DIANE CLUCK (http://dianecluck.info) is a singer-songwriter of intuitive folk music based in Charlottesville, Virginia. She employs singing as a healing, textural experience in which audiences may wander, ponder, or simply be. Her vocal style has been noted for its clipped, glottal beauty, and described by NPR as "an unlikely mix of Aaron Neville, the Baka people, and Joni Mitchell--unaffected yet unusual". She accompanies herself on various instruments including guitar, piano, harmonium, zither, and a copper pipe instrument she built by hand. She contributed to New York's burgeoning Antifolk scene in the early 2000s; since then singer-songwriters Laura Marling, Florence Welch (of Florence And The Machine), and Sharon Van Etten have cited Diane's work as influential.
Diane will be accompanied by world percussionist Brian Festa.

FOOTINGS (https://footings.bandcamp.com/) Footings is Eric Gagne, who was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, but grew up in Rindge, New Hampshire, and Elisabeth Fuschia, who has been playing viola since the age of 3 and has lived for years in Northampton, Massachusetts.
Since the bands inception, Footings have rightly drawn comparisons to both Songs: Ohia and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. But even fans of acts like Dinosaur Jr. and Andrew Bird will find themselves transfixed by Footings brilliant compositions.
Listening to Resolver, the latest offering from Footings, youd never know that the main creative force behind the distinctive rock outfit got his musical bearings playing in hardcore bands. Footings blend acoustic sounds with electronic elements and straddle that fine line between folk and indie rock. The band produces moody, stark, and downright haunting sounds, all punctuated by Gagne's wry lyricism.
