(Thursday and Friday preferred, Saturday possible) (Excited to be at Folk Alliance with you all!)   Contact Info Phone: (734) 353-9525 Email: booking@jeremykittel.com Members: Jeremy Kittel, Quinn Bachand, Joshua Pinkham Category of Folk: World/Celtic/Prog. Bluegrass/Instrumental Location: Brooklyn, NY Press Kit: http://jeremykittel.com/2015/10/jeremy-kittel-trio/   Description of Music "I was entertained, mesmerized, and moved by the sound that leapt off of the stage… from a delicate jig to a celtic reel to a Bach Partita to a contemporary original acoustic composition… arrangements that were flawless, artful, and compelling... I would go out of my way to hear this outfit again!” Mark Schatz (Nickel Creek, Bela Fleck, Claire Lynch, John Hartford)   “...We were totally mesmerized by their set. Definitely one of my favorite acts we've been able to see on the road. We were blown away by their musicianship, by the rhythmic density and complexity of their arrangements… we would jump at the opportunity to share the stage with them again.” - Dave Senft, Darlingside, 2016 FAI Artist Of the Year    "Their individual and ensemble virtuosity, originality, and overall energy absolutely knocked out festival audiences… Music spanned the traditional to stunning originals…" Kevin Hanick, Iowa Artsfest   "It’s almost as if they become astral beings, tapping into the universe for an experience that resonates deeply with the audience."  -Hiawatha Music Festival   Brooklyn-based fiddler/composer Jeremy Kittel has worked as with everyone from Bela Fleck to My Morning Jacket to Yo-Yo Ma.  He’s joined by Joshua Pinkham and Quinn Bachand, two leading musicians on mandolin and guitar, for a compelling blend of traditional folk styles and original music.     Jeremy Kittel is an award-winning fiddler, violinist, and composer.  The Compass Records recording artist is a master in Celtic, classical, jazz, and bluegrass traditions, and is gifted in fusing and revitalizing these diverse styles. Jeremy was a member of the Turtle Island Quartet for five years and has also worked with Mark O’Connor, Bela Fleck, Edgar Meyer, Chris Thile, Paquito D’Rivera, My Morning Jacket and Jon Batiste and Stay Human. He has been a guest artist with several symphony orchestras, was twice featured on A Prairie Home Companion, and has performed around the world at venues as diverse as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, Bonnaroo and the Celtic Connections Festival in Scotland. Named “the future of the mandolin” by Mandolin Magazine, and dubbed “one of the most important young improvisers on the acoustic scene today” by mandolin grandmaster David Grisman, Josh Pinkham has establishedhimself as a striking performer, composer and recording artist.  He continues to push his mandolin into new and old territory, excelling in Bluegrass, Newgrass, Jazz and Classical music. Although Quinn Bachand plays a range of styles that include jazz and bluegrass, it is his talents in the world of Celtic music that draw the most attention. His unique harmonies, hard-driving strumming, inventive chord voicing and powerful rhythmic effects make even the most well-worn tunes seem new and exciting. He performs with his sister Qristina and has also toured nationally and internationally with Canadian fiddling icons Ashley MacIsaac and Natalie MacMaster.

Molsky's Mountain Drifters - Official Showcase Artists Locked Topic 0 Stash Wyslouch Phone: (914) 489-9961 E-mail: audrey@brucemolsky.com Website: http://mountaindrifters.com/   Molsky’s Mountain Drifters – Tradition steeped in possibility. Bruce Molsky’s new trio Molsky’s Mountain Drifters includes Allison de Groot on banjo and Stash Wyslouch on guitar. Grammy nominated Molsky is revered as old time music’s ambassador, teacher, and inspiration for the next generation of old time musicians. Banjo virtuoso Allison de Groot of “The Goodbye Girls” and “Oh My Darling” met Molsky at one of his workshops at Berklee, where his interest was piqued when “she played Lester Young solos on claw hammer banjo.” Stash Wyslouch is one of bluegrass music’s true genre benders, a high-energy performer who cut his teeth in punk and metal bands before immersing himself in roots music with “The Deadly Gentlemen.” Bruce Molsky is one of the most influential, exhilarating and revered fiddlers on the worldwide folk scene as well as a remarkable guitarist, banjoist and singer. A globetrotting performer and educator, a recording artist with an expansive discography and well over a dozen collaborations and two Grammy-nominations. He’s received high praise from diverse fans and collaborators like Linda Ronstadt, Mark Knopfler, Celtic giants Donal Lunny and Andy Irvine, jazzer Bill Frisell and dobro master Jerry Douglas, to name a few. “I was looking for a new voice,” says Molsky, “a new avenue of expression using old time mountain music as the jumping-off point, but not being constrained by hard core traditionalism. Allison and Stash are showing me the way, just where the music is headed, in directions I never would have imagined when I started my own journey into the mountains a long time ago. The CD is a reflection of that, and we see it as just the beginning. I chose the tunes and songs to represent a palette of straight old time repertoire, as well as new songs appropriate to our times, like Billy Bragg’s “Between The Wars,” an original waltz, and a set of Métis dance tunes that punctuate the exploration.” “The Mountain Drifters are one of my life’s great joys. We fill out each other’s sound covering all nooks and crannies with little brushes of our personalities. We breathe together, we smile together and we laugh and poke a whole lot of fun together,” says Stash. “I love and respect Bruce and Stash as people and musicians. Molsky’s Mountain Drifters is a wonderful place to express our individual musical personalities, and in combination we are able to explore the tradition and our own sound,” says Allison.

