JOSHUA MESSICK is a North Carolina-based National Hammered Dulcimer Champion. Creativity flows with dynamic passion as he weaves progressive, cinematic stylings & modern techniques into traditional melodies, original compositions, & powerful improvisations and breathes new life into an ancient, enchanting instrument. A beautiful and captivating listening experience, Joshua�s musical artistry is influenced by Celtic, World, Renaissance, Folk, and Classical music. His new album �Woodland Dance� is an instrumental outlook of the Blue Ridge Mountains. He will be joined be world class percussionist River Guerguerian. HOLLY BOWLING is a classically trained pianist who began playing piano at the age of five. There�s one major distinction, however, that separates her from other similarly studied musicians. That is Holly�s devotion to the legendary rock band Phish. Last year, Bowling released �Distillation Of A Dream: The Music Of Phish Reimagined For Solo Piano� to wide acclaim. So it only seems fitting that she turns her attention to the music of The Grateful Dead for her second album �Better Left Unsung�. "Franklin�s Tower," "The Other One" and "China Doll," are among the songs Bowling recorded for the album, in addition to an entire solo piano arrangement of the "Terrapin Station" suite.
