Voted: Most Wanted Musicians from Falcon Ridge Festival

Voted: Most Wanted Musicians from Falcon Ridge Festival

The Listening Booth in Lewes, Delaware is delighted to present four very special musicians on Friday, July 21 as part of their concert series. Each year the iconic Falcon Ridge Folk Festival invites “emerging artists” to apply to perform in a showcase at the festival which takes place in Goshen, CT (after many years in Hillsdale, NY). Each year the audience gets to vote for their favorites. There was an amazing group of talented musicians during last summer’s fest and four were selected to return to the fest this summer. As a way of celebrating this feather in all their caps, there is a short tour that goes from Vermont to Massachusetts and then on to Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia.

The four musicians who are playing include Grace Morrison, Sam Robbins, Erin Ash Sullivan, and Phil Henry. All are excellent songwriters and are fan favorites all over the Northeast. Born and raised on the shores of Cape Cod, Grace Morrison’s unique brand of “saltwater country” has established her as a confident, refreshing voice in country-pop. With performances at Nashville’s Bluebird Café and co-writes with multi-Grammy winner Lori McKenna (Humble and Kind) and hit songwriter Barbara Cloyd (I Guess You Had to be There) under her belt, Grace made a name for herself in 2022 at songwriter festivals from Massachusetts to Montana. During this stretch she gained further recognition and invitations to write with Dana Hunt Black (Check Yes or No), Susan Gibson (Wide Open Spaces), and Billy Montana (Suds in the Bucket).

Sam Robbins is often described as an “old soul singer songwriter.” A Nashville based musician whose music evokes classic 70’s singer songwriters like James Taylor and Neil Young, Sam adds a modern, upbeat edge to the storyteller troubadour persona. An avid performer, he has gained recognition from extensive touring and as one of the six 2021 winners in the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk competition, one of the largest and most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country.

Singer-songwriter Phil Henry has always believed in making it himself. As a kid, he was never content to only look at art, but instead he had to paint and draw something new. An avid fan of music, Phil studied the masters in music school but was drawn to the DIY pluckiness of folk music. He concentrated on steel-string guitar and writing his first original compositions.The upbeat acoustic rhythm and melodic sensibility and lush instrumental treatment is no carbon-copy of popular or folk radio songs, but is instead an expression of Phil’s individuality and craft.

Massachusetts-based singer-songwriter Erin Ash Sullivans’s initial foray into music was as one-half of the folk duo Edith O. with Amy Speace. After a hiatus to focus on her family and career as an educator, she returned to writing and performing. In May 2021, she released her debut solo album, We Can Hear Each Other, which reached #10 on the FAI DJ Chart; her single, “Fireflies,” reached #8.

The show at The Listening Booth will be an opportunity to get to know these talented musicians up close and person. Founded by an artist, funded and supported by local music lovers, The Listening Booth is already a place that artists truly love to play. The show begins at 7:00 pm and doors open at 6:30 on July 21.
