GRAMMY Award nominated SARAH JAROSZ was described by The New York Times as "one of acoustic music's most promising young talents: a singer-songwriter and mandolin and banjo prodigy with the taste and poise to strike that rare balance of commercial and critical success."

TIM O'BRIEN'S presence – be it as a bandleader, songwriter, mentor, or instrumentalist – has been strongly felt not only in his own rich music, but in the many recordings of his songs by artists like the Dixie Chicks, Garth Brooks, Dierks Bentley, and Nickel Creek.

LULA WILES deeply rooted in traditional folk music, but equally deep is their devotion to modern song craft.
