Lindi Ortega

Lindi Ortega is a Canadian singer-songwriter from Toronto, Ontario who now lives in Nashville, Tennessee. Her voice has been described as a blend of Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, and Emmylou Harris.

Smooth Hound Smith is an American roots duo formed in 2012 and comprised of one-man-band Zack Smith (guitar/vocals/foot drums/harmonica/banjo) and Caitlin Doyle (vocals/percussion). Based in Nashville, Tennessee, they record and perform their own unique style of folksy, garage-infused R&B that makes use of foot percussion; fuzzed-out, finger-picked guitar; warbling harmonicas; tasty harmonies; and plenty of tambourine. They strive to present a modern interpretation of early blues, soul, and rock 'n' roll.

Dan Tedesco is a modern-day troubadour who uses big sounds to narrate the American experience. His stage show, though it has a minimalist production, finds him belting out folk and rock while using acoustic and electric guitars and foot-stomping percussion, with interludes at the piano to slightly lighten the mood.

Hippo Campus

Hippo Campus is four Minnesotan boys making music that is simple, joyful, and thematically soaked with the sense of cynicism accompanying the youthful search for meaning. With the philosophy that there is beauty among thorns, the band presented their debut EP, Bashful Creatures, in 2014. It was recorded over two days at Pachyderm Studios in Cannon Falls, Minnesota, and was produced by Low’s Alan Sparhawk. 

Yabadum will also perform.
