About the Bands: 
Salzburger Echo
Salzburger Echo brings the Alps to their audiences, playing Old World and contemporary folk music from the alpine regions of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Together since 1992, Salzburger Echo has played at countless venues and many of the largest festivals throughout the United States and Europe. Through each performance, they continue to amaze audiences with their twelve-foot alphorns, Swiss cowbells, and harmony yodeling.

The Medicine Company
In 2019 after a series of failed bands, projects, and relationships, Rock n’ Roll purists Mac Wray, Chandler Seipert, and Bryant Adair met up to try a new. Influenced by the great Rock n’ Roll, Country, and Soul groups of the sixties and seventies the trio forged a volume of songs from the ashes of their pasts. Songs of heartbreak, loss, dissatisfaction, action, revolution and renewed hope. The group began to play around Salt Lake as a three guitar act singing harmonies in the vein of bootlegging, deep-mountain folk music. After auditioning a number of drummers the group finally found the missing link in powerhouse Connor Gerson. Inspired by the likes of John Bonham, Bill Ward, Nick Mason, and Patrick Hallahan, Gerson rounded out the bands energetic sound. Joined by a tag-team of keyboard players Danny Shaw and young William Sangster the band has actively been playing shows all over the western United States.
