For the past decade, John Craigie has "lived the life romantic" of a continuously touring folk-singer, taking his unique musical style across the United States and the world. A singer, songwriter and storyteller, he stays true to the essence of folk music, and the traditions of the seminal writers of our past century. With timeless melodies and insightful lyricsinterspersed with witty storytellinghis songs take many poetic turns before bringing his listeners back home. His themes range from social commentary to personal empowerment, political satire, and modern love. John's live performances in private homes, cafes, festivals, and sold-out venues inspire and delight his audiences, who welcome him like a long-lost son and return to see him whenever he visits. He has traveled around the world, having played in all 50 states and beyond, bringing his music to nearly every corner of the planet. His fans span generations, political ideologies and geographic locations, but they are all charmed by the dynamic yet humble troubadour peering out from under his signature cap. John Craigie writes, sings, and plays for the people.
Leigh Jones is a folk singer-songwriter from North Carolina, by way of New York City. She earned a Drama degree from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, but in recent years has turned her focus to writing and playing music. She has toured throughout the US and abroad, and in the fall of 2012 she released her debut LP, Worth Wild. Sparked by relationships, travel, and a keen sense of whimsy, Leigh's music evokes the spirit of city life, while allowing her southern roots to shine gloriously through. Drawing inspiration from such artists as Joni Mitchell, Gillian Welch, Neko Case, and so many of her own peers, Leigh performs with the theatricality of a trained actor while her simultaneously sweet and dynamic melodies capture the soulfulness that is at the core of her songwriting.
