Jim Trace and the Makers

Jim Trace and the Makers

Jim Trace and the Makers formed in 2014 for a small festival gig in Anderson, Ohio. Singer-Songwriter Austin Reid collaborated with friends and fellow singer-songwriter Mark Szwejkowski, guitarist Payne Rankin, and also drummer Brendan O'Brien to put together a folk rock group. Austin and Payne dropped their guitars for a banjo and a mandolin respectively and they all immediately began to write new music in order to satisfy the new band's creative direction.

After a year of playing together, the band has fallen in love with Cincinnati’s music scene, collaborating with other great area bands and playing from the west side to the east side in pizza shops, pubs, and waffle joints to some of the best music venues in the city like MOTR and The Thompson House. This summer they are working with Bearcast Media at the University of Cincinnati to begin work on an album.



Full band set at 7pm; solo at 10pm.
