About the Artists:
For the past quarter-century, Colorado’s Leftover Salmon has established itself as one of the great purveyors of Americana music, digging deep into the well that supplies its influences; rock ‘n’ roll, folk, bluegrass, Cajun, soul, zydeco, jazz, and blues. They are firmly settled in the long lineage of bands that defy simple categorization, instead of setting their own musical agenda. They are the direct descendants of bands like Little Feat, New Grass Revival, Grateful Dead and The Band, born of the heart and soul of America itself, playing music that reflects the sounds emanating from the Appalachian hills, the streets of New Orleans, the clubs of Chicago, the plains of Texas, and the mountains of Colorado. During Leftover Salmon’s twenty-five plus years as a band, they have headlined shows and festivals from coast to coast, released nine albums, and maintained a vibrant, relevant and influential voice in the music world. Over that time, Leftover Salmon’s sound has grown and evolved while staying true to the roots and guiding spirit of the band’s founding members – mandolinist/singer Drew Emmitt and guitarist/singer Vince Herman. The evolution of Leftover Salmon’s music is influenced by Emmitt and Herman’s keen musical instincts and follows a musical path that adheres to the deep tradition the duo started when they first formed the group along with deceased banjo player Mark Vann. The addition of new band members over the years has nurtured an unmistakable evolution and freshness in Leftover Salmon’s sound and has added an edge to the long-lasting power of the band’s music. Today, Leftover Salmon endures as a vital and significant presence and holds an unequivocal stature as a truly legendary band. Now fueled by the rhythm section of drummer Alwyn Robinson, keyboardist Erik Deustch and longtime bassist Greg Garrison, the band is currently enjoying a creative renaissance. The front line trio of Emmitt, Herman, and prodigious banjo player Andy Thorn are continually challenged and pushed in new directions as the band collectively searches for new spaces and sounds within their extensive catalog of songs.
During the ‘This Too Shall Light’ sessions, Amy Helm was literally taken 3,000 miles out of her comfort zone – leaving the family studio in Woodstock, New York for Los Angeles’ iconic United Recording Studios, the same compound where The Beach Boys recorded ‘Pet Sounds’ and “California Dreamin” was tracked by The Mamas & The Papas. It was there that Helm began her collaboration with Joe Henry, the three-time GRAMMY-winning producer known for his work with artists like Bonnie Raitt, Elvis Costello and Lizz Wright. Together, in just four days, the pair traversed decades of material, stretching from early ‘70s Allen Toussaint through contemporary Americana darlings the Milk Carton Kids. Coupled with originals by Helm and Henry, and a pair of tributes to the singer’s late father, the ten-song collection serves as the most complete look at Amy Helm as an artist to date.
Dead Winter Carpenters
Hailing from North Lake Tahoe, Calif., Americana band Dead Winter Carpenters has built a reputation for pouring their heart and soul into each performance. In just a few years, they have positioned themselves, wrote Portland Metronome, “at the forefront of a youthful generation trying to redefine what string music is and what it can do.” Reminiscent of genre-benders like Jack White, Chris Thile, and Sam Bush, Dead Winter Carpenters harmoniously blends refined musical ability with a scarcely restrained tendency to let it all hang out. The result is a controlled burn, a riveting sound, and a connection with fans that sells out shows and has the band sharing stages with the likes of Jason Isbell, Greensky Bluegrass, and Hard Working Americans.
Dead Winter Carpenters is a band with the ambition, talent, and authenticity.
Michelle Moonshine has honed her craft in producing her own blend of Country driven Americana. With upbeat tempos, catchy vocal lines and heartfelt lyrics; it's still her unique voice that truly engages a listener at a performance. Her timbre can be described as incredibly sweet and whimsical, yet saturated with a feeling that draws you into listening for every word. Since enlisting a group of talented musicians to serve as her backing band in 2015, they've developed a dynamic together which is both a treat to listen to and watch.
