Since her discovery in 2006 by folk icon Judy Collins, Amy Speace has been heralded as one of the leading voices of the new generation of American folk singers. A classically trained actress, Amy was a regular with The National Shakespeare Company in New York City. Eventually she began performing in Greenwich Village coffeehouses and found her true calling.
In 2009 Amy became a full-time performer and songwriter. Her songs celebrate the human condition and the small victories that mark our everyday lives.
Amy has been featured on public radio's All Things Considered and Marketplace and has performed multiple times on Mountain Stage. She has 7 critically acclaimed studio albums, including Applewood Road, released in 2016 on Thirty Tigers.
A native of Hattiesburg, Mississippi Webb Wilder moved to Austin after high school and started cranking out offbeat songs while giving offbeat performances with his offbeat band, The Beatnecks.
Music critics have always warmed up to the Webb Wilder experience. The AP described Webb's music and stage performance as "a glorious amalgamation of grunge chords, killer grooves, theatrics, a healthy sense of humor, and great melodies."
Webb has a dozen studio albums to his credit as well as multiple credits as an actor, beginning with Web Wilder Private Eye in The Saucer's Reign.
Edie Carey was born in Burlington, Vermont and raised in the Boston suburbs. She attended Barnard College in New York City where she gravitated to Greenwich Village. Edie was captivated by the folk music scene and soon began performing her original songs.
Since then she has performed at festivals and clubs throughout North America and Europe. She has shared the stage with Lyle Lovett, Emmlou Harris, Shawn Mullins, and Brandi Carlile. Edie has multiple studio albums to her credit, including her latest, Paper Rings: 8 Love Stories.
Tina and Her Pony met in Asheville, N.C. Tina Collins (tenor banjo, tenor ukulele, guitar, vocals) and Quetzal Jordan (cello, guitar, vocals) spent two years holed up in the high desert mountain town of Taos, New Mexico, making music and friends. They released their full length, self-titled debut album in March 2012. Collins and Jordan are both classically trained musicians who first toured together as part of Over Under Yonder.
Tina and Her Pony’s songwriting incorporates complexities in harmony and arrangement in the American folk tradition. Their unique sound draws inspiration from artists such as Nickel Creek, Sarah Jarosz, Gillian Welch and Crooked Still. The duo has 3 studio albums including 2017’s critically acclaimed Champion.
