The David Mayfield Parade

The David Mayfield Parade

Grammy-nominated musician and producer David Mayfield is a force of nature on stage. His energy and 'out and out' enthusiasm for performing are evident at every show from clubs to major festivals to opening for The Avett Brothers. Mayfield's songwriting "feels as classic as {his}…wardrobe" says Paste Magazine and Southwest Airlines' Spirit Magazine named The David Mayfield Parade one of the Top 40 Artists To Watch. His debut album "The David Mayfield Parade" is an extension of his irrepressible energy and abundant love for the music that has inspired him over his young lifetime. It listens like an AM radio record with strings and production born out of such classics as Randy Newman's Sail Away or Simon & Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water but without forgetting the fundamentals of rock-n-roll! The David Mayfield Parade's 2011 festival appearances past and upcoming include Bonnaroo, Bristol Rhythm and Roots, Mulberry Mountain and more!

Al Scorch & The Country Soul Ensemble

Grafting literate, character-driven song craft and Mid-American roots with a post-punk DIY attitude, Chicago-based songwriter, performer and instrumentalist Al Scorch charts a new musical topography with a five-string banjo.

Self-described as a “fourth generation Chicagoan, born and bred,” Al recalls that his Missouri-born mother played banjo and had one in the house, while his dad played piano and guitar. “My dad showed me a few things on guitar,” says Al. “When I heard Dolly Parton and Pete Seeger’s records, I thought the banjo was pretty cool.” The sounds of his hometown began with the Irish and Eastern European music transported to the new world. “The WLS Barn Dance was a radio show that predated the Opry,” he notes. “Chicago has music from Appalachian immigrants and jazz musicians from New Orleans and Memphis. A legacy exists, so if you want to take lessons from a 68 year old jazz drummer who played with Ella Fitzgerald you can.”
