegrass festival to bluegrass festival, absorbing all the traditions of the Americana repertoire. A musical bond was quickly formed with Meaghan and they craved a project with a little more blues, a little more roots, and one that would have them up front. And with a third female voice. Enter Maren Sharrow. Maren began her music career singing back-up vocals for several bands in her hometown of Detroit, MI, where she wrote the songs for her debut solo EP, Pretty Mess, released in 2006 to critical acclaim. Sharrow was featured on NPR’s Open Mic, and The Detroit Metro Times praised the songstress for her “angel wings and fearie breath,” calling her the “Patty Griffin of the D.” Visit their website http://www.nogoodsister.com.
