Johnny Nicholas
September 9
For four decades Johnny Nicholas's consummate musicianship and vocal skills have graced live music scenes across the country and abroad. He has toured, performed and recorded with many true blues and Americana Roots Music legends including: Mississippi Fred McDowell, Big Walter Horton, Roosevelt Sykes, Eddie Taylor, Billy Boy Arnold, Hound Dog Taylor, Johnny Young, Houston Stackhouse, and Boogie Woogie Red.

He recorded and toured with Johnny Shines and Snooky Pryor, producing and playing guitar on their W.C. Handy Award-winning album Back to the Country. He was a lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist with Asleep at the Wheel when they won their first of many Grammy Awards. The common thread between all these influences is that of a true storyteller and troubadour, a living connection to the roots of American music that started in the Mississippi Delta and continues to flow down the river of traditional and contemporary sounds that emanate from Johnny Nicholas.

Grace Pettis Band
September 10
With stories in her soul, a dash of courage, and a smile that melts walls, Grace Pettis is busy doing what she was born to do. The life of an independent touring artist is tough, but somehow she makes it look easy. In her short career, she has built a reputation as a respected songwriter among artists, industry, and fans. Her highly anticipated second album "TWO BIRDS" has received excellent reviews. Maverick Magazine featured a FIVE STAR review of her new album in their October edition. This sophomore album is a culmination of years of writing, touring and surviving as an independent artist.​ She splashed onto the music scene winning NPR's Mountain Stage NewSong Contest, where her, "Nine to Five Girl" was selected for Best Song honors.

Grace carried this momentum when she performed as an Official Showcase Artist, at the 2010 International Folk Alliance conference, where she captured the attention of presenters and radio programmers as a young standout. Later that spring Grace won the Wildflower! Performing Songwriter Contest Grand Prize, and the People's Choice award. Grace's collection of accolades and years of touring led to her hugely successful fundraising campaign for her sophomore album TWO BIRDS. Grace continues to tour the country sharing her musical gifts with those who will listen.​
