Think John Denver meets the Indigo Girls!!

Street Corner Choir is the songwriting duo of Lezlie Revelle and David Hakan. An evening of Street Corner Choir music includes their quiet love songs, story songs that pull you in, and their signature, up-tempo songs that rise to a crescendo for that sixties style big finish. Through them all are woven harmonies that lift each song out of the ordinary.

Lezlie Revelle comes from a family where music was the second language. Since she was old enough to walk and sing, she has performed in choirs, variety shows, theatre productions, coffee houses, fairs, and festivals. Revelle blends her songwriting talents with a roots rock/folk feel, a buoyant personality, and an occasional Celtic flair. As a songwriter, playwright, and poet Revelle shares stories of the human condition and the divinity to be found in all of us. all.www.myspace.com/lezlierevelle

David Hakan is a native of Kansas City who has been performing his original music for many years. He writes and sings Americana, folk rock, political music, and story songs about friends and family. In 1992 Hakan cofounded the Songwriters Circle of Kansas City, which remains the KC metropolitan area’s premier organization for showcasing and supporting singer/songwriters. Hakan has produced six CDs of original music, including Warning Bell: Songs for America, which was released in 2008. www.davidhakan.com

Equal parts message and magic, Street Corner Choir’s music is passionate and evocative. The songs are funny and tender, powerful and poignant, an offering of love songs, ghost stories, and folk rock interlaced with harmonies that will fill you up and leave you wanting more.

A fan said, “Street Corner Choir’s music is the song you can’t stop humming – whichever song grabbed you the night before.”

Mark Stuart will spend 2016 doing what he has always done. He will tour full-time as a musical artist, bringing his years of experience to the stage. Onstage, his focus is on the songs he has penned and recorded, delivered with a soulful singing voice and highly memorable guitar playing. After many years on the Americana/Folk circuit, Stuart has cultivated a very rounded performance. His show consists of storytelling, flashy guitar “chops”, and songs that seem to draw from his rock, blues, country, and folk music roots. Mostly, this artist from Tennessee has toured solo or in a notable duo with his wife (“Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart”). There were stints along the way as a sideman, though (Steve Forbert, Freddy Fender, Steve Earle, Joan Baez). If placed on the bill with a contemporary artist he is usually asked to play guitar on their portion of the show. Just ask Jason Ringenberg, Ray Wylie Hubbard, or Jimmy LaFave. One can find Mark Stuart on any given night in a small theater, coffeehouse, house concert, festival stage, club, church auditorium, etc. giving it his all. Aside from that, he could be instructing at a guitar clinic, songwriting workshop, or playing on someone’s recording session. As co-owner of Gearle Records he has produced or co-produced many albums. Stuart’s career has repeatedly taken him to all of the USA, Canada, Europe, and the United Kingdom, and, has spanned several decades.
