About the artists…

Kelly Hunt

“…is a singer-songwriter of Americana/Roots music—born and raised in Memphis, TN but now based out of Kansas City, MO. Kelly’s primary instrument is her voice, which rings out with confidence and clarity of one who has been singing all her life. Accompanied by her 1920s tenor banjo (“Ira”) and guitar (“Vernon”), Kelly’s songs meld traditions of folk, blues, classic country…….accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Staś Heaney.

Staś is a classically-trained percussionist, pianist, and violinist. He brings elements of all these to the table when accompanying Kelly, but his instrument of choice is a 19th c. violin. Staś’ deft arrangements lend vibrance and depth to Kelly’s songs, weaving between banjo and vocals with evocative grace.” – information and photo borrowed from artists’ website – click for more

W.T. Newton

“From the whiskey-soaked ranks of County Graves comes W.T. Newton’s grievous Americana tunes of hometowns and heartbreak. After the disbandment of County Graves, W.T. has set out on a far less rowdy path than the full band, but still striking as many story telling chords as he can muster. Pour yourself a hard drink, and gather round.” – information and photo borrowed from artists’ Facebook page – click for more

Duane Mark

“…

spent most of his formidable years, growing up in the deserts outside of Bakersfield, CA. Desolation is the first thing that comes to mind, when one thinks on the Mojave Desert. What does one do when growing up in such circumstances? They find a passion to immerse them self in. For Duane Mark, that passion was music.

The son of a carpenter, Duane Mark was born in Phoenix, AZ to a hard working young family, who had a love for music. At the age of 13, he began playing the gospel and bluegrass music that surrounded the small mining towns he would spend his junior high and high school years…” – information and photo borrowed from artists’ Facebook page – click for more
