CATHERINE BRITT is an award winning Australian singer/songwriter. Raised in Gunnedah, Australia, Catherine made the move to the home of country music at just 17 years old after recording her debut album, which garnered the attention of Elton John and RCA Records. The critical acclaim for her albums and reputation as a performer has seen Catherine tour and perform with some of the biggest names in music, including Sir Elton John, Don McLean, Keith Urban, Dolly Parton, and more. Her recent album, ‘Catherine Britt & The Cold Cold Hearts’, is an album that rattles and rolls with life, energy and honest, autobiographical songwriting. http://www.catherinebritt.com
LOCKWOOD BARR is a Tiburon, Californiasongwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Her successes include CMA Emerging Artist, an Independent Country Music Association Award as banjo player for the Nashvegas Ramblers, and a 2016 Music Row Magazine Discovery Award for her song “Forgotten How to Cry.”  With a mother who performed with John Hartford and the Dillards, a dad who taught her banjo she can’t remember a time she wasn’t around music.

CHERISH THE LADIES are the long-running, Grammy-nominated, Irish-American super group that formed in New York City in 1985 to celebrate the rise of women in what had been a male-dominated Irish music scene. The group has since toured the world, played the White House and the Olympics, recorded 17 outstanding albums including a live recording, “An Irish Homecoming,” which was simultaneously videotaped for a Public Television Special that aired across America and won an Emmy. Under the leadership of All-Ireland flute and whistle champion Joanie Madden, named by The Irish Voice Newspaper as one of the Top 25 most influential Irish Americans of the past quarter century, these ladies create an evening that includes a spectacular blend of virtuoso instrumental talents, beautiful vocals, captivating arrangements, and stunning step dancing  http://www.cherishtheladies.com

He still tours nationally in the 1980s with Colorado bluegrass band Hot Rize. Kathy Mattea, Nickel Creek and Garth Brooks covered his songs. Tim lands with two feet squarely back in bluegrass on the band’s new self titled debut album. https://timobrien.net
