David Wax Museum

Pioneering folk musicians David Wax and Suz Slezak are the plucky husband-wife duo behind the eclectic, exuberant, “Mexo-Americana” band David Wax Museum. The band’s genre-defying, shapeshifting personality is on full display with everything from downtempo, nuanced songs to the boisterous and bombastic, making it obvious how a band with this kind of breadth has comfortably shared the stage with acts as diverse as The Avett Brothers, Latin legends Los Lobos and Buena Vista Social Club, and indie darlings Gregory Alan Isakov and Mandolin Orange.

First reaching national acclaim with a show-stopping debut at the Newport Folk Festival, David Wax Museum has built a reputation around energetic, heartfelt live shows and sonically adventurous albums that fly the worldly flag for a brand of Americana that reaches far beyond our borders.

The Travis Williams Group

Travis Williams has spent more than 20 years working professionally as a bassist in North Carolina. However, when stepping out on his own it was not the bass he would choose to play, it was another passion…the oud, an 11-string fretless lute. Mostly associated with traditional Arabic music, the oud captured Williams’ imagination the first time he heard it.

The band consists of five world class musicians playing original compositions influenced by traditional Arabic Maqam music, modern jazz, pop, rock, and music from all over the world, including African and Scandinavian music.
