SCHEDULE?

5:00pm: Charlie Millard Band

BIO: Charlie Millard started playing piano at age 11. By 13 he was performing at churches, farmers markets and weddings. At 15, he started writing songs with his father, Jerry Millard, and now at 22 fronts his
own indie-rock outfit, the Charlie Millard Band. "Singer-songwriter Charlie Millard is a complicated mix of yesterday’s vintage and current musical Americana.He plays his songs at local cafes and street fairs around Northern Michigan, but his sound would be
equally at home in a Hemingway-era pub in the 1920s, surrounded by a cloud of cigar smoke and Lost Generation peers." -Kristi Kates, Northern Express


(VIDEO: https://www.facebook.com/pg/CharlieMillardBand/videos/)



6:30pm: Cousin Curtiss

BIO: John Butler meets John Popper meets Keller Williams. Cousin Curtiss combines the picking style, soul, and energy of John Butler, the incendiary harmonica style of John Popper, and the multi-instrumentalist-live-looping
talents of Keller Williams. Cousin Curtiss’s life and music has been featured by Business Insider, MSN, Fox News, USA Today, Cosmopolitan Magazine, and Daily Mail UK. (VIDEO:

7:30pm: Community Toast & Recognition

7:35pm: Live Auction



8:00pm: Cedric Burnside

BIO: The 39-year-old still lives on several acres not far from the Holly Springs, Mississippi, home where he was raised by “Big Daddy,” his grandfather, the late singer/songwriter/guitarist R.L. Burnside whom
Cedric famously played with, just as his own father, drummer Calvin Jackson, did. Cedric was literally born to the blues, more specifically, the “rhythmically unorthodox” Hill country variant which emerged from Mississippi, where he grew up surrounded (and
influenced) by Junior Kimbrough, Jessie May Hemphill and Otha Turner, as well as delta musicians T-Model Ford and Paul “Wine” Jones. (VIDEO:
https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=472327209962023)



Grammy-nominated in 2015 for Best Blues Album for the Cedric Burnside Project’s Descendants of Hill Country, as well as the recipient of the Blues Music Awards honor as Drummer of the Year for four consecutive
years, Cedric’s latest album offers a showcase for his electric and acoustic guitar, recording 26 tracks in just two days with drummer/slide guitarist Brian Jay in the latter’s Brooklyn home studio in a rush of creativity. It’s his first release for Single
Lock Records, the Florence, Alabama label headquartered across the Tennessee River from the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio and responsible for critically acclaimed records by John Paul White, Nicole Atkins, Dylan LeBlanc and St. Paul & the Broken Bones.




9:45pm: K. Jones & the Benzie Playboys

BIO: Celebrating two decades of delivering the roots sound of southwest Louisiana’s Creole, Cajun, and Zydeco music to the Great Lakes region, the Benzie Playboys continue to build their fan base with live performances
for two-steppin’, waltzes, and smoking red hot zydeco dancing. (VIDEO:
