Another wonderful installment of our monthly singer-songwriter showcase series, curated by local songwriter Steve Patterson!

Steeped in the tradition of legendary songwriters like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Carol King, Kris Kristofferson, John Prine, Paul Simon, to name just a few, the Singer-Songwriter Showcase intends to bring artists and audience together to enjoy new original music.

Each month, we will present a headliner, an established artist working in this genre, and we will follow that performance with a bill of writers who want to bring out two or three new tunes to try out on the audience.

This month’s featured performer is Lancaster native Jean Synodinos, who has made a name for herself from the heart of Austin, TX. She returns home, bringing her grit, grace, and acoustic soul with a voice that’s been hailed by critics as “big league” and “show-stopping.” Her award-winning writing digs deep, moving from big affirmations to little ironies at the turn of a phrase.  Deftly skating between genres, Jean easily slips from folk to pop to jazz to blues and more to create dynamic live performances and recordings that make audiences ask for more. Also on tap for this event is singer-songwriter Butch Zito along with Olds Sleeper.
