Claire Lynch

Long recognized and praised as a creative force in acoustic music, Claire Lynch is a pioneer who continually pushes the boundaries of the bluegrass genre. Her career has been decorated with many accolades including three GRAMMY nominations, six International Bluegrass Music Association awards and the prestigious United States Artists Walker Fellowship.

 

Dolly Parton credits Claire with "one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today." Her harmonies have graced the recordings of many stellar musicians. Equally gifted as a writer, her songs have been recorded by The Seldom Scene, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, Cherryholmes, The Whites and others.

 

Blazing her own trail in the mid 70's when there were few role models for young women in the genre, Claire Lynch made history when she led the Front Porch String Band which evolved in the 80’s and 90’s into “one of the sharpest and most exciting post-modern bluegrass bands on the circuit.” She formed her own Claire Lynch Band in 2005 and has since consistently been a top pick of prestigious publications, critics and audiences across the U.S. and beyond.

Akpé-Motion


Akpé-Motion is the artistic creation of French jazz musicians Pascal Bouterin and Romain Simeray, natives of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, a Provencal town in the south of France renowned for its artistic culture..... Akpé’s music bristles with energy: daring, unorthodox, and infused with the exotic sounds and textures drawn from a diversity of cultures, instruments, and musical genres; all strongly weaved in jazz..... .. “Speaking” Music .. .... Their improvisational style speaks boldly in melodic phrases, buoyant rhythms, and a collective musical voice..... Akpé’s distinctive sound and musical versatility draw crowds of jazz enthusiasts to their concerts, and music festivals throughout Europe..... .. Native Inspiration .. .... Inspiration for the group’s name came when the duo journeyed to Lomé, the capital of the West African country of Togo, where they spent nights jamming with local musicians, and immersing themselves in the rich reservoir of native sounds and rhythms..... Energized by this incomparable music, they showed their appreciation for the native musicians by adopting the name Akpé, the Togolese word for thank-you..... .. New Album Release ...... Recently, the group joined creative forces with celebrated French Jazz trumpeter and composer Alain Brunet. The result is the album entitled, Docks, a collaborative project deeply rooted in improvisation that showcases the rich and unique dynamism between Akpé-Motion and Brunet. .... The group is preparing to embark on their first U.S. tour this fall to promote the U.S. release of Docks. $10

Velvet Caravan and Gypsy Wildcats

This unorthodox, high-energy, acoustic-based quintet of guitar, violin, standup bass, percussion and keyboards (including accordion) has, over the past few years, emerged as one of the shining lights of Savannah’s burgeoning music scene. In that time, the band has grown from a somewhat informal instrumental combo which routinely drew enthusiastic and loyal followers at raucous restaurant and bar gigs to a respected and admired touring act that’s as comfortable in an attentive listening room or large concert hall as they are in a crowded nightclub

Andrew Combs

Andrew Combs

A Dallas native now living near the same Nashville airport immortalized in the opening sequence of Robert Altman’s country music odyssey, Andrew Combs is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and heir to that 1975 film’s idea of the Nashville troubadour as a kind of musical monk. Here in the twenty-first century whorl of digital narcissism, where identity can feel like a 24/7 social media soft-shoe performance, Combs makes music that does battle with the unsubtle. Like the pioneering color photographer William Eggleston, he sees the everyday and the commonplace as the surest paths to transcendence, and he understands intuitively that what is most obvious is often studded with the sacred. As a songwriter, Combs relies on meditative restraint rather than showy insistence to paint his canvases, a technique commensurate with his idea of nature as an overflowing spiritual wellspring. NPR music critic Ann Powers noted as much in a 2015 review: “His song-pictures are gorgeous, but he recognizes their impermanence as he sings.” This deeply felt sense of ecology, of the transient beauty within nature’s chaotic churn, lies at the heart of Combs’s approach to his art.

WEISSHUND

 

WEISSHUND is a rock and roll duo from Atlanta made up of Rick Lollar (vocals and guitar) and Marlon Patton (drums and Moog bass pedals). Patton and Lollar channel their respective influences of John Bonham and Jimi Hendrix, while focusing on riffs and melody and performing with the reckless abandon of a garage band.

