Acoustic Palette Tent | Music and Art – unplugged expression!


Frank Hamilton School Band | 11 am-Noon

Atlanta-based Frank Hamilton School offers classes in guitar, fiddle, banjo, vocals, mandolin, and ukulele. Modeled after the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, the school emphasizes group learning in a fun, welcoming environment. Students just beginning or beyond find new friends and develop their musical skills in nurturing classes and in the group jam they call the “Second Half.”

Amy Andrews | Noon-1 pm

Crazy talented, charming, and award-winning vocalist most often compared to Sinatra, Ella, and Norah Jones, although she was recently proclaimed a “female Elvis” by an enthusiastic fan.

Brian Revels | 2:30-3:30 pm

Brian Revels is most recognized as the brazen voice behind Atlanta’s City Mouse, a bourbon-barreled version of an Avett Brother’s rip-off (in the best possible way). You might tend to picture him holding a banjo. But, long before the birth of his rowdy string trio, he was scribbling lyrics on scrap paper – restaurant order pads, receipts, check stubs – and picking a well-loved six-string confidant.

Allen Cook | 5-6 pm

Atlanta-based vocalist, multi instrumentalist, songwriter, and photographer Allen Cook enjoys personalizing cover tunes. He has performed with Three Degrees, Ben E. King, Oleta Adams, and Felix Cavaliere (of the Young Rascals).


City Mouse | 12:30-1:30 pm

Atlanta’s City Mouse, started in 2012, combines the best of Americana and early rock ’n roll. A canvas of acoustic instrumentation with Michael Hudgins on guitar, Brian Revels on banjo and Jenna Mobley on the upright bass is topped with soaring lyricism with three-part vocal harmony.

Kelly Hill Hall | 2-3 pm

An Atlanta native, Kelly Hill Hall has been playing music for more than 20 years in and around the Atlanta area as well as some neighboring states. His style is Americana mixed with a bit of reggae flare, covers and original music. Accompanying Kelly will be the phenomenal percussionist, Romley Leon Hardy; and on the bass, Scott “the Birdman” Tart. This trio loves to jam and that is exactly what they will do.

Chris Weinholtz | 3-4 pm

Country soul singer-songwriter, now living in Nashville, Chris’s songs feature honest lyrics and heartfelt melodies stemmed from hard-learned lessons.

Baatin | 5-6 pm

Baatin’s unplugged performance explores his raw guitar technique and Southern Baptist preacher style vocals. Rooted in the blues and classic R&B, it’s a must-see.
