Side Track is a Northeast Florida acoustic-electric duo featuring vocalist Terry Whitehead and guitarist Dave Knopsnyder. Whitehead is a songwriter who has released two Americana albums that can be sampled on His latest album, “Garden"" is currently nominated for Best Contemporary Album by "Just Plain Folks Music" Awards. His singing style is like a baritone crooner with a southern, soulful sound. In Knopsnyder's early days, he was a professional musician as a lead guitarist in the Indiana based touring band Carnival, who shared the stage with many well-known 60’s & 70’s pop-rock/R&B acts. Both retired from corporate careers and have been performing together for seven years. Side Track has a repertoire that allows them to adapt to a variety of venues, and cover music spanning several decades.

Dixie Rodeo is Tamara Colonna and Bill Gibson, a multi-award winning duo from Jacksonville, Florida. Southern raised and submerged in its mystique and charms, they met while playing in the Americana band Red Afternoon, and discovered their shared passion for original music that incorporates elements of the South and the West. Their songs express original storytelling and poetry with exquisite imagery, and are tied together in their “Renegade Folk” signature sound with unique instrumentation and soulful harmonies. They hope their listeners will be transported by their emotions to the places in the stories they tell.

Red Afternoon - We are delighted to treat our audience with a rare “Red Afternoon Reunion” for the last act of the evening, as four out of the six original artists in the band are none other than the members of Dixie Rodeo and Side Track. Red Afternoon is an Americana band which highlights mesmerizing sibling-like harmonies and first class instrumentation, performing songs you may not have heard before, but will certainly want to hear again.
