FEATURED GUESTS @ the Headline Show

THE SAMPLES

DENVER, CO
Indie / Alternative - rock

Credited as the founding act of the so-called Dorm Rock genre of that era, their early reggae-meets-Dead sound drew comparisons to The Police. By their second album No Room, the Samples were staking their own ground as a leading act in the emerging indie- and alt-rock movements.

 

Delvon Lamar organ trioDELVON LAMARR ORGAN TRIO 

SEATTLE, WA
Old-School jazz -Funk

The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio delivers the lost art of “feel good music.” with a helping of 60's organ jazz stylings of Jimmy Smith; a pinch of snappy soul strut of Booker T. & the M.G.’s and then sprinkles-in Motown, Stax, blues, and cosmic Jimi-style guitar. It’s a stewing, brewing concoction.

 

THE DEAD ZONE at Putnam Place

DEADGRASS and FRIENDS

HUDSON VALLEY, NY
Garica-Isnpired Acoustic & Electric

Grammy-winner C Lanzbom leads his popular cast of the lower-Hudson's crack players into the Fest's DEAD ZONE room for a night of  creative interpretations of songs made famous by the Dead, JGB, Old and in the Way and other cosmic cowboys.

HALFSTEP

518, NY
A Grateful Tribute

The early show here belongs to regional Dead faves HALFSTEP, and they bring their expanded big band format into the Dead Zone for a rare sighting. Get their before they hit the stage, and make a request: one which they might even deliver!

Two sessions, before and after the first band: Grit N Whiskey. So you will have a live act with which to put your new skills to work!

JENNY GRACE BAND

RISING COUNTRY STAR

Nashville's Jenny Grace embodies a similar country persona to the country badasses of the last century, having grown up lower middle class with a rebel soul, Mama definitely tried.

Right out of the gate with her hit song Driving With the Top Down, followed up with a British CMA nomination and a string of 'Show Stealing' support dates, Jenny Grace and her sharp bandmates are charted on a course to being the Country Music's Next Big Thing.

GRIT-N-WHISKEY

COUNTRY COVERS

The long-running and popular Grit-N-Whiskey will start the party with selections from their deep playlist of the modern country hits that you love to dance to.

North Country Music Awards 2017 Winner.

THE CELTIC PUB at The Parting Glass

MAGGIES CLAN

UPSTATE NY

High-energy Celtic rock will be thrown down by this seven-piece powerhouse.  The focus is on clever and hard-hitting originals, along with samplings of traditional Irish and Scottish classics.  No prisoners will be taken here; making Maggies Clan the perfect closing act at the world-famous Parting Glass Pub.

TRISKELE

EIRE

Triskele not only revitalizes the Gaelic language but weaves history and traditions about growing up in Ireland, delivering a deeper appreciation and understanding of Irish/Celtic history.  Fans enjoy hearing songs sung with the unique qualities of the female voice.
