The Showcase – Round 4 – Featuring Hannah Bingman & Sweetlife
April 13, 2016 @ 7:00 pm
The showcase returns this month with two amazing songwriting forces! Join Hannah Bingman, Sweetlife Music, and Music For Everyone at Tellus360 for “Round 4” of MFE Presents: The Showcase.
This showcase is a great opportunity for musician to bring some fresh material in front of objective ears and professional songwriters. While the showcase is a great way for musicians to hone their songwriting skills, it is also a yearlong competition. The four artists who bring in the largest audiences will have the opportunity to perform at the October showcase, which is also a benefit for MFE! So break out those axes, dust off the songwriting pad, tune up, and get on down to Tellus360 for the MFE Singer-Songwriter nights!

April 20 — Hannah Bingman
May 18 — Steve Ward
June 15 — Butch Zito
July 20 — Justin Angelo

September 21 — Melissa Leo

You don’t have to be a musician to attend the singer-songwriter nights just a music lover. Come support local music at its roots and have a great time while doing so!

MATT & CAROL are married best-friends entertaining and touching lives with a guitar and two voices for over 25 years.
Since the late 1980s, their music has carried audiences through laughter and tears, telling stories and moving them closer to the ones they love. Carol’s voice calls the listener back to the days of Amy Grant, Karen Carpenter and Patsy Cline, while
Matt’s guitar provides a musical foundation built on layers of country, folk, and jazz. Smooth, sparkling harmonies mix with powerful emotion to breathe new life into modern hits, traditional standards, hymns, and their own heart-warming songs celebrating real life and real love.
They’ve appeared in concert from New Jersey to Nashville and shared stages with americana group The Black Lilies,
Nashville country singer Buck McCoy, cigarbox guitar bluesmen Shane Speal & Glenn Kaiser, and radio personality/comedian Earl David Reed.
They’ve performed for the Susquehanna Folk Music Society and the York Fair, on Fox 43’s Music Monday,
CBS 21’s Morning News, FM90.3 WJTL, AM730 WEEU, and appeared in print and online at Lancaster County Woman magazine, the York Daily Record, and more.
They average 300+ events each year at all types of venues and events, including YorkFest Fine Arts Festival,
Ocean Grove (New Jersey) Concert Series, National Day of Prayer events, ORVIS Stores (Virginia) grand opening,
chapel services for the National Street Rod Association, and fundraisers for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life,
