Appalachian Summer Solstice 2019 Performers
Water Witches are a rock and roll curiosity. Their blend of mystically charged folk and gritty psychedelic rock has an unusual way of engaging audiences. Formed in 2015 after years of working together in various projects, Water Witches comprises long-time friends Ethan Bartman (guitar, lead vocals), Charlie Touvell (drums, vocals), and Matt Clouston (bass, vocals), though the trio can often host a wide array of fellow musicians and performers. Sets including organists, guitarists, violinists, and even an irreverent rock-and-roll-reverend add a rich and uncommonly genuine sense of communal expression and musical exploration.
Ohio-born neo-folk for storytelling, nature worship, and drinking. When teatime meets the moonshine.
At times eerily dark and sometimes blindingly light, the project known as Brother Hill crafts and drafts its sound from a plethora of sources both within and without. Sourced from a wide array of travels near and abroad, an original sound that is every bit as reminiscent of Radiohead as it is of Leadbelly with the combinations of Brett Hill’s original lyrics & poetry, guitar, and Irish bodhran, Knuckles’ dark and raging banjo and the Reverend’s lively-while-somber fiddling.

Singer-songwriter Megan Bee writes with an unquenchable wanderlust and a raw love for the land. Her 2017 studio album Like a Canyon received The Ohio Music Awards Best Americana and Best Singer-Songwriter Album. It also won her a finalist spot in the 2018 USA Songwriting Competition. Her music is a blend of distinctly homespun vocals, acoustic simplicity, yearning soulfulness, and winsome storytelling.
Megan’s background as an environmental educator, traveling farmhand, and vagabond once took her into a desert wilderness where she found her voice around a campfire. Her life experiences emerge through her music as a slice of Americana for the wandering soul in us all. She bases out of the rolling hills of Athens, Ohio and frequently roams the country playing festivals, coffeehouses, brewpubs, house concerts, and around campfires.
