The 2nd annual TrouBeliever Fest moved to the mountain-metro town of Ogden, Utah, and featured a mix of national and local talent. Once again, Americana duo Troubadour 77 hosted the event and brought in Utah favorite Royal Bliss as the festival headliner. Both T77 and Royal Bliss brought fans to their feet with a finale tribute to the song catalog of Tom Petty. Other featured troubadours were Sammy Brue, 3hattrio, Billy Dean, Kelly Neff, Cheyenne Medders, Rebekah Powell, Tim Daniels. This year's Acoustic Cafe featured a highlight to the festival's charity, O1Arts, with other great local talent and songwriting workshops.
Troubadour 77 launched their inaugural TrouBeliever Fest in August, 2018. It is quickly becoming the premiere singer-songwriter based festival in the nation and featured Americana troubadours Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Shawn Colvin, Sammy Brue, T77 and a slew of award-winning songwriters. Check out all the highlights here!
Troubadour 77 (aka T77) is a band that takes its musical, lyrical, sonic and production cues from the great singer-songwriter based bands of the 1970's. The song "Open Home" was written by founding band member Anna Wilson, and is a haunting and thoughtful take on the historical course of immigration in America. It views our situation today through the lens of how our cultures interacted in ages past. It is a powerful commentary on the current position we find ourselves in.
