uncleshake

Veteran's Memorial Park Main Street, Stamford, New York

uncleshake is an acoustic eclectic trio that make themselves happy by playing a style of music they like to call Vaudeville Grunge. Although they refer to their music as non-traditional, their sound is rooted in early century ragtime and the jazz and blues coming out of the era.  Some of their favorite influences include the marvelous Mr. Tom Waits, the uncanny Devil Makes Three and the almighty Squirrel Nut Zippers.  They have released two collections so far and are busy working on a third. In the six years they have been playing, uncleshake has had a varied line up.  Several…

Chinobay

Roxbury Arts Center 5025 Vega Mountain Road, Roxbury, NY

Chinobay is a Ugandan musician, educator and creative arts producer whose work has been described as “some of the most exquisite music coming out of Africa today.” Since his youth, he has captivated audiences with world-roots rhythms and melodies that emanate from the diversity of the many traditional instruments he customized to develop his unique sound.  The diverse textures of Chinobay’s music make it soothing, pulsing, meditative, invigorating, and intimate —much of it a mix of original and traditional with global influences—but the sounds are uniquely his.

Adeem the Artist

Roxbury Arts Center 5025 Vega Mountain Road, Roxbury, NY

A seventh-generation Carolinian, a makeshift poet, singer-songwriter, storyteller, and blue-collar artist, Adeem Maria began toiling at their instrument in 2002 and used songwriting as a vehicle to process culture shock, their faith, and later their journey through apostasy.  Blending a homegrown affection for Country Music with the emotional ballyhoo of alternative folk in the early aughts, they have created a unique brand of Americana that pays homage to John Prine and John Darnielle (of The Mountain Goats) in equal parts.  On Cast-Iron Pansexual, they weave a rich tapestry of words with humor and wit; exploring identity across coalescing subcultures. Traveling to Carolina…
