Rhonda Vincent & Daryle Singletary - Not since George & Tammy, Conway & Loretta, has there been a vocal duet performance like Rhonda Vincent & Daryle Singletary. Here's your chance to hear this powerhouse duet. Beppe Gambetta - While Beppe still lives in his native Genova, he travels to North America at least three times each year. His reputation in the U.S. and Canada is reinforced by his participation in prestigious festivals like the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas, Merlefest in North Carolina, the Four Corners Festival in Colorado and Canadian Folk Festivals in Winnipeg and Edmonton, as well as events like the radio shows “All Things Considered” and “E-Town”. Beppe has performed in prestigious rooms like the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. In his career he has performed with some great heroes of the folk scene like David Grisman, Gene Parsons, Doc Watson, Norman Blake and with the band Men Of Steel: an international guitar summit (Dan Crary, Tony McManus and Don Ross) of different guitar schools with complex musical interactions. The Wooks - Energetically honoring the sound of traditional bluegrass and mountain music, with threads of singer-songwriter, rock, and jam band music woven throughout, The Wooks are as at home on a festival stage as they are in a barn in the heart of Kentucky's horse country. Jon Byrd - MOJO Magazine proclaimed Jon Byrd's debut recording "Americana the way it was and the way it should be.” MAVERICK Magazine declared Byrd's follow-up “Spellbinding, showcasing a true genius at work." That same year Jon was a featured vocalist on the Grammy-nominated I Love: Tom T. Hall's Songs Of Fox Hollow, alongside Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller, Bobby Bare, and Tom T. himself. So how do you follow that kind of run? By making a record the way the old Nashville outlaws did– by recording the best written songs around, even if they are your friends' songs! Jon's new record ROUTE 41 hits this October and will include songs by Mando Saenz, Davis Raines, Peter Cooper and the Wrights.
