About the Bands:

Kelly Hunt- “Kelly Hunt is a singer-songwriter of Americana/Roots music. Born and raised in Memphis, TN, she now calls Kansas City home. Kelly’s primary instrument is her voice, which rings out with confidence and clarity of someone who has been singing all her life. Accompanied by her 1920s tenor banjo, Kelly’s songs meld traditions of folk, blues, classic country, and old-time music for a sound that is all her own. Her songwriting springs from a place of rich imagery and bespeaks a genuine love of storytelling. Kelly is currently recording her first album (featuring multi-instrumentalist Stas’ Heaney), which she hopes to make available by early winter 2017.” Information taken from Artist’s Facebook page -click here to follow Kelly Hunt-

Stas’ Heaney is a classically-trained percussionist, pianist, and violinist. But a 19th c. fiddle is his instrument of choice when playing with Kelly. His deft instrumentals lend a vibrance and richness to Kelly’s songs, weaving between banjo and vocals with graceful precision.

The Lark and the Loon- “The Lark and the Loon are a husband and wife songwriting duo. Roots music by simple definition their writing and song choices traverse the Americana idea in what they call an exploration of the etymology of American music.. Sea shanties, Irish dance tunes, Delta and Piedmont blues, jazz, and country all weave together under the calm direction of their showmanship and love of wordplay. Their debut album “Songbirds and Fog” was the highest charted self-released album on the Folk DJ charts the month of its release and has been gaining steady fanfare from the listeners reached by this 74 minute 19 track catalog of an album. Tailored to their environment they deliver performances full of humor, insight, and history. Having several coast-to-coast tours under their belt the two enjoy the road. In 2014 they moved to a semi-remote location in the Ozark mountains to better position themselves for travelling the country. When at home they write, work the rocky soil, and hike the natural beauty of the area soaking in the peace and quiet before their next venture.” Information taken from Artist’s Facebook page -click here to follow The Lark and the Loon-
