Bill Finch started playing the saxophone, clarinet and bassoon when he was fourteen. He’s played in many big bands in California and Las Vegas.  He will be playing the sax at the Music Fest. 

Hadley Nelson is eighteen and a graduate of Olympus High, where she was a Sterling Scholar Semi Finalist in vocal music.  Hadley has been singing since she could talk, and was vocally trained for eight years by Jann McCardell.  She sings all genres of music, her favorite being contemporary R&B, pop and indie rock. Logan Nelson will accompany on guitar 

Paul Egleston is a Holladay native and resident and holds a degree in music from the University of Idaho. He first started taking guitar lessons in childhood from Scott Ferguson. He has also taken up viola in middle age and enjoys playing in a local orchestra. Paul is still searching for the elusive perfect classical guitar gig and has demo CDs available for anyone interested in what he can offer.

The Kage Hughart Project is a four piece, blues/rock band that brings a new and original experience with a classic throwback feel. Kage Hughart - guitar & vocals, Harry Kirk - bass & vocals, Max Salter - guitar & vocals, and Jimmy Burns - drums

Luke Hopkins is seventeen years old and a senior at Olympus High.  He began taking singing lessons from Dean Kaelin at age eleven and learned to play the piano and guitar and to write his own music.  He is a singer/songwriter who spends his free time at concerts listening to other artists and musicians.  You can find Luke’s original songs and other recordings on ITunes, Spotify and YouTube: Luke Hopkins

 Anthony Reed’s performance, alias “Good I Dear,” is a new weird American freaky folk-inspired looper, blending vocals, guitar, and beats.
