Featured Artists

7-8 p.m.

WT Davidson

WT Davidson

WT Davidson was born and raised in Iowa City IA, where he cut his teeth playing at the Mill and the Sanctuary while still in high school. W.T.'s influences include traditional jazz artists like Jack Teagarden and Fats Waller, bluesmen like Bill Broonzy, and the older and more soulful country of the Merles - Travis and Haggard. moving to Nashville in '74, W.T. has had cuts by Ray Charles, Crystal Gayle, Michael Johnson, Gary Stewart, Ray Stevens, several country acts, and most recently They Call It Love by Bettye Lavette on her classic blues album Scene of the Crime. W.T. fronted his own band, The Bad Eggs, playing jazz and blues infused music at the Bluebird Cafe and across Nashville, in a mood ranging from mellow to driving R & B.  

8-9 p.m.

The Miltons

The Miltons

The Miltons are an American swing ensemble based in Nashville, Tennessee. Their repertoire draws heavily from the height of the Jazz era, when Louis Armstrong and Django Rheinhardt were changing the musical landscape and from the Western Swing developed by Texans Bob Wills and Milton Brown, the underappreciated “Father of Western Swing,” from whom the band takes its name.

The Miltons feature tunes from a myriad of American sub-genres – hot jazz, minstrel songs, country breakdowns, blues, and pure pop standards, all approached from a string band’s perspective – a grand Southern tradition in itself.

9-10 p.m.


Eclectic 5



The Eclectic Five

The Eclectic Five is an all-star acoustic band of musicians, including Holly and Barry Tashian (upright bass, guitar, and vocals), Emily and Al Cantrell (guitar, fiddle, and vocals), and Al Goll (Dobro.)  The Tashians have toured worldwide and made numerous appearances on The Grand Ole Opry, A Prairie Home Companion and many other international radio and television programs. Their songs have been recorded by Kenny Rogers, Solomon Burke, Irish crooner Daniel O’Donnell and others. In 1966, Barry and his band The Remains opened for The Beatles’ last American tour. From 1980 to 1989 Barry toured and recorded with Emmylou Harris’ Hot Band. 

The Cantrells have been featured on Mountain Stage, Riders Radio Theater, Folk SamplereTown and River City Folk, as well as numerous other nationally syndicated radio programs. Their four critically acclaimed albums are on radio playlists worldwide and include the talents of Béla Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Tim O'Brien and Riders in the Sky. 

Goll is an adjunct professor of Dobro at Belmont Academy of Music, and a regular performer and contributor at The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. He has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe playing country, bluegrass and Hawaiian music.
