Butch Zito (New Castle County)—Butch’s musical trail started in Austin, Texas in the early 1980s when he formed Stackabones, a jam band who over the years have been featured at a number of Festivals, including The Delmarva Folk Festival. Butch moved to Wilmington in 1985 and his band signed a recording contract with Relix Records in 1989. Stackabones have shared the stage with such artists as New Riders of the Purple Sage, Billy Kreutzman and the 7 Walkers, Mickey Hart, Left Over Salmon, and The Wailers. As a soloist, Butch has performed on the same bill as Townes Van Zandt & Nancy Griffith at Austin’s legendary Folkville Ice Cream Parlor. He has also appeared with Pete Seeger, Michelle Shocked, and David Bromberg. Butch was the recipient of a Delaware Division of the Arts Established Artist Award in 2014. He used the award to help construct a performance space on his New Castle County farm where he and his wife regularly present their “Farm Music Series”, host benefits for Pacem in Terris, and produce the “Xtianstock“ and “Chickenstock” festivals which help underprivileged students buy musical instruments.

Jim Rezac (Kent County)—Jim has been playing in country, rock, and rockabilly band for over 30 years. A sideman for most of that time, Jim honed his skills playing guitar, cigar-box slide, and six-string banjo. Less than 10 years ago, he stepped out as a solo artist and that move has taken him to performances at the Avalon Theater, the Grand Opera House, and The Bitter End in NYC. Jim released his first solo CD in 2013 and is currently writing and recording a follow-up album. Jim plays a Baden acoustic guitar, but also “plugs in” with a Gretsch 6120W, a Telecaster, and a homemade “cigar-box” slide. He has a teaching and performance space in Wyoming where he offers lessons and hosts small concerts.

Ed Shockley (Sussex County)—Ed has been in the entertainment business his entire life; as a musician, singer, songwriter, and producer. After first establishing himself on the music scene in Delaware, Ed went on the road which included a 17 year stop in Manhattan, and has now come full circle, back to his Sussex County roots. In the 70’s and 80’s his band, Jack of Diamonds, was the most popular on the scene, and his song “Dodge City” is still an anthem to many music fans in the mid–Atlantic region. After moving to New York, he signed a major record and publishing deal with RCA. As a member of SAG and AFTRA he has appeared on stage and television with his voice used in many radio and TV commercials. Back home in Delaware, Ed has headlined the Rehoboth Beach Autumn Jazz Festival and was recognized by the Delaware Celebration of Jazz Society as “The Ambassador of Music”. Ed has recorded three CD’s with his all original blue eyed soul band, ”Vinyl Shockley.” He lives in Lewes with his wife Jill, and son Buck.

Music: Country / Folk / Bluegrass Kids & Family Friendly Central Delaware
