10 am - Little Baby - Pearl Derringer, Margo Price
In looking for a biography to share about this artist Pearl Derringer, it seems there are more questions than answers. The songwriter chooses to remain anonymous with the music speaking for itself.

11 am - Room for Us All - Effie Zilch, Miko Marks
Effie Zilch is not an individual. Effie Zilch is an idea, a muse, a guiding light - it’s also a rock and roll band.

1 pm - Let's Take It Too Far - Fruition
