"A moving display of fragility and surrender, Cloudbelly’s debut single “Up in Smoke” weaves wondrous and haunting indie folk into a seismic outpouring of intimate emotion." - Atwood Magazine (2022 Artist to watch)

AMONG THE NEWEST MEMBERS OF THE SIGNATURE SOUNDS FAMILY, LAITMAN’S POETIC LYRICISM, STIRRING VOCALS AND DISARMING STAGE PRESENCE HAVE EARNED THEM A STRONG AND GROWING FOLLOWING IN THE PIONEER VALLEY AND BEYOND. THEY ARE ACCOMPANIED BY A ROTATING CAST OF INSPIRED INSTRUMENTALISTS AND FRIENDS.
Fellow Pynins is an Ashland, Oregon based award winning contemporary folk duo with a keen and bucolic sense of vocal harmony and song craft anchored in the balladry tradition. The duo consists of Dani Aubert (claw-hammer banjo, bouzouki) and solo artist Ian George (guitar, mandolin). They are songwriters, collectors, and interpreters. Since 2016 the duo has toured the US incessantly and has gathered significant traction in the UK/Ireland, gracing festivals such as Cambridge Folk Festival, Wilderness Festival, Omagh Bluegrass Festival, and selling out legs of their most recent UK/Ireland tour. In 2019 they were named by NPR’s Bob Boilen as one of the best Tiny Desk submissions and the same year won the Minnesota Bluegrass & Old-Time duet competition. In 2020/2021 the duo relocated from Minneapolis, MN back to Oregon to build (learning every step of the way) two tiny houses on wheels for their family, which they now live in.
On May 20, 2022 Fellow Pynins released their sophomore album Lady Mondegreen while officially showcasing at the 2022 Folk Alliance International Conference in Kansas City. Lady Mondegreen, recorded live over 10 days in December 2021 at their off-grid tiny house dwelling in the mountains of Oregon, is an ode to their love and reverence for traditional music. All songs on the album were learned person-to-person from various individuals they met whilst traveling with their two children over a 10 month song collecting trip through Europe/UK/Ireland in their transformed camper van “Big Blue.” The album showcases their “strong vocal harmonies” (- Smithsonian Folkways), instrumental prowess, and adventurous arrangements quintessential to the Fellow Pynins rustic sound. The duo’s sophomore album is being received with remarkably positive reviews. Songlines states “Lady Mondegreen is an exquisitely harmonised treasure trove of imaginatively reinterpreted, historically significant acoustic music” while Paul McGee of Lonesome Highway stated it as one of the best folk albums of the year. There is additional instrumentation on the album from players from Ireland, London, NYC, Boston, and Minneapolis.
