Laurelyn Dossett
Singer/songwriter Laurelyn Dossett is one of the most sought-after voices in creative collaborations, she co-founded Polecat Creek with singing partner Kari Sickenberger in 1997. Laurelyn is a frequent performer at regional music festivals such as Merlefest and has been a guest on the radio show Prairie Home Companion. She has toured with folk legend Alice Gerrard and songwriter Diana Jones, and premiered composer Kenneth Frazelle’s song cycle, “Songs in the Rear View Mirror,” in 2010, and has toured with the North Carolina Symphony in 2009 and 2011 and 2013.

Laurelyn's song “Anna Lee,” was featured on Levon Helm’s Grammy-winning record, Dirt Farmer, is included in the documentary film about Helm’s life, called “Ain’t in it for my Health,” and is featured on the 2011 Grammy-winning cd Levon Helm’s “Ramble at the Ryman.” Her song “Leaving Eden” is the title track of the Grammy-nominated recent release by the Carolina Chocolate Drops.

Commissioned by the North Carolina Symphony, Dossett and the symphony premiered her new song cycle, “The Gathering: A Winter’s Tale in Six Songs, in November 2011. She performed with singer and fiddler Rhiannon Giddens of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, legendary Nashville mandolinist Mike Compton, and North Carolina’s own banjo virtuoso, Joe Newberry. The accompanying cd, “The Gathering,” was released to critical acclaim, including top holiday picks from the Wall Street Journal, LA Times, and USA Today.

Justin Trawick
Somewhere in-between John Prine and Jason Mraz lies Justin Trawick, a Washington, DC based singer-songwriter working hard to etch his name in musical history. Winner of the 2006 Emerging Artist Contest at the Takoma Park Folk Festival, he has played repeated performances at DC area venues such as the 9:30 Club, IOTA, Jammin Java, the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage, and more. Justin has toured the east coast and shared the stage with nationally renowned artists and bands like Brett Dennen, Pat Green, Bob Schneider, Blues Traveler, Sara Bareilles, Pat McGee, Ingram Hill, Edwin McCain, Corey Harris, Tyrone Wells, The Hackensaw Boys, The Gourds, Cowboy Mouth, Emmet Swimming,and even KC and the Sunshine Band!

Describing his music as "urban folk rock", Justin has a sound ranging from folk to bluegrass, and even acoustic funk-infused hip-hop. His lyrics are gritty yet sweet, often referencing lessons learned or hopes for a better future.
