Darcy Wilkin grew up surrounded by music, attending bluegrass festivals and coffee house concerts with her family. Her house was a regular stopover for touring musicians, where her folks would host jam sessions and parties where Darcy stayed up way too late, absorbing the music around her. She considers this unique upbringing a gift, as it led to her own musical path. She co-founded the Corn Fed Girls in 1997 and is an active solo performer. She released her debut solo album, Bristol, produced by Joe Newberry, in 2020.

Morgan Haner
is an American singer-songwriter, a transplant from southern Illinois who became an adopted Michigander by way of Chicago. He hesitates to use the word “americana” to describe his sound, and instead draws his inspiration from the wider range of the North American musical canon. His work contains elements of the Carter Family, Jimmy Reed, Dylan, The Band, Joni Mitchell, and Big Walter Horton, all in more-or-less equal measure. His songs don’t match the genre of “americana” so much as the genre matches him, sometimes like a poorly-tailored suit: it doesn’t quite fit, but looks good nonetheless.

Ben Traverse 
is a young balladeer with a very wide hat who commands a wide array of instruments in their mission to bring the finest traditional folk music into the 21st century. Proud Michigander and Earthwork Music Collective member, Traverse brings a forward-thinking, communal enthusiasm to an old and rich musical tradition. On their journey, they've released three albums: a totally solo collection of old time American ballads and songs in the spirit of Pete Seeger and the early Folkways Recordings catalog and two collaborative releases; one with Michael Dause (Moss Manor, Treeskin) of rollicking shanties and seafaring ballads, and the other with Nick Veine celebrating music of the Irish diaspora.

“Ben is the modern-day Pete Seeger. They're a musical archeologist who writes songs that sound like they’re from a hundred years ago.” -The Accidentals

“As a musician, Traverse is rooted in the past, forward-thinking, and fully present. Their foundation is solid and they care deeply about music and people” -Seth Bernard
