Willy Tea Taylor, Sam Chase
WILLY TEA TAYLOR: Willy Tea Taylor is a father, brother, and son. His remarkable ability to sing about profound subjects in a simple way makes his songs a great place to lose yourself. Much of that comes from his upbringing. At the age of 18, a discerning and intimate set by Greg Brown at the Strawberry Music Festival inspired Willy to pursue life as a folk singer. Strawberry would play an integral role in Willy's development as a musician, going from spectator to stagehand, to performer. He made his main stage debut with his band the Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit at the 2009 festival. In 2015, Willy made his solo debut on the main stage. Willy has charmed fans at some of the best festivals in the country.
THE SAM CHASE: The Sam Chase hails from San Francisco, CA. Sam's performances range from hard rockin' drinking songs to sensitive ballads that fearlessly tackle the inner workings of the human condition. He has released 3 albums with his band, The Sam Chase & The Untraditional, and has performed at Outside Lands, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, High Sierra Music Festival, Kate Wolf Music Festival, and many clubs and theaters across the West Coast.
