About Jonathan Byrd

Jonathan Byrd and The Pickup Cowboys are musical gunslingers, vaudevillian hucksters, and old-fashioned tent revivalists. Between heartbreaking ballads and heart-lifting sing-alongs, the Cowboys entertain and get audiences involved in the show.

Byrd is a preacher's son, a Gulf War veteran, and an award-winning songwriter from Chapel Hill, NC, known for literary, outsider songs that have become campfire favorites. The Chicago Tribune called Byrd "one of the top 50 songwriters of the past 50 years."

Joined on drums by Austin McCall (Kaira Ba, Violet Bell), and musical renaissance man Johnny Waken on guitar, saw, and mandolin, Byrd shares the often-missed, always poignant tales of the small people that make the world such a big place.

About The Cheddar Boys

The cheddar boys formed over the years busking around Philadelphia and playing open mics in and around the city. As a band, they’ve been playing in a few different incarnations since 2011.

Traditional old time music is at their core, they also throw in other popular tunes from Johnny cash to John Hartford to Caitlin Rose. With a handful of originals and more to come, they have a fun, jaunty, infectious stage presence that’ll get folks singing along and dancing.

The cheddar boys have created independently four cds and sold them at gigs and while busking, their latest album is the most polished to date. They also have music available on band camp.
From the street corner, to festivals, to private gigs in the penthouse, the cheddar boys have played many different stages and look forward to playing many more!
