Darwin and Dana Nelson - USA
The musical collaboration of husband and wife singer-songwriters, Darwin and Dana Nelson known as ”Double Dee” (aka: The Mayor & First Lady of Lucedale, Ms.) has taken them far from coastal Gulfport and their small town roots of Lucedale, Mississippi and carried them across the country where they have created a name for themselves at numerous songwriting festivals, house concerts, and top flight venues. Darwin and Dana have released seven albums since 2006, including their most recent ”Adjust The Sails”, produced by their friend and legendary singer/songwriter/producer Keith Sykes from Memphis, Tenn. They have been touring in promotion of their new album since the spring.

Vi blandar de mest kända och älskade låtarna med pärlor du sällan eller aldrig hört. Vi kryddar också med lite kuriosa ur Elvis liv och enastående karriär.

David Booth - UK
Singer songwriter from England
Influences from Finn Brothers, Nick Drake, and the raw, unplugged performances from the Seattle “Grunge’ scene of the early ’90s. All funnelled through a music knowledge grown from a childhood playing cornet in brass bands, a youth playing punk rock drums and later, guitar. A reverence for the power and craft of songwriting and the experience of two decades as producer. Like the hills of his native Derbyshire, the voice is weathered, unpolished, honest.
Lousiana Avenue - SWE
This is the band that, since 2012, has offered a carnival atmosphere at festivals and large corporate events, churches, crowded bars and ski lodges! Regardless the weather, time and place, the band succeeds in the art of transporting their audience to New Orleans and Mardi Gras. Music, dance, fellowship, joy and a full brass section. It is not unusual for the evening to end with the audience hooking up in a carnival train…

Amy Lott - USA
Multi-Instrumentalist and Singer-Songwriter, Amy Lott, hails from Meridian, MS, the birthplace of Country Music. Make no mistake though, Amy Lott is not a country artist. Yes, she is influenced by her birthright but Amy has transcended the genre and has created a sound that, while reminiscent of Linda Ronstadt, Flying Burrito Brothers and others, is decidedly her own sound. Amy’s music reflects her own personal struggles and achievements and stands alone as a beacon of optimism.
Kelly Bayfield - UK
Singer Songwriter from England
Kelly Bayfield brings together a perfect blend of classic Laurel Canyon singer-songwriter & folk singing traditions from both sides of the Atlantic. Her pure voice is unmistakably English but finds itself equally at home with Americana, jazz, pop, or country.

In 2021, Self Rising Flour released a full-length album and a Christmas single of their original, straightforward bluegrass music, attracting international attention through the Bluegrass Today news site. You can expect vocal harmonies and tight rhythms, 1970s fashion threads, original compositions, and well-chosen classics.
