Opening our 15th Season - Melissa Greener

Friends of FHC - Thank you for all your support over the years!   We will open our 15th season up here on the hill with a treasure from Nashville, Melissa Greener.  Melissa is an incredibly skilled guitarist with equally impressive songwriting capabilities. 

Nashville based Americana artist Melissa Greener is a singer, songwriter and guitarist of the highest order.  Her songs summon their truth from mountain ranges, holy places, deserts, oceans and forests, or the lonely stretch of blacktop from Detroit to Austin.  Impressive vocal chops wrap quirkily crafted narrative that “paints superb portraits of the human condition" (Maverick Music Magazine -UK).  “Words for Greener are pigments”, finely placed and skipped like stones across the surface of the deep-pocket groove of her raucous electric tremolo guitar. 

Greener grew up in Detroit with an alluring cacophony of Mo-town, standard torch ballads, and 1960’s Laurel Canyon records. The unique brew emerged as the fermentation of a classically trained soprano mother, who sang in the lounge of the Playboy Club, and a politically bent hippie father.  She savored the lyrical stylings of modernist poets whose books she discovered in her junior high school days.  Greener muses, “I had an English teacher in the seventh grade who introduced us to poetry.  I think it back-fired on him, because I would skip class to hide out in the library reading Dylan Thomas, Robert Service, Dickenson and Yeats.”

We're anxious to get this next season up and running!   Come join us...
