Becca Stevens Band

The North Carolina-bred, New York-based singer/composer/guitarist’s status as a lifelong music-maker is more than apparent on the Becca Stevens Band’s Sunnyside debut Weightless. Although she’s already won significant acclaim for her membership in Travis Sullivan’s Bjorkestra and her prestigious collaborations with such esteemed musicians as Taylor Eigsti and Brad Mehldau, the sparkling 12-song set reveals the accomplished young songstress to be a startlingly original, refreshingly distinctive talent in her own right.

Parkington Sisters, Francesca Blanchard opens

Born to each other, a band raised from the beginning, the Parkington Sisters create an aural experience that is both magnetic in its delivery and genuine in its emotional impact. Seeded from a generation of musicians, Rose, Nora, Sarah and Ariel Parkington were raised in a wildly musical household where every room sounded with a spark of song, naturally inspiring their individual hearts and hands to find their own instrumental avenues.

Swing Caravan

Swing Caravan plays lively, nuanced music that is rooted in Gypsy Jazz and the American Songbook. Following in the tradition of Django Reinhardt (from France in the 1930s and 40s), they make playful, improvised folk-jazz beholden to no purist tradition. Swing Caravan interprets Gypsy jazz and a wide range of songs through all sorts of modern and world music filters, making their distinctive sound a fresh alternative to both the old and modern jazz.

Sarah Jarosz

The best and brightest in the acoustic world move the music forward with an awareness of what came before them; that is certainly true of Sarah Jarosz. On her second album for Sugar Hill Records, Follow Me Down, she pays homage to her musical roots while pushing beyond those sometimes limited boundaries, taking us on a journey both dark and mystical.

The Vespers

It’s two sisters, two brothers, four friends, 10 instruments, one fun little folk band. However you do the math the Vespers are a force to be reckoned with.

In the spring of 2010, the newly formed group released their debut album, Tell Your Mama, which has been received greatly by critics and fans alike. The indie release even managed to sneak on to a few top 20 lists before the year’s end. The critics have hailed the band as “magnificently unforgettable” and “fresh and infectious”. “I was just about knocked off my stool”, exclaimed Angie Santiago of No Depression.

Like the Hawaiian Islands themselves, HAPA's Pan-Polynesian music is an amalgam of infuences ranging from ancient genealogical chants to the strummed ballads of Portuguese fisherman, Spanish cowboys, and the inspired melodies and harmonies of the traditional church choirs of the early missionaries. Add to this a dose of American acoustic folk/rock, and you have what has been described as the “most exciting and beautiful contemporary Hawaiian music the world knows!”… (Maui Times).
