Joe K. Walsh & Celia Wordsmith featuring Bobby Britt and Zeo Guigueno
Hailed by David Grisman as a “wonderful mandolin player,” and by Vintage Guitar Magazine as “brilliant,” Boston-based mandolin player Joe K. Walsh is known for his exceptional tone and taste, and his collaborations with acoustic music luminaries including fiddler Darol Anger, banjo star Danny Barnes, guitar hero Scott Nygaard, and folk star Jonathan Edwards. After a number of award-winning years as mandolinist with bluegrass stars the Gibson Brothers, Joe currently splits his time between an inventive string band called Mr Sun, a duo with Grant Gordy, and his own band. An avid educator, Joe is a mandolin professor at the Berklee College of Music and teaches regularly at music camps throughout North America and beyond.

Lead singer of the highly-acclaimed bluegrass ensemble Della Mae, she has toured extensively all over the world, opening for and playing with artists such as Taj Mahal, Peter Rowan and Amy Black of the Indigo Girls. Bobby Britt is a fantastic bluegrass and old-time fiddler from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, currently playing fiddle in the young, hard-driving bluegrass band Town Mountain, which won an International Bluegrass Music Association Momentum award. Zoe Guigueno is a bass player and singer based out of New York City. She is a member of Grammy-nominated Americana band Della Mae, an alumnus of string band Joy Kills Sorrow, and a regular in the New York klezmer scene.
