This is an all-women event and all women are welcome: an upbeat

enjoy fantastic entertainment.
Our feature will be the fabulous RONNDA CADLE, the stunning solo
acoustic guitar artist many of you heard for 5 minutes last season
and raved about. With the melodic hooks she coaxes from her guitar,
she has shared the stage with many other well-known musicians
including Sarah Bettens, Al Petteway, Atlanta Rhythm Section, John
Jorgenson, Patty Larkin and 2003 American Music Award Winner, Moe
Loughran. Ronnda's style fuses heartfelt emotional content with
masterful guitar work. Cadle is in the process of recording her
third release with former Windham Hill Founder/Producer William
Ackerman and engineer Corin Nelsen. Her latest release 'After' with
the String Poets has been featured on the Public Radio International
program Echoes playlist and has had several songs selected for the
PBS television program and online site Roadtrip Nation.
AND...the heart and soul of Third Thursday: YOU, either as performer
or audience member. Drop in for some laughs, songs, poems, prose,
instruments, spoken word, and any other talents you have. Each
