The Wiles, formerly known as Ellie Buckland and Isa Burke, are comprised of two fiddles, two guitars, a doghouse bass, and two (sometimes three) intertwining voices. They perform old folk songs, new Americana, and original songs in an acoustic roots style. Buckland and Burke met as kids at a fiddle camp in the woods of Maine and began singing songs together. Their undeniable musical chemistry found its way to Boston, and they started performing together in 2013. Bassist Mali Obomsawin, a fellow Mainer and fiddle camper, joined the band a year later. They bring soul, energy, depth, and effervescent vocal harmonies to honest music that blends the old and the new.

The Wiles have graced the stages of One Longfellow Square, Club Passim, and Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival and were awarded a 2014 Iguana Music Fund grant to record their debut EP.

Italian violinist, improviser, and composer Ludovica Burtone has performed worldwide as both a soloist and chamber musician. A recent graduate of Berklee College of Music in jazz composition, she has been classically trained at the Conservatory of Liceu in Spain and at the Conservatory J.

In addition to her classical training, Burtone grew up improvising in jazz and folk music contexts and since 2012 has immersed herself in all aspects of jazz studies. Recently, she has been working on her own compositions, mixing the warm sound of the string quartet with the standard jazz rhythm section. Experienced in teaching and studio recording in multiple contexts, she currently teaches at El Sistema, a music education program in Somerville, Massachusetts, and she is involved in different ensemble projects in the Boston and New York areas.

The Ivy Age is the folk rock project of best friends and bandmates Tom Freeman and Dillon Rovere. They met when Freeman responded to a posting about an available Boston apartment in 2010, and since then, they have grown together not only as roommates but also into a powerful songwriting duo, with Freeman on lead vocals and guitar and Rovere on drums and percussion. Also known in the Boston indie scene as the founding members of the six-piece folk band Covey, the pair decided to start the Ivy Age in January 2015. Influenced by the Strokes, Young the Giant, and Vacationer, the Ivy Age's first EP, Silver Plated Gold, is expected to be released in the summer of 2015.

Pulling from the three dynamic spirits of the Zahili Gonzalez Zamora Project, a new mixture of sonic masterpieces is born. Mixcla is a play on words and a play on sounds hailing from the mountains of Chile and the traditions of Japan and driven by the fires of Cuba. They achieve a truly unique Latin jazz experience. Mixcla is led by composer/pianist/singer Zahili Gonzalez Zamora and features Gerson Esteban Lazo Quiroga on bass and Takafumi Nikaido on percussion. This mixture of cultural spices makes the perfect recipe for any musical experience.

Oh, Malô (oh-muh-low) presents colorful soundscapes through their eclecticism, inspired by a series of emotions and experiences. Founded in 2014, the band had immediate chemistry and completed the writing of their debut album in a mere three months. Oh, Malô pulls influence from such bands as Bombay Bicycle Club, Radiohead, Local Natives, Daughter, and Jeff Buckley to create a consistently unpredictable blend of timbres and arrangements. The summer of last year was spent recording and refining their songs in anticipation of exciting new releases in 2015.

Watch Oh, Malô perform "Hey, Mr. Paul":
