Music on Main 2019
Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds with Sister Karee & The Other Brothers
For nearly a decade, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds have been hailed for their explosive brand of modern soul, equally celebrated for their three studio albums and electrifying live performances. Lead singer Arleigh Kincheloe is known far and wide for her impossibly big voice that will blow you away to start the Music on Main season.
Turkuaz with Canyon Kids
Energetic splashes of funk, alternative, rock, R&B, and psychedelia color the music of Turkuaz. Balancing male-female harmonies, strutting guitars, wild horn arrangements, and interminable grooves, this spirit takes shape in the color donned by each respective member on stage nightly via larger-than-life performances.
Carrie Rodriguez with Teton Traveling Allstars
Carrie Rodriguez, a singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas, finds beauty in the cross-pollination of diverse traditions. A passionate performer, she effortlessly melds fiery fiddle playing, electrifying vocals and a fresh interpretation of new and classic songs with an “Ameri-Chicana” attitude. Her newest project, the upcoming Spanish/English album Lola, is both a return to her musical roots and something of a departure where she delivers her own twangy, Texas-bred twist on Mexican Ranchera songs, creating culturally blended music for a culturally blended world.
Remember Jones with Casey Jack Kristofferson Band
Remember Jones is a one-of-a-kind soul/pop singer, storyteller and bandleader with a throwback vibe and authentic energy. Collaboratively supported by a large ensemble of musicians (often featuring female backing vocalists, a horn section, and a six-piece rhythm section), the band has played to countless packed and sold-out ballrooms, clubs and theaters throughout the country.
Young Dubliners with Wyatt Lowe & The Mayhem Kings
A Music on Main must-see act returns to Victor in the Young Dubliners. The group’s live shows are known for upbeat, energetic delivery that will rock the stage all night with Celtic Rock and other crowd favorites.
Pinky & The Floyd with The Balsamroots
Pinky and the Floyd has a big sound and is an experience not soon forgotten. You can expect albums in their entirety, and a little something from every Floyd genre – from Syd Barrett to Division Bell, and everything in between. The band has exploded in popularity, selling out shows with an intimacy & intensity unmatched!
The Accidentals with Aaron Davis & The Mystery Machine
Multi-instrumental power trio The Accidentals are a young band on the rise. Billboard Magazine says, “The Accidentals display a genre-hopping range of influences and some smart songwriting skills to go with their abundant musical chops.” Texas Lifestyle Magazine made The Accidentals their “must-see” band of SXSW 2018, and staff writer Daniel Ramirez raves about their live show, saying, “They are defiant, young, powerful, and undaunted. You’re gonna wanna say you saw them before they were everywhere”.
Reckless Kelly with Dirt Road Band – August 15th
Grammy-nominated Reckless Kelly returns to their Idaho roots for a legendary free show in Victor.
Understanding the virtuosity of Reckless Kelly requires the perspective of where the band has been. Cody and Willy Braun grew up in Stanley, Idaho. They moved to Bend, Oregon, and then migrated to that great musical fountainhead, Austin, Texas.
The band’s co-founders and frontmen toured the country as part of their father’s band, Muzzie Braun and the Boys, as children.
We came along in that second wave of the movement,” Cody Braun says. “Son Volt’s album Trace had a major effect on us. People like Joe Ely, Ray Kennedy and Robert Earl Keen were always big supporters. Our goal was to make music that had a country vibe but a solid rock edge.”
As Music Row magazine proclaimed, “In my perfect world, this is what country radio would sound like.”
“This” is Reckless Kelly.
