My Gay Banjo - http://www.mygaybanjo.com/
My Gay Banjo is Owen Taylor and Julia Steele Allen on guitar, banjo, uke and vocals. Singing homespun gay-themed duets and occasional queered-up mash-ups, My Gay Banjo plays songs for you and your kind. "My Gay Banjo... gives traditional country tracks a run for their money...and knows how to embrace pink eyeshadow and mustaches. Win." -After Ellen
Eli Conley - www.eliconley.com
Eli Conley is a Berkeley, California-based musician steeped in Americana music and the singer-songwriter tradition. He crafts modern day folk songs for misfits from the raw material of his life as a queer man with Virginia roots. "Oh what gorgeous, soulful music!" raved roots music innovator Laura Love, "Eli Conley's writing and singing are exquisite." Eli is on tour from the Bay Area to promote his debut studio album, At The Seams. He will be accompanied on fiddle & mandolin by Joel Price of Philly band ellipsis.
AJ Lewis - 8pm
AJ Lewis just likes to play oldtime numbers on the banjo, and occasionally some newer music too! He has a particular predilection for songs about calamities, nonhuman animals, and unusual forms of sodality. When not singing very old folk songs, he plays bass (and sometimes banjo) for Brooklyn-based queer country bands Karen & the Sorrows and Good Fences
