<<Back to full 2017 Side Stage Lineup


Saturday, July 29th • 2:30pm • Side Stage


Compared to Brandi Carlile, Lucinda Williams, Rhett Miller, Kathleen Edwards and Patty Griffin, Hays has a sound uniquely her own. Folk and country tinges, thoughtfully penned stories and a full band sound that is both driving alt country and moody folk rock. Her live shows are filled with an undeniable presence, she belongs in the space she’s made for her craft. Hays has released two full length albums and two EP’s since 2009. Each effort lends itself to the variable styles and incarnations of full band and solo work. Hays began her work on her first full length since 2012 in May of 2017. If it’s anything like what we’ve heard, we can expect a comprehensive piece of work, well penned and fully realized.
