The trio Zoe Speaks consists of Mitch Barrett, Carla Gover, and Owen Reynolds, who jump in and out of their east Kentucky vernacular to play everything from traditional ballads to guitar-thumping contemporary acoustic tunes. With a smooth, mellow instrumental mix, which includes guitar, banjo, upright bass, and dulcimer by turns, close vocal harmonies are a defining feature of their sound. The duo is a powerhouse of songwriting, with wins at many of the nation’s top contests between them, including the Kerrville New Folk Award, the Telluride Troubadour Contest and 3 time winners of the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Competition at Merlefest.

Derby Celebration with Small Time Napoleon

Join us for our day long Derby Celebration, and top it off by dancing and swinging to the retro sounds of Small Time Napoleon. We will show the Derby on the big-screen TV, and the show starts shortly afterwards. Folks with tickets automatically have reserved seating, but drop-ins are most welcome!

Small Time Napoleon has been described as “a mad science blend of western swing, hot jazz, and folk” by Insider Louisville’s Kyle Ware. Their live shows are intimate and natural while remaining energetic. Their combination of swing-era influence with modern inclinations has driven them to a sound and style that is both new and old and wholly their own.

Asheville, North Carolina's River Whyless is a band much like that titular body of water - a mingling of currents, a flow of time and physical space, all brought together in a murmuring sense of purpose. It is the expression of a group of musicians, three of which are songwriters, who have played together in various forms since their college days in the North Carolina mountains. Their forthcoming EP, their first release since their 2012 debut album, is the next evolution of the band's collective voice.

DMM is a singer and songwriter (and a great many other things arguably less relevant to this particular piece of text) from Cold Spring, Kentucky. On the strength of an unsolicited demo he sent in January of 2007, Sub Pop released Stray Age in October of 2008, a quietly striking album and Daniel’s debut full-length. And, in February of 2010, Sub Pop released Dear Companion, an album written and performed by Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore together, and produced by Jim James from My Morning Jacket and Monsters of Folk.
