About the Bands:
Cree Mo: Rock, Blues, Jazz and old school Soul all mixed together into one smooth, intoxicating concoction of original music. @CreeMoSoul
Gio Turra: Trying to make it to the big leagues someday, Gio Turra is a musician greatly influenced by the music of the 60’s and 70’ @thetwotakes
Sir. Crazy Pants: Sir. Crazy Pants doesn’t put on a show that is cute and cuddly. This is a full on bang your head, rock your socks off, rock-n-roll show. Families tend to lose their minds while enjoying an SCP show…. and this makes SCP a happy performer. SCP will provide the comedy and music, but he ask that you simply forget about the world outside and GO CRAZY for the time you are rocking with your new friends at the Sir. Crazy Pants show. Visit sircrazypants.com to see all of the fun.
Bo Bedingfield: Frontman for the Wydelles and long-time local utility player, Bo Bedingfield has been a tall and quiet fixture in the Athens music scene since the early 2000’s. With a dislike of touring and general discomfort with attention, Bo is delighted to work a day job and make beautiful albums in relative secret. Although he once said that his ideal album release would be to hurl a vinyl record into the forest, his latest release, Six Normal Songs, is curiously available on all major streaming services and for HD download at thewydelles.bandcamp.com.
Caroline Aiken: “Years of performing, beginning in 1969 in NY, California, South America, NW and Europe, Caroline Aiken was named “The Best Acoustic Act”(Atlanta Mag) in her birth town of Atlanta, GA. Her rich history includes recording and performing with Bonnie Raitt and the Indigo Girls, opening for Arlo Guthrie, Muddy Waters, Doc Watson, Randy Newman, Little Feat, 38 Special, Beach Boys, Janis Ian, Richie Havens. Caroline appears in regional and national festivals, radio shows, workshops and concert series, supporting 9 nationally acclaimed recordings. Caroline’s “Sensual voice, masterful songwriting, expert guitar” (Victory Music-Seattle) anchored the city’s acoustic and folk scene, influencing up and coming artists whom she took under her wing, including Indigo Girls and Shawn Mullins.” GA MUSIC HALL OF FAME
Dodd Ferrelle & Adam Poulin: Dodd Ferrelle and Adam Poulin are both longtime members of the Athens, Ga. Music Scene and together they make up 2/5ths of Dodd Ferrelle and the WinterVillains. Singer Songwriter Ferrelle and Fiddle Player Poulin, along with their band, are currently working on the WinterVillains debut release with grammy nominated producer John Keane at the helm. The album will be Ferrelle’s 10th release, but the first one with this current lineup. It will feature the distinct Sonic Americana instrumentation the band has forged underneath Ferrelle’s heartfelt lyrics and vocals. The tentatively titled “:Summer Hearts” will be completed this year with a target release date of December 1st, 2020. Ferrelle and Poulin will perform acoustic versions of tracks from the album during this online Marigold Festival celebration that Ferrelle hope will be a small pivot point for the community.
