The stage will be shared by up to 20 musicians, including Walsh; former “Voice” competitor Kristen Brown; locally-based Nashville recording artist Michael Gregory; Michael Curtis, Jr.;Flying Eugene Flowers; Kevin Jachetta ; Matt Twain; Ian Worley; Danielle Walsh Mata; Sunny Mitchell; Jerry Verseput;Mark Wheeler; Amy, Lizzy and Maddie Malekos; Joe Orlando, Geoffrey Miller; and Mitch Ballard. Cornell serves as guest emcee for the show.

“We will perform a chronology of songs from classic country artists such as Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn and Hank Williams, through the country-pop era of Lady A, Lee Ann Womack, Shania Twain and Carrie Underwood; and into the country-rock era of The Eagles, Poco and Linda Ronstadt,” said Walsh. “Stellar musical performances combined with fantastic vocalists will provide an entertaining show unlike any other here in our hometown of Folsom.”

The event is free and family friendly. Walsh said guests are encouraged to arrive early, set-up low-back lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy dinner in the historic district before the show. Beer and wine will be available at the event.
