OUR 2020 BIGFORK VILLAGE MARKET BANDS!
Our 2020 Bands
Somewhere between the concrete jungle of New York City and the dirt road expanse of the West, resides the “American Roots” music of Bo DePeña. With a blended sound of blues, country, folk, and hints of rock ‘n roll, the singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist (guitar, harmonica) has traveled the country as a lone wolf troubadour. Through collected trinkets of musical influences, Bo’s music taps into many vantage points of the American story, and does so gracefully

Hardwood Heart was born out of compulsion – a desire for guitarist Josh Clinger and mandolin player Jed Nussbaum to keep as musically active and exploratory as possible. What started as two songwriters swapping tunes in backyards and living rooms turned into an impressive catalog of original material and covers, woven together with creative improvisation and vocal harmonies. Together the pair (along with upright bassist Troy Morgan whenever the 4-string slinger is available) forged a sound rooted in bluegrass but stretching into jazz, folk, blues and rock and roll.
