The 2016 Lewisburg Celebration of the Arts will close with a free music festival on Saturday, May 7 – Lewisburg Live! 

This year's Live! features eight bands in eight different venues throughout downtown Lewisburg between 6 pm and midnight. Music ranges from classical to rock to jazz to blues – something for every taste. And all free!

The lineup for this year's Lewisburg Live!:

6-8PM: Lawson & Disorder, Siam Cafe, 518 Market Street
Lawson & Disorder offers a delightful, free-wheeling tour of musical styles and human emotions. Just as you think you have them figured out, they head off in an entirely different and unexpected direction, and each new road is just as entertaining as the one before it. When pressed to describe their music, they put it this way: Basically we do two kinds of music: sophisticated music for down-home folk and down-home music for sophisticated people.

6:30 – 8:30PM: KJ & Gina, Barnes & Noble Bookstore at Bucknell University, 400 Market Street

Kj Reimensnyder-Wagner and Jina Gillis-Rosencrans are friends that love great songs, harmony, and acoustic instrumentation. Performing as a duo they will offer songs from each of their various influences that range from Folk, Classic Country, Traditional, Classic Bluegrass, Singer-Songwriter selections, and some regional originals.

6:30 – 8:30PM: Adam Jacob, Mercado Burrito, 520 Market Street

Adam Jacob is a singer/songwriter originally from Lewisburg, who blends his graceful acoustic guitar playing with raw, emotional lyrics in his original songs, as well as his unique interpretations of select covers.

7-9PM: Runaway Stroller, Bushel & Barrel, 606 Market Street

Runaway Stroller is made up of vocalist, songwriter, and rhythm guitar player, Johanna Brooke Kodlick and lead guitar pro, singer, songwriter, Anthony Latt. Performing together since 2002, this duo brings exciting life to your favorite songs from the 1960’s to today. Fans quickly become “Stroller Chasers” due to the duo’s eclectic song list and irresistible, live energy.

7:30-9:30PM:Alphonse Ciaccio, Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, 100 S. 3rd St.

Alfonse Ciaccio has carried on a love affair with the guitar since the age of 8. The result of this affair has been a lifelong pursuit in the perfection of his craft. Mr. Ciaccio has studied the classical guitar with Mrs. Mary Anthony, famed protege’ of the Spanish master Narciso Yepes, and with Dr. Matthew Slotkin of Mansfield University and the Eastman School of Music and Dr. Pablo Cohen of Ithaca College. Mr. Ciaccio has performed on “The Today Show” and National Public Radio and Television. He has also performed with the Williamsport Chamber Orchestra, Susquehanna Pops Orchestra, members of the Robert Palmer Band and the Paul Winter Consort, Mansfield University Jazz Ensemble, Guire Webb and many others.

8-10PM: Grand Junction, The Lewisburg Club, 131 Market Street

It has been said that before there was Country Music, there was Country & Western. As one
enthusiastic “Grand Junction” fan put it recently, “These Folks are the Western”. Grand Junction performs an eclectic blend of Western Americana that will take you on a virtual trip to “Cowtown”. Western Swing,Traditional Country, Early Country Rock, Southern Cowboy Rock and original music played by seasoned musicians, (some who have performed with or shared the stage with with some of Country Music’s nationally recognized stars), will make you smile and want to pull your dancin’ boots on.

9-11PM: Faculty Lounge, Bull Run Tap House, 605 Market Street

Once considered the most pretentious faculty rock band at Susquehanna University; now, simply the best. Actually, the only. Founding members Dave Imhoof (vocals, keyboards), Larry Roth (guitar, vocals) and Pat Long (drums) have been rocking the Susquehanna Valley since the early aughts and took part in the infamous “Profapalooza” at Atlantic City’s House of Blues. Now, with the recent addition of Louie Land (guitar, vocals) and Pete Groff (bass), they have expanded their mighty musical cruise boat into an invincible armada of rock. Playing all your favorite tunes, from the Beatles and Hendrix, to Kiss and Queen, to the Killers and Black Keys.

10PM-Midnight: Sweeney Blues Revue, Towne Tavern, 600 Market Street

They play their favorite blues and rock – for your listening and dancing pleasure.

The Lewisburg Celebration of the Arts is sponsored by the Lewisburg Arts Council, with financial assistance from members and many local businesses. Information about the Arts Council, the Celebration of the Arts, and all our partners can be found at www.lewisburgartscouncil.com.
