Sorcha Cribben-Merrill & Jo Sorrell and Mike Barth

Sorcha Cribben Merrill and Jo Sorrell - During the cold Maine winter of 2009, jazz-infused harmonies met bluegrass roots in Jo’s small kitchen. Two years later they hit the road with spot-on vocal harmonies and groove driven, genre bending arrangements of original songs and select covers.

Weilding acoustic guitar and banjo, Sorcha “unveils a suite of musical styles that shows a wide-ranging songwriting ability…witty verses with smart rhymes” (Sam Pfeifle, Portland Pheonix) as Jo rolls her classical cello background into funky bluegrass chops a-la Crooked Still and Ben Sollee.

Their live performances are toe-tappingly catchy, moving and downright joyful – from the 2012 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist showcase to Club Passim to the west coast.

Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mike Barth has been active in the Baltimore music scene since 1967. He played in many bands over the years including, the Alcoholics, Dark Side, and Oho before teaming up with John Shock and Paul Margolis in 1989 to form the Polkats. In 1990, Musician Magazine declared them “The Best Unsigned Band in America!”

Barth’s album, Dance This!, is an eclectic blend of rock and roll, country, bluegrass, reggae and ballads. His compositions have been described as “bewitchingly beautiful,” “cooks like cajun cuisine,” and “instant classic.” He currently performs with the Polkats and the Stonehill All-Stars.
