Jaimee Harris

Jaimee Harris is poised to become the next queen of Americana-Folk, a slightly edgier Emmylou Harris for the younger generation. Her debut album, Red Rescue, draws comparisons to Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams, and Kathleen Edwards – all writers who know how to craft a heartbreakingly beautiful song with just enough grit to keep you enthralled. Harris writes about the basic human experience in a way that is simple, poetic, and often painfully relatable. Harris’ talent has impressed artists and critics alike. Jimmy LaFave deemed her his “new favorite” and Peter Blackstock of the Austin-American Statesman called her “one of Austin’s most promising young singer-songwriters.

Wild Ponies

7: PM
Wild Ponies are a fantastic blend of charismatic charm, deft playing, catchy tunes, and beautiful harmonies, and each performance has the feel of a side-porch jam, complete with a little gossip, some sweet tea, and some neighborly top-notch musicians. Doug and Telisha Williams were born, raised and inspired by the Southwest Virginia mountains where old-time American music continues to thrive. They’re known for their moving songs, hot licks and inspiration and joy all wrapped up in one. While they continually bounce between folk, rock & roll and country, back-home old-time style is at the heart of everything they do.
