Chris released his first CD in 2007 and more recently, “The Invisible World” in 2014, and has been recognized on numerous occasions for his contributions to the Native American music industry. The Native American flute is an amazing instrument and will be played by a real expert.
Sunday, July 16: Mariah Van Kleef (guitar and vocals) wanted to be a singer for as long as she can remember. She became interested in the guitar when the legendary Doc Watson told her she had the hands of a musician. She he played her first gig at the Soda Shop in Greenville, SC and is a regular performer at the Garden Cafe in York, SC. Mariah has become a local favorite, performing at other local venues as well as private functions.
Sunday, July 23: Danny Scruggs and Crystal Plough (guitar and vocals) are two talented locals who have turned into a performing duo whose voices blend as well as they solo. You will hear a wide variety of styles of music–pop, folk, Americana, blues, something for everyone. these two have an easy style and connect well with listeners. Former Cleveland Community College students may remember Danny from the Computer Science faculty where he taught for many years.

He plays blues-ey/jazzy electric type music with the help of his”imaginary friends,” a looper pedal and other electronic enhancements. If you listen to David with your eyes closed, you will likely think you are listening to a trio or small group rather than a solo musician.
