Presented by The Songwriters’ Association of Washington DC (SAW)
Local performer Juels Bland assembles three fellow songwriters (Lena Traynham, Kevin de Souza, Zach Parkman) for a night of storytelling and intrigue! And music!
A singer/songwriter/person from Silver Spring, Juels Bland has performed broadly throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Appalachia as well as countless open mics and coffeehouses here and there. Original lyrics and music full of rich tones provide a thought provoking, penetrating, and (sometimes) uplifting sound conjuring scenes of love, loss, longing and murder.
Michael Potts is a finger style guitarist in the genre-less realm of Mason Williams, Tommy Emmanuel, Stephen Bennett. Piano lessons at age 6 and classical guitar lessons at 10, led to playing in rock and fusion bands, folk groups, and as a soloist at weddings and other events. Musical downtime in the 80's and 90's allowed Michael to focus better on his business career. He reconnected with guitar after being introduced to Tommy Emmanuel's music in the mid-90's. And a well-received record release of my own compositions in 2020 gave him the spark to perform again.
