Accordion, lap steel guitar, singing saw, ukulele, keyboards and three part vocal harmonies combine to create their unique, other-worldly sound. Sara Ayers and Karen Cole are the other musical faeries in this all-lady band. Hazel, a taxidermy sheep, joins the Dust Bowl Fairies as mascot spirit animal and occasional go-go dancer

The Old Double E (Kingston, NY)

Realizing there was tens of dollars to be made in the fast-track “NewGrass” market, Ed Butler (guitar, singin’ and 4-string banjo) and Little Earl Lundy (just singin’), hailin’ from Kentucky and Mississippi respectively, put on their thinkin’ sombreros and started up The Old Double E. The ensemble is fattened out by John “Johnny Maggot” Adami (mandolin and guitar) and Kris “KG” Green (big bass fiddle). They is both yankees, but they sure can play! Anyhow, The Old Double E plays old-timey and new-timey tunes to drank, swear, sin, and repent to.

Yard Sale (New Paltz, NY)

The outfit, formed in 2010, woke up in the midst of the Great Recession and decided that American audiences longed to hear authentic tales of classic crisis. Yard Sale tunes are sung from the heart in 3-part harmony with a sense of pride, purpose, and dark humor. They deal with topics of country-fried angst like drinkin’ and cheatin’ and going for broke while going broke. But they also invoke the soulful beauty of R&B, the uplifting anthems of gospel, the lonesome melancholy of bluegrass, and the steamrolling syncopation of early 20th century riverboat minstrels and hobo jug bands.
