Revival: The Sam Bush Story
Tuesday, October 22nd at 7:30 pm
In "Revival: The Sam Bush Story" audiences will discover Sam's story. Labeled the "Father of Newgrass" by a who's-who of the Americana music world, Sam has become the icon of his own genre. From jam bands to the genius of Chris Thile, from the Avett Brothers to Zac Brown, many of today's biggest acts in Bluegrass, Newgrass, and Americana owe a debt of gratitude to Sam, but where does he fit in the new world of acoustic music? "Too old to be young and too young to be an old legend," is how Sam describes himself. While musicians he inspired reach levels of success and stardom Sam never has, his challenge is to remain relevant: one show at a time.

Nashville, Tennessee-based indie folk-pop trio TOWNE consists of longtime singer/songwriter collaborators Steevie Steeves, Jon Decious and guitarist Luke Marshall. Inspired by the likes of everyone from; Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris, Heart, The Killers, and the perfectly imperfect harmonies of Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty, TOWNE landed slots on The Pilgrimage Festival, Master Musician’s Festival, 30AFest, and opened for artists such as; Willie Nelson, Travis Meadows, and Eddie Vedder. In early 2019, TOWNE’s fans came together, organizing two fundraising concerts to finance the recording of the band’s first full-length album, “In The In Between”.
The Talbott Brothers
Saturday, October 5th at 7:30 pm
Blood is thicker than water and there’s nothing like family creating music together to prove it. The two discovered their love of music after digging their dad’s old guitar out of the basement and teaching themselves to play along to Johnny Cash, Bob Seger and the Beatles on vinyl. Nick and Tyler form an alternative sound that balances harmonies with their instrumental ensemble of guitars, mandolin, harmonicas, and percussion. Their entertaining effect on stage is embraced by multiple generations, as they are known for charming and energetic performances that blend singer-songwriter styles with folk, rock, and pop.
Friday, October 11th at 7:30 pm
Mississippi-born singer/songwriter Charlie Mars is a country- and folk-inflected pop artist blessed with a warm vocal croon and a knack for crafting poignant, earthy songs. He has been a journeyman artist with major label releases and high profile gigs opening for the likes of REM, KT Tunstall, and Steve Earle, among others. The Mississippi-based troubadour developed a sonic style uniquely his own. With its sparse instrumentation and focus on transcendent grooves and ambient space, his minimalist approach to music ads maximum intensity to Mars’ already powerful songwriting.
Peter Bradley Adams
Saturday, October 19th at 7:30 pm
Singer/songwriter, Peter Bradley Adams, falls into the category of perfectionists chasing their own perfection. Adams’ brand of Americana nestles his warm burnished melodies with tender vocals that reflect his introspective explorations of the middle ground between hope and heartache and is marked by the calm emotional intensity of his singing. His music has a placid surface, but the soothing melodies and Adams’ low-key delivery run deep to portray the joys and insecurities of the human condition with rare compassionate insight. The result is a sonic scape that wraps itself around the listener like a soft blanket on a cold day.
Saturday, October 26th at 7:30 pm
After critically acclaimed commercial releases, fan-favorite independent releases, song placement on numerous independent films, thirty-plus years of celebrated live performing and songs covered by artists as diverse as Alison Krauss, Waylon Jennings, Sam Bush, Blackhawk, Jerry Douglas, and Dierks Bentley, Jeff continues to solidify his reputation as a creative force in the roots genres. Continuing to evolve as a writer, performer, and recording artist, Black has never before expressed so much of the creative process on his own terms, deepening his work and leaving the listener with some of Black’s most fully formed and resonant music of his career.
