Jim Lauderdale (all 12/9/13 tickets honored)

Jim Lauderdale is a multi-talented performer and songwriter, with successes in both country and bluegrass music. His roots stem from the Carolinas, yet his career has taken him all over the United States and abroad, making him an international recording artist with an ever-growing fan base. Jim won "Artist of the Year" and "Song of the Year" at the first "Honors and Awards Show" held by the Americana Music Association in 2002. Subsequently, he has hosted this same show for the last seven years.

Jim's musical influences include the legendary Dr. Ralph Stanley and George Jones. These influences and his unique sense of melody and lyric help forge a sound that is truly his own. He is a 2 time Grammy winner, winning his first in 2002 with Dr. Ralph Stanley for "Lost in the Lonesome Pines" (Dualtone). His next one came for his second "solo" bluegrass album, "The Bluegrass Diaries" (Yep Roc 2007) at the 50th Grammy Awards! His first CD with Dr. Stanley, "I Feel Like Singing Today" ( Dualtone/Rebel 1999) received a Grammy nomination as did his first solo bluegrass CD titled "Bluegrass"(Yep Roc) from 2006.

The remainder of Jim's 18 albums include: "Planet of Love" (Reprise 1991), "Pretty Close to the Truth" (Atlantic 1994), "Every Second Counts" (Atlantic 1995), "Persimmons" (Upstart 1998), "Whisper" (BNA 1998), "Onward Through It All" (RCA 1999), "The Other Sessions" (Dualtone 2001), "The Hummingbirds" (Dualtone 2002), "Bluegrass" (Yep Roc 2006), "Country Super Hits, Volume 1″ (Yep Roc 2006), "Honey Songs" (Yep Roc 2008), "Could We Get Any Closer?" (SkyCrunch 2009) and "Patchwork River" (Thirty Tigers 2010).

"It's been a particularly great period for me," says Lauderdale. "Thanks to the records – I'm performing more and more, which I love. And I love that I can play the Opry one weekend, a jam-band festival the next and then a bluegrass festival the following week. That's really inspiring to me and I think there's a real thread there. The roots are the same for all of them and that's the music I'm interested in."

Natalie York

"Vienna's Natalie York is on the rise." Washingtonian

"This Vienna native has got the voice, songwriting ability and know-how to make it big. With the release of her first album at the age of only 21, she is quickly crooning her way toward a bright future in the music industry." Northern Virginia Magazine

Natalie York is a DC-based singer/songwriter who combines the sass of the Stax soul sound and the sensitivity of contemporary folk to produce viscerally romantic songs to tug at your heartstrings and haunt your dreams. Her debut album, "Threads," was named one of the best local releases of 2010 by The Washington Post, which highlights Natalie's "soulful and warm vocals" and "sophisticated palette." Drawing comparisons to Grace Potter, Corinne Bailey Rae, Norah Jones, Bonnie Raitt and even Janis Joplin, Natalie's music proves to be something very special all her own. This 22-year-old sensation is a graduate of the University of Miami, where she studied jazz and was the first graduate from the Bruce Hornsby Creative American Music Program. She has performed and worked with Grammy winners Jonny Lang, Bruce Hornsby, Shawn Colvin, Lamont Dozier, Jim Lauderdale, Jon Secada and Phil Ramone.
