Experience an unforgettable evening that dives deep into the heart of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s rich musical tapestry. Immerse yourself in the captivating stories and melodies of three remarkable local artists, each with a uniquely fascinating journey to share.

Meet Kristi Lei, a dynamic 20-something folk-Americana music teacher who has taken her talents all the way to the Czech Republic, blending her roots with a global perspective. Then there’s Dave Brown, a long-haired, harmonica-playing bluegrass guitarist whose soulful songwriting captures the essence of life’s highs and lows. Finally, be enchanted by Randy Light, a seasoned 70s rock troubadour who finds his true self strumming his guitar in the back of a van, living the ultimate musical gypsy life.

Join us for an evening where tales, laughter, and music intertwine seamlessly. These three musicians, alongside their talented friends (including The LAKESIDE RAMBLERS), will guide you through a rich landscape of Americana roots, each song a memory, each story a journey. Don’t miss this chance to witness the magic of KRISTI LEI, DAVE BROWN, and RANDY LIGHT as they bring their diverse life stories to life through the power of music. It’s not just a concert—it’s an exploration of life, heritage, and the universal language of song.

Kristi Lei is an Americana, singer-songwriter from Northeastern, PA, currently living in Brno, Czech Republic. She has been writing music since she was 16 and has loved being on stages long before them, performing on radio stations, folk festivals, and music venues across Pennsylvania and North Carolina. After graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill, Kristi decided to take a life pivot, moving to the Czech Republic. There, she recorded her first EP, "Becoming Memories", and traveled Europe, making more stories to write her songs about. By day, Kristi is a primary music teacher at the International School of Brno, and by night, she lives and breathes music, also part of two bands: Band of Heysek, a blues band, and Tilted Squares, a pop-folk band.
DAVE BROWN is a PA-based folksinger/songwriter. Wielding a guitar over his shoulder and harmonica around his neck, Dave can usually be found pickin' + singin' with his self-proclaimed "browngrass" band, THE DISHONEST FIDDLERS.
RANDY LIGHT (aka Pocono Slim) is a singer-songwriter that uses his strong guitar skills and musical sensibility in crafting songs about life, love, animals, and humor. Randy has played lead guitar in many bands keeping in mind his bluegrass and honky tonk roots which are never far from the listener’s ears.
