Potter County's Denton Hill Ski Lodge is the location on Saturday, August 4th'. The Songwriter’s Roundtable will feature a true “In the Round” event as we bring in a slew of solo performing songwriters.

Robin Greenstein- NYC Songwriter Robin Greenstein has collected awards and accomplishments both for her songwriting and performance. She was signed to Bob Dylan’s publishing company for two years, has showcased at Kerrville folk and Falcon Ridge, Recorded for Fast Folk and Atlantic Records, and toured Europe in support of “Slow Burn”, her acclaimed debut CD that was picked up by Swiss label Brambus Records. Robin has also been selected to represent the world renowned Martin Guitar Company in her performances.

Rich Deans- Northern New Jersey resident Rich Deans has been described as a songwriter’s songwriter. He has been a staff songwriter for ABC/Dunhill, Laurel Canyon Music, Dreena Publishing and Castle Hill Music. His song “Blue Eyes and White Lies”, written for Kim Carnes, was chosen by Billboard Magazine as album cut “pick hit” and his composition “Tiger on The Lawn” was recorded by Paul Cotton of the country-rock band POCO for his solo record. Recently, his composition “Don’t Dig My Grave Too Deep” was recorded by Pat Wictor on his excellently reviewed "Waiting for the Water" release. And the recent release by Hope Machine includes a stirring version of Rich's "You Can Count On Me."

Nick Annis- Florida’s Nick Annis is a multi award winning songwriter and performer who writes deep, atmospheric, and sometimes surprising songs. An expert story teller with a mesmerizing stage presence, audiences return time and time again to hear him deliver spoken word pieces in the style of brilliant songwriter/storytellers like Gamble Rogers, John McCutcheon, and Dave Carter. Nick's insights are drawn from widely varied careers (including selling ice cream from a truck, running a small bakery, and drilling for oil in the Midwest), but also from his upbringing in a large Greek family.

Tess Reitz- Opening our show will be Boston’s Tess Reitz, better known as “Miss Tess”. Tess is the niece of local slide steel wizard Don Reitz, and is carving out a career as a songwriter and performer in the Cambridge folk scene, where she fronts the Bon Ton Parade band, currently touring throughout the Northeast. Tess’s music is heavily influenced by her Maryland upbringing, listening to her father’s big Band rehearsing in the basement, and contains elements of ragtime, jump blues, and 30’s swing. Her smooth but powerful vocal style is reminiscent of Norah Jones.

The Roundtable will again be hosted by Eppie Bailey and Steve Quelet of Jakob’s Hollow, and they’ll have a few surprises of their own to bring to the “In the Round”, as they unleash a batch of brand new co-written songs on the unsuspecting public.

Artists In Residence- This month’s Roundtable will feature local artist Karen Wolf, and the artistry and artisanship of the Hann family of Sabinsville.

Karen Wolf- Potter County’s Karen Wolf has just completed an acclaimed showcase of her paintings at the John White Gallery in Coudersport. “A love of nature and detail has been my focus when painting. I try to bring depth, truth, and possibly even a story to my work. With each piece I learn new lessons and understanding about nature's way, things that I might otherwise pass by and not ever see. This is why I love to create the detail in each painting.” The medium Karen chooses to work with is primarily acrylics because of its layering and fast drying qualities. Although she had put her brushes down for many years, Karen says she now paints every day. “I am living in a good place here in potter County Pennsylvania. It is where I am finding myself again”

The Hann Family- Sabinville’s “Made By Hann” family is a true artistic family enterprise. Don Hann will be bringing along wife Bonnie, sister Lori, and mom Evelyn, all artists and artisans in their own right!
Don built his first guitar when he was 15. A short while later his grandfather gave him a broken violin that had fallen apart. “He said I could have it if I could fix it. From that time on I got the "itch" to make a fiddle from scratch. There always seemed to be more important things to do
(like raise a family) but the desire never left.” Over the years, Don has handmade over 30 instruments, including flat top and arch top guitars, mandolins and violins, and a banjo is next on the agenda! Wife Bonnie crochets and sews, and has become quite well known for her beadwork jewelry. Sister Lori started Beracah Art, named after the scriptural “Valley of Beracah”, which means valley of praise. “I enjoy blending the different art mediums. I've always noticed and appreciated the natural beauty around us, but it's only been in recent years after a time of personal struggle and heartbreak that I've learned to share that beauty through photography, acrylics, and watercolors.” Don’s mom Evelyn Hann learned how to crochet rag rugs from her mother. Now at 83 years of age, she’s made hundreds of rugs of many colors, and is still creating and combining colors to express her artistic talent. She also sews potholders and pillows!
