The Bluebird Twins
The Joyful Craft of Music Making
Sisters in song, the duo met while entertaining the senior residents at the Little Sisters of the Poor talent show in Clifton, Ohio. At once captivated by the individual talent and abilities of one another, the two began to foster a friendship.
“Brittany sang like a canary, and transmitted so much joy to her audience that I just had to snatch her up!”
- Sara Hutchinson
“Brittany sang like a canary, and transmitted so much joy to her audience that I just had to snatch her up!” says Hutchinson, who at the time was juggling a Master’s program and three jobs and still making time for her passion.
“It’s so exciting: a leap of faith,” says Brittany, who is overjoyed to make musical performance her full time commitment. The Bluebird Twins want their music and their futures to be revolutionary, and open doors not only for themselves but for future performers as well.

In short, the Bluebird Twins thank you for being a part of their adventure and would like you to know this: “Revolution must be accessible to everyone to be a true revolution: we will share our music with everyone, and the support of fans will allow The Bluebird Twins to continue to generate and share the boundless joy that music brings.”
Remedy Revival is a four-piece progressive acoustic band consisting of guitars, mandolin, bass, and a female lead vocalist. We have a unique blend of musical flavors that include quite a bit of blues, folk, and bluegrass. Being raised on Southern gospel, rockabilly, and bluegrass, we put forth powerful harmonies, stompin' southern influenced acoustic rock, and heart gripping bluesy original music. We love to entertain and are comfortable in both a loud, concert style, energetic setting as well as a softer, more intimate environment. Regardless of the venue, we bring quality, heartfelt, and often hilarious performances to all our shows.
Dan Van Vechten
My name is Dan Van Vechten, and I perform as a singer/songwriter living in Cincinnati. I am originally from upstate New York, where cows outnumber people and the peaks in the skyline include the Adirondack mountains. Years ago I would play guitar for hours a day and sing around a hunting lodge with friends or a campfire on the farm. For a while there were bar gigs and the occasional talent show, but the artist had not yet been found. As time went by music was played less and less on that guitar until eventually it was tucked back into the case while a more responsible life was being built.
When I found an open mic by accident on the west side of Cincinnati, I pulled my guitar out and went back the next week. Over the next few months' time, some songs came back and many more were found in the Cincinnati Roots/Folk/Americana sounds. In 2013 I began to write songs of my own and play them alongside the ones I learned in the local scene.
I now play all over the area as a solo act or with the addition of local friends, primarily Will Kimble on mandolin and Johnny Castetter on bass, and my second album, "Get Right" is available for sale as of September 2016. Check out a show or take some music home with you. It'll make you feel right at home.
