The Carbondale Council on Arts and Humanities announced the music lineup for its 44th annual Carbondale Mountain Fair, which takes place July 24-26 at Sopris Park.

Friday’s headliner, The Original Shakedown Street, performs in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Grateful Dead, which influenced the 44th Mountain Fair theme, “Eyes of the World.” Shakedown Street is preceded by Moon Hooch, a trio consisting of two saxophone players and a drummer from New York City.

On Saturday, a full day of music begins in the morning with Carbondale local Cody Jeffreys, a singer/songwriter who has been writing and performing original tunes since he was 16. In the afternoon, Los Angeles band Ivory Deville takes the stage with their honky-tonk-meets-glam-rock sound. Next up is Conjunto Colores, a band specializing in salsa dura, or “hard salsa,” which emphasizes strong percussion and horns over vocals. Bluegrass band Hot Buttered Rum closes out the Saturday evening shows.

Sunday morning features Carbondale’s own Starlettes, a band influenced by soul and rock, followed by Saddle the Unicorn, another local group with a sassy bluegrass sound. The all-female band SHEL comes next, right before Diego’s Umbrella, a gypsy rock band that played Mountain Fair three years ago. Closing the fair down is Brothers Keeper, consisting of some of the best players in the country who’ve shared stages with Dean Ween, John Oates, John Popper and more.
