Seth Mulder & Midnight Run in Concert
Hailing from the Gateway of the Great Smoky Mountains, Seth Mulder & Midnight Run began its journey in February of 2015, at the Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Made up of four like-minded musicians and graduates of college music programs, this group of friends and musicians created a band tied to the rich traditions of bluegrass music, yet one that offers a fresh approach to that "High Lonesome" sound. With each member drawing from a variety of influences, including bluegrass, country, and rock.
The band stays true to their musical roots with tight harmonies and reverence for “old-style” bluegrass music, all while stretching the boundaries of the genre with their song selection, stage antics, and exciting performance.

Suzie Ungerleider in Concert
Throughout my life, I have searched to define who I am and who I want to be. Over the last few years, this led me to look at the name Oh Susanna – a persona I took on 25 years ago – and see if it still expressed who I am today. I realized it had begun to feel like an old costume I used to wear but no longer fit. Last summer, I also came face to face with the song’s original racist lyrics and knew that its racism was definitely not what I stand for nor want to perpetuate. I decided I wanted to take positive action and leave the name and the song “Oh Susanna” behind. I embrace this opportunity to fully merge the artistic and personal parts of myself, to stand up for what I believe is right, to be who I am and who I want to be. And so, my friends, my name is Suzie Ungerleider.

Gabrielle Macrae & Barry Southern - The Horsenecks
Original and Traditional Folk and Roots Music from Astoria, Oregon.
Their sound is centered around the pairing of the signature rhythmic Appalachian fiddle style of Oregonian Gabrielle Macrae and the inspired guitar and driving yet subtle banjo playing of Liverpudlian Barry Southern. Gabrielle's playing style is the result of being raised in the Old Time music hotbed of Portland, OR and being exposed to the fiddle traditions of the Southeast US through years of traveling to festivals and learning from some of the greatest players in the genre. Her love of traditional music brought her to North Carolina as a teenager where she fully immersed herself in the music of the region and gained notoriety in the Old Time Music world as a clawhammer banjo player after releasing an album with the Macrae Sisters in 2008 that received glowing reviews and became one of the iconic Old Time albums of it’s generation. Barry’s banjo playing ranges from thrilling and high-octane to moody and captivating, and his versatility shines whether playing clawhammer or driving three-finger banjo. Also an accomplished guitarist, Barry has been consistently active in Liverpools music scene for over 20 years, playing lead guitar with cult heroes Tramp Attack ( Must Destroy Records) and on into the UK Old Time and Bluegrass scene, playing with multiple groups.
£10 early bird ticket or £12 on the night.
May Panton & Sanders in Concert
A Musical Presentation & Concert following the path of music from Scotland and Ulster to the USA, over many generations of emigration.
The influence of traditional Scottish music permeates American music from 'old-time' dance tunes to bluegrass instrumentals, to 'folk' and 'country music' ballads. May, Panton and Sanders provide an entertaining program that includes examples of tunes that came directly to America from Scotland as well as American traditional and contemporary tunes that were directly influenced by Scottish music. They illustrate the fascinating way that America modified Scottish tunes (sometimes by simplifying, sometimes by making them more complex), always with a tip-of-the-hat to the original melody that remains intact and recognizable.
The presentation of songs and instrumentals will feature fiddle, mandolin, banjo, and guitar.
The Presentation will reference the book :-
