Karrin Allyson Trio

“She aces the tightrope walk of songbook reverence and jazz-vocal breeziness that often proves elusive”—New York Times.

Della Mae

Traditional mountain music with modern singer-songwriter sensibilities.

“From songs that explore independence and urban adventure to timeless themes of love and loss, Della Mae brings acoustic grit and twang to town with no apologies”—Bluegrass Journal.

Gala Dance Under the Stars with Girls Guns & Glory

One of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Artists You Need To Know”:

Bombay Rickey

With their deliciously quirky blend of cowboy music, exotic dance rhythms, coloratura soprano, surf guitar, Indian, Latin, funk, and rock, Bombay Rickey might be the soundtrack to a Bollywood noir film from the 1960s, or perhaps to a spaghetti western that never existed.

Hot Club of Cowtown

Lauded for its “down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation” (The Times, London) the Hot Club sets up camp “at that crossroads where country meets jazz and chases the blues away” (The Independent).
