Elk Run Winery – July 4

F.A.M.E. member Avery Powers is 17 years old and has been writing songs for almost 10 years. She has been playing piano since she was 7 and recently started teaching herself guitar. You can find more of her music on YouTube or at, which focuses on using original songs for mental health awareness. In the fall, Avery will be starting college at Northwestern University in Chicago.


F.A.M.E. member Ed Haser is a “vintage” finger style guitarist, mostly learned from the playing of the artists of the 1950s/1960s folk revival, i.e., an “old folkie”, with some classical techniques mixed in. The songs he plays are an eclectic collection of music from the 1920s through today that he finds interesting/fun to finger-pick.
John Barrick, a new member of F.A.M.E.,  plays acoustic guitar covers (with a lack of finesse) in bars. In fact sometimes it’s BarBārrick!
F.A.M.E. member Joe Ginorio – Singer / Songwriter – composes what he calls Easy Listening – Folk.Americana. His music is about reflecting on events in his life such as walking 450 miles on the Camino de Santiago, Finding Your Truth, Sensing peace in the falling rain, and honoring our mothers.
Joe has produced an EP of 5 songs found on his website.
F.A.M.E. Member Stephen Darnell is a spiritual and passionate composer and performer of the Native American-style flute, Irish Whistle, Didgeridoo, and other world instruments, whose music is a place of peace, a place of rest, and a place for coming home.
