Singer-songwriter Amanda Shires, current nominee for the Americana Music Association’s Emerging Artist of the Year and violinist for Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, opens this eclectic afternoon of music with a solo set of fiddle-driven folk. Then, six-time Grammy-winning accordionist and conjunto pioneer Flaco Jiménez brings his legendary virtuosity to Tejano waltzes, polkas, and party music. To close, Cory Chisel, Robert Ellis, and Jonny Fritz—the celebrated young singer-songwriters of “grassroots country supergroup” Traveller (NPR)—summon the wistful soul of the American heartland.
