Rachael Davis and Adrian + Meredith: presented by Sidetrack Sessions

RACHAEL DAVIS

Multi-instrumentalist Rachael Davis is as renown for her expressive--and explosive--voice as she is for uniting the often desperate worlds of folk, blues, country, and pop.

Over a decade career of solo albums and collaborations, the Michigan native has established herself as the best (barely) kept secret in folk music with a poise and confidence on stage--not to mention a song repertoire--that is more associated with veterans with decades of experience. Many established artist for whom Davis has opened for have been struck by the sheer force of her performance--her original and fearless phrasing--which has challenged more than a few of her heroes to step it up when they find she's on the bill.

And with Davis' recent relocation to Nashville, TN, the secret of her ascending career as a new and exciting voice in American music seems destined to get out in a big way.

Davis has lent her voice to countless recordings for friends as well as for film soundtracks, but it is her intuitive and empathetic understanding of folk music—“the music of folks” as she calls it, and her original and thoughtful songwriting voice that has earned her fans around the U.S.

The Immortal Greg Garing performing at Kimbro's, w/James Sane

With over 3 decades in the music industry, Greg Garing has inspired two generations of musicians with his unique blend of country, bluegrass, rockabilly, and honky-tonk. At 19, while in his hometown of Erie, PA, Greg heard the music of Bill Monroe. Greg immediately set a course for Nashville; a town he would soon take over.
In a short time, Greg went on to become an iconic figure within the Nashville scene with his residency at Nashville's famed downtown nightclub, Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, on lower Broadway. While at Tootsie's, Greg assembled the best pickers around to revive and pay tribute to the traditional sensibilities of his idols. Greg would gain notoriety for his mastery of every stringed instrument, and for having a stage presence second to none. The Man in Black himself, Johnny Cash, called Greg "The best country singer I heard in 30 years". After dominating the country and bluegrass scene in Nashville for years, he set back up North to re-create his "Opry-Style" format in New York City. 9C, in Manhattan's East Village, would become the venue where the premier players in New York would come to listen and if lucky enough, to sit in with Greg's "Alphabet City Opry".
With seven albums under his belt, and two more set to release in the Fall of 2017, Greg Garing has continued to build his legacy and once again has moved back to the Tennessee area. Greg continues to be a veritable hurricane on stage with his natural ability to play and sing anything. He truly is a living legend and remains one of the most prolific entertainers of our time.
