Red Tail Ring is the Americana roots duo of Michael Beauchamp and Laurel Premo. Whether rendering a traditional tune or one of their original compositions, the duo infuses each song with musical imagination, haunting harmonies and instrumental artistry on fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin, jawharp and plain-old foot stomping.
Since 2009, Red Tail Ring has released four albums, and traveled increasingly farther in their musical ramblings, playing shows throughout the Midwest, and touring on both coasts. In the summer of 2011, the duo added Denmark to their list when they performed and taught as cultural ambassadors through the American Embassy.
Red Tail Ring's third full-length album, The Heart's Swift Foot (Earthwork Music, 2013), was met with glowing reviews from Americana and roots music authorities. No Depression writes "new music from Red Tail Ring is gorgeous," and The UTNE Reader describes the album as containing "fierce, masterful fingerpicking and poignant lyrical narratives."
In addition to being featured on American Songwriter Magazine.com, The Heart's Swift Foot reached #6 on the FOLKDJ chart for June 2013. The new album presents 10 original songs with two acoustic standards that aim to stretch the confines of what two people can create sonically.
For Premo and Beauchamp, Red Tail Ring encircles their present and future - a place where expansion and creativity meet tradition, and thrive.
Out of the heartland of America, stomping grounds of Truman and Twain, “powerhouse” troubadour Dana Cooper dedicated himself to a life of music over 40 years ago. This song poet engages and inspires audiences around the world with his quick wit, insightful stories and commanding presence. He has performed on Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage and the Kerrville Folk Festival where he was nominated for their Hall of Fame. Cooper’s mixture of flat-picking, finger-picking and percussive strumming style is legend among other guitarists. An expressive singer his voice is ageless evoking a rich lifetime of experience.
His prolific endeavors have resulted in 20 albums. The critically acclaimed Miracle Mile on Compass Records was nominated for a Nashville Music Award as “Best Pop Album” and was chosen by Performing Songwriter magazine as one of the top DIY recordings for the year.
Working with co-producer/guitarist Thomm Jutz, Cooper recently released The Conjurer which features some of the bluesiest, rawest music of his career. Grammy-award-winning singer/songwriter Kim Carnes, who also co-wrote the opening song, “Enough,” joins Cooper on vocals.
Dana Cooper continues to tour the United States and Europe gaining new fans wherever he goes.
Returning favorites to the "Flying Cat" stage, two of the members of New Augusta Bluegrass Band have been our good friends for more years than we can count!
New Augusta Bluegrass Band plays regularly at Upland Tasting Room and other central Indiana venues. Driving Bill Monroe bluegrass songs, plus country blues & fiddle tunes are the primary elements of a evening with NABB, but they're just as likely to include newgrass, old-time, gospel, honky-tonk, swing, and some singer-songwriter stuff, for good measure -- and have the audience singing along on old favorites.
