Stirfy Musette

Stirfry Musette (formerly Hay and Ellis Stirfry) has an eclectic style which flies from gypsy to Latin to Celtic and and jazz and includes original compositions and musettes with an upbeat and dynamic spirit!

Jeff Ellis’s lightening-fingered guitar playing melds with Joanna Hay’s expressive violin and mandolin and Ben Griffith’s jubilant accordion and upright bass, while Jordon Ellis adds his unique flavor on percussion. This group will surprise and delight its audiences with its varied repertoire. This band brings joy to its performances, which are filled with laughter!

Jeff Coffin and the Mu'tet

The Mu’tet is led by Jeff Coffin, saxophonist from Dave Matthews Band. Also a composer, educator, and 3x Grammy winner, you likely also know Jeff from his 14 years with the genre-defying Bela Fleck & the Flecktones (1997-2010).

The Mu’tet takes its name from the word ‘mutation’, clearly reflecting Jeff’s idea that music must continue to change and mutate in order to grow.

Dixie Bee-Liners

"Every car on the highway has a story," states BRANDI HART.

Hart should know. As lead singer and co-writer for roots-music phenoms THE DIXIE BEE-LINERS, she's in the business of telling stories. "Our new CD Susanville is a collection of tales from the American highway... where people are going, what they've left behind, and the things they experience along the way. It's our love letter to the open road."

Carl Jones

Carl Jones has been involved in the old-time music community ever since he first attended fiddlers’ conventions in Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia back in the 70s. As a student in the commercial music program at the University of North Alabama, he was able to hear many great songwriters in the famous Muscle Shoals Studios. He later toured with Norman and Nancy Blake and James Bryan as a member of the Rising Fawn String Ensemble, playing mandolin, guitar,banjo, and fiddle. He often plays as a duo with James Bryan, when possible with his partner (fiddler) Erynn Marshall, or as part of a trio with Bruce Green and Don Pedi.
