Butch Ross live singing "Shenandoah"

Butch Ross

www.butchross.com:  When Butch Ross opened for Bill Staines last fall, he received a rare accolade: a standing ovation for an opening act. He transforms the lowly mountain dulcimer into a virtuoso's instrument, drawing from it unexpected power and expressiveness. He mixes old country and Appalachian songs with his own wordy, literate, poetic ballads about people, places, and situations you might read about in a good book of short stories. He has a strong clear voice and a stage presence of boyish charm.

Ana Bai - Tina & Her Pony

Ana Bai

T & HP bring a unique sound to the folk tradition, with radical, queer lyrics, uncommon instrumentation and vocals tighter than your mamas’ brazier. Tina and Her Pony released their full length album in March 2012. The album was mixed and mastered in Oakland, Calif. with Myles Boisen (The Tigerlilies; Kronos Quartet) and features trumpeter Chris Grady (also featured on Tom Waits’ Mule Variations).

Her mom (author, Jean James) and dad (WWII veteran, William James) lived a very nomadic lifestyle. On one occasion they packed up the family (Mary was four at the time) and moved from Florida to North Minnesota, near the Canadian border, to rough it in the wilds. more at  www.maryjamesband.com
