António Zambujo

António Zambujo is one of the bright young stars leading the fado renaissance in Portugal. With a silky, plaintive tenor voice, he is breathing fresh life into this old musical style, expressing not only the sorrow and longing but also the joy in this passionate music. Zambujo has perhaps a deeper connection to the roots of fado than his contemporaries, as he grew up listening to the “Cante Alentejano,” one…

Ariana Gillis

This singer/songwriter has been turning heads with her arresting voice and unusual song topics for years, winning fans like the “Dean of American Rock Critics” Dave Marsh and Elton John’s lyricist and collaborator Bernie Taupin. Chosen as Young Performer of the Year at the 2009 Canadian Folk Music Awards, she is fulfilling the promise many people have seen since she put out her first EP when she was 17.

Art Vandalay

Art Vandalay

What started out as an alter ego for songwriter Brandon Henry has become a full-fledged band and a breath of fresh air in the Twin Cities’ Americana/roots-rock scene. Combining the crisp jazz rhythms of drummer Calvin Keasling with keyboard wizard Ben Cook-Feltz’s Benmont Tench-like piano licks and layered harmonies make Art Vandalay’s music “impossibly catchy” (Duluth News-Tribune).

His recording and film work has netted him 4 Grammy Awards, 6 Billboard Awards and an…
