BOMBADILS

For over five years, rising folk-stars The Bombadils have been enchanting audiences around the world with their unique fusion of traditional, world and progressive folk.

Endearingly described as “chamber folk,” the group of cinematic storytellers have intertwined their musical chops rooted in classical and jazz music (all trained at Montreal’s esteemed McGill University) around an approachable performance style that takes listeners on a journey through history and towards the future of Canadian folk.

Each hailing from their own unique corner of Canada, group members Sarah Frank (fiddle, banjo, vocals), Luke Fraser (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Alan Mackie (bass, vocals) and Anh Phung (flutes, harmonica, vocals), first bonded over a shared curiosity and love of traditional music – but have since solidified their friendship with over 50,000 kilometers of touring and countless performances together.

“The Bombadils have all the elements of a great band – a high level of musical proficiency, deep respect for the traditional roots of their material and an engaging repertoire which holds the attention of the listener from beginning to end.”
- Amy Gajadhar, Canadian Folk Music magazine

SHAWNA CASPI

“The power of one person and one instrument – engaging and exciting in itself. I believe that’s the root of folk music”.

With her third album, Apartments For Lovers, Shawna Caspi taps right into those folk roots, stripping away the session musicians and elaborate arrangements of her previous records in favour of a simple, authentic sound – her solo guitar and voice. The result is a collection of songs that is close-up and honest, showcasing her warm vocals, classically-trained fingerstyle guitar playing, and intimate songwriting in a genuine, powerful way.

On Apartments For Lovers, Shawna creates delicate, quiet moments that are vulnerable and accessible even when she’s writing about someone else. Her songs are snapshots – moments that may appear small, but which subtly carry weight and offer greater depth thanks to her well-crafted lyrics.

“Some musicians make songwriting sound less of a craft and more of a life affirming obsession. Caspi’s compositions stand out as beautiful, complex and intricate…” – NOW Magazine, NXNE preview

For 15 years, Shawna has been playing the guitar she bought at the Ottawa Folklore Centre, one of Canada’s best loved music stores. This cherished instrument has accompanied her on tour throughout Canada and the United States, where she has played festivals including the Blue Skies Music Festival, the Summerfolk Festival, the Deep Roots Music Festival, and the Ottawa Grassroots Festival. It was also her constant companion as she played on the long haul trains between Montreal and Halifax and between Vancouver and Toronto as part of the VIA Rail On Board Entertainment Program.

Shawna’s Canadian folk roots are an intrinsic part of who she is. In fact, Shawna as a solo musician is exactly who she is as a person – warm, inviting, a storyteller, a traveller, an authentic artist. “And at the heart of everything”, she says, “I’m just a really big music fan”.

HARVEY REID

Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Harvey Reid is most widely known for his peerless acoustic fingerstyle guitar work, but is also a former bluegrass picker, a versatile and engaging singer, a powerful lyricist, a solid mandolin and bouzouki player, and a seasoned performer and entertainer. His 6-string banjo work is unmatched, and he is certainly among the best autoharp players ever. Reid has honed his craft over the last 40 years in countless clubs, festivals, streetcorners, cafes, coffeehouses and concert halls across the nation, and absorbed a vast repertoire of American music and woven it into his own colorful, personal and distinctive style. He has released 25 highly- acclaimed independent albums on Woodpecker Records that showcase his mastery of many instruments and styles of acoustic music, from hip-folk to country, slashing slide guitar blues to bluegrass, old-time, Celtic, ragtime and even classical.

Reid’s skills and versatility on the guitar alone mark him as an important voice in acoustic music. He won the 1981 National Fingerpicking Guitar Competition and the 1982 International Autoharp Contest. He recorded the first album ever of 6 & 12-string banjo music, and his 1990 album Steel Drivin' Man, was chosen by Acoustic Guitar Magazine as one of 10 Essential Folk CD’s of all time, along with Woody Guthrie and other hallowed names. His music was included in the blockbuster BBC TV show Musical Tour of Scotland, and Reid was featured in the Rhino Records Acoustic Music of the 90’s collection, along with a “who’s who” line-up of artists including Richard Thompson, Jerry Garcia & Leo Kottke.

