Start off your Memorial Day weekend with another selection of new music. This week's artists include Grace Potter, Dan Tyminski, Leftover Salmon and many others. It's all right here and fresh on KPCW!

9 a.m. - Deer Tick - Forgiving Ties
Deer Tick got together as a band in the Providence, Rhode Island area in 2004. They attribute their unfaltering chemistry as musicians and friends to a shared sense of humor. And yes, the band's name came from finding a deer tick stuck in the scalp of front man John J. McCauley.

10 a.m. - Greensky Bluegrass - Congratulations and Condolences
Since their 2000 formation in Kalamazoo, Michigan, this quintet has progressed into a phenomenon in their own right, ushering the tradition of bluegrass music forward. They say," We take a lot of pride in how we grow and challenge each other. We’re maturing together. We get more Greensky all of the time.” Greensky Bluegrass will be performing 2 shows at Deer Valley's Snowpark Outdoor Amphitheatre on August 5th and 6th.

11 a.m. - Lindsay Ell - Sweet Spot

In 2021, Grace Potter took to the road for the solace and clearing that can happen on a solo road-trip.

Grace Potter will be performing at Red Butte Garden in Salt Lake City on June 11th.

7 p.m. - Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers - Spinning Out
The band's website tells us that "a ride on the Rainbow will take you across the mountains of Motown, through the fjords of folk, over the archipelago of Americana, and - at last - into a funky firth, where only the fiercest of friendships can be found."

8 p.m. - Bethany Cosentino - It's Fine
Singer/songwriter Bethany Cosentino takes a break from her band Best Coast to embark on a solo effort with a new album titled "Natural Disaster."
