Gregory Alan Isakov
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and now calling Colorado home, horticulturist-turned-musician Gregory Alan Isakov has cast an impressive presence on the indie-rock
and folk worlds with his five full-length studio albums: That Sea, The Gambler; This
Empty Northern Hemisphere; The Weatherman; Gregory Alan Isakov with the Colorado
Symphony; and Evening Machines (recently nominated for a Grammy award for Best
Folk Album). Isakov has toured internationally with his band, and has performed with
several national symphony orchestras across the United States. In addition
to running his independent record label, Suitcase Town Music, he also manages a small
farm in Boulder County, which provides produce to over a dozen local restaurants. Photo by Rebecca Caridad.

With special guest Jessica Lea Mayfield
Born in Kent, Ohio, Jessica Lea Mayfield began touring with her family bluegrass band One Way Rider at the age of 8. She recorded her first solo EP, White Lies, in her bedroom at 15, and was soon discovered by fellow Ohioan Dan Auerbach of Black Keys, who produced 2008’s With Blasphemy, So Heartfelt and 2011’s Tell Me.
Online magazine Blurt named With Blasphemy the Best Album of 2008 and gave Mayfield the title of Best New Artist of 2008. The album’s opening track "Kiss Me Again" was featured on The CW’s hit series Gossip Girl, and "Bible Days" was featured on CBS’s CSI: NY.
She has opened for many artists, including The Black Keys, The Avett Brothers, Cake, Band of Horses, Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne, and Jay Farrar (Son Volt, Uncle Tupelo).
