5:00pm Saturday, May 24th
7th Annual Kearney Blues Festival
Featuring: Samantha Fish, Katy Guillen & The Girls, Brandon Miller Band and South Side Souls

Price: $5.00 Online or $15.00 at the Gate
Just a few months ago, very few people outside Kansas City, Missouri knew there was a young, dynamic musician named Samantha Fish getting ready to take the world by storm. In fact, it's not all that long ago that the 22-year-old singer/guitarist first discovered the blues and started paying her dues on that city's local scene. Her deceptively mature voice is sultry, yet innocent at the same time, while she intensely wails away on guitar. This deveptively mature young woman has set out to show the world that although she may be young, she can certainly wail the Blues.

7:00pm Saturday, June 14th
with Special Guest: Rickie Lee Tanner

Price: $15.00 Online or $25.00 at the Gate
Parmalee's country rock sound has its roots in the bluegrass, traditional country, southern rock and blues covers the guys grew up hearing their families play. Matt and Scott Thomas grew up near Greenville, NC watching their father Jerry front a popular local southern rock blues band. The boys watched and learned, picking up their own instruments and jamming along with their dad's band. From this they learned how to integrate their own style into the songs they were playing. Barry Knox, who played drums for the church choir, loved what his cousins were doing and soon joined them.

Little Bit O' Bluegrass
Featuring: Loaded Goat, Konza Swamp Band and The Sterlings

Price: $5.00 Online or $15.00 at the Gate
Loaded Goat is a mad mash of bluegrass, old-time, honky-tonk music. To activate: Flick a little moonshine in it's face and get ready for some banjo for your ear-holes. Playing a predominantly original catalog of heartbreak and headache, Loaded Goat will occasionally surprise with the surprising cover song. Loaded Goat is great for bars, campfire jams, weddings, cowboy saloon shootouts, Rural Grit Happy Hour, and more, more, more.

    After the kingdom of Arendelle is cast into eternal winter by the powerful Snow Queen Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), her sprightly sister Anna (Kristen Bell) teams up with a rough-hewn mountaineer named Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his trusty reindeer Sven to break the icy spell.

    Thompson Square
    with Special Guest: 6 Degrees West

    Price: $25.00 Online or $35.00 at the Gate
    In the world of entertainment, music arguably demands the most personal investment from its artists, and it doesn't get any more intimate than Thompson Square. While most celebrities go to tremendous lengths and expense to carve out personal space in a Twitter-manic, paparazzi-fueled culture, husband and wife Keifer and Shawna Thompson veil no aspects of their relationship. In fact, they put their 13-year marriage on display in each song and, night after night, on tour. Hence, their sophomore album Just Feels Good is a compelling view of a relationship that offers no distinction between the personal and the professional.

    LeAnn Rimes
    with Special Guest: Travis Marvin

    Price: $25.00 Online or $35.00 at the Gate
    Most bios for albums talk about the artist's achievements and accolades, but you all can Google that. I don't want to do that at this point in my life. I've been making music for eighteen years, but I've never felt like people really saw me as a person. They saw me as a prodigy with a big voice. I felt like an alien child. I don't want to be "LeAnn Rimes," a name in lights. I want people who listen to my music to see me, know me, recognize me, as a normal human being who can sing and write and, I hope, connect with me through my music in a deeper way than ever before.
