Saturday, July 11: Shelby Ash presents "Twang Bang" Americana & Bluegrass


Laura & the Killed Men 11:30pm-12:30pm

Classical singer-turned-folk-artist Laura Kepner-Adney shades her Americana with country and echoes of Appalachia. Frequently compared to Iris Dement, Chrissie Hynde and Gillian Welch, she has developed an expansive songwriting style that highlights her connection to Arizona-s unforgiving environment. Rooted in traditional folk technique, Laura-s guitar playing exposes her rock and blues influences and showcases her unconventional, rich vocals. She spent seven years performing with Silver Thread Trio, Tucson-s critically acclaimed Americana ensemble; currently fronts southern Arizona-s power pop quartet The Cordials; and has performed and recorded with national acts including Amos Lee, Calexico, Howe Gelb, Jello Biafra, Robin Hitchcock, and Run Boy Run. Her current backing band, the Killed Men, is Tucson-s chamber punk ensemble Sun Bones in disguise.

A relatively young band, Laura and the Killed Men have opened for Mavis Staples in Tucson, AZ and have toured much of the Southwest, drawing crowds in small towns like El Paso, TX and Prescott, AZ.  They've been featured on the front page of the No Depression website, and are touring in support of their new album, 'One Bell.'
