Kevn Kinney

Kevn Kinney is most widely known as founder and frontman of Atlanta-based rock band Drivin-N-Cryin. A highly-acclaimed singer, songwriter, musician, performer, visual artist and poet, he has recently been inducted into both the Wisconsin Music Hall of Fame and Georgia Music Hall of Fame for his impactful legacy of art. Kinney has released multiple critically acclaimed solo and band recordings during his career having also collaborated with Warren Haynes, REM, The Who and John Popper, among others. Peter Buck of REM has produced and performed on several of Kevn’s albums and continues to be involved in his career. Kevn Kinney has continuously toured full-time with his band Drivin n Cryin while simultaneously carving out a niche for himself as a solo artist. From the festival stage to the smallest house concert, fans are always excited at the opportunity to see him up close and personal in a stripped-down acoustic setting.

Recent touring include multiple dates with the Indigo Girls, Blackberry Smoke, The Black Crowes and others. His latest solo studio album Think About It was released in 2022. In Fall 2023 the first release of the Let’s Go Dancin’: A Compilation Celebrating The Songs Of Kevn Kinney four-album vinyl series came out with over 100 digital recorded titles slated to go through end of 2024. The project is a massive all-star tribute to songwriter, poet, performer Kevn Kinney. Tracks from Jason Isbell, Violent Femmes, Shovels & Rope, Mike Farris, Great Peacock and dozens more will be released.

Stevie Tombstone

Best-kept secret, Stevie Tombstone, is a quintessential troubadour, a veteran musician who crafts powerful folk songs tinged with classic country and vintage blues influences.

There are many different species of the Music Artist. Various combinations of singers, songwriters and entertainers. But it’s the ones that wear their art that get to us the most. The ones that don’t know how not to tell the truth in their music and reveal the raw and ragged triumphs that in the end are more beautiful because of the honesty of the struggle. These are the Artists that get in our bones and shake loose our demons by slaying their own with chords and words. Artists like Johnny Cash, Janis Joplin…and Stevie Tombstone.” Outlaw Magazine

Stevie Tombstone’s saga canopies like a rock n’ roll oak, the kind with wild, ever-searching roots that tangle and gnarl above the earth. Career-wise, his boxset would be monstrous, a cornucopia of lost highway narratives hauled from Georgia to Texas to California to New York and all points in between, shredding rockabilly gospel and living the troubadour’s lovely curse one song at a time.

* Show is for all ages. Attendees under 18 must be accompanied by a parent. Attendees under 21 will be subject to a $5 surcharge. The surcharge must be paid in cash at the door on the day of the event.
