The Revivalists – 8:30 pm
Chart-topping rock band The Revivalists are renowned for their live firepower, soulful alt-rock anthems, and their distinct mix of American music. The eight-piece ensemble of pedal steel guitar, unique two-drummer set-up, horns, and more is led by the incredible voice of front man David Shaw.
Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue – 6:30 pm
Troy Andrews first picked up his instrument at age four. By eight, he led his own band. In his teens, Andrews played shows abroad with The Neville Brothers. Fresh out of high school he joined Lenny Kravitz’s band. In the past four years, Andrews banked his fifth White House gig; played on a multitude of albums; appeared in Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways documentary series; voiced the iconic sound of the adult characters in The Peanuts Movie; and released Trombone Shorty, a children’s book about his life.
Mavis Staples – 5 pm
Hailed by NPR as “one of America’s defining voices of freedom and peace,” Staples is the kind of once-in-a-generation artist whose impact on music and culture would be difficult to overstate. She’s both a Blues and a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer; a civil rights icon; a GRAMMY Award-winner; a chart-topping soul/gospel/R&B pioneer; and a Kennedy Center honoree. She marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., performed at John F. Kennedy’s inauguration, and sang in Barack Obama’s White House.
Samantha Fish – 3:30 pm
The 33-year-old Kansas City dynamo she came in at #7 in Guitar World’s “30 best guitarists in the world.” Over the course of her career as an award-winning artist, singer/songwriter/guitarist Samantha Fish has brought extraordinary power to her self-expression, capturing her inner world in combustible riffs, visceral rhythms, and spine-tingling vocal work.
Maggie Rose – 2 pm
After years of honing her chops and making her name as a force-of-nature vocalist, the Nashville-based singer/songwriter has dreamed up her own unbridled collision of rock-and-roll, soul, folk, funk, and R&B. Centered on the stunning vocal command she’s revealed in taking the stage at The Grand Ole Opry over 80 times, Rose approaches her music with more confidence and clarity of vision than ever.
Buffalo Nichols – 12:30 pm
Since his earliest infatuations with guitar, Buffalo Nichols has asked himself: How can I bring the blues of the past into the future? After cutting his teeth between a Baptist church and bars in Milwaukee, it was a globetrotting trip during a creative down period that began to reveal the answer. It was the bustling of jazz in the working-class areas of Ukraine, or in Berlin cafes where expatriate Black Americans routinely treat fans to an evening of blues, that would lead to his a-ha moment. Nichols returned home to America, meditating on his place in the music that holds the country’s truest values and rawest emotions between bar and measure.
Happy Landing – 11 am
An alternative folk band from Oxford, Happy Landing is Matty Hendley, Jacob Christensen, Keegan Lyle, Wilson Moyer, and Andrew Gardner. The group met in Oxford while attending the University of Mississippi. Through various musical influences (alternative rock, bluegrass, pop punk, and more) Happy Landing has developed to become what they call the first-ever “Skate Folk” band, known for their crispy vocal harmonies, creative instrumental execution, and energetic stage presence.
