Falcon Ridge ‘Most Wanted’ Preview Tour comes to Electric Maid in Washington DCJuly 8, with Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes & Gina Forsyth, two of the 3 top voted artists from the 2015 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist showcase invited to perform in the Most Wanted Song Swap on the festival main stage this year. Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes are fast making a name for themselves as New Jersey’s alternative folk powerhouse. From beginnings in 2011, they have launched into success both on the air and on the ground: their debut album, Life On Fire, reached #8 on the Roots Music chart and charted on Folk DJ’s list of most played 2014 albums, and the band has appeared onstage at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, in studios, and as an Emerging Artist at the 2015 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, and voted one of the Most Wanted Artists to return to the festival this year on the main stage. With their 2016 release, Welcoming The Flood, they stand ready to broaden that success, expanding both the lyrical imagery of Scott’s songwriting and the catchy, complex sound of the band. Reviewers have dubbed them “Dance hall folk”, “musical scamps,” “the future of folk rock,” and “an Indie Folk music that could work on street corners or big stages.” www.scottwolfson.com “This band doesn’t hesitate to ignite like a match on their fiery second collection, Welcoming The Flood. Listen to these dudes…these people are magicians…wizards…” - John Apice, No Depression - "Scott Wolfson & Other Heroes is a talent-laden band. They're equally comfortable going electric or acoustic, and Welcoming the Flood is full of well-crafted songs that reveal new insights with repeated listening." - John Platt, WFUV - New Orleans-based Gina Forsyth is an award-winning singer/songwriter, who is known for her wizardry on fiddle and guitar. With an alto as unique as it is soulful, unpretentious songs that cut straight to the heart, and a wicked sense of humor, her live performances are legend. Considered one of the best Cajun fiddlers in Louisiana, Gina is in demand from other great Louisiana musicians to play club gigs and festivals, some of the same talent that backs her up when she plays as Gina Forsyth and Friends. On Gina’s latest CD, Promised Land, the title song reached #1 on the Folk DJ list in January 2012 and the CD ended the month at #3. It also made the final voting round of 50 by the Recording Academy to determine the nominees for “Best Folk Album” for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards. “In the tradition of Guthrie, Dylan and Prine, Gina Forsyth is writing and singing, not just fiddling while America burns.” – Rheta Grimsley Johnson, Daily Journal - www.ginaforsyth.com
