River & Rail:
Grace and Alex Fincher wed in 2021, moving from Missouri to Nashville, TN and establishing Indie Folk/Americana duo, “River and Rail.” They have since performed over 100 shows- opening for acts such as Willi Carlisle, Esme Patterson, and The Arcadian Wild.
Possessing a voice that is equal parts haunting and agile, Grace’s songwriting captivates the listener. Alex’s textural, melodic acoustic guitar and mandolin weaves between, adding plaintive supporting vocals. The two have crafted a rich yet close acoustic sound that leans into dynamics, nuanced embellishment, and out-of-the box musical changes. 
In November 2023, the duo released their debut EP “Trees and other Relatives” a collection of stories mined from Grace’s lineage.
Claire Hoke:
Claire Hoke is a North Carolina born, soulful song storyteller who weaves melodies that resonate with raw emotion and honesty. With an acoustic guitar in hand and a heart full of vulnerability, Claire’s music serves as a cathartic journey through the complexities of human experience.

Drawing inspiration from the rich tapestry of folk and pop, Claire’s sound is a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation. Her songs are windows into her inner world, exploring themes of struggle, growth, and resilience.

As a songwriter, Claire confronts her own problems and feelings of discomfort, transforming them into melodic prose that resonate with authenticity. Through her music, she seeks not only to process her own emotions but also to create a space where others can find solace and connection.

Luke Vanhine and Samuel Gottlieb will also be performing as a duo.
