Come join two fantastic singer songwriters for our third and final Songwriter Showcase and Listening Room of the fall Season. Hosted by touring singer/songwriter, honky tonk artist and UNM Music Professor Kristina Jacobsen, join us for beautiful tunes in an intimate, acoustic setting. Tuesday, November 14th, 7-8:45pm.

 Featuring sets and original songs by MIchael Sheppard & Luke Gullickson. 

Luke Gullickson is a musician and writer based in New Mexico. His projects stretch from indie-folk songcraft toward broader and quieter forms of chamber music inspired by place, geography, language, literature, shamanism, and divination. The Chicago Tribune described his recent music as "a sonic wash of various intensities and allusions.” Luke plays piano and guitar with the infamous Grant Wallace Band (“spidery original bluegrass” — Steve Smith, New York Times) and releases peripatetic avant-troubadour songs under his own name and the moniker Golconda ("charmingly mysterious songs" — Will Robin, Bandcamp).​ He is also proprietor and cartographer-in-chief of Desert Rhodes, a roving outdoor piano sketchbook and inclusive microcommissioning project. An occasional theater music director and erstwhile wilderness guide, Luke holds an MM in composition from the University of Texas at Austin and is currently doing graduate work in piano at the University of New Mexico." 

"Through the 90’s Santa Fe based Michael Evan Sheppard fronted the fusion band Swivel. Michael then brought his vocals, finger style guitar and Dobro work to the Americana group The Propellers, along with Santa Fe musicians Cris Phillips (Cafe Mocha), Zeke Severtson (Bill Hearne Trio), and Dave Devlin (Higher Ground, Bootleg Prophets). The Propellers enjoyed the stages of both the Albuquerque Folk Fest and the Durango Meltdown. Michael has also performed in folk, blues, and bluegrass duos with Richard Hardy and Eric Carlson (Paw Coal and the Clunkers)."
