John McCutcheon

“John McCutcheon is not only one of the best musicians in the USA, but also a great singer, songwriter, and song leader. And not just incidentally, he is committed to helping hard-working people everywhere to organize and push this world in a better direction.” - Pete Seeger
John Kirk & Trish Miller

“With such a widely varied repertoire, there’s really something for everyone. These folks are worth seeking out.” - Sing Out Magazine
Dana & Susan Robinson

“Dana Robinson is one of the few contemporary singer-songwriters whose songs display a strong respect for the centuries-old folk tradition.” - Phil Shapiro, Bound for Glory radio show, Ithaca, NY
Hey Mavis

“Marvelous … This is a charming—and serious—banjo-driven sound … adds up to rocking Appalachian music from Akron, Ohio.” - Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
Maria Gillard

“Maria Gillard sings from the soul, with a clear-eyed vision that cuts straight to your heart. Every time Maria sings, I learn something more about me.” - Julia Figueras, WXXI
