Rooster Walk 13 Artists at Large Announced

Rooster Walk 13 Artists at Large Announced

Each year, Rooster Walk brings in an assortment of immensely talented individuals to serve as “Artists at Large” during the festival. These musical maestros bounce around all four days, sitting in as guest performers with other bands in the RW lineup.

But that’s not all! Our Artists at Large also join forces onstage to form the “Rooster Walk House Band” for three special sets over the weekend. Each set has a musical theme, plus special one-day musical guests who are a perfect fit for that particular theme. The core of the RW House Band is always the seven spectacular musicians who will be hustling all weekend at Pop’s Farm. Exciting improv magic ahead! Without further ado....

Here are your RW13 Artists at Large:

★ Robby Carden (harmonica, The Jared Stout Band)
★ Jake Dempsey (bass, The Dead Reckoning)
★ Ron Holloway (saxophone, Ron Holloway Band)
★ Erin Lunsford (vocals, Erin and the Wildfire)
★ Wallace Mullinax (guitar, The Reckoning)
★ Josh Shilling (keys, Mountain Heart)
★ Jeff Sipe (drums, Col.Bruce Hampton and The Aquarium Rescue Unit++)