Reid has never ventured into the mainstream, and has operated“below the radar” of the music business, but his reputation as a musician’s musician is widespread. He has been a featured act at many of America's premier concert clubs and festivals. Radio DJ’s and critics nationwide are discovering his remarkable recordings, and they regularly show up on radio playlists and end-of-the year favorites lists. Music fans coast-to-coast flock to catch his exciting performances.

You’ll find elements of the traditional troubadour, the modern poet-songwriter, the American back-porch picker, the classical virtuoso, and a bit of Will Rogers style dry humor and satire. Reid has a vast repertoire of traditional and contemporary songs, and weaves them seamlessly together with his own compositions and wry humor.

THE TWANGTOWN PARAMOURS

The music of The Twangtown Paramours has been called “Sophisticated Americana”, and is a hybrid of the Nashville and Austin music scenes. This husband ‘n wife acoustic duo is known for their well-crafted and award-winning songs, top-notch lead singing, and fine harmonies. They have performed at nationally recognized venues such as Uncle Calvin’s in Dallas, Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, and the Bluebird Café in Nashville. They have opened for Joe Ely, Claire Lynch, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Carrie Newcomer, and Kim & Reggie Harris, amongst others.

The Twangtown Paramours were chosen three times (2011, 2013, and 2016) to be finalists in the prestigious Kerrville New Folk contest and were winners of the Michael Terry People’s Choice Award in the Wildflower Music Festival Songwriter Contest in 2012. In February, 2011,the Twangers were named Artists on the Verge for 2011 by the Bluegrass Special Magazine.

The Twangtown Paramours are currently working on their third album. Their last record was released to radio in 2012 and reached #2 on the Folk DJ Chart. John Platt of WFUV in New York City listed the album in his top 10 for the year; Lilli Kuzma of WDCB in Chicago listed the album in her top 5 for the year; and Deep Roots Magazine listed the album at #7 for the year. All the recorded music of the Twangtown Paramours can be heard on over 100 Folk, Americana, and independent country station world-wide.

The duo is looking forward to performing at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire commemoration in NYC in March of 2017. Their song, “Chains” was written to bring attention to the circumstances of that fire and of others like it. One of their newest songs, “Stars Without a Heaven” has not yet been released to the public, but a demo version of the song is already being played in a few holocaust museums, including Yadvashem in Israel.

KATE MACLEOD

Her voice has been said to sound as pure as water from a mountain stream. And while singing from the Wasatch Mountains in Utah, her highly acclaimed songs often precede her as other artists sing them on stages across the country. Her songs compel music publications such as Sing Out! Magazine to claim that Kate MacLeod "channels the spirit of the great Carter Family classics." She has opened for artists such as Rosanne Cash, Dan Fogelberg and Greg Brown, but performs winning concerts of her own across the country. Her songwriting style and live performances display an unbreakable link between traditional music and cutting-edge contemporary songwriting. Kate has written music based on historic events and personalities, a collection of songs based on books, and some commissioned for cultural projects. Whether in a song or on her violin, she captures our history, our landscapes, and our lives in the varied music that she creates. This is no more obvious than in current projects she is developing. 2016 marks the release of her songbook, including music notation, chords, and lyrics, of a large collection of her original songs, many of them inspired by people and places that she has come across while traveling. Kate is also compiling a book of original violin/fiddle pieces.

CLICK HORNING TRIO

The Lake Sunapee, NH region has always had more than its share of musicians. Maybe it's the mountain air or maybe it's the scenery, but something keeps them coming back. Just ask Click Horning, New London's singer songwriter who left when he was seventeen for the Big Apple. Twelve years, a record contract and an album later it was time to come back. Early influences were Bob Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, Peter Paul & Mary, as well as rock and roll and R&B that he listened to growing up.

Click's music has taken him across the country several times, to the Rockies and to the deep south . Click has produced two more solo albums and two albums with his band Night Kitchen , a "get up and dance" band composed of Click on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Gerry Putnam on lead guitar, Dinty Child on electric rhythm guitar and keyboards, Dana Flewelling on drums and Dave Doran on bass.

Click began playing guitar at boarding school, influenced by other guitar playing students, one in particular being Gram Parsons. Click persuaded his grandmother to finance a bottom-of-the-line Gibson guitar (a combination birthday and Christmas gift). "I had been spending all my spare time practicing on a friends guitar, but soon found I had to have my own."

