***MAIN STAGE MUSIC LINEUP***
MIKE FARRIS & THE ROSELAND RHYTHM REVUE - www.mikefarrismusic.com
A born and bred southerner, Mike Farris has a unique style that combines elements of blues, rock and soul. His interpretations of traditional New Orleans Black Gospel mixed with a dash of Stax and Motown leave audiences feeling excited, delighted and loved. He won the Americana Music Association’s Award for New & Emerging artist in 2008 as well as the Gospel Music Association’s 2009 Award for Best Traditional Gospel album of the year. In 2010 he gathered some of Nashville's finest musicians—including Kenny Vaughan, Sam Bush and others—to record an ep called “The Night The Cumberland Came Alive” to benefit victims of the 1,000 year flood that hit Middle Tennessee that May. Mike and his powerhouse band The Roseland Rhythm Revue have wowed audiences all over the world. He is currently putting the finishing touches on his new studio album whose release is anticipated in early 2014.
THE WOOD BROTHERS - www.thewoodbros.com
Two brothers decide to form a band, adapting the blues, folk and other roots music sounds they loved as kids into their own evocative sound—intertwining their voices in the sort of high‐lonesome harmony blend for which sibling singers are often renowned. While that’s perhaps not an unusual story, the Wood Brothers took a twisty path to their ultimate collaboration: they pursued separate projects for some15 years before joining forces.
Musically united at last, brothers Chris and Oliver Wood along with band mate Jano Rix combine soulful, Van Morrison-meets-Freddie King vocals with a gritty, nimble slide guitar, a jazz-inspired double bass and the rhythmic pulse of drums. This signature fusion of folk, blues, jazz and classic R&B has garnered attention and adoration from music-savvy audiences all over the nation.
