“Fred Gillen Jr”
Fred Gillen Jr is a singer/ songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist from New York’s artistically rich Hudson Valley. He seamlessly incorporates folk, punk, rock, spoken word, country, and Americana styles into his music.


“The Angry O’Haras”
Based in Ridgefield, Conn. Their Progressive Bluegrass style will drive deep into your soul as they get the most out of their acoustic instrumentation. Instead of having a lead singer, they use a nonstop orchestration of unconventional vocals while delivering plenty of three and four part harmony singing. The majority of their songs are reinventions of traditional folk songs, favorites you may have grown up with or something new with an added twist.

When did you hear songs like Wooly Bully, Gimme Some Lovin, Evil Ways, and Runaround Sue and not want to get up and dance?  We, the members of Burnin’ Love, enjoy playing as much as the audience enjoys listening. Members of the band are:  Ken Harper on keyboard, Mike Desisto on lead guitar, Ed Heinzinger on drums, Tony Cataldo on bass, and Mike Rendine and Andi DePalma vocalists.

“Bruce Carroll Band”
Bruce T Carroll has returned to his roots and his first and abiding love: lyric songwriting. With the release last year of his first official album, Ruckus and Romance Bruce has forged a new career as a singer-songwriter using irony and imagery as tools in trade. While promoting the album, Bruce has shared the stage with the likes of Slaid Cleaves, Jimmy LaFave, Dan Bern, Ellis Paul, and Rita Coolidge. Bruce’s brand new release, a six-song EP called “Finding You”, is a sort of lyrical tone poem, with the theme of finding, or regaining, something that might be missing, or lost. His song  “Fox In The Henhouse” may, or may not be, his definitive take on the state of the union…

Pluck & Rail is the acoustic intersection of Andrew Sussman of the prog-rock heavyweights, Frogg Café, and George Gierer of the folkabilly band, South County. George bought his first guitar at age 17 and moved to Austin, TX, where he soaked up the sounds of the south and was forever changed. After hearing hearing Eddie Van Halen at the age of 15, the classically trained cellist Sussman starting spinning Bach into the blues and Beethoven into Zappa.  Pluck & Rail’s original compositions are equal parts: Ralph Stanley, The Decemberists, Morphine, Robert Earl Keen, Gillian Welch, Wilco, The Avett Brothers, Roscoe Holcomb, Mumford & Sons and Led Zeppelin, and their live performances blister with a passion and energy not often seen in acoustic music
