Kawehi - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Kawehi
Kawehi is a new breed of musician, a one-woman-band from Lawrence, Kansas who uses technology to carry the weight of a full band on her own. She was seen and heard in the Super Bowl 50 commercial for Intel, has landed in publications such as People Magazine, Spin, Esquire, and on the front page of Reddit. Elle magazine has dubbed Kawehi “The Genius One-Woman Band” and HuffPo has praised Kawehi as “Killing the DIY scene.” With over 11 million views on her YouTube channel, Kawehi has been performing to sold out shows across the nation and has already been on three headlining tours. With eight Kickstarter projects under her belt, Kawehi shows no signs of slowing down. Her newest project, EVE – a Sci-Fi Short Film/Visual Album – was funded via Kickstarter in less than a day and is set to release in the Spring of 2017.
Bea - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Bea sings and strums her folky pop songs with the same sincerity she uses to write them. Spending her early adult years in Dallas, Texas, Bea acquainted herself with the local music scene and played every stage she could from small pubs to large capacity venues and opened for acts such as Norah Jones, John Mayer and James Taylor. Her ambitions eventually drove her to NYC where she played on subway platforms to make rent. Eventually she began working as a fashion designer and found herself writing and performing far less often. But a five year break from music, a beautiful baby boy and a move to upstate later, Bea found herself being once again drawn to her first loves- her guitar and the stage.

Bea's third and forthcoming album is her first full length studio recorded effort. Outfitted with the formidable talents of Grammy Award winning drummer and noted producer, Brady Blade (Dave Matthews, Emmylou Harris, Jewel) and accomplished award winning engineer, Chris Bell (U2, The Eagles, Erykah Badu), the album is expected for release later this year.
