Charlie Mosbrook 0 C. Mosbrook www.charliemosbrook.com Charlie Mosbrook is an award-winning songwriter, performer, and advocate for American folk music. Beginning his career in 1988 as a street musician, he quickly became a popular open mic host throughout Northeast Ohio. From these early roots he nurtured his songwriting, musicianship, and stagecraft and today performs for major festivals and concert series throughout the US. His recordings of original and traditional songs have earned him rotation on many popular folk radio programs around the world. As a folk music advocate Charlie continues to organize local open mics and serves as the president for Folknet and vice president to FARM (Folk Alliance Region Midwest) In the summer of 2018 Charlie’s song “Remember Who We Are” earned him 2nd place in the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival Songwriting contest. The honor included an invitation to perform on the mainstage during the festival. The recognition highlighted a long history of helping to continue the legacy of Guthrie’s music including a performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum during its week long conference in 1996 titled Hard Travelin’: The Life and Legacy of Woody Guthrie. That performance received a credit in Robert Santelli’s book by the same name. Charlie has led Woody Guthrie workshops and performed his songs for schools, festivals, and libraries across the country. The Library of Congress American Folk Life Center has recorded Charlie performing Guthrie’s song “I Ain’t Got No Home”. In addition to the WG songwriting contest Charlie’s original music has been featured on Folk Alley, NoBio Charlie Depression, The Standing O Project, WFMT’s Midnight Special, Strings and Beyond, and other respected outlets for folk music. In 2011 He was listed as Cleveland's Best Singer-Songwriter in a Scene Magazine readers poll. Suffering an incomplete spinal cord injury in 2010, Charlie now spends much of his time using a wheelchair and cane for mobility. A two-time Ironman triathlete and 12-time marathon finisher, he drew on his experience in endurance sports to continue moving forward as a performer, touring annually and independently by train, bus, or air. Locally Charlie performs monthly for patients at Cleveland’s Metrohealth Spinal cord injury rehabilitation unit every month. He also serves the City Council of Cleveland Heights on a Transportation Advisory Board advocating for people with disabilities. As an advocate for folk music, Charlie serves Northeast Ohio’s Folk and traditional music and dance society, Folknet as secretary 2014 and President 2015-current. He serves FARM (Folk Alliance Region Midwest) as Workshop Coordinator 2014 -current and Vice president 2017-current. As a music educator, Charlie currently teaches with Roots of American Music. His service as an open mic host began in 1989 at the Coventry Arabica and continues today at the Phoenix Coffeeshop on the same street 30 years later, supporting his goal of providing every voice an opportunity to singout and be heard. Showcase goals: Increase artist awareness. Listening rooms, house concerts, festivals.

CALLE SUR (Panamanian/Colombian Duo) 0 Calle Sur Calle Sur is what happens when you combine man and woman, Black and White, urban and rural. Hearing Calle Sur gives you that gorgeous feeling that something just left you tingling, but you can't say exactly why. Seeing Calle Sur is living proof that the terms "Hispanic" and "Latino" can't be summarized. Ed East is Panamanian. His upbringing in Panama City meant noise, hustle, bustle, and those chaotic smells and sights so characteristic of any Third World metropolis. It also meant a fierce need for individuality and lots of musical innovation and creativity, as expressed in the work of his compatriot, Rubén Blades. Karin Stein, his Colombian partner, brings to the music of Calle Sur the perspective of her rural upbringing. Very rural, that is.  She is a cowgirl from the eastern Llanos or plains of Colombia. No kidding. While he rode buses and watched TV, she rode horses and watched the red ibis stalk across emerald green rice fields. There was no TV in her neck of the woods. No electricity for that matter. Only a small transistor radio which sometimes worked, and from which she gleaned tidbits of an outer world. His veins were filled with the fusion of world beats converging in a big city. Her soul harbored haunting cowboy tunes from her traditional Llanero culture, a fascinating people whose music remains one of Latin America's best kept secrets. They met in Iowa, of all places. They discovered that they both had moved to Iowa on student scholarships, had stayed, and had built a life in a foreign but welcoming land, where their Latin heritage began to blend with their predominantly Anglo-Saxon surroundings. They have been pioneers in a state that has seen a significant influx of Latinos only in the last 15 years. Calle Sur has performed in 46 of the 50 continental United States, and abroad as far as Malaysia and Romania.  They have composed the film score for three documentaries, and their music has been featured in two feature-length movies.  Calle Sur is comfortable performing anything from house concerts to large-venue concerts - either as a duo or as part of one of their eight Artes Latinas Ensembles (www.artes-latinas.com). This duo has charisma. It has class. And it has talent to boot. One minute, Ed's drumming makes you jump to your feet. The next, you sway to the samba he plays on his guitar. Karin strums a mean 6/8 beat on her Venezuelan cuatro, then effortlessly switches to Bolivian panpipes. Ed's versatile voice takes you from guajira and jazz to bossa nova and salsa tunes. Karin melts you away with a Ladino lullaby, then swings you with an Afro-Caribbean cumbia.  And when they sing one of their boleros together, be prepared to feel goosebumps run up and down your spine!

