No stranger to fans of the new folk music coming from all corners of the USA. Alongside artists like Old Crow Medicine Show and Pokey LaFarge, Woody continues to forage thru the secret world of old 78's and to write new chapters in the Anthology of American Music. Integrating sounds from Leadbelly to Bob Dylan, from Woodie Guthrie to Preservation Hall, Woody Pines belts out songs of fast cars, pretty women and hard luck with a distinctive vintage twang. The Woody Pines sound is completed with Shawn Supra slapping away on the upright bass, Brad Tucker on lead guitar and backing vocals, Joe Giotta on drums and Woody on guitar, harmonica and lead vocals. They have logged over 7800 miles in their van last year, with two trips to the UK and Ireland. ‘Counting Alligators’ was #7 on the Americana Charts. Crackerjack musicianship goes a long way toward a band’s greatness, but showmanship seals the deal. Pines, on stage, is an old soul and natural performer, storied and steeped in the best of American music. Live, the group infuses a hundred years of American music into their performance. It's a fast-paced, swinging, high-energy show. Grab your girl, your pals, tape your soul on your sleeve and go see this band!

Rising out of Nashville’s thriving independent music scene, the Farewell Drifters are an alt-folk band known for their 60’s era-inspired harmonies and adventurous musical energy. They have crafted a seamless blend of intellectual psychedelic pop with melodic songs that openly explore the brightest and darkest corners of life with raw intensity. The Farewell Drifters’ latest album, Tomorrow Forever, was released in January and has been met with much critical acclaim. With their shimmering harmonies, gently propulsive acoustic instrumentation and disarmingly honest songwriting, the Farewell Drifters have arrived at an engaging, inventive musical hybrid all their own - pure, but not so simple; accessible and highly welcoming, yet highly personal. Since setting out over eight years ago, they have casually but clearly defied any preconceptions based on their lineup (acoustic guitar, mandolin, fiddle, upright bass), delighting audiences everywhere from MerleFest to intimate listening rooms with a sound that suspends classic elements in fresh new surroundings. The Farewell Drifters have been featured by some of the nation's leading music press including NPR, CMT.com, Paste Magazine and American Songwriter. In addition to the critical praise, their albums have charted on Billboard and the Americana Radio Chart.

National Touring Artists Greg Greenway, Pat Wictor and Joe Jencks have made their mark as veteran touring singer-songwriters, but Brother Sun is no songwriter's round. The trio's harmonies, as much as their lyrics, tell what they are about: warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, rousing as a call to arms. Fusing folk, Americana, blues, pop, jazz, rock, and a cappella singing, Brother Sun is an explosion of musical diversity and harmony, in the finest of male singing traditions. From three major points on the map Boston, New York and Chicago - Greg, Pat and Joe have blended themselves into Brother Sun: a unique celebration of the amazing power of singing together. As they will tell you, the music of Brother Sun is not resident in any one of them – but rather it exists in the space between them. Audiences feel this sincerity immediately. Their combined musical skills make for an unforgettable experience - three rich voices blending on a well-crafted foundation of guitar, slide guitar, piano, ukulele, and bouzouki. Brother Sun's debut CD announced to the world that these respected singer-songwriters had banded together to produce some of the most powerful male harmonies on the acoustic music scene. After two years of nationwide touring and performances marked by outstanding songwriting, ethereal harmonies, off-the-cuff humor and standing ovations, they have released Some Part of the Truth: a CD that goes a large step further in revealing Brother Sun not only as singers, but as complete musicians. The response to the trio’s music has been tremendous! From main stage performances with standing ovations at Kerrville, Falcon Ridge, Philadelphia, Old Songs, Connecticut and other Folk Festivals; to sold out concerts throughout the U.S.A, Brother Sun has earned the respect of fans, colleagues and presenters alike. And, their music and message appeals to fans of both contemporary and traditional music.

David Michael Miller, Buffalo-based singer/songwriter, has his roots deep in the church and gospel music. His music is anchored deeply in a roots gospel, blues and soul foundation. He fronted several bands as lead singer and primary songwriter, getting airplay all around the country in college markets and gospel stations with previous projects. After a hiatus from music, in 2005 he launched back into the local scene and, inspired by professional artists such as Tommy Z, he carried his gospel roots into the nationally known blues and soul scene. This led him to the last 3+ years with Dive House Union (DHU) as lead singer, primary songwriter and secondary guitarist. Dive House Union has shared the stage with such greats as Gary Clark Jr, Bobby Blue Bland, Jonny Lang, Jimmie Vaughan, Shemekia Copeland, Joe Bonamassa and many more. They also represented Western New York in Memphis, for the International Blues Competition in early 2013. DHU has released two live albums recorded locally at iconic rooms, Kleinhans Music Hall and The Aurora Theater. Recently, David partnered with local producer Jesse Miller for a couple of solo albums. The first of which, “The Poison’s I’ve Sipped,” was released last year with a gospel album to follow in 2014. He competed in the local Memphis Bound competition with his son, Joshua Miller, and won the privilege of representing Western New York again in Memphis. David Michael Miller will be bringing his songs to the Creative Arts Center supported by local and national talent including members of the world-renowned Campbell Brothers, featuring Darick Campbell (lap steel), Carlton Campbell (drums), Jim Ehinger (keyboards), Barry Arbogast (sax), Robert Freightrain Parker (bass) and Serena Young and Jasmine Neeley on backup vocals.

Multi-instrumentalist David Lindley performs music that redefines the word "eclectic." Well known for his many years as the featured accompanist with Jackson Browne and leader of his own band El Rayo-X, he has long championed the concept of world music. The David Lindley electro-acoustic performance effortlessly combines American folk, blues, and bluegrass traditions with elements from African, Arabic, Asian, Celtic, Malagasy, and Turkish musical sources. Lindley incorporates an incredible array of stringed instruments including but not limited to Kona and Weissenborn Hawaiian lap steel guitar, Turkish saz and chumbus, Middle Eastern oud, and Irish bouzouki. Lindley is particularly known for his work as a premier session musician. Aside from his own solo and band efforts generating over 20 albums, it is difficult to list all the musicians who have collaborated with him. He has left a visible mark on the work of Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon, Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, David Crosby, Dolly Parton, Bob Dylan and Rod Stewart, to name but a few. He has also performed with fellow guitarists Ry Cooder and Henry Kaiser. David Lindley's latest self-released solo CD Big Twang features David playing a variety of stringed instruments including Weissenborn, Hawaiian lap steel and violin. On the CD David performs both instrumental tracks as well as new vocal originals such as Down In The Vatican Library alongside some of his favorite songs from over the years including Warren Zevon's Monkey Wash Donkey Rinse, Blind Willie Johnson's Soul Of A Man and Steve Earle's Copperhead Road, among others. At his expansive and eclectic live performances, David Lindley consistently gives one of the most unique concert experiences available to adventuresome music listeners. "Mr. Dave's" uncanny vocal mimicry, eye-popping wardrobe and demented sense of humor make his onstage banter a highlight of the show.
