Event details

One of these days, Truckstop Honeymoon may well become known as a badass bluegrass band from LAWRENCE. But for now, they're still often known as transplants from N'Orleans, as so much of their latest music is infused with their experience being dislocated by Hurricane Katrina. The husband/wife duo's fifth LP "Great Big Family" boldly reflects on the loss of their former life in the Big Easy and the start of a new one in Kansas.

Oakhurst is a Denver-based act with deep Appalachian roots and original songs that fuse traditional bluegrass with a citybilly attitude. The band's sound is more rustic and rocking (and less jazzy and jammy) than the typical hybrid bluegrass found in the Rocky Mountain Region. The group performed at last summer's Wakarusa Festival and books upwards of 200 shows a year.
