ABOUT THE MUSICIANS:
Traveling Broke and Out of Gas:
Originally formed in 2006 as a traveling busking husband and wife duo playing for strangers on street corners, coffee shops, and campfires across the country, Traveling Broke and Out of Gas has taken root in Lafayette, Indiana and evolved into a five-member, genre defying brand of folk rock; ever changing and never ceasing to surprise their fans with their unique style, blend of instrumentation, and unparalleled lyrical magic. Led by the sultry vocals of Rachael Yanni and cerebral songwriting of Cody Hall, this group of musical pioneers has created a sound that will make any music lover stop in their tracks. The band incorporates a variety of instrumentation including guitars, upright bass, fiddles, washboard, ukuleles, a makeshift travel ready drum kit, pots and pans, and hoops and hollers. With dozens of original songs, two full length albums, and a national tour under their belt, Traveling Broke and Out of Gas continues to intrigue audiences and will not be slowing down anytime soon.
About Chicago Farmer:
Chicago Farmer sings on the title track of Backenforth, IL, out January 22, 2013. It’s the centerpiece of his sixth collection of Guthrie-inspired populist songs, as well as autobiographical. The son of a small town farming community, Cody Diekhoff logged plenty of highway and stage time under the name Chicago Farmer before settling in the city in 2003. Profoundly inspired by fellow mid-westerner John Prine, he’s a working-class folk musician to his core. His small town roots, tilled with city streets mentality, are turning heads North and South of I-80.
Backenforth, IL is also about finding your place in life – that sweet spot where we all belong. “I love the energy, music, and creativity of Chicago, but at the same time, the roots and hard work of my small town,” he shares. Growing up in Delavan, IL with a population less than 2,000, Diekhoff’s grandparents were farmers, and their values have always provided the baseline of his songs. He writes music for the “kind of people that come to my shows. Whether in Chicago or Delavan, everyone has a story, and everyone puts in a long day and works hard the same way,” he says. “My generation may have been labeled as slackers, but I don’t know anyone who doesn’t work hard – many people I know put in 50-60 hours a week and 12 hour days. That’s what keeps me playing. I don’t like anyone to be left out; my music is for everyone in big and very small towns.”
About The Woodstove Flapjacks:
The Woodstove Flapjacks have been entertaining eager masses for over 6 years. Continuing the traditions of early American Stringband music, The Flapjacks mix booming vocals, harmonica and kazoo, banjo’s, guitars, mandolin, ukulele, and washtub bass into a raucous good time. This focus on traditional tunes allows the listener to step back to a time when lyrics were written from experience and music was hashed out on a front porch. Lead vocalist Matt Scherger once described the resurgence of stringband music as inevitable, due to the fact that the interest, as well as ability, seems to skip a generation.
