Joe K. Walsh and Matt Munisteri
Saturday, November 20, masterclass at 5 pm, concert at 7 pm

Mile Twelve is a fresh, hard-driving young band beautifully walking the line between original and traditional bluegrass.

Rachel Sumner

Join Rachel for a masterclass that explores the ties between traditional and modern folk songs, and how we as writers can look to those old songs and find something new and original within them.

Paul Rishell and Annie Raines

For 25 years Paul Rishell & Annie Raines have been hailed as one of the world’s best blues duos!

Jenna Moynihan and Friends
Saturday, May 7 masterclass at 5 pm, concert at 7 pm
Too often artists view tradition as a towering monolith to be either conquered or cowed by, but young Scottish fiddler and experimentalist Jenna Moynihan knows that tradition is meant to be a starting point for great inspiration, not a wall.


Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
