Whitherward and Korby Lenker

Former Nashville singer-songwriters Ashley Norton and Edward Williams tired of the trench warfare that typifies the music industry and opted to keep things simple — an acoustic duo with meaningful music. They formed the indie-folk duo Whitherward in 2010 and relocated to Denver a few years later. Troubadours in the truest sense, they jump into their Subaru and drive wherever the wind, or the next booking, takes them. Korby Lenker recorded his latest CD in an unusual fashion. With portable recording gear, he set out from Nashville for his native Idaho and recorded guitar and vocal tracks in places important to him — the edge of the Snake River Canyon, a cabin north of Sun Valley Idaho, his father’s mortuary, and a dozen other places. Then he spent months driving around the country recording friends in Seattle, Portland, LA, Austin, Madison, and Boston. The resulting album, Thousand Springs, was recorded in seven states and features almost thirty different artists from the folk world.

Peter Sprague Trio – TICKETS

Cleveland native Peter Sprague was raised in Colorado until his family moved to Del Mar, California in 1963. Inspired by his father’s love of jazz, he took up the guitar when he was twelve. He formed his first group The Minor Jazz Quartet while in high school. Following a year’s study at the Interlochen Arts Academy, Sprague studied privately and performed around the San Diego area until 1976 when he moved to Boston to study with notable musicians Pat Metheny, Madame Chaloff and Albin Czak (who taught Peter classical guitar). Returning to San Diego in 1978, he formed a ground breaking jazz group The Dance of the Universe Orchestra. At age 20 he was recording his own albums on the Concord Jazz and Xanadu labels. He has been a guest artist on many records and performed and toured with Chick Corea, Hubert Laws, Dianne Reeves, David Benoit, Sergio Mendes and others. On his debut with the Chick Corea band for a series of concerts at Disneyland, noted Los Angeles Times jazz critic, Leonard Feather, wrote “Peter Sprague is one of the emergent great guitarists.”

Tish Hinohosa and Noah Zacharin – TICKETS

Austin singer-songwriter Tish Hinojosa blends folk, country, Latino, and pop. She has an undeniable far-reaching appeal, garnering accolades such as a White House concert at the invitation of President and Mrs. Clinton and teaming up with artists such as Joan Baez, Booker T. Jones, Flaco Jimenez, Pete Seeger, and Dwight Yoakam. She has recorded albums for A&M, Warner Bros, and Rounder Records and has been a featured artist on Austin City Limits and Prairie Home Companion. Noah Zacharin was born in Montreal and resides in Toronto. He was given his first guitar at age 9, wrote his first song at 13, began performing at 14, and is happy to say that he still loves playing music. Zacharin’s recordings have garnered praise from fans and critics alike. His recently released 6th CD, “Waiting on Your Love”, continues his tradition of literate well-crafted songs.
