Four St. Louis-based singers and songwriters come together to harmonize, pick, strum and share songs during this special, acoustic, in-the-round session.

Kicking off the session, R. Scott Bryan delivers a playful, blues tune, perhaps most suited to a summer afternoon, but still swinging through the coldest of months. A member of Fairchild and frequent collaborator with Michele Isam, Dave Torretta sings with a scuffed-up sweetness in his voice, while Billy Engel brings more of a pop sensibility to the road song "She'll Fly Away." Finally Isam turns her soaring alto towards a classic river song, as her cohorts in acoustic music keep the groove going around her.

The four musicians appear in a round-robin concert at the Chapel in St. Louis on January 28.
