The Andy Newbrey & the Electro-Bluesy-Grass Band sound is an eclectic blend of bluegrass, old-school delta blues and Gospel music.

We welcome Cayton & Brown to their first Kansas Sampler Festival. Sissy Cayton and Barry Brown formed the duo early 2012. Both members have experience in musical genres ranging from Christian to Bluegrass and bring varied musical stylings to their performances.
Jami Amber Lynne began entertaining at the Kansas Sampler Festival when it was held in Leavenworth, Kansas in 2010 and 2011. Jami is a young teenager who practices dance moves in front of the mirror, pours over fashion magazines, goes to the movies, attends high school football games, and loves hanging out with her friends. Though her interests might be typical for a teen, her musical gifts are another story. Jami counts some of her musical influences as Patsy Cline,
