Curtis & Loretta’s music comes straight from the heart. The husband and wife duo’s extraordinary harmonies and proficiency on a parade of stringed instruments create an alluring frame for their poignant original songs, and traditional pieces from America and the British Isles. The current menagerie includes mandocello, folk harp, guitars, clawhammer banjo, ukulele, and mandolin, plus a bit of kazoo, harmonica, and shakers. Curtis’ down-home sense of humor and Loretta’s theater background engage the audience in an experience that runs the gamut of rolling with laughter to holding back tears, with plenty of side-trips in between. They rack up countless miles each year, crisscrossing the country to deliver their own unique brand of folk singer/songwriter music.
"Keith Carpenter and Lynne Givler perform both as a duo and as members of the Pacific Northwest band Bridge. Over the last two years they have been working on a unique recording project call Simple Truth. It's a compilation of 24 original songs by Carpenter and three songs co-written with John Miller and Rick Hann. Half of the songs were recorded by Carpenter and Givler and the other half by various Northwest musicians. The genre of the their work covers a a lot of musical territory. So be prepared to travel a musical globe as they move from one song to the next. For their Nancy's Farm performance they will be sharing the stage with their producer Julian Smedly on violin and their recording engineer Ron Peters on guitar. "
After many years honing their powerful harmony vocals around Pacific Northwest campfires, Dale Adkins, Don Share and Joe Wilmhoff have decided to take their repertoire of soulful acoustic music to the stage. The unique vocal connection between these three singers is the centerpiece of Old Growth Quartet. The band features an eclectic
repertoire of traditional and original music with deep roots in bluegrass, country, and folk. The band’s instrumental firepower features the virtuosic lead guitar playing of Dale Adkins and the riveting fiddling of Paul Elliott. Joe Wilmhoff (bass) and Don Share (guitar) provide a rhythm section and groove that will grab your attention.

Bill Evans is an internationally recognized five-string banjo life force. As a performer, teacher, writer and composer, he brings a deep knowledge, intense virtuosity and contagious passion to all things banjo, with thousands of music fans and banjo students from all over the world in a music career that now spans over thirty-five years.

Bill's banjo artistry is best experienced in live performance and on his recordings Fine Times At Fletcher's House with Fletcher Bright (2013), In Good Company (2012), let's do something with Megan Lynch (2009), Bill Evans Plays Banjo (2001) and Native and Fine (1995). Bill successfully bridges traditional and contemporary sounds and playing techniques, creating a new music that is firmly within the bluegrass tradition but draws upon a broad knowledge of classical, jazz and world music, drawing upon his experiences as a graduate student in Music at the University of California, Berkeley and as the associate director of the International Bluegrass Music Museum.

Margo and John revel in warm-hearted vintage country duets from the likes of George and Melba, the Louvin Brothers and Merle Haggard, as well as delight in the reinvention of classic pop songs.

Raised on different shores of Puget Sound, Margo and John each fostered a love for duet harmony singing. John, a longtime member of the Bellingham-based Nooksack Valley Boys, has spent most of his life working on commercial fishing boats, which seems to have put a salty soulfulness in his voice. Margo, well-versed in both country and jazz, has serenaded couples on dance floors in Seattle and wooed audiences with her velvet voice. When their musical paths converged in a festival in the NW woods, the result was magic.
Their first album collaboration, The Sea and the Sky, released last Spring and charting on the FOLKDJ list, highlights Ruthie Dornfeld. Ruthie will be returning with them to Nancy's Farm for this concert to add her inimitable fiddle virtuosity.

Alaska fiddler and story teller Ken Waldman brings his wonderful music and stories for your enjoyment.
Ken Waldman primarily plays old-time music, which predates bluegrass. Historically, this is a string-band music linked to Appalachia, though, really, there are variants most everywhere in North America. Some of the tunes he plays are more than two centuries old, though he also has recorded over a hundred he's composed in the style.
What distinguishes Ken is that he uses this music in performance as backdrop as he shares original poems—poetry often about this music—and tells stories, most often about the music, or about Alaska. And while bluegrass may he considered flashier, old-time music may be considered more soulful, which doesn't preclude a high level of musicianship, or satisfaction in the listening.

Alec plays wonderful Celtic and Appalachian music in both Calwhammer and Fingerpick style guitar.

"Alec Stone Sweet is a guitar virtuoso. This record would be delightful on a late night, with the lights off, a dying fire in the fireplace, a bit of whiskey left in the glass. It would also serve to explain to the uninitiated just why we care so much about these old melodies, about just what a tune is really about." - The Old Time Herald
Vibrant original songs performed with rich vocals and masterful instrumentation, Cabin Fever NW has wide crossover appeal for fans of bluegrass, singer-songwriter, Americana, country, pop and gospel.
What began as an adventure by two best friends, Cabin Fever NW has grown into a powerful performing quintet including Dianne Bochsler (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Tara Caldwell (vocals, claw hammer banjo) of Bellingham, WA, Ed Johnson (vocals, lead guitar) of Menlo Park, CA, Cary Black (vocals, bass fiddle) of Sebastopol, CA, and Paul Elliott (fiddle) of Seattle, WA.

Music fans know Chris Webster and Nina Gerber as two of the most skilled and artful musical talents. Webster's voice is uniquely compelling while Gerber's guitar is beautiful and powerful. Together they're magic. With originals, tasteful covers-soulful ballads, jazzy tunes and sweet folk, a great show.
Nina Gerber:
Nina has a unique ability to completely free herself within an eclectic range of styles. Presented with folk, country, bluegrass, rock, or blues, she is able to fall into leads which have rare reverence for the true feeling of a song, always emphasizing taste over technical display. She seeks to express through her hands, rather than gain attention, and it is this integrity which makes her expressions worth intent listening.
Chris Webster:
With astonishing power and passion, her voice reaches magical heights, yet effortlessly turns on a dime to deliver gut wrenching torch songs and gentle ballads. Combining elegance and grace with a foot-shuffling manner, Webster has a purity and beauty about her that is seldom seen and never forgotten.
