Folk musician Kieran Kane picked up his first instrument at the age of 9 and the rest was history. Falling in love with folk and bluegrass in his early teens, Kane became a masterful artist and eventually went on to help form the iconic country duo the O’Kanes. As a solo artist, Kieran Kane is a tour-de-force performer, singer, and composer of folk music. Alongside Kieran Kane is Rayna Gellert, a talented fiddler who approaches roots music with a keen appreciation for the musical traditions of Appalachia. Her talent and style have led her to collaborate with artists such as Scott Miller and Abigail Washburn. Gellert has also contributed her talents to the roots band, Uncle Earl.

Blues artist Dana Fuchs infuses her soul into each and every performance. Her stylized singing and utter love for her art envelops the audience in an embrace that stays with audience members long after they return home. Fuchs has been compared to rock icon Janis Joplin not only for her raspy-voiced singing, but also for the spirit she brings to her song. Fuchs’ newest album, “Love Lives On,” was released in 2018.
