Saturday, July 2nd 7PM - Ronstadt Generations

posted Feb 17, 2016, 10:56 AM by John Ward   [ updated May 24, 2016, 5:45 AM ]


Trinity Presbyterian Church in Berwyn, PA is thrilled to announce the return of Ronstadt Generations to Trinity's Spotlight Concert Series for an encore performance on Saturday, July 2nd at 7 PM.

Representing five generations in North America, Ronstadt Generations continues the family’s musical traditions with Michael J. Ronstadt (younger brother of Linda) and his sons, Michael G. and Petie. Multi-instrumentalists and solo performers in their own right, they present an exciting repertoire that preserves the traditional Southwestern and Mexican songs of their heritage while offering innovative original material.

New compositions place them on the cutting edge of multiple, blended genres, stretching the boundaries of folk, blues, jazz and beyond. Rich harmonies sung in English and Spanish are accompanied by outstanding cello and guitars. Individually and together, Stateside and across the pond, the trio’s worldwide touring and recording credits include such diverse artists as Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, Dixie Hummingbirds, David Bromberg, Nydia Rojas, Tish Hinojosa, Muriel Anderson, and Mariachi Vargas, to name a few.

Audiences will be treated to a family-oriented show featuring the best of what maintains the Ronstadt family as the “First Family of the Southwest.”  On their current tour, the band has added the soulful tenor sax of Tucson-based Alex Flores.

The doors will open at 6:30 PM and the concert will begin at 7 PM.  The concert is free, but a free will offering will be accepted to help support the program.  The recommended donation is $20 per person.

Saturday, April 2nd 7 PM - On the Road & In the Round

Join us on Saturday April 2nd at 7 PM in the church sanctuary as
three highly acclaimed singer-songwriters team up and take the stage! 
You’ll Laugh a Lot, Cry a Little & Really Be Inspired!

Craig Bickhardt is the uniting force behind this critically acclaimed In-The-Round series at venues throughout the country. Craig and Thom are two of the original Writers in the Round at Nashville’s fabled Bluebird Café (featured frequently in the hit ABC Television series, Nashville). The dynamic chemistry between Craig and Thom is the result of many years of friendship, collaboration and performing together.  Joining them will be international touring artist Lizanne Knott, celebrating the release of her new CD, "Excellent Day" on Proper Music.

You will be moved by all three performers, knocked out by their musicianship, and entertained by the wonderful, often hilarious stories they tell about their songs and careers.  This show promises to be good as it gets!  We hope you'll join us for an enchanting and entertaining evening at Trinity's Spotlight Concert Series in Berwyn, PA.

The Concert is open to the public with no admission charge, but a free-will offering of $20 per person is suggested.


Artist Bio's:

Craig Bickhardt is a native Pennsylvanian.  His first big break came in 1982 when he wrote and sang two songs for Robert Duvall’s Academy Award-winning film Tender Mercies. In the wake of that film’s success, Bickhardt made his move to Nashville where his songs found their way onto platinum and Grammy-winning recordings by legends such as Johnny Cash, Martina McBride, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles, B.B. King, Jonathan Edwards, David Wilcox, Pam Tillis, Kathy Mattea and Alison Krauss. His 850+-tune catalog includes nine Top Ten hits (four No. 1 country hits — "Turn It Loose" and "I Know Where I’m Going" recorded by The Judds, "In Between Dances" by Pam Tillis and "It Must Be Love" recorded by Ty Herndon).  Craig’s September, 2011 headline appearance at Pennsylvania’s Sellersville Theater resulted in his critically acclaimed CD, "Live at Sellersville Theater."  Craig's CD "The More I Wonder," is included in SingOut! Magazine’s Best of 2014.  Craig's latest CD is Idlewheel's "Live at Morningstar," and features long-time collaborator Jack Sundrud (Poco).  The duo recorded the album live before an intimate audience at Morningstar Studio, and was mixed by two-time Grammy winning engineer Glenn Barratt.

Thom Schuyler was born in nearby Bethlehem PA, and was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2011.  Thom's songs have been recorded by more than 200 artists including "16th Avenue" by Lacy J. Dalton, American Music Awards Song Of The Year "Love Will Turn You Around" by Kenny Rogers, and "Long Line of Love" by Michael Martin Murphy.  Thom has been a solo recording artist for Capitol Records and a member of the MTM Records trios S-K-O (Schuyler, Knobloch & Overstreet) and SKB (Schuyler, Knobloch & Bickhardt).  SKB had a number of Top 25 songs, including the Top 10 classic "This Old House," which was co-written with Craig Bickhardt.  Throughout Thom's career he has also been chairman of the Country Music Association and head of RCA records' Nashville division.  In that role Thom signed singer Kenny Chesney, the band Lonestar and had a significant role in the careers of Alabama, Clint Black, Martina McBride, Lorrie Morgan, and Sara Evans.  Schuyler is currently the Young Adult Minister at a church in Nashville and is an adjunct instructor at Belmont University.

Lizanne Knott is a long standing member of the Philadelphia music scene and partner of Grammy Award Winning MorningStar Studios.  She has also managed to make herself a home in Nashville as well as the UK.  Lizanne has been captivating audiences throughout the US and UK, garnering accolades from radio listeners and peers around the globe. She has performed at some of the most prestigious listening venues, theaters and concert halls throughout the US, UK and Spain and at a growing number of mainstream festivals including; The Philadelphia Folk Fest, The Canterbury Festival (England) The Belfast Fest (Ireland) and The Sala BBK Fest (Spain). She has shared the stage with the likes of Shawn Colvin, Joan Osbourne, Josh Ritter, Jimmy Webb, JD Souther, Melody Gardot and more.
