Out of the heartland of America, stomping grounds of Truman and Twain, “powerhouse” troubadour Dana Cooper dedicated himself to a life of music over 40 years ago. This song poet engages and inspires audiences around the world with his quick wit, insightful stories and commanding presence. He is the recipient of the 2014 Heritage Musician award from Pilgrim Center for the Arts in Kansas City, MO. He was also named the 2015 Spirit of Folk award winner by Folk Alliance International. He has performed on Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage and the Kerrville Folk Festival where he was nominated for their Hall of Fame. Cooper’s songs have been recorded by top-notch artists such as bluegrass star Claire Lynch; Irish vocalist Maura O’Connell; and luminary songwriters Pierce Pettis and Susan Werner. Cooper’s mixture of flat-picking, finger-picking and percussive strumming style is legend among other guitarists. An expressive singer his voice is ageless evoking a rich lifetime of experience.
Texas native Tommy Lewis is a touring singer-songwriter, author, and guitarist. He’s opened for world class songwriters and performers including Radney Foster, Jimmie Vaughan, Taylor Hicks (American Idol), Rod Picott, Dana Cooper, Jason Boland, and Granger Smith. He tours nationally as both a solo songwriter and as lead guitarist for Chad Elliott, playing close to 200 dates a year.
