Space is limited and reservations are required.  Call (904) 434-9876.  A $10 donation is recommended.

Al Poindexter will perform original songs about Florida and Beluthahatchee and few songs sung by Pete Seeger. Seeger, friend of Woody Guthrie, sang songs throughout the civil rights movement of the 50’s and 60’s.  Al will perform solo, but has appeared many times as Al Poindexter and River Rise.

Brad Lauretti is the principal songwriter of the Americana group “This Frontier Needs Heroes” and founder of the Jacksonville Songwriter Residency. The name of the band, is a reference to Woody Guthrie’s famous WWII-era guitar graffiti “This Machine Kills Fascists” which invites all to become a hero in their own right.
