About the Bands:

The Timbers- “Timbers plays the kind of rowdy, rootsy, americana music you just want to stomp your foot and sing along to. It’s the perfect whiskey drinking music. Our greatest influence as a band is the American tradition of sitting around living rooms or on porches to sing songs together with whatever instruments happen to be around. Our show is completely about being part of something together, an inspiration we take form Pete Seeger. We hope that at the end of each show people feel as if the songs they shared in are their own.”

The Kay Brothers- “Missouri brothers form a band saluting the music traditional to their homeland: The Ozarks… where Old-Time Fiddle music received a quick flash fry of foot stompin’ Country Blues as it made its way across the Mississippi River. The songs are a collection of stories, often ancient in verse but timeless in meaning, and delivered with sunny reverence for this forgotten music bred to uplift from the tangle of struggles in a bygone era. It’s music that prefers to draw you out, rather than draw you in.

In 2018, the band released their Self-Titled Debut Album and a companion video for their song, “Find Your Love,” recorded in an abandoned auto garage somewhere in Callaway County. Joined by Molly Healey and Roger Netherton on fiddles as well as “Shakin’ Jake” Allen on percussion, the Kay Brothers boast sibling harmonies, upright bass, guitar, tenor banjo, fiddle, harmonica, cello, washboard, congas, shakers, and an array of foot percussion. The mission: to preserve the rural music of our forefathers and mothers that used to fill the wooden barns that once dotted countryside on Saturday night and the small family churches on Sunday morning. That party is still going on…. it’s in your blood.”

Like Rabbits- “Like Rabbits, based out of Kansas City, has been described as straightforward bar bluegrass. The band is lead by singer/songwriter Dick Page whose raspy/whiskey soaked vocals serenade audiences with songs about drinking, drugging, and heartache.”
