Eliza Gilkyson is a politically minded, poetically gifted singer-songwriter who is one of the
most respected musicians in roots, folk and Americana music circles.  The
Grammy-nominated artist has been inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame and
recognized with countless Austin Music and Folk Alliance awards.  Her CD
The Nocturne
Diaries
will be released March 18, 2014.

Eliza's thoughts on "
The Nocturne Diaries":
"'
The Nocturne Diaries' is a collection of songs that came to me in the middle of the night, as
well as a few covers that seemed to fit this concept. I have learned over the years to pay
attention to the muses whenever they choose to make their move, even if it means getting up
in the night and forgoing a good sleep. Suffice it to say, this has not been a very sleep-filled
year, though the muses did honor me with a few songs for my efforts.

The songs that come in the night are very different than the daylight songs. Usually the big
themes crop up in the dark, thoughts of mortality, the state of the world, the plight of
mankind, one's failures, losses and fears- the things we are too distracted to notice during the
day. But the backdrop of shadows also proves to highlight the value of the warm and loving
people who share your life with you, who care about the world, nature and humanity, who
keep the fires of hope, humor and hearth burning bright in this time, who make your life
meaningful and worthy of your highest intentions.'

  • “Austin trio Hot Club Of Cowtown sounds like it’s spent the last 40 years in tiny rural
    clubs. The group’s old-fashioned mixture of Western swing and hot jazz leaves all the
    irony at home, and what’s left is a refreshingly sweet-natured, accomplished, old-school
    treat…” ~ The Onion

  • “Unfussy and unpretentious, their blend of down-home melodies and exuberant
    improvisation harks back to a lost era of so-called western swing. When they plunge
    into Orange Blossom Special your thoughts turn not so much to runaway trains as to a
    B-52 tearing up a runway.”  ~ The Times (London)
Austin-based Hot Club of Cowtown have grown to be the most globe-trotting, hardest-swinging
Western swing trio on the planet. The first American band to tour Azerbaijan, they have opened
stadiums for such artists as Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson. Hot Club of Cowtown have created an
international cult following for their brand of western swing… a sonic personification of joy and
unique sound inspired by their namesakes: “Hot Club” from the hot jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt
and violinist Stephane Grappelli’s Hot Club of France, and “Cowtown” from the Western swing
influence of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys.

Formed in the summer of 2009, Run Boy Run has emerged as "a prevalent force in the desert music
scene." After winning the coveted
Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest in 2011, Run Boy Run
has been busy recording a self-titled EP, performing throughout the Southwest, and building a
growing catalog of traditional, original, and familiar material.

The unique sound of Run Boy Run is rooted in the traditional music of the Appalachian South. Bands
like
Nickel Creek and Crooked Still have paved the way for the music of Run Boy Run: dynamic,
orchestral, and overflowing with beauty. Run Boy Run exists in the tension between tradition and
frontier. Three strong female voices weave a spectacular tapestry of sound. Award-winning fiddle cuts
a path for a tightly formed rhythmic front. Every arrangement is—at its core—beautiful.

Brother and sister, Matt (fiddle, guitar) and Grace Rolland (cello, vocals), have fiddle music running

through their blood. Raised with bow and rosin on every bedside table, Run Boy Run was a natural fit. Sisters, Bekah (fiddle, vocals, guitar) and Jen
Sandoval (mandolin, vocals), grew up deeply ingrained in the Bluegrass festivals of Arizona, so they too found a home in Run Boy Run. Jesse Allen
(bass) was brought up on opera and western swing, and grew to love the natural fusion inherent in American music.

The whole truly exceeds the sum of the parts as touches of classical, jazz, and folk express themselves through the old-time core of Run Boy Run's
unique sound.

Instrumentation:
  • Matt Rolland - Guitar, Fiddle
  • Bekah Sandoval - Vocals, Guitar, Fiddle
  • Grace Rolland - Vocals, Cello
  • Jesse Allen - Bass

After landing on Nashville's Lower Broadway in the 90's, Chuck Mead co-founded famed Alternative
Country quintet
BR549. The band's seven albums, three GRAMMY nominations and CMA Award for
Best Overseas Touring Act would build an indelible bridge between authentic American Roots music
and millions of fans worldwide.

With the band on hiatus, in 2006 Mead took on the role of Music Director for Million Dollar Quartet,
a show which became a Broadway smash and has had extremely successful runs in Seattle, London,
Chicago and an upcoming residency at Harrah¹s in Las Vegas.   By 2009, his work as a solo artist was
at the forefront of his career and culminated with the release of critically acclaimed solo debut,
Journeyman's Wager.

Back At The Quonset Hut was recorded at Nashville's legendary Quonset Hut Studio where Patsy
Cline, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Roger Miller, Loretta Lynn, Johnny Cash and others cut some
of Country music's greatest timeless tracks.  Released in 2012, the album of classic covers features
surviving members of Music Row's original 'A Team' studio musicians as well as guest appearances
by Old Crow Medicine Show, Elizabeth Cook, Jamie Johnson and Bobby Bare. The project has
continued to garner critical acclaim from Country, Americana and Alt-Country media who regard his
performance as a delightful homage to early Country music.

Touring with a live show that appeals to so many types of music fans, Chuck Mead has performed
with his Grassy Knoll Boys across the nation and across the world. Recently sharing the stage with
Old Crow Medicine Show, The Avett Brothers and the legendary Loretta Lynn, among others, he
continues to be a favored performer among an eclectic variety of venue, festival and entertainment
buyers.  This is an upbeat set for anyone who loves that special blend of
traditional Country,
rhythmic Western Swing and high energy Rockabilly
