Lara Ruggles & The Lost Gold
Lara Ruggles grew up listening to Patsy Cline, Emmylou Harris, Cat Stevens, Joan Baez, and the Judds. She sang her first concert in three-part harmony and won her first poetry slam. Her unique blend of avant-pop and soul-folk is passionate and powerful, even when sung from whimsical points of view such as the perspective of a purse. With the attention to lyricism of Conor Oberst, the intensity of Florence and the Machine and the ear for infectious melodies of Ingrid Michaelson, Lara's piano and guitar-driven melodies invite the listener on a journey through soaring hooks, battle scenes and postcards written from well-loved and desolate desert landscapes. Lara's music is unafraid to acknowledge the dark places within the range of the human emotional experience. She engages with her audiences in an unabashedly genuine way, telling raw stories and allowing her own vulnerability to be a point of connection and empowerment. Lara is a two-time finalist in the Tucson Folk Festival Songwriting Contest. She has shared the stage with prepared guitar pioneer Janet Feder, Steven Vidaic of Citizen Cope, and Nina Storey and been honored as a finalist in the renowned Eddie's Attic open mic competition. Lara will release her debut full-length album, Cynics and Saints, on Immersive Records in 2014.
Cabin Dogs
Cabin Dogs
What started with a mountain retreat by two brothers (Rich and Rob Kwait) and two dogs, would turn into a 15 year musical escapade back in their hometown of Philadelphia.

CABIN DOGS - a six piece live band - blend original American country roots with a subtle 70's groove, creating a sound best compared to The Band, Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan with shades of Gillian Welch and Wilco. "Inventive," "rollicking" "timeless and "magical" have described the band's four releases (two as Cabin Dogs and two as Kwait Brothers Band).

Playing stages that have included Newport Folk Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival and Appel Farm Festival (as well as every dive bar venue in Philadelphia), the live sound of the CABIN DOGS compels melodious moon howling and strange dance moves not thought physically possible.
Silverton builds songs from the ground up, drawing from tales of love and loss and a not-so-secret obsession with all things 90s. The result is layered harmonies, catchy melodies, and intricate rhythms. The band released their first, self-titled, debut EP in October, 2013. Since the release, Silverton has been packing DIY house shows as well as established venues in Philadelphia like Johnny Brendas, Kung Fu Necktie and Bourbon & Branch. In February, 2015, WXPN chose "Artichoke" as a Philly local song of the day, and in August, 2015 the band was honored to be selected to play the Philadelphia Folk Fest.
