Ryan Harvey (on tour from Baltimore, MD)
Ryan is a Riot-Folk collective member and an organizer with the antiwar Civilian-Soldier Alliance. His songs blend music and activism. He is currently touring to promote his new album, Blowback, his tenth or eleventh CD (he’s not sure). Either way, his music has had an impact as part of many movements for radical change through the last decade.
Nomi is a songwriter from New Orleans currently living in San Francisco. “She has a voice and folk songs with an uncanny depth that can tear u apart, and knit you back together again.”
Snack Time (w/Adhamh Roland of Riot-Folk)
Sugar Hill (banjo, violin, and vocals) and Adhamh Roland (accordian, guitar, and vocals), like peanut butter and chocolate, bring you a harmonious and delicious treat in their vocal and musical ensemble, Snack Time (peanut allergies aside). With more than just tasteful outfits, Snack Time will give you something to chew on, whether it be a touch candy coating or a soft, tender filling.
