Global Harmony Playshop - Leah & Chloe of Rising Appalachia
Playshop Details:
Leah and Chloe’s vocal playshop will explore sound vibration and body movement as tools for creative expression and self-awareness. The space is created to help each participant to embody the physical art of making music through many different avenues of the voice . This workshop utilizes the expressions of the body through movement and music using a variety of techniques including vocal contact improv. creative sound improvisations, group harmonics, singing techniques and free form movement drawing upon yoga, modern dance, martial arts, physical theater, community chorus, and more.

Biography:

Leah and Chloe grew up in urban Atlanta as the city’s hip hop scene began to flourish. They absorbed those rhythms through the music they heard at school, then traveled with their family to fiddle camps all across the Southeast on the weekends. The young girls weren’t all that interested in the old-time playing, but their parents were incredibly devout in their study and practice of Appalachian music.

After high school, Leah decided to postpone college and travel internationally. Feeling homesick while living in Southern Mexico, she looked for a connection to her past and taught herself how to play banjo. “I realized that I wanted something from home that I could share, something that would tell people a bit more of the story of where I came from, other than the news,” she recalls.

A few years later, when Chloe came to visit her abroad, Leah offered some clawhammer banjo lessons. They didn’t necessarily realize it at the time but a musical partnership had been established. Upon their return to the United States, they recorded an album, which they considered an art project, to sell whenever they sang at farmer’s markets. They printed 500 copies, figuring that would last them a lifetime. However, when a local college professor heard them singing at a Christmas party, he booked them as part of a Celtic holiday concert in Atlanta. After two performances, every CD had been sold.

Surprised and overwhelmed, they mulled over a career as full-time musicians, then realized that performing could be just one component of a greater overall vision – one that includes advocating for social justice, racial justice, environmental justice, and Indigenous rights.

“We’re able to filter in so many of our passions into this project,” Chloe says. “We do a lot of activism work. We do a lot of outreach. Leah is a visual artist and she can funnel her visual eye into the project. I love to write, so that comes in. There’s a big container and canvas for our life’s work here. Music is part of it, but there are a lot of other creative vehicles that are driving Rising Appalachia.”

Intro to Non-Violent Direct Action: Defense Against the Dark Arts 101 - Razz Gormley
From Gandhi's salt marches in India, to occupying lunch counters in the American South, to indigenous led movements like Standing Rock; Non-Violent Direct Action has long been a critical tool for creating positive change in our world. NVDA is a way for people build strength and exercise our collective will, outside of existing power structures and systems. This workshop will explore the basic concepts of non-violent civil resistance & civil disobedience campaigns, and provide participants with a baseline of practical skills to safely and effectively participate.
Razz Gormley is a committed and passionate climate and social justice activist. He got his start in 2012 co-founding Frack Free Colorado and working to pass local ballot initiatives that hoped to defend the Front Range of Colorado from runaway Oil & Gas development and keep climate killing fossil fuels in the ground. The supreme court's decision to unconstitutionally overturn citizen led ballot measures caused him to turn his eye toward non-violent direct action as a necessary tool, so then began training with Greenpeace USA in order to bring these critical skills back to the local movement. Razz has served on boards for a number of local organizations and worked to pass statewide ballot initiatives, but may be best known for his role as a climber in the Shell No PDX action. At a watershed moment in the fight against climate crisis, he and 12 others and their support team (allegedly) rappelled from the St. John’s Bridge in Portland, Oregon and remained suspended for two days in an attempt to block Shell’s Ice-Breaker from reaching a drill site in the pristine Chukchi Sea--an action which called global attention to the threat of Arctic drilling and led to the cancellation of all of the area’s Oil & Gas leases. The area remains protected to this day and Razz continues to train & support frontline and marginalized communities across the state with a focus on: self-empowerment, non-violent community defense, and grassroots movement building.

TBA... We can't wait to share this secret addition to the festival this year!

John Craigie is renowned for his eloquent Americana style, engaging live shows, and off-the-cuff clever observations. Craigie carries on the legacy of classic singer-songwriters, while blazing a trail of his own. When Craigie plays, it’s one of those special shows that can make you laugh and cry in the same song. It’s a musical journey that can’t be denied.

Jay Cobb Anderson 5 years ago, with only a $100 to his name and no place to stay, packed his bags, grabbed his guitars and left the small pond of Idaho for the waters of Portland, Oregon. It was here that he became a founding member of the groups Fruition, the Bellboys and Rose City Thorns (formerly known as the Villains). These groups would go on to pack local venues, successfully tour west of the Mississippi, and release fan adored albums. As a prominent songwriter for all three bands, Anderson has woven his musical stylings from the “along the riverbed” folk tunes to the heartland Americana ballads to the loud, grimy rock and roll ragers.

Sound Rise Alchemy - Prasad Katz
What’s a Sound Journey? A Sound Journey is similar to a guided meditation. Participants often lay down & are not required “to do” anything; simply relax & receive the music. It provides an excellent therapy for stress related issues, depression, fatigue, anger & hostility, feelings of fear, separation and loneliness, along with many other conditions related to the lack of balance & harmony in the body. The resonating sounds of the sacred instruments induce theta brain waves which promote a spontaneous state of meditation and relaxation. Listeners often experience a sense of connectedness and peace as the sacred sound of the gong offers listeners access to parts of the mind that are usually closed, resulting in a sense of expanded awareness and higher consciousness. Sound Healing is often used to rebalance, tone and bring harmony to the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies.

Beyond the Binary: The Future of Gender – Sam Bullington (Air Temple)
As a society, we are outgrowing binary gender and have become tired of being locked in the kind of polarization that binary thinking inevitably brings. Youth are defecting from the gender binary in droves because they intuitively understand that organizing gender in an oppositional binary limits everyone, regardless of where you fall on the gender spectrum. This workshop will explore the ways that what we’ve been taught by our society about how gender has created suffering for all of us. How can we better understand how we all are suffering in specific and different ways—women, men, and those who fall outside that framework, how can we heal and help each other heal, and how can we come together to learn new ways of being together that can help us grow into our highest potential individually and together? This workshop is led by a non-binary transgender person.

Authentic Movement - Maria Flegas
Authentic movement is a contemplative practice of moving from a place of impulse~ most often done with the eyes closed, and with a witness. This form is free from agenda or interruption ~ allowing a deep unsequencing and revealing of the inner animal and mystery. It can offer liberation and sharing of the stories lying below the surface~ yielding to the language of the soft tissues. This form provides a place of deep and delicious satisfaction through inner contact and integration. By engaging what Carl Jung called "the active imagination" you may encounter image, sensation, memory, insight or an awakened dream state. Come dive in! Trust your impulses, be held in an unconditional space, and allow the magic in the environment to infuse you too.

Tenth Mountain Division
“This bands ruminating respect for music of the past, and deep dedication towards the creative crafting of a new sound, sets Tenth Mountain Division apart in the Colorado music scene. Tenth Mountain Division speaks the language of Colorado, the language of the mountains.” (Noah Stein – CU Independent) Originating from Boulder, CO, founders Winston Heuga (Mandolin) and MJ Ouimette (Electric/Acoustic Guitar) originally sought to create an acoustic bluegrass outfit. After a few years dedicated to playing bluegrass, the duo transitioned to an electrified, rock’n’roll sound. Through out its preliminary years finding their roots in college and playing with an array of different line-ups, the band finally found their permanent line up in May of 2017 with the addition of bassist and vocalist Andrew Cooney. Drummer Tyler Gwynn and the ever-talented keyboard player Campbell Thomas form the quintet that creates a diverse soundscape combining soaring electric guitar leads and jabbing keys while retaining its roots in bluegrass with Heuga’s incomparable mandolin style. The rhythmic interplay of Cooney’s driving bass fused with Gwynn’s incendiary drumming round out the unique sounding band that is truly a style of its own; what the band refers to as “Ski Rock”. Tenth Mountain Division has evolved greatly since its inception but retains its roots in the American musical styles of rock, Americana, bluegrass, prog and the crossroads between them all. Since TMD’s first national tour upon earning a slot at the 2016 Summer Camp Music Festival with headlining acts like Tom Petty’s Mud Crutch, Moe, and Umphrey’s Mcgee, the band has embarked all across this country playing esteemed venues like Boulder’s Fox Theater, Denver’s Gothic Theatre, Austin’s The Parish, Nashville’s Acme Feed & Seed, Baltimore’s 8X10, and many more; The band has played festivals including Summer Camp, Beanstalk, Head for the Hills, Pardee Palooza and after parties for the likes of Dead & Company, Twiddle, STS9, Moon Taxi, and Marcus King Band. TMD has shared the stage with artist such as Nicki Bluhm, Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band/ Bela Fleck), Bill Payne (Little Feet), Jeff Austin ( Yonder Mountain String Band), Jeremy Garret ( Infamous String Dusters), Andy Thorn and Alwyn Robinson (Leftover Salmon), Jon Stickley Trio, and contemporaries such as The Magic Beans and Spafford. This is only the beginning, stay tuned for all thats to come!

