Adam Stotland: Combine bluegrass and American folk music with Mediterranean spice and infuse it with North African and Eastern European rhythms and you get a sound that nearly resembles Adam Stotland’s music. Named as a "significant voice in Jewish Music today" (the Arty Semite) and one of Montreal's most beloved performers, Adam unabashedly brings together the disparate styles of music he loves and fuses it with Jewish liturgical poetry and prayer texts. "The result is Irish step dancers, Israeli folk dancers, barn dancers and belly dancers, sometimes in joint choreography. The mélange is a jaw-dropping success." (Canadian Jewish News) Accompanied by some of Montreal's top bluegrass and folk musicians, Adam's vocal performance is powerful yet heartfelt and his guitar work is blazing yet tasteful. Prepare to sing along. Sandcatchers: Sandcatchers was formed in the corner of Cheryl's, a soul food restaurant on the corner of Underhill Avenue and Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. Given the opportunity for a weekly gig, guitarist and oud player Yoshie Fruchter brought in his friends Myk Freedman on lap steel, Michael Bates on double bass, and Yonadav Halevy on percussion to see what kind of music they could make together. Over the course of many weeks, a fresh sound was created blending the Middle Eastern trope of the oud with the dreamy, Americana infused textures of the steel - a new project was born. Featuring original music by Fruchter inspired both by maqam and the Appalachian Trail, Sandcatchers is a beautiful collaboration of sound and souls.
