An infectious spirit and undying optimism permeated Lindsay Lou and The Flatbellys, and they continue full steam ahead, writing, travelling, and performing a diverse collection of music that spans from hard-line traditional bluegrass to the progressive fringe of the genre. Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys’ new album, Release Your Shrouds, marks a remarkable step forward and that’s thanks in part to the relationship between Lindsay Lou and Joshua Rilko, which blossomed in their college days and, with their recent marriage, now forms the core of the band. Joshua plays mandolin and joins his voice with Lindsay in beautiful harmony on the new album which is a window to a bluegrass band spreading its wings and incorporating new influences into their sound. Lindsay Lou’s songs are fully crafted stories, often based on real-life experiences, with lovely hooks and choruses. The breadth of the songs’ themes pushes each band member to work outside the bluegrass box and the results are delightful. Like any family, Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys are more than the sum of their parts. They’re an all-American family, front-porch pickin’ party, with each song shining with the polish of handmade homemade acoustic roots music.

Rio Con Brio captivates audiences around the country with their intimate performance of the beautiful and esoteric Brazilian repertoire known as choro, the early 20th Century street music of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Influenced by equal parts Afro-Brazilian rhythms and the contemporary cafe music of Italy, France, Spain and Portugal, choro is both exotic and familiar, evoking in turn the carnival of Rio and the cafes of Paris.

Seattle’s country darling has gone nation-wide, and rightfully so! When it comes to sincere, humble yet humbling Americana – or just plain country music in the truest, best sense of the word, Zoe Muth sounds more like she hails from the black hills of Oklahoma than the back roads of Ballard. Yet this Seattle native is becoming as popular in the heartland as the left coast, and those who’ve had the pleasure of seeing her at the Treehouse before aren’t wasting any time getting tickets again, so hurry!
Zoe Muth has been called “Seattle’s own Emmylou” because her voice is as clear as a country spring and the simple, elegant lyrics she pens match this siren perfectly. The sparse yet choice arrangements of her seasoned band further justify the comparisons to Loretta or Patsy, and her disarming stage presence will win your heart!
