Wepecket (wee-PECK-it) Island Records is dedicated to keeping American traditional music alive by recording living masters of the music and encouraging emerging artists to reflect the qualities of traditional music in their original work. In keeping with our motto, all the performers in our family are true "masters" of their craft. They are also involved with the process of finding, learning and promulgating songs of our heritage. Our artists also have interests and careers outside of music ranging from early childhood development, outdoor leadership, and social justice to the environment, ancient languages, anthropology and goldsmithing. In addition, they are much more interested in connecting with their audiences than achieving stardom. In fact, most of them feel strongly that the star system of modern show business is antithetical to making good, honest music.
