Songwriters Showcase Tim Mcgeary, Bill Metts, & Bob Williams
This show came together when Doug MacLeod had to cancel for heath reasons.
The different ways to listen to music is endless. One of our favorites, is three songwriters sharing the stage performing original songs and the stories behind the songs. For this show we have three very unique songwriters all with a story to tell.

Bill Metts said, he started playing guitar when was 19 during the country blues revival of the late 60s. I fell in love with the music of Taj Mahall, Mississippi John Hurt, Doc Watson and others of that ilk. Just about everything that I have done since then has been in that down-home finger-picking style. I had the honor of being asked to perform at the annual Mississippi John Hurt Blues Festival in Avalon Ms. in 2011. All types of music move me I but prefer to play and sing traditional Americana roots music.
In the late sixties, Bob Williams, a young guitar player from Long Island, NY, began writing his own music. Pulling elements from Folk-Rock and Country-Rock, Bob created a sound all of his own. Always eager to share amusing stories behind the lyrics, Bob’s songs are personal. Irreverent. Funny. Sad. And most importantly, true to his heart.
