Known for taking the fiddle into genres where it's rarely seen, Jordan nonetheless grew up on traditional Celtic music and therefore good ol' jigs and reels will always have a special place in his heart and in his performances. His new album, Into the Cold, is comprised of original songs deeply rooted in the Celtic tradition but made unique by funk and jam influences. Contact Jordan directly at Jordan@jordantwmusic.com to attend a pre concert workshop titled “Genre- Hopping” from 12 noon to 1 PM, pre registration required. www.JordanTWmusic. com.

From the White Mountains of New Hampshire comes a unique blend of harmonies and guitars from the duo of Kathy Bennett and Thom Perkins. The pair performs a startling array of original songs with powerful lyrics and melodies, coupled with exceptionally strong vocals and guitar playing. http://www.bennettandperkins.com/

Seth Connelly is the consummate sideman, the versatile solo performer, the integral band member.  He performs with the bands, "The Salty Dawgs", "The Seeing Eye Boys", & "The Folk Tradition". http://www.sethconnelly.com/“Lost Minds Bluegrass Band”, Bob & Diane Kordas with Todd Thurlow, will be your host band.
