Performing at the Main Room Stage, Albert Simpson, from Gadsden, Alabama, performs mostly solo with the acoustic guitar while utilizing percussion instruments like the tambourine and the porch board, which is an instrument that sounds like a kick drum. If you close your eyes, one would think they were listening to a whole band. Simpsons folksy back porch flavor makes his music feel like an old friend. After performing for over 20 years, this artist is now known as one of the best solo acts on the scene. His Southern-fried folk-funk flavor is intoxicating.
