TURCHI is the essence of American roots music, blending the slide-guitar-boogie and kudzu-fuzz of the North Mississippi Hill Country with the songwriting styles of traditional storytelling and folk narrative. Growing out of a collage of influences ranging from Mississippi Fred McDowell, R.L. Burnside, Kenny Brown, and Luther Dickinson to Randy Newman, Josh Ritter, and Lucinda Williams, TURCHI recreates the scenes, sounds, and stories embedded in the ever-changing American landscape.

SUNDAY – PRETTY GRITTY
Pretty Gritty is the serendipitous joining of the talents of Blaine Heinonen and Sarah Wolff, both born and raised in Montgomery County, MD. Although they originate from different rock bands, fate brought them together at local “open-mic” nights, where it became evident that they shared an interest in writing and performing songs that mix country, rock, blues, and soul. It’s said that she brings the “pretty” while he brings the “gritty,” combining for an engaging alt-country duo with seducing harmonies and addicting acoustics.
