THE KINGSTON TRIO began with Nick Reynolds, Bob Shane and Dave Guard in 1955… The three founded what turned out to be the most influential music band to emerge from the 1950s, onlyy to be outdone byy The Beatles. They rose to become the undisputed kings of folk music that exploded onto the American scene, and still exists today. Celebrating the group’s more than 60 years of entertaining audiences, all three current members, Mike Marvin, Tim Gorelangton and Don Marovich have intrinsic links to and experience with the original group.  https://officialkingstontrio.org/

CHANCE MCCOY is a Grammy Award winning Indie Folk musician from West Virginia. A virtuoso fiddler, guitarist, and banjo player, McCoy is best known as a member of GRAMMY-winning Americana powerhouse Old Crow Medicine Show, but ‘Wander Wide,’ his debut solo album, reveals a remarkable depth and versatility far beyond anything we’ve heard from him yet. Captivating in its cross of the traditional and the progressive, the record shows little regard for the conventional boundaries of genre and decade, blending old-school bluegrass melodies with modern rock and roll arrangements and rich, atmospheric production.  https://www.chancemccoy.com/

DARIN & BROOKE ALDRIDGE combine rich harmonies with impeccable musicianship to create the unmistakable sound that has made them one of the hottest young acts in acoustic music. Darin spent 6 years as a member of the acclaimed County Gentleman and is a highly sought-after multi-instrumentalist. Brooke has been lauded for having one of the most powerful voices in music of any genre is the reigning e Year. The North Carolina duo will be performing songs from ’Inner Journey’, their debut album on Rounder Records.

STEPHANIE URBINA JONES is well-known for celebrating her Hispanic heritage through her music, which can be described as Latin-rooted Americana, or “Texicana country folk-rock.” Jones’ latest studio album, ‘Tularosa’, is an inspired marriage of country classics and mariachi rhythms named for the place where it was recorded. Tularosa honors Urbina Jones’ musical icons — a string of legends from Dolly, Patsy, Willie, and Merle to Johnny and June — and the Mexican heritage that feeds her sound and soul. She will be performing on WoodSongs with her band Honky Tonk Mariachi.
