In September, WVTF ’s “Roots Down” host Luke Church gathered four area songwriters—David Tewksbury and Willie DE of Charlottesville met Roanoke’s Phil Norman and Corey Hunley in a live show that united the performers through instant chemistry. In a musical equivalent of finishing each other’s sentences, the session found the musicians harmonizing, swapping verses and improvising solos so naturally that they booked another set of performances together almost immediately.

Saturday, February 18. $5, 8pm. The Ante Room, 219 Water St. 284-8561.
