Jamie Kent & Matthew Szlachetka, Friday, June 26th. Jamie and Matt have graciously fit Bristol into their schedule while touring. Kent has no fear of hard work, playing over 200 shows a year including tours with Huey Lewis & The News, America, Foreigner, The Wood Brothers, Marc Broussard, Ellis Paul, and multiple showcases at the South By Southwest Music Festival. For Szlachetka, you can hear it in the dusty, world-weary tone and steel guitar accents of “And I See You Now,” in the way Szlachetka balances aching reminiscences with telling details — the sun on her hair, the smell of jasmine — on “Back Into Your Heart” and the defiant guitar-soaked kiss-off “Threw You Away in Los Angeles.”Matt and Jamie together form a veteran powerhouse duo.
The Meadows Brothers , Saturday, July 11th."Ian and Dustin Meadows are jack-of-all-trades instrumentalists who have come together to create a truly amazing musical experience. Their sound is a throwback to all of the great folk/country/bluegrass/blues that was kicking around both prior to and shortly after World War II, as well as the great folk revival of the 60’s. Oh, did we mention they aren’t even old enough to drink yet?" - CHIP MCCABE, LONESOME NOISE
