Brian Griffith will welcome:

Heidi Newfield – 11:30 am on Monday September 14
“A good-timing, honky-tonkin', band-leading, song-writing, love-song-singing, blues-harp-blowing, tradition-nurturing, genre-busting, crowd-carrying, full-hearted flag bearer for all that's true about music. That's Heidi Newfield!”

Bonnie Whitmore – 10:15 am on Tuesday, September 15
“Whitmore reclaims the emotional integrity of sadness with her new single, a dynamic blaze of heavy Americana-pop…. grabbing patriarchy by the shirt collar and screaming truth in its face…breathtaking.” - Austin Chronicle

Mike McClure – 10:15 am on Wednesday, September 16
“Red Dirt” legend Mike McClure finds guidance in the constellations on the introspective “Orion,” the latest release from his forthcoming album Looking Up, which chronicles the last five years of his life and represents a period of renewal for the singer-songwriter.— Bobbie Jean Sawyer – Wide Open Country

Great Peacock – 10:15 am on Thursday, September 17
“Great Peacock makes music enriched by their native South. Influenced by pop melody as well as traditional folklore. It’s old art for the new generation.”

Doug Jayne hosts:

Kevin Russell – 2 pm on Saturday, September 12
“Singer, songwriter, guitarist, band leader (duo's, trios, full bands). Playing bluegrass, western swing, rock n roll, blues, classic country & more!”

Suzy Thompson & Thompsonia 3:30 pm on Saturday, September 12
Thompsonia combines Eric & Suzy Thompson’s deep devotion to old-time, bluegrass, Cajun, and acoustic blues with daughter Allegra’s fresh perspective, creating feel-good music that ricochets between the rowdy and the sentimental, with an abundance of groove and a bit of a quirky edge

Jeffrey Halford – 12 pm on Monday, September 14
“Jeffrey Halford is a rock & roll lifer, a Texas-born, California-bred traditionalist trading in Americana mythologies. His solo album, West Toward South, serves them up not repurposed so much as distilled, harking back to a time when outlaws had more style and panache than today’s suits.” Rolling Stone

Wendy DeWitt – 12 pm on Tuesday, September 15
“Wendy DeWitt with Kirk Harwood play boogie-woogie and blues garnering national and international attention. This powerhouse duo is two-time regional winners and International Blues Challenge Finalists.”

Founding member of the band, The Crux, Director of The Railroad Square Music Festival, Development director of The Lost Church, and co-founder of Social Distance LIVE web concert series. 

Stoll Vaughan – 1 pm on Wednesday, September 16
“Vaughan is in a rarefied class of writers, including John Prine, Bob Dylan, Merle Haggard and Mitchell.” — Ellis Widner Arkansas Gazette

Reverend Freakchild – 12 pm on Thursday, September 17
"What of his music? Like Zen Buddhism, it’s contemplative and esoteric, meant to empty one’s mind of worries and fears and fill it with peace."– Blues Blast Magazine

Dirty Cello – 1 pm on Thursday, September 17
"A five-piece string ensemble that truly pushes the envelope and breaks the barriers, they blend blues, bluegrass and world music sounds with roots in the world of European classical music in a style that is unique and refreshing." - Cloverdale Reveille
