Jesse Dayton

Country, Alternative, Rock
To call Austin's Jesse Dayton an "Americana" act makes him sound like a museum piece, when in reality, he's an alive, unabashed alt-punk-country twanger and basher and barely restrained rock'n'roller who has built a cult following since his first album, "Raisin' Cain," in 1995. He has recorded eight albums of his own, plus two soundtracks for Rob Zombie ("The Devil's Rejects," "Halloween 2"), and in 2016 has been selling a sampler CD at his merch table that includes such new songs as "Daddy Was a Badass" and a tune with one of the most country titles ever penned, "I'm at Home Gettin' Hammered (While She's Out Gettin' Nailed)." He's also he also played on some of the final recordings by Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Ray Price and Glen Campbell, has also performed with Willie Nelson and Johnny Bush, filled in for Billy Zoom in X, and is on the road with John Doe in 2016, both in John's band and fronting his own act. No stranger to acting, he also wrote and directed a 2013 horror movie, "Zombex," starring Malcolm McDowell, Sid Haig, John Doe and Lew Temple ("The Walking Dead").

Jim Lauderdale
With Gus Clark
Bluegrass, Country, Americana/Roots
Jim Lauderdale is just so good at so many styles of music – maybe the word is masterful. Bluegrass, country, soul, folk – for him, it all falls under the umbrella of Americana – roots music at its finest, and that’s the music he makes. He’s won two Grammy awards, written songs recorded by such artists as the Dixie Chicks, Patty Loveless, Shelby Lynne, Solomon Burke and George Strait, and released more than two dozen albums of his own including his latest, "This Changes Everything." Born in North Carolina, raised in South Carolina, with stints in New York City and Los Angeles before settling in Nashville, Lauderdale has worked extensively with such artists as Ralph Stanley, Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams and George Strait. Since winning the Americana Music Association’s first awards for Artist of the Year and Song of the Year in 2002, he has hosted their awards show every year. He also hosts "Music City Roots" each week from the Loveless Barn in Nashville, and co-hosts, with Buddy Miller, "The Buddy and Jim Show." His music has been featured on ABC’s "Nashville" and in the movie "Pure Country," and he’s the subject of the documentary "The King Of Broken Hearts."

Sera Cahoone

Country, Folk
The pedal steel, the fiddle, the hush of a song sung from the heart—the world of American roots music is no stranger to Seattle songwriter Sera Cahoone. Growing up, Cahoone's father, a Rocky Mountain dynamite salesman, took the family to mining conferences at old honky-tonks. The sounds she heard there—the twang of country crooners, cowboy boots on peanut shells— continue to influence her songwriting today.

Country, Folk, Americana/Roots, Bluegrass
Identical twins Adam and David Moss are a musical duo unlike most others. The Brother Brothers sound is striking and undeniably captivating. At times leaning towards the darker elements of Appalachian, klezmer, and bluegrass traditions, their songs are laden with near perfect sibling harmonies or unison singing, compelling writing, and imaginative arrangements. The acoustic duo features David on cello and guitar and Adam on the 5-string fiddle. Both with individual storied careers in the Americana music scene, the Moss brothers are now finally teaming up to bring their experiences together.
