The Appleseed Collective is not a bluegrass band. It’s not The Hot Club of Paris. It’s not a ragtime cover band. The Appleseed Collective represents Americana music rooted in traditions from all over the world and from every decade, creating a live experience that welcomes every soul and is impossible to replicate. Formed in 2010, The Appleseed Collective has become a force of nature powered by their local community and developed by a strong sense of do-it-yourself drive. In an age of corporations and climate change, the band’s commitment to buying & selling local, eating from gardens, and being their own bosses has led to the kind of success that feels simply organic. Each part of the Collective comes together to form an amalgam of complementary and contrasting elements.Get Tickets
Recently crowned the “best emerging band in NYC” as winners of the 2015 NPR-WNYC Battle of the Boroughs, Addi & Jacq (armed with nothing more than vocals and a harp) have created a diverse and compelling body of music. The variety in Addi and Jacq’s output can be partly attributed to their wide range of musical influences, which they said include everyone from Mozart to Radiohead, Rufus Wainwright to Paul Simon. While some buzz with quick vocals and smart rhymes, others bubble slowly with blended voices. All are grounded by skilled writing, singing, and playing.Get Tickets
