Songs of the Fall is a Colorado-based Americana band featuring 5 time Grammy Nominee Cia Cherryholmes on banjo and vocals, and Stetson Adkisson on guitar and vocals. Songs of the Fall has been described as a meeting of celtic, delta blues and bluegrass and referred to as the American version of the Swell Season. Sonically, the music ranges from driving and gritty Americana performed by a 5-piece band to beautiful country ballads sung by Cherryholmes and Adkisson as a duo. Opening for Songs of the Fall are The Baptist Generals. Known for their claustrophobic and haunting musical imagery, the Baptist Generals have performed worldwide and are signed to the Sub-Pop recording label.
The bands will also host a master class for high school and college students.

"This Filthy World" is Waters’s rapid-fire one-man spoken word "vaudeville" act that celebrates the film career and joyously appalling taste of the man William Burroughs once called "The Pope of Trash." It is updated and expanded from the original film version that enjoyed critical success at the Edinburgh, Toronto and Berlin Film Fest.
