Detailed festival schedule will be available September 1.
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20th
FRIDAY / MAIN STAGE
The music of Grammy-nominated blues artist Cedric Burnside has been named the best of the best on numerous lists including Paste Magazine’s ‘Top 10 Roots and Blues Albums.’ Burnside’s latest album offers a showcase for his electric and acoustic guitar.
“[Burnside’s] sound on Benton County Relic…is spare, spacious and gritty but with a biting timeless flavor that makes the 12-song set more than just a slavish homage.” —Billboard
“Fusing delta and hill country with elements of jam-band rock, he and his drummer packed an incredible punch, and never let the momentum die down.” —Nashville Scene
Buffalo Wabs & The Price
FRIDAY + SATURDAY / MAIN STAGE
Buffalo Wabs & the Price Hill Hustle are a Cincinnati-based, four-piece Americana and folk band blending the traditions of heroes like Woody Guthrie and Mississippi John Hurt with contemporary flair. Their high energy and passion for the music follow them to every performance, earning them countless fans and local awards.
friday / SIDE STAGE
The music of Nashville troubadour Woody Pines comes from the streets—it was on the streets as a professional busker where Woody first cut his teeth. Pines' music draws liberally from the lost back alley anthems and scratchy old 78s of American roots music, whether country blues, jugband, hokum, or hillbilly—heavy rollicking street performances are central to Woody's intensely catchy rhythms, jumpy lyrics and delirious sense of fun.
Whiskey Bent Valley Boys
FRIDAY / MAIN STAGE
The Whiskey Bent Valley Boys' sound will take you through the hills of Kentucky, bearing all the centuries-old stories, traditions and liquor those hills contain. The band's old-time sound delivers an intensity that would knock the socks right off their forefathers' feet.
Blue Moon Soup
FRIDAY / SIDE STAGE
Blue Moon Soup is an acoustic folk quartet from Yellow Springs, Ohio. The band performs an eclectic mix of jam band staples as well as folk and bluegrass traditional standards. On stage, trailside or fireside, Blue Moon Soup’s music brings a sincerity and spirit to the stage that sweeps wallflowers onto the dance floor.
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21st

The Dip has gained notoriety in the Pacific Northwest for their eminently danceable live shows. Hard-hitting but sensitive, The Dip harkens back to the deep soul roots of decades past while still sounding undeniably relevant today.
