About Mary Hood
Mary Hood is a rising voice from a digital generation singing about old-school themes like loneliness, love, loss, and longing with a twisting acoustic guitar and a reedy, soulful voice. Her music stands alone, but her main influences—Fiona Apple and Shakey Graves—can be heard in her raw and resonant style, while others have compared her lyrics and storminess to acoustic legends Elliot Smith and Nick Drake.
Mary performed at Pleasantville Music Festival in summer of 2017, her name in the lineup with well-known artists Suzanne Vega, Blues Traveler, and Living Colour. She has also performed at other festivals and venues in the Hudson Valley area and New York City, including Newburgh Illuminated Festival, The Bitter End, and the Towne Crier.
Mary’s hypnotic sound captivates an audience while her unique fingerpicking weaves through each lyric, creating a musical storyline all its own.
About Lissa Kiernan

Her individual poems have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net. She holds an MFA from the Stonecoast program at the University of Southern Maine and an MA from The New School.

About Becoming Human
Vocalist/guitarist/percussionist Marji Zintz fronts Becoming Human, a newly formed trio (and sometimes quartet), which performs music composed by guitarist Jim Kunkel and bassist Mickey Kopchak. They explore and inhabit many genres across the musical spectrum, from folk to jazz, modal to avant-garde, spiritual to classical to Brazilian. They honor the space and each other’s unique and evolving “voice,” creating and holding a fertile ground for conversation, interplay, improvisation, and emotion. “If Flora Purim and Pat Matheny had a baby, this is what it would sound like.” (Fran P.)
