Ashley Heath and Her Heathens – Raised in the foothills of Appalachia, Ashley Heath has developed a strong passion for country, blues, and folk music. They released their first album in May, 2016. Listen

Grandpa's Cough Medicine – This "180-proof" trio is led by one of the true rising stars of flatpicking, Brett Bass. He is joined Mike Coker, who’s intensity and perfection on the five-string banjo drops jaws wherever they play, and Jon Murphy, who’s unerring solidity on the bass acts as glue in this amazing trio. Listen

Grab your friends and family and take a silly photo at the penguin cutout poster.
