“The Weary Ramblers will break your heart and change your life with original songs that cut to the marrow … ” — Fairfield Muse

Newly formed Iowa folk duo, Weary Ramblers bring years of experience to the stage with award-winning songwriting and chemistry. Chad Elliott and Kathryn Fox showcase multi-instrumental performances with tight harmonies and great storytelling.

Chad Elliott blends folk roots and soulful writing to deliver an original sound with over two decades of being on the road.. Elliott is lauded as “Iowa’s Renaissance man” by Culture Buzz Magazine. He has penned more than 1,500 songs in his career while also cultivating his skills as a painter, sculptor, illustrator and author. Elliott’s career demonstrates a love of folk, roots and singer-songwriter music. He has worked with and shared the stage with artists of the highest caliber, including Odetta, Tom Paxton, Loudon Wainwright III, Ruthie Foster, Greg Brown, Bo Ramsey, etc.

“That man’s music is as honest as was Woody Guthrie’s.” – Smithsonian Folkways Recordings

Deemed “fiddler extraordinaire” in Cityview Magazine, Kathryn Fox is a DownBeat award winning artist. She played on the Grammy-nominated track “All My Tomorrows” with Kate McGarry. Kathryn toured internationally with fiddle troupe, Barrage 8, with shows in Europe, the U.S. and Canada.

“When listening to Fox for the first time, one might wonder, how can a young woman make a violin sound so good?” — Cityview Magazine


Kirstie Lynn & Galen Clark (opening)

Kirstie Lynn and Galen Clark at GGFH 2024

At the confluence of Kirstie Lynn’s magnetic voice and Galen Clark’s innovative harmonies comes a rich nostalgia longing for understanding. Nature-inspired poetry and lush stringed accompaniment offer an introspective lens into the familiar contradiction of the trials and triumphs of life.
The intimate style of the duo’s performance envelops audiences in dreamlike tapestries spanning tales of melancholy, wanderlust, and memories of time and place.

The two met while attending Shenandoah Conservatory, Lynn pursuing a degree in Opera and Voice Performance and Clark a degree in Music Production and Recording Technologies, and have remained friends ever since. After a serendipitous reunion in Kansas City back in 2020, these old friends decided to pursue their folk
music endeavors together.



Where is the Green Guitar Folk House?

Green Guitar Folk House events are sponsored by Shawnee Mission Unitarian Universalist Church and held in its sanctuary, next to the railroad tracks in old downtown Lenexa, Kansas.

If you are looking for the “church” look for a school! SMUUCh is in a converted elementary school (yay recycling!) The sanctuary — you might notice — is in a beautiful converted, former school gymnasium.

Although our venue is sponsored by SMUUCh, it is not a church event. 

The series is open to the public. Youth are welcome to attend. These are all-ages shows.