Permaculture in Principle and Practice: Exploring Resilient Patterns in Northern Colorado and the Community of Sunrise Ranch - Stone Hunter, Avery Ellis and Patrick Padden
This two-part workshop will introduce the participants to the core values and principles of permaculture, the practice of permaculture design techniques, and show examples of permaculture based installations that exist within the community of Sunrise Ranch during a walking tour. Join us during the first workshop to become familiar with the concepts within permaculture and learn how this design framework is being used to develop edible landscapes, soil restoration as well as resilient ecological, economic and social patterns. We will look at shifting and mobilizing community resources with reference to Permaculture Action Days, and emphasize ways participants can make meaningful change in their environment and communities. During the second day we will guide workshop participants over to the Sunrise Ranch community farm to see functioning examples of storm water management, holistic grazing, composting toilets, natural and straw bale construction, and more. During this guided tour we will hear from members of the Sunrise Ranch community who manage their greenhouses, gardens, animals, and construction. A history of the organic farming practiced in the community will contextualize solutions and challenges that currently exist and are yet to arise.
Stone Hunter is a Biodynamic farming practitioner and former consultant at Sustainable Settings Ranch in Carbondale, Colorado. Born and raised at Sunrise Ranch, Stone attended River Song Waldorf School and later graduated from the International Baccalaureate program in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Currently he lives in Paonia, Colorado and is working with Skyhawk Construction building straw-bale, passive solar homes while still teaching and participating within the Permaculture and Biodynamic movements. Avery Ellis is an Ecological Designer with a whole systems approach to life. Avery was raised in New Jersey, the Garden state, by a master gardener. He has always felt a kinship with nature and the natural processes.

Liver Down River
From the high mountain river-valley of Durango Colorado comes a five piece band of musicians called Liver Down The River. The group has their roots in countless river floats, campfires, late night picking, and Colorado living. Since its creation in 2012, the band has strived to have nothing but a good time. The music is a blend of original and improvisational compositions that take the listener on a journey. Each member brings their own inspirations and elements to the sound. From the high peaks of bluegrass, the deepest pockets of the funk, and the outer reaches of space, a unique genre of music is created. Inspiration comes from the band’s collective adventures, love of nature, the following of the soul, and the drive to keep on moving on. On April 8th 2016, the band released their first full length album, Life You Love. In the summer of 2018, they released their first live album, “Where’s Your Liver Vol. 1”, and Vol. 2 is due in 2019. A full length studio album is in the works too, and will feature music from some of the new members in the band. On these tracks, Liver Down the River strives to capture the immense energy felt during the live shows, and to showcase each musician’s skills. Attempting to reflect the beautiful, yet powerful and expansive essence of the Colorado country, the inspiration comes truly… from living the life you love.

John Craigie
Renowned for his eloquent Americana style, engaging live shows, and off-the-cuff clever observations, John Craigie carries on the legacy of classic singer-songwriters, while blazing a trail of his own. Recently, that trail twisted and turned into new territory for the Portland, OR performer who The Stranger appropriately dubbed, “the lovechild of John Prine and Mitch Hedberg.” His music speaks loud to both audiences and fellow artists. Todd Snider notably hand-delivered a gift on-stage, and Chuck Norris has sent fan mail. His fifth full-length album, No Rain, No Rose boasted two collaborations with Gregory Alan Isakov, namely “I Am California” and “Highway Blood.” Both quickly cracked One Million Spotify streams and counting, as his knack for a captivating narrative and rustic aural palettes powered the 13-track offering together. “It’s about transparency,” he explains. “The storytelling enables listeners to relate. Really good music doesn’t make you feel good; it makes you feel like you’re not alone.” As No Rain, No Rose landed, he caught the attention of none other than Jack Johnson. Through a serendipitous series of events, Craigie’s 2016 live effort Capricorn in Retrograde… Just Kidding… Live in Portland landed in Johnson’s car stereo during a California coastal road trip. Shortly after, Jack reached out and Craigie soon found himself onstage for 12 shows during Johnson’s 2017 summer tour including performances at The Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California and The Gorge in Washington state. Along the way, he earned acclaim from SF Weekly, Seattle Times, AXS, and more. Festival appearances also include Oregon Country Fair, Kate Wolf Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Burning Man, and many others. When Craigie plays, it’s one of those special shows that can make you laugh and cry in the same song. It’s a musical journey that can’t be denied.

From label releases with Monstercat, Cloudkid, and Lowly Palace, to i ndependent releases “O.D.”, “Middle Man”, and “SAGA-I”, 2018 has proven to be a busy year for MEMBA. MEMBA has also used 2018 to dive even deeper into their craft, taking their release “SAGA-I” and transforming it into a multi-sensory experience. Based a fictional planet, MEMBA coupled each track of the EP with relics from the planet that would allow the listener to taste, smell, feel, and see the music.

Beats Antique
You can’t know Beats Antique until you’ve been a part of it’s journey, and experienced the act as an entity with a life of its own. A stage show that demands more music; music that needs costumes, ships and masks and shadow dances; an audience that comes for art, and takes away stories to spark their imagination. Some music evolved organically from the decades of experience Tommy, David, and Zoe bring to the project. Other pieces were written for the show. In deeply vulnerable interplay, every song is woven into a tapestry of danced and drummed story. Commitment to the full performance art form is how Beats Antique fuses musical worlds, pulling on global sounds for experiments on the fringes of cinematic cabaret, informed by electronic mash-ups and inspirations who have joined them on the journey such as Les Claypool, Bassnectar, Alam Khan, The Glitch Mob, and Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Beats Antique is lifted in each step by loyal fans who are included in their definition of chosen family. Whether they’ve been music producers or appreciators, acrobats, illustrators, or students of Zoe’s, the multigenerational, welcoming faces in the crowd are the fire that keeps Beats Antique warm, and ready to explore new depths for the sake of these many muses. They aim for a show anyone can enjoy, a circus that feeds the spirit.

Few bands stick around for thirty years. Even fewer bands leave a legacy during that time that marks them as a truly special, once-in-lifetime type band. And no band has done all that and had as much fun as Leftover Salmon. Since their earliest days as a forward thinking, progressive bluegrass band who had the guts to add drums to the mix and who was unafraid to stir in any number of highly combustible styles into their ever evolving sound, to their role as a pioneer of the modern jamband scene, to their current status as elder-statesmen of the scene who cast a huge influential shadow over every festival they play, Leftover Salmon has been a crucial link in keeping alive the traditional music of the past while at the same time pushing that sound forward with their own weirdly, unique style.

Marvel Years
Cory Wythe, the producer and guitarist better known as Marvel Years, has found a welcome place for himself within the increasingly popular glitch-hop / electro-soul dance music scene. In just a short period of time, his progression has become outright impossible to ignore. Much more than your average DJ/producer, Marvel Years incorporates electric guitar in his live performances. His approach to blending electronic beats and shredding soulful guitar on his original tracks and remixes creates a sound that is a unique hybrid of EDM combing glitch, retro-funk, classic rock, soul, jazz and hip-hop. “Classic rock has been a huge influence on me,” Wythe explains. “I love breathing new life into those older songs. I think that’s a good medium for bringing new listeners into my music because they can relate to that stuff. I improvise (on live guitar) over a lot of my stuff.” “If Vermont-based artist Marvel Years, AKA Cory Wythe, isn’t on your list of artists to watch yet, now is definitely the time to add him to it. The producer and live guitarist tastefully blends elements of classic rock, electronic, funk, jazz and more into soulful creations that exude energy with each release.” – ThisSongIsSick.com “Cory Wythe does not have a ceiling when it comes to the art of remixing, as he is known for taking natural classics and turning them into burning supernovae that no human can fight the urge to let go and dance their asses off.” – The Untz

Tone Ranger
Tone Ranger (AKA Alex Simon) makes immersive dance music that embodies the magnetic and supernatural beauty of the American Southwest. Blending deep house rhythms with ethereal instrumentation (lap steel, harmonica, whistling, voice), he has earned a reputation as one of the region’s most original and sought-after live electronic acts. Performances have often been described as “heart-opening,” seamlessly moving from ecstatic peaks to grounding sonic valleys. In August 2018, he released his debut EP with Jumpsuit Records, and has since opened for international acts like Quantic and Dirtwire. On the Horizon, a wild and dynamic batch of new songs, will be available to listen to in March of 2019. Simon is inspired primarily by the landscape of the American West and the stories embedded in it. Though stunningly beautiful on the surface, he understands that underneath, there is deep division and a cry amongst so many of us for healing. There is a need for truth in a country where our history is largely myth and our modern social fabric is torn by lies and deceit. Crafted by exposure to the elements, an enduring sense of wonder, and that connection you can only find on the dance floor, the music of Tone Ranger exists to reignite that fire within us so that we can see each other for the radiant beings we are.

