Art Rosenbaum at Red Light Café, Atlanta, GAArt Rosenbaum, born in 1938 in Ogdensberg, NY, is a painter, muralist, and illustrator, as well as a collector and performer of traditional American folk music. He earned his MFA in Painting at Columbia University and has worked in France on a Fulbright in Painting; he also has a Fulbright Senior Professorship in Germany. Among his exhibitions was the Corcoran's 41st Biennial of American Painting, and his works are in many collections, including the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Columbus (GA) Museum.

He has executed mural commissions at the UCLA School of Law and the Center for Humanities and Arts at the University of Georgia. His solo show in 2000 at the Blue Mountain Gallery in New York was reviewed in Art in America.

His folk music field work in the South and Midwest has resulted in over 14 documentary recordings, several of which are on Smithsonian-Folkways; he wrote and illustrated two books, Folk Visions and Voices: Traditional Music and Song in North Georgia (1983), and Shout Because You're Free: The African American Ring Shout Tradition on the Coast of Georgia (1998), both published by the University of Georgia Press.

A performer on a variety of folk instruments, he has appeared at numerous folk festivals both solo and with groups like the present-day Skillet Lickers, has cut three banjo/vocal LPs and CD's, and has written and illustrated two instruction books on traditional banjo styles.

He is Wheatley Professor in Fine Arts at the Lamar Dodd School of Art, University of Georgia and in 2003 was a recipient of a Governor of Georgia's Award in the Humanities.

Beverly Smith and John Grimm at Red Light Café, Atlanta, GAJohn Grimm and Beverly Smith live in the mountains of North Georgia in the beautiful little town of Dahlonega, in Lumpkin County. For the past 25 years, John has owned and operated the towns music store, Vintage Music, home to a unique assortment of instruments and a gathering place for local musicians. Since 2010 John and Beverly have been performing together at festivals, concerts, workshops and dances across the country and abroad. Their performances feature traditional country duets and a sprinkling of newer pieces. They choose their songs well, and clearly have spent a great deal of time searching through the archives of rural american folk music. Their traditional songs and tunes reveal a deep familiarity with and great love for the genre. From haunting archaic banjo and fiddle tunes to raucous hillbilly singing they display an ease that sounds nothing but genuine.
