Friday April 1st  — I welcome Howard Wade, a guitarist of nearly half a century, who shares his traditional fingerstyle blues, folk and ragtime. His influences include Rev. Gary Davis, Misssissippi John Hurt and Jorma Kaukonen. “The music we make tells the story of America. It’s not the story we were told in school. … It carries the hope, despair, love, hate, triumphs and tragedies of us all. It’s our job as musicians to honor the story and carry it forward.” –from

Howard performs Friday night April 1st at Artichoke Music’s Friday coffeehouse. For those of you who don’t know, Artichoke is a non-profit dedicated to acoustic music. They have a store, offer workshops and lessons and have a live performance space.  Every Friday they host a coffeehouse with 5 or 6 up and coming musicians.
