Marc Douglas Berardo lives on the southwestern coastline of Rhode Island on a river that runs into the ocean. Berardo’s songs mine the deep feelings and lessons gleaned from real-life characters and situations. It’s his songs combined with an onstage presence that uses humor and deft storytelling to rally an audience and lead them into a deep and sometimes spiritual experience. It’s an adventure that brings to mind James Taylor, Jimmy Buffett, Guy Clark, or Steely Dan with a touch of Mark Twain or Hunter S. Thompson for good measure. After thirty years of bars, theaters, house concerts, and festivals as well as a boatload of song awards and national recognition, Berardo has established himself as the real deal. A lifer that No Depression Magazine called: “sincere, fluid, charming and above all gripping.”.  Watch a video or learn more about him at https://www.marcdouglas.com.

Songwriter, singer, traveler, troubadour – the calling Walt Wilkins answered, the life he chose, the way he makes his way. Walt went full time on this road more than 25 years ago. It’s been a spiritual quest, an amazing trip, at turns heartbreaking and transcendent. In that time he’s made nine solo records, four records with The Mighty Mystiqueros, one with his wife Tina, and there’s a new live record with friend Kevin Welch. He has had 100 or more songs recorded by other artists, traveled a fair part of the world, and had some very, very large times. He appears Wednesdays with his brothers The Mystiqueros at The Saxon Pub in Austin, the first Sunday of every month at Luckenbach, The Red River Songwriters Festival on the last weekend of January in the mountains of northern New Mexico, and Waltstock & Barrel, a Texas wine, beer and music festival near Fredericksburg on the first weekend of April. He moves around a lot.  Check him out at https://www.waltwilkins.com.

Other upcoming concerts include Grace Morrison on October 24, Craig Bickhardt and Jesse Terry on November 21, and Carla Ulbrich on December 5.
