Seventeen year old Quentin Callewaert has only been on the music scene for a few years now, but he is creating a major buzz as one of the most gifted guitarists around. Classically trained, Quentin’s interest in fingerstyle acoustic guitar was inspired by Doc Watson, Merle Travis and Tommy Emmanuel.

This is cutting-edge acoustic folk -- mindful of the heart, mindful of ancestry, mindful of life and death and joy; with strings, vocals, and original compositions, the Gusakovs (father and son) create music that reflects their love of Appalachian old-time, classical, gypsy jazz, and their own Eastern European roots.
Originally from the Midwest, Thomasina says " I discovered my home—and my music—in New England. I strum and pick the guitar, ukulele, banjo, and mandolin--and play the piano. My music is a blend of classic and modern country and folk music with some rock and pop favorites. I enjoy Patsy Cline and Hank Williams, Kacey Musgraves and Stevie Nicks, Ed Sheeran, and Hunter Hayes.
I hope to see you sometime when I'm out playing--Live & Local!
Guitarist/songwriter Ethan Robbins began his bluegrass career at Oberlin College. A founding member of The Outhouse Troubadours, an Oberlin Bluegrass Phenomenon, he began to explore how this hard-driving fast-paced genre could be stretched. A classical violinist from age four, Ethan fell in love with the guitar when he turned fourteen and his father bought him five quintessential albums: The Band’s “Music from Big Pink,” Bob Dylan’s “Bringing it all Back Home,” John Hartford’s “Steam Powered Aereo-plane,” Hank Williams “Live at the Grand Ole Opry,” and the Grateful Dead’s “Workingman’s Dead.” Ever since, Ethan has attempted to bring those raw, rootsy sounds into his own original material.
Musician and poet, Riley Duggan writes "Oh we, insatiable. Always wanting more , Unfulfilled by the colors of sunset, We ask that sunrise settle score. Oh we, impossible. In rarest life we live, Randomness embodied, Wondering what we wish to give. Oh we, indescribable. Vagaries abound , Attempting to make sense of all, This madness we surround."
