2022 Featured Headliner

The Kody Norris Show

2022 SPBGMA Entertainer of the Year Kody Norris
2022 SPBGMA Fiddler Performer of the Year Mary Rachel Norris

2022 SPBGMA Bluegrass Music Awards Entertainer of the Year and Fiddle Performer of the Year!

Deeply rooted in North American folk music, Kody Norris has crafted a performance that harkens back and tips a hat to the traditions created by Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin’s showmanship, the Stanley Brothers’ harmonies, performances of the Grand Ole Opry, and a bit of Vaudeville. 

The foursome is fronted by Norris on guitar and his fiddling “sweetie,” Mary Rachel Nalley-Norris, Josiah Tyree on banjo, and Cousin Charlie Lowman on the bass! 

The Kody Norris Show recently signed their first major record deal with Rebel Records from Charlottesville, Virginia, and has since released All Suited Up, which debuted at #7 on the Billboard Charts!

From southwestern North Dakota, The Waddington Brothers have been performing together since 2004. They have performed with such notable artists as The Kruger Brothers, Ron Block and Bobby Hicks. The Waddington Brothers spent many years touring the United States and Canada with their family (nine of them in all) as the Waddington Family, performing Gospel music. Music has been in these men’s blood since early childhood. In 2009 Ethan won second place in the National Bluegrass Banjo Championship in Winfield Kansas. Since then the brothers have performed at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri, they have been featured guests on “Dakota Air, the Radio Show” on Prairie Public Radio as well as performing for North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple’s inaugural ball in 2013. The Waddington Brothers are a versatile acoustic group with a musical style that ranges from hard driving bluegrass to the mellow sound and dynamic western harmonies reminiscent of Bob Nolan and The Sons Of The Pioneers.

St. Paul Mudsteppers

Cameron Bluegrass Festival: St. Paul Mudsteppers

**UPDATE: The Saint Paul Mudsteppers were unable to join us in 2022. We send our best to the band and thank the New Midnight Coal Company for playing two sets on Friday.**

The Saint Paul Mudsteppers play country blues inspired by the recorded works of the early 1900’s in the Deep South.  Their main source of material is the great Mississippi Sheiks, but the Mudsteppers do not try to be a carbon copy.  The band tries to present this old music in a new and energetic way.

Flattgrass Revival

Cameron Bluegrass Festival: Flattgrass Revival

FlattGrass Revival is a traditional and gospel bluegrass band.  They are noted for their tight four-part harmony. Each member of the group grew up singing A Capella music with family and in church, which was instrumental in developing the natural sound of their harmony and lead vocals. What started out as a group of friends jamming together on their favorite bluegrass and gospel tunes, evolved into an organized band, performing regularly for community gatherings, the elderly, as well as bluegrass festival open mic opportunities.

Lorn & Royce Band

Cameron Bluegrass Festival: Lorn & Royce Band

Bluegrass/Gospel musicians, Lorn Schultz and Royce Sorensen have come full circle after starting together in the ’80s as founding members of the King’s Trio. 

Lorn went on to form the King’s Countrymen, which included bus tours to Nashville and Branson, plus numerous recordings over the band’s 26-year run. Lorn and his wife, Kristi, hosted a very successful and dearly-loved Bluegrass Gospel Festival every summer for 18 years on their Mondovi Farm. 

In addition to 23 years with the King’s Trio, Royce uses his multi-instrumentalist skills as a sideman in numerous Wisconsin bluegrass bands. He also has a recording business at his Eau Claire home studio. 

The two “old friends” continue to share their love of Bluegrass/Gospel music and giving testimony to the work of Christ in their lives. Kristi often handles the sound system duties. On occasion they invite guest musicians to join them.
