Tin + Bone features the truly remarkable talents of 12 year old multi-instrumentalist and champion banjo player Nora Brown, harmonica master Trip Henderson, blue ribbon fiddler Stephanie Coleman and guitar wizard Eli Hetko. Nora who burst onto the scene this year is being mentored by many of her favorite old time musicians including John Cohen, Ry Cooder, Anna Roberts-Gevalt, Mark Schatz, KC Groves and Mark Simos. Most recently she traveled to Eastern Kentucky to study at the feet of Lee Sexton, 89 year old master banjo player and former coal miner. The group plays breakdowns and ballads with a focus on old time music of the rural south and the community it creates.
SPENCER & RAINS (9PM)
Together, Spencer & Rains have performed and taught nationally and internationally, preserving and building upon the traditions of their region. The husband and wife duo are known for their twin fiddle harmony, which is a product of the influence of midwestern Scandinavian fiddlers Tricia heard as a child. At the same time, Howard’s distinct repertoire reintroduces listeners to the pre-contest styles of Texas fiddling. That same sense of harmony is in their vocals, as well, which they pull from all manner of American folk music. Both multi-instrumentalists, they are steeped in tradition and are dedicated to the preservation, performance, and teaching of old time music.

Brooklyn-based band with Sarah Gibson on banjo, A'yen Tran on guitar, Libby Weitnauer on fiddle, and Erin Lobb on bass. Ginny's Kitchen is the place where Erin hung out with her granny Ginny in Kentucky and learned her good manners.
