    HOPE FOR AGOLDENSUMMER // (Athens, GA) http://www.hopeforagoldensummer.com/ Hope For Agoldensummer is a family band, living and working in the fine town of Athens, GA. A junkyard-orchestra. An anarchist-soul-choir. For nearly 9 years, this band has traveled the USA creating rusty, gutter angel melodies with a slide guitar, banjo, jangly percussion, glockenspiel, singing saw, piano and a few old coke bottles. The defining sound of the band lies in the frighteningly beautiful sibling harmonies of sisters, Claire and Page Campbell. A FRAGILE TOMORROW // (Charleston, SC) http://afragiletomorrow.com/fr_intro.cfm With an incredible stage show, catchy songs, and perfect harmonies, A Fragile Tomorrow has made themselves known throughout the east Coast as one of the best up and coming bands out there today. The group began as a three piece in the fall of 2003, comprised of brothers Sean (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Dominic (drums, vocals), and Brendan Kelly (lead guitar, mandolin). They shared a love for music and a desire to make it, and what resulted in 2006 was the band’s debut album Wishful Thinking. That same year, a newspaper ad led Shaun Rhoades (bass, vocals) to the band, and they have remained a four piece ever since. 2008 brought the world "Beautiful Noise," the band's second record, which was produced by Grammy-winner Malcolm Burn. THE BARNARD SISTERS // (Charleston, SC) http://www.myspace.com/barnardsisters What do you get when you add a guitar, a mandolin, a banjo, an autoharp, a mountain dulcimer and a musical saw to a sturdy pair of clogging shoes and two singing sisters? The Barnard Sisters! Kara & Pam Barnard were regularly tossed on stage by their Mother's singing group and made several television appearances with them as self proclaimed stage props. Their Mother, Kay Allen is still a performing singer and their late Father, Ralph “Banjo Man” Barnard never passed up the opportunity to be heard by the masses! They proudly lay claim to being descended from a host of bizarre vaudevillian relatives.
