Review for the performers. 

Webb Barringer – Singer Songwriter
"Barringer’s lyrical skills are masterful and his songs frequently delve into the realm of the broken and damaged people of the world (aren’t we all, to some degree?) yet there remains an element of hope. The broken and damaged people of the world can heal, given time and inclination. That’s just how life is, and at the end of the day, it’s a pretty fine message." -Marc Michael (The Pulse Chattanooga's Weekly Alternative) 

Krystye Dalton – Singer Songwriter
A rootsy rock soul explosion. Originally from Phil Campbell, Al., Krystye grew up listening to the famous sultry sounds of Muscle Shoals recording artist such as Aretha Franklin, Etta James, The Rolling Stones and The Wicked Wilson Pickett. With her energetic stage antics and prolific song writing she mesmerizes audiences of all ages with her sweat and soul. 

Clifford Brooks - Poet
Clifford Brooks was born in Athens, Ga. His first poetry collection, The Draw of Broken Eyes, Whirling Metaphysics, nominated for the 2013 Georgia Author of the Year Award in Poetry, will be re-issued by Kudzu Leaf Press in 2018. His full-length collection Athena Departs: Gospel of a Man Apart as well as his limited-edition poetry chapbook Exiles of Eden were published in 2017, also by Kudzu Leaf Press. Clifford is the founder of The Southern Collective Experience, a cooperative of writers, musicians and visual artists, which publishes the journal The Blue Mountain Review and hosts the
radio show Dante’s Old South. He currently lives in northwest Georgia and is pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing at Reinhardt University.
