Musical Guests: Mare Wakefield and Nomad


“You’ll be astounded” says Maverick Magazine about this Nashville-based Americana duo. Featuring award-winning Southeast Texas songwriter Mare Wakefield on guitar and Turkish-born, classically-trained Nomad on piano and accordion, this husband-and-wife duo delights audiences with their mix of Americana, old-time country and contemporary folk. Former Kerrville Folk Festival NewFolk Finalists and Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artists, the duo had a song featured in a 2017 Lifetime TV Movie. Their latest record TIME TO FLY spent four weeks in the Top Ten on the Roots Americana charts and featured the #2 song of the month for February on the Folk DJ radio charts, and was nominated for 2018 Album of the Year in the No Depression Year-End Readers Poll.  

“Musically sophisticated, weaving elements of jazz and bluegrass into their compositions. Don’t pass up the opportunity to see [Mare & Nomad] perform.”  ~  San Francisco Bay Guardian 

“Lovely vocals and even lovelier songs. Mare Wakefield and Nomad are a little bit old country, a lot contemporary folk a la Dar Williams or Patty Griffin.”  ~  New York Times


“Cozy brilliance … The merger of Maria McKee, Natalie Merchant, Shawn Colvin and Dolly Parton” ~ Louisville Eccentric Observer
