    WILLIE WATSON is best-known for his work with his previous band Old Crow Medicine Show and a large part of the reason that banjo and guitar driven music is heard everywhere in the air these days. Born in Watkins Glen, NY, Watson discovered North Carolina Appalachian music and began to unearth old Folkways albums. His debut solo album, ‘Folk Singer Vol. 1′, was produced by David Rawlings at Woodland Sound Studios, the studio he co-owns with associate producer Gillian Welch in Nashville, TN, over the course of a pair of two-day sessions, for their own Acony Records label. The album spans ten songs from the American folk songbook and features Watson’s skillful and subtle banjo and guitar accompaniments with his soaring vocals. williewatson.com

    THE INFAMOUS STRINGDUSTERS sound like no one else, combining virtuosic chops on five traditional bluegrass instruments, with an ethos of pushing the genre forward. When the band first emerged eight years ago, they were immediately branded fast-picking Nashville wunderkinds, a new-generation super group built to revive the high lonesome sound. Then came immediate accolades—IBMA awards, a chart-topping self-titled album and a Grammy nomination for “Best Country Instrumental”. Having just released their fifth studio album ‘Let It Go’ on the band’s own High Country Recordings, the band finds itself on firm footing, at ease with an evolving sound that defies categorization. thestringdusters.com

    ELEPHANT REVIVAL is a soulful, seductive quiver of songwriters and multi-instrumentalists that reign from points all across America. This Nederland, Colorado quintet are, needless to say, quite a sound to be experienced – especially when they fall into the pocket of a groove containing elements of gypsy, rock, Celtic, alt-country and folk. Each Elephant possesses remarkable vocal abilities which are highlighted during every performance. ‘These Changing Skies’ is the band’s newest release and was part of NPR’s “Top 10 Folk and Americana Albums Of 2013.”elephantrevival.com
