The 2nd annual Mac & Cheese Festival presented by Dakota
Community Bank & Trust announces its live music lineup, including Prairie Road, Jake Ingramar, Lilly Danielle, and Frantic Anarchy’s Natalie Eslinger and Randy Taix. Prairie Road is an acoustic trio from Bismarck. Much more than a country or folk act,the band plays songs from many genres and eras. Jake Ingramar is an indie singer-songwriter who's opened for acts such as Band of Horses, Parker Millsap, and Charlie Parr, to name a few. He'll be playing everything from The Beatles to folk/rock covers and some originals in between. Lilly Danielle is a 16-year-old singer/songwriter from Fargo. Her original songs are a mix of pop, country, folk, blues and a little rock & roll.
Natalie Eslinger and Randy Taix are a duo from Bismarck and part of the Frantic
Anarchy pop/rock cover band. The duo also performed at the first annual Mac & Cheese Fest in 2023.
