Split Lip Rayfield

For more than two decades, Split Lip Rayfield has mashed up their aggressive stew of acoustic bluegrass instrumentation, tight country vocals, fierce metal shred and in-your-face punk sensibilities. Their new material highlights the powerful songwriting talents of banjo innovator Eric Mardis and mandolin renegade Wayne Gottstine, while bassist Jeff Eaton holds it all down with his hand-built one-string Stitchgiver. All of that old-school invention and energy is intact, and they can still bring the house down. For more information on Split Lip Rayfield, visit www.splitliprayfield.com.

    Useful Jenkins

Useful Jenkins is a contemporary acoustic band with a bluegrass foundation. They use their grass-roots to readily tap into other genres such as folk, funk, rock, and hip hop. Their music generates emotion and sends a message to a wide range of listeners, giving them an eclectic group of followers from all walks of life. Useful Jenkins thrives on energy; they flourish in the moment and have an unmatched resonance with the crowd. The band is made up of an acoustic guitar, mandolin, violin, cello, and electric bass. 3-part vocal harmonies accompany the wall of stringed instruments, leaving listeners with a strong, clean, and unique sound. For more information on Useful Jenkins, visit www.usefuljenkins.com.

  Red Ben and the Missing Miles

Red Ben and the Missing Miles is a unique and refreshing style of aggressive new-grass, they bring a red hot set that goes the extra mile. These Central Wisconsin natives met in their early years of adulthood at a bluegrass music festival, after years apart they have once again formed a group. Within weeks of reuniting, magic ignited and the band was born. Through Ben’s unique song writing and combining a wide span of genres and influences from the 1920s on, they create a high energy fusion between bluegrass, reggae, blues, rock, and Americana.
