The General Lew Wallace Study & Museum is pleased to announce the musical line-up for the 2021 TASTE! of Montgomery County.
Opening band Highland Reign consists of Leslie Miller, Patrick Norris, and Sarah Yingst. An international touring Scots American folk rock band from Indianapolis, Highland Reign takes the tunes of the old country and breathes a rocking new life into them. Performing traditional songs such as “My Heart’s in the Highlands,” originals like “Kirk in the Heather” and “The Streets of Edinburgh,” and many more, Highland Reign has become one of America’s favorite Scottish folk rock bands. With wailing bagpipes/guitar tunes, lilting fiddles, and upbeat vocals, highland reign will rock you back to the old country!
Highland Reign will play from 1 – 3 p.m.
Hailing from Greencastle, War Radio is a local favorite! Joel and LaToshia Everson will be joined by band members Lorin Lemme, Jay Kirkpatrick, and Kevin Killeen.
War Radio is a band who truly believes music is transformative, which is evident in their performance and passion for creating a memorable music experience. Their sound is a blend of indie rock, soul, and melody. The group’s dynamics create an energy that is palpable. A night spent with War Radio is one that engages and invokes vibe and heart.
Each member of the outfit carries a unique musical inspiration which is evident in both their original and cover songs. This group is full of raw talent, ambition, and emotion. The heartbeat of their signature sound derives from being raised in small towns, and relying on music as the outlet to a bigger world. Dreaming up new worlds, imagining the unknown, and envisioning the impossible are clearly seen in the lyrics of their original songs. As a listener, you truly become swept up in what is a wonderful time.
War Radio will play from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Modern Country music has captured the hearts of Americans! Strawbury Jam will capture yours with their renditions of songs by Little Big Town, Kenny Chesney, Marin Morris, Carrie Underwood and Luke Combs – just to name a few! The chemistry of Strawbury Jam is palpable with the blazing artistry of Josiah Bryan on guitar, Mike Christen on drums, Vince Petroy on bass guitar and power packed vocals by Jenn Moe. In addition to this fantastic line-up, Tim Wright, of The Wright Brothers, will add his incredible talents by playing steel guitar, dobro, banjo and harmonica at the 2021 TASTE of Montgomery Festival. Be ready to have a good ‘ol country time with Strawberry Jam!
Strawbury Jam will play from 8 – 10 p.m.
