Hey, Chère!
Hey, Chère!
Hey, Chère! is winning audiences over to Cajun music one barroom at a time. It’s a joyful, haunting, infectious ride that awakens the sleepiest hearts (and feet). It makes you feel good. The front porch–style band features Angela Bowman on voice and fiddle, Sean Colledge on accordion and voice, John Huber on guitar, and Jeff Yonkus on fiddle. Everyone takes a turn at the triangle.

Ethan Kinsella and the Sidewinders
ETHAN KINSELLA After graduating from college in 2014, Kinsella set out to pursue a career in music. He toured the U.S with an Americana band--a two-month long tour that spanned the East Coast, five Southern states, and the North Country--playing at house parties, dive bars, backyard BBQs, coffee houses, church sanctuaries, hair salons, and plenty of busking on street corners and subway platforms. It was during this time that Kinsella more strongly developed his singing voice, as many of the performances were acoustic and unplugged.

Upon returning to Chicago, his hometown, he immersed himself in the bluegrass and country scene, with the intent of finding musicians to start a honky tonk country band. He would frequently attend bluegrass jams, hootenannies, and open mics, where he would sing Hank Williams and his own originals played in a classic country style. Kinsella was able to find musicians to form a band that would capture the "classic" country sound that he so admires. His band enjoys a monthly residence at Friendly Tap in Berwyn, and has most recently released a 5-track EP called Indigo Whippoorwill. Kinsella was the lead in the Hank Williams tribute show "Lovesick Blues" which played in theaters around the country. Kinsella is actively writing and performing around the Chicago area.
Jess McIntosh
Jess McIntosh
Fiddle-driven songwriter and composer Jess McIntosh released her debut album, Long Time Exhaling in early 2017. Ten years supporting other artists as a fiddler, singer, banjoist and guitarist inform her stage presence with easy wit and generous musical sensibility. Bandmates and multi-instrumentalists Aaron Smith and Bill Harris come steeped in avant-garde jazz, classical music, and traditional bluegrass. Together, the ensemble provokes an unrefined balance between familiarity and newness, held together by strong lyrics and melody under the umbrella of alt-country-folk.
