Tonight Pick n' Squeezeless

Andy Pagel and Kate Aitken will be performing tonight at Stumpjack. 8:00pm. You know Andy from his performances her with brother Greg, as Pick n' Squeeze. Tonight the lovely Kate Aitken will be taking Greg's place (which now makes the night as visually appealing as it is will be musically).

This weekend's beer special: Your second bottle is half-price.

Come on down and unwind with us after a long week.

Stumpjack closed until Friday

Hi everyone! Stumpjack will be closed this week until Friday afternoon as Kim and I recharge the batteries up north.Join us Friday night for more great music with Doc Retzinger. Those of you who have heard Doc either by himself or with Joe LaForce and Mark Kimmes know how wonderful he is. Then on Saturday night Andy Pagel of Pick & Squeeze will be here with Kate Aitken...Andy has performed with us several times and it's always a treat, but this will be Kate's first time and we're excited about that. Both Friday and Saturday nights' music start at 8pm. I also have to apologize for the recent spate of blog posts that have been little more than event announcements. It's been so crazy leading up to Ethnic Fest that that's all I've really had time for. But when we return from our little hiatus we will get back to the rambling, nonsensical posts you're used to receiving from me.

Here's a few images from this morning at the cottage too.

Closed Friday until Pato's gig

Thirsty Thursday: Emily White TONIGHT

We're very excited to have Emily White kick off her fall tour tonight at Stumpjack. Emily is coming up from Chicago with Tyler Lyle to perform at the Stump around 7pm.
Born and brought up in Memphis, Tennessee on a healthy diet of Keith Sykes' Songwriters' Nights, Emily White learned the appeal of acoustic music early. She seems to have a love of the genre embedded in her DNA somewhere, and while growing up she took as much of an interest studying the singer-songwriters and blues musicians playing in the parks on Beale Street as she did listening to New Kids on the Block and MC Hammer. It was on that legendary street that Emily learned the intimacy and personal connection between artist and listener that acoustic music can create. It wasn't long before Emily knew she wanted to create the same connections by writing original music. Check out more of Emily at

Emily will start at around 7:00pm

Tonight's Thirsty Thursday special: Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat Ale $3.50 bottle.

Simply put, it is two guitars, an amazing voice, and a bunch of great stories about life!

Shelly's blogsite

Check out our friend Shelly Katzung's blog Accentuate n' Ink about stamping and hand made greetings cards. Shelly makes the cards we sell at Stumpjack, as well as cards for the Washington House (featuring the ice cream sundae theme...invented in TR, you know). Shelly's cards are great and her blogsite has some cool images of some of her work.
