We are thrilled to announce that our 5th Annual Benefit for The Richard de Lone Special Housing Project will feature one of our favorite pickers, Titan of the Telecaster Bill Kirchen and his band, The Hammer of the Honky Tonk Gods, as host and house band. The self-proclaimed "King of Dieselbilly" will be playing his own high flyin' hits as well as adding his steaming hot licks to an amazing array of singer/songwriters from around the country. From Nashville, Grammy winning country/bluegrass crooner Jim Lauderdale and guitar slinger/producer-to-the-stars Buddy Miller. From Austin Texas, Bill Kirchen and the sagebrush soul of Flatlander and Wrongler Jimmie Dale Gilmore. From California, songwriter to the songwriters Kevin Blackie Farrell, and Academy, Grammy and Golden Globe award winner Ryan Bingham. And all the way from New York City, hardcore troubadour Steve Earle! As if that weren't enough, the legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band of New Orleans swings in to lend their funk and spice to the whole evening. This will truly be a ruckus to remember!

Friday, September 30 at Slim's:
(featuring the all-original lineup!)
Doors 8, Show 9
During their heyday in the first half of the 1990s, the Jayhawks perfected a captivating sound that seamlessly blended the elegant folk-rock of the Byrds, the adventurousness of the Buffalo Springfield, the hippiebilly soulfulness of the Flying Burrito Brothers and the soaring harmonies of the Beach Boys. So it's richly ironic that their reappearance coincides with a dramatic resurgence of the musical approach they played such a central role in perpetuating but this time around, the Jayhawks themselves are revered as icons by the young bands carrying on those same traditions.

After the sun goes down on Saturday night, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass will present a special screening of How To Grow A Band, Mark Meatto's gripping new documentary starring Chris Thile and his bandmates in Punch Brothers. Last year, Punch Brothers rocked the Rooster Stage backing up T-Bone Burnett. This year, you can see Punch Brothers back on stage and on the big screen! The film tells the story of the jaw-dropping quintet's early days, giving viewers an intimate look at the moment when young artists bear down and chase their dreams.
