*Chatham County Line* is a four-man American roots band that emerged from the bluegrass scene in Raleigh, North Carolina at the turn of the millennium. In their matching suits and ties, gathered around a single microphone, they look like a traditional bluegrass band, but in the words of the Washington Post, “the minor chords, patient tempo, and bittersweet irony owe more to Neil Young than to Bill Monroe. This blend of bluegrass arrangements and folk-rock songwriting has led to five terrific, if underappreciated, studio albums from the North Carolina quartet since 2003.” Their newest album, *Sight and Sound*, is a live album that captures their rich blend of bluegrass, country, and folk. The band features Dave Wilson on guitar and harmonica, John Teer on mandolin and fiddle, Chandler Holt on guitar and banjo, and Greg Readling on piano, pedal steel, and standup bass. All four sing, with Dave most often taking lead. Their vibrant harmonies, poignant arrangements, incisive lyrics, and catchy tunes deliver a contemporary take on timeless traditions.. www.chathamcountyline.com www.roguefolk.bc.ca/concerts/ev14012220

A prolific songwriter with a direct connection to her muse, Lindsay wrote enough material for her and Mark Gordon to record and produce two americana/alt-country albums at once. Folks says she sounds like a mix of k.d.lang, Kathleen Edwards, Alison Krauss and Lucinda Williams and Linda Rondstadt. The first album *Shimmer*, was released in March 2012 to a Grade A- review form the Vancouver Province. The second, *Girl with Grit* is scheduled for a January 2014 release. Recorded at Vancouver's Nimbus recording studios in 2011/2012, Girl with Grit is an EP about not giving up. She will be touring across Canada and parts of the US in 2014 to support the release. www.lindsaymay.com www.roguefolk.bc.ca/concerts/ev14012520

In November 2011, Karrnnel Sawitsky (Fiddle), Ivonne Hernandez (Fiddle), Eric Wright (Cello) and Trent Freeman (Fiddle) got together for the first time on Vancouver Island to start rehearsing this project. After 10 days straight of writing, arranging, practicing and an absurd amount of tea, The Fretless emerged as a band. With the release of their debut album,*Waterbound*, in early 2012, which features collaborations with singers Ruth Moody and Norah Rendell, the quartet grabbed the attention of critics and fans across many genres. This recording fueled a busy summer of festivals across Canada, a month long tour of Germany in the fall, and world wide sales and radio play. The year was capped with 3 awards, bringing the album, and the band further into the public eye; Instrumental Album of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards, and at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Fretless walked away with both Ensemble of the year, and Instrumental Group of the Year. Juno award-winning singer-songwriter *Cara Luft* is that rare artist steeped in folk and traditional roots music almost from birth yet willing to alter that fabric, stretch the boundaries, not afraid to bend genres and styles. She has recently released a a stunning new collection of songs, *Darlingford*, the much anticipated third album by this Calgary-born, Winnipeg-based performer. It is her most intimately personal and fully realized recording to date, drawn from recent life experiences and informed throughout with her indomitably optimistic spirit and impeccable musical instincts.Luft has earned a solid reputation as one of Canada’s finest live performers and acoustic guitar players whose engaging, down-home style is wrapped in a delicious sense of humour. Cara’s the real deal, there’s nothing pretentious about her. And that sense of honesty, integrity, personality and spontaneity permeates and resonates throughout both her music and her live shows. *www.thefretless.com * *www.caraluft.com *
