8:00 pm
Location:
Off Campus Location
Room:
The Ark, 316 S. Main, Ann Arbor, MI

Mix the Hot Club of Paris with the sweaty soul of Dixieland, a couple blades of bluegrass, and a pinch of ragtime swinging swagger and you've just conjured the sound of The Appleseed Collective. Formed in late 2010, the Ann Arbor outfit has been traveling the country, spreading melodies, harmonies, and foot-stomping beats everywhere they go. Featuring resonator guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, and washboard, each show is a little different--you never know if you might be transported to a 1930s jazz club or the distant realm of bluegrass psychedelia. The Appleseed Collective can currently be found traversing the country in a big ol’ van, celebrating the release of their new album, Young Love. The Appleseed Collective has been getting attention from as far away as the UK, and their 2014 Ann Arbor Folk Festival appearance as well as their showcase at the International Folk Alliance Conference in February just put them on the musical radar of a whole lot of people. Come on out and hear their full show!

Room:
The Ark, 316 S. Main, Ann Arbor, MI

Singer-songwriter Colyn Cameron of Wake Owl has been immersed in the world of music for the past ten years. Now based in Vancouver, BC, and Portland, OR, Colyn was originally born and raised in southern California. After graduation Colyn trained in organic agriculture at Emerson College in England, worked on different farms throughout the UK, Germany, Chile, and Canada and traveled the world. Upon returning from his travels, Colyn spent some time playing in bands before deciding to record the songs he had written after his journey, and thus began his first completed body of work, the "Wild Country" EP, which served as a prelude to the band Wake Owl’s debut full-length, "The Private World of Paradise," with more of a rock-band instrumental sound. Recorded at National Freedom studios in Oregon with producer Richard Swift (The Shins, Foxygen), that album is effortlessly cohesive, telling stories of love, loss, and dreams. “ The title was a phrase that came to me one day and just stuck with me,” notes Colyn, “I wrote it down a lot and the more I thought about it the more I realized a lot of the songs on the album were me in some sort of paradisiacal imaginative state."The Private World of Paradise" places playful experimentation and raw emotion in perfect harmony, and it showcases a fine new songwriting voice. The young Sub Pop-label British songwriter Lyla Foy opens.

Horse Feathers

Event Type:
Performance
Sponsor:
Michigan Union Ticket Office (MUTO)
Time:
8:00 pm
Location:
Off Campus Location
Room:
The Ark, 316 S. Main, Ann Arbor, MI

Horse Feathers is the creation of Justin Ringle, who grew up in Lewiston, Idaho. The space, beauty, and nonconformist orientation of the West seem to be reflected in his spare, completely original sound that mixes minimalist economy with hints of classic country music and "Nebraska"-era Springsteen. Moving to Portland, Justin joined forces with other musicians to create one of the most talked-about groups in the Northwest. He named the band after a grandfather's favorite expression because it seemed to describe his music: things that seemingly can't exist together are spun into a magical fusion. Says Matt Fink of Paste: "Horse Feathers constructs music out of fragile whispers and half-remembered dreams, eagerly filling in the gaps between Sufjan Stevens and Iron & Wine on the American indie-folk continuum."

Pearl and the Beard

Pearl and the Beard
Event Type:
Performance
Sponsor:
Michigan Union Ticket Office (MUTO)
Time:
8:00 pm
Location:
Off Campus Location
Room:
The Ark, 316 S. Main, Ann Arbor, MI

Pearl and the Beard is three voices, one cello, one guitar, one glockenspiel, one melodica, several drums, one accordion, ninety-six teeth, and one soul. Jocelyn Mackenzie, Emily Hope Price, and Jeremy Styles came together in New York. Their unique brand of brightly melodic songcraft began to blossom, and the band’s genre-bending and expectation-defying sound has since burst the trio out of the confines of the New York music scene. They’ve caught the attention of the Boston Globe, Filter Magazine, NPR, and thousands of wildly dedicated fans both local and international. The band captivates their audience from first note to last, leaving fans and press alike completely engrossed in the world they’ve created. From subway platform to park to field to brightly lit venue stage, Pearl and the Beard takes over the minds of whoever happens to be there. The Wall Street Journal described one impromptu show this way: “…as Pearl and the Beard joyfully belted … to a growing crowd on the [subway] platform… commuters missed their trains to stay and listen, unsure what was happening—only that it was a New York moment not to be missed.” Pearl and the Beard did a terrific short set at the 2014 Ann Arbor Folk Festival.

John Gorka

Event Type:
Performance
Sponsor:
Michigan Union Ticket Office (MUTO)
Time:
7:30 pm
Location:
Off Campus Location
Room:
The Ark, 316 S. Main, Ann Arbor, MI

The modern renaissance of folk music began when John Gorka won the Kerrville Folk Festival's New Folk award in 1984, and it grew to maturity when he released his debut album, "I Know," three years later. Here was a singer-songwriter with a striking baritone voice that made you feel like you'd been hearing it all your life, with the songwriting chops to take on and see into nearly every type of song—from personal pieces about love and sadness, to bemused observations about daily life, political thinking-aloud, and sheer unmitigated whimsy. Almost three decades later, John still calls himself an aspiring folksinger, and his music just keeps getting deeper and better. John has graced the stage at Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, and etown, and has appeared on CNN.

Event Type:
Performance
Sponsor:
Michigan Union Ticket Office (MUTO)
Time:
8:00 pm
Location:
Off Campus Location
Room:
The Ark, 316 S. Main, Ann Arbor, MI

French-Algerian guitarist, singer and composer Pierre Bensusan can be called one of the most eloquent and diverse world musicians of our time. Born in what is now Algeria, Pierre moved to Paris with his family. when he was four. Influenced in those early days by the folk revival blooming in Britain, France, and North America, he began first to explore his own diverse musical heritage and then moved to the horizons beyond. At 17 he signed his first recording contract. Pierre Bensusan has been voted Best World Music Guitar Player by Guitar Player Magazine Readers Choice. He has the ability to make a single guitar sound like an entire band as he brings the audience on a mesmerizing musical journey. There is a sense of something both playful and serious in his work, an unparalleled sense of freedom in his compositions and his improvisations. His "manner" of playing defies classification—crossing among world, classical, jazz, traditional, folk and more. No one piece can be isolated as simply “Brazilian,""Arabic," or “French”; rather, they represent our world in its current state, a world sharing itself, fusing cultures together in ways we have never experienced. Not to be missed!
