One of Irish music's new "super-groups".

RUNA has been enchanting audiences by pushing the boundaries of Irish folk music into the Americana and roots music formats since their formation in 2008. Interweaving the haunting melodies and exuberant tunes of Ireland and Scotland with the lush harmonies and intoxicating rhythms of jazz, bluegrass, flamenco, and blues, they offer a thrilling and redefining take on traditional music.

May Memorial Unitarian Society

Indie-folky-pop with a spiritual, whimsical attitude.

Terry Burns and Ron Kristy met after many years as independent musicians and singer/songwriters in Nashville. They were married in 2004, but it was not until 2011 that they made the decision to become a musical duo and produce a CD. Terry and Ron launched their debut CD in July 2012 to rave reviews. The single "Blue Paper Boat" from that CD was a Top 3 Finalist in the International Acoustic Music Awards. They have made their home in Ithaca and are currently recording a new CD. Their live show is one of a kind, with fine songwriting, deeply rich harmonies and great musicianship. As entertaining as it is moving, the show ranges from the deeply touching to the hilarious in a split second.

May Memorial Unitarian Society
3800 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

With three strong songwriters whose voices blend beautifully, the future of the folk trio is in good hands.

Start with the 1960s folk tradition of Peter, Paul & Mary; add the vocal complexity and electric energy of Crosby, Stills & Nash, a dash of the Byrds, and a jot of Joni Mitchell, and you have Gathering Time, a folk-rock/Americana harmony trio that has been turning heads for nearly a decade on the northeastern folk circuit and beyond.


Milkweed

Milkweed is the collaboration of three artists—Joseph Alston, guitar and vocals; Jacqualine Colombo, guitar and vocals; and Peter Lister, upright bass and vocals. Without committing to one genre, Milkweed has pulled from many of the great aspects of American music and created their own brand of American song and story telling.

Whether it is bluegrass guitar flat picking, Chicago blues harmonica, Irish ballads, or Jersey shore folk songs, Milkweed weaves together the sounds that make up the rich tapestry of American music history. With their lyrics they set themselves apart from the norm, taking the simple stories of everyday people and telling them through the lens of dreams and what it means to be a human. The root of the band's sound is in the use of three-part harmony to impart a sense of importance and depth to their lyrics that brings the listener into their songs.
