Woven Green will open Friday night's plenary session with David Korten and Tina Clarke, and will perform on the Solar Stage during the weekend. The six musicians that comprise Woven Green have created an original sound with elements of rock, folk, funk, fusion, and world music addressing themes of nature, love, awakening, and empowerment. Wildy's World says, "Woven Green is a bit off the beaten path; creating wonderfully addictive Pop/Folk/Rock songs with highly unusual subject matter. . . The band sings their beliefs and is obviously looking to change the world through their music. . . Ashley Cash is going to get comparisons to Grace Slick, among others, and her voice is well-deserving of praise. Jim Cash's songwriting is also superb; nuanced and complex without ever overdoing on either quality." The band's debut album has been nominated for a Washington Area Music Award (“Wammie”) in the pop-rock category. Their song "Sixth Sun" received first prize in the Relix Magazine 2010 Jam Off Competition and was awarded honorable mention in the 27th Annual Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest.
