Ken Butler (New York City) is an internationally recognized artist and musician whose hybrid musical instruments, performances and other works explore the interaction and transformation of common and uncommon objects, altered images, and sounds as function and form collide in the intersection of art and music.

Peter Head (Palenville) is a self-described “redneck artist, poet and musician” who makes instruments out of all kinds of stuff – and plays them, too. (peterheadhimself.com)
