8:00 :: Ron Hipp
Ron Hipp is an acoustic finger-style guitarist/singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. A native of Atlanta, Ron has been performing around town, both as a solo artist and in various band combinations, for many years. His rich baritone voice, consummate finger-picking and original songs make his shows a memorable experience. Ron performs in the duo ~Out of The Rain~ with Carol Statella, an accomplished singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist in her own right, so this will be a rare chance to get to see and hear Ron solo.
9:00 : : In The Wheelhouse
In the Wheelhouse began in 2010 when Tomas Valenti needed an impromptu stringband for a square dance and asked fiddler Tara Vogt and banjo player Walter Harris to help out. They discovered a shared love of music that went beyond traditional fiddle tunes and they've been playing together ever since. Today their repertoire includes an eclectic blend of traditional and popular tunes from a broad range of styles; old country gospel and blues to the Beatles with a dash of bluegrass. Guitarist-singer Sarah Wishon joined the group later, adding a velvety quality to their three-part harmonies. Sometimes appearing as a trio, other times as a quartet, In the Wheelhouse entertains audiences with their tight harmonies, unique arrangements, stale banjo jokes, and upbeat fiddle tunes, swapping out lead vocals as well as instruments along the way.

8:00 :: Harm's Way
Harm’s Way performs with rich harmony, conviction, and a sense of humor. While the group has been together over ten years, some of the members have been performing together all of their adult lives. Their music is influenced by several genres: roots, Americana, folk, blues, and more.
This acoustic driven group relies on tight harmonies, thoughtful songs and lyrics, and a belief that the music should be shared. These guys have fun performing and can be found at festivals, private events, restaurants, coffee shops, corporate events, and church functions.
As with most groups, members occasionally join or leave or re-join the group. But, the core members have been playing music together since before Woodstock. They have fun playing, check their egos at the door, and while they take the music very seriously, don’t take themselves seriously at all!
9:00 : : The Radio Rangers
The Radio Rangers are Dan Foster, Mark Ewald, Tom Molloy, and Bill Long. The Radio Rangers are an Atlanta-based Americana group. The music is a mix of country, rock, folk and blues telling stories from the American heartland. The music appeals to young, old and anyone in between.

Band principals Marie Dunkle and Margie Swint currently perform as a duo and with talented guest musicians at festivals, coffeehouses, wineries, weddings and private parties. Musical repertoire is customized for the occasion and can range from Celtic to 40's swing, folk, popular and classical.
