Albert Lee
Albert Lee Remove performer from this event
Albert Lee occupies an odd niche in music -- British by birth and upbringing, he spent the mid-'60s as a top R&B guitarist, but in the 1970s became one of the top rockabilly guitarists in the world, and no slouch in country music either....

Bill Kirchen is best known for his work in the '70s with the rebel band Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen.

Jim Kweskin & the Jug Band Remove performer from this event
At the peak of the American folk revival, Jim Kweskin & the Jug Band reintroduced an essential component into folk music: fun.

Red Stick Ramblers
Red Stick Ramblers Remove performer from this event
Cajun roots rockers Red Stick Ramblers bring plenty of panache to their combination of Louisiana two-step, Texas swing, early jazz, bluegrass, country, and R&B. They may not be honky tonk men, but in the words of Johnny Horton, "they're living fast and dangerously" and they do have plenty of company, as they fill juke joints, nightclubs, and festival stages with their highly charged, musically adventurous presentations....

Eilen Jewell
Eilen Jewell Remove performer from this event
Although her country-flavored and blues-infused version of contemporary folk (which also can include healthy doses of rockabilly and surf) has drawn comparisons to musicians like Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch, Jolie Holland, and the Be Good Tanyas, Eilen Jewell's strongest influences have been the classic sides recorded by Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday (the latter artist is no doubt the source for Jewell's characteristic and surprisingly effective stretched, slowed, and even slurred vocal mannerisms)....
Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys
Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys Remove performer from this event
Popular Louisiana band with a daring mix of Cajun, zydeco, swamp pop and more. They are multiple Grammy nominees and tour worldwide, and are on Offbeat Magazine's list of 20 bands who mattered most.
