Featuring performances by:


Frank Fairfield

Frank Fairfield is a young chronicler of American music. Switching from song to song between  banjo, guitar and his grandfather’s fiddle, Frank channels the stories told by figures long since passed. Since the Spring of 2008, Fairfield has been signed to the New York folk label Tompkins Square, released a 7″ and been on a national tour in support of the Fleet Foxes.


Joe Wack & Friends

Joe Wack was first enthralled by old time music as an art student in West Virginia University in the early ’70’s.  From that time he has maintained the dual vocations of musician and artist. As a banjo player, he was an original founder of the still-active WV stringband Stewed Mulligan. Joe will be joined by his frequent musical companions Steve Lewis and Laura Osborn. Steve is a regular performer at dances and festivals throughout southern California, and is also a member of the dance band The Screaming Earwigs. Laura Osborn has been a lifelong musician, performing and teaching flute in the Los Angeles area for almost twenty years, and finds time whenever possible to play old-time music on guitar, banjo, and banjo-uke.


Triple Chicken Foot

Triple Chicken Foot is a Los Angeles based Old Time band that have played together for more than five years, focusing on and honing their skills playing Old Time music rooted in the great Americana tradition.  The band finds their voice through their repertoire of tunes and songs, be it gospel songs, archaic banjo tunes, or crooked fiddle music.  In recent years they have been a powerful new dance band on the Square Dance & Contra scene, and have recently finished recording their second full length CD, entitled Tar River.
