  • Singer/Songwriter

Eliza Gilkyson is a 2-time Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and activist who has become one of the most respected musicians in Folk, Roots and  Americana circles. She has appeared on NPR, Austin City Limits,  Mountain Stage, etown, Sirius/XM, Air America Radio and has toured  worldwide as a solo artist and in support of Richard Thompson, Patty Griffin, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Dan Fogelberg.

Her songs have been covered by Joan Baez, Bob Geldof, Tom Rush and Rosanne Cash and have appeared in films, PBS specials and on prime-time TV. She has been inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame and recognized with countless Austin Music and Folk Alliance awards. Eliza’s music has always offered a vivid reflection of the times we live in, full of joys and sorrows, each song a window into a life of struggle and triumph in a world she feels is “poised on the edge of moral, economic and environmental bankruptcy.”

Her latest release on Red House Records, The Nocturne Diaries, produced by her son Cisco Ryder, is a journey through the dark night of the soul that ends at the light of dawn with a sense of gratitude and a stubborn little ray of hope.

Eliza is an active member of the Austin music and political community, including the environmental organization Save Our Springs, and she is a co-founder of 5604 Manor,  an Austin-based resource center that promotes political activism and  community involvement around issues of race, patriarchy and global injustice.

Jim Henry

  • Folk
  • Singer/Songwriter

It’s hard to know where to start when describing Jim Henry. He does a lot of things and he does them well.

As a sideman, on a variety of electric or acoustic guitars, or on mandolin or dobro, Jim can render emotional sensitivity in one moment then tear into a rock or country solo with such fire it’s hard to catch your breath. He is a master of adding whatever is needed at any musical moment.

At center stage, whether as a solo artist or leading a band, Jim delivers his finely crafted original songs with a smooth, rich baritone voice and engaging story telling and humor.

​He has produced, recorded, played and traveled the world with Mary Chapin Carpenter, Paula Cole, Shawn Colvin, Alison Krauss, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Los Lobos, Alseep at the Wheel, Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, The Weepies, Deb Talan, Eliza Gilkyson, Tracy Grammer, Susan Werner, The Boxcar Lilies…the list goes on and on.

At home on a festival stage and the intimate setting of a house concert, live and in the studio, playing acoustic or electric, solo or with a band supporting another musicians, the shear versatility of this skillful musician can be hard to fully appreciate…until you hear him play.

Tracy Grammer

  • Folk
  • Singer/Songwriter

Called  “a musician and singer of dazzling versatility” (No Depression), Tracy Grammer is among contemporary folk music’s most beloved artists. Renowned for her pure voice, deft guitar and violin work, and incantatory storytelling, Grammer has recorded and performed with Joan Baez and Mary Chapin Carpenter, headlined several of the nation’s top folk festivals, including Philadelphia Folk Festival and Falcon Ridge, and enjoyed 12 consecutive years as one of folk radio’s 50 top-played artists, both solo and with the late Dave Carter.

Grammer is currently on tour celebrating her highly-anticipated eleventh release, LOW TIDE, which is the first of her albums to showcase her original songs. Album opener “Hole” was the #1 most-played song on the folk radio charts in February 2018, and LOW TIDE was in the top 5 for its first two months of airplay.
