The Dinosaur Truckers:
Ever since they started out in 2006, the Dinosaur Truckers have toured excessively all over Europe and gained the reputation of a definite can't miss live band, forcing steaming atmo and dripping sweat at any given show. Whether they play at blazing speed or temporarily slow it down for a somber ballad, they're not the ones to sing about sweet country sunshine but offer up the pure, uncut, unadulterated form – potent and dangerous and not for the faint of heart.
Derek W. Dunn:
Derek W. Dunn, former lead singer/guitarist for the late .357 String Band, returns to the stage with a solo & acoustic set. With influences ranging from Gospel to Bluegrass and from Country Blues to Rock and Roll, Dunn's material is far from "singer-songwriter"; rather, he exists in the jack-of-all-trades realm of the traveling folk musician - Black Country originals exist side by side with earnest Hank Williams covers; a finger-picked ballad precedes a foot-stomping explosion of Blues. With nothing more than an acoustic guitar and a broken tambourine, it's part Woody Guthrie, part Leadbelly, and part Keith Moon.
