Steve SeskinTop songwriter Steve Seskin shares the stage with fresh young songwriting talent Liz Longley for an “in the round” evening of heart-tugging music and hilarious stories.

Steve, a Freight favorite since the 1970s, has enjoyed tremendous success in Nashville, with a boatload of songs recorded by Tim McGraw, Neal McCoy, John Michael Montgomery, Kenny Chesney, Collin Raye, Peter Frampton, Waylon Jennings, Alabama, Mark Wills, and Peter Paul & Mary. His song “Don't Laugh At Me,” co-written with Allen Shamblin, was a finalist for the Country Music Awards Song of the Year in 1999 and has spurred an entire tolerance movement, launched by the Don't Laugh at Me Project. Steve grew up in New York and currently lives just up the road in Richmond. He “has the gift of song,” says the San Francisco Chronicle. “His voice has a natural lilt that can’t be learned. The combination of musicianship and repertoire make for a rich and satisfying musical experience.”

Liz LongleyLiz, a Philadelphia native now based in Nashville, has won several songwriting competitions since graduating from Boston’s Berklee College of Music, including the BMI John Lennon Songwriting Scholarship Competition, the International Acoustic Music Awards, and the Rocky Mountain Folk Fest Songwriting Competition. Sirius XM Radio named her one of their Coffee House Discoveries of 2011 and the Washington Post has declared that she’s “destined for a larger audience.” She’s about to release her fourth album, and the first single, “This Is Not the End,” was featured on the Lifetime series, Army Wives. The website Dig Boston calls her “a rising acoustic sensation.”
