Aug. 3 Bill and Eli Perras 

The many inspired lyrics given to and interpreted by Eli, combined with Bill's bluesy finger-style guitar playing create a very uniquely modern take on true Americana music in its purest form. Receiving much recognition for their tightly woven musical creativity, they humbly remain true to their personal values. They speak out with strong heartfelt lyrics accompanied by soulful genuine pentatonic rhythms against social injustices, corporate greed, and daily follies in everyday life. They can grip your heart, search your soul, change a mindset, or softly strike a funny bone, all the while leaving the audience with a sentiment for the common good we desire in all mankind. 

Aug. 10 Roxie Randle 

Randle has built a loyal regional following with regular gigs at Nashville hotspots (The Bluebird Café, Douglas Corner Café) and frequent stops in nearby cities like Knoxville, Atlanta, Louisville, and Carbondale. She divides her touring time between performing solo and as half of As Girls Go, a duo with her best friend Kimber Cleveland. Two Randle songs, including “This Way”—a co-write with Cleveland set to appear on their in-the-works dual album—are featured in the DVD extras of a documentary called “Beyond The Myth: The Truth About Pit Bulls.”. 

Aug. 17 Buddy Mondlock 

Buddy Mondlock writes songs. He does it so well that some great songwriters have recorded his songs on their own albums. Guy Clark, Nanci Griffith and Janis Ian, to name just a few. But theres nothing like hearing the guy who wrote em sing em. Hes not going to pin your ears back with those songs. Hes going to draw you into his world. Where a single snowflake follows the trajectory of a relationship, where you get your pocket picked by a Roman cat, where you might swim over the edge of the world if you're not careful and where dreams that don't come true still count. And it can all be happening in a little folk club or on a stage by a grassy hill or in someones living room or in the Royal Albert Hall.  

Aug. 24 Brett Holland  

Brett Hallam Holland is a U.S. based, New Zealand composer, guitarist and singer/songwriter.Brett tours and performs as a solo guitarist, and is currently showcasing his singer songwriter material off his newly recorded “Point of View” CD, as well as his acoustic guitar instrumentals off “The Zone”.
