The Dependents

The Dependents are a backyard act from downtown Johnson City, TN. The trio focuses on their musicianship while weaving elements of humor and their Appalachian heritage throughout their performance.

While busking is their regular gig, the youngsters have also shared their talent at local venues including the Down Home, Barter Theater, the Blue Plum Festival, Abingdon's Buskerfest, and local farmer's markets. The trio brings to life old-time, good-time Appalachian music that is sure to get you singing and your toes tapping along.

Aaron Walker Band

If there was a sound that captures the words Outlaw, Hey Y'all, and Yee Haw this side of the Nolichucky, there would be no other group that comes to mind more clearly than Aaron Walker and the band that backs him. Aaron Walker Band delivers a very energetic feel on stage with passion and a burning for what some may say is missing in certain realms of country music today. They are a group of guys all born and raised in the hills of East Tennessee and have been bringing their own style and sound to the country music scene. The band consists of Taylor Johnson on guitar and vocals, Daniel Messer on guitar and vocals, Ethan Maltsburger on bass, Tad Norton on drums, and the man with the name himself Aaron Walker handling the reins and lead vocals
