Ologunde celebrates the rich Afro-Brazilian culture of Salvador, Bahia through a diverse repertoire of music, dance and martial arts under the direction of master Afro-Brazilian percussionist Dendê Macêdo.
The Suitcase Junket
The Suitcase Junket is Matt Lorenz: artist, tinkerer, swamp yankee, one-man band. From Lorenz’ penchant for thrift and ingenuity comes original rock anthems, mountain ballads, blues manifestos, and dance-hall festivity. It is magnificent, rousing, image-driven songwriting, laid out on instruments built of broken bottles, thrift store forks, dried bones, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, a toy keyboard, salvaged instruments, and an overhead compartment worth of luggage.
The musical engine of CLEGHORN is renowned fiddler Dylan Cleghorn and his father, the legendary Texas guitarist John Cleghorn. CLEGHORN’s unique brand of Celtic Rock mixes their original songwriting with high energy fiddle and bagpipe tunes.
