Doug McMinn & Chris Carithers

Bob Dylan's Birthday Tribute Show 

Doug and Chris will be collaborating together for the fourth year with an all Bob Dylan tribute.

 Chris performed his solo act back in early 2016 at the Broken Axe and we are excited to have him back to bring together a full night tribute to Bob Dylan.

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...

Saturday November 30th

Eric Ian Farmer

Born in State College, Pennsylvania and raised in North Carolina, Eric Ian Farmer has returned to his birthplace sharing his songs about relationships, social awareness, and finding one's path in life while keeping alive classics by artists like Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, and Bob Marley.  Eric learned how to become one with a song from Bonnie Carter and David Williams, singers in the church of his childhood just across the North Carolina state line in Danville, Virginia.  Eric also draws inspiration as a singer from popular artists like Bobby McFerrin, Stevie Wonder, and Marvin Gaye.  And his guitar playing is inspired by the percussive stylings of rock legend Bo Diddley.

As an educator and a 2016 graduate of Penn State's educational leadership program, Eric also uses music with high school students to facilitate both songwriting and conversation related to identity and social issues.

 


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.

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.
