    Eric Bettencourt

    Eric is an award-winning songwriter based in Austin Texas. With a quick wit and controlled-intensity Bettencourt brings his live shows to life using an expansive catalog of original crowd-pleasing songs. Where so many artists are content recycling the same old sounds and songs Bettencourt is one of the rare few able to forge his own. Utilizing his piano-like 6 &12 string finger-style guitar work and a natural vocal delivery, somewhere between Ray LaMontagne and Robert Plant, he never lingers long in any one sound.

    Matt Flinner Trio w/ Special Guest Steve Roy

    Since its inception in 2006, the Matt Flinner Trio has been performing its own brand of acoustic music around the country to rave reviews. Mandolinist Matt Flinner, guitarist Ross Martin and bassist Eric Thorin cover a wide variety of musical styles---all with the common ground of originality. Bluegrass, jazz and Celtic music are all present here, but not necessarily overtly or in a contrived sense. Call it Americana Music, or New Acoustic, or Chamber Grass, or just call it Great Music; whatever label you put on it, it is guaranteed to be fresh and original, and definitely something you've never quite heard before.

    Sara Watkins


    “This is a breakup album with myself...” says Sara Watkins of her third solo record, Young in All the Wrong Ways. Writing and recording these ten intensely soul-baring songs was a means for her to process and mark the last couple years, which have been transformative. “I looked around and realized that in many ways I wasn’t who or where I wanted to be. It’s been a process of letting go and leaving behind patterns and relationships and in some cases how I’ve considered myself.

    Tribute to Bob Dylan and The Band feat. The THE BAND Band


    The acclaimed group The THE BAND Band is without a doubt the most musically satisfying tribute to The Band on the scene today.
