Hot Buttered Rum
Hot Buttered Rum
Hot Buttered Rum (also known as Hot Buttered Rum String Band and HBRSB) is an American five-piece progressive bluegrass act based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The group performs frequently at music festivals, including the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Newport Folk Festival, South by Southwest, High Sierra Music Festival, Bonnaroo Music Festival, Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. They have also headlined The Fillmore in their home city of San Francisco and have performed with a wide array of artists, including Phil Lesh, Ben Harper, Chris Thile, Bela Fleck, Peter Rowan, and Bill Nershi.

Their song "Right Between Your Eyes" gained national prominence when it was selected to serve as the theme music for the PBS TV show, "Cook's Country from America's Test Kitchen".

Rebekah Rolland Trio
Rebekah Rolland is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter based in Tucson. Early immersion in Arizona’s old-time and Bluegrass scene fueled her love for the tradition of storytelling through music, prompting her to study literature and music at the University of Arizona before setting out on several national tours with Tucson-based band, Run Boy Run. Five years on the road as a lead vocalist, fiddler, and primary songwriter for the group have taken her to stages across the country, from the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival to American Public Media’s A Prairie Home Companion.

Characteristic of some of the most forceful and compelling voices in folk music, Rolland’s writing succeeds in building worlds of dust and clay, worn pages and weathered pearls, highways and high rises, the faces and hands, the triumphs and disappointments that make up the stories of the past and the present. Her sweet and resonant vocals serve as a striking counterpart to original songs that paint a gritty, though beautifully honest and captivating picture of the human experience.

Selected as an artist-in-residence for the National Park Service Centennial, Rolland spent several weeks at the Homestead National Monument working on what will be her first solo release—an album of original songs based on Willa Cather’s Prairie Trilogy and the stories of early homesteaders in the U.S. She is currently recording and touring in preparation for a Spring 2018 release.
