As a committed wanderer, former American Idol contestant Jessica Paige draws on personal experience and the stories of old souls to bring her own unique brand of songwriting to the stage. Folk-inspired lyricism is brought to life by a master vocalist, backed by a dynamic soulful band.
“There was always music in our house. Whether it was background for dinner, up front for parties or required listening because of the release of a Beatles-related album, music was always the forefront of our family.” Billy's upbringing instilled in him a love of the songs that take him back to those days playing and singing with his Dad and brothers. Today those memories fuel Billy’s innate talent and desire to bring good times through music to others across the nation.
Fresh off the success of their first album, and taking first place in Rockygrass’ Best New Band Competition, Colorado natives, The Railsplitters got busy touring the US, meeting wider audiences, and of course, spending hours in the tour van! With their finger on the pulse, The Railsplitters are pushing the genre forward with an adventurous spirit, carrying in the tradition of breaking boundaries with their innovative sound.
With a harmony-laced take on alt-folk that’s both breathtaking and sweetly ethereal, The Hunts are a Chesapeake, Virginia-based band made up of seven brothers and sisters who’ve been playing music together almost their entire lives.
Aloft is a Chicago-based circus company dedicated to telling original stories though world-class circus arts. In performances meant for theater, the street or the open sky Aloft is changing the limits of what's physically possible in storytelling.
BritBeat recreates the Beatles touring years. The show begins with the early Ed Sullivan songs that includes 'She Loves You', 'Twist and Shout' and 'I Want To Hold Your Hand'. Experience the mania, moods and emotions while you dance away to classic hits such as 'A Hard Day's Night' and 'Help!'
