The Blue Dogs have been defining Americana since 1987, long before the genre had a name. Known for spontaneity and audience engagement, their sound combines vocals from lead guitarist Bobby Houck and upright bassist Hank Futch, along with the pedal and steel drums, a harmonica, fiddle, and mandolin make for unforgettable live shows.

Whit’s End began in 2016 by Chris “Whit” Whitaker as a local band, just for fun, but soon became a full time job. He describes his music as “real and gritty” and specializes in Waylon Jennings and Outlaw country music. Other band members include: Brandon Ashley, lead guitarist, Franko Ocasio on bass, Steven Branham with drums, and Dillon, guitarist.

New York-born and South Carolina-raised, Campbell’s music is a hybrid of city-slicker sass and small-town sensibilities, mixing rock-style vocals with a country-style twang. Since the release of her first album in 2015, Campbell has opened for country stars including Luke Combs, Dan + Shay, and Carly Pearce, as well as The Avett Brothers and performed alongside headliner Sheryl Crow at Charleston’s 9th Annual First Flush Festival.
