KT Niehoff and Ivory Smith (AKA) Eat the Apple KT and Ivory began collaborating in 2010. They both have a long history of projects across artistic platforms, creating multi-dimensional experimental performance work, and share a love for both the bizarre and traditional. Their sound draws on this diverse history, creating an end result that is both theatrical and authentic in a raw way.

A Glimmer of Hope or Skin or Light was a dance/theater/cabaret/glam-rock musical created by veteran choreographer/director KT Niehoff. Commissioned by Seattle’s ACT Theatre, the event was performed to sold out houses in 2010 and again in 2015. This soundtrack emerged out of those haunted and humidly elegant performances – "raucous, daunting thing" dripping with an intense appreciation for the moment.

"This band has an established sound that rides the cusp of old time and bluegrass and manages to glean the best of both in the process. Caleb Klauder and Sammy Lind have kept it consistent. With the addition of Nadine Landry on bass and Reeb Willms on guitar, they have expanded the sound by adding a depth with their excellent musicianship and superb singing. The fiddle tunes rock out the way they always have with this band with fine readings of “Lost Gal” and “Chicken Reel” from Clyde Davenport, along with “Stillhouse,” “Old Molly Hare,” and “Paddy on the Turnpike.” Of course the whole band sings with gusto. The best, though, is the duet by Landry and Willms where they do a magnificent reading of “Mining Camp Blues” that catches the spirit and feel of wonderful duets done by the late Hazel Dickens and the reigning queen of old time singing, Alice Gerrard, a half-century ago. This top-notch program of ballads, songs, and tunes is varied and rich, a bit raucous and rowdy, while still touching a wide range of emotions. This one is a keeper."

- Bob Buckingham, Fiddler Magazine

Squirrel Butter, husband and wife duo of Charlie Beck & Charmaine Slaven, started performing together after meeting at a music festival in 2005. Sharing a deep love of traditional music, they explore the genres of old-time, early bluegrass, blues, country, & cajun while adding their unique perspective to these traditions and threading these influences into their original compositions.

Widely regarded for his original songs that blend compelling melodies, smart lyrics and lush arrangements, Spencer Day has wooed audiences around the world and they have enthusiastically supported him for over ten years at venues as diverse as Birdland in New York, the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Jazz Alley in Seattle, the Pacific Rim Jazz Festival in Manila, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, Tanglewood Music Center in Boston, and on national television on The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

For his recent album “Daybreak”, which debuted #1 on the iTunes Jazz Chart, Day crafted five new works that blend seamlessly with the cover tunes to create a moving tribute to the time, sound, feel, and sensibility that defined the California mid-century experience. “Daybreak” evokes the breezy feel of a sunny Southern California afternoon. Classics including “Groovin”, “A World Without Love” and “Never My Love” have been re-imagined and interpreted in Spencer’s trademark honey baritone voice. “Daybreak” reflects Spencer’s roots in the Great American Songbook, with a contemporary, upbeat twist that has become his signature sound.

For his upcoming tour dates, expect to hear original songs from his soon to be released CD, “Angel City”.
