Kristyn Harris


$16.50

Texas-bred musical powerhouse, KRISTYN HARRIS, is noted for her shimmering vocals, solid swing rhythm guitar style, unique songwriting, award winning yodel, and captivating stage presence. At 22 years, she is the youngest person in history to be awarded the Western Music Association Entertainer of the Year (2016) and only the 2nd woman to have received this honor. She is also a 2-time recipient of the WMA Female Performer of the Year (2014, 2015), and was named the 2013 Academy of Western Artists Female Vocalist of the Year. Her singing has been praised as "timeless" with "the warmth and power of Texas sunshine".

Though not raised in a musical household, Kristyn began singing and playing at age 14 when she felt strongly inspired to pick up a guitar - and it has rarely left her hands since. Discovering an instant passion, she launched into a headlong pursuit of the music that grabbed her – primarily the vintage arrangements, captivating chord structures, ranching themes and uplifting melodies that cornerstone western swing and cowboy music (later, throwing in country, 1940s big band, gypsy jazz, and traditional folk song influences to her music, and building a gospel repertoire). Somewhere along the way it became her career path.
.
Songs of the western lifestyle have also gone hand in hand with her passion for land, livestock, and horses. Along with pursuing horsemanship, Kristyn has ventured into the cattle business via a small herd of black angus, and these facets of her life commonly seep their way into her songs and shows. You can still find her combining these passions, too, when she rides into rodeo arenas on her once-wild mustang to sing the Star Spangled Banner.

In June of 2015 Kristyn released her 3rd solo album, "Down the Trail", which went on to be named the WMA Western Album of the Year a few months later, as well as the Rural Roots Music Commission Pure Country & Western CD of the Year, and charted #1 on the western music DJ charts for Fall 2015. The same year, she became the Cowtown Society of Western Swing Rising Star of the Year. She has received the 2013 Cowboy Swing Album of the Year for “Let Me Ride”, the 2012 Crescendo (Rising Star) Award and 2012 Female Yodeler of the Year from the Western Music Association.  National television appearances include RFD-TV’s “The Penny Gilley Show”, “The Shotgun Red Variety Show”, and Nickelodeon’s popular game show, “Figure It Out”. She has been featured in multiple western documentaries, including a film that aired throughout 4 European countries in 2014.

Kristyn is packaged with an energetic and genuine style that makes her love of what she does evident and contagious. Keeping a heavy and widespread tour schedule that spreads both nationally and internationally, she frequently performs as a solo act and with larger ensembles.
  As one venue put it:
"This bundle of energy and talent is 'the rage' on stage from the east coast to the west and if you can stay seated when she finishes her performance you're prob'ly 'bout ready for the grave!!"

Spencer & Rains


$16.50
Tricia Spencer  is a Kansas fiddler who grew up learning the tradition of old time music from her Grandparents.  At an early age, she was perched up on some stage tapping her foot to the beat of fiddles, banjos, mandolins and guitars.  While growing up, her free time was spent traveling to festivals and fiddling contests throughout the Midwest where she learned from the likes of Pete McMahan, Cyril Stinnet, Lymon Enloe, Dwight Lamb, Amos Chase, and Lucy Pierce. Tricia is multi-instrumentalist who has studied with some of the great masters and is highly sought after as a performer, dance fiddler, and instructor.
Howard Rains is a native Texas artist and a fourth generation fiddler (or “VY-lin,” as his grandfather would say) from a musical and artistic family whose two obsessions are painting and playing the archaic style of fiddling of his home state. Howard plays rare, old tunes learned from friends, family, mentors, and old recordings. As much known for his painting as his fiddling, Howard has painted many of the great old time musicians, both living and gone.
Together, Spencer & Rains have performed and taught nationally and internationally, preserving and building upon the traditions of their region. The husband and wife duo are known for their twin fiddle harmony, which is a product of the influence of midwestern Scandinavian fiddlers Tricia heard as a child.  At the same time,  Howard’s distinct repertoire reintroduces listeners to the pre-contest styles of Texas fiddling. That same sense of harmony is in their vocals, as well, which they pull from all manner of American folk music. Both multi-instrumentalists, they are steeped in tradition and are dedicated to the preservation, performance, and teaching of old time music.

