The 2nd Annual Ozarks Bacon Fest is proud to announce these two great acts for your enjoyment at the event!
Mark Bilyeu and Cindy Woolf Band
Featuring: Mark Bilyeu, Cindy Woolf, Jason Chapman, Jeremy Chapman, Jay Williamson.
Cindy Woolf began recording her third CD, “May,” on May 1, 2012. Appropriately, this collection of twelve new original songs will see its proper release in May of 2013. Whereas her debut, 2006’s “Simple and Few,” was a wholly acoustic album, and the follow-up, 2009’s “Before Daylight” featured a full band, “May” finds the sweet spot in between — the sound of a fully matured artist making music according to her own wishes. Produced by Mark Bilyeu (of Big Smith), “May” is built around a core ensemble of the guitar playing of Bilyeu; David Bright of Fayetteville, Arkansas, on drums (Charliehorse); Joe Terry on keyboard (The Skeletons, Dave Alvin); Ryan Kennedy of St. Louis on upright bass; with shining guest spots from former band mates Travis Linville of Oklahoma (Hayes Carll); Molly Healey, Bill Thomas and Jay Williamson (also from Big Smith); and Reed Herron of Speakeasy.
Hailing from Batesville, Arkansas, Cindy Woolf has been a resident of the Missouri Ozarks since 1998, where she has become well-known for a singular singing voice and her enchanting performances of her original songs. Her music has taken her on tour across the United States. Dirty Linen said of Woolf upon the release of her first album, “instantly timeless…spell-binding…beautiful, heartfelt, entrancing.”
Mark Bilyeu and Cindy Woolf have been playing together for the better part of ten years, performing on the Americana/Folk and singer-songwriter circuit.
Uncle Rico’s Time Machine
Featuring: Uncle Rico, Tiny Mooreor Les, Boots & Graham Kracker
These good ole’ boys have been playing underground gigs and backroom juke joints in and around the region and feature the best Honkytonk and Western Swing music you will ever hear in the Ozarks! We promise they will make you want to scoot your boots, drink a cold beer and munch on some more BACON!
