BROKEN BANJO Broken Banjo could be described as a folk/ Americana vocal group, but this doesn’t begin to describe the range of what this exciting trio delivers. In the span of a few songs, they can move from a soulful ballad to a jazz standard to classic blues. With Larry Mason on rhythm guitar, Kevin Johnson on lead guitar, and Deirdre Fairfax on lead vocals, guitar, harp, and penny whistle, these three creatively collaborate from their own perspectives and strengths to put a Broken Banjo stamp on each song. Their name was adopted from Deirdre’s father’s music and coffee house in a small town in Millington, Tennessee, in the mid sixties. It seemed like a perfect namesake for the band that loves to share songs spanning across genres and time.

BIRCH PEREIRA & THE GIN JOINTS
Born out of a love of the early years of swing, country, and rock ‘n ‘roll, Birch Pereira & The Gin Joints is a band whose sound transports you to the time of speakeasies, honky-tonks, and roadhouses. With upright bassist and vocalist Birch Pereira at its center, the band’s debut album Dream Man was released independently and received the Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award for Northwest Recording of the Year in 2016. Fans, critics, and deejays have delighted in Birch Pereira’s “old soul” tenor voice, the group’s clean stripped-down arrangements of musical gems from the past, and Pereira’s ever-growing repertoire of original, yet period-evoking, material.

Marc Broussard is an artist with a unique gift of channeling the spirits of classic R&B, rock, and soul into contemporary terms. This gift has been a matter of common knowledge since 2002, when Broussard released his debut album, Momentary Setback, which he recorded and released independently at age 20. It was no secret before then, going back to those lucky witnesses who heard him belt “Johnny B. Goode” onstage at age 5 while sitting in with his father’s band. Throughout his life, Broussard has been tapped as a talent to watch. Marc’s song, “Home,” was successful on radio and catapulted him onto the national touring stage. The timeless, soulful nature of Marc’s vocal lends well to film and TV, and his music has been placed in many TV shows and movies. Marc recently released a followup to his S.O.S. album. It is another soul cover album appropriately titled S.O.S. 2. He will be donating fifty percent of the profits to City of Refuge. For more info about City of Refuge, please visit www.cityofrefugeatl.org. Marc is currently working on an original record and is hoping to release it this year.

When You Want the Job Done Right and You Want it Done Quickly, Come to the Two Places Where You Can Find EVERYTHING You Need. “Challenging what folk music is capable of,” says Seattle Weekly, “Talbot’s powerful, uplifting voice harnesses a country twang complemented by lush acoustic finger-picking and a violin that feels like it was birthed next to a babbling brook in the mountains.” Talbot stands on the shoulders of generations of folk musicians and Americana singer-songwriters before him. His approach to music feels like that of someone who treats it as a craft handed down and honed, like the tilling of soil or the carving of wood.

Whitney Mongé learned to capture the power of authenticity while honing her skills as a street performer. Each part of her performance, from the passion of her powerful, smoky voice to the intensity of a whispered lyric, draws listeners into an embrace within each truthful moment of song. Whitney was raised with rhythm and blues in her blood, but while growing up in the Pacific Northwest, her music was heavily influenced by the rock scene of the 90’s coining her own genre, alternative soul.

SEANOTES BIG BAND
The current incarnation of the SeaNotes Big Band is still led by Bruce Seltveit and consists of the famous SeaNotes five-sax front line, three trombones, and three trumpets. The rhythm section consists of piano, bass, and drums. The fourteen members of the band and over thirty eager subs hail from South Whidbey Island to Bellingham. Dedicated to the swing era music of the 30s, 40s, and 50s, the SeaNotes have enjoyed the resurgence of big band music. The bands repertoire includes some of today’s contemporary swing arrangements, waltzes, tangos, and other popular music styles.
