All Good Presents – Nefesh Mountain

Since their arrival on the scene in 2015, Nefesh Mountain has been hailed as one of todays formative boundary pushing Bluegrass/Americana bands. They are among the first to truly give voice and openly represent Jewish American culture, tradition, values and spirituality in the world of American roots music. In a testament to the unbridled imagination and extraordinary grace of their musicianship, each track on Songs for the Sparrows ineffably evokes the sensation of roaming through the unknown. True to the albums spirit of loving inclusivity, Lindberg and Zasloff, have created an elegantly wayward sound by melding elements of everything from Americana and Appalachian bluegrass to Celtic folk and Eastern European music. Not only a reflection of their vast musical knowledge, that open-hearted embracing of so many eclectic genres also speaks to the joyful curiosity that animates every aspect of their artistry.

Kentucky Avenue w/ Wicked Sycamore: Ballad of the Past Album Show

Carving a place in the modern Americana scene, Washington DC-based Kentucky Avenue features at its core the rich and rootsy blend of Stella Schindler’s powerfully poetic vocals and the melodic guitar musings of Dave Ries. When their voices come together, the timeless, razor-sharp harmonies provide a poignant backdrop to their lyrics that evoke the idea behind Leonard Cohen’s famous line “there’s a crack in everything–that’s how the light gets in.” Kentucky Avenue’s second record Ballad of the Past harkens back to the classic country rock music of 1970s Laurel Canyon, infusing it with their modern Americana spirit. With a nod to Emmylou and Gram, this album presents stories of love and longing, loss and loneliness–but not without a notion that enough is enough or miracles are possible. En route to California, their songs travel through the haunted hills of the South, the misty mountains of Pennsylvania and Virginia, and a stop in Asbury Park with a Springsteen cover.

Lizzie No w/ evil

With the release of her debut album, Hard Won, in March 2017, singer-songwriter, harpist, and guitarist Lizzie No established herself as one of the most exciting new voices in contemporary folk music. Billboard Magazine called the album simultaneously understated and fervent. She followed up the album with the release of Sundown, a benefit track for Black Lives Matter. Building on the songwriting prowess displayed in her critically acclaimed debut album, Lizzie No is unsparing in the stories she tells on her new album Vanity, released August 2, 2019. The nine songs on Vanity are epic tales of ego, featuring narrative shifts within vividly crafted characters. No embodies characters ranging from a handsome egoist in Narcissus (which Rolling Stone called a crisp alt-rock gem) to a broke songwriter waiting for her big break in Pity Party, to a bitter and isolated rocker on Loyalty who rants that the crowd has left him behind.

Dan Bern w/ Brandon Costello

Dan Bern may be best-known for his classics like Jerusalem,Marilyn,Tiger Woods and God Said No. He has released 25 albums and EPs, and played thousands of shows across North America and Europe. He is a captivating live performer with a loyal, multi-generational following.

Smithsonian Folkways & PSW Present: Lula Wiles w/Liv Greene

Lula Wiles is a band consisting of Eleanor Buckland, Mali Obomsawin, and Isa Burke. In Paste Magazine?s words, they?re provocateurs of the best kind, rabble-rousers with the purest intentions. Of the band?s sophomore album, What Will We Do, Obomsawin says, we wanted to make an album that reflected, in a current way, what we are all staying up late thinking about and talking about over drinks at the dinner table, says Obomsawin. What is everyone worried about, confiding in their friends about, losing sleep about? In November 2019 the band followed up What Will We Do with It?s Cool, a lighthearted duo of songs in which the band explores the complexities of dating in the digital age, training its incisive, trenchant wit on the new ways we experience age-old feelings of disappointment, desire, and heartache. With It?s Cool, Lula Wiles further established themselves as Americana?s wildcard, unafraid of exploring knotty topics and turning convention on its head.

Human Country Jukebox, created by singer-songwriter, guitar-picker Jack Gregori, has its roots in rabble-rousing outlaw country bands from the good old days in the deep South. HCJ claims no hometown – “No town can hold me,” Jack insists with a slight wink – but you’ll swear this band comes straight outta North Texas.

Front man Jack Gregori grew up singing and playing whatever musical instruments were around him. “I got hooked when I was a kid in the 80’s and watched The Blues Brothers movie. That opened it up for me and I haven’t stopped since.” Eventually, Jack started performing at open mic nights. By 2010, he had picked up some local musicians, beginning the evolution into the Human Country Jukebox band. Since then, the band has performed well over a hundred times, mainly in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area.

The name Human Country Jukebox actually refers to Jack himself. He’s memorized more than 200 country-western hits. Shout out the name of any song at one of their shows, and you’ll discover that HCJ can wing anything.

Taking requests and interacting with the audience is a signature of every HCJ performance. Audiences can expect a different show every time, filled with creative improvisations and reinterpretations of classic country tunes. Just don’t yell out “Sweet Home Alabama.”
