Songs from the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s at Hungry Ear, Saturday

2014 July 30

Guitarist Tom Godfrey and jazz singer Lori Guy will perform at the Hungry Ear Coffee House Saturday, August 2. Other artists include acoustic songwriter Wil Hodge and down-home country and gospel vocalist Keren Leppo.

Keren Leppo’s sweet and rollicking down-home sound is rooted in a rich history of gospel, country, rock n roll, bluegrass, blues and soul.  I’m no country fan, but whatever she’s singing, I like, I like!

Wil Hodge showcases both his acoustic and electric guitar talents along with his vocal storytelling style that crosses through country, rock and R&B.

Godfrey and Guy, who play regularly at the Noosh in Johns Creek, will be accompanied by Robert Dickson on Bass, and Reed Lukat on Tenor Sax.

All three acts play this Saturday, Aug. 2 at 8 p.m.

The Hungry Ear (www.HungryEarCoffeeHouse.com) is an outreach program of the Northwest Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 1025 Mt. Vernon Highway NW in Sandy Springs, Georgia. NWUUC promotes religious freedom, spiritual growth and ethical action in a world where racial, cultural and religious diversity is a reality. Concerts are held on the first Saturday of every month beginning at 8PM, and regularly feature a lineup of nationally acclaimed folk, country, jazz and vocal artists. General admission seating is $5, and if you have one on hand, a can of food for the homeless.

    I started going to the Hungry Ear last year and can’t believe what a great value and exceptional music experience this is, every time. Bob Bakert does a fantastic job of bringing in some national acts as well as the best-of-the-best local. Bring your own wine and enjoy the delicious desserts they have for sale at the coffee bar. It’s a hidden gem in the trees.
