Mahtowa-based singer/guitarist Colleen Myhre put out a note to the world in 2019 with the release of the album Boss Mama.

Collaborations with a slew of the region’s musicians led to the gradual and seemingly ongoing formation of Boss Mama and the Jebberhooch, a band that pushes Myhre’s country soul to new levels with deep grooves and a visible sense of joy.

$25 | 5 PM Gates | 7 PM Concert | Fest Grounds
With its latest album, “Fortune Favors The Bold,” Russell County, Va.-based 49 Winchester is ready and roaring to break onto the national scene with its unique brand of tear-in-your-beer alt- country, sticky barroom floor rock-n-roll and high-octane Appalachian folk. Although it’s 49 Winchester’s fourth studio album, “Fortune Favors The Bold” marks its debut for Nashville’s New West Records — one of the premier labels for Americana, indie and rock acts on the cutting edge of sound, scope and spectacle. Formed eight years ago on Winchester Street in the small mountain town of Castlewood, Va. (population: 2,045), the band started as a rag tag bunch of neighborhood teenagers who just wanted to get together for the sake of playing together.

Luke Callen Band + Pony Folk

$10/00-$80.00 | 6:00 PM Gates | 7:00 PM Show | Fest Grounds
The reviews are in folkx – Luke Callen is a fine songwriter – singer – and player! In an age of quick fixes, flashing screens, and pop ‘songs’ that are more formula than art, an album that takes its sweet time is a radical act. “Also Going Nowhere”, Luke Callen’s third full-length effort is just that – a collection of songs that spread out through time and space, dripping with honest Midwest charm and a mischievous glint. It’s music that you can relax into, paired with lyrics you’ll want to chew on and savor, that ask something of their listener. These songs are proof and reminder: you don’t actually have to go anywhere at all to, you know, get somewhere. || PONY FOLK || Ponyfolk was formed in 2014 by Clifton Nesseth (vocals, strings, guitar, keys, synthesizers) and Paul Sauey (vocals, strings, guitar, bass). Based out of Duluth and Minneapolis, MN, the pair’s multi-instrumentalist abilities and vocal harmonies have carved them out a reputation of creating maximalist soundscapes that are defined by droning layers of guitars, strings, and synth textures - undergirding emotionally evocative lyrical imagery. Aaron Hays (drums) joined the band in 2021. In 2020, Ponyfolk began to release a series of singles starting with their highway-inspired homecoming ballad, Longway. The band will be releasing their debut LP in 2023.
