    Willow Tree Carolers

    Folk Rock

    Cincinnati’s Willow Tree Carolers are a wandering bunch of young folkies with the spirit of Leadbelly, Pete Seeger and Odetta in their hearts; their reinterpretations of the road-worn American Folk songbook, complemented with their own original tales of hitting life’s highway make-it-or-bust style has won them plenty of applause from audiences as divergent as Chicago biker gangs, celebratory hometown dive bar crowds, and plenty of good folks gathered at various public parks and street festivals during the daylight hours. You name it, and they’ve strummed, plucked and played to please just about anyone’s ears.

    Legend has it, the Carolers began as a sort-of family band, sometime around 2014. Brothers Josh (banjo) and David Sparks (drums) soon joined ranks with burgeoning singer/songwriter Brandon Martin (guitar) whom is also their cousin. After a short while they hitched up with their buddy Dawn Weast, who turned in her violin for a wicked fiddle: on stage, she gives the boys a run for their money that you have to see to believe.

    It wasn’t long before the Cincinnati-based group became regulars at every spot worth playing - and plenty that weren’t - around town and answered calls to hit the road. They’re undeniably one of the Ohio River Valley’s most lauded Folk acts, nominated for a 2016 Cincinnati Entertainment Award in that very category, and veterans of multiple fests, including the Whispering Beard Folk Fest, where they shared the stage with the likes of The Tillers, Possessed by Paul James, the Bottle Rockets and many more.

    Cookin' Hearts

    Folk

    Cookin' Hearts is an alternative folk band based in Cincinnati, OH. The band began in 2010 as a collaboration between song-writers Joe Hart and Alex Cook. The two worked as acoustic duo for several years before teaming up with Ali Reynolds and Abigail Haidle in 2013.

    As a quartet, the group has reinvented itself almost entirely. While Hart remains the sole guitarist of the group, Cook traded in his bass for banjo, shifting the instrumentation to include Reynolds on upright bass. With the addition of Haidle's celtic and classically influenced flute stylings, the group has rounded out their instrumentation in a unique way that lends itself to fascinating new compositions.

    Along with the new instrumentation, the ensemble also turned their focus towards creating powerful 4-part vocal harmonies that have been described as being haunting and melancholy, vibrant and soulful. This element has added an exciting and invigorating new dynamic to the band's sound.

    Since the summer of 2013, Cookin' Hearts has been performing around the Cincinnati area in a wide variety of settings and music venues, and has steadily gained a dedicated following.
