Entertainment for our Pre-Festival Events - Details Soon

With what began as an acoustic music side project between three friends, 30 Fingers has stood the
test of time. Guitarist Jeffrey Rupp, bassist Jim Beaty and percussionist Earl Six have each had their share of success in many local groups, but consistently return to the trio format for performances ranging from festivals to club dates to private parties and receptions.

Drawing from a broad pallet of songs, these consummate pros play a little of everything – from James Taylor and Van Morrison to surprising covers by Jethro Tull and Prince. “We really try to touch all bases,” says Beaty. “Give everyone a taste of something they know and have a great time in the process – that’s what makes a good night for us. We all sing, so we tend to spread lead vocals all around. Plus, having a lot of harmony vocals are what make us a little different from most acts.”

This Starkville-based trio has been around since the late 90s and have opened for several national acts including The Guess Who, Paul Thorn and Foghat. As great friends both on and off the stage, 30 Fingers look forward to many more gigs together – all of them in perfect harmony.

2019 Mississippi Music Foundation, Song of the Year Winner
-  Jodie Ross is a vibrant, free-spirited MissiHippie singer/songwriter, whose musical style is as rich as the mud in the mighty Mississippi. Growing up in Louisville, Mississippi, Jodie found her love for music while singing at her local church. Growing up, everything from southern gospel and hymns to Motown classics to classic rock and country were played in her family home. Jodie was captivated by the sounds of Stevie Nicks, Melissa Ethridge and her idol, Dolly Parton. Dolly was not only a classic country icon who transcended time but remained true to herself and musical style. She showed Jodie that it is important to have a big heart for others, which is why Jodie worked for a number of years as a board-certified music therapist at a residential facility for adults with intellectual disabilities. Jodie has seen first-hand the power that music has to heal and to unite people from all over Mississippi. Now this wife and mother wants to touch more people with her own MissiHippie Music. She wants people to hear genuine, raw emotion and to feel like someone else out there has had similar experiences, no matter what they may be going through. William Faulkner once said, "To understand the world, you must first understand a place like Mississippi." To those who have never experienced Mississippi, it is nothing special, but to Jodie, Mississippi is home. Its hospitality, slowness of life, richness in culture and musical roots have helped shape Jodie Ross.
