Bands & Performers
The festival will also focus on the craft of music with live bands on stage throughout the day. Performer Luke Taylor brings their experiences in jazz, rock and improvised music together with Garrett Crusan on drums to create a unique blend of original folk, free improvisation and groove rock. Performer Foster Powell is a songwriter and composer born in Anacortes, WA and raised in Boston. His well-arranged, wryly observed pop songs combine Nilsson-style singer/songwriter classicism with strong investments in lyrical communication. Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, the final performer is Kendall Kirk and he is a lifelong guitarist, vocalist and songwriter based in Lake Havasu, Arizona. He seamlessly mixes originals with classic covers, with inspirations from the likes of The Pretenders, The Who and The Beatles, with his own unique genre-defying twist.
