The Back Porch Project has combined their diverse musical backgrounds of folk, blues, classic rock, jam band and country to create their own brand of indie folk.

"This crew is truly amazing. Incredible musical talent abounds. What a treat to hear."

The Alma Latina Dance will feature DJ and program host Aline spinning discs of some of the finest Latin music on the world scene. A 2-hour festive and spirited celebration of music and culture that will also be broadcast from the stage on KZYX.

The Real Sarahs are rising stars in the West Coast Americana scene. They have distinguished themselves as skillful harmony singers and evocative songwriters. This ensemble creates magic with voices in harmony, acoustic instruments, and the energetic connection between artists and audience.

Roy Rogers and the Delta Rhythm Kings have continued to bring the blues to its legions of fans around the world. Rogers is the reigning king of slide guitar with a distinctive and instantly recognizable style.

"That's not a slide on Roy Rogers pinky, it's a time machine. With it he transports you to the Mississippi Deltas past and future." --Guitar Player magazine

Keystone Revisited featuring Tony Saunders. When Merl Saunders and Jerry Garcia got together it was pure magic. They were in these groups: Merl Saunders and Jerry Garcia, Reconstruction and Legion of Mary, which were on the forefront of the Jam Band era. What better way to pay homage to these legendary players than by having Bill Vitt, who played with Merl and Jerry, Tony Saunders, Merl's son who started playing with them when he was 18, and Jeff Pevar, who has played with Phil Lesh and Friends and Jazz is Dead.
