"Songwriters and Storytellers"
Join us for an incredible night of music and storytelling by Nashville Music Hall of Fame writer Thom Schuyler, hit songwriter Craig Bickhardt and local favorite singer/songwriter Sol Knopf.

Thom Schuyler's songs have been recorded by over 200 various artists. His accomplishments are many and his golden touch shines through on memorable hits like “Love Will Turn You Around” by Kenny Rogers, “16th Avenue” (made popular by Lacy J. Dalton) and many others.

In the 1980's Thom founded the trio S-K-O (Originally known as Schuyler, Knobloch & Overstreet). and charted 7 singles including the Number 1 hit “Baby's Got a New Baby”.

Throughout the years Thom Schuyler has touched many lives, not only as an incredible writer, but as chairman of the Country Music Association and as the head of RCA Records' Nashville division. In that position, Thom played a significant role in signing Kenny Chesney, Lonestar, Martina McBride and Sara Evans.

Thom's songs will touch you down deep and his quick wit will leave you smiling long after the show is over.

Craig Bickhardt's songs have been recorded by legends like BB King, Johnny Cash, Martina McBride, The Judds, Allison Krauss and many more. He has penned four #1 hits and nine top ten hits. Craig is a passionate performer, virtuoso guitar player and fabulous singer. He too, has some of the funniest stories to share about his 2 decades plus as one of Nashville's top writers. But most of all, it is the humanity of Craig's songs and the brilliant crafting of his lyrics that will leave you in awe of his talent.

Sol Knopf is a local Delaware favorite known for his distinctive baritone voice and timeless original songs. In 2014 Sol's “My Baby Girl” became one of the most requested father/daughter dance songs at weddings across the United States.
