SHELBY BOTTOM STRING BAND

"Whether waxing nostalgic about bygone days or lamenting the contemporary scourge of mountain top removal, the new-fashioned old-time music of the Shelby Bottom String Band is awash in humanity, humor and insight – all of it wrapped in a warm pocket of nimble down-home rhythms. East Nashville's best-kept, most danceable secret."

- Bill Friskics-Warren, contributor to New York Times and Washington Post

 

INDIA RAMEY

India Ramey is an Americana artist from Birmingham, AL. The granddaughter of a Sand Mountain bluegrass and gospel musician, India was born with music in her blood. India's sound and voice conjure classic country and with its southern gothic themes, haunting lyrics, driving rhythms and powerful vocals, "Blood Crescent Moon" tells tales from love, to loss, to revenge.

 

STEPHEN SALYERS

Stephen Salyers is a singer-songwriter who's been performing since the age of 12. He's opened shows for artists such as Ronnie Milsap, Wynonna and the Doobie Brothers. As a philanthropist, he's raised over $250,000 for his foundation for needy and battered children.
