THE SALUDA MOONLIGHTERS featuring BAILEY DEE: The new country band fronted by Bailey Dee.

MATT CAMPBELL: Matt Campbell is an American troubadour, the likes of Woody Guthrie and Ernest Tubb. That is to say, as a songwriter and performer Campbell covers considerableground. Part poet, politician, and provocateur, he is a familiar and timeless presence. Perhaps he wears a suit or pearl buttons, boots and a hat. He almost always wears a hat, and offers a handshake. And a smile. With vivid lyrical imagery and melodies he sings songs that raise questions, songs that give thanks, songs that stir up long forgotten and fleeting memories. Across the guitar strings, his fingers like a frieght train, or a feather bed. And a voice like no one else. Remarkably, his own. Too convincing to be classic. He'll want to know who you are and where you're from. To hear a good joke or debate the issue of the day. Or quietly raise a glass to your hospitality, for listening. With a "thank you" and a "see you next time," off he goes, to count the miles until he does it again. Up and out with sun. Boots and a hat. Almost always a hat. And a smile.


GLASS MOUNTAIN: Glass Mountain is Heather Malyuk, Sara Leginsky and Ari Bolles. Inspired by a love of old-time and early country, the women of Glass Mountain make music that captures the grit and beauty of the American folk tradition. Their shows have the raw, spontaneous energy of a jam and the soulful intent of a gospel hymn. The trio of singers and multi-instrumentalists first met through their involvement in Chicago’s folk music scene, and quickly found a kinship playing heartsick love songs, dark mountain ballads, and blazing fiddle tunes. They each bring a different musical vision and experience - with backgrounds in classical performance, old-time jams, and the singer-songwriter circuit - to create a sound that both celebrates and moves beyond the traditional.
