May 3: Roy Schneider w/ Gina & Jesse

Doors at 7:30 pm, Music at 8:00 pm

Roy Schneider is an award-winning songwriter and recording artist, performing his original songs on stages all over the U.S. and abroad. Twice a finalist in the prestigious Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Competition, Schneider has performed formal showcases at Folk Alliance conferences in Texas, New York, North Carolina and Arkansas, and in 2013 was a contestant on season 5 of NBC Television's "The Voice."

A successful 'Kickstarter' campaign funded his 2012 CD release, Walls That Talk, debuting at #3 on the September Folk DJ chart and added to Pandora radio shortly after. 

Roy tours all across the United States accompanied by his wife and musical partner, Kim Mayfield. They visit the Southern, Eastern and Midwestern regions most often, and have shared billings with the likes of Sam Bush, The Indigo Girls, Mary Gauthier and Over the Rhine. Roy has also performed alongside many other artists onstage including Tom Paxton, Gove Scrivenor, Freebo and John McEuen.

What the critics are saying:

"Roy Schneider fits in the same bag with such classic singer-songwriters as Guy Clark, John Prine, Steve Goodman and Townes Van Zandt."
~Alan Cackett, Editor, Maverick Magazine

"Roy is a multi-instrumentalist, one of those horrible people who seemingly can play anything they pick up and play it beautifully... Festival promoters, take note. He is a solid performer waiting to fill a spot for you. Five stars!"
~Tom Paxton

Genna and Jesse are duo alchemy at its finest. Sweet and savory, raspy and smooth, together they create a unique vocal sound, and then they complement that blend with Jesse’s prowess at the piano and guitar. Whether they sing their own songs, or the well-chosen songs of their peers, audiences are along for the ride in an intimate and inclusive show.

Genna & Jesse are currently touring internationally to promote their newest release, “Give and Take.” Their ongoing tour, which includes club venues, house concerts, restaurants, cafes, and festivals, is being done with as small a carbon footprint as possible.
