John McCutcheon

John McCutcheon’s first award-winning song was entitled “The Ponderosa No-Cream-in-My-Coffee Blues”, penned at the greasy spoon of the same name in his Wisconsin hometown. He was all of 15 years old and it won him his high school talent show. 

“My best friend claims that he still has a cassette of the song,” McCutcheon recently disclosed, “and if we ever have a serious falling out it’s going right up on YouTube.”

Since those early creative days McCutcheon’s thirty-six albums have earned 6 Grammy nominations while his hundreds of eclectic songs have garnered more than his share of accolades, with his song “Christmas in the Trenches” considered a classic and recently named one of the 100 Essential Folk Songs.

Annalise Emerick

2016 Kerrville New Folk Finalist!

Gathering material from her life experiences and seemingly infinite travels, Annalise conceived the aptly named “Field Notes,” her debut, full-length album and subsequent road diary. 

Recorded with her heart on her sleeve and a collection of autobiographical tunes in her pocket, the album exhibits the raw vocals and heartfelt lyricism that have situated her among fans of Brandi Carlile, Patty Griffin, and Natalie Maines alike. 

For “Field Notes”, it’s Annalise’s effortless aptitude to blend pop songwriting sensibilities with pristine Americana overtones that really shines through, highlighting her incredible penchant for spinning tales both uniquely personal and universally recognizable.

The Kennedys

Pete and Maura Kennedy, both East Coast natives, met in Austin, Texas, joined forces with Nanci Griffith’s Blue Moon Orchestra for a couple of years, and set out on a road that, for two decades, has led them not only west but all over the US and the UK many times.

Now celebrating their twentieth anniversary both as a band and a married couple, Pete and Maura have released a new album, “West,” an instant Kennedy’s classic seamlessly weaving together their influences over the last two decades: Buddy Holly-style roots, the tuneful cadences of the Everly Brothers, and the ringing 12-string jangle of the early Byrds, all interspersed with darker moments that recall British folk rock a la Fairport Convention.
“The Kennedys are worthy of the title First Couple of American Folk and Americana.”
Lee Zimmeraman - No Depression

The Ladles

The Ladles, who come highly recommended from Dinty of Session Americana, have three-part female harmony perfected - but their sound is more than that. 

They are an amalgamation of their respective histories and influences, blending Swing, Old-Time, Neo-Soul, and Choral music into a sound all their own. Using solely acoustic instrumentation and three incredible voices, they create a dreamy, otherworldly atmosphere that draws audiences in and demands attention. 

They quiet noisy bars and liven up staid concert halls, so just imagine how great they’ll sound in a venue like the Stoltz!

Native Harrow

“…spectral folk-pop atmospherics created by dreamy lead guitar melodies, stretched rhythms, and reverby vocals.” The Modern Folk Music of America

Native Harrow is a thinking woman’s folk music…recommended if you like the music of late ‘60s Laurel Canyon (Joni Mitchell, CSN&Y), the chill of Nick Drake’s somber beauty, as well as the contemporary folk of Laura Marling.

The sonic palette of her new double album, “Sorores”, also integrates influences as diverse as ‘60s art rock, Hindustani classical music, ‘00s English folk, New York avant-garde jazz, ‘60s jazz pop, ‘80s indie rock, and so much more.

In her own words, “The songs of ‘Sorores’ reflect changes of heart, growth of soul, struggles in my hunt to find life’s magic, and my exploration of the vast world of sounds.”

Whiskerman

Oakland-based band Whiskerman, known in the San Francisco Bay Area for their often raucous shows, is routing east for FloydFest this summer and will be making a stop in our own Bay Area to promote their brand new release, “Champions”!

Fronted by Singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Graham Patzner, Whiskerman utilizes the structure of a classic rock band to convey a timeless familiarity, luring the listener into a new mythological landscape with a story for our time.

Whiskerman has gone through basically all of the growing pains a band can go through, from their folkier self-titled first album to their soul-driven EP, “Bad News”, produced by Tony Berg (Weezer, Andrew Bird). They maintained a working man’s-band approach the whole time from playing dives to dance halls, festivals and grocery stores (don’t ask), and managing to produce their second album “Nomad”, produced by Jeff Saltzman (The Killers, Blondie).

