Lucinda Williams –The Daughter of award-winning poet Michael Williams, who invested her with a “Culturally rich, economically poor” upbringing, singer/songwriter Williams first garnered national recognition when Mary Chapin Carpenter’s version of her song “Passionate Kisses” won a Grammy. Her seminal roots-country record “Car Wheels on a Gravel Road” has influenced a generation of songwriters. Williams’ 2008 release “Little Honey” was nominated for the new “Best Americana Album” Grammy. This special acoustic appearance, her fifth on Mountain Stage, is in advance of her tenth album “Blessed,” due in March 2011.


Red Horse - A “folk supergroup” comprised of acclaimed singer/songwriters Eliza Gilkyson, John Gorka and Lucy Kaplansky, Red Horse is the culmination of years of friendship and admiration. These three veteran songwriters, all armed with resumes that have touched every aspect of folk, have teamed up to cover each other’s songs and breathe new life into old favorites. The project was inspired by collaborative shows that celebrated the 25th anniversary of Red House Records, they decided to make it official with a recording.


Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion - The youngest daughter of Arlo Guthrie and the granddaughter of Woody Guthrie, Sarah Lee Guthrie was surrounded by singer/songwriters like Pete Seeger, Ramblin' Jack Elliott and Hoyt Axton throughout her childhood. Blending alternative folk and country with a hint of rock and soul, Sarah Lee made her singing debut in 1991 on the Grammy nominated recording “Woody's 20 Grow Big Songs.” In 1999, Sarah Lee teamed up with South Carolinian indie rocker - and future husband - Johnny Irion. Since the couple’s debut in 2005, they’ve toured extensively both as a duo and as part of the “Guthrie Family Rides Again” tour (with Arlo Guthrie), released the children’s album “Go Waggaloo,” a live DVD “Folk Song,” Irion’s solo release “Ex Tempore,” and parented two young daughters. Their current release, “Bright Examples,” produced by Vetiver’s Andy Cabic, moves takes their country-rock sound in a dreamy and psychedelic direction.


The Low Anthem - Based in Providence, RI, The Low Anthem was founded in 2006 by poet/folkie Ben Know Miller and New Jersey jazz bassist (and baseball fanatic) Jeff Prystowsky. The two originally met at a summer baseball league in Connecticut. The group - described as “Folk Americana” - added classically trained composer and clarinetist Jocie Adams in 2007. On “Oh My God, Charlie Darwin,” the band’s third release, the trio played a total of 27 instruments ranging from zither, trumpet, pump organ and Tibetan Singing Bowl. For its new release on Nonesuch Records, the group added fourth member Mat Davidson.


Ivan & Alyosha- Seattle based duo Tim Wilson and Ryan Carbary took the name for their group from the writings of Russian novelist/essayist Fyodor Dostoyevesky. They released an EP, “The Verse, The Chorus,”in April 2010, described by NPR as “Utterly charming.” Another EP, “Fathers Be Kind” followed, filled with ethereal harmony and guitar hooks abound.
