Saturday December 7th

Chris Carithers

Coal towns, ghost towns, old men re-telling old stories— Christopher Carithers brings an old soul’s perspective to each of his songs. Each word has been lived and earned. Real stories from real people-- seasons of weakness, riddles in dreams, corner bars and fire halls, doctors, saints, and bombardiers… Christopher Carithers invokes Steinbeck & Salinger; walks us past painted porches and familiar faces; pauses beside rusting bridges. He lays us down beneath shooting stars. Chris, a rust-belt writer and self-taught guitarist, is a life-long lover of roots rock, modal jazz, and improvisational performance. A native of the coal fields of Eastern Pennsylvania, Chris brings the boom and bust of his own story into his music.

Doug has had a long and colorful career as both leader and sideman, playing with dozens of bands in the Central Pennsylvania area, starting with the Killer Bees Swing Band back in the 1980's. He has jammed on stage with blues luminaries ranging from Saffire (the Uppity Blues Women) and E.G. Kight to Lonnie Shields and Big Jack Johnson, and has been featured on several CDs, including the AAA Blues Band's HIGH WATER and GRASSHOPPER by Williamsport's Lumpy Gravy. Over the years he has amassed a thick songbook of compositions as well...

Sean Farley

Born in Williamsport, PA, music has been a part of my life since the beginning. My grandmother has been a professional pianist and music teacher for twice the length of my lifetime! I grew up around her pianos and organs and was always drawn to their beautiful sounds. It was clear that music was deeply engrained in my heart and soul. I have been learning to play instruments such as piano, voice, violin, drums, bass, and guitar since the age of five. These days, playing the guitar and singing consumes my life and my future!

The Abe Fromans

The Broken Axe Brew House is committed to bringing you the best Jazz, Blues, Bluegrass, and Folk Music from across central Pennsylvania and beyond. In an intimate 70 seat venue with live music every Saturday at 8pm.

 Due to our small intimate setting and limited preforming space we focus on solo and duets acts. In order to insure the best experience for our patrons and performers we do not book "full band's" (four piece and larger). We also have limited the use of full percussion sets in an effort to avoid overwhelming the space. Thank you for your consideration, we look forward to continually supporting live music in Lock Haven.

Would you like to perform at the Broken Axe?
