    Lo Wolf writes and performs from her Asheville, NC home. Her latest recording, Country Pop Hit, has been called "equal parts timeless and modern" and she infuses poetry, praise, and grit into her original compositions. She is a classically trained harpist gone folk singer, so yankee she's southern, and very happy to be here.

    Lucas Wolf is a South Dakota born, Arizona raised singer songwriter currently touring the western region of the United States. He has supported bands such as Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Leftover Salmon, Lion Vibes, Gipsy Moon, Mountain Standard Time and more. He writes heartfelt, thoughtful lyrics and his songs are delivered with passion and sincerity each and every time. Once upon a time he lived as a wandering, hitch-hiking busker playing his music from town to town, never knowing where he would end up next.  As time went on, life on a never-ending road lost its allure and he decided to stay put a while and pour himself fully into his music.  He is currently working on his second full length record out of Boulder Colorado.

    At its core, The Moon and You is a charismatic husband-and-wife team. Melissa Hyman plays cello, Ryan Furstenberg plays guitar and banjo, and both sing in “voices that sound like they were made for one another” (Bill DeYoung, Connect Savannah). But whatever you might assume based on their gorgeous vocal blend and heartfelt lyrics, this ain’t your basic folk duo. With a rotating cast of talented friends to add unexpected instrumentation to their lineup, The Moon and You never plays the same show twice. This ever-evolving, expandable and collapsible model leaves the band constantly reinventing itself in ways both surprising and satisfying.

    “Mother Marrow started out as Charity Cimarron's solo project, Rusalka, and has matured into a 4-piece indie folk expression. Devin Crow joined the picture in 2017, and has been full time band partner and banjo player extraordinaire ever since. Emmalee Hunnicutt (of Mountain Bitters) plays expressive, emotional cello, and Matt Shepard (Coconut Cake) has recently joined on drums. 
     Mother Marrow is elemental, powerful, modern folk music with haunting vocal harmonies, folk-style finger picking on guitar and banjo, swooping cello, and driving drums, with lyrics that can call up tears, or send shivers down your spine. 
    The songs of Mother Marrow are written from Charity's deep love of the natural world, striving towards beauty and truth, and an understanding of the painful, and magical process of transformation.”

    Mackenzie Page is an indie folk singer-songwriter from Denver, Colorado. She serenades with a unique style of sultry jazz-folk, taking the listener on a dream-like journey and evoking a sound of an older time. Accompanied by guitar, tenor banjo and drums, her self-reflective songwriting draws from a deep reverence for nature, poetry and 30’s jazz. Page was a founding member of the former Colorado band Gipsy Moon and has since been touring under her own name; gearing up to release her full-length debut album Sweet Nostalgia in May of 2020.

Well worth it!

Wonderful content.

Awesome!

A beautiful blend of creativity and spirituality. At first i thought this was just just going to be another cheezy show about mindfulness but after listening to the first episode i discovered that it was a rare gem!
