Three stellar Bay Area songcrafters grace our stage tonight!

Smithsonian Folkways artist Jim Bruno has spent the past three decades performing and writing intelligent, compelling songs, which have been recorded by the likes of Shawn Colvin, Mary Lou Lord, and Cliff Eberhardt. Jim has performed across the U.S. and in Europe, and currently teaches songwriting at the Freight & Salvage School of Music. Tonight he spotlights tunes from his new CD, alright, alright.

The songs of Bonnie Hayes have always been extraordinary, from post-punk anthem "Shelly's Boyfriend" to "Have A Heart" and "Love Letter," which helped restore Bonnie Raitt to superstardom. While she's also written songs for artists as diverse as Robert Cray, Adam Ant, David Crosby, and Cher, in her own performances Bonnie infuses each tune with uncompromising attitude: "I reject the idea that music has to be either smart or kickass—why not both?"

A tireless social justice advocate and a political singer-songwriter extraordinaire, Carol Denney has regaled the Freight audience with many an enlightening evening over the past few decades. Winner of the East Bay Express' readers' poll for "Best Solo Performer" in 2002, Carol always brims with quick wit and invigorating tunes.
