Andrew McKnight

Over his fifteen year career, Andrew McKnight has enjoyed many accolades within the folk music world. His five solo CDs have earned much critical acclaim and airplay around the world as well as a wealth of NPR stations and several XM/Sirius satellite shows.

Andrew’s solo performances are like one man theatre; the songs are woven together with humorous stories and poetic drama, and the musical soundscape traverses influences from Appalachia, tasteful slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, rustic folk, and even a little fancy flatpicking on a Carter Family tune.

Dan Stevens

At the young age of sixteen, Dan Stevens’ romantic streak was ignited by his first guitar teacher in small town central Pennsylvania who told him stories about the lives of traveling blues musicians like Mississippi John Hurt and Fred McDowell.

Termed “Connecticut’s hardest working bluesman” by the New York Times, he plays over two hundred engagements a year, including concerts, clubs, festivals, coffeehouses and more.

Ellis Paul

Ellis Paul is one of the leading voices in American songwriting and one of the top songwriters to emerge out of the fertile Boston folk scene. He helped create a movement that revitalized the national acoustic circuit with an urban, literate, folk rock style that helped renew interest in the genre in the 90’s.

His charismatic, personally authentic performance style has influenced a generation of artists away from the artifice of pop, and closer towards the realness of folk.

Chelsea Berry

Kris Delmhorst

Kris Delmhorst is a singer songwriter who has built a thriving career and devoted following from the ground up - without major label hype. The same independence of spirit that led Delmhorst to spend early years working on subsistence farms, cooking on a schooner off the coast of ME, or hitch-hiking around Ireland with a fiddle on her back, is evident in the arc of her musical evolution: a willingness to work on her own terms and her own time.
