India Cain is a singer-songwriter with a strong early classical background in piano, organ, cello and voice with over 50 years experience on the guitar.  Her strong musical influences include Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Linda Ronstadt, Judy Collins, Emmylou Harris, Gordon Lightfoot, Leonard Cohen, Jackson Browne, Ian & Sylvia, Kate Wolf, Nanci Griffith and Iris Dement.

Keith Allen is a self-taught banjo picker and songwriter with a strong bluegrass and traditional music influence.  He was swept up in the folk revival of the 60’s and 70’s and rapidly migrated toward the bluegrass end of the folk spectrum.  Influenced by the genius of Bill Monroe, Keith counts Pete Seeger, Earl Scruggs, Bill Keith and Alan Munde as the strongest influences on his self-taught playing style.

F. Vattel Cherry (double bass) was born in Chicago, grew up in Maryland, but calls himself a New Yorker.  He says that’s where he “came of age.”  He moved to New York in 1986 to attend the Manhattan School of Music.  It was in New York, after graduating, that Cherry “cut his teeth” with the Charles Gayle Trio, Charli, Persip’s Superband, David Pleasant’s  RiddimAthon! and Cecil Taylor’s PTHONGOS.

We are excited to hear all original music from these artists!
