When you first hear the haunting chamber folk of Vermont duo Cricket Blue, you might think of Simon & Garfunkel or of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.
Indie folk duo from Burlington Laura Heaberlin and Taylor Smith are Cricket Blue. NPR Music calls Cricket Blue “master storytellers” and the All Scene Eye says Cricket Blue “sets a new standard for fiction-folk.” They were voted “Best Folk Group” in Vermont’s Seven Daysie Awards and they've played stages and folk festivals around the United States and Canada.

Rutland based singer-songwriter Phil Henry exudes the skill of a craftsman and the authenticity of an artist. He builds detailed worlds and characters who speak through Phil’s words, with “…vivid lyrical imagery that captures the imagination.” (Seven Days)
The upbeat acoustic rhythm and melodic sensibility and lush instrumental treatment is no carbon-copy of popular or folk radio songs, but is instead an expression of Phil’s individuality and craft.

Mikahely is a singer/songwriter/guitarist from Madagascar, but his music transcends boundaries!
Mikahely draws inspiration from traditional Malagasy rhythms and lullabies to create his own unique sounds on guitar and valiha (a zither-like instrument made from bamboo). His songs highlight pressing social and environmental issues facing Madagascar and the world, such as climate change, biodiversity conservation and children's rights. Having toured in Madagascar and Europe, he now brings his music to new audiences in the United States.
