BILL KIRCHEN & REDD VOLKAERT – Guitar Player Magazine dubbed him the “Titan of the Telecaster.” Rolling Stone said he’s “an American treasure” and “one of our best.” No matter what you call him, Bill Kirchen is a founding father of the Americana movement, now at the peak of his impressive career. Originally known as co-founder and lead guitarist of Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen, they were one of the first and only rock-n-roll bands to infuse their honky-tonk sound with pure, blood and guts country roots and western swing. He’ll be joined by the equally impressive Redd Volkaert who was a successor to Roy Nichols in Merle Haggard's backing band, and is among the country’s top Telecaster guitar slingers. Volkaert won a 2009 Grammy for Best Country Instrumental Performance.

VICTOR & PENNY – Victor & Penny infuse their music with a strong sense of swing rooted in the riff-driven style of Kansas City jazz to create their own distinctive style. Celebrating a time when style mattered and class was king, Victor & Penny feature tight harmonies, dazzling guitar work and a fiery ukulele. They craft clever original tunes and bring a modern voice to prohibition era jazz with charm and hot licks. Highly recommended for fans of Django Reinhardt, Mills Brothers, Pokey LaFarge.

JACOB TOVAR & THE SADDLE TRAMPS – Jacob Tovar is a man from a different time, a different era. With a gentleman’s handshake, a booming voice, a contagious smile, and a quick wit, this Tulsa, OK performer effortlessly connects with all walks of life through his sincere songs of country, western, and old-fashioned honky tonk. He and his band The Saddle Tramps are a rip roaring time onstage with dynamic interplay between all of the musicians. Highly recommended for fans of Ernest Tubb, Dwight Yoakam, or Sturgill Simpson.
