Featuring in no particular order:
Aaron Nathans - http://www.aaronnathans.com/
This 2011 Kerrville New Folk finalist will yodel about grapefruit, and chant about a heavy metal rocker at his Orthodox Jewish wedding. He rocks out about that girl who shouldn't be wearing Goth clothes anymore, and the curious alchemy that makes an Italian bakery turn out the very best bread on the planet.
Matthew Haley - http://www.facebook.com/MatthewHalleyMusic
Gable was made aware of Matthew's music through the FAWM showcase this year. He is a wildlife biologist, songwriter, music teacher (guitar, piano, banjo and voice), and a freelance sound engineer for large jazz and world music ensembles.

Kurt Houff is best known locally as the lead guitarist for Montana Wildaxe. However, Jeremy has been a fan of Kurt's since he began coming into the acoustic guitar room at Accent Music years ago to play some of the most amazing slide/finger picking compositions. Take a look at the video link above of Kurt playing at Burlap and Bean a few years ago.
