11 a.m.: Carolina Sonrise
This fun local bluegrass band belongs to the Carolina Bluegrass Association that will be onsite all weekend!
1 p.m.: Caroline Keller Band
Born and raised in the heart of Charlotte, Caroline Keller is southern girl with a spirit as fiery as her red hair. And her career is getting hot as fire, too. She’s becoming a fan favorite in the local music scene, earning a nomination as the Carolina Music Award Americana Band of the Year. Keller released her first album, Queen of the Highway, at age 16, topping the Christian Country Charts and moving four songs into the top ten. And while the title track from her new EP, Busted, begins to get radio airplay, Carolina remains committed to her Waxhaw church, Five Stones, where she still sings every Sunday. At the Garden she’ll be joined by her band for what promises to be a rousing show.
3 p.m.: Head for the Hills
Hailing from Colorado and hitting the road this summer in support of their new album, Potions and Poisons released in May, Head for the Hills calls itself a post-modern bluegrass band. But make no mistake, there is nothing reinvented about their sound. The band’s four members—Adam Kinghorn, Joe Lessard, Matt Loewen and Sam Parks—have created a niche and a sound all their own. In this unusual bluegrass you’ll find
delectable morsels of soul, funk and even old time. Now, after a handful of studio albums and four state bluegrass awards, the band is firing on all cylinders and appears to be headed to the peak of its success.

1 p.m.: Stepside Deluxe
Returning are local musicians with an uncanny ability to pick you up and put you down in another place and time. Stepside Deluxe has forged a creative path in music stemming from their influences of Roots, Rockabilly and the Honky-Tonk twang of Bakersfield–Nashville West. Frontman Bil Jones, bassist Jim Potter and guitarist Tony
Rogers are dedicated to the traditions of honest country music. Rounding out the troupe is steel guitarist Jim Ashton and percussionist Rick Cutshaw who bring their seasoned craft and experience to the stage.
3 p.m.: The Ragbirds
The Ragbirds have developed a well-deserved reputation as one of the most dynamic, high-spirited live bands in roots music. Written and recorded in the wake of the birth of
co-founders Erin Zindle and Randall Moore’s first child, the band’s fifth studio album The Threshold & The Hearth adds another dimension to the band’s catalog. “I’ve been
traveling with bands since I was a teenager,” says Zindle, a multi-instrumentalist who doubles as the band’s chief songwriter and frontwoman. “I’ve written a lot of songs about my experiences on the road…But we’re coming home with this album. There’s still a worldly feel, but there’s also the sense that The Threshold & The Hearth is the sound we’ve been searching for. I feel like we’re the alchemist who traveled so far, only to discover that what he was seeking was always at home.”
