JONATHAN EDWARDS ~ Vocals / Guitar
Since 1971, Music Legend Jonathan Edward has released 15 albums and been playing his classic hit songs like “Shanty” (Gonna sit down in the kitchen and fix me something good to eat and make my head a little high and make this whole day complete, cuz we gonna lay around the shanty mama and get a good buzz on), “Sunshine (Go Away Today)”,”Honky Tonk Stardust Cowboy”, “Sometimes”, “One Day Closer”, “Don’t Cry Blue”, “Emma”, “Everybody Knows Her”, “Athens County” and more… they’re all songs of passion, songs of insight, songs filled with whit and humor, all rendered in a pure and powerful tenor which, like fine wine, only gets better with age. For his 16th album, Jonathan says, “Young people that are getting back to the land and trying to get off the power grid encourage me. My next studio album will reflect some of those themes.”

KATE TAYLOR ~ Vocals / Guitar
Born in Boston as a member of one of the most famous musical families in America. Her brothers are James Taylor, Livingston Taylor, Hugh Taylor, and Alex Taylor (now passed). James Taylor’s career has been particularly successful. Kate started her first band when she was 15 and recorded her first album at 19. Her second album in 1978 was titled “Kate Taylor” it was produced by her brother James and Lew Hahn on Columbia Records. It was well received, one of the songs was “It’s in His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song)”, which done as a duet with her brother James, it peaked at number 49 on the Billboard charts. Kate took some time away from music, settled down in Martha’s Vineyard to raise two daughters. She came back to the music scene in 2003 when she released “Beautiful Road”. Since then she has been touring in New England, New York, and the Southern states. She was a feature performer at the 2008 Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island. In August 2009 Kate released a DVD titled “Kate Taylor: Tunes from the Tipi and other Songs from Home.” This documentary film traces the Taylor family’s and Kate’s musical history, a journey from Chapel Hill, North Carolina to Martha’s Vineyard.

JAMES MONTGOMERY ~ Vocals / Harmonica
When Blues Legend James Montgomery plays the harmonica, he “brings it on home.” Whether it’s recording with Kid Rock, sitting in with Gregg Allman, or fronting his hot band of thirty years, Montgomery plays with authority. While growing up in Detroit he learned first-hand from the masters – James Cotton, John Lee Hooker, and Jr. Wells at the legendary “Chessmate.” Over the years, he’s carried on in the tradition and continues to be a vital presence in Blues as one of the most dynamic performers on the scene. James has performed on stage with a very long list of Blues and Rock greats including B.B.King, Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Jr. Wells, James Cotton, Bonnie Raitt, Duke Robillard, Johnny Winter Band, The Blues Brothers (Jim Belushi, Dan Akroyd), Steven Tyler, Bruce Springsteen, Charlie Daniels, The Allman Brothers, Steve Miller Band, J. Geils Band, Huey Lewis, Rick Derringer, Barry Goudreau (formerly Boston), Billy Squire, and the list goes on and on… including an impromptu session with Mick Jagger at New York’s “Trax” where he gave Mick a few pointers on harmonica.
