The Bands

7:00 DJ Sindoolah
8:00 Jordan Igoe

Born and raised in Charleston, SC, Jordan Igoe is a singer-songwriter, whose songs are as Southern and soulful as she is. The multi-instrumentalist has been playing professionally for over ten years as a solo performer, and with a rotating lineup of stellar backup musicians around Charleston and regionally around the Southeast. Having grown up in a musical family, Igoe taught herself how to play the piano at age 10 and picked up the guitar a few years later, and writes catchy, heartfelt songs with both instruments. It is her raw, soulful voice, however, that immediately grabs the listener and holds on.

9:00 Bombadil

Bombadil is a NC based band whose music is a quirky, sophisticated twist on vintage pop, indie rock and alt/country, and are managed by the same team who manage the Avett Brothers. "...an indie record done right," "...a combination of open-minded chamber folk and the bright and sunny pop music of the 1960s," "...sounds like the folk/rock 'Sgt. Pepper's,'" and "...everything an indie record should be," are just some of the comments from writers about the band's most recent album, Metrics of Affection.

10:00 Great Peacock

"Nashville's Blount Floyd and Andrew Nelson boast some serious Southern folk-rock chops, lovely harmonies and a list of classic country influences that makes it easy to understand why they've declared themselves to be "old art for the new generation."

Tours

  • 7:00 Docent-led tour through The Collection
  • 7:45 & 8:45Unique Perspective Tour through Japan and the Jazz Age by Tug Baker

    Tug Baker eats everything - if the title of his semi-regular Free Times food column is to be believed. (It's really more like he'll try anything once.) He also enjoys an adult beverage or two (or five) according to his weekly On Tap column for the Free Times. He's also been a part-time film projectionist for most of his life (many of those years at the Nickelodeon) and used to work in a comic book store (so he's got some geek crered too). However, he has never been good at baseball despite his name. (Sorry, Dad!)