He began playing folk songs, but after hearing Gram and writers like Bob Dylan, he decided to try his hand at writing songs. "It was the perfect blending of poems and music that intrigued me. I've always loved lyrics that tell a story."

The Click Horning Trio is: Click on acoustic guitar and vocals, Joanie Horning on bass, Justin Ferren on lead guitar, and an occasional gig with Harley Walker on Drums

LINDSAY STRAW

Lindsay Straw "Hearken(s) back to more innocent times, of Greenwich Village and pure folk." (The Living Tradition)

Lindsay Straw is a singer, guitarist, and Irish bouzouki player who performs traditional songs and tunes from the British Isles. Originally from Montana, she began to explore Boston’s Irish and folk music scenes while studying film scoring at Berklee College of Music. Her debut solo album My Mind From Love Being Free was released on May 1, 2015. She is a 2015 recipient of Club Passim’s Iguana Fund Grant, which will enable her to make her second album in 2016.

Lindsay has impressed with her tender singing voice and an extensive repertoire that is rooted in the Scottish and Northern Irish traditions, but which also delves into contemporary songwriters like Richard Thompson and Bob Dylan. She has also drawn praise for her sensitive, agile accompaniment on bouzouki and guitar at many a local session and in concert as a member of the Irish quartet The Ivy Leaf, with piper Joey Abarta, and with fellow guitar & bouzouki player Owen Marshall.

SCOTT AINSLIE

Considered a master of American roots music, Scott Ainslie brings a wealth of personal and musical history to the stage. With engaging stories he provides historical context for a repertoire of Delta Blues and ragtime guitar, gospel, and music of the banjo and fiddle traditions of the Southern Appalachians. Coming of age during the Civil Rights era, Ainslie studied with elder musicians on both sides of the color line. With a deep affinity for cross-cultural exchange, he plays this music with affection, authority and power.

Armed with vintage guitars, a fretless gourd banjo, a homemade one-string diddley bow, and carefully chosen historical and personal anecdotes of his encounters with senior musicians across the South, Ainslie brings the history, roots music, and sounds of America alive.

Scott Ainslie literally wrote the book on the Mississippi Delta Blues legend,“Robert Johnson/At the Crossroads”. Exploring the African and European roots of American music and culture in every concert,“he lives in the groove ...” says the Durham NC Spectator.

JENNIFER CULLY CURTIN

On her website Jennifer Curtin says:
“My name is Jennifer and I live in the wilds of central Vermont with my husband Jim and two kids, Finbar and Maeve. I have always had a passion for singing and making music of all kinds. Recently, with the help of Colin McCaffrey, I released a recording of traditional and contemporary Celtic & British Isles songs titled "Comfort for the Comfortless". I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it (which was a lot!). May the songs inspire you to go out and make your own music – or at least sing in the shower!”

The press says:
“Curtin has a lovely voice and “Comfort for the Comfortless” is an apt title, as this album never jars the senses nor makes promises it can’t keep. Instead we have a fine singer at home in a genre of music that emanates from lands far across the sea.”

HILTON PARK

HILTON PARK is an award winning family trio noted for their earthy, emotionally expressive and superbly crafted Americana, Folk & Blues. Father/son team Bruce and Conor Hilton combined with family friend Gregg Pannier earned a 2015 New England Music Award for “Best In State: Maine”.

Hilton Park's brand of Americana music, which they have dubbed "Kin Folk", is authentic and endearingly classic, with enough modern grit to captivate today’s audience. Stylish and confident 3-part vocal harmonies fill the repertoire, combining the ‘blood harmony’ only heard in family acts (from the Everly Brothers to the Avett Brothers) with a melodic skill often compared to Crosby, Stills and Nash. Their songwriting style shows New England savvy, yet with roots in the Deep South.

