Sarah Goldfeather is a Minnesota-born, Brooklyn-based violinist, singer, and songwriter. She is the bandleader for her eponymous indie-folk band, Sarah Goldfeather, and released her “downright charming” and “endearing” EP (Listen To Them), Goldfeather, in January 2014. Her music features unusual but catchy melodies woven together with layers of rich vocal harmonies. In a backdrop of lush bluegrass scenery, her songs are un-mailed letters to people in her past and present. A “young and multi-talented” (The ABCs of NYC) performer, who is described as having a “a sweet, bubbly stage presence” (Gili Malinsky, writer for the New York Times and Village Voice), Sarah has performed across the sprawling New York City metropolis and cities along the East Coast alike, including recent shows at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, the Bowery Ballroom, Rockwood Music Hall, Barbès, the Bell House, the Atrium at Lincoln Center, and The Cell. Sarah was also a 2014 Bang on a Can fellow at Mass MoCA. Sarah currently resides in Bed-Stuy and is the caretaker of eleven houseplants.
Pete Lanctot and the Stray Dogs
New York Music Daily writes that, “Pete Lanctot personifies pretty much everything good about New York’s most happening music scene.” His songs are surreal and mysterious narratives featuring sordid casts of characters who’s origins are vague, and seem equally likely to be found in present day New York City, a Memphis juke joint of the 1920s or hitchhiking a depression era plains state highway and steeped in the American traditions of blues, folk and country. Backed by The Stray Dogs, a talented and versatile cast of musicians and improvisers Lanctot’s music is original, rabble rousing, heartbreaking and soul searching, always exploring the non-traditional without relying on reproduction.
