Sunday 7/22 6:00 PM LAKOU MIZIK
Lakou Mizik is a multigenerational collective of Haitian musicians formed in the aftermath of the devastating 2010 earthquake. The group includes elder legends and rising young talents, united in a mission to honor the healing spirit of their collective culture and communicate a message of pride, strength and hope to their countrymen and the world.
Music is at the core of Haiti’s sense of identity, and musicians have always played an important role in society, both in documenting the country’s history and helping to shape its path forward. Lakou Mizik is keeping this tradition alive, narrating the world through music made in neighborhoods, villages and post-earthquake camps. They draw from Haiti’s deep well of creative strength to shine a celebratory light on this tragically misrepresented country.
Spirit Family Reunion began singing together on the street corners of New York City in 2009. Since that time they have travelled the highways of America delivering raw, high energy, honest music. They have shared the stage with musical heroes such as Pete Seeger and Levon Helm, and have given notable performances at festivals including Stage Coach, Austin City Limits, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and the legendary Newport Folk Festival three times. Their shows always transcend into unforgettable foot-stomping, open door gospel hoe-downs.
The Horse-Eyed Men are Noah and Dylan Harley, two brothers who play original disgruntled Americana and country. Raised by musical humans in a former candy store outside of Providence R.I., their music mixes spaghetti-western themes with cabaret, ragtime, and post-partum punk.
Sam Doores (of the Deslondes and Hurray for the Riff Raff) is a New Orleans based musician and friend of both Spirit Family Reunion and The Horse Eyed Men. We are thrilled to welcome this heroic trifecta of American Music to Earth Sky Time!
Sunday 9/2 5:00 PM BILLY WYLDER'S Moonshine Music Festival
From the front-lines at Standing Rock to the archaic streets of Jerusalem, the Sahel Desert to Carnegie Hall, music has been the source of strength for Billy Wylder. The band features Avi Salloway(Bombino/Hey Mama/Avi & Celia) joined by an inspired cast of singular artists. The music weaves together American folk and rock with sensibilities from the Sahara Desert: think Andrew Bird meets Ali Farka Toure, Pete Seeger and Talking Heads. Mother Earth is at its center, surrounded by stories of love, conflict, change and dreams.
