"A spiritual cousin to Paul Simons Graceland" -Seven Days
From the front-lines at Standing Rock to the archaic streets of Jerusalem, the Sahel Desert to Carnegie Hall, music has been the source of strength for Billy Wylder. The band features Avi Salloway (Bombino/Hey Mama/Avi & Celia) joined by an inspired cast of singular artists who have performed across five continents including concerts at the Coachella, Newport Folk Festival, New Orleans Jazz Fest, Montreal Jazz Fest, Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center. From 2013-16, Salloway toured the globe with Bombino, the Tuareg guitar hero from Niger, Africa. While on the journey and since returning, Salloway wrote the material on the bands new album, Strike the Match (Sand & Gold Records, released 9.7.18).
Salloway has been bringing these songs to life with the Wylder Family, a group of dear friends and musical kindred spirits. In between shows, the band spent ten days recording at Eyeland Studio in the Columbus Theatre, home of The Low Anthem. The music weaves together American folk and rock with sensibilities from the Sahara Desert: think Andrew Bird meets Ali Farka Toure, Pete Seeger and Talking Heads. Strike the Match expands on American musical traditions, building a bridge to their African roots and coloring the songs with experimental art-rock textures: gilded string lines, synthesizers, and angular guitars. Mother Earth is at its center, surrounded by stories of love, conflict, change and dreams.
The band has toured extensively, performing and collaborating with renowned artists including Jack Johnson, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Bombino, The Low Anthem, and Pete Seeger.

After popular shows at Club Passim, WBUR CitySpace and a recent tour in Spain, Alisa Amador and her band (Noah Harrington and Jacob Thompson) are headed to the Harvest Moonshine!
Amador brings her soulful blend of rock, jazz and alternative folk, all wrapped in the spirit of the Latin sounds she grew up with. With her poetic lyrics, and syncopated rhythms, her music is likely to make you cry, laugh and dance all within one set.
Alisa Amador is a pitch-perfect rendition of my wildest dreams. -NPR All Songs Considered
