Scott Keever is an award-winning fingerstyle guitarist who combines an American roots sound with styles as far ranging as Celtic, Balkan, and jazz. He calls himself a Folk Musician, although folk music to him is all music; it is more than just one style or sound. His own music is full of life, a combination of light and shadow, meant to express the world around us.
Lovesick & Lonesome: Kerri Joy and Eli Bentley of Ginstrings get back to their roots with good old-fashioned honky tonk and country music. Simple, toe-tapping music for sipping sweet tea on the worn-out front-porch swing or watching the lines flash by on the four-lane.
SisterTree renders radiant, expansive harmonies for strings and voices, and kicks it back with old favorites and downright far-fetched selections grounded in Celtic and Americana Traditions. Roving over the wild and storied landscapes of life, they envibe with the rhythms of sugarplums dropped in the forest.
