Kali Seastrand - The sound and presence of Kali Seastrand can be described as enchanting. Since 2019, she has been intriguing audiences with her use of the mountain dulcimer and her mesmerizing revitalization of folk music. The healing sound of the droning dulcimer with whistling highs and bellowing lows in the vocals, allow her act to feel vibrant and intimate. This intimate vulnerability is a theme in her songwriting as well, sharing themes of her life with poetic transparency. Molded by the mountains of the Sullivan Catskills, her music represents resilience and resourcefulness.
Seastrand has played The Horizon Stage at Bethel Woods Center For The Arts in 2022 and 2023 along with various festivals and venues in Sullivan County. She has performed at the Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple and at the Mercury Lounge in NYC.
Bobby Wood Midwest native and Brooklyn resident Bobby Wood weaves primitive Americana ala John Fahey and Robbie Basho with singer-songwriter tendencies ala Bob Dylan, Bert Jansch and Paul Westerberg. His works are often asymmetrical in structure. The listener will experience a broad presence of musical ideas, giving insight into the technicians’ musical influence from South America, the Middle East, Africa and further on. His lyrical themes are surreal and beautiful, harrowing and humorous and very much off is own mind. From one song to the next, the participant can almost expect to be entertained from the music made by this believable host. Bobby is working on an upcoming group of songs, to be released in 2024.
Arts Nest offers a large variety of entertainment year-round in a comfortable, friendly setting – a fun place for serious artists. Come with your friends, take a table, have a few drinks and small plates, while enjoying the performances.
