With more than 30 million plays on Spotify, Ira Wolf has exploded onto the folk scene over the past three years. Hailing from the mountains of Montana, and making a home in Nashville, TN, Wolf’s music and writing connects with audiences on a deeply personal level through melancholy vocals and vulnerably honest lyrics. With three studio albums to share, Ira has performed on stages across the U.S., parts of the UK, Scandinavia, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand since she began touring in 2014. She spent much of 2016 promoting her sophomore album Honest on The GoWesty tour in a 1988 VW Vanagon, performing and climbing mountains across a majority of the U.S. before returning to Nashville to finish her third record. The Closest Thing To Home made its debut on September 9th, 2017, followed by another nation-wide solo tour. Ira maintains a busy schedule on the road and plans to tour the US extensively in 2018 with the release of her first vinyl record.

In a small cabin in the north woods of Wisconsin, Lee Henke works tirelessly at his craft. A midwestern singer-songwriter who is sincerely dedicated to quality and simplicity, he delivers well-constructed songs with a even blend of contour and grit. For the past 5 years, he has been touring the country with Minneapolis-based folk band, The Last Revel. He released his first solo effort entitled Schema EP in September of 2015.

Music: Hilton Park (ME)

A father, a son and a family friend who started writing and performing their music together just for fun, have become the band the Boston Examiner says has “reinvented acoustic.” Hailing from Southern Maine, Hilton Park is a 3-piece folk/Americana group made up of father/son team Bruce and Conor Hilton, and Gregg Pannier. Every song tells a story, and there’s a story behind every song. The Hilton Park sound is authentic and endearingly classic, with enough modern grit to captivate today’s audience.  Their 3 part vocal harmonies (often compared to Crosby, Stills & Nash) and their careful choice of sparse instrumentation create a soundscape so full that they have been referred to as a “three piece quintet”…

Hilton Park is finding that in an industry where individual talent often goes unnoticed, family unity and harmony can prevail — a point driven home by their 2015 New England Music Award for “Best In State: Maine,” two “Roots Act of the Year” nominations and a nomination for 2017 “Album of the Year,” and a June 2017 “Best Song” award from the Akademia Music Awards.

”They are the folks next door who just happen to be virtuoso musicians, styling traditional folk/country instruments with fresh and original tunes. But the biggest treat may be the vocal harmonies. Our audience was enthralled. Edge of our seats, truly.”
