Join us for what will hopefully be an annual event! Stanley's Pub presents the Ladyfolk Festival! Come check out some of our favorite local female fronted bands! Music starts at 6 PM on the patio stage (weather permitting) and will move inside around 11 or so.
Tickets will be available for $10 presale and $12 day of show!
Acts in headlining order:
Honey & Houston is singer/songwriters Lauren Houston, Heather Turner (Tupelo Honey) with lead instrumentalist Mark Cretcher and Daniel Peterson on drums. Their original folk/americana music blends country and blues influences with sweet "sister" harmonies and a little taste of gypsy on the side.
Maria Carrelli is a Cincinnati-born musician based currently out of the small but vibrant musical community that is Ludlow, Kentucky. Crafting folk based grass roots music, she probes her listeners by baring her soul through song. Her music is heavily influenced by old bluegrass standards, country music through the ages with an essence of modern folk. She has played music throughout the country and alongside various other musicians, weaving her own musical path as she continues to strengthen her songwriting and skill. She's opened for acts such as Billy Strings, Darrell Scott, Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band and Del Mccoury.
"Chelsea Ford and The Trouble features Ford on banjo, with Jonathan on acoustic guitar and Matt Crone on upright bass. The collection of tunes breathes in kicked-up red dust from rural paths and exhales stark, confident Americana, drifting from melancholy reflections to up-tempo, string-band Folk with Bluegrass inflections, complemented with violin, dobro and steel guitar. There are songs about killing a man alongside lover duets and laments about drinks holding on a little too closely. They are heartfelt tunes — played with top-notch skill — that are like pulling open photo albums to present both joyous and distressing recollections."
We are Brian & Char, married to each other and the music! Banjo-flavored covers and originals. Folk, Americana, and bluegrass-inspired sounds.
At the end of the night we will have a little super jam with as many of the band members that we can get involved. This is sure to be a DO NOT MISS event! Get your tickets early!