Lollar and Patton are regulars on stage and in the studio within the Atlanta music community and joined forces in early 2014 to find an outlet. “We stayed up all night, made a mighty whiskey-fueled ruckus, and when the dust cleared the next day, we found a pile of new songs,” says Lollar.

Weisshund has performed at venues such as Pete's Candy Store in Brooklyn, Rockwood Music Hall in Manhattan, Caledonia Lounge in Athens, Ga. And Terminal West in Atlanta.

Weisshund released the single "Running” in late 2014 and is currently working on their EP, due out summer 2015, recorded in the legendary Studio G in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

TAKENOBU

Takénobu is the moniker for Cellist and Composer Nick Takénobu Ogawa. His music can be heard on Pandora Internet Radio, NPR's Morning Edition, and in independent documentaries and films. 

To date Takénobu has released 4 full length albums, all featuring original music. In live performance Nick is joined by violinist Brian Harper.

"Seeing Takénobu live is a visceral experience, as his skilled cello playing integrated with his smooth vocals take the listener to another place." - Kevin Triebsch, AXS.com

Nick grew up in rural Vermont and began taking cello lessons at the age of 6. He participated in state and regional youth orchestras through high school, and decided to move away from traditional classical music at the age of 18. In 2006 he won the Williamsburg Live Singer Songwriter contest in Brooklyn New York and put the grand prize money towards the independent release of his first album, "Introduction" in 2007. In 2008 he was featured on the PBS program "Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour," which is syndicated to 497 different PBS affiliates throughout the US. Following this appearance his music began receiving increasing Pandora Internet Radio play, and currently has on average 1 million spins per month. 

In addition to his own material, Ogawa has recorded cello for numerous artists, including Dessa, Lana Del Rey, Hey Ocean!, and has performed opening for Stephen Kellogg, Jason Mraz, Kishi Bashi, Balmorhea and more.

White Rabbit Collctive and Larry Acquaviva

White Rabbit Collctive and Larry Acquaviva

White Rabbit is a collective of diverse artists skilled in many forms and genres of artistic expression. They strive to give 60's psychedelic rock a modern renaissance with an exotic twist of world influences. They refuse to be pigeon-holed or labeled as this or that. Instead they continually break free from expectations to deliver something new and unexpected, transforming with new members and influences in a perpetual evolution. Their connection to each other and our audience is palpable and the ecstatic dynamics of tension and release in their compositions act like waters flowing or fire dancing. Together they embody a chameleon that can shape-shift together to suit the environment and find the most ecstatic mode of instrumentation and song leadership. They often attempt to bridge the gap between audience and performer by inviting friends to participate with percussive instruments. The songs sing themselves - the musicians are merely multi-instrumental conduits at the service of our pent-up desires to dance.

Larry Acquaviva is an accomplished author and along with his wife Andrea will introduce his new book

"Nobody Cares Who You Are Book II: The Hitchhiking Odyssey"

"My experience hitchhiking proved to me that out in that big, bad world, when you don’t have two nickels to rub together at times, when you become a shadow in the midst of a sea of humanity, when you understand that you are merely a speck of dust on the side of a forgotten highway, that sometimes, nobody cares who you are. It was a powerful lesson in humility, and truth, about who I truly was, and what this world is really all about. This is what I found as I blazed across the country like a mad man on the loose.”

— Larry Acquaviva

Stephane Wrembel

He’s been called “a revelation” by Rolling Stone. Woody Allen recruited him to score the theme to the 2012 Academy Award winning film Midnight in Paris, and he performed live during this year’s Oscar’s telecast. To say that French-born guitarist/composer Stephane Wrembel—who learned his craft among the Gypsies at campsites in the French countryside—has already had a remarkable career would be an understatement. But this virtuoso, who is now Brooklyn-based, has truly just begun to make his mark as one of the most original guitar voices in contemporary music
