Guest Artists

Engines of Commotion

The Engines of Commotion formed in 2009 after playing together in different Utah folk groups during the previous four years. Influenced by the revolutionary folk of the '60's, traditional Americana, and progressive acoustic music, the Engines smartly combine the American folk legacy with an energetic stage presence and a flair of originality to create a soulful and entertaining style.

Silver Rails

“Silver Rails” is one of Utah's newest up and coming Bluegrass groups. With State champions Dan Riggs on fiddle and Sarah Cluff on mandolin and guitar, they are joined by 1st place Old Time Fiddler Junior winner, Leah Cluff on fiddle, Sheri Cluff on guitar and banjo, Daniel Cluff on banjo, guitar and bass, and Emma Cluff on bass and percussion. The band enjoys playing many types of bluegrass music, adding their own unique style. From very traditional instrumentals and vocals to celtic pieces and originals, their variety sets them apart.


Firefly is a teenage band that performs a wide range of music: Celtic, American, and folk with a contemporary flavor. There are five members of Firefly: Abbi Mitchell, Alina Geslison, Isaac Geslison, Brianna Joy, and Grace Dayton. They range in age from 13 to 19.

Alina, Isaac, and Grace have competed in multiple state and national championships, having won numersous titles in these competitions. Alina and Grace are currently the 2009 National Old Time Fiddle Association Twin Fiddle champions. Each band member plays a variety of instruments.
