About The Music

Organ Fairchild

Debuting exactly one month before the pandemic began, Organ Fairchild has made a remarkable splash in a short amount of time.

After their debut single “Seepin’” landed the group on the Jambands.com Radio Charts Top 30 List in February, they were voted #1 out of 64 original bands statewide in the NYS Music March Madness competition.

Their prize? Travel to Saratoga Springs for a pro-shot live stream with moe.’s Vinnie Amico sitting in on drums and percussion.

Summertime club and festival performances culminated in a mainstage performance at the Borderland Music + Art Festival alongside Jason Isbell, The Revivalists, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, TAUK and more.

That same week, the trio’s debut album “Brewed in Buffalo” was released worldwide on CD and all major digital outlets, landing the group a front-page feature article in the Buffalo News and sparkling reviews from media outlets in the US and UK.

Individually, these veteran musicians have performed in projects and one-offs with Bob Weir, Rob Wasserman, Robbie Krieger, Nels Cline, Tony Rice, moe., Oteil Burbridge, Steve Kimock, Keller Williams, Strangefolk, Gibb Droll, Big Leg Emma, Juggling Suns and more.

But since 2020, they’ve been joined together in the pursuit of groovy tunes and juicy jams in a high-powered organ trio format.

Seriously, get ready to get down with Organ Fairchild!

Joe Bellanti – organ and keyboards
Corey Kertzie – drums and percussion
Dave Ruch – guitar

Folkfaces

Folkfaces is New York state based roots music quartet. Folkfaces play a mix of original and traditional music. The group takes its influence from weird old american music. An energetic variety show and traveling music review. Exploring a wide range of genres including country blues, traditional jazz, rock and roll, honky tonk, western swing, bluegrass and oldtime, jugband music and more. 

 

The music is driven by songwriter and frontman, Tyler Westcott (Vocals, Guitar, Banjo, Harmonica, Kazoo) who founded the band in 2011. The rest of the band has taken many forms over the years, but the current lineup includes multi-instrumentalist and fiddler Brendan Gosson, upright bass player, Patrick Jackson, and percussionist Dan Schwach on drumkit and washboard. Each of the band’s members come from different musical backgrounds, but find common ground in the rare and captivating sound of Folkfaces.

 

Folkfaces keeps a busy playing schedule, performing at music festivals, colleges, and touring extensively. Folkfaces has shared the stage with many notable acts, including The Felice Brothers, Dustbowl Revival, Tab Benoit, The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Peter Rowan, and Dom Flemons.