“Hilton Park’s new album ‘Strings’ tells its story with a warm, family tenderness that everything is going to be okay so long as you listen closely… like a sweet flowing fabric that catches warm breezes as it dries on the line out back of your summer home. From rowdy saloon bustling ballads, to soft, candied flowering story, there is something for everyone in this album.” - Megan Gazzo, The Equal Ground

ANDREW MCKNIGHT

Blessed with a warm personality and down-home comfort on stage, Andrew McKnight's powerful and entertaining performances are like one man theatre; the songs are woven together with humorous stories and poetic drama, and the musical soundscape traverses influences from Appalachia, tasteful slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, rustic folk, and even a little fancy flatpicking on a Carter Family tune. While his guitar is clearly the foundation for a concert, the touches of native American cedar flute, resonator guitar, djembe (African hand drum) and even mandolin add delightful and mesmerizing embellishments to the show. Fans of Darrell Scott, John McCutcheon and Richard Shindell will find much to like in Andrew's songs and stylings.

"The skillful songwriter's interest in history is revealed in songs such as the Civil War ballad "The Road to Appomattox" and the soldier's elegy "Wind Whispers Your Name."...he avoids stridency by crafting vignettes told from the point of view of those in pain and keeps dourness at bay ... He also works in true folkie tradition, updating lyrics to classic material such as "Worried Man Blues" or reworking Robert Johnson's "Crossroads" to place himself mano-a-devil." - The Washington Post

"With a voice reminiscent of Don McLean, McKnight traverses from old-time Appalachian tunes to contemporary folk and blues, all backed up by his dead-on guitar playing" - The Boston Globe

BOMBADILS

For over five years, rising folk-stars The Bombadils have been enchanting audiences around the world with their unique fusion of traditional, world and progressive folk.

Endearingly described as “chamber folk,” the group of cinematic storytellers have intertwined their musical chops rooted in classical and jazz music (all trained at Montreal’s esteemed McGill University) around an approachable performance style that takes listeners on a journey through history and towards the future of Canadian folk.

Each hailing from their own unique corner of Canada, group members Sarah Frank (fiddle, banjo, vocals), Luke Fraser (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Alan Mackie (bass, vocals) and Anh Phung (flutes, harmonica, vocals), first bonded over a shared curiosity and love of traditional music – but have since solidified their friendship with over 50,000 kilometers of touring and countless performances together.

“The Bombadils have all the elements of a great band – a high level of musical proficiency, deep respect for the traditional roots of their material and an engaging repertoire which holds the attention of the listener from beginning to end.”

WOODCHUCK‘S REVENGE

WOODCHUCKS' REVENGE "warms folk with sparks of bluegrass, country and blues." (Vox, Burlington, VT) This group, whose name used to embarrass our children (so we kept it) comprised of husband and wife Peter and Kristina Cady, with Sandy Morse and Mike Lussen, presents an engaging mix of old and new folk, ranging from Carter Family mountain songs and New England fiddle tunes to modern western ballads. We even toss in a few of our own parodies, including "Two Below" and "Mama Fried'.

Playing guitars, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, bass and bodhran, the Woodchucks entertain their audiences with humor, history, and a variety of traditions from the Amertican folk scene.

"Once again the Woodchucks' phenomenal versatility shows itself, as it does in their concerts. Those who have attended know that roaring laughter is almost guaranteed, yet there are also moments when they touch on matters of the heart and the pains of living with the same degree of timing, finesse and understanding."

POSSUM HAW

A special combination: the drive of bluegrass and the original lyricism of folk, delivered by one of the finest female vocalists in the region. Vocalist Colby Crehan brings this sound to audiences with the Vermont band PossumHaw. Formed in 2004 by husband-wife team Ryan (banjo player) and Colby Crehan and lead guitarist Charley Eiseman, the group has evolved into a well-oiled machine with stunning vocal harmonies and stellar acoustic instrumentation. Mandolinist Stephen Waud joined the group in 2009 and bassist Mitch Barron in 2013.

Jazz and blues influences weave through a repertoire of original music fueled by Crehan's skilled songwriting. Crehan’s song “Road to Mora” was named Vermont Song of the Year, and Crehan named Vermont Vocalist of the Year (Tammie Awards, Times-Argus).

In addition to finely-crafted music provided by the entire band, front man Ryan Crehan makes audiences feel right at home with wonderful stage presence and wry humor. PossumHaw is what the Northeast folk and bluegrass music scene is all about—excellent original acoustic live music delivered with skill, sincerity, and personality.

DAVEY O.

