About the bands

Louder Than Milk

Louder Than Milk‘s catchy, heartfelt music spans Americana, honky tonk, country, blues and rock. Most of the band’s songs are written by Andy Crowe, Jay Paget and Jeff Todd, who frequently combine for tight three-part harmonies. A sprinkling of original instrumentals, including tunes penned by fiddler Kim Patch, and a few choice covers round out the band’s grooving kaleidoscopic repertoire. The band was born in the Northeast and travels through American back roads. If they’re not back by morning, they must’ve got lost in the night.

The Rozzicats

The Rozzicats play an eclectic mix of older pop, Americana, country classics and Andy Hollinger originals, interspersed with a bit of bluegrass and some Kim-Patch-penned, fiddle-driven instrumentals. The band features Jenn Goldson performing songs by leading female American songwriters, including Nancy Griffith, Kate Wolf, Rhiannon Giddens and Celia Woodsmith.

Creek River 3

Creek River 3 plays a mix of Americana, bluegrass, blues, old-time with some originals, featuring singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kara Kulpa.

Andrew Innes and the Reluctant Ramblers

Andrew Innes and the Reluctant Ramblers plays a mixture of original music and trad country, Americana, early jazz and blues, waltzes and English country dance tunes. Guitar, fiddle, pedal steel and upright bass, and we even throw some musical saw into the mix.

Bookmatch Duo

Bookmatch Duo plays a range of original, traditional and contemporary instrumental music, including old-time, blues, ragtime, bluegrass, waltzes, contra dance tunes, and English country dance tunes.

Creek River String Band

Creek River String Band is a five-piece acoustic band that delivers an energetic and eclectic mix of bluegrass, country, folk, old-time, Tex-Mex, Celtic, blues and rock. Or as we like to say, fresh-baked roots music. Sign up to hear about upcoming Creek River String Band shows. Videos.
