Over the past decade, Tatiana Hargreaves has been on the forefront of an up and coming generation of old time, bluegrass and new acoustic musicians. From placing first at the Clifftop Appalachian Fiddle Contest, to her bluegrass fiddling on Laurie Lewis’ GRAMMY-nominated album The Hazel And Alice Sessions, Hargreaves shows a musical fluency that flows between old time and bluegrass worlds with ease. She has toured with musicians such as Dave Rawlings, Gillian Welch, Laurie Lewis, Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky and Jake Blount. She currently tours with banjo extraordinaire Allison de Groot and teaches bluegrass fiddle at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

Every time Sadie Gustafson-Zook carves a linoleum block, sews a pencil case out of scraps, or admires the way the ink in her Pilot G-2 glides over her journal, she thinks, “I should be doing this all the time.” The act of creating something tangible is the air Sadie breathes. Her songwriting is the same- weaving an internal dialogue, the stories she tells herself, warm melodies and clever chords into something real, something she can physically feel with her hands and her throat. And chances are that you’ll be able to feel them too. Sadie is widely recognized for her songwriting, winning the 2022 Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition, the 2022 Newsong + LEAF Songwriting Contest, as well placing in the top two at the 2022 Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Songwriter Showcase. She’s been featured on Folk Alley and the Basic Folk Podcast and has performed at renowned festivals and venues including Kerrville Folk Festival, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, Walnut Valley Festival, and Club Passim, among others.
