Luna and the Mountain Jets
7:30PM MAIN STAGE
“A Pepsi Girl in a Coca Cola town” is the best way to describe Luna of Luna and the Mountain Jets. She wasn’t like her 8 siblings, much to her mother’s chagrin. Raised in the small town of Martha Kentucky, her dad made a meager living in the oil industry and her mother was a homemaker. There wasn’t money to go places and do things, however Luna was transported by the music on AM radio and television shows like Friday Night Special and Band Stand.
6:00 PM MAIN STAGE
Adam Chaffins with his roots firmly embedded in Eastern Kentucky soil, is a singer/songwriter and talented instrumentalist who never fears breaking genre barriers.
Chaffins finds his inspiration in diverse musical styles and personal experiences. Creating a new lane of country and Americana music laced with tinges of R&B and indie rock, his multi-genre sound is distinctive while being comfortably familiar.
His debut solo album, Some Things Won’t Last, released February 2020, was born from the constant evolution of Chaffins’ music, honoring past experiences while always moving forward. Wide Open Country praised the nine-song album as “everything from fuzz-toned, drum-driven rockers to ballads laced with symphonic swells, not to mention a gorgeous cover of Keith Whitley's ‘I'm Over You’.”
4:30 PM MAIN STAGE
