Musical Performances


10:00am  Leah Marlene


Leah Marlene is an up and coming 15 year old singer/songwriter/musician. Leah is very passionate about all music. She plays guitar, ukulele, piano and drums. She is a professional musician who performs all over including opening up for Canadian recording artist Honeymoon Suite in Canada in 2014. She has also won several local community college talent shows with "crowd favorite" award both in 2012 & 2014! Leah has also been a featured singer on Honeymoon Suite and the Natu Band albums.


1:00pm David Berchtold

David Berchtold has been playing the guitar for more than 40 years. He  plays a wide range of folk, rock and blues, but Piedmont Blues style fingerpicking is his specialty. Though he makes it look as smooth as spreading warm butter on cinnamon toast, his ten fingers are flying in several directions simultaneously, picking out the rhythm, bass lines, and melody all at the same time. It is magic to behold. 

 A native of Illinois, Berchtold has studied with Jorma Kaukonen at the infamous Fur Peace Ranch and he teaches Piedmont Fingerpicking at festivals and colleges. With a rich repertoire from the greatest fingerpickers, including Rev. Gary Davis, Doc Watson, Leo Kottke, and Chet Atkins, David also has a solid hour of innovative original tunes, rooted in tradition but proving that this style of playing is very much alive in his hands.