It's no surprise that Buffalo, NY born and bred songwriter Davey O. has been described by Buffalo News critic Jeff Miers as having "a journalist’s eye for detail and poet’s ear for the well-turned observation". Embarking on a decade-plus journey that has resulted in a collection of justly-earned, highly introspective songs, Davey crafts pure Americana that is not of the social and political consciousness, but drawn from the deep well of experience and human emotion - no hackneyed story lines, no insincere polish, just an unflinching poet's look at life with the characters woven in seamlessly.

Armed with his Gibson guitar, a battered straw cowboy hat and a no apologies rust-belt work ethic, Davey puts rubber to asphalt, entertaining attentive, diverse audiences at listening rooms, coffeehouses, nightclubs, festivals, colleges and universities throughout the Northeast, Midwest, and Atlantic U.S. - performances that result in engagement and communion between performer and audience through story and song.

Seriously wicked cool infectious camaraderie and good humor. In a word, FUN.

John Flynn

In an era of deep division, John Flynn's songs call us together as they speak for the wounded, the weary, and the afflicted; for the prisoner, the soldier, and all the forgotten ones who walk unseen in our midst. Fusing the vision of an activist with the unblinking eye of a truth-teller, John Flynn's music speaks deeply to the heart and the spirit. A wordsmith and poet of rare clarity, John evokes our shared humanity as he addresses the times we live in. From barbed political verse to joyous fun-loving lyrics for kids, John paints vivid, lasting images with words and music drawn from a palate of awareness, irony, humor, and compassion. John was recently honored for his contribution of a song included in the compilation CD, “All About Bullies, Big and Small,” which won the Grammy as Best Children's Album of 2012.

The Joshua Incident performs original songs in an alt-country vein bound to the rich traditions of country, folk, and cosmic American music. Pedal steel guitarist Dan Beller-McKenna and singer Ann Norton met by chance on Facebook when they both waxed eloquent over Richard Thompson's “1952 Vincent Black Lightning” on a mutual friend's post. Discovering that Norton shared his passion for the music of Gram Parsons, Beller-McKenna and singer/guitarist Todd Thurlow invited Norton and bassist John “Hal” Halstead to join them in a Parsons jam one hot July afternoon. Tight harmonies meshed seamlessly with a lean but lyrical acoustic backdrop, and The Joshua Incident was born.

The band offers unique sound and spirit born from this rare mix of steel, guitar, bass, and vocals.

Chris LaVancher

2014 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist – Chris LaVancher spins tales from such a genuine, heart-felt place you can't help but believe his stories and love the broken characters that inhabit them. Chris grew up in the hills of North Central Pennsylvania where he learned to observe the many wonderful characters that inhabited that little town. It was, and still is, quite a special hidden gem of place filled with a surprising number of artists, musicians, creative types and downright interesting people. Today he lives just north of Boston Massachusetts, a Mecca of sorts for folk singers and songwriters, but much of his inspiration still goes back to that little town in Pennsylvania.

Deep Hole Road is a fun and refreshing group with two couples: Sue & Phil Cassista and Sharon & Nick Pangaro. DHR has been exciting people in southern New Hampshire with an eclectic mix of string band music ranging from folk to bluegrass, old-timey to swing, and Cajun to ragtime.

The two fiddlers (Sharon and Sue) bring electricity to the music with beautiful harmonies and intertwined melodies. Both supplement their fiddling with other instruments, including djembe, cajon, guitar and vocals. Phil's guitar and banjo provides a backdrop for his vocal work and strong songwriting. And Nick rounds out the sound with mandolins, bass, guitar, harmonica and vocals. Their first album”‘Diggin' All Day and other love songs” was released last June.

Tom Pirozzoli & Gerry Putnam have released their 2nd CD entitled "Sanctuary".

A CD release party at the Sunapee Coffeehouse will include giveaways and specials for patrons, and a performance of many of the songs form the new CD.

An all instrumental CD featuring Gerry on nylon string lead guitar and Tom on steel string. This CD includes 13 original compositions by Tom, and two classical pieces. It features a variety of musical forms, from a medley of Vivaldi and Dvorjak to jazzy upbeat to a cowboy song to a jig.

