Common Ground is a seasoned, energetic, Traditional Acoustic Music band from East-central Indiana. They blend smooth vocal harmonies, the natural acoustic sounds of handmade instruments, playful banter and thoughtful insight into a lively, up-beat performance. Playing and singing music is a passion for these men, and they experience great solace and excitement as they resurrect songs of old and develop new songs and sounds. More information on their website.

Berachah Valley from Ohio was created in the spring of 2005 when a few friends came together searching for a place to play traditional bluegrass, gospel, and traditional renditions of current favorites. Audiences quickly see the result is a uniquely smooth combination of musicianship and female vocal harmonies influenced by the recordings of The Isaacs', The Forbes Family, Emmylou Harris, The Whites, and other various artists.

2 Corinthians 2:14 (AMP) But thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumph and through us spreads and makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere..

Mercy †riumphs formed in the fall of 2012 to provide praise and worship music for the Christian Motorcycle Association (CMA) state rally. Even though some of the band members met for the first time at a sandwich shop there was an immediate friendship formed. The band is made up of members from various Christian worship bands across central Indiana. Each member remains committed to their local church. The root of the music is a blend of several genres including; country, rock, southern gospel and contemporary praise. Covering classics and personal favorites along with original songs, this style brings a positive, inspirational experience to any setting and appeals to diverse audiences. The heart of Mercy †riumphs is to worship and bring honor to God the Father and while doing so invite the presence of God to that moment so that others would have an opportunity to be renewed in faith, restored in health, or come to the knowledge of eternal salvation.

Members include:
Dann Berry – lead electric, Brenda Berry – Keyboards, Don Curts – bass/vocals, Ken Moore drums, Sharon Reidman – lead vocal/acoustic, Dave Turpin - vocals/acoustic, Gary Wallen – lead vocal/synth.
