Singer/Singwriter Showcase with Jim Gill

It's true that Jim Gill was a finalist in the new song competition at Kerrville's Music Festival in Texas. It's also true that he was the first runner-up in the 2006 Pittsburgh Singer/Songwriter competition and has toured throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and New England. It would not be a lie to state that he has shared stages with artists as renowned and varied as John Gorka, Michael Stanley and Tommy James and the Shondells. Nor is it a fallacy to divulge that he has seven sisters and no brothers. (I'll let that sink in.) But perhaps most notably, Jim Gill may be most proud for winning a coloring contest in fourth grade. (It's been discovered that the other kids in the class weren't trying all that hard!) Oh, and he sings and plays a guitar. No cover charge. Jim will play inside the cidery. Please note that after 6pm, Bent Ladder is 21+ only, please. Bent Ladder Cider and Wine 6:30 PM 330-485-1089

Singer/Songwriter Showcase with Gretchen Pleuss

As with some of her proudly stated musical heroes, which include Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, and Ani Difranco, Pleuss keeps the music above the standard, three-chord, coffee-house troubadour sound with some cool chord progressions (a la Mitchell) and grooves. Pleuss also trusts her lilting melodies enough to use her quiet, emotive alto to sell her lyrics. Malcolm X Abram, The Akron Beacon Journal No cover charge. Please note that after 6pm, Bent Ladder is 21+ only, please. Bent Ladder Cider and Wine 6:30 PM 330-485-1089