Kathy Lowe wrote this about it: Firstly, the melodic interchange between said players is exquisite and unique. One can surmise, just through the first listen, that there is a marriage of minds, muscles, and mastery. Overtones continuously rising to depths beyond normal auditory experience, transport one's awareness to sympathetic strings of delight and tranquility. The rhythmic balance between nylon and steel seem to concerto into one sound which penetrates the heart into a beating never felt before.

The new melodies are striking in that, they sound as if they were born into space for a solid purpose of manifesting joy to the soul.

...And I will say this: I REALLY LOVE IT!!! especially #7, the cowboy song......

Danielle Miraglia

A blistering version of “Stagger Lee” occurs seven tracks deep into Danielle Miraglia's most recent album, Box of Troubles. The notes come fast and hard. The thumb pick on the bass strings is like a jackhammer, insistent in its driving urgency. The tempo is faster than I've ever heard it before, but it seems right. Her voice is strong and expressive with a whiskey-stained authority, peppered occasionally with a raspy growl, as she sings: Police officer, how can it be / You can arrest everybody but cruel old Stagger Lee? That bad man, cruel Stagger Lee … Her slide guitar sets up an ominous drone.... And if you think that's good you gotta hear the rest of what she plays.

Buskin & Batteau have been winning hearts and minds with their soulful acoustic balladry and fun-filled performances for more years than they care to remember. "We're not from the Cambridge, came-over-on-the-Mayflower first wave of folkies [ Joan Baez, Tom Rush, Eric Von Schmidt ]," says Buskin, "but we'd like to think we've stolen many of their licks." The Washington Post called their work "an irresistible amalgam of melodic, sensual pop, folkie grit and killer wit.” Buskin & Batteau let the poet drive their songs forward with an unstoppable beat and untamed fiddle solo.

Strangely enough, He's also recorded music with a really fantastic famous jazz drummer and with the keyboardist for the Strawbs and Renaissance. More recently, he's touring the American South and Midwest with the brilliant uilleann piper, Paddy Keenan. Along with traditional Irish music, he plays American bottleneck/slide and fingerpicking, and original songs which are, he says, "good with cold beer, good whiskey and octopus stew."

"Phil Hare who hails from the United Kingdom will be making his inaugural tour of the US and the Sunapee Coffee House is his first stop."

''Phil Hare hails from the UK and is widely regarded as one of the finest and most distinctive guitarists on the UK acoustic/folk music circuit. Phil became a solo performer towards the end of the 1980's, taking to the road with powerful self-written songs which often reflect his own social/political views. He presents them in a humorous and chorus-based style so as not to appear 'tub-thumping'. Phil is an accomplished performer and mixes his virtuosity on the guitar with the songs that highlight his rich and husky voice. This is Phil's first visit to the USA and hopes many more will follow.''

.  Musically, he goes by Greg Kozicz & the Tribe of Dreams. His music is "cosmic folk," folk music with influences ranging from acoustic rock, soul, and gospel, to the rhythms of Native pipe flutes and drums, and the sounds of the sitars of Classical Indian music. The Tribe of Dreams is as much a journey of mind spirit and heart as it is a path made of music

Our own Al Carruth, shown at left in his luthier workshop playing one of his works of art, (the guitar and his music). A mix of Americana, fingerpicking with great lyrics, and of course that great sense of humor.

If you've not heard Doc Rogers, you're in for a treat. A solid performer with big heart solid licks and great sense of humor and stage presence.
From his website:
"Wish I sounded like Pat Donohue, or Mike Dowling, or Mary Flower. But I sound just like me. Which is quite OK. As Pat sez, 'I don't bother my voice, and it don't bother me.' Back in the folk scare I learned from Don Zepp in suburban Philly, then taught next to him at the Haddonfield Conservatory of Music. it goes on...

Howard's blues style is drawn from the tradition of Huddie Ledbetter (Leadbelly) and Blind Willy McTell, incorporating a powerful bass line along with flashy finger-picking,  His guitar style and poignant vocals can carry the listener into the world of rowdy barrelhouses or into the field at the end of a long day of weeding crops

Poor Howard's 12-string guitar has the solid, propulsive groove of a steady-moving freight train; and he has the uncanny way of singing classic blues tunes as if their hard-luck stories were happening today.
