Cisco and The Racecars — noon to 1:30 p.m.
Cisco and The Racecars specialize in bluegrass, folk, and old time Americana music. Their energetic style, diverse arrangements, and instrumentation create a unique blend of old and new. Under the management and vision of Francisco Briseno, Cisco and The Racecars has taken their place as one of the premier bluegrass bands in the Southwest.
Kim Weston — 2:30 to 4 p.m.
Kim Weston is a vocalist, violinist, band leader, songwriter, poet, and recording artist. She released nine singles in 2021 with an eclectic group of musicians and producers, including Aaron Sterling, Adam Armijo, Brian Chartrand, Clarke Rigsby, Shea Marshall, and more. Her appreciation for jazz is obvious in the production, and poetry is the medium in which her lyrics come to life. Weston’s unabashed perspectives and elegance in lyrical writing are timeless and refreshing, speaking to the human condition from someone who has reflected on the lovely and difficult moments of life. Her jazz band consists of incredible musicians, the top talent in Phoenix, who perform Weston’s originals and put a seductive spin on jazz standards, crowd favorites, and favorite artists, such as Melody Gardot, Norah Jones, Stacey Kent, Esperanza Spalding, Joni Mitchell, and Édith Piaf.
