SCOTT KURT & MEMPHIS 59
Feb 15 @ 3:00 pm – 6:30 pm
SCOTT KURT & MEMPHIS 59

Scott Kurt grew up in America’s Rust Belt, and the grittiness of his roots is evident in every aspect of his music. From his debut album, “Ragged But Right,” recorded with his band Memphis 59, to his first solo effort “Down This Road,” he captures the essence of hard living, hard work and hard times in deeply personal lyrics delivered by a whiskey-tinged barroom voice wrapped up inside a whole lot of full-tilt country-rock guitar.
It’s a reverence for telling the stories of a small town way of life that drew Scott to country music. “Nashville turns out great songs, with catchy hooks, sure – but the best of them tell great stories. When you close your eyes, and listen to the lyrics and that movie reel in your head starts turning – that’s what I want my songs to do for people.”

His songs have earned Scott comparisons to legends like Steve Earle, Tom Petty and Gary Allan, as well as multiple Washington Area Music Association nominations, and opening slots for some of country’s biggest and brightest stars, including Cole Swindell, Eli Young Band, Kip Moore, Easton Corbin, Frankie Ballard, Joe Nichols and personal idol Radney Foster. Scott currently resides in Sterling, Virginia, and fans can see him perform regionally at venues like Hill Country D.C., The Hamilton, The Fillmore and The State Theatre.

Growing up, music was always a prominent part of Chris Cassaday’s life. Whether it be singing in the back seat of his mom’s car, or watching his dad play the drums, Chris was hooked on music at an early age. And after receiving his first guitar at age 14, Chris honed his songwriting skills over the next few years, playing in various bands and as a solo act throughout high school and college.
After graduating from JMU in 2014, Chris independently released his first professionally recorded solo album The Savannah Sessions on May 25th, 2015. Chris got to work with producer/engineer Ted Bowne Of Passafire, one of Chris’s greatest influences and favorite musicians. Chris’s original song My Oh My off of the album was sought out by Sirius XM radio and is now being played regularly on Sirius XM’s the Coffee House (Ch. 14). Chris also performed a live session for Sirius XM in September 2015 that was featured on the air. After two years of extensive live performances around the country, Chris released his next studio effort Stranger Places on April 10th, 2017.
Chris has performed live for countless audiences both solo and with his band “The Cassaday Concoction” all over the country and even abroad and has proven quickly that he is a must-see live act. Chris’s unique blend of blues, rock, folk and funk, and his thunderous, distinctive voice have started to gather him a significant following.