Beautiful Trouble: Nonviolent Direct Action Playshop - Rae Abileah
Nonviolent direct action is when ordinary people ignore the No Trespassing sign and intervene directly on the stage of history. National liberation struggles, civil rights movements, labor unions, feminists, LGBTQ activists, environmentalists, and a host of other righteous folks have used creative direct action in order to win their demands for social justice. In this workshop we dig into what makes people power effective, including core principles, tools and theories such as action logic, decision dilemmas, and points of intervention... all by playing with a new activist card deck from Beautiful Trouble! Then we put the creative in creative direct action by workshoping action ideas together and learning a host of outside-the-box tactics from flash mobs to pre- figurative interventions. Get better equipped for the challenges and exhilaration of creative action in your own campaigns.

Sol~Aum: Songs of Light Sound Bath – Kristin Hoffmann
Meditation Details:
Start your day with a sacred transcendent experience of pure light and sonic vibration. Join sound-healer and ethereal vocalist, Kristin Hoffmann, for a morning Sol~Aum™, Songs of Light Sound Bath in the dome. As she plays instruments around you and entrances you with her other-worldly vocals, let go of stress and feel mind, body and Soul rejuvenation.

Many participants experience an array of deep emotions and visions during a Sol~Aum™ Sound Bath, such as: feelings of profound joy, cleansing tears, a sense of inner transformation and creative awakening.

Biography:

Starting at the age of 4, ethereal renaissance songstress, and Juilliard trained multi-instrumentalist, Kristin Hoffmann began building a prolific career in music. She studied opera with acclaimed teachers Lorraine Nubar and Zehava Gal and composition with Rob Mathes and Behzad Ranjbaran. With a particular interest in French art songs, Kristin spent a summer honing the craft at Académie Internationale d’été de Nice. In addition to stints at major record labels, Capitol and Interscope Records, and song placements on hit TV shows like Dawson’s Creek and Palmetto Pointe, she has shared stages with The Wallflowers, Feist, Brandi Carlile, Richie Havens and many other musical luminaries. With a strong sense of artistic altruism, she is most passionate about projects that explore music’s healing power and allow listeners to tap into their higher potentials.

Having studied with French Sound Healing pioneer Fabian Maman, Hoffmann not only made music to accompany acupuncture sessions but also composed 170 songs for health-challenged children as a writer/producer at non-profit organization Songs of Love. A spokesperson for ocean conservation, she has performed her Song for the Ocean at environmental awareness conventions and concerts around the world, including TEDxSF, Bioneers, Hermanus Whale Festival (South Africa) and with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London. Song for the Ocean was most recently performed at The Sydney Opera House in August 2016. In 2011 she became the singer for Bella Gaia, a multimedia immersive theater experience created in conjunction with NASA. Over the past 2 years she has continued to expand her worldly voice, guest blogging for many well-respected magazines, from Elephant Journal to The Ecologist, and performing at The Conscious Life Expo (LA), the signing of The Fuji Declaration (Mt. Fuji) and The Emoto Peace Project concert in Tokyo. In 2014, Kristin was invited to become the youngest member on the board of FIONS (Friends of Institute of Noetic Sciences). In early 2016, she was voted onto the board of Gandhi Global Center for Peace and was also a new inductee into the acclaimed group Evolutionary Leaders. Her most recent work includes a self-produced album entitled The Human Compass, a symphonic collaboration with composer Marco Missinato called Unfolding Secrets: A Symphony of the Heart, and the brand new release of the meditational film, “Amazing Space,” for which Kristin composed and produced the soundtrack. In October 2015, Kristin began a new monthly musical blog with Gandhi’s BE Magazine, called “BE~Cause: Music with a Message,” and has been creating a new song every month focused around important worldly issues and themes.

Ayurveda for All Ages - David
How does water dance? What does fire want? When the wind is whispering, what does it say?

In this playful, interactive, movement-based session, we’ll introduce the five great elements — the building blocks of life according to āyurveda — in a way that even the adults will understand! Children innately know so much about the natural world, and āyurveda provides systematic access to that living wisdom.

We’ll explore the elemental archetypes by playing in the animal realm — roaring and soaring, afloat and underground. Using imagination, sensation, sound, color and movement, we’ll play our way into deeper appreciation and understanding of ourselves and others.

This two-part workshop will introduce the participants to the core values and principles of permaculture, the practice of permaculture design techniques, and show examples of permaculture based installations that exist within the community of Sunrise Ranch during a walking tour.

Breathe Yourself Awake - Rainbeau Mars
Discover the methods and tools for Healing From Within using Nature's allies to invigorate, beautify and refresh your system to get the most from your body temple. In this workshop, Rainbeau Mars (actress, activist and wellness advocate) will share how communing with these gifts of the earth can enhance your health, beauty and home naturally. The imperative to be proactive in our healthcare and protecting the environment has become vital as our society is facing toxic air, water and food, as well as diminishing bees and fertile top soil. But through the use of essential oils and supporting high integrity companies, environmental activism and natural wellness easily becomes a daily part of life.

Rainbeau Mars was born in the Ozarks in a teepee under a double rainbow, heralding her calling to serve stories that inspire, transform and heal. Attracted to theater at an early age, Mars grew to become an experienced stage actress with lead roles in regional productions of her hometown Boulder, Co, such as "Willy Wonka" and "Pippi Longstocking". In high school, Mars went on to creative writing and developing her own local TV show before moving to Molokai, Hawaii where she learned to speak pigeon, hula dance, surf and train in other aina past times. At seventeen Mars was began a modeling career on the islands, eventually booking in Colorado, Miami, and Europe. This garnered Mars the attention of Milos Forman who cast Mars in her breakout role in the controversial film The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996), which earned 2 Golden Globes and 2 Oscar Nominations. In 2000, Mars went on to featured roles in the romantic comedy If You Only Knew (2000), and teen comedies 100 Girls (2000) and Going Greek (2001). However, Mars then chose to get back to her roots and align more with her upbringing and lifelong practice of yoga, natural health and activism.

Songwriters in the Round - Sage Cook, Amber Lily, Mikey Pauker
Songwriters in the Round - Sage Cook (WE DREAM DAWN), Amber Lily, and Mikey Pauker:

The focus is on the song in this intimate dialogue and performance by and with these ARISE favorites – Sage Cook (WE DREAM DAWN and Elephant Revival), Amber Lily and Mikey Pauker.

Biography:

In 2015, when Sage Cook decided to take leave from Elephant Revival, a neo-folk quintet he had helped found in 2006, WE DREAM DAWN! quickly grew from a distant dream into a new life. Fueled by lofty ideals about approaching art while living closer to the land, this new project is honing in on a new sort of american dream. “We are hoping to be growing most of our own food in a few years, because I feel most of the worlds problems are systemic of the way we cultivate our food and medicine” Sage states.

Since childhood, Amber Lily could be found humming in the garden. Both wildly inspired and heartbroken by the world, her voice is her refuge. Her music is 1 part storytelling, 1 part soul, her voice a salve for personal and social wounds. Amber Lily along with musical partner Tubby Love has played alongside musicians such as Medicine for the People, Rising Appalachia, Ayla Nereo, Mike Love, Dustin Thomas, and others who share a message of hope and inspiration.

Mikey Pauker (pronounced pow-ker) is a folk/world artist from San Rafael California. Mikey’s early experiences at underground shows exposed him to the intense, primal energy of live music, as well as the strong community bonds that form in an authentic and close-knit scene. Inspired by teachers who blend yoga and mystical practices he went to study in Jerusalem, soaking up the hidden teachings of his ancestral lineage. These spiritual dimensions guided his artistic development as he explored ecstatic music festivals and mystical religious traditions.His sound blends elements of folk, reggae, and hip-hop, incorporating English and Hebrew roots into his devotional songwriting. The “RISE Vulnerable Rally” music video swept the world touching the hearts of over 1 million viewers this past year. Pauker has supported Rebelution, Stephen Marley, Matisyahu, Dovavon Frankenreiter, The Polish Ambassador, Mike Love, Ayla Nereo among others.

Mikey Pauker
Mikey Pauker (pronounced pow-ker) is a folk/world artist from Berkeley, California. His new album, ASCENSION, is an invitation to listen to the call of our inner wilderness and to greet our darkness with understanding and an open heart. It was recorded in raw, live instrumental sessions — a departure from Mikey’s more electronic past recordings — under the guidance of Grammy-nominated producer Warren Huart (The Fray, Trevor Hall, Matisyahu). With songs like “Say Yes” and “I AM”, listeners are elevated with catchy melodic hooks and reggae/rock beats. The “RISE Vulnerable Rally” music video swept the world touching the hearts of over 1 million viewers this past year. Growing up in Orange County, Mikey’s early experiences at underground shows exposed him to the intense, primal energy of live music, as well as the strong community bonds that form in an authentic and close-knit scene. Inspired by teachers who blend yoga and mystical practices he went to study in Jerusalem, soaking up the hidden teachings of his ancestral lineage. These spiritual dimensions guided his artistic development as he explored ecstatic music festivals and mystical religious traditions. His music implores us all to look within, sit with our darkness, and transform it into light. Mikey’s sound blends elements of folk, reggae, and hip-hop, incorporating English and Hebrew roots into his devotional songwriting. Mikey’s music draws from influences such as early Bob Marley, Van Morrison, and The Police, and listeners will immediately identify his style to the likes of Michael Franti, Trevor Hall and artists such as Mike Love and Stick Figure. This past year Mikey has supported Rebelution, Stephen Marley, Matisyahu, Dovavon Frankenreiter, The Polish Ambassador, Mike Love, and Stop Light Observations. Notable performance highlights include Red Rocks, Suwanne Hullaween, Electric Forest, Beloved, Bhakti Fest, Enchanted Forest, and Chant 4 Change on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

