SAW (Songwriters’ Association of Washington) is thrilled to bring together the best local talent to present a very special fundraising concert to benefit the Takoma Park Folk Festival (TPFF, tpff.org). This free annual festival (on Sunday, September 8 this year) features traditional and trending folk arts, musicians, crafters, kids’ activities and more. Help us support this fabulous community tradition and come hear some of the area’s most talented performers.

Our featured performers for the July 20th event:

Fresh from just winning the Mid Atlantic Bluegrass Competition, The Fly Birds are an alternative bluegrass trio comprised of sisters Elizabeth Baker and Mary Dunlap, and Sarah Twigg. Their unique vocals as well as original style of folk music is topped off with tasteful songwriting skills and a charming stage presence to create a memorable and honest sound.

Conor & The Wild Hunt is a Progressive Indie Folk band intent on inspiring positive change in a troubled world. With artful and driving instrumentation, impassioned duets, blooming three part harmonies, and a compelling stage presence, Conor & The Wild Hunt animates soulful original songs with modern takes on Americana traditions.

Recently featured in Acoustic Guitar magazine, Yasmin Williams is an acoustic fingerstyle guitarist with an unorthodox, modern style of playing. Her music has been commonly described as refreshing, relaxing, and unique and has been called some of the most imaginative guitar music out today.

Live from the Lawn: Joe Falero Band @ Strathmore, Gudelsky Gazebo
Jul 24 @ 7:00 pm

Puerto Rico-born percussionist, DJ, and frontman Joe Falero has been playing music his entire life. He is a master of a wide range of Latin genres, deftly leading his band through salsa, mambo, cumbia, merengue, and more. From the suave and seductive to the tropical and upbeat, Falero knows that the Latin flavor is rich and eclectic. He formed the Joe Falero Band in 2010, and he’s taken home three “Stuck on Salsa Awards” as a bandleader. Expect a set of recognizable Latin hits (often performed in surprising new ways) mixed with Falero-penned originals that will keep you dancing all night long.

Live from the Lawn: Miss Tess & The Talkbacks @ Strathmore, Gudelsky Gazebo

Miss Tess has a sultry, jazzy sound that’s hard to pin down. Her music doesn’t really fit in any one box—except maybe a jukebox from a retro diner. She’s got a cool, old school vibe that is rootsy and eclectic and it’s driving critics wild. Pop Matters raved that Miss Tess “deftly traverses the borderlines between early Tom Waits-esque lounge ballads, old-timey country, a dollop of folk-rock and a sprinkle of catchy jazz.” Tess got her start in Maryland, the daughter of swing band musicians, and we are thrilled to welcome her home.

Live from the Lawn: The Josanne Francis Septet @ Strathmore, Gudelsky Gazebo

The steelpan calls to mind salty sea breezes, sand, and sun, but under Josanne Francis’ skilled hand, it can do so much more. This celebrated musician’s “wand-like” touch conjures traditional calypso music mixed with funk, rock, and classical melodies. It’s steelpan like you’ve never heard it before!
Born and raised in the twin-island Republic of Trinidad & Tobago, Francis is an internationally known steelpan performer and music educator. Francis has performed on such prestigious stages as Carnegie Hall and the San Juan Conservatory of Music and serves as the Artistic Director of the Cultural Academy for Excellence. She’s also an alumni of Strathmore’s Artist in Residence program, and we’re proud to welcome her back!
