Spirit Family Reunion (Brooklyn, NY) plays their own brand of “homegrown American music,” influenced by traditional American music such as country, bluegrass, folk and gospel. They have travelled the highways of America since 2009 delivering raw, high energy, honest music. They have shared the stage with musical heroes such as Pete Seeger and Levon Helm, and have given notable performances at festivals including Stagecoach, Austin City Limits, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and the legendary Newport Folk Festival three times.

Mamma’s Marmalade (Northampton, MA) has always brought a fresh vibrancy to old traditions. They have delved into the limitless capabilities of classic bluegrass instrumentation (banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and bass) and explored the parallels of acoustic music, ranging from the blues to Old Time, from gypsy jazz to bluegrass.

Mamma's Marmalade has always brought a fresh vibrancy to old traditions. Since their formation in the spring of 2014, the Northampton, MA-based quintet has delved into the limitless capabilities of classic bluegrass instrumentation (banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and bass) and explored the parallels of acoustic music, ranging from the blues to Old Time, from gypsy jazz to bluegrass. The authenticity of their music calls listeners back to a time when wooden instruments, analogue sound and sweet vocal harmonies captivated the hearts of America. With a deep respect for tradition, and an eye towards contemporary music, Mamma's Marmalade brings an exciting new energy to the enduring narrative of American folk music.

You may have seen one of their spirited performances on stages at The Fresh Grass Festival, Joe Val Festival, The Shea Theater and on many more stages throughout New York, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Maine. They have had the privilege of sharing bills with artists such as Jayme Stone and Fruition. They recently released their debut full length record, “Goodbye, Black Velvet” in June of 2017, followed by a successful release tour.
