Saturday Night Concert
SATURDAY - SEPTEMBER 22, 2018 - 5:30 PM - 11:00 PM
A favorite part of every City festival is the Saturday Night Concert that takes place right in the heart of Edwardsville! The 2018 line-up is a great mix of local flavor with some Nashville mixed in! Check out the info below for all the details on the acts performing at AutumnFest 2018!
Canaan Cox is truly a manifestation of the phrase “hard work pays off.” With a “rules are meant to be broken” attitude, this NC bred country star has taken Nashville by storm. Having only lived in music city for little over a year, he’s made more waves in the town than even he thought were possible.
“People kept saying this was a 10 year town - that lit a fire for me. It made me want to prove them wrong.” Cox is surely off to the races. His debut single “Lie” charted in the first 2 weeks on Music Row and became one of the Top 20 most added songs there.
Cox has been featured on more than 15 country publications including Whiskey Riff, The Boot, and OneCountry, and doesn’t plan on stopping. “It’s great to relish in your victories, but it’s wise not to stay there. I’m constantly thinking, ‘What’s next?’”
Canaan is currently on a nationwide tour. His performance at AutumnFest will mark his first visit in Kansas
Matfield Green is an up-and-coming duo out of the Nashville area with roots in northeast Kansas. Songwriters Ian Mullins and Jackson Gulick paired up just a few years ago and stay busy with the bar scene in and around Nashville as well as shows in Manhattan, Topeka, Shawnee, and more. This will be the group's first gig as part of the AutumnFest line up and organizers hope their local ties bring in a great crowd!
Matfield Green is currently working on their debut EP. For more information on the group, including tour dates and contact information, click the link below.
The Dirty Bourbon Band
If you're a fan of live music in the Kansas City area, chances are you've seen the Dirty Bourbon Band once or twice and are anxious to see them again! They've had shows in Lawrence, Perry Lake, the Landing, Lake of the Ozarks, Belton, Overland Park, and so much more. They always bring a great atmosphere to their shows and AutumnFest can't wait to have them grace the stage!
