Brothers in Concert: Reed Foehl, Stewart Lewis opens

Steeped in the folk tradition, Reed Foehl is largely known for his lyrical ability as an artist. He possesses a talent, and voice that is very seldom seen (or heard). Foehl’s landscape of lush tones and solid songs touches the raw truth of love and tragedy, without sinking into saccharin sentimentally or cold remove. His albums pull together a touch of country, folk and edgy roots rock with the bold honesty intrinsic to modern songwriting.

Harpeth Rising

Billed as an “Americana Sensation” by WSM 650, this group of young classically trained musicians is making an immense impact wherever they play. The quartet brings an exciting and distinctive sound to the Americana genre. With a banjo and fiddle, you might think they’re traditional bluegrass, but think again: cello and hand drums round out the group, creating a truly new sound.

A little bit bluegrass, a little bit folk, a little bit classical and whole lot of original, Harpeth Rising is a band to watch.

Steve Poltz

Noineen Noiny Noin is without reservation, the most absurdly-named, pulchritudinous, foot-stomping party of 2012. Few will be surprised to learn that it is the title of the newest release from award-winning singer-songwriter Steve Poltz.

Southern California’s Steve Poltz is one of the most beloved songwriters of his generation. His music--as both a solo artist and with cult legends The Rugburns--has enjoyed long stretches in the Billboard top ten, gobbled up acres of mainstream radio and appeared in scores of television shows, commercials and movies.

Jo Henley & Abbie Barrett

Jo Henley is not a person, but rather a Boston-based roots-rock band formed by longtime musical collaborators Andy Campolieto and Ben Lee, known for its exciting blend of rock, folk, country, and bluegrass that their fans affectionately refer to as “new roots.” Inspired by everything from Hank Williams to The Rolling Stones to Phish, Campolieto and Lee, along with drummer Mike Dingley, combine traditional roots music with modern rock to create a sound all their own.

Indra is a sophisticated, adventurous jazz trio from Denmark, featuring New York City native Indra Rios-Moore on sparsely-arranged songs from American jazz standards, to folk songs, to newly composed pieces.
