Ladies for Liberty

The Ladies for Liberty revive the great music of the 1940's and Word War II era in the style of the Andrews Sisters. Through their own rendition of vocals, costumes, hairstyles and the spirit of patriotism reminiscent of the 1940's, that period is remembered and celebrated by the Ladies of Liberty as “When America was at its finest.” The Ladies have performed for a number of national and international air shows, World War II reunions, dinner theaters, variety shows, hangar parties, aircraft museums military functions and Ceremonies, parades, television appearances, radio broadcasts, and any other events having a patriotic flavor. The Ladies for Liberty are very popular for their precision-timed, acappella rendition of the National Anthem that has become their trademark at open-air shows across the country.

Red Tail Ring

Red Tail Ring is the musical brainchild of two old-time-minded Michiganders – Michael Beauchamp and Laurel Premo. The collaboration blends the loving attention of revivalist fervor with the playful creativity of starting from scratch. Whether rendering a traditional tune or one of their many original compositions, the duo infuses each song with musical imagination, haunting harmonies and instrumental artistry. “We love pushing the boundaries of what a traditional song can be,” says Beauchamp. “It informs how we write our original songs. There’s a real energy exchange between the old and the new.”

The Bing Brothers featuring Jack Krack

For over 40 years, The Bing Brothers have played their hard-driving brand of string band music from Canada to Florida – from Spain to England, and from Australia, to Ireland and Scotland. Their sound has been formed in the West Virginia mountains, and they remain true to their roots. Yet The Bing Brothers are highly versatile, playing selections in old time and bluegrass, as well as traditional Irish songs and ragtime.

Jesse Milnes & Emily Miller

Jesse Milnes and Emily Miller perform country and old-time music, singing close harmony with Jesse’s unique finger-picked guitar style and a healthy dose of old-time fiddling.
