Ryan Leddick is a queer folk/rock artist whose music is rooted in a childhood listening to classic rock and the folk music of his native Adirondacks—as well as anything else he could get to work on his parents’ sound system. The result is a distinctive fusion of life experience, diverse influences and a strong artistic vision. When you listen to his music, you can hear all of that echo in his unique sound. Leddick, who has shared the stage with Damien Rice, Of Good Nature, and Brian Dunne to name a few, is also a formally trained vocalist and has toured the Northeast for the better part of a decade, in both group and solo acts. He’s now based in Troy, New York, and continues to travel regionally to perform for crowds large and small.

Channeling the spirit of classic country, American singer and songwriter Brock Gonyea brings the sound of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Hank Williams into a contemporary country setting with his 2021 debut Where My Heart Is.

Born and raised in Tupper Lake in upstate New York, music surrounded Gonyea as a child; his father, grandfather, and uncle played bluegrass and folk, and passed on traditional songs to him. His love of old-time country prompted him to take on covers of original songs and post them to his social media channels. A cover of Faron Young's "Hello Walls" went viral and caught the attention of Brynn Arens, who flew Gonyea to Nashville to start putting together some songs. A meeting with Big Machine followed and in 2020 he inked a deal with the label. Drafting in some of the best players from Nashville's country scene, Gonyea started to work on what would become his debut EP. Where My Heart Is was issued at the beginning of 2021 and featured original material by Gonyea, as well as a version of an unrecorded Mel Tillis and Webb Pierce song, "All Night Long," from the 1940s.

Internationally acclaimed for their expressive artistry as soloists and chamber musicians, Patricia McCarty and Bill Zito present programs featuring four centuries of richly varied music for viola and guitar (or lute) –  from the delicate subtlety of Dowland to lively Baroque Telemann & Corelli, virtuosic Paganini, romantic Spanish Granados & de Falla, jazzy Piazzolla, and evocative 20th-21st Century composers. The McCarty Zito Duo performs concerts frequently throughout the Adirondack region of upstate NY, and an upcoming recording will be released in 2024.

The Schanzer/Speach Duo consists of Jeffrey Schanzer, composer/guitarist and Bernadette Speach, composer/pianist. Their collaborative works combine the intuition and spontaneity of improvisation with the structure of formal composition. The Duo had its premiere performance in October 1986 at Experimental Intermedia Foundation, New York City. Since that time, they have performed in New York at Roulette, St. Ann's Church, the Knitting Factory, The Stone and Dia Center for the Arts, and in Newark, Hartford, Buffalo, Chicago, Boulder, San Francisco, Seattle, Puerto Rico, Gent and Liege, Belgium, and Cologne and Herne, Germany. Dualities, the Duo's first CD, was released on the Mode/Avant label in January 1992 and was picked as one of the top 10 recordings of 1992 by Robert Hicks in Jazziz magazine.
