Myriad Artists Virtual Showcases
Damn Tall Buildings
Damn Tall Buildings blend elements of bluegrass, blues, roots-rock and vintage swing into a joyous, wild and captivating musical adventure. “Think of: The Carter Family for the millennial generation. Old Crow Medicine Show meets Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros meets Flatt & Scruggs meets Nickel Creek, with a dash of Avett Brothers and a sprinkle of Johnny Cash.” — The Boston Globe
The Barefoot Movement – Holiday
The Barefoot Movement invites you to join them for their holiday celebration performance. You’ll hear acoustic renditions of everything from Chuck Berry’s “Run Run Rudolph” to Perry Como’s “It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas” and emotional takes on the more tender songs of the season like “Oh Holy Night” and “Hark The Herald Angels Sing.”
“In a crowded field of Americana artists who claim influence from disparate genres…. Violet Bell truly pushes against the limitations and expectations of genres and genders.. Ross’s soulful vocal gymnastics sound downright wild… defying stylistic bounds.” Indyweek
Lizzy Ross (guitar/banjo/vocals) and Omar Ruiz-Lopez (cello, violin, guitar, mandolin,vocals) blend pop sensibilities with classical chops and folk traditions creating an “elegant marriage of strings and vocals…delicate yet powerful,” (Encore Magazine)
The Barefoot Movement
“They perform barefoot, yes, but what you’ll remember is how the music moved you. Lead singer Noah Wall’s voice can blast you backward as well as pull you in, and the rest of the band has the harmonies and instrumental chops to support that ride.” — News & Observer
The Barefoot Movement integrate bluegrass, blues, folk, rock, country and pop into music that’s delightfully fresh. Shows feature original songs and reimagined cover tunes with tight three-part harmonies and hot instrumentals.
Sam Reider is redefining American music on the accordion. He has performed alongside pop stars, jazz and folk musicians ranging from Jon Batiste and Stay Human, Sierra Hull to Venezuelan cuatro virtuoso Jorge Glem. On Too Hot To Sleep, Reider has assembled a “staggeringly virtuosic band” (RnR Magazine) of young acoustic musicians called The Human Hands.
Seamus Egan has been at the center of the new Irish music scene in America for over twenty years, at the helm of supergroup Solas. Now with Solas on hiatus, he releases his first solo album in 23 years since much the lauded release of When Juniper Sleeps. On Early Bright, we once again see him shining as an instrumentalist, playing tenor banjo, nylon string guitar, low whistles, mandolin, keyboard, and percussion.
