Bands & Performers
The festival will also have a focus on the craft of music with live bands on stage all day long. Performer Luke Taylor brings their experiences in jazz, rock, and improvised music together with Garrett Crusan on drums to create a unique blend of original folk, free improvisation, and rock grooves. Performer Foster Powell is a songwriter and composer born in Anacortes, WA and raised in Boston. His tightly arranged, wryly observed pop songs combine Nilsson-esque singer/songwriter classicism with spirited investments in lyrical communication. Originally from Los Angeles, CA, the final performer is Kendall Kirk and he is a lifelong guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter based in Lake Havasu, Arizona. He seamlessly blends originals with classic covers, with inspirations such as The Pretenders, The Who, and The Beatles, with his own unique genre-defying twist.
