MOORS & McCUMBER

CANCELLED

James Moors and Kort McCumber grew up in different places and listening to different kinds of music � classical, rock, bluegrass, you name it. But when they met ten years ago they knew they�d found something golden. Since then, they�ve been cultivating their wide-ranging musical influences in songs that delve into love and life through haunting lyrics, soaring harmonies, and dazzling instrumental proficiency. As Grammy award-winning producer Lloyd Maines puts it, �These guys should be playing every major festival in the country. They bring it all to the stage and deliver it in a big way.�

 


STEVE SESKIN with HOPE DUNBAR 
CANCELLED

Steve Seskin is one of the most successful writers in Nashville today, with a boatload of songs recorded by Tim McGraw, Neal McCoy, John Michael Montgomery, Kenny Chesney, Collin Raye, Peter Frampton, Waylon Jennings, Alabama, Mark Wills, and Peter Paul and Mary. His song "Don't Laugh At Me" was a finalist for CMA "Song of the Year" in 1999, and has spurred an entire tolerance movement, launched by the Don't Laugh at Me Project. Other Seskin hits include: "I Think About You," "Life's A Dance," "No Doubt About It," "If You've Got Love" and "Grown Men Don't Cry."

In addition to being a fantastic songwriter, Steve Seskin is also an electrifying performer. "His voice has a natural lilt that can't be learned," writes Joel Selvin in the SF Chronicle. He's "a really exceptional talent," writes Alan Lewis in the SF Bay Guardian. And "the presentation is simple, affective, and effective," writes Jim Carnes in the Sacramento Bee. Few performers can face an audience with only an acoustic guitar and hotwire its emotions. But that's what happens at Steve's concerts.

Hope Dunbar is a pioneer of the new American prairie style � the incarnation of Americana and Country-Folk sound staking claim under a big sky, shouting at the north wind, digging in and refusing to leave. 

�Hope Dunbar, from little Utica, Nebraska, caught me off guard with some incredible language and truth telling, including the mystical, �We Want.� It�s these kind of surprises in the after-midnight hours when the endorphins of music ecstacy meet the endorphins of fatigue, that make Folk Alliance special.�
� Craig Havighurst, Nashville Journalist and host of Music City Roots

 


JEFF BLACK
CANCELLED

"His words and voice hold down center stage with a craft so deeply in the artistic pocket that it obscures anything outside"
No Depression

Black has forged a reputation as a true folk troubadour entertaining audiences globally for over three decades. A master songwriter and performer in the tradition of the great storytellers, his passionate, soul driven live performances of songs from his vast catalog are not to be missed.

Jeff Black's latest collection "A Walk In The Sun" features Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Dave Roe (Johnny Cash, Jake Bugg), Jerry Roe (Alison Krauss), Kenny Vaughan (Lucinda Williams, Marty Stuart). Produced by Jeff Black, mixed by Dave Sinko (Chris Thile, Punch Brothers) and is slated for release February 2nd, 2020.

 


THE ROUGH & TUMBLE
CANCELLED

The Rough & Tumble are as easy to detect as a stray dog on your doorstep-- and as difficult to send home. The dumpster-folk, thriftstore-Americana duo, consisting of Mallory Graham & Scott Tyler, have been hobbling around the country in their 16� camper since 2015, when their Nashville landlord left them without heat during an ice storm for 12 days. Then she tried to hike the rent. Enough was enough, and The Rough & Tumble gave their 30 days notice at their jobs and their lease, sold most of what they owned, and hopped into their shoddily built camper, in spite of the lot salesman's advice. They picked up a couple of actual strays along the way-- two 100lb dogs, Puddle & Magpie Mae-- and have been making themselves at home in living rooms, bars, theaters, and festivals across the country. They've been recognized as a Feature Showcase Artist at 2018 SERFA, and a 2018 honorable mention for the Listening Room Network.

Even at their start in 2011, The Rough & Tumble are collectors. Trinkets, instruments, stories shoved in cupholders, and scraps of paper sticking out of old books they never planned to read, the duo couldn�t resist filling their pockets with tiny things that may be useful down the road. Until they hit the road. Limited in space, The Rough & Tumble are a new kind of collector: songwriting with illustration, and arranging each song with a menagerie of instruments, ranging from acoustic guitars to mailbox snares to a banjulele. "Their Americana music is restorative, their performance highly entertaining, their orchestra of unusual instruments intriguing, and� jokes and stories are worthy of an HBO special." (Linda Bolton, Cozy Cabin House Concerts).

Written during a time of doggedly trying despite the odds and a self-proclaimed �year of honesty,� The Rough & Tumble released their new studio album Howling Back at the Wounded Dog on September 6, 2019. 

 



HONEY DEWDROPS
CANCELLED

WE LOVE the HONEY DEWDROPS!
Actually, we love all our performers, but Laura and Kagey are extra loveable!

Americana duo The Honey Dewdrops � Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish� have long felt the push-and-pull between their original roots in the Appalachian mountains and their current home in urban Baltimore. You�ll hear it in their harmony soaked songs and the mastery of their instruments� acoustic tones, but also in their songwriting, which reflects the hard realities of today. With their fifth independent release, Anyone Can See out on March 1st, 2019, they have primed the creative energy so prevalent on their previous releases. Each song sparkles with focused intensity, and, with their new album, the duo show that they�re growing rapidly as artists, enthusiastically exchanging an impossible quest for perfection for the compelling ebbs and flows that accompany an intimate, authentic kind of expression.
