Arthur Watership

Indie Folk

Over time laced with an array of musical influences and experiences, Arthur Watership has cultivated a unique sound and style that is often compared to Kate Bush, Tori Amos and Scout Niblet. Arthur Watership is the name given to the spirit that comes from the passion in performance; the ghost at the helm of life's journey. Arthur Watership songs are centered around a love of nature and a longing to return to it, and the human mishaps that bring us back. The band is built of a small and sturdy crew of musicians on a variety of instruments ranging from pedal steel to the rare Viola da Gamba.

Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore with The Guilty Ones

American Roots Music

Roots music legends Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore have been friends for 30 years, but only recently realized they had never played music with each other.  So in 2017, Grammy winner Alvin and Grammy nominee Gilmore, decided to hit the highway to swap songs, tell stories, and share their life experiences. Though Texas born Gilmore was twice named Country Artist of the Year by Rolling Stone, and California native Alvin first came to fame in the hard rocking rhythm and blues band The Blasters, they discovered that their musical roots in old blues and folk music are exactly the same. The result of their collaboration is a rich excavation of Western swing, blues and early rock ‘n’ roll.
