                                Dustbowl Revival

                                                                10 String

Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present Dustbowl Revival, a Venice, California-based roots collective that merges old school bluegrass, gospel, jug-band, swamp blues and the hot swing of the 1930’s, plus Nashville-based, progressive acoustic folk duo 10 String Symphony.

Known for their inspired live sets, the Dustbowl Revival boldly brings together many styles of traditional American music.  Some call it string band-brass band mash up.  Imagine Old Crow Medicine Show teaming up with Louis Armstrong’s Hot Fives and Sevens, or Bob Dylan and The Band jamming with Benny Goodman and his orchestra in 1938.  It’s infectious, joyous music - a youthful take on time-worn American traditions by the "Best Live Band in LA" - LA Weekly.

Since founder Z. Lupetin came west from Chicago to get the circus started, the group has grown steadily from a small string band playing up and down the west coast into a traveling mini orchestra featuring fiddle, mandolin, trombone, clarinet, trumpet, ukulele, drums, tuba, organ, a bass made from a canoe oar, harmonica and plenty of washboard and kazoo for good luck.  After placing several songs on ABC and Fox, and having tunes featured in independent films like "Made In China" (winner of SXSW), winning Americana song of the year from the Independent Music Awards (Tom Waits judging), playing festivals like Outside Lands and Live Oak and opening for bands like Lake Street Dive, Rebirth Brass Band, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Trombone Shorty, the band began barnstorming more extensively across the USA.

“With A Lampshade On,” Dustbowl Revival’s fourth album, shines a light on the band’s strength as a live act.  The CD captures a group of road warriors in their element, playing not to an audience, but with an audience.  To watch them onstage is to take part in an evolving conversation between an orchestra and audience.  The horns blast, the fiddle and mandolin swoon, and the howling vocals — shared by Z. Lupetin and Liz Beebe — rattle off stories about preachers, drinkers, lovers and holy rollers.  The crowd is encouraged to participate, of course.  Right at home at the crossroads of American jazz and folk traditions, Dustbowl Revival is participating in the evolution of American roots music, tipping a hat to what’s come before while looking ahead to what’s on the horizon.

10 String Symphony fiddler/vocalists Christian Sedelmyer (who also performs with the Jerry Douglas Band ) and Rachel Baiman met in Nashville, and realized a mutual love for the range and depth of the 5-String fiddle.  By the time their first full-length album was released in November 2012, their instrumentation had expanded to include clawhammer banjo and resonator mandolin, but they still maintained a stripped down, tightly woven and carefully arranged duo sound.  Decidedly contemporary in their musical approach, the duo showcases Sedelmyer’s virtuosic improvisation and creative harmonic soundscape ideas alongside Baiman’s old-time rhythm and emotional melodic sensibilities.

"The group is like a band of time-hopping vagabonds swirling through the centuries picking up and passing along tunes that make you want to swing, stomp and reel." - Santa Cruz Weekly

                                                 Seth Glier

                                                                                 Hannah Hoffman

Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present contemporary folk and pop singer/songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Seth Glier and Hannah Hoffman.  

Singer, songwriter, pianist, guitarist, producer and Grammy nominee Seth Glier is renowned for his fearless vocal delivery, musical exuberance and seasoned songwriting beyond his years.  A troubadour in every sense of the word who averages over 250 live performances annually, 26 year-old Glier has gone from opening act to headlining his own shows and playing major festivals.  He’s shared the stage with artists as diverse as James Taylor, Ani DiFranco, Edwin McCain, Martin Sexton, Emmylou Harris and Ryan Adams, and has quickly become known for his passionate live sets and powerful command of both piano and guitar.

On his fourth album for MPress Records, "If I Could Change One Thing,” Glier embraces a genuine modern-pop direction, marking a bold departure from his previous, more acoustic recordings.  Featuring collaborations with renowned songwriter Trent Dabbs, hit-maker Steve Seskin and Alex Wong, "If I Could Change One Thing" merges genres seamlessly, with universal songs about falling in and out of love and social action that capture a songwriter and performer at the peak of his young abilities.  The last two years have also garnered Seth musical placements on television (Lifetime and Bravo), as well as coveted slots on the Cayamo Cruise, at the Penang Jazz Festival in Malaysia and as a performer for former House Speaker Eric Cantor.

As a national spokesperson for the Autism Awareness Foundation and an advocate of Musicians On Call, and with a ROCK THE VOTE Road Trip 2012 stop under his belt, Seth has become increasingly comfortable expressing his social beliefs, both onstage and off.  In 2012 he took home Best Social Action Song for his track “The Next Right Thing” at the 11th Annual Independent Music Awards, his second IMA win. 

A soulful soprano, Hannah Hoffman is a versatile performer who engages her audience with dynamic performances not only of her own composing but an eclectic mix of standards she commands as her own.

                                                                                 Antje Duvekot

                                           Stockwell Brothers

Next Stage Arts Project, in collaboration with Twilight Music, Popolo and WOOL91.5, presents contemporary folk singer/songwriter Antje Duvekot and newgrass trio The Stockwell Brothers.

Antje Duvekot is a German-born, American-raised singer/songwriter whose songs have been critically praised for their hard-won wisdom, dark-eyed realism and street-smart romanticism.  Her bicultural upbringing and relative newness to English have helped shape her unique way with a song, giving her a startlingly original poetic palette.  They are the keys to the powerful, even revolutionary, empathy that informs everything she writes.  She has won some of the top songwriting awards including the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, the Kerrville Folk Festival Best New Folk Award and the Boston Music Award for Outstanding Folk Act.

Since the release of her debut studio CD “Big Dream Boulevard,” which was voted #1 Folk Release of 2006 by the Boston Globe and was named to the Top 10 Releases of the Year by National Public Radio's Folk Alley, Antje has been touring  extensively, criss-crossing the US and Europe.  She is a compelling live performer and has played at major festivals, including Newport, Mountain Stage, Philadelphia, Falcon Ridge, Great Waters and Kerrville.  Her second CD “The Near Demise of the High Wire Dancer” was voted top album of 2009 by lauded folk station WUMB 91.9 FM in Boston.

“She creates an entire, detailed world in verse, and takes you there with beautiful and understated melody.  Her songs are stunning paintings of color and shade and always generate the heat and light that real art should.” - Neil Dorfsman, producer of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Dire Straits

Bruce, Barry and Alan Stockwell's music spans traditional and progressive styles, but their trademark acoustic
sound features contemporary singer/songwriter material recast with banjo, alternative rhythms and three-part harmonies.  They cover straight ahead bluegrass songs, finger picked acoustic guitar ballads, full tilt breakdowns and traditional mandolin tunes mixed in with more unusual fare - Americana melodies riding world beat grooves and Celtic, jazzy, even neo-classical instrumentals.

Featuring 2005 Merlefest bluegrass banjo contest winner Bruce Stockwell, The Stockwell Brothers have performed alongside artists from Bill Monroe, Doc Watson and Earl Scruggs to Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Jonathan Edwards and Asleep At The Wheel, recorded with Mike Auldridge and Phil Rosenthal of the bluegrass supergroup The Seldom Scene, and toured throughout the United States and in Canada and Europe.  As a trio, they have released two albums, “Stobro” and “Leave My Dreams Alone.”  “Tasty arrangements; brotherly harmonies, perfectly blended instruments and great songs.” – Music Revue
