1:00 pm - Darrin Kobetich

Fort Worth, Texas-based solo acoustic guitar master Darrin Kobetich classifies his sound as “ambient delta raga thrash grass,” but that’s just scratching the surface.

3:00 pm - Almost Jaded

Amy Kathleen has been writing music from her heart since she was eight years old, learning to play guitar so she could provide her own accompaniment. August of 2018, attending an open mic at Truth Vinyl, Jared Sullivan heard her perform for the first time and was sure that he had heard something special. Just acquiring a cello after a decade of not having played the instrument, he knew it would be the perfect compliment to Amy’s poignant songwriting. The two got together, performing for the first time a month later at the same venue that they first met. After an overwhelming reception, there was no looking back as the two have continued to create powerful, emotive music that connects with any and every audience.
