Judah & the Lion

Judah & the Lion is an Americana pop trio with roots in Nashville. Drawing on many influences, the band's folk instrumentation showcases fresh musicianship and powerful vocal harmonies. The band got its start in December of 2011 and exists to create honest and relatable music. Lead singer Judah Akers, banjo player Nate Zuercher, and mandolinist Brian Macdonald present the kind of vocal harmonies that make the heart ache. The group has released two successful EPs, First Fruits and Sweet Tennessee. The latter blasted onto the Billboard charts, hitting the Top 20 in a variety of genres – #2 on Bluegrass, #9 on Heatseekers and #15 on Folk. Sweet Tennessee also made it to #1 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and broke into the Top 25 chart of albums overall. The band has hit the road repeatedly in support of both releases, making the cross-country trek for extensive national tours and playing to sold-out crowds throughout the South and in the group's collective birthplace, Nashville. In 2014, Judah & the Lion released Kids These Days, embracing the band’s folk trio roots and expanding into the territory of new instrumentation from there.

Gilad Barakan Quintet

A few weeks after recording its debut album, Gilad Barakan's Quintet will perform with special guests at Berk Hall. The music reflects Barakan's classical, jazz, and rock background while avoiding the piano's harmonic reign, thus providing space, urgency, and a specific color and tone to the music. The quintet functions as a small orchestra rather than a jazz combo but retains the jazz spirit, with room for improvisation, group interaction, and individual expression.