Guitar virtuoso, Shane Hennessy-seeks private showcase opprotunities 0 David Shaughnessy Guitar virtuoso, Shane Hennssy, is seeking private showcase opportunities at FAI NOLA.  Shane has an official showcase with Culture Ireland on Wednesday, January 22.  He would love to perform at a few private showcase rooms as well.    Shane Hennessy is an Irish virtuoso guitarist, songwriter, & composer. Coming from a background in Irish traditional music, Shane has been captivating audiences globally for the past few years, with sell-out solo tours in Europe, Russia, and the United States under his belt, as well as regular appearances at major international music festivals. Described by legendary guitarist Tommy Emmanuel as “a brilliant entertainer and an amazing musician who transcends the guitar the same way Muhammed Ali transcended boxing”, Shane has developed an unmistakably unique voice on the guitar, blending his native Irish music with elements of jazz, country, blues, funk, classical, soul, world, and hip-hop, both vocally and instrumentally. His live shows are known for their energy and variety - “anything from Bach to Beyoncé!; Irish Music Magazine have called him “one of the most exciting live performers of his generation”. In 2019, Shane was a firm favourite on the festival scene in the United States, appearing at prestigious roots festivals such as MerleFest (Wilkesboro, NC) and Appaloosa (Front Royal, VA), as well as numerous Irish and Celtic Festivals including Milwaukee Irish Fest (WI), Kansas City Irish Fest (MO), Irish Fest Chicago (IL), Michigan Irish Music Fest (Muskegon, MI), and many more. Shane has released two albums of original music - Zephyrus (2015), and Marrakech (2017). A third album is due for release in early 2020. He has also worked with Riverdance composer and Grammy-winner Bill Whelan, and in 2017 he sold out a solo show in Ireland’s National Concert Hall for the release of ‘Marrakech’. To quote Marty Whelan of RTÉ Radio (Ireland): “There was part of me that didn't really believe that he could do what he does on one guitar until he came into the studio, sat down in front of me, and played. I thought there had to be loops, or extra tracks, or recording tricks, and there was none of that - my jaw dropped! What a talent!” Please contact David Shaughnessy with Uptown Artist Group for more info.  david@uptownartistgroup.com   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbIUgOrQoC4&list=PLN3Jw_wsqTZLMZBoC5Vq04vp7EWfs2rz3&index=1

Frances Luke Accord 0 Frances Luke Accord   Thanks for checking out Frances Luke Accord! Contact Info Phone: 574-360-5929 Email: sam@franceslukeaccord.com Category of Folk: Indie-Folk Location: Chicago Description of Music: FLA is an American folk duo based out of Chicago. When Nicholas Gunty and Brian Powers put their songs and their voices together, there is a delicate and powerful magic that commands the room to attention. The duo is known as Frances Luke Accord, and they are what NPR’s Mountain Stage calls “the definition of lean-in music.” Their soulful branch of indie-folk is orchestrated with spare and sophisticated acoustic threads woven into a lush backdrop for their intimate melodies. Rich, up-close tenor harmonies lend their timeless songwriting an urgency that honors the Simon & Garfunkel comparisons but pushes beyond into the world of Bon Iver, Jose Gonzalez, and progressive folk music. Booking Goals: We'd love to connect with presenters of all types in your showcase room. We are eager to connect with more record labels, agents, talent buyers, and general industry folk as we head into a busy 2020 full of touring, new music, and many new stories!

Rondeau Katherine Rondeau She has an amazing set of pipes and knows how to use them - Rich Warren, Midnight Special/WFMT 2019 Album Unfortunate Point of View - 10 straight months on the Folk Alliance Folk DJ Charts/9 weeks on NACC Contact Info Phone: 609-432-9127 Email: showrondeau@gmail.com Category: Folk/Americana Location: New Jersey  Website: http://katherinerondeau.com Facebook: http://facebook.com/thekatherinerondeau Description Katherine Rondeau is a full-throttle singer-songwriter who focuses her passion for classic folk music through a thoroughly modern lens. After bursting onto the Philly folk scene in 2015, she was quickly recognized for her rich, bold voice and warm, engaging performance style. And what a voice it is! Iconic Folk DJ Rich Warren of WFMT’s Midnight Special program said it best: She possesses an amazing set of pipes and knows how to use them. Katherine’s soaring alto moves effortlessly through all facets of the folk genre – whether sharing a strong, haunting cry from an Appalachian-inspired murder ballad; leading a powerful, passionate call for social justice; or engaging her audiences to “join the choir” in a rousing singalong. Her 2019 release Unfortunate Point of View features seven original songs and four folk classics (including the #1 original song in January), and has spent eight consecutive months on the Folk Alliance Folk DJ charts. More than 20 Folk DJs across the country listed Katherine's self-produced album on their weekly top ten lists, and the accolades don’t stop there. Katherine Rondeau’s voice holds authenticity and soul in every note. Modern folk music in the finest tradition of the form. (Justin Helmer, KVSC) Booking Goals Folk world domination?
