Faye & Scott, the hosts of Harmony House will provide bottomless cups of coffee, tea, or herbal fruit punches for guests, along with cheese and crackers for munchies.  At this house concert, guests are asked to bring a finger food to share with others attending the concert.  There will be tables in both the dining room and the adjoining bedroom for all these "goodies".  A basket will be placed on the breakfast room table for any optional $1 cash donations to help host defray costs. No Potluck Dinner after the show.  Faye & Scott will treat the entertainers to dinner, and guests are welcome to stick around and have a Song Circle in the Dining Room.  Bring your instruments, voices, or just ears to listen.  Andrew & Jeannie will be spending the night at Wildscape Acres, so they'll probably join in, if invited to do so.

Bio of Hardin Burns:

Guitarist Andrew Hardin and vocalist Jeannie Burns have teamed up to write, record, and perform as Hardin Burns. After meeting at Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in 2009, the two began writing what would eventually become their self-released debut recording Lounge in 2012.

Lounge includes nine original songs and a cover of George Harrison's "Beware Of Darkness." The duo have also recorded a two-song CD of a new original, "Ache," and Howlin' Wolf's classic "Smokestack Lightning." Acoustic Guitar Magazine included Lounge on its Essential Acoustic Albums list for 2012 and called it "...an addictive set of earthy, hook-filled melodies, stunning harmonies, and graceful virtuosity on acoustic and electric guitars."

In April 2014 , the duo recorded their second collection, entitled Down The Deep Well which will be released in the fall. Co-produced by Gabe Rhodes in Spicewood, Texas, the recording features legendary drummer Dony Wynn and upright bassist David Carroll.

Andrew Hardin lives outside of Austin, Texas, and is best known for his long association with songwriter Tom Russell. He has also performed and recorded with such artists as Jimmy LaFave, Eliza Gilkyson, Malcolm Holcombe, and Joel Guzman. He has released four solo albums of instrumental guitar music and a new retrospective entitled Lost Pines featuring noted guitarists Albert Lee and Amos Garrett.
