Wes Urbanik & The Mountain Folk

This all-original trio comes out of the Billings, MT area, playing mountain folk music: folk roots written about traveling on the metaphorical mountains of life. This genre is full of hard stops, absolute dynamics, and mauling measures of lyrical flow. Urbaniak has been a songwriter and musician for a bucket of years. Together with the harmonies of Mat Regele (upright bass) and A.J. Sheble (ukulele), Urbaniak’s guitar and vocal pulls the audience through a story; at times along the lyrics of a life lived and lessons learned, other times with the intricate and speedy guitar playing, and definitely during the times that the beat picks up to a bluegrass and rollicking rise.
 
Along with the signature musical style, another aspect of the band belongs with the instruments that the guys play. They were designed and built by Urbaniak - a luthier when he is not performing. His instruments are built on the premise of reusing and conserving wood, and making the imperfect, perfect. Sources of wood come from old schoolhouses, mills, pianos, locally-felled trees that people donate, and scrap pieces set aside at wood stores. They highlight the beautiful flaws of knots and irregular growth. Playing the same notes as traditional instruments, they wear fantastically different clothes and allude to having a deeper sense of spirit.
 
April 2020 marks the release of Urbaniak's ninth album, The Long Walk. 

Kara Hesse

Native to the Wichita plains and raised in Boulder, CO, Kara's midwestern roots seep through her sultry voice and songwriting with an eclectic blend of soul and rock 'n roll. Her songs have been placed on television shows including CBS Scorpion and DirecTV’s You Me Her. She has opened for such acts as B.B. King, Al Green, Buddy Guy, Steve Miller Band and Howie Day. She has self-released two albums, Better By Morning (2014) & Sojourner (2018).