Drummer Nick Cobbett, lead guitarist/sitarist Charles Lloyd, and bass player Will Lawrence, all active members of this growing machine for five years, bring a tight groove, powerful dynamics and virtuosic chops to the landscape of Patzner’s songs.

Deana Carter

Drenched in sun-kissed natural beauty both inside and out, Deana Carter didn’t take a seemingly easy route to stardom, but instead chose to defy the conventional expectations of the typical Nashville artist blueprint and make her own mark. 

And she did, undeniably taking the industry and fans by storm with her wildly successful multi-platinum international debut Did I Shave My Legs For This? more than a decade ago. Anchored by the dreamy super hit “Strawberry Wine”, Carter showcased her own blend of country and retro-rock sprinkled with the folksy singer/songwriter qualities that have garnered Deana Carter well-deserved respect and wild acclaim.

Today, as she tours with her acoustic trio and readies her latest bundle of uniquely crafted tunes for upcoming release on Southern Way of Life, Carter explores many subjects commonly shared over a quaint dinner, afternoon coffee or a sunny day hike with a good friend.

Rachel B

“Her set was brimming with sass, playful energy and unquestionable talent. One moment she was giggling about ripping pantyhose and teasing her guitar player, next belting out originals ‘I’m the Boss’ and ‘Vicious’. I’m all about lady-power so needless to say I was into the equally flirty and ferocious set.” --Carnegie Mellon's The Cut Magazine

Based in Pittsburgh, Rachel B is a singer-songwriter thriving with her self-appointed genre of soul empowerment pop, blending vivacity and uplifting melodies with hints of sass.

She draws much of her inspiration from the likes of Amy Winehouse, Ella Fitzgerald, and Minnie Riperton. Her charismatic delivery and witty musings strive to connect with her listeners coupled with melodic and uplifting undertones.

Karen Jonas’s intensely personal songwriting first grabbed national attention with the release of her critically acclaimed 2014 debut album “Oklahoma Lottery”. 

Three years of non-stop touring with her guitarist Tim Bray have produced a smoldering live act that’s left audiences breathless across the country, culminating in their much-anticipated sophomore release “Country Songs”, which is currently charting on both the US and UK Americana charts.

“She’s only two albums into her career and has already delivered better albums than many artists will release over a 20 year career. All of the praise she gets is deserved and there’s no reason why she shouldn’t be mentioned amongst the very best in country music today. You’re not going to find too many albums better than ‘Country Songs’.” —Country Perspective

The Wailers

The must-see show of the summer!

More so than any other set of musicians on the planet, The Wailers Band brought reggae to the attention of the world outside of Jamaica back in the ‘70s when they helped to elevate Bob Marley to the status of the first “Third World Superstar.” 

Now, for the first time since Marley’s untimely death, all of these players, except for Carlton Barrett (who was tragically murdered in 1987), are together again to make another display of musical unity! 

The Wailers Reunited project shines a beacon of hope during these trying times, showing the power of music to overcome obstacles, and highlights the close camaraderie and exceptional musical abilities that made The Wailers Band so legendary.

Chris Milam

This Memphis-based singer-songwriter invites—and earns—comparisons to Paul Simon.

Only Milam’s sound is a little more brooding with its atmospheric vocals, shimmering guitar, and haunting strings like those characterizing his new album “Kids These Days.”

His gift for melody and lyricism revisits earlier comparisons to Simon & Garfunkel (“Bookends”). But his new album also evokes richly-orchestrated works by R.E.M. (“Automatic for the People”) and Chris Bell (“I Am the Cosmos”). 

For this show, he’ll be playing electric guitar accompanied by a cellist as he explores how “kids these days” aren’t kids any more as they encounter loss while seizing opportunities for change.

With a distinctive Americana style and unforgettable narrative lyrics, Ritter never fails to captivate audiences. His most recent album, “Sermon On The Rocks”, continues to receive critical praise. 

The New York Times proclaims: “The literary-minded songwriter Josh Ritter...recharges his music on his eighth studio album, “Sermon On The Rocks”...Harking back to Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and maybe a little Mark Knopfler, Mr. Ritter has always been a slinger of serious ideas and high-flown imagery.” 

