Canyon Kids – Legend has it that the Canyon Kids were born by the river. The shady groves along the Snake River canyon’s steep banks would be the perfect sanctuary for just about any singer songwriter with a beat up old guitar—and so it was with friends Bo Elledge and Dusty Nichols. Confined to the river, the job was to kill time with music. They would write folky strums and rich harmony, coming up with several songs that summer. With the help of drummer John Harris and bassist Adam Woolley, Canyon Kids would now have a driving rhythm underneath their arrangements. But they needed more: enlisting fiddler extraordinaire Matt Herron to the ranks, and soul specialist Sheena Dhamsania to their vocal lineup, the formation was now complete. Canyon Kids now has two full length LPs under their belt, and according to Jackson Hole Music Blog they “embody a production aesthetic rare to the regional scene” and have “a vocal sound that equates to the smoothness of several coats of fine varnish on an old wooden boat.” It is this sound that has garnered Canyon Kids supporting slots with some of the country’s best national touring acts, including The Suffers, G Love & The Special Sauce, Galactic, Lukas Nelson, and the Infamous Stringdusters. The Canyon Kids are no strangers to some heavy rock n’ roll..because like the river they came from, it can be gentle, but it also has serious bite.
Patrick Chadwick – When singer-songwriter Patrick Chadwick moved from Boston to Jackson, Wyoming seven years ago, his only major reservation was leaving a bustling music scene behind as he traded a cultural hub for a somewhat sheltered mountain town. To his surprise though, Jackson Hole was actually brimming with talented musicians who were deeply supported by the community and uniquely influenced by the area’s natural beauty. Before long, Chadwick had new songs and a folk/bluegrass group called The Flannel Attractions, which attracted a passionate following, national airplay and a spot on Paste Magazine’s “Nine Wyoming Bands You Should Listen to Now.”

The Minor Keys are a Jackson Hole swing jazz and old time blues band playing music from days gone by. The Minor Keys’ sound lays somewhere between the quartet and quintet bands of the swing era, the jump blues of the honky tonks, and the old-time revelers who made up the sound of the country. Their music ranges from the classics of Fats Waller, Louis Jordan, and Django Reinhardt to the more obscure sounds of Slim and Slam and the modern musings of Andrew Bird and the Red Stick Ramblers. This influential, jumping, swinging sound will bring you back to days of old.
