Special Concert: Nic Gareiss, Jack Devereux, & Allison de Groot
Allison de Groot combines love and passion for old-time music, technical skill and a creative approach to the banjo forming her own sound  unique and full of personality. Although firmly rooted in old-time and traditional music, she has shown her ability to collaborate and create outside this genre, pushing the boundaries of the clawhammer banjo. Allison has toured all over the world, and is currently performing with The Goodbye Girls, Molsky's Mountian Drifters (Bruce Molsky & Stash Wyslouch) and various other Canadian and American artists. In 2012, Allison was awarded the Slaight Family Scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. where she went through the American Roots Program on clawhammer banjo. "Allison has it all.....great clawhammer technique, exquisite tone, timing, taste. She has deep roots in the old time tradition and yet she's fearless when it comes to breaking new ground. It's a thrill whenever I get a chance to play with her."- Tony Trischka. www.allisondegroot.com

Jack Devereux's music is a clear reflection of his home town, Asheville North Carolina, a place marked for both its progressive and urbane arts community, and its fundamental connection to the surrounding Appalachian mountains. Similarly, Jack's playing is meticulously studied and unabashedly creative, but still organic, and deeply rooted in tradition. In addition to his roots in Southern Appalachian and Irish fiddling, Jack earned a degree in violin performance from the Berklee College of Music in Boston. At Berklee, Jack studied jazz and improvisation with players such as John McGann, Darol Anger, Matt Glaser and Jamey Haddad, while continuing his work in traditional music with Bruce Molsky. Also while at Berklee, Jack worked closely with Matt Glaser as the student work-study for the American Roots Music Department, helping to develop curriculum for this newly instituted program. Since graduating from Berklee in 2012, Jack has worked as a sideman with various bands in Nashville, North Carolina and the North East, led bands of his own, and collaborated and performed with musicians across North America. www.jackdevereux.com

Michigan-born dancer and musician Nic Gareiss has been described by the Irish Times as "the human epitome of the unbearable lightness of being," and "the most inventive and expressive step dancer on the scene" by the Boston Herald. His choreographic work re-imagines movement as a musical activity, recasting dance as medium that appeals to both eyes and ears. Gareiss draws from many percussive dance traditions, weaving together a dance technique facilitating his love of improvisation, traditional dance footwork vocabulary, and musical collaboration. He has concertized internationally for over ten years with many of the luminaries of traditional music, including Frankie Gavin, Dervish, Bill Frisell, Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky, Phil Wiggins, Buille, Solas, Liz Carroll, Martin Hayes, The Gloaming and The Chieftains. Nic holds a degree in Anthropology from Central Michigan University and a MA in Ethnochoreology from the University of Limerick. www.nicgareiss.com
