Max Poolman (NL) @ 15u30
Max Poolman is an Amsterdam based artist. In his music, he combines folk, country and rock influences. He is inspired by artists such as Tyler Childers, Ryan Bingham and Justin Townes Earle. In his live performances, the audience is drawn into the show by his personal songs and raw, edgy voice. In these shows, he alternates between intimate acoustic songs with just a guitar and a blues harp and, with his band The Union, rugged country-rock tunes by which the audience goes crazy.

Tim Holehouse (UK) @ 15u30
Global touring musician, Tim Holehouse brings experimental acoustic sounds. For the past 16 years, Tim has been one of the most hard working in the industry, travelling the globe, touring throughout the UK, US, Canada Europe, and beyond. His touring adventures have brought influences to his sound today. Breaking the 250-300 gig mark most years, Tim leads somewhat of a nomadic existence, but for all intents and purposes, treats London as his home when not out playing his trade to international and domestic audiences. Tim is equally prolific with his recording as he is with his travels, when not gigging his way round the world, he has found the time to release 20 albums and countless split releases, often with artists he tours with.

The Cowpokes (NL) @ 15u30
Op hun eigen oorspronkelijke wijze vertolken ze de prachtige traditionals, veelal met Ierse invloeden, met meerstemmige zang, gitaar, banjo en mandoline. Zanger en mandoline-speler Charly Jansen heeft vele jaren in de VS gewoond waar hij zich de 'native sound' eigen heeft gemaakt. Hij toerde door Europa in bands als The Rough Riders, Parking Lot Pickers en Chicken Pie. Edwin Herkert is een zeer bekende banjo-speler, onder andere in de toonaangevende Bluegrassband Groundspeed. Ook Peter Noppen, zanger/gitarist, heeft jaren geleden zijn hart verloren aan de traditionele Amerikaanse muziek, hij is tevens actief in de Countryrockband Yeeehaa! The Cowpokes gooiden hoge ogen bij Holland’s Got Talent in 2019 en ze speelden door de jaren heen op vele bekende festivals, zoals Muddy Roots Europe (BE), De Zwarte Cross, EWOB Bluegrass en Mañana Mañana.

The Pink Stones (USA) @ 15u30
Made up almost entirely of Athens musicians who play in other bands around town (including former members of the Drive-By Truckers and the Glands), The Pink Stones match their frontman’s vast musical vocabulary while adding their own twists to spacey honkytonk, pedal-to-the-metal trucker anthems, and ecstatic gospel. Together, they have the range to be whatever they need to be at any given moment, embracing the spirit of musical freedom that has animated the local music scene for more than forty years. Yet, The Pink Stones sound like no other Athens band. “We have the space to be free here in Athens and do whatever we want,” says Pinkston. “We get to do our own thing, and there are a million other really good bands doing their own things here as well. Everyone is friends with everyone else, and everyone’s doing something constantly, so you’re always hearing something new. And you always have to stay on your toes.”

Ann Vriend (CAN) @ 15u30
Canadian AV (Ann Vriend) is a two-time Maple Blues Award songwriting recipient, an Edmonton Music Award and Alberta Centennial Award recipient, and has sold nearly 30,000 albums off-the-stage in her under-the-radar yet critically acclaimed international career. Her sound is simultaneously reminiscent of the vintage, rootsy, soul style of Stax Records and Muscle Shoals recordings, while also contemporary and commercially viable, not to mention lyrically politically poignant.

The Wieners and guests play Hank Williams (NL) @ 15u30
Eerste maal dat deze show buiten Nederland gepresenteerd wordt, dan nog heel speciaal naar hier in Cowboy Up Waardamme.
In Nederland worden zij ontvangen en geprezen voor hun uiterst professionalisme en de al om gekende sound van wijlen Hank Williams senior (1923-1953).
Alle bandleden spelen andere instrumenten dan gebruikelijk. Gitarist Rob Roemers op steelguitar, bassist Jaap Wijn op lead guitar en drummer Jan Timmermans op rhythm guitar. Daarbij op contrabas Erwin Meijdam (v/h oa The Barnstompers en The Ranch Girls). 'En wie weet schuift er nog een bekende aan'.

Diyet & The Love Soldiers (CAN) @ 15u30
(Alt Country/Roots/Folk/ Harmony)
Diyet was born in a tent and spent her childhood on the ancestral lands of the Kluane First Nation people in Canada’s Yukon Territory. Coming from a family rooted in traditions but tempered with a good sense of adventurous hippie attitudes, Diyet has created a musical presence that is as diverse as her Southern Tutchone, Tlingit, Japanese and Scottish heritage. She discovered her voice singing on the school bus, went on to acquire a degree in music, then became a published songwriter in Vancouver, BC. When the pull of the North was too strong, she packed her bags, and her Dutch husband, moving back to her village of 90 people without a plan or even a pub to play in. The result of this unlikely career move has been international collaborations, extensive touring and two acclaimed albums (The Breaking Point & When You Were King,) with the third album: Diyet & The Love Soldiers released in 2018 which received nominations for: “Folk Album Of The Year” at “The Indigenous Music Awards”, “Indigenous Artist Of The Year” at the “Western Canadian Music Awards” and “Indigenous Songwriter Of The Year” at the “Canadian Folk Music Awards” Diyet & The Love Soldiers is alternative country, folk, roots and traditional with catchy melodies and stories deeply rooted in Diyet’s Indigenous world view and northern life. Diyet sings in both English and Southern Tutchone (her native language) and plays bass guitar. Backed by Love Soldiers: husband and collaborator, Robert van Lieshout (acoustic guitar, drums & percussion) and Juno Award winning producer, Bob Hamilton (electric guitar, pedal steel & mandolin); this trio multi instrumental trio from the Yukon has a sound that can fill a big stage or capture an intimate room.

Sean K Preston (USA) @ 15u30
Like many underground roots bands, Sean K. Preston and the Loaded Pistols aren’t just country. They mix in a healthy dose of rockabilly, surf, blues, and serve it all with a dark punk attitude, punctuated with a grit and a growl which makes going to the concerts, or ge4ting a snoot full of the music a more frenetic experience.
