Best Folk Artist

One Take

Any band that combines reggae, world music, country, folk, jazz and acoustic pop has its work cut out for it — not to mention the simplistic tag of "hippie music" waiting in the wings. Led by the creamy alto and fiddling of Danielle Aslanian and the songwriting of guitarist and singer Daryle Keefer — and featuring Dennis Ward on bass and Brian Corbett on percussion — the quartet couldn't care less how it's categorized. One Take's easy-flowing harmonies, restrained jamming and plaintive but optimistic songwriting are as well-suited for eclectic joints like the Venice Café as they are for the open road to Alaska, a destination the band reached this summer — surely picking and singing at every campfire along the way.
