Gangstagrass – While hip-hop and country may seem like an unlikely pairing, Gangstagrass goes all in on the combo. Since wooing fans with their unique sound, the band hit the mainstream with their song, “Long Hard Times to Come,” created for the FX Network western series, “Justified.” Rench, who previously made a name for himself as a country and hip-hop producer and singer-songwriter, has toured the country with bluegrass pickers and hip-hop emcees. A fan of both genres, Rench wondered what it was sound like to combine rap vocals and beats with classic bluegrass. The result: the genre bending Gangstagrass.
Freekbass – One of the world’s greatest bass players, Freekbass has worked alongside legendary singer-songwriter Bootsy Collins, keyboardist Bernie Worrell and other icons of the funk genre. His sound is energetic, infectious and danceable — showcasing his stellar bass playing and crew of collaborating musicians, The Bump Assembly.

The Harvest Market, on Minnesota Avenue, will be teeming with the colors and fragrances of fall’s bounty.
