Hunter Skeens And The Forerunners play a unique style of traditional and “grassed-up“ roots music. They’re just one of the 23 bands and artists who will play the Kent American Roots Festival presented by Wayside Furniture on Friday, April 26. All FREE. Hunter has proven to be a refreshing, yet formidable-force emerging from the doldrums of modern guitar picking. He offers both blazing speeds and insightful strumming paired with soulful vocals. Catch them at Kent Barflyy from 7:30-9pm. Check out the full schedule at
