Armand Aromin and Benedict Gagliardi are musically bound by a shared love of traditional Irish music, which originally brought them together, as well as an eclectic and ever-growing amalgam of songs both inside and far outside the realm of ‘folk music’. With fiddle in hand, a couple concertinas, banjo and a pair of complementary voices, The Vox Hunters present an exciting repertoire of driving dance tunes blended with an unorthodox collection of interesting songs and musical varia.

The Vox Hunters' philosophy is that the search for good songs is endless and satisfyingly so. We don't aim to fuse genres, push boundaries, or redefine 'folk music' -- we simply sing songs we like to sing in exactly the way we like to sing them. Our influences and inspirations are voices in the English, American, and Irish folk music realm, but we allow our ears a long musical leash.

Outrageous Fortune is a Boston-based acoustic vintage jazz and blues trio. Their repertoire features innovative arrangements of early jazz (Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong); blues and jug band music (Robert Johnson and the Memphis Jug Band).

The trio is Chris Welles on guitar; Rod Thomas on harmonica; and Dan Dick on upright bass, washboard, dobro and jug. Audiences are wowed by their instrumental virtuosity, and are delighted by their smooth three-part vocal harmonies, their strong groove, and the abundant joy that infuses every performance. Outrageous Fortune has been bringing smiles to New England audiences since 1998 at coffeehouses, festivals, clubs, public libraries, and private events.

Gogofski plays music of the Balkans.  Not the loud and fast brass of Goran Bregović.   Not the massive thirty-voice choir of Mystère des Voix Bulgares.   We bring you other great music from the Balkans, from the complex dance rhythms of Macedonia to the heart-wrenching Sevdah song tradition of Bosnia.
 
Gogofski plays for a dance evening the way they do in the old country: the musicians on the floor playing right in front of you, to you, for you.  And a Gogofski club evening gives you a feast of comic songs and intimate ballads, traditional and modern, and brings you to understanding, to sharing, and to feeling.
 
Kasia Sokalla, vocals, graduated with honors from Berklee.  Dave Golber has studied clarinet with masters inMacedonia for years.  Gawain Thomas is a long-time student of Bulgarian accordion virtuoso Ivan Milev.  And Henry Goldberg is the drummer the touring Bulgarians want to play with them.
