Art Rosenbaum
Art Rosenbaum has been collecting, writing on, and performing traditional American folk music for nearly 60 years. His Dust-to-Digital boxed set, "Art of Field Recording, Vol. I" received a Grammy for Best Historical Recording. Art plays banjo, fiddle, and guitar, and sings mountain music, ballads, blues, and more. He has written three books on the Georgia folk music he has collected, as well as three instructional books/recordings on traditional banjo playing. 

Around the Globe Sea Chantey Singers
For the last several years Art Rosenbaum has worked with younger singers in the Around the Globe Sea Chantey Singers who have sung chanteys, the fine work songs from the great age of sail, mostly at the Globe pub in Athens; but occasionally at venues like the Ships of the Sea Museum in Savannah, and at the Charleston SC Maritime Festival. Most of the singing is a cappella, and the group sings several Southern chanteys of the cotton-shipping ports which blend African American and Yankee/British traditions. 

Dust-to-Digital House Band
The Dust-to-Digital House Band will be presenting their unique blend of roots based fusion on a variety of instruments such as melodica, banjitar, vibraphone and cello. Joining Mick and Evan Kinney will be the legendary jazzman Dub Hudson on sax, clarinet, and flute.

Georgia traditional artists known for their early 20th century stringband recreations as well as original projects, Mick and Evan Kinney have performed and studied with legacy artists such as 1920s Columbia sessions musician Stranger Malone, and Atlanta bluesman Frank Edwards. Still going strong in his eighties with a traditional jazz band, The Peachtree Strutters, clarinetist Dub Hudson has also played sax and flute with a virtual Who's Who of R&B and Jazz including Sam Cooke and Lena Horne. 

Lonnie Holley
Since 1979, Lonnie Holley has devoted his life to the practice of improvisational creativity. His art and music, born out of struggle, hardship, but perhaps more importantly, out of furious curiosity and biological necessity, has manifested itself in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, performance, and sound. His music and lyrics are improvised on the spot and morph and evolve with every event, concert, and recording. 

Jake Fussell
Jake Fussell grew up in Columbus, Georgia, and was exposed to traditional roots music while accompanying his father, folklorist and writer Fred Fussell, on numerous documentary fieldwork trips throughout the South. Through these journeys, Jake became a guitar student of the late Georgia blueswoman, Precious Bryant, and honed his skills playing with local string bands.

Jake currently serves as bandleader of The Yalobushwackers, the house band for Thacker Mountain Radio, Oxford, Mississippi’s weekly live-audience literary radio program. In recent years, he has appeared on Prairie Home Companion, toured, and recorded as sideman for several musical acts, most notably as guitarist for Memphis gospel singer Reverend John Wilkins.


PLUS Special Guests and DJs


Kevin Byrd
I'll Fly Away
Floating abstract light sculpture. Linear fluorescent light fixtures suspended in a roofless warehouse.

Rachel Garceau
Rachel Garceau is a ceramicist and sculptor.  Her piece is a walkway of ceramic black and white bricks that spell out words in Morse code.

Bojana Ginn
Bio-Mathic, Video
1729, Mixed media sculpture
Bojana Ginns' work utilizes and explores the concepts of evolutionary biology and biomathematics, from the mechanisms of self-replication to the surprising discoveries of mathematical logic inside biological systems. Her installation has two videos that will be projected onto two sculptural pieces. The videos will cover the sculptures, flowing around them and onto the walls behind, creating unexpected distortions and shadows.

Jessica Miller
Jessica Miller’s “Wigwams” are molded forms with lights that represent dwellings. She amasses wax, fabric and plaster to create habitats and employ artifacts of women’s work to emphasize the theme of feminine endeavors. The ideas of static vs. evolving domesticity and antique femininity through a contemporary lens, are ones she fabricates by using these materials, inviting the viewer to taste the textures of history created by compounding heirloom feminine creations.


Megan Mosholder + Pablo Gnecco
Megan Mosholder and Pablo Gnecco have collaborated on “Terminus,” is multi-media, site-specific installation referencing Atlanta’s history as rail hub for the Midwestern United States and also New York City’s subway system. The audience directly interacts with the piece, walking through “Terminus” to see the comparison of the two cities’ transportation past, present and future. The 20' long structure is full of repetitive designs created with light reactive strings, and the front facade shows a video created by Pablo.

Erin Palovick
Arriving from Always
Erin Palovick is a multi-talented artist who creates drawings, paintings, videos and performances. Her video, “Arriving from Always,” is full of beautiful abstractions of light and motion, giving a sense of weight that is formless and unobtainable.

Wret Rausaw
The Doors of the Church are Open  
Wret Rausaw is an Atlanta-based mixed media artist whose work deals with elements of family and home. His installation, “The Doors of the Church are Open,” is a miniature church that examines the significance of southern black church rituals. Filled with sound and video, the structure has front doors that are slightly open to reveal part of the video that is projected on the interior back wall. Holes and cracks in the structure provide viewing areas.

Jessica Scott-Felder
Jessica Scott-Felder utilizes antique objects to transform spaces into psychological experiences suggestive of maternal figures and ancestral & social narratives. Through the use of historical narratives, her work embraces issues in identity, heritage, culture and society’s rapidly disintegrating connection to the past. In “Place/Setting” Jessica uses recycled living room chandeliers to reference the ancestors’ navigation through constellations.

Tommy Taylor
Tommy Taylor is an Atlanta-based painter and filmmaker, represented by Whitespace gallery. His video is called, “Shadowland,” was conceived, shot and edited by Tommy while in residence as a Distinguished Fellow at the Hambidge Art Center in October, 2013. Moody and mysterious, the film explores irrational fears, the unconscious, and the split psyche.

Ben Wills
Paper Airplanes
Ben Wills has been corresponding with inmates serving life sentences. “Paper Airplanes” is an installation of paper airplanes constructed by the inmates. Each airplane represents the inmate who created it. The project is a way of giving them access back into society.
