Over the course of a decade-long independent music career, he has gained a loyal following and attracted media attention stretching across the Atlantic. He currently tours in support of his seventh album, Time Will Take You, recorded in Nashville, Tenn., with Grammy nominated producer and guitarist Doug Lancio and members of Ryan Adams band The Cardinals.

Vintage country out of Portland, the group delivers duo female harmony vocals, fiddle, pedal steel and a very danceable rhythm section. Original music blends with classic honky tonk tunes from Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams, Ray Price and many others. Copper & Coals debut album went No. 1 on the Freeform American Roots Music chart.
5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 9
This unique group is named for the iconic Jimmy Buffett tune Cheeseburger in Paradise.
Its songs tell stories of boats, bars, beaches and bad behavior. With six vocalists, keyboard, guitar, bass and a driving beat, its a band that invites dancing and singing along. The Margarita Girls bring their sassy good-times attitude, colorful costumes, singing and dancing to complete the entertainment package.