CASTANEA
Under the alias CASTANEA, Rising Appalachia’s own David Brown takes to the stage to remix and rework acoustic sounds with nods to the past and present tense prowess. As with bandmates Leah and Chloe, whose southern upbringing instilled love of both old-time music and hip-hop, Brown’s own musical journey had many legs, all of which come to the surface in CASTANEA. Along with the instruments for which he’s best known – the upright bass and baritone guitar – Brown’s skills cross over to turntables and beat making, through which a lush sound emerges that is both reminiscent of early trip hop classics but based in the soulful tones that arise from Appalachia. “I’ve had the honor to record and play with many great musicians and producers since joining RA” says Brown, whose collaborators in the electronic vein include Human Experience, Dirtwire, Numatik, and others. “I’ve always heard something a bit different when it comes to the remix, though, something a little more akin to the beats that I grew up skating and scratching to.” The influence of East coast hip hop, as well as the trip-hop emerging from the UK in the early 90s is evident, but the pairing of these genres with the distinctive textures of Rising Appalachia seems both new and familiar. Clearly, the sound strikes a chord with others. After debuting the EP Remast in late 2018, CASTANEA’s music has reached far and wide, with a growing international following and spins on NPR’s All Things Considered. The live CASTANEA set premiered at Resonance Festival, and has been followed up with shows across the US, British Columbia, and others coalescing in South America and Europe. In addition to showcasing Brown’s own talents, each live set has been sprinkled with appearances by other members of Rising Appalachia. “I want to create a space where we can all cut loose and get down, on stage or off,” Brown says, cracking a smile, “but also present a side to the music that is different than what we do elsewhere.” The name of the project, CASTANEA, like the music, has layers of depth and beauty. Derived from the name of the chestnut genus, it points to a tree that is slowly recovering from the brink of extinction in the eastern forests of North America (castanea dentata). Brown has dedicated proceeds from live sales of Remast towards replanting this tree, a step in ecological and cultural restoration work that gives literal roots to the name Rising Appalachia. The CASTANEA offshoot, with lush beats and a deep guiding vision, is laden with soulful fruit and entrancing potential.

WE DREAM DAWN
2019 marks a new age for WE DREAM DAWN as bassist Aera Fox lends her hypnotically angelic voice to an already dreamy mix, and Grammy Award winning producer Steven Vidaic (Citizen Cope) joins in the quest to make some of the most pleasurable music ever. Their sound is literally rooted in a food forest surrounding a cabin down a long dusty road in Kansas. It is there nearly 6 years ago that co-founders Fox and Sage Cook (Elephant Revival) first planted trees and then began to work on music and visual art. Emerging from this self imposed isolation is a lush soundscape reminiscent of a young forest dancing with the wind as melodies twist and soar like swallows weaving through the air or, sometimes, like thunder rolling over the hills. At the heart of this dance flows a dynamic play between masculine and feminine poetry that proves wholeness is greater than the sum of its parts. WE, as in all of us. DREAM, as in create. DAWN, the new day.

Decalcomania - Mark Henson
During this workshop we will use a technique commonly used by the surrealists to create organic, fluid textures that can be used as the basis for more elaborate imagery evolution.

California native Mark Henson has been working as a professional artist all his life. He graduated from the University of California, Davis in 1973. While primarily an oil painter Mark also enjoys working in a variety of other mediums, such as digital graphic arts, wood and metal. Mark exhibits his work internationally, and his imagery can be seen in many places on the internet. He has co-founded several gallery ventures, traveled extensively in Asia and elsewhere, and continues in his efforts to build a global network of artists working together. Mark was one of the first artists to "live paint" at gatherings and music festivals.

Formed in 2016, they have been accruing band members, working their way around the state, and becoming a quick local favorite. In May, 2017 SuperBubble released their self titled EP among great reviews. S.L.U.G Magazine wrote, “SuperBubble are one of the biggest surprises I have encountered this year, with one of the most solid debuts I’ve heard out of the Salt Lake scene. This album is a fleshed funk fest of jam, jive and jazz, with a couple of the strongest instrumental tracks I’ve heard for years.” In 2018, they embarked on their first tour to Europe, playing around the Netherlands and France, on their way to the ECU Film Festival in Paris.

Upstate
For Upstate, the last few years have been a time of profound exploration and self-discovery. As the band knocked off milestone after milestone on the road, their sound, their lineup, and even their name all underwent dramatic metamorphoses. Challenging and thrilling all at once, those changes have finally culminated in the sextet’s dazzling new album, a collection that showcases both their remarkable growth and their adventurous blend of folk, R&B, jazz, gospel, and rock and roll. Recorded primarily over six days at the Clubhouse studio in Rhinebeck, NY, ‘Healing’ is the band’s first release with new member Allison Olender, their first with four contributing songwriters, and their first since shortening their name from Upstate Rubdown. It’s also their first project to be produced by Wood Brothers percussionist Jano Rix, who helped the group embrace their transformation and lean in to their unique lineup without sacrificing any of the gorgeous harmonies, eclectic arrangements, and unforgettable performances that have defined the band since their earliest days. Upstate first emerged from New York’s Hudson Valley in 2015 with their critically acclaimed debut, ‘A Remedy.’ The Poughkeepsie Journal raved that the group “need[s] nothing more than their voices to channel rhythm and stoke your emotions,” while Chronogram hailed their “infectiously sunny organic stew,” and The Alt called them “toe-tapping, contagious, and fun.” The album earned the band festival performances from Mountain Jam to FreshGrass, as well as a slew of national headline dates and support slots with everyone from The Felice Brothers and Phox to Marco Benevento and Cory Henry.

The Main Squeeze
From their origins as a jam/party band in Indiana, The Main Squeeze, has been weaving the veins of Rock, Funk, Blues, and R&B into modern song stylings. Now LA-based and with three albums under their belt (last one being 2017’s Without A Sound), festival appearances from KABOO to Bonnaroo, and features from Billboard and Rolling Stone, they are of turning over a new sonic leaf this year.
The Main Squeeze released their newest single, “Fancy Clothes” on January 18th. Following in the wake of the release of “It Ain’t Me” last October, these two singles mark the start of something new and fresh for the Indiana-to-Chicago-to-Los Angeles transplants. The singles play up the modern dance-pop vibes of Bruno Mars and Charlie Puth – while channeling the swag, grit and soulful sounds of 70s bands like The Rolling Stones and Sly and the Family Stone. Produced by Teddy Roxpin “Fancy Clothes” is a tongue in cheek dance track that reflects the spotlighted LA culture in which The Main Squeeze lives.
With a rich touring history including opening slots for The Roots, Jane’s Addiction, D.R.A.M., Mac Miller, Aloe Blacc, and Umphrey’s McGee, The Main Squeeze are launching into a new musical orbit with plans for a fourth LP in 2019

Dillard
Hailing from the snow-capped mountains of Colorado, Dillard (born Dillon Gabehart) first began his journey into the depths of bass music some time in 2006. He has formed a unique sound that effortlessly blends rolling basslines with glitched out percussion and a warm, vinyl-tinged je ne sais quoi that gives his music a distinct ‘Colorado’ vibe. Dillard’s sets have become notorious not only for their variety, but for their potent combination of original productions and unreleased tunes. Of his sets, Dillard says, ”I like to have a conversation with the crowd. I feed off their energy but at the same time, I want to take them into my head so they can vibe with the same things I vibe with”. Whether it’s a new release or the chance to see Dillard live in concert, this man is NOT a creative force to overlook.

CloZee
In a feedback loop of adventure, music, and love, CloZee and her fans are ready to let the force of the sound carry everyone to places they have never been before. Being based simultaneously in Toulouse, France and on stages across the world makes this electronic musician stand out. With inspirations far afield from music – a painting, the weather, a dream – in her craft, Chloé Herry’s derivations are difficult to trace. Under the broad structure of electronic and bass music, and informed by sound the world over, Clozee finds her best fit in World Bass’ corner. CloZee has performed on many continents: from Coachella to India, on four US Tours, and everywhere around her native France. She is a standout on the roster of her labels, Gravitas Recordings & Otodayo Records. Followers in many languages drive streams counted in millions. But art’s ability to transport others is this talented producer’s special magic – manifest whenever someone presses play. In the way the clean curve of a Japanese roof is understated and exotic, CloZee pulls her power from a bold simplicity. Her classical guitar roots allow her an informed, melodic space that draws influence from flamenco to edIT of The Glitch Mob. This melting pot of instrumentation and cinematic flair puts listeners in a mood to move, with international crowds now cultivating the evolution of her genre. Chloé says she rarely lays down only electronic sounds. Her favorite sources are organic and real. To describe her life, CloZee grins and dramatizes her mind exploding. With traction growing stateside, she is set to expand far beyond the transformational festivals and tours where she grew the same roots that nourished Bassnectar, Beats Antique, and Bonobo. CloZee is breaking through the canopy and into the sun. Come see her fly.

