Bradford Lee Folk & the Bluegrass Playboys
Wednesday, July 15, 7:30pm
Nashville's Bradford Lee Folk makes good-times bluegrass that's not afraid to punch your gut. If you want to reach Bradford Lee Folk, call him after two pm, Nashville time. That’s because before two o’clock, he’s out on his tractor in the fields of an organic farm outside the city, farming for a living. After 2pm, Brad heads back into Nashville to set up for a long night of burning bluegrass and rootsy Americana with his band The Bluegrass Playboys. That juxtaposition between the gritty dirt of the country and the glitz of Nashville lies at the heart of Bradford Lee Folk's music.

Antsy McClain and the Trailer Park Troubadours
Antsy McClain & the Trailer Park Troubadours are based in Nashville, TN, but they're as far from country's mainstream as you can get. The band's moniker is a tip-off that everything isn't exactly serious, but McClain isn't a novelty act. The Troubadours are a revolving cadre of top-notch pickers who can play cowboy jazz, Tex-Mex waltzes, country ballads, and soulful R&B dance tunes without breaking a sweat. McClain adds his songwriting, a relaxed tenor with the understated elegance of all good country singers and a storyteller's gift of gab to the proceedings for a show that's both down-home and high tone.

Brian Smalley & Roy Schneider
Tickets: $10 adv/$15 day of show
Roy Schneider is that rare species, a troubador who sings with passion, plays with a natural fluency and writes from the heart.
Brian Smalley's acoustic novel "Chickens Pigs" based in Civil War era Florida was named Best Florida Folk CD of 2013 by the Florida Times-Union. Brian's latest CD "KEY" is an acoustic novel set in the Florida Keys telling the fictional story of Painter Kellet & Compass Rose. The songs Brian has written borrow from old-time flat-pick guitar and new-grass, but his style is hard to pigeon-hole. He sings with a soulful, earthy voice, and his live performances tend to be just that: Lively!
The Slambovian Circus of Dreams
Tickets: $25 adv/$30 day of show
The Slambovian Circus of Dreams have been called “the hillbilly Pink Floyd,” which is an apt description, particularly if you throw in elements of Incredible String Band, Neil Young, The Band, Dylan, and maybe even some Frank Zappa as well. Equal parts Washington Irving and Woodstock, the band taps a broad palette of styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to huge Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems. Playing art school roots-rock, trad folk and a moody but uplifting americana, they possess an extensive instrumental arsenal (accordion, cello, mandolin, theremin).
