This months concert will feature Tim McGeary, Carleen Thissen, and Marie Nofsinger.

Tim McGeary is an accomplished songwriter who writes and sings songs that can connect to people and bring them to an emotional state.

​McGeary’s dedication to his muse has never faltered, and now, even after a couple of decades of plying his craft, that passion is as intense as ever.

McGeary’s songs have been tapped for such hit television shows as “Smallville,” “One Tree Hill” and “Glory Days,” as well as the made-for- HBO film “Girl Got Moe.” McGeary’s songs are not only a perfect soundtrack for the Hollywood hit-makers, but for those everyday individuals who can relate to those intimate feelings and connect them with their own.

Carlene Thissen, is a singer, songwriter and author from Naples, Florida.  Her voice reminds us of her influences, Judy Collins, Joni Mitchell, and Joan Baez.  From Woodstock memories to her passion for Immokalee’s farm workers, Carlene’s music will take you back and may even inspire you to Go Change the World.

Marie Nofsinger is an award winning songwriter, national touring performer and recording artist who will take you on a journey into the soul of America.

Tales of outlaws, anarchists, the common working man, Jesus and broken hearts fill her original repertoire. Lilting melodies, swamp stomp rhythms, as well as jazzy swing tunes carry the lyrics into your memory.

A published BMI songwriter, her credits include; Her CD “Boots” which was voted City Link Magazine’s “Best Acoustic CD of 1999” and the latest 2010 release “The Wildlife Rides Again” chosen as “Best Roots and Acoustic CD of 2010” by the Palm Beach Post Entertainment Editor.
