James Reams
Nominated by the International Bluegrass Music Association in 2002 as Emerging Artist of the Year, James Reams & the Barnstormers play traditional bluegrass music with an old-time country edge and a sound thats very much their own. They feature hard driving rhythm and 3-part harmonies that take you back to a time before bluegrass was smoothed out for the uninitiated, the ill-prepared or the faint of heart. The band includes James on guitar and lead vocals; Mark Farrell on mandolin and harmony; Doug Nicolaisen on banjo; and Carl Hayano on upright bass and harmony.  Space is limited, so purchase your tickets early!

Zolla Boys
Ben Zolla and his brother Sam, are young and talented plus still holding onto tradition and bringing it into the new age. The boys have found their voices; from songs of the Louvin Brothers, Stanley Brothers, and Jim and Jesse. They have been featured on the stage at the Grey Fox Bluegrass festival, and perform at numerous bluegrass festivals throughout New England.

Two Lazy Aces
The Lazy Aces began as an old-time string band trio whose music ranged from Appalachian ballads to Honky Tonk to modal melodies and breakdowns. They performed at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Clearwater Festival, the Brandywine Mountain Music Festival and elsewhere and recorded Still Lazy After All These Years for the Marimac label.

Though the larger-format Lazy Aces are no longer active, founding members Dave Howard and Bill Christophersen have continued to play together as a duo. They were featured at Pinewoods Folk Music Camps American Week and, at the New York Folk Music Societys Memorial Day weekend retreat, where they performed old-time tunes and country songs drawn from the likes of Gid Tanners Skillet Lickers, the Carter Family, FiddlinArthur Smith, the Louvin Brothers, Lefty Frizzell and Ray Price

Henry Sapoznik
Sapoznik's banjoistic chickens come home to roost in this long-awaited return to old-time music and the 5-string.  -- recent quote concerning his recent album featuring old-time and Bluegrass tunes. He is an award-winning author, record and radio producer and performer of traditional American and Yiddish music.
