Amythyst Kiah
Sunday, May 8 | 7pm
Love’s Travel Stops Stage and Great Lawn

Amythyst Kiah’s Rounder Records debut, Wary + Strange, marks the combination of two vastly different worlds: the iconoclastic alt-rock that first sparked her musical passion and the roots/old-time music scene where she’s found breakout success in recent years, including recognition from Rolling Stone as “one of Americana’s great up-and-coming secrets.”

With an unforgettable voice that is both unfettered and exquisitely controlled, the Tennessee-bred singer/songwriter expands on the uncompromising artistry she most recently revealed as part of Our Native Daughters—an all-women-of-color supergroup along with Rhiannon Giddens, Leyla McCalla and Allison Russell. Kiah-penned the standout song, “Black Myself” which earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best American Roots Song and won Song of the Year at the 2019 Folk Alliance International Awards.

LeAnn Rimes
Saturday, May 21 | 7pm
Love’s Travel Stops Stage and Great Lawn 

LeAnn Rimes is an international multi-platinum selling acclaimed singer and ASCAP award-winning songwriter who has sold more than 48 million units globally, won 2 Grammy® Awards; 12 Billboard Music Awards; 2 World Music Awards; 3 Academy of Country Music Awards; 2 Country Music Association Awards and one Dove Award. At 14, Rimes won “Best New Artist” making her the youngest solo artist to take home a Grammy® Award, and at 15, she became the first country artist to win “Artist of the Year” at the Billboard Music Awards.

Out of the 42 singles she has released throughout her expansive career, LeAnn’s ballad “How Do I Live” holds the record as Billboard’s Hot 100 all-time #1 hit by a female artist and continues to rank #4 on Billboard’s “Greatest of All Time: Hot 100 Songs.” 15 of her multi-genre singles are top-10 hits, including “Can’t Fight the Moonlight,” which went #1 in 11 countries.

In 2020, Rimes shined the brightest and won season four of FOX’s The Masked Singer, with Entertainment Weekly stating that she delivered .”.. the most beautiful performance in the history of The Masked Singer.” Most recently, she served as the inspiration judge on the Discovery+ competition series, Meet Your Makers Showdown, which started streaming November 2021.

The eight-person group combines the rhythms of Afro-Caribbean salsa music with jazz harmonies and improvisations to produce the Latin Jazz hybrid style. The ensemble gets the name “Mezclave” from “mezcla,” which is Spanish for “mixture,” and “clave,” the Afro-Caribbean term for the rhythm of salsa music.

Mezclave has been performing for over 20 years under the direction of bassist and composer Edwin Canito Garcia.

Their performances have included NYC, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Nashville, Tulsa and Northwest Arkansas.
