Greenfest Artist Preview: Drew Kennedy

drew_kennedy-280x210

Drew Kennedy has been a Greenfest anchor for the past nine years, as he has played in some capacity at each of the last nine events.  Since 2009, Drew has hosted our Lone Star Floathouse acoustic river jam portion.  His affable humor, immense talent and welcoming nature have been integral in making the Sunday part of Greenfest such a success.  We are excited to have him back once again in the thick of the Sunday activities at Floathouse.  Join us for what’s become a summer tradition:  Drew’s Floathouse Greenfest set.  You never know who will show up to sit in, listen or participate.  A parrot just might join in.

Greenfest Artist Preview: Aaron Stephens

Greenfest will be presenting a wide array of musical styles.  Country, rock, blues, folk and even soul.  There are a few acts on the bill that pull off each of those styles all on their own.  One such act is folk-soul revivalist Aaron Stephens.  The New Braunfels based artist is turning heads state and region wide with his throwback jams.  He’s managed to mesh Muscle Shoals with Austin and create something all his own.  Come see what the buzz is about at GF14!

Greenfest Artist Preview: Dan Adams

DanHat

Dan Adams first came on our radar a couple years ago via Adam Hood.  Adams was a fellow southeastern expat frustratingly plying his songwriting trade in Nashville.  Through meeting several folks involved in the scene down here, the Georgia native soon realized his music fit more in the Americana/Texas mold than that of the trucks and tailgates Music Row rage.   A few acoustic touring runs, some successful networking and a full stakes-pulling move of he and his family to Austin has provided the background for a wholly satisfying new album entitled Live Oaks and Lights. Come hear Adams perform tunes from that album and more.  Heck, he may even jam one with his old buddy Adam Hood.

Greenfest Artist Preview: Brandy Zdan

Nobody is making the Greenfest run from a point further than Brandy Zdan.  The multi-talented songwriter and musician comes to us from Canada.  Last year, she graced us with her presence onstage at RRIH with K Phillips full band venture and then hopped up to sing a couple tunes at the Float House.  During her set, she rightly chided us for not including more females in the lineup.  We’ve rectified that this year, and with Brandy atop the list.  She’s collaborated with a number of artists, many of whom will be in attendance at GF14.  Her songs are beautifully crafted and performed, you will be able to hear that beauty firsthand at the Float House.  Come see Canada’s greatest export, the music of Brandy Zdan.

Greenfest Artist Preview: Leroy Powell

Of all the acts on the GF14 bill, Leroy Powell might be the biggest mystery to many fans.  You may not know his name yet, but you definitely will after next weekend.  You almost certainly already know his music too, whether you realize it or not.  Powell is a highly demanded producer, songwriter and session musician that has worked with the likes of Sturgill Simpson, Whiskey Myers and most infamously Shooter Jennings.  Powell’s brand of music is honky-tonk throwback with heavy doses of ear-splitting rock n’ roll.  He calls his backing band the Messengers, and he is coming down to Texas to deliver a message at GF14.  Jump on the Powell bandwagon now and get ready for a grooving set of country, rock, soul and more.  This guy is a certified badass that is respected throughout the industry by all of your favorite artists…come see why at GF14.
