The Brother Brothersbuy ticketsTwin brothers Adam and David Moss are the Brother Brothers, a musical duo unlike most others. They will be welcomed to the Winter Wind stage at The Depot, 200 S. Jones, on March 12, 2017. Tickets for the 7:00 pm concert are $15.

Already established players and composers in a wide spectrum of genres throughout the NY musical circuit, the Brooklyn based brothers are finally teaming up to bring their individual experiences together, bringing rich harmonies and thoughtful songs accompanied by guitar, cello, violin and banjo.

“While they’re technically a new band, The Brother Brothers have been in this together for life, and their familial connection comes through in the music, harkening back to some of the greatest family harmonies ever made. They approach their poignant and often charming songs with an almost startling sense of ease, and the tight harmonies are enough to send shivers down anyone’s spine. Their ability to pull the listener into their quietly energetic musical journey is a joy to behold.” says Sarah Jarosz (2017 Grammy winner for Best Folk Album and Best American Roots Performance)

Fiddler and songster Adam Moss’ musical career can most easily be characterized by the variance of his influence. Adam loves and plays in the Klezmer, Bluegrass, old-time and swing traditions, which combine into a very unique and innovative style in the performance setting. He is actively touring with Boston’s Session Americana, Brooklyns The Defibulators, Ana Egge, and has formerly toured with Anais Mitchell’s “Hadestown,” and Texas’ 3 Redneck Tenors.

David Moss began his musical journey playing cello and singing in various formats from a very young age. After receiving a degree in cello performance from the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign), he moved to Austin, TX in 2007 where he immediately formed with the trio The Blue Hit. There, David attended the Kerrville Folk Festival, and before long was playing guitar and writing songs. By the summer 2011 he was a finalist in the prestigious New Folk competition and went on to become a winner.

David is also continuing his cello career playing and composing with The Blue Hit and groups such as the Satellite Ballet, Moishe Circus, The Broken Stares, Ana Egge, Roy Williams and The Human Hands. David released his album "Songs for Willoughby" in March 2014, and his breakout hit "Jerusalem" was featured on Democracy Now! in July 2014.

Jake Armerdingbuy ticketsThe Depot welcomes singer and multi-instrumentalist Jake Armerding – named by the Boston Globe as "the most gifted and promising songwriter to emerge from the Boston folk scene in years"-- for a Winter Wind Concert on Sunday, March 5, 2017. Tickets for the concert, at 200 S. Jones, are $15.

It was the early 1980s when Boston bluegrasser Taylor Armerding, co-founder of the band Northern Lights, started his 5-year-old son, Jake, on Suzuki violin. Jake studied classical violin into high school and absorbed bluegrass just by being around the house. At 13, he joined Northern Lights on fiddle and recorded three albums with the band during his high school and college years. He turned his attention to songwriting, and recorded Caged Bird, his first CD, while still in college. Jake remained a member of Northern Lights until 1999 when he left the band to pursue a solo career.

In 2003, Nashville independent label Compass released “Jake Armerding,” a collection of folk-pop songs written over a year living in Music City. Several solo and group albums have followed. The Washington Post lauded Armerding's instrumental skills as "remarkable," while the Boston Globe heralded him "a master at bending boundaries ... his real achievement has been to break the conventions that define country music."

In addition to his solo efforts, Jake makes up half of a duo, The Fretful Porcupine, along with saxophonist Kevin Gosa. Armerding is also a member of Barnstar!, a "bluegrass band for people who hate bluegrass," which includes Mark Erelli, a former Winter Wind guest. Jake is also on the faculty of the Traditional Music Project housed at the Real School of Music in Burlington, Massachusetts.

Recently logging his thousandth performance, Jake Armerding has shared the stage with Bela Fleck, Nickel Creek, Josh Ritter, David Wilcox and Toad the Wet Sprocket, and has made multiple appearances at The Kennedy Center. Jake recently played violin and mandolin as part of an ensemble recording music for the audiobook version of Josh Ritter's first novel, Bright's Passage.