Frameworks Live Band
Rich, warm compositions bursting with blossoming strings, pulsing bass, and haunting vocals fill the catalog of Frameworks, Manchester-based performer and producer Matthew James Brewer. Adding his sophomore LP, KINGS, to his previous two EP’s for Loci Records last year, Brewer has built an arsenal of deeply personal songs that move the body and mind. KINGS featured Ninja Tune’s Jono McCleery, who joins fellow UK standout JP Cooper among the high-profile vocalists who have contributed to the Frameworks project across downtempo, organic house, and subtle hip-hop. His debut album, Tides, released in 2015 by First Word Records first thrust the producer into the international spotlight, granting him a following in the United States. Frameworks has made a splash on the North American festival circuit, performing at Coachella, Electric Forest, Lightning in a Bottle, Camp Bisco, Global Eclipse Gathering, and the 20th anniversary of Shambhala. He’s also toured in Europe alongside Loci Records founder Emancipator. This year, Brewer has been touring the Frameworks live band lineup with drummer Cory Eberhard (Pretty Lights, Dubskin), violinist Jessica Borth (Spectacle), and bassist Keith Thomas (O-Neb, Philsh). Taking the Frameworks catalog to new and evocative heights, the live band brings a depth and focus that demands to be experienced.

Qigong for Organ Strengthening and Cleansing - Sher Eng
Qi Gong is an ancient Chinese system of postures, exercises, breathing techniques, and meditations to improve one’s qi (pronounced “chi”; Life Force Energy. It is an excellent way to take charge of your health. The Qi Gong for Organ Strengthening and Cleansing class has a focus on flushing out toxins and strengthening every organ and cell in the body by opening blockages in the energy field of specific organs. I will guide the participants step-by-step through a therapeutic blend of focused movement, deep breathing and creative visualization techniques to: Circulate Qi (Life Force Energy) to rejuvenate the entire body; Revitalize key organs (lung, heart, liver, stomach, intestines, kidneys and gall bladder) responsible for moving toxins; Soothe one’s nervous system so it releases feel-good chemicals instead of stress hormones; Restore mental clarity by harmonizing the right and left brain; and Eliminate anxiety and center yourself through energy balancing movements.
Sher’s passion for the various modes of cultivating Qi (chi), life force energy, began as a young child when her mother, of Chinese descent, taught Sher Tui Na massage as practiced by Shaolin monks. Sher, influenced by her Traditional Chinese Medicine background, continued her journey of cultivating Qi through the Arts of Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Yoga, Paranayama and meditation. A Reiki Master for fifteen years, Sher channels healing Universal Life Force Energy with her patients.

JAM key JAM
“JAMkeyJAM” is a musical concept started by two young & talented musicians from Nepal (Nabin & Bijay) where the traditional music goes contemporary. An idea is to make fit the thousands of years old classical ragas and Nepali traditional & folk music in today’s world without killing its essence, delivering their own unique style. It is about perpetuating a tradition that exists since time immemorial. Nabin Shrestha, a renowned face amongst the Coloradans is a classical tabla virtuoso of the highest order. His consistently brilliant and exciting performances have not only established him as one of the prominent musicians in his own country, Nepal but gained him worldwide fame. His deep understanding of different traditional styles of tabla playing, tonal quality, clarity and ability to collaborate with different genres of music makes him different from regular percussionists and it’s no surprise that he’s the favorite accompanist for many musicians and dancers. Music was always an essential part of his life since his childhood days, and Tabla is the medium by which he was introduced to the world of music and rhythm. In combination with the guidance of his Guru Shree Rabin Lal Shrestha and inspired by brother Rajendra Shrestha, Nabin began learning tabla at the age of eight. To this day, he still views himself as a learner in an ever-expanding exploration of the beauty in musically interpreting dynamic rhythmic sounds while performing the Tabla. While pursuing his academic studies in music, Nabin was awarded an ICCR scholarship for his Master’s degree in Music. He completed his Master’s degree from Gandharva Music University in high score. which he completed with the highest score in the year 1998. During his stay in India, he got an opportunity to further develop his knowledge with some of the greatest musical masters/gurus such as Ustaad Shri Faiyaaz Khan and Shri Tansen Shrivastav. Upon completion of a Master’s Degree from Gandharva, Nabin got an opportunity to further his musical studies under the guidance of the greatest tabla maestro of all time, Taalmani Pandit Sureshji Talwalkar, in Mumbai. Nabin had a successful career in Nepal as a performing and recording artist. Some of his original albums are, Raaganubhuti (Hindustani Classical), Murchchhana(Jazz Fusion), Re-drums (Traditional Nepali Drums and Tabla). He is also a founder of a successful band named Murchchhana which was a Jazz classical fusion band. Nabin was also teaching at Tribhuvan University, one of the reputed university in Nepal, as an Assistant Professor. Currently, Nabin is residing in the USA and is teaching and performing there. He has also launched a music school in Colorado, Aum School of Music, where students get to learn Tabla, and various other aspects of Hindustani Classical Music. He has formed a Classical fusion band named “Jam Key Jam”. They perform Hindustani music, traditional Nepalese music, fusion and collaborates with many amazing artists from all around the world. He was born to Tabla Maestro Rabin Lal Shrestha and Sitar player Bina Shrestha. Coming from a musical family, Mr. Bijay lal Shrestha started learning Tabla at the tender age of four under the guidance of his father Mr. Rabin Lal Shrestha and by the time he was 18, he completed masters degree in Tabla. Currently, he is majoring in sitar (Master degree) at Lalitkala campus under the guidance of Sitar Maestra Uma Thapa being the only young artiste in Nepal to have achieved degree in both tabla and sitar.
Mr. Shrestha has shared stage with the world-renowned flautist Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia and has following creative albums:
• Maestro Duets on Sarod (2012 AD)
• Moods of Meed (2013 AD)
• Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia Live in Nepal (2014AD)
• Abiding (2014 AD)
As result of his numerous years of training in both tabla and sitar, Mr. Shrestha’s profound understanding of diverse gharana styles and mastery of technical skill gradually began to resonate through the magical touch of his swift, agile fingers. Today he is hailed as one of the serious, young exponents of classical music, who constantly endeavors to infuse interest and respect for this traditional art in the hearts and minds of the younger generation.
He has performed in different European countries (Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Austria and Italy) with his band “Prana Mundi).
Currently, He is residing in Colorado, performing and offering sitar lessons.

Authentic Movement - Maria Flegas
Authentic movement is a contemplative practice of moving from a place of impulse~ most often done with the eyes closed, and with a witness. This form is free from agenda or interruption ~ allowing a deep unsequencing and revealing of the inner animal and mystery. It can offer liberation and sharing of the stories lying below the surface~ yielding to the language of the soft tissues. This form provides a place of deep and delicious satisfaction through inner contact and integration. By engaging what Carl Jung called "the active imagination" you may encounter image, sensation, memory, insight or an awakened dream state. Come dive in! Trust your impulses, be held in an unconditional space, and allow the magic in the environment to infuse you too.

The ARISE Pick - Members of Railroad Earth, Bridget Law, Meadow Mountain
Playshop Details:

The ARISE Pick is a special moment at ARISE. It’s an opportunity for many of the finest acoustic pickers at the festival to get together and let it rip. This year’s pick will feature musicians from Railroad Earth and Meadow Mountain along with Bridget Law. This will make for a lively session. Come down and git some!


Biography:

The members of Railroad Earth aren’t losing sleep about what “kind” of music they play – they just play it. When they started out in 2001, they were a bunch of guys interested in playing acoustic instruments together. As Railroad Earth violin/vocalist Tim Carbone recalls, “All of us had been playing in various projects for years, and many of us had played together in different projects. But this time, we found ourselves all available at the same time.”

Songwriter/lead vocalist Todd Sheaffer continues, “When we started, we only loosely had the idea of getting together and playing some music. It started that informally; just getting together and doing some picking and playing. Over a couple of month period, we started working on some original songs, as well as playing some covers that we thought would be fun to play.” Shortly thereafter, they took five songs from their budding repertoire into a studio and knocked out a demo in just two days. Their soon-to-be manager sent that demo to a few festivals, and – to the band’s surprise – they were booked at the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival before they’d even played their first gig. This prompted them to quickly go in and record five more songs; the ten combined tracks of which made up their debut album, “The Black Bear Sessions.”

Bridget is a Fiddle player by trade and a founding member of the band Elephant Revival. Elephant Revival has been successfully touring in the U.S., Canada and Europe over the last ten years. Before she embarked as a professional musician she studied the Music Industry at University of Colorado at Denver with an ambition to become an artist manager. Although her talents led her to the stage, her curiosity and enjoyment of the work behind the scenes continues to intrigue her. Recently she has begun managing her dear friend and former bandmate Sage Cook in his new band We Dream Dawn. Her passion for beautiful music and meaningful lyrics has guided her on an exciting journey thus far and continues to shape big dreams for the future!

