Tracey K Houston
One of the rising stars in Country and Rockabilly music with a great tribute to Loretta Lynn.
The rolling hills and verdant valleys of Virginia’s Piedmont region have provided a backdrop for some of our history’s most turbulent and formative events and produced an uncommonly rich variety of compelling musical styles and voices, from blues to country to bluegrass and beyond. It’s a heritage that Virginia-based singer/songwriter Randy Thompson intuitively understands and brings vividly to life. His work lovingly embraces the past even as it pulls it – kicking, picking, singing, rocking – all the way into the 21st Century.
Jay Chevalier, one of the last surviving greats of Louisiana rockabilly, kicked off his musical career at the age of seventeen.
Popular country music band using their talents this year to provide backing to Jay Chevalier.
