John and Joe Saroyan
This Knoxville native began writing songs when she was ten years old, her grandfather being her biggest musical influence. She is not afraid to tell it like it is in her music. A year after releasing her debut EP in 2014, she was discovered by Scotty Schultz, drummer of Shooter Jennings. Scotty opened up his publishing company, Raindrop Music LLC, in 2015 and signed her right away, producing her next EP. Her song "Radio Static" would lead her to her second publishing deal with Johnny Garcia (lead guitar, Garth Brooks) at his company, Busy at Play Publishing. She was invited to be a Recording Academy member in 2021, and her new album, Whiskey History, is out now.
The music of Green Heron stretches across the entire folk landscape. Old-time, folk, bluegrass, country, Irish and blues music are all represented as the band brings the back porch to the stage. Featuring Betsy Heron (formerly Green) on fiddle, banjo and vocals, and Scott Heron on guitar, banjo and vocals, the duo has been sharing New England stages together since 2016. The two songwriters weave the contemporary with the traditional and deliver high energy performances.

Amber Wilds is a progressive folk duo that blends sensitive instrumentals with evocative lyricism. The group draws influence from roots and contemporary genres, crafting songs with modern-day relevance that remind us to find beauty in the wilds.
Marc Shapiro and Billy Corbett are a new-old-time duo rooted in the hills of Vermont and New Hampshire. Marc and Billy forage from a collection of newer tunes and traditional tunes and stew them in a broth of bluegrass and folk. Building on a friendship that began many years ago, Marc (banjo, guitar, vocals) and Billy (mandolin, guitar, vocals) established themselves in the New England music scene playing listening rooms, festivals, and bars.