Meadow Mountain started as a group of friends busking on the corner of the Vail farmers market, and it wasn’t long before they were playing gigs around Vail and Summit counties. They formed initially over a love of traditional and progressive bluegrass music. For the first summer of the band’s existence, they learned as much bluegrass music as they could, digging into bands like The Punch Brothers, Bluegrass Album Band, and Bela Fleck’s Drive band. It was only a year after the band formed that they were hired to be the house band aboard the cruise ship, “The Norwegian Dawn”. There, the band spent a month tightening up their sound and exploring the eastern coast of Canada. Since their return, they have become one of the premier voices in Colorado Bluegrass music. The band has given a TED talk, hosted Denver’s only performance jam, and won the prestigious Rockygrass band competition. Other notable achievements include 1st place at the 2017 Ullrgrass band competition, 3rd place at the 2017 Telluride bluegrass competition, and opening for The Del McCoury Band. They live in Denver, CO.

KatsüK is a conscious world folk fusion rock group with an infectious tribal ethereal pop atmosphere that feels like an epic cinematic soundscape. Created by composer/performer Daniel Katsük who recently starred in Denver’s The Portal: A Modern Shamanic Journey, voice actor for Cartoon Network and former member of Spoonfed Tribe, the group KatsüK is a fiercely prolific, dynamic and exhilarating musical experience replete with movements ranging from folk to rock to reggae to raga to funk and soul to highly charged percussive eruptions to sweet and melodious symphonic textures. “One of the best things about this band is their live performance. They create an atmosphere that envelops the listener like a wall of sound one does not want to escape from. They are powerful performance artists who weave smoky, woodsy vocals into elemental guitar melodies, harmonies, and percussion” ~Fort Worth Texas Magazine~ “Weaving together an impressively thick sonic tapestry,” Fort Worth-based KatsüK and their “massive Middle Eastern sound” call to mind both “Dead Can Dance and acoustic Led Zeppelin.” ~Harder Beat Magazine~

Music, Social Justice & Political Engagement: Singing Truth to Power - Leah Song, Drew McManus, Big Samir, Amber Lily, Mikey Pauker
Music, Social Justice & Political Engagement: Singing Truth to Power - Leah Song (Rising Appalachia), Drew McManus (Satsang), Big Samir (The Reminders), Amber Lily and Mikey Pauker:

Engage in this discussion and performance with Leah Song (Rising Appalachia), Drew McManus (Satsang), Big Samir (The Reminders), Amber Lily and Mikey Pauker regarding believing deeply in what you sing and raising your voice to have that heard. It may not be popular, it might mean taking a risk, and it wholeheartedly means standing for something.


Biography:

Leah Song (musician. educator. artist.) has been a traveling and performing artist since her childhood-beginning in the rowdy, concrete jungle of Atlanta, Georgia, rooting into the beautiful mountains of Appalachia, into the deep swamps of New Orleans, and spread to the far reaches of the globe. She studied wood fired ceramics, herbal medicine, welding, painting, anthropology, Latin American politics, dance, ballad singing, poetry, travel writing, and horse archery among others. Finding no employment that required such a strange resume, she began a folk music project with her sister instead, thus beginning Rising Appalachia. She has an enormous reverence for the crossroads of art and justice in all of its forms, and has pointed her compass towards that work in everything she does.

Drew McManus is the frontman and songwriter for Satsang. He is also a painter, combat sports athlete, family man and activist

Big Samir, one half of The Reminders is a musician, and he also teaches Financial Literacy in schools across the country.
Musically, his lyrics are all about empowerment.

Since childhood, Amber Lily could be found humming in the garden. Both wildly inspired and heartbroken by the world, her voice is her refuge. Her music is 1 part storytelling, 1 part soul, her voice a salve for personal and social wounds. Amber Lily along with musical partner Tubby Love has played alongside musicians such as Medicine for the People, Rising Appalachia, Ayla Nereo, Mike Love, Dustin Thomas, and others who share a message of hope and inspiration.

Mikey Pauker (pronounced pow-ker) is a folk/world artist from San Rafael California. Mikey’s early experiences at underground shows exposed him to the intense, primal energy of live music, as well as the strong community bonds that form in an authentic and close-knit scene. Inspired by teachers who blend yoga and mystical practices he went to study in Jerusalem, soaking up the hidden teachings of his ancestral lineage. These spiritual dimensions guided his artistic development as he explored ecstatic music festivals and mystical religious traditions.His sound blends elements of folk, reggae, and hip-hop, incorporating English and Hebrew roots into his devotional songwriting. The “RISE Vulnerable Rally” music video swept the world touching the hearts of over 1 million viewers this past year. Pauker has supported Rebelution, Stephen Marley, Matisyahu, Dovavon Frankenreiter, The Polish Ambassador, Mike Love, Ayla Nereo among others.

Pixie & The Partygrass Boys
There is a feeling of unbridled life found in the wild corners of our world. In the expansive possibility of a mountain top, the chaotic familiarity of endless fields of snow, the roar of the ocean, or the solitary serenity of the most remote desert. It is in these places and moments that Pixie and The Partygrass Boys find inspiration, crafting music that channels the same highs, lows, and improvisational in-betweens. Partygrass isn’t exactly bluegrass, or newgrass, or pop, or punk, or rock and roll. They fall somewhere in between it all, and that’s exactly how they like it. Drawing influence from the bluegrass roots of Appalachia and transporting it straight to the western edge of the Rockies, Pixie and the Partygrass Boys create a uniquely American sound. Inspired by landscapes from coast to coast, the group combines classical training with jazz, Broadway, pop-punk, and an unabashed love for having a damn good time. Pixie and the Partygrass Boys have played for national audiences at festivals including High Sierra Music Festival, WinterWonderGrass, and ARISE, and have shared the stage with names like Grace Potter, Billy Strings, The Lil Smokies, and The Jon Stickly Trio.

Hermetic Philosophy in the Now Age - Jesse Chestnutt (Lodge of the Sun)
As Above, So Below. As Within, So Without. The goal is to understand the nature and constructs of the subtle energies which make up all things. By seeing and understanding these patterns in the manifest world we may then identify these forces, geometries, and aspects within our psyche. This gives one the power to illuminate and make conscious the sub- and super-conscious constructs within. This introspection allows our self-consciousness to be cleansed and connected in harmony with the micro and macro aspects of reality and the world at large. The ancient knowledge of the Hermetic Philosophy is at the foundation of western mysticism and understanding. This wisdom can help us reconnect to the source of our awareness and power, while harmonizing us with the underlying laws of nature, consciousness and reality.



Jesse Shi Chesnutt is a modern mystic, philosopher, and musician who has spent his life exploring many fields of study: unified physics, transpersonal psychology, sacred geometry and various occult studies. Jesse crystallizes complex information down to its simplest essence making the mystical pursuit more tangible, understandable, and relatable.

Life is Perfect Radiance Flowing Through Your Mind - Javier Sloninsky
Join Javier, co-founder of Living Flow, for meditation and discussion on what a true pathway to enlightenment looks like in today’s world. We are living in difficult times where it can be really hard to get through the day, let alone find a road to higher consciousness! But the enlightenment traditions have given us powerful tools that allow us to use extremely difficult and negative situations as springboards into enlightened states of consciousness. We will explore how the inner light of consciousness creates our awareness and how we can learn to perceive it directly in everyday life so that it transforms us completely.
Javier has been a UC Berkeley drop out, a highly successful technology entrepreneur, a startup advisor, angel investor, and for over 25 years, an inner explorer on the pathway to enlightenment. He studied enlightenment with Rama, a modern-day American enlightened master, and today is dedicated to passing on what he learned from his teacher and his own experiences to help transmit higher consciousness to anyone who’s interested.

Satsang
Satsang is a power trio creating a unique blend of soul, folk-rock, and hip-hop. Satsang delivers lyrics that come from and are rooted in change, growth, awareness, and imperfection. The live show is everything that the band name suggests: a gathering of people to assimilate and share their truths. The rhythms put forth by the band keep everyone on their feet, and the lyrics leave them craving active and positive change. Satsang has toured all over the country and has shared the stage with the likes of Michael Franti & Spearhead, Steel Pulse, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Trevor Hall and many more. Lead singer and songwriter Drew McManus creates music for his soul, fueled by the ever-present task of personal growth and the beautiful life that he found in the Beartooth Mountains of Montana. Commenting on his difficult upbringing in Des Moines and residency in Chicago, McManus says, “I grew up in an environment where aggression, violence, abuse, and addiction were always present. It made me a lot of things; angry, sad, and ashamed. I hated my story and I was a slave to addiction. I tried for so long to hide from the reality of my story and the reality of how beautiful life could be.” It wasn’t until an intense spiritual experience lead Drew to break his cycle of addiction. “I had changed my entire outlook on everything” say McManus, “I began to realize that had everything not happened to me exactly like it did, I would not be exactly who/where/what I am right now.” In an effort to share his revelation with others who may be in the same predicament, Drew began to write every day. “I was flooded with the urge to write down the lessons that kept revealing themselves in this surrender. And the connections I began making with other people by making this music vulnerable and open, began to change everything.” These songs are a statement of lessons learned and a further understanding of self. “The whole story is what makes it beautiful, not just the good bits.” Satsang released their sophomore album Pyramid(s) in March of 2017 and saw it quickly rise to #1 on the Billboard Reggae charts and #2 on the iTunes charts. The band also surprise-released a new EP, In Between Another Blink at the end of 2017 and had it crack the top 20 on the iTunes Singer/ Songwriter chart with no advance promotion. The band spent 2018 selling out two-thirds of their shows on headline tours in the Midwest, Northeast, and on the Pacific Coast. This success shows the proof of concept in creating legions of fans from coast to coast on support tours with Michael Franti, Trevor Hall, Wookiefoot and Nahko and Medicine for the People. Now, fresh out of the studio with their third full-length studio album “Kulture” ready for 2019 release, they enter a new year with a quiver of new tunes and poised for more magical moments.

