Della Mae

A Nashville-based, all-female string band, has a completely original style – sensitive yet assertive, intense yet playful, steeped in tradition yet undeniably current. Versatile instrumentalists and vocalists, they draw from a bottomless well of roots influences to create vibrant original music that conveys an expansive musical vision. With timeless lyrical truth-telling and an unmistakably contemporary sensibility, they stand alongside such roots-conscious acts as the Avett Brothers, Punch Brothers, the Lumineers, and Hurray for the Riff Raff.

Della Mae were IBMA’s Emerging Artists of the Year in 2013, GRAMMY Nominees in 2014 for their debut album on Rounder Records, named among Rolling Stone’s “10 bands to watch for in 2015,” and have since traveled with the US State Department to over 18 countries spreading peace and understanding through music.

Their mission as a band is to showcase top female musicians and to improve opportunities for women and girls through advocacy, mentorship, programming, and performance.

Dori Freeman
Dori Freeman first broke out in 2016, with a stunning debut produced by Teddy Thompson and a sparkling voice that seemed to come from out of nowhere. Her songs were brittle, cracked, infused with heartbreak and seeming to speak for women everywhere, channeling Appalachian women in a way that harkened back to Loretta Lynn. NPR spoke of her “bruised sort of romanticism” and Noisey referenced her “heart-wrenching moments.” Freeman had written her first album on the heels of a failed relationship, a suddenly-single mother in a small town. There was a bitter taste in her songwriting that reflected the fiercely independent streak Appalachian women are known for and her own lack of patience for bullshit. Three years later, she’s now happily married (to drummer Nick Falk), and her new album, Every Single Star, to be released September 27, 2019 on Blue Hens Music (her second album on her own label after 2017’s Letters Never Read), features a very different perspective. She’s writing songs now for her new love, and for her daughter, as beholden as ever to the traditions that first inspired her as a young girl growing up in Galax, Virginia, but full of the same incisive eye for the human condition that’s always been her hallmark.

“The purity of Dori Freeman’s voice and the directness of her songwriting reflect not only her Appalachian hometown — Galax, Va. — but also a determined classicism, a rejection of the ways modern country punches itself up for radio and arenas.” – Jon Pareles, The New York Times

Dempsey – At this time we do NOT believe the Dempsey sisters are available to join Della Mae in concert on October 30, 2020.
The Dempsey Sisters, from Smithfield, VA, bring a youthful twist to music both old & new. Their three-part sibling harmony along with their passion for the artistry of music delivers a unique blend.

“Most musicians learn from books, but sometimes they’re mechanical and the music escapes their soul,” he said. “They’ve listened and absorbed the music, so when it comes out of their mouths it’s like a new genre of the song.
-Virginia Mountain Boys and state bluegrass/traditional music legend Bill Jenkins, who is in the  Virginia Music Hall of Fame.

The Way Down Wanderers

Voted #1 of 10 New Artists You Need To Know - Rolling Stone Country Winter 2019

The Way Down Wanderers are from the very heartland of America – central Illinois, Peoria, to be exact which is reflected in their distinctive sound, which draws on elements of bluegrass, but also touches on classic rock influences including the multi-part harmonies of the Beach Boys and The Band’s hybrid soul, as well as the roots qualities of The Avett Brothers and Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, with surprising elements of jazz, classical music and even hip-hop.

The Way Down Wanderers are often referred to by fans as one of the hardest-working, hardest-touring bands on the circuit today, the 5-piece Illinois-based act not only proves that classification with their jam-packed tour schedule but also on stage every night, with youthful exuberance and a lively stage show, as reliable as it is infectious. High energy percussion, mandolin, guitar, bass, banjo, and fiddle weave seamlessly together to create an experience for fans that has sold out shows across the UK and the United States, filling the front rows with fans not just singing along to one tune, but singing along to all of them.

“Somewhere on the spectrum between Old Crow Medicine Show and Mumford and Sons lies the spirited bluegrass based artistry of The Way Down Wanderers. It is joyful, daring and occasionally sublime.” – Associated Press

The Good Morning Nags

The Good Morning Nags is an NYC-based roots-country band that finds inspiration in traditional American folk music as well as more contemporary styles.

“Six-piece NYC based ensemble The Good Morning Nags is currently in the middle of making a name for themselves… recipe for musical success”
— Matheson’s Entertainment Blog

“The Good Morning Nags demonstrate superb musicianship and songwriting leaving no wonder of how they became a staple of the New York folk scene.”
— Indie Spoonful
