●ISASA - (born to Uruguayan parents in Madrid, Spain, 1977) is a guitarist and composer based in Madrid. He has been an active member of the city’s underground music scene since the early 90’s. He has performed throughout Spain, EU, USA and UK as a solo artist, as well as a member of the Spanish band A Room with a View (1997-2003). Strongly inspired by the American Primitive guitarists – John Fahey, Glenn Jones and Jack Rose – Isasa plays acoustic guitar and weissenborn in an organic, serene and meditative style. His music is a relaxed and unhurried experience for the listener. It projects a spiritual and twilight beauty. His third album “Insilio” was released on April 5th, 2019 via La Castanya. Isasa has shared bills with performers including Glenn Jones, Daniel Bachman, Geoff Farina, Steve Gunn, Will Johnson (Centromatic), Sir Richard Bishop, Micah Blue Smaldone, Marisa Anderson, Laura Baird, House and Land and Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra.

Magic Tuber Stringband is an experimental old-time-related duo from Durham, NC comprised of Courtney Werner on fiddle and Evan Morgan on guitar and banjo. The duo forges links between the dialects of traditional tunes and freak-folk improvisations. MTSB will release their debut record "Wayward Airs for Earthbound Vagrants" in July 2019 on Houston-based label Blue Hole Recordings. The record swings back and forth across the boundaries between traditional and exploratory song forms, often within the space of a song. Past collaborations between Werner and Morgan include the experimental short film LOST CHILD REEL in which Werner appears playing the Stripling Brothers' "Lost Child" and the the 16mm multi-projector performance PERFORMANCE FOR FIDDLE AND PROJECTORS which imagines a new form of musicological documentary rooted in live performance. Morgan's debut solo guitar record "Between the World and Small Things" was released on Blue Hole in 2018. Along with his solo work, Morgan has also performed with the old-time group The Fossil Lickers and also works within the world of experimental film. Werner has worked around the country and the world in the fields of wildlife rehabilitation and conservation.
