Falcon Ridge Folk Festival is the Northeast’s biggest
American music and dance gathering, and the recent “Most Wanted” artists have included luminaries such as Lucy Wainright-Roche and Red Molly. The 2012 “Most Wanted” tour showcases Pesky J. Nixon, ilyAIMY, Blair Bodine, and Louise Mosrie. Catch these emerging folk artists first at Urban H2O!
Of Pesky J, Nixon, Jay Moberg of Boston’s WUMB says “These guys represent what I love about music…great playing, thoughtful lyrics, and musicians who actually enjoy playing together!”
Fronted by acoustic guitars and tightly interwoven harmonies, ilyAIMY is live percussive performance, a “combustible attack on the usual singer-songwriter fare,” and “a welcome jolt” in folk.
Hailed as a “songbird with heart,” Blair Bodine brings a
compelling mix of lyrical mastery and soul-stirring melodies to her music. Blair’s songs uplift and unravel before you with themes of love, loss, humanity, and spirituality.
Louise Mosrie has been compared to Nanci Griffith, Lucinda
Williams, and Patty Loveless. She has shared the stage with, among others, Allison Moorer, Greg Trooper, Diana Jones, and Michelle Malone.
