Banjo wielding prog-folk troubadour Corinna Rose will make your heart flutter and use its beat to start a hoe-down. Joined by bandmate Leah Dolgoy, sweet rings of the autoharp and banjo plucks are juxtaposed with crooked rhythms and jazz chords.

|10||The DuPont Brothers
Two brothers reunite after years of geographical separation by a fortified collaboration in music. Blending the contemplative winters of the northeast with the solitary beauty of southwestern desert, Sam and Zack DuPont are now coconspirators in a shared passion that runs deep in their family. This Burlington Vermont made duo has hit the ground running since the formation of the group in March of 2013. The brothers have recently shared the stage with Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Ben Sollee, Gin Wigmore, Chris Thomas King, Langhorne Slim, Howie Day and The Lone Bellow to name a few. Lush finger-style guitar work is complimented by elegant prose and a vocal blend that could only be matched by blood relation. The sound is Vermont made Folk-Americana.
Singer/Folktronicist E.W. Harris is a promising songwriter on the Brooklyn scene. Known for his powerful vocals, and high energy performances, Harris’s songs attempt to peer in to our modern condition, through the eyes of robots, mutants, and accidental demigods. His forthcoming record “Mimetic Desire” is due out this November. He is also a founding member of The Sky Captains of Industry.
