Trinity Presbyterian Church in Berwyn PA continues their successful Trinity Spotlight Concert Series on Saturday March 25th with an In-The-Round featuring Craig Bickhardt, Thom Schuyler, and Jack Sundrud.  Join us in the sanctuary for one special evening of great acoustic music by three highly acclaimed singer-songwriters.  You’ll Laugh a Lot, Cry a Little and Really Be Inspired!

Craig Bickhardt is the uniting force behind this critically acclaimed In-The-Round series at venues throughout the country. Craig, Thom, and Jack are three of the original Writers in the Round at Nashville’s fabled Bluebird Café (featured frequently in the hit Television series, Nashville).  

Craig is a folk/Americana performing songwriter with major writing credits, a poet’s voice, a virtuoso guitar style and a veteran’s experience.  His songs have 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.

Thom Schuyler was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2011. His songs have been recorded by more than 200 artists including American Music Awards Song Of The Year "Love Will Turn You Around" by Kenny Rogers, and "Long Line of Love" by Michael Martin Murphy.  His literary lyrical sense and storytelling skills shine in songs like “My Old Yellow Car” and “Sixteenth Avenue,” the unofficial anthem of Music Row's songwriting community. 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). Thom and Craig Bickhardt co-wrote the classic song, “This Old House.”

Jack Sundrud cracked the charts with Great Plains (Sony Records) and now plays bass in the pioneering country rock group Poco, whose 40-year roster reads like a who's who in the genre.  He has toured as bassist/vocalist with Vince Gill, Dickie Betts, Bobby Whitlock, Kathy Mattea.  Sundrud has released 2 critically acclaimed Solo CDs, and his songs have been recorded by Kenny Rogers, The Judds, The Persuasions, Michael Johnson, and many more.

Craig and Jack frequently tour together as "Idlewheel", and have written over 100 songs together including the Billboard #1 Hit, "It Must Be Love."

The dynamic chemistry between Craig, Thom and Jack is the result of many years of friendship, collaboration and performing together. 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 as good as it gets!  All are welcome to join us for an enchanting and entertaining evening at Trinity's Spotlight Concert Series in Berwyn, PA.

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 of $20 per person is recommended.
