July 2nd, 11am-2pm: Wake Moody
Wake Moody is an R&B/pop-rock musician who plays soulful, feel-good music in the vein of Earth Wind and Fire, Daniel Caesar, Lianne la Havas, John Mayer, and Bill Withers. He released his debut EP Shivers in 2019 and has played venues ranging from the NC State Fair to Eno River Festival, Cat’s Cradle, and more. “My childhood was sound-tracked by my parents’ favorite R&B, classic rock and soul records,” he explains, an influence apparent in his band’s soulful live shows, featuring hypnotic grooves and three-part harmonies.
July 9th, 11am-2pm: Emily Stewart
Emily Stewart plays original tunes rooted in the folk, country, and blues traditions of the deep south. She first discovered her voice while perched in a south Alabama church pew as a child, and her vocal stylings are that of a true southern siren. Her roots as a writer also reach back to her hometown, Alabama's literary capital, where she was raised working for the family newspaper and commissioned as a columnist before even growing tall enough to reach the employee time clock. With lyrics and melodies that channel the strength of Odetta, the delicate twang of Kitty Wells, and the forthright softness of Loretta Lynn, Emily finds a song in every story.
July 16th, 11am-2pm: Banjo Earth
Appalachian born...world influenced. The Banjo Earth Band sounds like a global awakening, but with that banjo twang that can only be found in the southern United States. Powered by the core quartet of Andy Eversole on banjo, Sanders Davis on bass, Sandy Blocker on percussion, and Tim Wray on drums, they are often accompanied by a dynamic array of rambling troubadours, including fiddle master Jesse Ryan Eversole, keyboard wizard Julian Sizemore, and guitar guru Mason Via. Whomever graces the stage with the band that night, rest assured that the Banjo Earth Band will bring the energy, philosophy, spirit, and funkiness that they have come to be known for!
July 23rd, 11am-2pm: Nathan Ryan
Nathan Ryan is passionate about bringing kindie to the masses, inspiring people of all ages with his music! Kindie, or kids and family music, is an uplifting genre that connects the young to the young at heart, resonating with everyone. That’s exactly who Nathan's music is for...everyone! So, what can you expect from a Nathan Ryan show? A little rock, a little folk and everything in between! From solo performances to full band setups with ‘the Whomevers,’ there is never a dull moment! Nathan's shows are always full of jumping, shouting and singing along!
