ABOUT THE BANDS
The Blind Owl Band: Hailing from Saranac Lake, NY, in the heart of the Adirondack mountains, The Blind Owl Band has been creating what they call Freight Train String Music since 2010. And a freight train it truly is. Although the quartet's sound is rooted in traditional stringed instruments (guitar, basses, banjo and mandolin), their music surges forward with the strength and power of a hundred-ton diesel locomotive. Songs barrel down the tracks with momentum and intensity normally found in much heavier, heavily amplified music.
The Blind Owl Band builds on what they regard as a basic approach to traditional songwriting and arranging and push the envelope, stretching the limits of raw, acoustic instrumentation. In just under eight years the band has released three albums and toured extensively throughout the eastern US, logging nearly 750 shows across 17 states since January 2012. They've played on almost every festival east of the Mississippi and shared the stage with countless artists across all genres of the musical spectrum. This freight train has no one conductor but four shovel boys pushing the limits of their engine night after night, so climb aboard and get ready for a one-of-a-kind ride.
The Honey Smugglers are a Rochester based folk-rock band that play music for, and from, the heart. Their unique blend of thoughtful and catchy songwriting, dazzling instrumentation, and powerful vocals, coupled with the thrill of their live performances, has garnished a dedicated and loving fan base in the Western New York music scene. Since their conception in late 2014, the band has released two full length albums and are in the midst of completing their third. Although the band plays instruments that are typically linked to the sounds of bluegrass, Frank de Blase of Rochester's City Newspaper says "Don't let the instrumentation make up your mind for you. There are simply too many subgenres to list here. The Honey Smugglers are bottled joy. Crack one open".
