Andy C. Jenkins - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Andy C. Jenkins


Japanese highways twist and turn along the country’s western coast, following lush mountains and a shimmery blue sea, inspiring the latest solo work from Andy C. Jenkins of The Great White Jenkins’. On “Lazy Coast,” Jenkins draws from the refreshing scenery that he witnessed during his time spent in Japan, emulating his enamored feeling for the sounds that radiate from those winding roads. At times, “Lazy Coast” grinds and grooves like a car engine. Jenkins’ vocals carry the song by capturing that blissful feeling of ignoring your obligations and driving with the windows down, while its featured guitar solo from Stephen Cooper of Cloud Becomes Your Hand gives the track a tangible density. Jenkins calls the song an “ode to sound,” so drown out everything else and lose yourself in the “buzz and hum, rasp and moan” of “Lazy Coast.”
Luray - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Luray
Luray creates strange and lovely bedfellows of sound – banjo layered over ambient sounds make up this once bluegrass-picking songwriter’s approach to making music. The end result is somewhere between the likes of Iron & Wine and Emmylou Harris. Luray’s debut album The Wilder was called "beautifully lush” by Bob Boilen of NPR. Luray has been featured on NPR's All Songs Considered, Daytrotter, WXPN, and Mountain Stage and has been reviewed by the Washington Post, CMT Edge, Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and Utne Reader. Luray is based in Richmond, Virginia and their second album will be released soon.
