The Kody Norris Show
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, 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!

The Stringsmiths (Hand-forged Bluegrass) are a hard-driving, traditional bluegrass band from Northwest Wisconsin. Founded in 2010, we are a group of friends and musicians who share a passion for traditional bluegrass music. Influenced by greats such as Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, Jimmy Martin, Del McCoury, James King, and many others, we have developed a sound and style we hope will entertain folks and help keep traditional bluegrass alive and well with both cover tunes and a few original songs.

St. Paul Mudsteppers
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 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.

The Cabin Dwellers
The Cabin Dwellers started in 2000 when Jimmer, Jerry, and Nate got together in a cabin in the hills of Ridgeland, and played to the barred owls late into the night on weekends. After awhile, they decided to play to humans. Today, they are fortunate to be joined by Kathy Krug (on fiddle) and Chris Landstrom (on the banjo).
