Help us welcome hometown hero, Bonne Finken back to Knoxville for her first Peace Tree show in almost 4 years! A vocalist at heart, Finken has become a true music artist by immersing herself into a decade’s worth of studio work, learning composition by ear and writing her own Electronic/Rock music.
Finken changed the scope of the local scene when she became the first independent Iowa artist to receive regular rotation on the Top 40 radio station STAR 102.FM (KSTZ) with her single,”Step Back Baby” from acclaimed album “Fairytales/LoveAffairs”, which was nominated for Album of the Year by Indie Music Digest. Her music has been featured in national TV programs on MTV and E!
Finken continues to win fans of all ages for her vibrant live performances.

Ryne Doughty is a folk-roots musician out of Southeast IA, whose music is deeply rooted in real life stories of love, loss, work, and play. His stripped down, earthy sound is directly influenced by the small, rural town where he was born and raised. With solid finger-style guitar picking and a rich baritone voice he brings a dynamic of warmth and richness to the stage. Doughty’s performances are always passionate and full of energy and songs that tell real life stories. He’s performed at Peace Tree multiple times and has always brought a warmth and authenticity to every performance.
Joe & Vicki Price*
Saturday, November 18th @ 8pm
Still haven’t seen Joe & Vicki Price play the blues? Get out from under your rock and come boogie with us. This is one of the Midwest’s best roots-blues duos, and they always stomp out a great show when they stop by Peace Tree. Joe Price’s unimitable guitar warble is a combination of finger picking and slide that’s elastic and dynamic and deeply rooted in Delta blues. Vicki’s guitar work is equally impressive and provides a cleaner tone and balance. Together, this duo has toured together for nearly 30 years…and it shows with every performance. Mark your calendars for this one, folks. Joe & Vicki are coming to town.
