Chamomile and Whiskey's eclectic sound blends Americana and Southern Rock with Irish, Gypsy, and Old-Time all wrapped up in a raging live performance.

In 2011 in Nelson County, VA, Koda Kerl and Marie Borgman poured some Evan Williams in a hot cup of tea and decided to start a band. The idea was to organically grow a sound based around lively shows that would not be restricted by genre. They joined forces with Irishmen Ryan Lavin and started ferociously playing as much as they could. After a year of building a reputation playing rowdy bar sets they signed with County Wide Records and cut their first EP "The Barn Sessions." The band quickly gained recognition regionally and after releasing their debut full-length record "Wandering Boots," they began touring. A few years of cross-country tours and the band started to hit their stride, averaging nearly 150 shows a year. Their sophomore record "Sweet Afton" is slated for a mid 2017 release, with the first singles coming soon.

Keith Morris and the Crooked Numbers return to the Batesville Market to perform their original songs, including highlights from their latest album, The Dirty Gospel.

The Dirty Gospel, according to Keith Morris and his band The Crooked Numbers, combines achingly honest songwriting with grit and swagger to create music that gets at the heart of how it feels to be alive. Hailing from Charlottesville (VA), the band’s third release embodies the voice of an outsider pushed to the edge by personal experience amidst a world that seems intent on collapse.

The Crooked Numbers, stellar players from the Charlottesville music scene, round out The Dirty Gospel. The band alternately wail, whisper, slam, float and sting throughout the ten tracks. Subtle nuance in one song turns to catharsis in another, and the band handles the varying moods seamlessly. “The whole band deserves credit,” writes No Depression. “But the choir makes the album–four voices dipped in sugar and honey in just the right proportions.”
