Fresh from winning the Acoustic Artist of the Year award from the Blues Foundation in Memphis, Eric Bibb brings his stellar new band to the stage.

18 South's music is created by a wide array of influences. The organic and earthy quality of their sound rings with overtones of Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz and Gospel. It lends itself perfectly to their stripped down acoustic approach that is truly "Americana". The Band member résumé’s read like an Encyclopedia of Musical History and once you see them live, you'll know why they are individually some the most well respected musicians on the scene today.

Carrie Newcomer has been described as “a soaring songstress” by Billboard, a “prairie mystic” by the Boston Globe. One of the definitive voices of the heartland and progressive spirituality, Newcomer has the ability for sharp observation of the world. Newcomer has attracted a devoted following with her warm voice, exquisite melodies, and an irreverent yet spiritual view of the world. As in the work of poets Mary Oliver and Wendell Berry, Newcomer’s songs are based in the ordinary, and infused with images from the natural world.

From a journey that began in 1992, with two sisters and a friend traveling in a van playing gigs for anyone and anywhere, to half a mission record sales locally and multiple ARIA awards, The Waifs have plenty of tales to tell through their music.
