Jesse Milnes & Emily Miller perform country and old-time music, singing close harmony with Jesse's unique finger-picked guitar style and a healthy dose of old-time fiddling. Emily was raised playing and singing old-time and country music (the Louvin Brothers and the Stanley Brothers were household favorites), while Jesse grew up in the world of West Virginia old-time music, learning from masters like Melvin Wine and Ernie Carpenter. "An honest and powerfully nuanced expression of Appalachian roots music, captured with minimal production and reminiscent of the best early field recordings.” – Prescription Bluegrass
Red Tail Ring is the musical brainchild of Michael Beauchamp and Laurel Premo. The collaboration blends the loving attention of revivalist fervor with
the playful creativity of starting from scratch. Whether rendering a traditional tune or one of their many original compositions, the duo infuses
each song with musical imagination, haunting harmonies and instrumental artistry on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, jawharp, and plain-old foot stomping.
“The very best of the 21st century’s minimalist and highly original folk music . . . a peerless duo.” - American Roots UK
