Featured Bluegrass Bands 

Snap Jackson & the Knock on Wood Players

These four gentlemen effortlessly blend Americana, Bluegrass, Soul, and Old Time Music to create a unique, fresh and energetic sound. It's obvious from the moment this group takes the stage that they're ready to have a good time. They have been featured alongside such notable acts as Alison Krauss, Old Crow Medicine Show, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Punch Brothers, Special Consensus, Della Mae, Steep Canyon Rangers, and Vince Gill, just to name a few. Whether it's a street corner, theatre, club, or outdoor festival, these boys are sure to leave a lasting impression.

Lidsay Lou & the Flatbellys

Young “rootsgrass” band Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys has jumped into the forefront of today’s progressive roots music movement. Distinct vocals, tight harmonies, instrumental expertise, and creative arrangements are all essential characteristics of their unique sound. Instrumentally, they can turn on a dime, their arrangements showing a well-developed taste in music based on bluegrass traditions but frequently dipping into swing jazz and popular song craft. Their sound is deftly guided by the clarion vocals of lead singer Lindsay Lou.
