Dalton Dash

What began as a simple duet has quickly burst into a colossal sound flared by robust song writing, ardent vocals and sturdy musicianship. This folk quartet originally met in the mountains of Appalachia. Dalton Dash began creating songs that spoke of love, loss, and troubles that today’s young people could relate to while keeping a traditional yet tempo pushing style.Their eclectic taste has allowed them to play shows that range from bluegrass to hard hitting rock and roll sets. With guitar playing that would knock the wind out of any listener just by watching and mandolin parts that bite at the heels of any dancer, the jovial and up-beat acoustic sounds seem electrified by their very energy, even when they slow it down a notch.
11:45am - 2:15pm


Dr. Yes

DR. YES is on a mission to stop evil, and MUSIC is their weapon of choice. Watch and LISTEN as they're coming to a town near YOU! Playing a fun mix of rock and blues, Dr. Yes has been stunning audiences with their energetic performances!
2:30pm - 5pm