How to Strike Fire with Higher Purpose During Saturn in Capricorn - Mark Borax
Soul Level Astrologer Mark Borax will address How to Strike Fire with Higher Purpose During Saturn in Capricorn. Through soulful sharing, penetrating insights, humor and music, Mark will work his starry magic to suggest how to unleash your creativity and bring your higher nature down to earth as Saturn passes through Capricorn from 2018 to 2020, a 3-year period we are halfway through.
Mark Borax is a master astrologer, international bestselling author and accomplished songwriter. In 1987 he created Soul Level Astrology as a way to use the birth chart to identify the core nature and higher purpose of individuals. Barbara Marx Hubbard (may her journey beyond be blessed) said, "Mark's reading penetrated to my soul's destiny. I highly recommend him to all pioneers working toward the conscious evolution of ourselves and our world." Mark heads the College of Visionaries & Wizards, which teaches students around the world to read birth charts in the profound magical way that he does. Every three years CVW launches a new 3-year chart study certification program, which is launching in September 2019, and still has room for students. Before he returns to his Vermont home he will be conducting 80-minute soul sessions in Denver and Boulder immediately following the Arise festival. His first book, 2012: Crossing the Bridge to the Future, is a page-turning mystical memoir of his adventures in love, sex and astrology, and he's putting the finishing touches on a radical revision of the 12 Sun Signs which will be published a year from now.

Mikey Pauker
Mikey Pauker (pronounced pow-ker) is a folk/world artist from Berkeley, California. His new album, ASCENSION, is an invitation to listen to the call of our inner wilderness and to greet our darkness with understanding and an open heart. It was recorded in raw, live instrumental sessions — a departure from Mikey’s more electronic past recordings — under the guidance of Grammy-nominated producer Warren Huart (The Fray, Trevor Hall, Matisyahu). With songs like “Say Yes” and “I AM”, listeners are elevated with catchy melodic hooks and reggae/rock beats. The “RISE Vulnerable Rally” music video swept the world touching the hearts of over 1 million viewers this past year. Growing up in Orange County, Mikey’s early experiences at underground shows exposed him to the intense, primal energy of live music, as well as the strong community bonds that form in an authentic and close-knit scene. Inspired by teachers who blend yoga and mystical practices he went to study in Jerusalem, soaking up the hidden teachings of his ancestral lineage. These spiritual dimensions guided his artistic development as he explored ecstatic music festivals and mystical religious traditions. His music implores us all to look within, sit with our darkness, and transform it into light. Mikey’s sound blends elements of folk, reggae, and hip-hop, incorporating English and Hebrew roots into his devotional songwriting. Mikey’s music draws from influences such as early Bob Marley, Van Morrison, and The Police, and listeners will immediately identify his style to the likes of Michael Franti, Trevor Hall and artists such as Mike Love and Stick Figure. This past year Mikey has supported Rebelution, Stephen Marley, Matisyahu, Dovavon Frankenreiter, The Polish Ambassador, Mike Love, and Stop Light Observations. Notable performance highlights include Red Rocks, Suwanne Hullaween, Electric Forest, Beloved, Bhakti Fest, Enchanted Forest, and Chant 4 Change on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

Songwriters in the Round - Aja Black, Tubby Love, Katia Racine
Songwriters in the Round - Aja Black (The Reminders), Tubby Love, and Katia Racine (Pixie & The Partygrass Boys):
The focus is on the song in this intimate dialogue and performance by and with these ARISE favorites – Aja Black (The Reminders), Tubby Love, and Katia Racine (Pixie & The Partygrass Boys).

Biography:

Aja Black is one half of The Reminders. The Reminders are a rare and remarkable musical duo seamlessly blending soulful sounds and roots music with insightful messages and thoughtful lyrics. The group consists of Brussels-born emcee Big Samir and Queens-born emcee/vocalist Aja Black, a collective creative force that’s hard to beat. Big Samir weaves intricate rhythmic patterns with a bilingual French/English flow, displaying his street-smart credibility in both his lyrics and cool demeanor. This is beautifully complimented by Aja Black’s confident delivery, diverse cadences, and unique vocal stylings. The two have an undeniable magical chemistry as they share more than lyrical abilities and stages; the couple shares a partnership in both music and life as Samir and Aja have been married for a decade.

From the garden to the globe,Tubby Love is gathering the tribe. Born David Andrew Terrett, Tubby’s physical, spiritual, and musical transformation has been a testimony to the power of human evolution. Music has been the catalyst for deepening his connection to life and also a bridge for sharing his journey with others. Calling the island of Kauai home has set forth a Roots Family movement involving regenerative land and energy practices connecting communities inter-island and worldwide. Tubby and his partner Amber Lily have been blessed to create a soundtrack for this movement alongside artists like Medicine For The People, Dustin Thomas, Wookiefoot, Trevor Hall, Mike Love, Nattali Rize, Paul Izak, Rising Appalachia, Cas Haley, as well as other artists with a similar message. In a time of much needed change, Tubby Love is unifying the people through music and addressing real issues to inspire solutions.

Katia Racine, aka Pixie, began her musical development in the womb. Her father having studied classical guitar at the Peabody conservatory, Katia was born into a world of music. Growing up in a musical household in Maryland, Katia quickly became a multi-instrumentalist, learning piano, guitar, ukulele, clarinet and having written numerous songs by her teens. She studied Musical Theater at Northeastern University in Boston before moving to Utah where she formed the progressive bluegrass band Pixie and The Partygrass Boys, whom she now tours with full time.

Railroad Earth
There’s a great scene in The Last Waltz – the documentary about The Band’s final concert – where director Martin Scorsese is discussing music with drummer/singer/mandolin player Levon Helm. Helm says, “If it mixes with rhythm, and if it dances, then you’ve got a great combination of all those different kinds of music: country, bluegrass, blues music, show music…” To which Scorsese, the inquisitive interviewer, asks, “What’s it called, then?” “Rock & roll!” Clearly looking for a more specific answer, but realizing that he isn’t going to get one, Marty laughs. “Rock & roll…” Well, that’s the way it is sometimes: musicians play music, and don’t necessarily worry about where it gets filed. It’s the writers, record labels, managers, etc., who tend to fret about what “kind” of music it is. And like The Band, the members of Railroad Earth aren’t losing sleep about what “kind” of music they play – they just play it. When they started out in 2001, they were a bunch of guys interested in playing acoustic instruments together. As Railroad Earth violin/vocalist Tim Carbone recalls, “All of us had been playing in various projects for years, and many of us had played together in different projects. But this time, we found ourselves all available at the same time.” Songwriter/lead vocalist Todd Sheaffer continues, “When we started, we only loosely had the idea of getting together and playing some music. It started that informally; just getting together and doing some picking and playing. Over a couple of month period, we started working on some original songs, as well as playing some covers that we thought would be fun to play.” Shortly thereafter, they took five songs from their budding repertoire into a studio and knocked out a demo in just two days. Their soon-to-be manager sent that demo to a few festivals, and – to the band’s surprise – they were booked at the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival before they’d even played their first gig. This prompted them to quickly go in and record five more songs; the ten combined tracks of which made up their debut album, “The Black Bear Sessions.” That was the beginning of Railroad Earth’s journey: since those early days, they’ve gone on to release five more critically acclaimed studio albums and one hugely popular live one called, “Elko.” They’ve also amassed a huge and loyal fanbase who turn up to support them in every corner of the country, and often take advantage of the band’s liberal taping and photo policy. But Railroad Earth bristle at the notion of being lumped into any one “scene.” Not out of animosity for any other artists: it’s just that they don’t find the labels very useful. As Carbone points out, “We use unique acoustic instrumentation, but we’re definitely not a bluegrass or country band, which sometimes leaves music writers confused as to how to categorize us. We’re essentially playing rock on Ultimately, Railroad Earth’s music is driven by the remarkable songs of front-man, Todd Sheaffer, and is delivered with seamless arrangements and superb musicianship courtesy of all six band members. As mandolin/bouzouki player John Skehan points out, “Our M.O. has always been that we can improvise all day long, but we only do it in service to the song. There are a lot of songs that, when we play them live, we adhere to the arrangement from the record. And other songs, in the nature and the spirit of the song, everyone knows we can kind of take flight on them.” Sheaffer continues: “The songs are our focus, our focal point; it all starts right there. Anything else just comments on the songs and gives them color. Some songs are more open than others. They ‘want’ to be approached that way – where we can explore and trade musical ideas and open them up to different territories. But sometimes it is what the song is about.” So: they can jam with the best of them and they have some bluegrass influences, but they use drums and amplifiers (somewhat taboo in the bluegrass world). What kind of music is it then? Mandolin/vocalist John Skehan offers this semi-descriptive term: “I always describe it as a string band, but an amplified string band with drums.” Tim Carbone takes a swing: “We’re a Country & Eastern band! ” Todd Sheaffer offers “A souped-up string band? I don’t know. I’m not good at this.” Or, as a great drummer/singer/mandolin player with an appreciation for Americana once said: “Rock & roll!”

