Steve SeskinThree friends—top songwriters all—bring their impressive repertoires to the Freight for an "in-the-round" evening of hilarious stories and superlative music.

An inspiring performer and one of today’s most successful songwriters, Steve Seskin has been a Freight favorite since the 1970s. A New York native and graduate of the city’s famous High School of Performing Arts, he currently resides in Richmond, CA. While Steve’s songs—an eclectic blend of humor and pathos, love songs and looney tunes—have been covered by scores of famed artists (John Michael Montgomery, Waylon Jennings, and Tim McGraw, to name but a few), there is nothing like seeing Steve cast his spell in live performance. In addition to his career as a top songwriter, Steve has also seen his song "Don’t Laugh at Me" (co-written with Allen Shamblin) inspire the development of a character and anti-bullying education curriculum in thousands of elementary schools across the country.

Craig CarothersCraig Carothers' intelligent love songs, with their memorable blend of weary cynicism and heart-on-sleeve romanticism, have won him a solid place among Nashville's songwriters, with tunes recorded by folks like Trisha Yearwood and Kathy Mattea. As a singer-songwriter Craig has played nightclubs and concerts from Los Angeles to Stockholm for the past two decades. In the last few years alone he's driven 80,000 miles to play in more than 50 cities in 20 states; when you figure in the airplanes and rental cars, it adds up to a lot of scenery and a lot of songs.
 
Don HenryThe wry, engaging song-stories written by Don Henry tend to be both funny and thought-provoking, and he sings them with extraordinary tenderness, humor, and sincerity. An award-winning songwriter (he co-wrote Kathy Mattea's Grammy-winning hit, "Where've You Been"), Don populates his tunes with richly etched characters, each with an engrossing story to tell that is full of unexpected twists and moments of revelation.
