Kivett Bednar Band

Front Porch Stage

2:30 PM

Vocalist and guitarist Kivett Bednar grew up in Austin, steeped in the Texas blues tradition. Sneaking into Antone’s to hear the greats, practicing to his dad’s old records, and honing his chops at Berklee led to an award-winning sound that is gritty, heartfelt and distinctly his own. 

Kivett Bednar is joined by drummer Edwin Coleman III, who mixes his roots in Louisiana and Cuban music with the West Coast swing he learned playing in clubs with his father. Bassist Edwin Coleman, Jr. creates a potent rhythmic stew, and on bass is Jeff Langston, who is another accomplished Berklee grad who’s played everywhere from CBGB to Carnegie Hall. Joining them on keys is multi-award-winning composer and producer Pat McDougall. This year the group became International Blues Competition semi-finalists and won a Muddy Award for Best New Act.
