Folklore Foods is a Berkshire-based prepared meal delivery service and a small event caterer. At Folklore, love is the starting point. From love comes great abilities: attention to every detail, making others feel special, the ability to inspire, selflessness, a sense of connectedness, the desire to continue to learn and grow, and so much more. Chef Simeon Bittman always incorporates the best Berkshire-based ingredients, products, and vendors.
The Useless Cans are a gypsy swing folk punk band from the Capital Region of New York State. Their repertoire of old timey swing favorites, traditional Russian celebration tunes, and driving original music draw on diverse influences from swing greats like Django Reinhardt and Cab Calloway to raucous bands like The Doors and Jimi Hendrix. They are not afraid to step into other genres like bluegrass and the underground DIY culture of Folk Punk. Since their inception, they have been developing a set of original music to inspire the masses to reject the social injustices that plague the world today.
