Twangfest is pleased to confirm that St. Louis band Nadine will co-headline on Friday, June 12, 2015 at Off Broadway. Nadine will close out Friday night of Twangfest 19, with Lydia Loveless performing just before Nadine, and Trio Project opening the night at 8 p.m.

Nadine’s appearance at Twangfest 19 will be the band’s first performance in over a decade. The lineup will include Adam Reichmann, Steve Rauner, Todd Schnitzer, Jimmy Griffin and Merv Schrock.

On April 9, 2015, Anne Tkach, bass player for Nadine (and member of many other St. Louis bands), died in a house fire in Webster Groves, Missouri. Nadine’s appearance at Twangfest 19 will take place, as scheduled, and will be in honor of Anne’s memory.

Today, Twangfest is proud to announce a new music series: GadellNet Saturday Sessions at the Tower Grove Farmers’ Market.

The tradition of live, acoustic music continues at the Tower Grove Farmers’ Market this season with this free concert series, sponsored by GadellNet, an IT consulting firm based in St. Louis, and presented by Twangfest. Additional sponsors of the series include Kuva Coffee and the Tower Grove Farmers’ Market.

GadellNet Saturday Sessions kicks off on May 23 with a performance by veteran, old-time string band Missouri Breaks. The season will run through October 3, 2015, and will feature local and national artists, all performing under the West Pool Pavilion in Tower Grove Park.

Music begins at 10 a.m. each Saturday and runs till noon. As always, the music is free and family friendly.
