Three bands who have energetic shows and quickly growing regional following are set to highlight this year’s Haysville Fall Festival.
Saturday night, Oct. 19, will have a country flair as Jason Boyd is scheduled to play an acoustic show at 6:30 p.m. Following at 8:30 p.m. will be Turnback Creek.
Linnaberry Wine, a rock band from Wichita, will perform at 9 p.m. Friday.
Boyd, a native from Wellington, has recently signed a Nashville contract and often performs with his band. He of mix of styles, from red dirt country to Texas Blues with some Southern rock thrown in.
As a youth, he began playing in his father’s classic country band. He’s been influenced by George Strait, Merle Haggard, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and newer acts like Cross Canadian Ragweek and Stoney Larue.
His debut CD, “The Jason Boyd Band,” has received regional airplay and helped the group develop a following that extends well beyond south central Kansas.
Turnback Creek has lots of south central Kansas ties and has played at numerous local venues include the Kansas Star Casino and The Cotillion. They are now mixing in original tunes with covers of songs by Lady Antebellum, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean and more. The band was formed in November 2009, and now features Justina Claire (Rausch) of Garden Plain on vocals. She’s performed with several county music legends and spent three years honing her craft in Nashville.
Linnaberry Wine is based in Wichita and plays rock, southern rock, country rock, blues and more. They’ve played twice at the Sturgis motorcycle rally in South Dakota and have opened for 1980s rockers Warrant. Other upcoming performance include The Dusty Boot Saloon in Augusta, Loft 150 in Wichita, and at Samuel Brewskies in Park City.
Admission to all performances is free. Attendees are asked to purchase a $2 Fall Festival button, which helps fund the shows and many other parts of the festival.
