Oakhurst
Whether it's in front of thousands of festivarians, hundreds of friendly bar dancers, dozens of fellow pickers, or each other in the studio, Oakhurst leaves it all on the field. This quintet brings their stories to the stage in the form of pure energy and passion for acoustic music. With gifted percussion and a driving low end, the banjo, guitar, fiddle and vocals have all the space they need to tell you a story. Love, life, loss, and whiskey are likely to be the topic of the day- come on and jump in the get down for a spell.... The band spikes traditional bluegrass with rock & roll and a kamikaze rhythmic sensibility. That danceable concoction along with stringed shootouts, ringing harmonies, and citybilly swagger keeps the band in high demand. Oakhurst’s unpretentious, go-for-it interpretation of a genre that's roots are often handled reverently, sparks interest in bluegrass by folks who don’t know Doc Watson from Doc Holliday.
ClusterPluck
ClusterPluck
Americana's wild child, ClusterPluck, mixes bluegrass, folk, rock, and country into a hearty sonic stew. Throwing tradition aside, they utilize banjo, guitar, bass, violin, mandolin, and dobro. This four piece band from St. Louis produces an up-beat, grassy energy with a little country jam for listeners of all ages to savor.

ClusterPluck has released two full length albums: "ClusterPluck" (2013), and "The Open Road" (2014); followed by a 5 song E.P. in 2015 simply titled: "E.P." A new album to be released in early 2017.

ClusterPluck tours extensively through-out the US.
