Lindsay Straw is a singer, guitarist, and Irish bouzouki player who performs traditional songs and tunes from the British Isles. Originally from Montana, she began to explore Boston’s Irish and folk music scenes while studying film scoring at Berklee College of Music. Her debut solo album My Mind From Love Being Free was released on May 1, 2015. She has impressed with her tender singing voice and an extensive repertoire that is rooted in the Scottish and Northern Irish traditions, but which also delves into contemporary songwriters like Richard Thompson and Bob Dylan. She has also drawn praise for her sensitive, agile accompaniment on bouzouki and guitar at many a local session and in concert.

She is a recipient of the 2015 Iguana Music Fund Grant, which she will use to record her second album, a collection of traditional songs featuring strong female characters, in April 2017. She was featured at the 2015 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance conference in Kerhonkson, NY as a quad showcase performer, and she has performed on KBCS's Sunday's Hornpipe, KRVM's Acoustic Junction, KMUN's Celtic Aire, and KDVS's Saturday Morning Folk Show. In addition to performing extensively throughout New England at renowned venues such as Club Passim and festivals like the Boston Irish Festival, Lindsay has recently started touring other parts of the US, starting with a solo tour of the West Coast in December 2015, followed closely by performances in New Mexico and a short tour of the midwest with Caroline O'Shea in April 2016, and a DIY tour of folk clubs in Ireland and England with The Morning Tree. She is also in high demand for weddings and private events in the Boston area and beyond.

In addition to performing solo, Lindsay regularly plays with her Boston-based Irish quartet The Ivy Leaf, frequently collaborates with Providence-based duo The Vox Hunters and with her West Coast friends fiddler Darcy Noonan and uilleann piper Preston Howard. She also teaches lessons and workshops.


Armand Aromin and Benedict Gagliardi are musically bound by a shared love of traditional Irish music, which originally brought them together, as well as an eclectic and ever-growing amalgam of songs both inside and far outside the realm of ‘folk music’. With fiddle in hand, a couple concertinas, banjo and a pair of complementary voices, The Vox Hunters present an exciting repertoire of driving dance tunes blended with an unorthodox collection of interesting songs and musical varia.

The Vox Hunters' philosophy is that the search for good songs is endless and satisfyingly so. We don't aim to fuse genres, push boundaries, or redefine 'folk music' -- we simply sing songs we like to sing in exactly the way we like to sing them. Our influences and inspirations are voices in the English, American, and Irish folk music realm, but we allow our ears a long musical leash.
