FRIDAY: West Of Aldine

SATURDAY: Caleb Hawley

It's almost too easy for Caleb Hawley to win over an audience. With his lightning guitar licks, irreverent choice of covers (Spice Girls?), and a voice - from soothing folk to powerhouse soul - that placed him in the final 50 on American Idol (2011), the shaggy-haired, blue-eyed soul singer is irresistible. So irresistible, that it's easy to overlook the power and truth in his songwriting. Raised outside Minneapolis, Caleb discovered his songwriting voice after earning a degree in jazz composition. Based in New York City since 2007, his self-described "folk infused rock 'n' soul" is sweeping songwriting contests across the country.

SUNDAY: Johnny Flynn

One of the UK's premiere songwriting talents, Johnny Flynn's first two albums earned praise from Rolling Stone's David Fricke, spots on NPR's All Things Considered and World Café, and sold out tours all over the world. Johnny is also an accomplished actor, with recent turns at Shakespeare's Globe Theater in London, and in plays such as Jerusalem and The Heretic and the Low Road. Early next year he'll co-star alongside Anne Hathaway in the new feature film Song One.
