    12:00pm - 2:30pm - Jonas FriddleIndie Folk / Americana
    Jonas Friddle and some of his frequent collaborators form a four-piece Americana folk rock band. Drawing from the deep well of American Roots music, they play his original songs alongside energetic arrangements of traditional songs on banjo, guitar, fiddle, bass, drums, and trumpet. Jonas was raised in the mountains of North Carolina and has adopted Chicago as his home, having developed strong ties to the Old Town School of Folk Music.His banjo-driven compositions have received numerous awards including Song of the Year from The John Lennon Songwriting Competition, First Place in the Great American Song Contest and a nomination for Album of the Year in the Independent Music Awards.

    3:30pm - 6:00pm - High Hat Second Line, New Orleans Jazz
    Feeling the need for better, and more authentic New Orleans music in Chicago, Joe Goltz (Youngblood Brass Band, Mama Digdown's Brass Band) set out to put together a group that could play reserved and raucous. From 1920's Jazz to the bombastic beats of Rebirth Brass Band, the current members of High-Hat Second Line are veterans of some of the best Midwest brass bands and jazz groups. While Joe has moved to the east coast, his legacy lives on with the hand-picked talent that is High-Hat Second Line.
