Sputyen Duvil (NY) / Sarah & The Cross Cuts
Sputyen Duvil (NY)
Hailing from the Hudson Valley, Spuyten Duyvil's (pronounced "SPITE-en DIE-vil") soaring vocals, traditional jug-band energy, slide guitar and Chicago-style blues harp propel the listener on a barn-burning romp through the last 100 years of American Roots music. "They are the hottest new band in folk music ... and one of the best", says legendary WXPN Folk DJ, Gene Shay. According to WFMT-Chicago's Rich Warren, listening to this joyous band for the first time is like "throwing a cherry bomb into a lake". It wakes you up.
Sarah and the Cross Cuts
Sarah Holtschlag's songs are an uppercut as much as a french kiss. From fightin and truckin songs to woebegone lullabies about forget-you-not low-flying birds, her sounds charm as well as haunt, tilt as well as persuade.
In the growing up times, Sarah lived in the foothills of factory towers in mid-Michigan. There she learned to play the singing saw (a 26" stainless steel blade from ace hardware).
