JOE UEHLEIN and the U-LINERS
Sweet Lorain CD Release Concert
The U-Liners play a wide variety of music in the roots-rock and Americana genres including country, rock, folk, bluegrass, rock’n roll, swing, folk-rock, country-rock, blues, rhythm & blues, soul, and more. The U-Liners have a deep and eclectic repertoire ideal for dancing or listening. The U-Liners have performed at the Rock and Roll hall of Fame in Cleveland, the Knitting Factory and the Mercury Ballroom in NYC, Bally’s in Las Vegas, at the AFL-CIO, SEIU, and all of DC’s finest venues, including The Birchmere with Pete Seeger, The Black Cat, the Silver Theater, and Jammin’ Java with Tom Morello and Boots Riley, The IOTA Club, Madams Organ, the State theater, the Mansion on O St., the Millennium Arts Center (w/ Lester Chambers), the old Half Moon BBQ, and many others. A rare specialty of this group includes songs of hope, peace, justice, the environment, and worker’s rights; and come from the band’s belief that we can make the world a better place.
The U-Liners are Avril Smith , Electric Guitar and Vocals; Joe Uehlein, Acoustic Guitar and Vocals; Larry Ferguson, Drums and Percussion; Jessica Lake, Vocals; Barry Warsaw, Bass; and Tom Espinola, Mandolin.
We are excited that Rickie Simpkins, Virginia Folk Music Hall of Fame inductee and multiple award winning fiddle player, will be joining Joe and the U-liners for this special show. Rickie is a member of the Seldom Scene, and has toured extensively with Emmylou Harris and Her Red Dirt Boys.
Whether with his band, The U-Liners, or as a solo artist, Joe’s concerts always include a wide and deep presentation of Americana and roots-Rock music, including folk, rock’n roll, bluegrass, country, soul, and more. But his solo shows take on a more intimate feel, talking more about music, politics, and the human spirit.
Advance reservations close at 4:00 p.m. on the day of the show, or when the show sells out.

We invite you to enjoy delicious refreshments from the Cafe at Carroll Cafe available before the show and at the intermission. A changing choice of savories enough for a light meal, topped off with fabulous desserts and beverages will add to the happiness of the concert experience!
