Guitarist Ed Gerhard has fans across the globe. His concerts are regularly sold-out in locations as diverse as a major concert hall in Tokyo to a small coffee house in New England. His unique style is showcased on a number on instruments, both 6 and 12-string acoustic guitars, including the Breedlove Ed Gerhard Signature Model, and the Weisenborn Hawaiian lap steel.
He has nine studio albums to his credit, including the highly acclaimed Sunnyland and House of Guitars. His most recent release, There and Gone, is a collection of original compositions and heart felt covers. His CD, Luna, was featured by Acoustic Guitar Magazine on their list of all-time "essential albums."
When not at home in New England, Ed tours throughout North America, Europe, Japan, Korea, and China.
The Krickets are a female swamp-folk group from Florida's Gulf Coast. Produced by Ben Tanner of the Alabama Shakes, they released their debut album Spanish Moss Sirens in 2016.
Folk harmony-driven with an earthy acoustic instrumentation, the music is what Paste Magazine describes as "a truly stunning, one-of-a-kind sound."
The Krickets recently received the Folk Singer Songwriter Song of the Year at The Independent Music Awards. The group consist of Melissa Bowman, Emily Stuckey, Lauren Spring, and Katrina Kolb.
For the past 30-plus years, Johnsmith has been sharing his music here and abroad. He's a favorite at festivals, clubs, and house concerts alike. A Kerrville New Folk Winner, Johnsmith has released eight solo CDs to rave reviews.
Always busy, he tours world-wide, leads musical adventures to Ireland, and teaches songwriting.
Ginkgo is Johnsmith's latest album. Co-produced with long time friend Tom Prasada-Rao, it features multiple instruments with harmony vocals by daughter Elisi Smith-Waller and long-time freind, Dan Sebranek.