Rolling Stone says, “With his latest, Ritter has achieved the near impossible, fully reimagining his own art while still holding close to what's always made him special.”

Reviewers have praised Knapp’s earthy rock sound and hook-filled melodies accompanied by poetic lyrics that paint her songs with candid emotions. AllMusic.com says that her last studio album “Set Me Free” “offers up a mix of dark, introspective ballads awash with country and blues tones as well as a couple of flat-out barnburners.”

Knapp, the winner of four Dove Awards and two Grammy nominations, is currently on tour supporting her latest album, which she hints will be intimate and folky with a lot of it driven by love songs.

Rolling Stone has proclaimed that “if Fleetwood Mac came up in North Carolina, they might resemble Delta Rae.”

Delta Rae, the six-piece band with four powerhouse lead vocalists, has a rich rootsy sound swelling with gorgeous harmonies and infectious hooks that float atop an array of Americana alt-pop influences.  Effortlessly bridging rock, folk and piano-pop with gospel, country and the blues, Delta Rae is food for the musical soul. 

Based in North Carolina, the band has traversed the world several times over since forming in 2009, bringing their hard-charging, harmony-rich live show to fans and sold out venues throughout. A mainstay of the festival circuit (including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, and Voodoo), the relentlessly touring group shows no sign of slowing down as they prepare to release their third studio album in 2017.

Miss Tess & The Talkbacks

Miss Tess got her musical start at home in Maryland, her childhood nights ending in music. Her parents would sing her to sleep with the gentle, tender sounds of American folk songs, occasionally interrupted by their 30s swing band rehearsing in the basement. Tess studied piano as a child, and continued on as a teenager to take up the guitar and singing, and eventually began her own studies in early jazz and blues. All grown up and currently living in Nashville, Miss Tess and her band regularly steal the show at venues with something a little rowdier and more eclectic. Infused with classic country and honky-tonk, southern rhythm & blues, New Orleans jazz and swing, and sounds of swamp pop and early rock n’ roll, she is an embodiment of everything that it still home-grown in America.

On her new release Baby, We All Know, Miss Tess continues to explore her own personal crossroads of American roots music. This full-length release features eleven finely crafted and well-sung original songs. Heightened by Tess’ prowess on her Weymann archtop guitar, she is accompanied by her top-notch band, The Talkbacks, featuring guitar ace and co-conspirator Thomas Bryan Eaton. The songs were further enlivened with piano, organ, pedal steel, and fiddle in the studio.

Tess says “I consider this my best yet collection of original music. In writing these tunes I stepped out of myself and into many different characters, based on real life and my imagination, and pulled sounds and stories from my musical fantasy land. Baby, we all know their secrets and on goings, in a world of mischief and troubled fun.” Enjoyable is just what Baby, We All Know is, propelled by the classic quality of Tess’s vocals, compelling and totally believable. 

“An amalgamation of country-blues music with influences from artists both old and new, Baby, We All Know is decidedly old school. Miss Tess & The Talkbacks have truly crafted a winner.” –Paste

Shannon McNally

"She has the voice: bruised, smoky and ornery, right at home where country and soul meet. She has the melodies and the timing - she’s irresistible.” — The New York Times

Fresh from opening for the likes of Stephen Stills and Kenny Wayne Shepherd, rocker Shannon McNally makes her debut in the Stoltz! 

With a time-stopping voice, born in New York but simultaneously roughed up and refined by New Orleans and Mississippi, McNally has cut a singular path through the musical landscape - one that includes a Grammy nomination and a place on the stage with a who's who of rock, country and soul: Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Bonnie Raitt, Vince Gill, Levon Helm, Charlie Sexton, Dr. John, Bobby Rush, Luther and Cody Dickinson, Derek Trucks, and most recently, Americana legend Rodney Crowell who took the producer's chair for her upcoming release on Compass Records.

In a show you don’t want to miss, she’s going to play a collection of transcendent folk-blues and country-rock songs that are poised to solidify her place as a peerless Americana songwriter and performer.
