Patty Griffin is a Grammy-Award winning artist who has achieved great acclaim for her songwriting as well as her powerful voice. Her first two albums, "Living With Ghosts" and "Flaming Red" are considered seminal albums in the singer-songwriter genre, while "Children Running Though" won Best Album and led to her being named Best Artist at the 2007 Americana Music Awards. She won the Grammy for "Downtown Church," her 2010 gospel album. Her songs have been covered by a myriad of artists including Emmylou Harris, The Dixie Chicks, Joan Baez and Bette Midler.

Very much in the traditions of American transcendental writer Ralph Waldo Emerson, and mystical poets like Rumi and Rainer Maria Rilke, Patty Griffin grounds her themes of love and mystery in the experience and rhythms of the everyday, the stuff of life. "Servant Of Love" takes on big ideas, but does so in the vernacular of folk tales, blues cants and jazz gestures. Griffin’s characteristic expressive vocals - equal measures passion and poignancy - and her potent songwriting blur the lines between the personal, the spiritual and the political. These songs move and persuade while they dive deep.


2017 was a busy year for Canadian singer-songwriter AHI (pronounced “eye”). Having released his first full-length album We Made It Through The Wreckage, produced by the CMA-winning Eric Masse, AHI has blended folk, soul, and rock, to create an entirely new indie-soul/alt-folk genre. He closed out 2017 with a stop at NPR’s famed Tiny Desk.  CLICK HERE to watch AHI perform “Ol’ Sweet Day,” “Alive Again,” and “Closer (From a Distance)”.
