The Nesters

You might say The Nesters, Eliza Blue and Jami Lynn, were destined to play music together.  They're accomplished vocalists, great writers and multi-instrumentalists who just happen to dig each other's music.  Brought together by their love of the banjo and prairie narratives, The Nesters are making an impact without having released a record.  Thanks to The Nesters for this opportunity to hear their performance at the BrickHouse Community Arts Center in Madison from August!

Rachel Ries

Singer/songwriter Rachel Ries got her start in Freeman and, through her travels and experiences, she has become a worldly artist, crafting sly and compassionate songs.  As the daughter of missionaries, she spent time in Zaire, sharing music of faith.  Ries has lived in Chicago and New York City, where apartment living made her feel trapped.  Living in Vermont helped solve that problem. 

Ries made her recording debut in 2005 with For You Only.  It was captured on vintage analog equipment and included piano, accordion, banjo, fiddle, pump organ and percussion.
