Jason Isbell Jason Isbell American singer-songwriter, guitarist, and four time Grammy Award winner, Jason Isbell is best known for his solo career and work with the band The 400 Unit. As with Isbell’s 2013 breakthrough, Southeastern, and his double-Grammy-winning follow up, 2015’s Something More Than Free, his most current album, The Nashville Sound was produced by Dave Cobb. The album was well received, winning two Grammy awards for Best Americana Album and Best American Roots Song (“24 Frames”). In May of 2016, Isbell was nominated for three more Americana Music Honors & Awards: Album of the Year (Something More Than Free), Song of the Year (“24 Frames”), and Artist of the Year. He ended up winning Album and Song of the Year. In 2018 he swept the awards winning Album of the Year, Duo/Group of the Year and Song of the Year. Why do Jason’s songs strike us so deeply? What makes this music of the soul? The answer has to do with Jason’s authenticity, his intellect, his rootedness in both tradition as well as modernity. As you listen to this record, you will hear many themes: humor, heartache, wisdom, beauty, hope. But chief among them, strangely, is leadership. Website   Brandi Carlile Brandi Carlile Brandi Carlile is currently celebrating her breakthrough new album, By The Way, I Forgive You, which debuted earlier this year at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Current Albums chart, Rock Albums chart and Americana/Folk Albums chart and Number 5 on the Billboard 200 chart—a career high for the Seattle-based singer-songwriter. Produced by Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings, the album continues to receive overwhelming acclaim, including recent “Best Albums of 2018” coverage at Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, NPR Music and more, and nominated for Album of the Year and Song of the Year at the Americana Music Honors & Awards. Beloved by fans and critics alike, Carlile has performed sold-out concerts across the world and has appeared various TV shows including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Tonight Show, The Today Show, Conan and CBS This Morning. Website
  Felix Cavaliere Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals The message has always been to stand for peace, love, and happiness. For legendary singer songwriter, FELIX CAVALIERE, making people feel good is primary to his illustrious 50-year career that includes the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Songwriter Hall of Fame, Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and Grammy Hall of Fame. Few artists can claim they defined a generation. Early in 1965, Cavaliere formed the ‘Young Rascals’ with Dino Danelli, Eddie Brigati and Gene Cornish. Signed to Atlantic Records, and then called The Rascals released the mega hit “Good Lovin’” which struck No. 1 in February 1966. They followed suit with a string of hits like “I’ve Been Lonely Too Long,” “Groovin’”(No. 1 in 1967), “How Can I Be Sure,” “A Girl Like You,” “A Beautiful Morning,” and “People Got to Be Free” (No. 1 in 1968). The Rascals are considered the best ‘blue-eyed soul’ group to come out of the 1960s, as well as one of the groups with the most record sales. Website Festival weekend passes are currently available for $280.
