Sligo Creek Stompers
The Sligo Creek Stompers — Sarah Ford, Adrian Erlanger, Jess Eliot Myhre, and Chris Ousley — play a raucous but refined blend of traditional roots music: Appalachian and Midwestern old time and bluegrass; New Orleans-style traditional jazz; haunted Irish fiddle tunes; honky tonk and classic country; Texas and gypsy swing. Inspired by scratchy 78 rpm records, contra dancing and a good bottle of whiskey, the Stompers are keeping the flame of American stringband music alive in the Washington, D.C., area.
“Hearing the [Sligo Creek Stompers] is like stepping into a time machine.” —WTOP
Lulu’s Fate performs a mix of music from the Appalachian, southern string band and country blues traditions, as well as original tunes and covers ranging from Hank Williams to Tom Waits. With Tom Espinola on mandolin and guitar, Kristen Jones on cello, and singer Kara Falck, the trio blends virtuosic instrumentals with lush three-part vocal harmonies to create new interpretations of traditional tunes. Lulu’s Fate is based in the Washington, D.C., metro area and has performed at the Takoma Park Folk Festival, Washington Folk Festival, Institute of Musical Traditions and numerous house concerts throughout the area.
