sarah jarosz

Since signing to Sugar Hill Records at age 16, Sarah Jarosz has barely stopped to catch her breath, even as she leaves audiences and critics alike breathless. Rolling Stone has compared her to Gillian Welch; Mojo labeled her a “newgrass prodigy” for her skills on banjo, guitar and mandolin; and the normally reserved New York Times hailed her as “one of acoustic music’s finest talents,” with songwriting chops to match her instrumental prowess.

Violinist Alex Hargreaves of Corvallis, Oregon, plays a wide variety of styles and has been mentored by some of the greats in acoustic roots music and jazz. He has toured with David Grisman, Mike Marshall, Danilo Perez, Bela Fleck, Jerry Douglas, and Darol Anger, among others. Hargreaves performs and tours regularly with singer/multi-instrumentalist, Sarah Jarosz, appearing on her three critically acclaimed albums, Song Up In Her Head, Follow Me Down and Build Me Up From Bones (Sugar Hill Records), as well as being featured on her Grammy-nominated instrumental, Mansinneedof.

Cellist Nathaniel Smith's mentors include Carlton McCreery, the University of Alabama, Andres Diaz, Innsbrook Institute, jazz pianist, Jimmy Jarret, and guitarist Barry Leach. Also, Nathaniel attended Mark O'Connor's Summer String Camps where he was tutored by and jammed with Rushad Eggelston, Natalie Hass, Darol Anger, and a host of other A-list musicians in multiple genres. Nathaniel enjoys many musical styles and may be seen as cellist, bassist, and composer performing locally and on the national scene in various genres. Currently Nathaniel performs regularly with Natalie MacMaster, Jeremy Kittel, and Sarah Jarosz.

dave alvin phil alvin"There are two types of folk music: quiet folk music and loud folk music. I play both." - Dave Alvin

“We argue sometimes, but we never argue about Big Bill Broonzy,” says Dave Alvin when explaining why he and brother Phil Alvin, who haven’t made an album together in almost 30 years, were inspired to record ‘Common Ground’. The Alvin brothers, who founded seminal early LA punk roots band The Blasters in 1979, have shared a fascination with Broonzy since childhood. After an illness nearly took Phil’s life in 2012, they resolved to return to the studio and pay tribute to the blues legend. Common Ground’ includes 12 songs that capture a 30-year cross section of Broonzy’s canon, performed by the Alvins’ in their signature style of rollicking roots and stomping country blues.

And they're bringing it all to Twisted Oak. Watch out. And don't say anything about chipmunks.

laurie lewis tom rozumSince forming a musical partnership in 1986, when Tom first joined Laurie’s acclaimed band, Grant Street, openers Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum have recorded 12 albums and performed around the globe. These Grammy-nominated artists (for their 1995 album The Oak and the Laurel) are widely regarded as among the leading lights of modern bluegrass.

And we're delighted to have them back at Twisted Oak!

tim o'brien

In Tim O’Brien’s music, things come together. The uncanny intersection of traditional and contemporary elements in his songwriting, his tireless dedication to a vast and still-expanding array of instruments, and his ongoing commitment to place himself in as many unique and challenging musical scenarios as possible has made him a key figure in today’s thriving roots music scene – and well beyond it. O’Brien’s presence – be it as a bandleader, songwriter, mentor, instrumentalist, or vocalist – has been strongly felt not only in his own rich music, but in the many recordings of his songs by such artists as the Dixie Chicks, Garth Brooks, Dierks Bentley, Nickel Creek, Kathy Mattea, the New Grass Revival, and the Seldom Scene, and in his recorded collaborations with Steve Martin, the Chieftains, and innumerable others. Most recently, O’Brien has been performing before capacity crowds in the band of Mark Knopfler, who described O’Brien as “a master of American folk music, Irish music, Scottish music – it doesn't matter; a fine songwriter and one of my favorite singers.” 


In 2005, O'Brien won a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Folk Album for Fiddler's Green, and received a 2014 Grammy nomination for his recent CD with singer-songwriter, Darrell Scott.

john jorgenson quintet

Music virtuoso John Jorgenson, known for his blistering guitar licks and mastery of a broad musical palette, has earned a reputation as a world-class musician and guitarist who has collaborated with the likes of Elton John, Luciano Pavarotti, Bonnie Raitt and Bob Dylan. In addition to acoustic and electric guitars, he is also regularly featured on the saxophone, clarinet, bouzouki, pedal steel, mandolin, vocals and has garnered recognition for contributing to numerous platinum-selling and GRAMMY-winning albums.

Currently touring as the John Jorgenson Quintet, Jorgenson creates a unique musical experience that equally enthralls the most discerning and the casual music fan. The group’s style has been called “gypsy jazz” after the dynamic string-driven swing created by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in 1930s Paris, but Jorgenson’s compositions draw in elements from Latin, Romanian, Classical, Rock and Greek music, so “21st Century World Music” is perhaps a more apt description.