Rising Appalachia
As world travelers for nearly two decades, Rising Appalachia have merged multiple global music influences with their own southern roots to create the inviting new folk album, Leylines. Remarkably the band has built its legion of listeners independently — a self-made success story that has led to major festival appearances and sold-out shows at venues across the country.

Founded by sisters Leah and Chloe Smith, the band established an international fan base due to relentless touring, tireless activism, and no small degree of stubborn independence. However, for the first time, they opted to bring in a producer for the new album, teaming up with the legendary Joe Henry on the sessions. These were also their first recording sessions outside of the South. For 10 days, all six band members lived and recorded in a castle-like studio in Marin County, California, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. As a result, a sense of unity and immediacy can be heard throughout their seventh album, Leylines.

“As far as recording goes, we’re open creatively, but we’ve often preferred elements of live recording. I mean, we’re folk musicians at our core,” Leah explains. “The experience of playing music together in one room, looking at each other, is the bedrock of what we do and how we’ve grown up with music. I think Joe very much felt that way as well. He was very clear at the beginning that he was going to encourage us to have as many element of a live recording as possible.”

Although Leah and Chloe Smith consider their voices as their primary instrument, Leah also plays banjo and bodhran on the album, while Chloe plays guitar, fiddle, and banjo. They are joined on Leylines by longtime members David Brown (stand-up bass, baritone guitar) and Biko Casini (world percussion, n’goni), as well as two new members: West African musician Arouna Diarra (n’goni, talking drum) and Irish musician Duncan Wickel (fiddle, cello). The sonic textures of these two cultures are woven into Leylines, enhancing the stunning blend of folk, world, and urban music that has become Rising Appalachia’s calling card.

“Our songwriting ties into those traditions as well,” Chloe says. “With some of our original songs, it’s a reflection of the times. We’re folk singers and we consider this a folk album, so there’s a lot in there. There’s word of politics, of being women in the music industry, as well as a lot about our lives on the road.”

Indeed, Rising Appalachia has toured British Columbia by sailboat, traversed the U.S. and Europe by train, and engaged in immersive cultural exchange programs in Bulgaria, Ireland, Southern Italy, Central and South America – not to mention the countless miles in a van. Tour highlights include: Hardly Strictly Bluegrass in San Francisco; Music Hall Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York; Boulder Theatre in Boulder, Colorado; and the Showbox in Seattle, Washington. The band consistently sells between 400 and 1500 tickets wherever they play, a testament to their loyal fan base.

Leah and Chloe grew up in urban Atlanta as the city’s hip hop scene began to flourish. They absorbed those rhythms through the music they heard at school, then traveled with their family to fiddle camps all across the Southeast on the weekends. The young girls weren’t all that interested in the old-time playing, but their parents were incredibly devout in their study and practice of Appalachian music.

After high school, Leah decided to postpone college and travel internationally. Feeling homesick while living in Southern Mexico, she looked for a connection to her past and taught herself how to play banjo. “I realized that I wanted something from home that I could share, something that would tell people a bit more of the story of where I came from, other than the news,” she recalls.

A few years later, when Chloe came to visit her abroad, Leah offered some clawhammer banjo lessons. They didn’t necessarily realize it at the time but a musical partnership had been established. Upon their return to the United States, they recorded an album, which they considered an art project, to sell whenever they sang at farmer’s markets. They printed 500 copies, figuring that would last them a lifetime. However, when a local college professor heard them singing at a Christmas party, he booked them as part of a Celtic holiday concert in Atlanta. After two performances, every CD had been sold.

Surprised and overwhelmed, they mulled over a career as full-time musicians, then realized that performing could be just one component of a greater overall vision – one that includes advocating for social justice, racial justice, environmental justice, and Indigenous rights.

“We’re able to filter in so many of our passions into this project,” Chloe says. “We do a lot of activism work. We do a lot of outreach. Leah is a visual artist and she can funnel her visual eye into the project. I love to write, so that comes in. There’s a big container and canvas for our life’s work here. Music is part of it, but there are a lot of other creative vehicles that are driving Rising Appalachia.”

Special guests on Leylines include folk hero Ani DiFranco, soulful songwriter Trevor Hall, and jazz trumpeter Maurice Turner. The album title alludes to the concept of invisible lines believed to stretch around the world between sacred spaces, bonded by a spiritual and magnetic presence. That deep sense of connection is key to understanding Rising Appalachia as a whole.

“Rising Appalachia has come out of this idea that we can take these traditions of southern music – that we’ve been born and raised with – and we can rise out of them, creating all these different bridges between cultures and stories to make them feel alive.” Leah says. “Our music has its foundation in heritage and tradition, but we’re creating a music that also feels reflective of the times right now. That’s always been our work.”

Cycles
Cycles epitomize the power-trio format with ripping guitar, fat bass grooves played out through furious slapping, and dynamic drum beats flowing over intricate tempo changes. Each member wields a unique take on their instrument that when played together, forms a truly fresh and cohesive sound. Patrick Harvey commands the guitar with speed and precision reminiscent of Jimmy Herring while using his loop pedal virtually as its own instrument, a skill unique only to him. Michael Wood has subtly forged a drum style that showcases his rare ability to mashup funky hip-hop beats with frenzied rock riffs and only displays flashy technique when necessary while implementing the creative use of various sound-modulating drum triggers. At the heart of the band lies Tucker McClung’s dominant slap-bass chops that captivates audiences and pumps the musical blood through the band. The current incarnation of the ever-developing sound of Cycles reveals itself today as a staggering display of seemingly innocuous lyrics over purposeful compositions that only begin to mean more with time. Screaming peaks and balanced grooves find their way out of the chaos of a jam while samples ripped from anything between Prince, Missy Elliott, Chris Farley and Mortal Kombat movie quotes (and much more) ring out in the mix adding to the multicolored blend of sound filling a room and often standing out as comedic elements of the show. Drawing influence from artists such as Rage Against the Machine, J. Dilla, Primus, Weather Report, and many more, Cycles fuse an eclectic blend of genres to produce an original sound that has become harder and harder to find. Although only a few years old, Cycles have over 250 shows under their belt with tours extending across the entire U.S. A heavy touring schedule keeps them on their toes while providing the inspiration to continue to write and always strive to play better. Look out for their name soon on a festival schedule in your hands or a club marquee playing with your favorite bands.

Evanoff
Denver based and Boulder-born, dream rock trio Evanoff is no doubt a force to be reckoned with in the Colorado music scene. The group has pioneered a unique, electrifying blend of analog and digital sounds they call “Dream Rock.” Dancey breakbeats, symphonic guitar riffs, powerful builds, and face melting jams define the increasingly popular genre. Containing both heavy rock and soft melodic styles, the groups most stand out feature is their ability to capture the crowd’s attention while creating heartfelt tension accompanied by groovy dance beats that release unimaginable amounts of energy. There is an energetic joy and purification that comes from seeing an Evanoff show…. Evanoff consists of its three core members: JJ Evanoff (Guitar), Jake Hall (Drums) and Brennan Forrester (Keys). In just under two years the band has performed at an array of major national festivals including Electric Forest, Euphoria and Gem & Jam, Mumford & Sons Gentlemen of the Road, Vertex, Sonic Bloom, and Arise. The trio has been hitting the road hard over the past two years creating major markets in the southwest, midwest and the northeastern US.

Totem
Established in Summer 2015, Totem is the solo project of Boulder based producer, Phoenix Clay Michael. Phoenix has been playing eastern-style instrumentation for over a decade(tabla, doumbek, darbuki, didgeridoo, ric, native flute etc). With Totem, Phoenix explores the digital domain with rich melodies, psychedelic synths, and exotic instrumentation. Totem culminates these two passions into a modern interpretation of ancient instruments. The sampling style is deep and visceral. Blending sequences of thick bass and instrumentation with live production. Live production includes: Didgeridoo, vocals, synth, keyboard, percussion, and bass. Phoenix’s debut album with Totem is titled, The Bonfire of Life, and was written as a motion of solidarity with the native tribes of North America. Totem sees the immense potency that dance has for healing in our culture, and also sees the reverent nature of ancient and native style music. The ultimate thrill is fusing these two things into a continuous musical experience shared amongst listener and maker.
