Artists, Audience & Community Live

There’s something inexplicably authentic about Oklahoma’s Travis Linville, and it’s carried him from dive bars and classrooms to “The Tonight Show” and esteemed theaters and festivals across the globe.
Linville is legendary regionally for his work in the Burtschi Brothers and for behind-the-scenes influence. Having been called a “Godfather of modern Oklahoma folk”, he’s been a mentor and contemporary for a multitude of other Oklahoma acts including John Fulbright, Parker Millsap, the Turnpike Troubadours and John Moreland.
Lifelong musical and romantic partners, Alyssa and Doug Graham were childhood friends turned husband and wife with a passion for music. The Grahams are an Americana folk-rock music duo with a lot of southern flavor. Over the last few years they have toured across the US and joined some great acts such as Ray Wylie Hubbard, John Fulbright, The Wood Brothers, Parker Millsap, Leon Russell and others.
