Skribe (Annapolis, MD)
Skribe travels from town to town in a blue hearse spreading their own blend of garage folk: a soulful sound that draws from roots Americana & the 60’s garage spirit. The bands’ latest release ‘Postcards’ rumbles & creaks from the blues punk growl of ‘Mayonnaise & Honey’ to the Hawaiian lapsteel laced ballad ‘Strangers’ – a tribute to The Kinks.
“Skribe plays an oil can called a canjo-zookie. It’s an eight-string guitar with a biting, blues-y rasp. Skribe’s got the voice (and the old-school Cadillac) to match. Accompanying himself on the suitcase-kick and hi-hat, Skribe’s “M.I.Y.” is a barn-burning roots number.” -Ben Naddaff-Hafrey NPR
The Hook & Bullet (Harrisonburg, VA)
Hook & Bullet is made up of Audrey and James Barnes. Based in the Shenandoah Valley, they hail from Wilkes Co, North Carolina – the land of Doc Watson and NASCAR.
Call them what you will…americana, indy folk, roots, or just an old-fashioned, new-time banjo and drum band. Their music resides in the sweet tension between old and new, between heartbreak and redemption, between creation and destruction.
