Saturday, July 4

1PM-4PM Ryne Doughty

Ryne Doughty is a Folk/Americana singer-songwriter out of Des Moines, IA, whose music is deeply rooted in real life stories of love, loss, work, and play. His stripped down, earthy sound is directly influenced by the small, rural town where he was born and raised. Doughty’s main passion in life is to share his music with the very people who help influence it; the real, hard working, everyday people that make this beautiful world go around.



5PM-7PM Tanya English Trio

Tanya’s singing career started out at the George’s Buffet Monday Night All Stars gigs. After several years of just showing up to sing a few tunes, she decided to create her own band. With husband, Unka Led English, an active member of the live music scene in the area for nearly 30 years – and IC phenom Sam Price on guitar – the Tanya English Trio brings a family-friendly mix of classic blues and cover tunes from the woman’s point of view. It’s the blues for fun.



8PM-10PM The Electric Koolaid Trio

The Electric Koolaid Trio was formed in 2010 as an offshoot of BF Burt and the Instigators. Featuring three of the original members of the iconic eastern Iowa Blues band, they have expanded their repertoire to include more rock and Jam Band influences while still staying rooted in classic electric blues and soul.
