she has toured all over the USA, Europe, + Canada, opened for Smog’s Bill Callahan + was showcased at a festival featuring the Flaming Lips. she has also played for Tulsa Modern Dance Movement + Resonance Women (an organization assisting in drug rehabilitation for women), written a soundtrack for a local award winning film, + played accordion for a ren faire circus.
a pendulum swing from raw + organic as though stepping into an abandoned barn upon a forgotten meadow to ancient + haunting as though exploring castle ruins in a gypsy village. there are elements that suggest eerie swamps of louisiana, concocted remedies tucked away in ozark mountain forests, nighttime among the alleyways of france, or wild prairie lands of the old midwest america. these are all within jes leneè, the songwriter's, roots.
she displays this vividly with her delicate yet intense fairy-like vocals, folky picking + strumming on guitar + banjo, jumping accordion waltzes + dreamy flowing piano playing.
her lyrics are full of naturistic inspiration, global influence, + poetic abstraction, which weave the tapestry together to make a unique arrangement of atmospheric simplicity.
the songs are highlighted by the synergy of musical guests including the extraordinaire, nathan wright (banjo, xylophone, bells, autoharp, accordion, etc + producer of Isabelle), sharla ember (violin, hammered dulcimer), wesly rowe (percussion), jordan hehl (upright bass), + various others who have played on albums of the past.
autumn shade has released 2 full albums, Ezra Moon (strange attractors audio house out of Portland, Oregon) + Isabelle Has Wings (self released) + 2 rare ep's as well as been featured on numerous compilations + albums with Seventh Crow Records + More Than Folk Records out of Paris, France.
Festival of the Faeries is proud to feature Dzevana on the main stage! Their music is an experience that will take you into an eastern-influenced fantasy with uncommon instruments most westerners are unfamiliar with... hand drums, ethnic beats, frolicking stringed acoustic melodies with jolly themes. Dzevana brings PaganFolk to the Ozarks with a unique blend of hurdy gurdy and oud, drums and dance songs. Presenting tunes from across Europe and the Middle East, this trio of long-time TerraNova Tribal performers will have you on your feet and dancing with the fey. More info click here
Featured performer: Festival of the Faeries proudly presents Ashtyn Barbaree, a young folk singer/songwriter with an old soul from Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA. She has a smokey, yet silky voice often accompanied by a tenor 8-string ukulele.
Her self-titled debut album was recorded at the Butcher Shoppe Studio (Nashville, TN, USA) and released April 2018. She spent time in the studio alongside some remarkable musicians!
She performs 300 shows a year across the US and will be doing her first European tour Fall 2018 as an ambassador for The House of Songs. See more about this entertainer: click here.
Skye Pollard! On the main stage. Born in Memphis, TN and raised in the heart of Cotton and Rice country in the Mississippi Delta, Skye realized a natural talent for music and a love of the blues at an early age. Since the first time he stepped foot on a stage at the age of 6, Skye's dream, and passion, has been music. His raw and unbridled sound is an extension of his soul, which he pours into every performance, and leaves a piece of himself in every song he writes. Skye's music is very personal, yet his music has a way of resonating with others as if it had been written just for them. This is one up and coming artist you don't want to miss!
