The future of the blues may be glimpsed this weekend at the small performance tent to the right of the main stage. In Layman's Terms, a brother and sister duo from Virginia, will perform between the festival acts both days.

Cole Layman, 16, and Logan Layman, 14, have been making music together for as long as they can remember, and their vocal harmonies and use of foot percussion make for a gritty, soulful and unforgettable performance. They got the NABF pick after making a strong impression in the youth showcase portion of this year’s International Blues Competition in Memphis.

Logan, named 2013’s Blues Kid of the Year, is known as the little girl with the big voice and even bigger bass lines. Cole has found his guitar niche playing Coke bottle slide in standard tuning. The siblings are proud inductees into The Brotherhood of the Guitar, an elite group of young guitarists from all over the world. Their mother, Sandy, sometimes joins them on drums at their non-acoustic shows. They have a passion for the blues and write original, foot-stomping music.

Cole and Logan also are members of The UnXpected, an award-winning blues/rock band they formed with fellows students at the Academy of Rock Music in Newport News, Va.
