Pinedrop's fresh Americana sound skillfully intertwines folk and bluegrass. This four-piece band from Brattleboro has played venues and festivals near and far, including MASS MoCA's acclaimed FreshGrass Festival. House Sparrow is a two-person band driven by synthesizers, baritone ukulele, heavenly vocals, and a lot of rumination on nature, waiting, death, and time. Lexi Weege is a blend of traditional blues roots, jazzy melodies and sassy lyrics.

House Sparrow
House Sparrow (formerly Francesca Shanks) is a two-person band driven by synthesizers, baritone ukulele, Francesca's heavenly voice, and a lot of rumination on nature, waiting, death, and time. Band members Francesca Shanks and Joe Aidonidis combine their talents to create a dreamy wall of sound that's worth a close listen.
Lexi Weege and the Wondertwins
Lexi Weege and the Wondertwins is a blend of traditional blues roots, jazzy melodies and sassy lyrics.

Born in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts wielding a Shure SM58 in her hand and red patent leather heels, Lexi Weege has been creating music her entire life, flirting with just about every singer’s role, from polka-dotted Big Band vocalist to glitter-haired, bloody-nosed rock frontwoman. Now in her twenty-second year, Lexi has refined her sound to a silky barroom jazz that tips respectful hats to the likes of Billie and Jessica (that would be Rabbit) that can swing into feisty blues numbers at the drop of said hat. Her sultry voice and sugar-brandy songs of endless summer and the cold, bittersweet winters that often follow are not to be missed.

The female performing artist has long been objectified, controlled, censored, restrained. This is what Lexi Weege refuses to be. Her music is passionate, alive, awakened; the narrative of a woman unashamed of her desires and unafraid to seize control. Weege conjures up decadent scenes of the roaring twenties with her stellar voice and jazz-influenced compositions. Constantly touring, performing, and creating, Lexi Weege has released a full-length album [Virgin, 2013] and more recently, "Sweet Moon", a '7 record, both recorded live to tape. Weege's insistence on analogue recording is evidence of her passion for authenticity in her music. "With the confidence to throw her all into the circus ring of theatricality, Lexi Weege stamps the mark of a true performer" (Bluesbunny.com).
