​Punches Family-Sat

The Punches are musical family group who make their home in Fredericktown Missouri, nestled in the heart of the Ozark Mountains. Mom and dad, as well as their twin girls (Brooke and Emily), all play instruments and sing.  They have been performing nationwide at churches, festivals, fairs and special events since 2009.  Additionally, they’ve been featured weekly on Great American Gospel TV and Great American Bluegrass TV on over 200 stations across America.

A No Depression blogger referred to members of the band as "..the Gibson Brothers who don’t share the Gibson name." But there’s no doubt they’re a band of musical brothers as Steve Leftridge of PopMatters described them this way:  "Eric and Leigh Gibson might have, pound-for-pound, the most impeccably fine-sounding traditional bluegrass band on the contemporary scene. ...the reason these guys can’t lose is that, quite simply, they sound so great. Eric and Leigh sing bluegrass’ tightest harmony blend, and, instrumentally the group plays with unmatched alacrity and taste. "

Lost Time/Off the Wall

Your host band, playing THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY, fronted by John Burton, with his syncopated banjo playing, with different configurations of members, the band has always played a great blend of traditional and modern bluegrass.

NICK PICCININNI ​​got his start performing bluegrass music on the five-string banjo, playing with multiple bands in New York State. Through the years he has made his mark as a highly proficient multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and entertainer. His debut album “The Door’s Open” is a perfect demonstration of Nick’s talent not only as an instrumentalist (featured on acoustic and electric guitar, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, dobro, bass, and mandola), but as a lead vocalist as well.

Atkinson Family

Your host band, playing THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY, the Atkinsons have a unique refreshing sound with tight family harmonies.  They will be your hosts for the weekend, playing music and entertaining the festival goers. Be sure to stop and say hello!


Zink and Company is firmly rooted in the traditions of the early decades of Bluegrass and Country music. The band can be counted on for their powerful musicianship combined with Zink’s smooth lead baritone vocal, which sounds just as much at home with a driving bluegrass tune as it does a tear-filled country weeper.
