Last year's musical guests, the Seymour Sisters, return for this year's event. The band features Kate Wolff on dobro, Laura Williams on guitar and lead vocals, Betsy Williams on bass, and Beth Spicer on banjo, mandolin, and guitar. Specializing in synchronized rhythm and harmony, the quartet found music had a healing effect and helped them find and spread joy in difficult times. They play a blend of bluegrass, old time, gospel, and folk.

Joining the sisters on the bill this year is Bourbon Shuffle. The trio has been playing in and around Putney since 2006. They play an eclectic mix of acoustic folk music, drawing material from traditional folk, country, blues, and rock. The band features Janet Goldstein on double bass and vocals, Sue Caviola on banjo and vocals, and Mark Baker on fiddle and vocals.
