JOHN CRAIGIE
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.

LEIGH JONES
She has had the itch to write songs most of her life, but it wasn't until she received a ukulele as a Christmas gift in 2009 that she, at long last, began composing in earnest.  Leigh grew up in North Carolina, performing in local theatre whenever she had the chance, and eventually went on to earn a Drama degree from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. Over the past three years, she has completed extensive tours 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, Emmylou Harris, 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.
