About the Event
Marcedes Carroll, Singer/Songwriter Marcedes Carroll is a southwestern Montana musician. With a guitar in tow, she bends Americana melodies to her stylistic storytelling.
She’s a powerhouse singer who can boom like Etta and croon like Ella, and she writes visual lyrics that draw upon her the mountains and streams that define the Last Best Place as much as they do her own well-rounded sensibilities.” —Skip Anderson, The Bozone.com
Marcedes plays a mix of originals as well as lively covers including but not limited to Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons, Lucinda Williams, The Band, John Prine, Micky and the Motorcars, and so many more!
In 2017, with the release of her first album "The Gilt Edge Collection" Haeli Allen self-produced her Northwest House Concert Tour playing free concerts in peoples homes, backyards and neighborhoods to collect donations for her project "Long Live Live Music."
Haeli developed the project to promote local, small town live music. Proceeds from "Long Live Live Music" merchandise goes towards bringing live music to rural schools, and small town events that are free to the audience but not at the expense of the artist who is donating their time and talents. Haeli and her family band, The Sightliners just finished their first album in Lubbock, TX with producer Scott Faris of Amusement Park records. Expect an early 2023 release of the record which showcases Haeli Allen original songs done Sightliner style, featuring Kenzie Allen Palmer, Jaxon Allen, and Weston Allen. As well as some tried and true classics for all to enjoy.
Tessy Lou Williams:
After overcoming a paralyzing case of stage fright, Tessy Lou began performing at the historic Pony Bar. Soon after, Tessy Lou and the Shotgun Stars were born, and the trio, including Bryan Paugh (fiddle) and her dad, Kenny Williams (bass), built a following around her home state. The band moved to Austin, Texas, and were discovered by Warehouse Records at Poodie’s Roadhouse, a fitting place for the stars to align for someone whose love of honky-tonks runs deep. The trio released two albums together.
With a lifetime of experience, almost a decade under her belt in the Austin music scene and a new project as a solo artist, one thing is unmistakably clear: lovers of country music should keep their eyes on Tessy Lou Williams. It’s in her blood, after all.
