 Fireside Collective 

The Fireside Collective

Quickly blazing a name for themselves with their progressive approach to American folk music, Fireside Collective delights listeners with memorable melodies and contemporary songwriting. Formed in the mountain city of Asheville North Carolina, the band plays original songs on stringed instruments, intended for a modern audience. "Bluegrass, Newgrass, perhaps Progressive folk…” These are some descriptions mandolinist and songwriter Jesse Iaquinto chooses to identify with. “Depending on where you come from and your experience with folk music, you may think we’re very traditional, or on the other hand, consider us a progressive act. We appreciate both ends of the spectrum and may lie on a different end on any given night.” 

While roots music lies at the core of the Collective’s songs, a willingness to explore the boundaries and present relevant new material remains fundamental. Fireside Collective's energetic live show is building a buzz across the Carolina's as the band's instrumental proficiency, colorful harmonies, and innovative musical arrangements engage audiences and gain new fans. 

The band has released two albums; their 2014 debut Shadows and Dreams, and 2017's  Life between the Lines which propelled the band to a IBMA Momentum Award nomination Best Emerging Band.

Blistered Hearts  

Blistered Hearts

Blistered Hearts combines the classical music with the mountain sounds of the Southern Appalachians. Erika Frazier's sweet vocals & Travis Creed’s salt of the earth songs and instrumentation come together to create a sound that walks the balances both traditional and contemporary.
