Show Lineup

Mama’s Broke

(Nova Scotia)
Genre: Folk

Mama’s Broke is a powerful duo that deliver a compelling performance with heart and raw energy.  Although highly influenced by their Canadian roots, Lisa and Amy are based out of nowhere and everywhere.

Their two strong voices blend to create haunting harmonies, while they artfully juggle fiddle, banjo, guitar and mandolin, and incorporate traditional dance and foot percussion into their performance.  Their original -and often dark- compositions push the boundaries of tradition and the constraints of genre.  Drawing from old-time, Quebecois, blues, punk, celtic, balkand and doom metal, they create a soundscape that is both familiar and new.

Paper Wings

(Nashville, Tennessee)
Genre: Folk

Long-time friends and collaborators Emily Mann and Wila Frank, known together as Paper Wings, dream up warm, pastoral folk songs suited to wandering through a forest or field, quiet contemplation, and long winding journeys. Furnished with delicate banjo and spellbinding harmonies so close you often can’t tell their voices apart, Frank & Mann deliver dynamic performances emboldened by the strength of their sincere songwriting. The duo have an uncommon ability to tastefully reference nostalgic sounds of American folk music while maintaining their own compelling style of artful and unpretentious lyricism. The strength and solitude one finds in the wilderness is a theme throughout their writing, and they lovingly transport listeners to open landscapes in which to find comfort and ask the questions which we all have in common.

Both with roots in rural parts of the West Coast, Mann & Frank eventually found their way to Nashville where they recorded their debut album Paper Wings in 2017 and sophomore album Clementine which came out in 2019. In 2020 the duo were on the road opening for Avi Kaplan’s ‘I’ll Get By’ tour. It was soon after this that they shared Marigold, the first pre-released single from the upcoming album which is a delicate and hope-filled ode to new beginnings and second chances. This is the first peek into their upcoming album which explores themes of grounding and rediscovering a sense of innocence.

Dandy L. Freling

Genre: Americana

A Boot Stompin’ Finger Pickin’ Folkie

A highway-kind traveler combining a touch of the high and lonesome hollers of the Appalachian hill people with the low-down, dusty grooves of the cosmic cowboys, Dandy has created a unique songwriter banquet sure to satisfy the hunger of any weary passerby. A boot stompin’ finger picker with remnant hollers of the greats of our past – Don’t be afraid to stop awhile, and fill up your plate, there’s plenty to go around.
