Scheduled to perform are Birds With Fleas, Los Colognes, The Gibson Brothers and Dave Eggar & Deoro with the Craig Street Ramblers.
Birds With Fleas features smooth harmonies, banjo and ukulele in its brand of Americana music.
Los Colognes has built its sound around the individual members' vast record collections, which include works ranging from British rock band Dire Straits to rockabilly artist J.J. Cale, an originator of the Tulsa Sound.
The Gibson Brothers - Eric and Leigh - play traditional bluegrass music. They're known for skilled instrumentation and tight harmonies.
Eggar is a Grammy-nominated cellist based in New York who has recorded with The Who, Coldplay, Beyonce and Pearl Jam, among other notable acts. His band, Deoro, features Chuck Palmer on drums/percussion and Ariel DelaPortilla on bass.
