Camryn Wessner

Music was always a part of Camryn Wessner’s life growing up. The petite, soft-spoken 20-year-old says she was inspired by her maternal grandmother to join in and sing along with the church congregation as a child. “She had such a good heart – she was the most honest and truthful person I’ve ever known,” says Camryn, who lost her grandmother early last year. Camryn channeled that same honesty and truth into her singing and songwriting on Temporary, her professional debut EP* produced by noted music industry veterans Billy Caldwell and Stan Lynch.

The Moonlighters

Every Thursday a living museum of music history is formed in the band room at Wallace Communty College. Its members come from all walks of life in the Wiregrass for a common purpose: to practice the American Big Band sound that flourished in the 1930s and 40s.

The Wild Fruit

Guitarist Brett Stafford Smith and drummer Jamie Faye Harrell bring a lot of raw energy to their Southern-style music with original songs such as “Modern Day Redneck” and “Urleen Share Your Turnip Greens.” They’ll be performing at the Toadlick Tavern at the music festival on Friday, March 23.

Trees of Adullam

Trees of Adullam grew out of a chance meeting on the worship team at a Celebrate Recovery event at Harvest Church.  Joey and guitarist Seab Miles had been playing in the praise band at Harvest since meeting at a recovery event.  One Sunday, Derek Crowe and his wife Amber attended a recovery event and were introduced to Seab and Joey.  Before long, they bonded over their similar pasts and love of music and began performing together.
