One of the most multi-faceted minds in roots music, Alison Brown is a GRAMMY-winning musician, GRAMMY-nominated producer, former investment banker and co-founder of The Compass Records Group. Alison has built a reputation as one of today’s most innovative banjo players, known for taking the instrument far beyond its Appalachian roots by blending bluegrass and jazz influences into a sonic tapestry that has earned praise from tastemakers including The Wall Street Journal, CBS Sunday Morning and People. On her most recent release On Banjo, Alison continues her musical explorations on a set of original compositions with special guests including Steve Martin, Kronos Quartet, Anat Cohen, Sierra Hull and members of the Alison Brown Quintet. A pioneer among women in the music industry, Alison was the first female to win an Instrumentalist of the Year award from the IBMA; in 2019, she became the first female 5-string banjoist to be inducted into the American Banjo Museum’s Hall of Fame.
With the release of their new record Angels in the Wreckage (produced by Dirk Powell), the Vermont-based American Roots band Low Lily brings their infectious sound to a new level. With the energy of fiddle music, the introspective quality of contemporary folk, the precision of bluegrass, and the drive of Americana, the members of Low Lily (Liz Simmons, Flynn Cohen, and Natalie Padilla) combine their individual talents into one stunning soundscape. Low Lily has shared their signature sound with enthusiastic audiences throughout North America and the UK, garnering two #1 songs on international folk radio and two Independent Music Award wins. In 2018, the band released a full-length album with 2X award-winning title track “10,000 Days Like These" and their original song “Hope Lingers On”, which has been sung by choirs around the world as an anthem for peace and justice.
Scottish lever harpist Lucie Hendry has joined forces with her Danish counterparts to create a captivating fusion of original Scottish folk with contemporary jazz influences, inspired by her time living in Denmark since 2021. Skilfully blending uplifting melodies and intricate musical textures, they offer a fresh interpretation of folk music.
