Out of the heartland of America, stomping grounds of Truman and Twain, “powerhouse” troubadour Dana Cooper dedicated himself to a life of music over 40 years ago. This song poet engages and inspires audiences around the world with his quick wit, insightful stories and commanding presence. He has performed on Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage and the Kerrville Folk Festival where he was nominated for their Hall of Fame. Cooper’s mixture of flat-picking, finger-picking and percussive strumming style is legend among other guitarists. An expressive singer his voice is ageless evoking a rich lifetime of experience.
His prolific endeavors have resulted in 20 albums. The critically acclaimed Miracle Mile on Compass Records was nominated for a Nashville Music Award as “Best Pop Album” and was chosen by Performing Songwriter magazine as one of the top DIY recordings for the year. Working with co-producer/guitarist Thomm Jutz, Cooper recently released The Conjurer which features some of the bluesiest, rawest music of his career. Grammy-award-winning singer/songwriter Kim Carnes, who also co-wrote the opening song, “Enough,” joins Cooper on vocals.
Returning favorites to the "Flying Cat" stage, two of the members of New Augusta Bluegrass Band have been our good friends for more years than we can count!
New Augusta Bluegrass Band plays regularly at Upland Tasting Room and other central Indiana venues. Driving Bill Monroe bluegrass songs, plus country blues & fiddle tunes are the primary elements of a evening with NABB, but they're just as likely to include newgrass, old-time, gospel, honky-tonk, swing, and some singer-songwriter stuff, for good measure -- and have the audience singing along on old favorites.

Coming up in 2016 - details to be announced soon
"This veteran song poet is a self-contained road warrior--a man of many tunes and tunings, and a right hand few guitarists will ever know. Sharp eyes in the head on his shoulders, a droll sense of humor and the weathered heart of a person who's spent a lot of his life on the road alone. His voice speaks to your center with its pure clarity, but then it breaks and soars like a bird that flies into a strong wind. His music is vital, and live you see him channel all his energy into the song. The songs are smart, but they come from his heart."
