July 15: The Barefoot Movement (with special guests Screen Door Porch)
Heartfelt, energetic, and down home! Heralded by CMT Edge as "one of the most promising bands on the bluegrass scene," the music of the Nashville-based group The Barefoot Movement is as down to earth as their intention for members of their audience: sit back, relax, take your shoes off, and stay a while. Crowding around a single microphone, their show is as fun to watch as it is to hear.
SCREEN DOOR PORCH returns to the series with their Wyoming-grown fusion of Roots-Rock, Country-Blues and soul.
July 23: Laney Jones & the Spirits (with special guests Jason Tyler Burton Band)
Raised on an exotic animal farm in rural Mount Dora, Florida, Laney Jones sings tales of love and adventure with a voice that has been described as "a mix of lemon, molasses, gin and gunpowder." Her live performance highlights her multi-instrumental prowess on banjo, ukulele, tenor guitar and harmonica backed by her band, the Spirits.
Pinedaleís Jason Tyler Burton's brings the folk with his full 4-piece band.
August 6: The Appleseed Collective (with special guests The Boom & the Bust)
