Jocelyn Mackenzie
Jocelyn Mackenzie
Jocelyn Mackenzie is a Brooklyn-based, singer, songwriter, songwriting coach, percussionist, writer, fiber artist and all around maker of things. She is best known as 1/3 of indie-pop trio Pearl and the Beard, who released their farewell album Beast in 2015. The band is proud to have three songs from their catalog featured in Michael Showalter's new film Hello, My Name is Doris, starring Sally Field and Max Greenfield, in theaters in March 2016. The band has an extensive touring history across the US, UK and Canada with such noteworthy artists as Ani DiFranco, Neko Case, Iron & Wine, Ingrid Michaelson, Bastille, Dar Williams, Lucius, You Won't, David Wax Museum, Lady Lamb, The Drums, Matt + Kim, Sharon Van Etten and more.

Mackenzie is a proud volunteer at the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls, for which she has performed, coached, and given songwriting workshops for young musicians. In 2015 Mackenzie collaborated with Emily Hope Price to write and perform music for the independent theater piece All We Have Left, granted by the Jim Henson Foundation and the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center. Mackenzie is eager to release her new EP Unlovely later this year, which features a collaboration with Ani DiFranco and handmade accessories and jewelry for the album's cover art. In addition to her accessories design and music, Mackenzie also knits professionally and has created garments for such clients as Coach, Helmut Lang, Calvin Klein and Edun. Yep.
Woodsheep
Woodsheep
The sound from the mountains of Appalachia has long been swelling at its banks, on the verge of spilling over the confines of folk and electronic music convention. The Woodsheep aim to highlight the diversity, creativity, and storytelling that abound in their ever-evolving eastern Kentucky home by shoring up their own roots.
They have performed at private and public venues, radio, television, and festivals, including the IBMA World of Bluegrass Festival, WYMT, The Purple Fiddle, and Bear Radio Network. The Woodsheep have worked with acts including Jocelyn Mackenzie of Pearl and the Beard, The McLain Family Band, and Jesse Wells of The Wooks. All four members of The Woodsheep have been part of Raymond McLain’s prestigious Mountain Music Ambassadors of the Kentucky Center for Traditional Music.
