This unique and intimate series hosted by Earthwork Music artist Nicholas James Thomasma features a small group of songwriters trading songs and stories.
Stories. Songs. Songtellers. It’s simple, really. Singer songwriter and host Nicholas James Thomasma invites 2 other songwriters on stage to take turns telling stories and singing their songs. The performers get the opportunity to share the deeper meanings behind the songs with an actively listening audience. The audience is treated to an intimate look into the songwriting process in a pristine listening environment. It’s a unique and memorable experience every time. The shows take place on the last Sunday of the month Nov-April at the new Listening Room in Grand Rapids, MI.

Although based in Missouri, Bombara has spent much of her adulthood on the road, carving out her own award-winning mix of vintage folk and electric roots-rock. She’s been a solo artist, a bandleader, and an occasional side musician for other artists. With Evergreen, her most recent album, Bombara resumes her role as the leader of an amplified Americana band.

Dan Rickabus is a professional drummer, educator, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, producer, sound engineer and community organizer living in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
