Ellis Paul is one of the leading voices in American songwriting and one of the top songwriters to emerge out of the fertile Boston folk scene. He helped create a movement that revitalized the national acoustic circuit with an urban, literate, folk rock style that helped renew interest in the genre in the 90's. "I need to keep feeling refreshed.
Always candid about his career, he said, "I've been down the Ellis Paul rabbit-hole, you know, and now I'm looking around and trying to learn new things, experience other people's music and stories. I have no idea where I'm headed, but I think it'll make me a broader artist."
Buddy Mondlock writes songs. He does it so well that some great songwriters have recorded his songs on their own albums. Guy Clark, Nanci Grifﬁth, and Janis Ian, to name just a few. You might have heard his song “The Kid” (recorded by David Wilcox, Peter, Paul and Mary and Cry, Cry, Cry) and maybe even sung it yourself around a campfire.
Along with his concerts Buddy teaches songwriting workshops as well. In 2012 he was on staff at the Swannanoa Gathering at Warren Wilson college in North Carolina teaching two intensive courses over a weeks time, and in 2013 Buddy returned once again to the Kerrville Folk Festival to perform and teach.
Minnesota native Tom Feldmann taught himself to play guitar at age 17 after hearing "The Country Blues of John Lee Hooker" and soon developed the rare talent of being able to accurately transcribe the amazing playing of legendary bluesmen Charley Patton, Son House, Robert Johnson, Fred McDowell, Blind Willie Johnson, Mississippi John Hurt and many others.
Tom has since released 13 CD's which received rave reviews. Tom Feldmann is also an internationally known instructor with a sizable catalog of DVD's produced by Stefan Grossman's Guitar Workshop and distributed worldwide by Mel Bay.
