Chapel Hill’s indie Americana quartet Mipso – Jacob Sharp (mandolin, vocals), Wood Robinson (bass, vocals), Joseph Terrell (guitar, vocals), and Libby Rodenbough (fiddle, vocals) – release their fifth album, Edges Run, on April 6th, 2018 via a newly inked record deal with AntiFragile Music. Influenced by the contradiction of its progressive home and the surrounding rural southern landscapes, Mipso has been hailed as “hewing surprisingly close to gospel and folk while still sounding modern and secular” (Acoustic Guitar) and was recently recognized by Rolling Stone as an “ Artist You Need to Know.” The band brings a distinctly unique sound – full of wistful beauty, hopeful undercurrents, and panoramic soundscapes.  Venturing ever-further from its string-band pedigree to discover a broader Americana where classic folk-rock and modern alt-country sounds mingle easily with Appalachian tradition, Mipso’s music is lush and forward moving, with lyrics that sear and salve in turn.  Look for Mipso on tour this spring in support of their new release, Edges Run.  www.mipsomusic.com

Red Onion Purple is an eclectic musical outfit based in Missoula, MT. The group has a rotating cast, with core members Bethany Joyce on cello and Sean Burress on guitar. From one concert to the next, Red Onion Purple can be heard playing 1930's jazz standards, creative reworkings of modern covers, and haunting original material. They are accessible yet hard to pin down; at times upbeat and danceable, then mysterious and ambient. Their debut EP was released in the summer of 2017:
