Oak Street Ramblers (Madison, WI)
Oak Street Ramblers (Madison, WI)
Though their influences hail from much further south, the Oak Street Ramblers call home the East Side of Madison, WI. A bluegrass band in the tradition of Flatt and Scruggs, Jimmy Martin, and Hazel Dickens, the Oak Street Ramblers specialize in bluegrass stompers, classic country weepers, and originals that, lyrical content aside, wouldn't sound out of place at a barn dance circa 1954.
Tight vocal harmonies figure prominently into the Oak Street Ramblers' sound, and the group features no less than five singers ready to take the microphone at any given time. The band is comprised of Ian Alderman on guitar and dobro, Willie Jones on mandolin, Jeff Kunkle on bass, Betty Stattelman-Scanlan on guitar, Mark Schlutt on banjo, and Tina Thompson on fiddle.
The Ramblers started playing out at the legendary Wonder's Pub in 2004, and they currently have monthly shows at the Alchemy Cafe and the Malt House. They have acquired a solid fan base and have been voted a favorite Madison-area folk/bluegrass band.
The Oak Street Ramblers have also performed the Barrymore Theater, the Marquette Waterfront Festival, and the Brooklyn Bluegrass Festival. They have opened up for bluegrass legends James King and Audie Blaylock and shared bills with up-and-comers like Greensky Bluegrass and Head for the Hills. The Ramblers have received numerous accolades in the press, enjoyed radio support, performed live on television, and played to enthusiastic crowds across the Midwest. They are also available for private parties and functions.
The band recently released its debut, eponymous CD, which features 14 tracks of original and traditional bluegrass fare. The album has enjoyed brisk sales and has received both radio play and positive reviews. The Ramblers were also featured on the holiday compilation "Season's Greetings from Madison, WI".
Kent Rose
Kent Rose
If you didn’t know better, Kent Rose might appear a throwback to the days when country singers were guitar-toting troubadours. He dons fancy Western regalia for his gigs, calling himself “the Voice That Remembers.”
However, Kent’s musical concept is anything but old-fashioned. His influences on this all-original album are unabashedly vintage—Buddy Holly, Hank Williams, maybe a little Roy Orbison. But his writing is fresh and vibrant, his voice ringing and vital.
On All That American Night, he’s backed by a sizzling band. Instead of recording near home, Rose and producer Chris Casello journeyed to Nashville’s Fry Pharmacy Recording with studio vets Jimmy Johnson on bass and John McTigue on drums. Casello doubled as the primary guitarist.

OFFICIAL CD RELEASE AT DAY IN THE COUNTRY AT THE HIDEOUT
Kent Rose recently released his first full length, full band CD, All That American Night. Recorded in Nashville, produced and arranged by Chris Casello, you can hear it LIVE with the Chris Casello Trio at Day in the Country! Buy a copy to take home.
The Lawrence Peters Outfit
The Lawrence Peters Outfit
Two-time Grammy-winning singer and master songwriter Jim Lauderdale is both a "songwriter's songwriter," who's written/co-written many modern classics for iconic artists, as well as an intuitive sideman, who's enhanced the music of a bevy of esteemed musicians. As a solo artist, since 1986 up until now, he's created a body work spanning 28 albums of imaginative roots music, encompassing country, bluegrass, soul, R&B and rock. Along the way he's won awards, garnered critical acclaim, and earned himself an engaged fan base. Today Jim treats his fans to a new adventure, exploring the redemptive traditional sounds of Memphis and Nashville with his double album, Soul Searching: Vol. 1 Memphis/Vol. 2. Nashville (Sky Crunch Records).

This profound entry in Jim's artistic continuum represents an immersive journey into the heart of Americana music different than any of Jim's previous work. Jim recorded each album in hallowed halls with some of the finest and most respected purveyors of these soulfully indigenous sounds. Both albums feature roots savants Luther and Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars playing. Vol. 1 Memphis was tracked at the legendary Royal Studios, home base for producer Willie Mitchell and Hi Records, and where classic Al Green songs such as "Tired Of Being Alone" and "Let's Stay Together" were cut, along with R&B smashes from Ann Peebles, Otis Clay, and Bobby "Blue" Bland. Jim produced the album with Luther and Boo Mitchell, calling on some of Memphis' finest musicians including Charles and Leroy Hodges, Alvin Youngblood Hart and others, to capture the city's unique sound. Vol. 2 Nashville, produced by Jim and Luther, was tracked at the historic Nashville Victor Studio A, a treasure of recording history; the site of iconic sessions by such artists as Dolly Parton, Waylon Jennings, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, George Jones, among many others. Jim's recording was a celebration of the studio beingsaved after a prolonged fight to keep its doors open. Soul Searching: Vol. 1 Memphis/Vol. 2. Nashville (Sky Crunch Records) is a 26-song release available as a double album, and, conveniently, as individual albums.

Throughout his three-decade career, Jim Lauderdale has helped pave the way for the current Americana movement, recording albums and writing songs that cross genres from country, rock, folk and bluegrass. Jim has written songs and worked with some of the finest artists in traditional and modern music, including Robert Hunter, Ralph Stanley, Elvis Costello, George Strait, Buddy Miller, Lucinda Williams, John Oates, Solomon Burke, Lee Ann Womack, Old Crow Medicine Show, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Blake Shelton, the Dixie Chicks, Vince Gill, Patty Loveless, and Gary Allan among many, many others. He also co-hosts a weekly radio show on SiriusXM with Buddy Miller, "The Buddy & Jim Show," which NPR's Fresh Air described as "...highly entertaining..." He is also co-host of Music City Roots, the weekly live and radio, podcast and PBS series.

In 2014, the documentary, Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts, was released, celebrating Jim's unconventional career. In 2010, Jim was honored with the SESAC Inspiration Award. Most recently, he received the prestigious American Eagle Award from the National Music Council along with Kris Kristofferson.

The Lawrence Peters Outfit plays un-ruined country music, a term Lawrence coined to describe their fiery, deep-rooted honky tonk sound. Best known for his lead vocal on "The Old Black Hen", on the watershed Songs: Ohia/ Magnolia Electric Company album, Peters leads the "Outfit" through his own finely crafted originals, and cherry-picked classics. The band is a super-group of Chi-Town pickers, including Matt Gandurski on lead guitar, Dave Sisson on rhythm guitar and harmonies, and Josh Piet on upright bass.
Big Sadie
Big Sadie
Big Sadie is a Chicago-based acoustic band fronted by Elise Bergman (upright bass, vocals) and Collin Moore (guitar, vocals). Defined by rich, intricate harmonies and rustic yet sophisticated instrumental arrangements, Big Sadie takes a modern yet timeless approach to American roots music.

Bergman and Moore have been playing music together for over a decade. Through the years, the duo has amassed an extensive repertoire of bluegrass, old-time, early country, and blues. They introduce their first collection of original compositions with their debut album, Keep Me Waiting—recorded by Alex Hall, out May 19, 2017 on Spindle Tree Records.

Joining Bergman and Moore on the album are Big Sadie members Andy Malloy (banjo, vocals) and Matt Brown (fiddle, vocals). Long-time Big Sadie friend and collaborator, Jess McIntosh, sings harmony vocals on the title track.

After several appearances with the band, Malloy and Brown officially joined Big Sadie in mid-2016. With the addition of Malloy’s energetic and inventive banjo playing and Brown’s masterful fiddling, Big Sadie is quickly gaining recognition for their compelling songwriting, skillful playing, and dynamic live performance.
Cochino Y Los Pistoleros
Cochino Y Los Pistoleros
Through barroom bands and brawls, drunken misadventures, illegal activities, terrible horsemanship and some charismatic gun play, the Pistoleros came to the attention of a gruesome creature (feared by all, loved by none) known only as “Cochino”. Cochino surrounds himself with the best of the worst. He loves only music, liquor, guns, weed, and women (in that order). In his travels he discovered a band whose players had all the most detestable qualities: the Pistoleros. He hired them to be the house band in his favorite brothel: the Dry Gulch Saloon. Out of the smoke stained walls, beer soaked floors and dim, sweaty bedrooms came the sounds of none other than the likes of Cochino y los Pistoleros. The rest is stuff of legend and history in the making. (tall tales included
Coyote Riot
Coyote Riot
Coyote Riot has its roots set deep in old folk and country/blue grass string sounds of the past and present. The twang of the rockabilly stile guitar sits nicely with the pluc of the bass and the chuck of the tenor banjo, while the harmonica and fiddle harmonize like crickets in heat. A recipe gaurenteed to have you hootin and hollerin with your foot-a-stompin.
Gin Palace Jesters
Gin Palace Jesters
"Chicago's original honky-tonk fools," the Gin Palace Jesters are purveyors of the finest in hard hitting hillbilly Honky-tonk, Country Boogie and Western Swing . Infused with a deep and sincere fondness for all traditional American musical styles, the sound of the Gin Palace Jesters could best be described as being akin to the sounds of Country Music's "Golden" age. Although a portion of their live performances come from their vast catalog of the Hillbilly & Country Hit Parade, these boys are not mere followers or imitators. They also posses the talent of 3 songwriters performing original novelty numbers, heartfelt love songs, honky-tonk weepers, drinking songs and dark ballads. Delivering 3 and 4 part country harmony, the Gin Palace Jesters prove that authentic country and cowboy music can still hold validity in both traditional songs as well as brand new originals. The Gin Palace Jesters are a true authentic American band often seen holding court where the thrones are bar stools, the lights are made of neon, the holy spirits are served on the rocks, and Hank Williams is King.

Glass Mountain
Glass Mountain
Inspired by a love of old-time and early country, the women of Glass Mountain make music that captures the grit and beauty of the American folk tradition. The trio of singers and multi-instrumentalists first met through their involvement in Chicago’s folk music scene, and quickly found a kinship playing heartsick love songs, dark mountain ballads, and blazing fiddle tunes. They each bring a different musical vision and experience - with backgrounds in classical performance, old-time jams, and the singer-songwriter circuit - to create a sound that both celebrates and moves beyond the traditional.
The Mountainaires