Americana Location: Santa Fe Press Kit: maxhatteddaglass.com/presskit   Description of Music "Vivid lyrical imagery...Like old ballads that have been recast in a contemporary form...a unique sound harmoniously forged from seemingly disparate elements." — Larry Groce, NPR Mountain Stage   “I was mesmerized from the first moment I heard them.

Based in Santa Fe, NM, the duo first hit the national stage at NYC’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, where they won the 2014 Grand-Prize of the international Mountain Stage / NewSong Competition.

Cary Morin Private Showcases Locked Topic 0 C. Di Iorio Hello All!  I will be attending FAI 2017 and am looking for private showcases.  I am an Acoustic Fingerstyle Blues and Americana performer. You may contact my manager, Celeste, at celeste@maplestreetmusicagency.com or 970 690-4048 to work out a booking.  I look forward to hearing from you! Bio: Described as “one of the best acoustic pickers on the scene today,” Cary Morin brings together the great musical traditions of America and beyond like no other. With deft fingerstyle guitar and vocals that alternately convey melodic elation and gritty world-weariness, Morin crafts an inimitable style often characterized as acoustic Native Americana with qualities of blues, bluegrass, jazz, jam, reggae, and dance. "A man and a guitar, a lot of soul, and an understanding of the history of soulful men with guitars in American music can sometimes achieve this kind of timelessness in their work…,” comments Richard Higgs (Public Radio Tulsa). “Cary Morin has the chops and is one of the best acoustic pickers on the scene today. [His] performances…would stand out, variously, among the old-school delta blues pliers, the Greenwich Village folk crowd at the end of the 1950s, the back-to nature bards of the late '60s, or today's thriving singer/songwriter scene. Morin references all these styles; they're in his vocabulary, but he's no dilettante. His engaging sound is his alone..." Morin’s third solo release, Tiny Town, follows close on the heels of an international tour that spanned the U.S. and reached as far as France and Denmark. Crow tribal member and son of an air force officer, Morin was born in Billings, Montana. He spent the bulk of his youth in Great Falls, where he cut his teeth picking guitar standards at neighborhood get-togethers, before relocating to Northern Colorado. There, his musical career hit the ground running with The Atoll, a band he founded in 1989 and that toured nationally, gaining a devoted following. Later, he achieved international acclaim with The Pura Fé Trio, for whom the single “Ole Midlife Crisis,” which Morin wrote and performed with Pura Fé, placed at number 17 on France’s iTunes blues chart. With The Atoll and The Pura Fé Trio, and as a solo artist, Morin has played celebrated venues across the globe, including Paris Jazz Festival, Winter Park Jazz Festival, Folk Alliance International, River People Festival, Shakori Hills Festival, the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, And most recently Rochefort En Accords festival in France and The Copenhagen Blues Festival. Morin’s stage credits also include Tribe at the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix, and co-authorship of Turtle Island a 50-member production that played two consecutive years to sold-out audiences in Northern Colorado. With the Red Willow Dancers, he was a guest of the internationally renowned Kodo Drummers, performing at their 1998 Spring Festival and additional dates in Japan. He has produced or performed on over 15 recordings, and has toured across the US, as well as Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, and the UK. Morin’s performances have reached millions on national TV in Japan, France, and the UK, as well as on national radio in the US (NPR’s Beale Street Caravan), UK (BBC’s Whose London), France (RFI), Switzerland, and Belgium. For two consecutive years (2013 and 2014), Cary won the Colorado Blues Challenge Solo Championship. He was also nominated for Aboriginal Entertainer of the Year and Best Blues CD in the Aboriginal People's Choice Music Awards. In 2013, he received a Lifetime achievement award from the Fort Collins Music Association (FoCoMA) and won the Colorado Fan Favorite Poll in the blues category for his second solo release, Streamline. In addition to his solo pursuits, Cary Morin performs with Young Ancients, a collaboration with John Magnie and Steve Amedée of The Subdudes.

Ana Egge & The Sentimentals Locked Topic 0 A. Egge   CONTACT INFO: PHONE: 718-724-3267 EMAIL: anaegge2000@yahoo.com CATEGORY OF FOLK: Americana/Folk LOCATION: Brooklyn, NY/Copenhagen, DK DESCRIPTION OF MUSIC: For the first time in a career with many highlights (including recordings with Steve Earle and Ron Sexsmith), Egge gave herself over to a collaborative process, working with Danish indie band The Sentimentals to write and record the songs on "Say That Now" in Copenhagen. Egge’s signature blend of American prairie folk mixed with clarion-call country shines through. On “Promises to Break,” their combined voices rise in glorious church-steeple harmony. It’s a song Egge and Hansen wrote together that speaks to the universality of forbidden love: “On my shoulder’s my hometown I’m trying to escape / On my hand is the number for calling your name / It’s a matter of leaving before my lies come true / Before my hometown finds out about you.” Hansen’s subsequent song “He’s a Killer Now” is a heart-rending meditation on the kind of terrorism currently gripping Europe, looking at the tragic deaths in a 2015 Danish shooting from a mother’s perspective. “Away We Go Again” is Egge’s attempt to grapple with the shock of Michael Brown’s tragic death and the Ferguson protests. With good friends and loving family around them, Ana Egge & The Sentimentals found the space to create an album that looks both inward to the human journey and outward to the communities we build to survive this trip. We'd love to play your private showcase at Folk Alliance this year! Check out our FB for more info: https://www.facebook.com/saythatnow/
