Week 9, July 29, 2020
Headliner – Shon Sanders and The Four Penny Peep Show Influenced by the likes of Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Teddy P, Stevie W., Sly and The Family Stone, Tower of Power, and P-Funk, just to name a few. Shon Sanders and The Four Penny Peep Show takes funk, jazz, and R&B, and serves it up in their own unique soulful way! 

Opening Band – Rebecca Scott Rebecca Scott has been performing her unique brand of folk-rock for over 27 years, and her music is described as “feel good music for people of all ages.... Rebecca's music is kind of a mix of when Dave Matthews meets Shawn Colvin.” The Rebecca Scott Band consists of Rebecca Scott on acoustic guitar and lead vocals, Debbie Sager on harmony vocals and hand percussion, Rob Hill on bass, and Dave John on drums. 

Here is what you can look forward to for the remainder of the season:

Week 10, August 5, 2020
Headliner – Jared & The Mill We’re 5 best friends from AZ. We love the desert, we love our city, its people, and we love each other. We love long drives, early mornings, late nights, dive bars, carne asada Tacos at 3 am, and asking each other what we think about things. From living rooms and basement clubs, to theaters and arenas, we just love playing shows, and being on the road. Our shows are rowdy, you’ll break down your walls and realize you’re not in this alone.

Opening Band – High Pine Whiskey Yell Born out of a desperate need for craft beer, deep powder, plastic jug moonshine, fast-moving rivers, and a deep-seated fear that artificial intelligence will ruin hard-driving bluegrass… High Pine Whiskey Yell came together as a band in late 2018 and released its first EP (The Orchard Sessions) in 2019. This four-piece group of modern-day rounders focuses on telling true stories about robots taking your job, banksters robbing from the poor, the trials of gold panning Idaho, skiing/riding deep powder, UFOs, and a few other traditional bluegrass subjects (such as murder, drinking, and dogs).

Week 11, August 12, 2020
Headliner – Jonathan Warren & The Billy Goats What is progressive physchobilly folk grass? It’s a goat chewing on a can, it’s a cat scratching at your door, it’s foot stompin’ music that makes you want to eat a biscuit. Melodies you wake up humming in the morning, and stick to your bones like peach cobbler. It’s new-timey, post-retro, pre-apocolyptic, southern Appalachian, gypsy porch swing. It’s the Billy Goats. Enjoy.

Opening Band – Dan Costello Dan Costello is a singer/songwriter, guitarist and prime staple of the remote but robust music scene in Boise, Idaho, USA. Armed at an early age with a radio and a baritone ukulele, his love for music led him to a classical guitar degree from Boise State, and a full-time professional music career now spanning over 15 years as a performer, writer/arranger, educator and simultaneous rabble-rouser/peacemaker in his local community.
 
Week 12, August 19, 2020
Headliner Steve Fulton Music Steve Fulton Music is reminiscent of the heydays of folk rock and americana. High-energy performances transport audiences back in time as Steve Fulton Music blends musicianship, creativity, and tradition. The smooth vocal stylings, string instruments and electric guitar will keep you dancing, singing and wanting more! Steve Fulton is a long time singer-songwriter, producer and recording engineer based in Boise Idaho, where he owns and operates Audio Lab recording studios.

Opening Band – Dustin Morris and Friends Dustin will be joined by his wonderfully talented friends, Steve Fulton, Troy Ferguson, Aaron Atkins, and Kirsti Rae for this show. Singer, songwriter, and multi-Instrumentalist, Dustin Morris combines his classical vocal training with street-wise creativity and talent to form a rugged ethereal sound. Lyrics tell a chronicle of an artist living between the tension of creation and love. His music is best described as Hozier & Amos Lee dancing to Arcade Fire's "The Suburb" rubbing elbows with soul and folk on the dance floor.
 
Week 13, August 26, 2020
Headliner Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band BMA nominees The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band are the greatest front-porch blues band in the world. They are led by Reverend Peyton, who most consider to be the premier finger picker playing today. He has earned a reputation as both a singularly compelling performer and a persuasive evangelist for the rootsy, country blues styles that captured his imagination early in life and inspired him and his band to make pilgrimages to Clarksdale, Mississippi to study under such blues masters as T-Model Ford, Robert Belfour and David “Honeyboy” Edwards. Now The Big Damn Band is back with an explosive new record Poor Until Payday. Reverend Peyton's guitar work on the new record is phenomenal and howls the blues. The record is critically acclaimed by Rolling Stone, Relix, Popmatters, Guitar World, American Songwriter, No Depression, Glide, Wide Open Country, Paste, American Blues Scene, Vintage Guitar and many more!

Opening Band – The Oliphants The Oliphants are a groove heavy Americana jam band. Borrowing from folk, roots, jazz, rock, funk and world beat. The combination of the songwriting, acoustic rhythm guitar and harmonica of Lee Penn Sky, the classical Jazz training of Stand up bassist Troy Ferguson, the genre blurring electric mandolin playing guitar hero Dan Costello, and the heavy hitting cyclonic beats of drummer and music educator David Gluck will make you shake your backside. It's Trunkadelic!