Katy Guillen & The Girls


$22.00
On the dawn of their sophomore album release Heavy Days, Katy Guillen and the Girls have established themselves as an authentic, authoritative rock band. They are known to pack in crowds at blues roadhouses and prominent concert venues alike, supporting major touring acts or headlining festivals and bills of their own. In their short time as a band, the trio has shaped their own musical identity, rooted heavily in the blues but taking cues from the timeless guitar riffs of Jimi Hendrix to the visionary songwriting of Patty Griffin and the indie rock revivalist sound of Heartless Bastards.
Propelled by a loyal contingent in their hometown of Kansas City and an impressive showing as finalists at the 2014 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Katy Guillen and the Girls have since taken their vivacious brand of blues rock to stages across the globe. In addition to a persistent cross-country performance schedule, they’ve accepted invitations to play the Montreal International Jazz Festival (July 2014) and Joe Bonamassa’s Keeping the Blues Alive At Sea cruise (February 2015). In November 2014, they were sponsored by a cultural development organization (Kultur i Väst) to take a 10-day tour of Sweden. Most recently, they opened for The Doobie Brothers at the Foundation for the Children of the Californias’ annual benefit concert in San Diego (October 2015). They have also become one of Kansas City’s most sought-after groups, earning prestigious slots at local festivals like Middle of the Map Fest and Boulevardia, and routinely selling out 500-plus-capacity venues.
Though the band formed less than 4 years ago, it took root when Guillen first picked up the guitar at the age of 8. At 14, she began participating in blues jams around Kansas City, and within a few years she was a featured guest with local blues legends like John Paul’s Flying Circus. By 2010, she was writing songs and collaborating with veteran drummer Go-Go Ray, with whom she released her first album, When I Get Away.
In September 2012, Guillen was offered an opening slot for Royal Southern Brotherhood at renowned Kansas City blues venue Knuckleheads Saloon, but at the time didn’t have a backing band. When she enlisted the talents of bassist Claire Adams and drummer Stephanie Williams, an immediate chemistry formed that would eventually push her songs to new heights. Not content to simply hold down the beat, Williams brings a signature melodic percussive voice to the group, compelled by her rock influences and experience in jazz ensembles. With Adams’ instincts as a multi-instrumentalist and composer, her impeccable bass lines and backing vocals are an ideal complement to Guillen’s searing, commanding guitar licks. While Guillen’s years as a seasoned blues guitarist—along with her education in flamenco guitar style—have informed her songwriting, the group’s collective strengths lend an immediacy to her songs while elevating and substantiating her earnest lyrical delivery.
Heavy Days will be the follow-up to Katy Guillen and the Girls’ 2014 self-titled debut album, and the next chapter in their growth as a group. They will be teaming up with Vizztone Label Group and starting an independent record label for the release, which will be available at a May 21 show in Kansas City and worldwide in mid-June. Their summer tour schedule brings new festivals and destinations, including New York, Florida and Michigan. With every new opportunity and locale, Katy Guillen and the Girls spread their infectious and original mix of classic American genres to eager music lovers and expand their already sizable fanbase.

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day Weekend
with The Here & Now


$22.00

Bio: student of the violin since the age of 3 and began studying Irish fiddle at the age of 14. His classical training culminated with a degree in viola performance at the University of Minnesota and graduate work at UT Austin. His Irish music roots came under the tutelage of Martin Dowling, Liz Carroll, Brendan Mulvhill and James Kelly. Christopher has received numerous awards and recognitions for his outstanding achievements in Irish music. He competed in three All-Ireland world competitions.
Shortly after arriving in Austin in 2001, Chris combined forces with other traditional Irish musicians as founding members of the highly energetic Texas Irish band Cluan. Since then, he has been a member of and recorded with several other Texas based ensembles including Blaggards, Aidan and Tea Merchants, who won the 2007 Austin Music Award for Best World Music. Christopher has not only performed throughout the United States and Ireland, but at home in Austin is a widely respected fiddle teacher with an extensive roster of students. Once again, Chris has combined forces with several other highly acclaimed traditional Irish musicians as founding members of The Here & Now.

 From Tara, Co. Meath in Ireland Niamh moved to Austin in August 2014. As a child Niamh took lessons with the infamous Antoin McGabhann and still quotes him as one of her biggest influences. Niamh has enjoyed a varied career as a musician having toured extensively with notable acts such as Riverdance, Project West, The Dhol Foundation, The Chieftans, John Williams and many more to boot. Prior to moving to Austin, Niamh lived in London where she carved out career as a recording session musician while also undertaking a masters in Music Therapy. Niamh now works as a contract music therapist and session musician in Austin and is excited about the prospects for The Here & Now.

Rob Forkner claims he was born on a paddle-wheel gambling boat in Louisiana. Moving away from the boat a short time later he was fortunate enough to spend time living in many parts of the world. While living in Alaska, he discovered Irish music after a friend gave him an old cassette tape. He decided to learn how to play the bodhran after hearing the playing of the great Johnny McDonagh. Since he needed a drum, and it was impossible to find one in Alaska, Rob started building his own in the basement of his parent’s house out of birch bark and salmon skin.
Many years later, Rob used the time to refine his drum building skills, building a highly successfully business, Metloef Irish Drums. For fun, Rob studied Geology and ended up at the University of Texas. The world calls him Dr. Rob now. He also honed his skills as a mighty fine bodhran player. He became a regular sit-inner with Cluan and was a founding member of Tea Merchants, both local Austin Irish music bands. In 2007, Tea Merchants were awarded the Austin Music Award for Best World Music.
Rob has competed in and medaled in a few of the fleadhs both in the US and in Tipperary. And yes, it is a long way there. A few years ago the Geology thing took Dr. Rob over the pond to Denmark and Belgium. But alas, Austin has him back as a founding member of The Here and Now.

Though still a young man, guitar-player Joseph Carmichael has already collected an impressive resume. His primary project Flashpoint -- a contemporary Irish trio -- has recorded two albums, and performed at concerts and festivals throughout the southern US and has shared the stage with top-flight Irish music groups FullSet and the legendary Solas. He is a regular member with Ashley Davis, a singer/songwriter from Lawrence, KS. 2013 saw Joseph in his first overseas performance, playing with Gregory and Alex Grene of the Prodigals, as part of the Ag Seinm Traditional Arts camp in Cavan. Joseph has also performed with nationally touring Celtic-Rock band Needfire, traveling as far as Virginia and California, as a continuing duo with fiddler Hailey Sandoz (now under the name Óga), as well as a host of Irish music luminaries including James Conway, Brendan Power, Cormac De Barra, Buddy Connolly, Oisín MacDiarmada, and Liz Carroll. And now, Joseph is an integral founding member of the Austin based group The Here & Now.

Albert & Gage


$22.00
Austin, Texas duo Albert and Gage (Christine Albert and Chris Gage) have a personal and musical chemistry that radiates from the stage.  The joy they experience making music together is evident as they travel through their musical roots, moving from country and folk to blues and French chansons.  The integrity of their musicianship and the rare blend of their voices create a unique and cohesive sound as Gage effortlessly switches from guitar to piano and accordion throughout their set to follow the mood of the music. 

Christine Albert has been described as a “wondrous singer with a beautiful focus and unrestrained grace”, and had a prolific recording career as a solo artist before meeting Gage, including the acclaimed “Texafrance” series, a bilingual tribute to her European family.  Chris Gage toured with Red Willow Band, Roy Clark and Jimmie Dale Gilmore and is currently playing guitar with Jerry Jeff Walker.

 Since teaming up in 1996 they have released six albums on their own MoonHouse Records label and built the successful MoonHouse Studio, where Gage maintains a full schedule as an in demand producer and musician.

Sawmill Vagrants



$16.50

Although the current incarnation of the Vagrants has only been playing together for a year, Lloyd and Hollis come from a family which has been deeply involved in old time music for many years and have a number of recordings. James is an in-law of theirs and from a music rich background as well. The remaining Vagrants came slumming around at different times in recent years and found themselves welcomed in. What started as a great way to spend a Friday or Saturday night playing fun music resulted in invitations to play festivals and local venues, and now these no good Vagrants find themselves actually having to work at it!
