Bjorn & Francois

The duo, consisting of Bjorn Jacobsen on Guitar and Vocals and Francois Byers on Keyboards, made it’s way into the North Carolina scene after the two met in a local bar while performing the same night. Needless to say, the two saw a potential that they were longing to find in many other previous cities and bands. Catch them touring the east coast or around their present home town, Winston Salem, NC.


 

Leo DiSanto

Leo DiSanto, a troubadour from rural Pennsylvania, has spent the past few years traveling these united states- from Maine to Florida, from Fargo to Dallas- as founding front man of the incendiary, eclectic, award-winning string band Vinegar Creek Constituency (www.vinegarcreek.com). In early summer 2011, Leo released his first solo album- The Moon, A Silver Dime, which resounds with a diversity of influences from Sun Records-era Elvis to Leonard Cohen to Bob Dylan, from country junkyard rock to acoustic folk to  warped, “Felliniesque” (Fly Magazine) circus music.  In winter 2012 DiSanto embarked on a 20-date solo tour, performing throughout the Appalachian South, Gulf Coast, and Texas. With the 2013 release of VCC’s 3rd all-original album, Don’t Go Back In Time, Leo has continued to tour in an ever-expanding range as half of the dynamic Vinegar Creek Constituency Duo, including appearances at radio stations, music festivals, nightclubs, theaters, street corners, barn jams, and venues of all sorts. Described by a songwriter friend as “Lord Byron meets Merle Haggard,” Leo’s galvanizing live performances have inspired comparisons to legendary troubadours such as Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, and Willie Nelson.
