The Leveetoppers  (Philly/New Orleans)- Andy McLeod plays old-time music, American Primitive/fingerstyle guitar, ragtime, and drone/experimental music in Philadelphia, PA.

Joining them in the Leveetoppers is Lyle Werner, acclaimed fiddler and old-time musician from New Orleans.

Mark Sylvester (Maryland) - Composer and multi-instrumentalist Mark Sylvester strives to blend the sounds, styles, and instruments of American folk music with the experimental spirit of contemporary classical and art rock music. He performs as a solo guitarist and singer-songwriter, as an accompanist, and as a member of Great Noise Ensemble. His compositions can be heard on his two solo CDs: "New Music for Banjo" (2009), which was awarded the 2009 WAMMIE Award for Classical Recording; and "American Gypsy" (2003), a collection of 15 original pieces for solo guitar.
