bands and artists

The festival will also focus on the craft of music with live bands on stage throughout the day. Artist Luke Taylor brings his experience in jazz, rock, and improvised music with Garrett Cruson on drums to create a unique blend of original folk, free improvisation, and rock groove. Artist Foster Powell is a songwriter and musician born in Anacortes, WA and born in Boston. His tightly arranged, oddly tuned pop songs combine Nielsen-esque singer/songwriter classicism with a spirited investment in lyrical communication. Originally from Los Angeles, CA, the final artist is Kendall Kirk and is a lifelong guitarist, singer and songwriter based in Lake Havasu, Arizona. He seamlessly blends classic covers, with inspirations like The Pretenders, The Who, and The Beatles, with his own unique anti-genre twist.
