Carolina Chocolate Drops + Angela James
The Grammy® Award winning Carolina Chocolate Drops certainly demonstrate the influence of their regional Piedmont background with fiddle and banjo-based music, but to merely call the group bluegrass would ignore the band's constant evolution as members seek to highlight the central role African-Americans have played in shaping our nation's popular music. Opening this evening is classic country music artist and transplanted Chicagoan, Angela James.

Dawes + The Cairo Gang
North Carolina is fruitful ground for Los Angeles based Dawes as the band just recorded its third album there, the recently released Stories Don't End.

Fatoumata Diawara + Alasdair Roberts and Friends
Fatoumata Diawara's debut album, Fatou, is almost entirely her own work: self-composed and arranged, with her own backing vocals and percussion. The artist, raised in Mali, but now based in Paris, creates her own sound with a distinctly African spin. Inspired by Wassoulou tradition, jazz and blues, Diawara has overcome cultural prejudice faced by women to make her own music that is well-received by giants in the industry. Opening the stage this evening is Irish Folk group and Drag City Recording artists Alasdair Roberts and Friends.

The Handsome Family + AZITA
The Handsome Family is actually the husband and wife songwriting team of Brett and Rennie Sparks who have been collaborating for 20 years. Their latest release is The Handsome Family's Wilderness which intertwines the wonders of nature with unusual moments in history. Their music invokes Appalachian holler, psychedelic rock, Tin Pan Alley and medieval ballads. Chicago's piano songstress and multi-instrumentalist AZITA opens for the band.
