"Where words fail, Music speaks"*

My purpose for this little venue that is my home, my very - under long term renovation home, is that some very excellent musicians, songwriters and performers will come and give you a show worth remembering.  The folks that play here will be performers who earn their living sharing their own "made up" music with you.  There will always be an expected donation, usually $25 or $30, 100% to the musicians, and our hope is that you will further support them by purchasing some of their merchandise and/or spreading their name and fine music around amongst your friends.

Please come, enjoy and support as much of this music as you can.  Bring some food, wine, beer, snacks, for yourself or some to share (we’re not encouraging sharing at this time for covid reasons). Bring your own chairs, picnic blankets, etc,

There will always be time to enjoy each others company and to meet the performers, but when the music starts - listening room rules apply.  That means no chatting, wandering around or engaging in any distracting behavior.

I can't wait to see you here and to enjoy these awesome performers together.  Please email me at for details about shows.

Craig Bickhardt

the Farmhouse, 103 Goose Hill Rd, Chester

This will be a labor day Pot Luck BBQ topped off by the exquisite music of Craig Bickhardt. Check him out here:

When Craig Bickhardt steps onto a concert stage, he comes equipped with his trusty acoustic guitar, but he's also accompanied by something invisible, yet ever-present: the stories of a lifetime, vividly translated into words and melody.

Craig is a singer/songwriter of the old school – you can hear echoes of such 60s folk revival artists as Tom Rush, Gordon Lightfoot and Eric Andersen in his work. Added to this is the melodic sophistication of a Jimmy Webb or a Paul Simon, as well as a spare but telling lyric approach. “I admire songwriters like Woody Guthrie and poets like Robert Frost because they created functional art,” he says. “Too much music today is just for the singer, not for Everyman. I think of my work as a "Please Touch‟ museum – I want my songs to be sung until they‟re worn out.”

Also crucial to Craig‟s art is his virtuosic guitar work, interweaving folk, blues, country and ragtime influences into a unique whole: “The guitar isn‟t just an accompanying instrument for me – sometimes it‟s the front man and my voice is the accompanist.”

A Craig Bickhardt live set is a mix of absurd anecdotes and personal confessions, accompanying a well-stocked bag of original tunes and the occasional choice cover. His decades in music have given his performances the depth of experience – his love songs seem sweeter and more poignant, his story-song narratives more true-to-life than they could have in the past.

“I think people come to my shows to be reminded that there‟s something profound in the small stuff we experience every day,” he says. “My goal is to get an audience to look deeper at the things we all take for granted.”

Craig Bickhardt travels light to his gigs – but he brings a great deal to the stage. He combines a seasoned troubadour‟s easy command of his art with a beginner‟s passion to win over his next audience and top his next song. The stories of his lifetime are simply too good not to share.
