The Quitters

Mostly acoustic celebration of flatpick and fingerstyle mastery!

Lafayette Art & Wine Festival - Bank of the West Stage


Sunday, September 16, 2018

11:30 am to 12:30 pm

The Quitters are a guitar duo consisting of a right-side up finger picker (Stevie Coyle) and an upside down flat picker (Glenn Houston). More importantly they were two of the three founding members of the virtuoso string band, The Waybacks, and one was the long-time lead guitarist and co-founder of the Americana powerhouse, Houston Jones. Now they play together, on their own, hence the name, "The Quitters". They deliver a mostly acoustic celebration of flatpick and fingerstyle mastery, plus vocals, spiced with humor and serendipity.

The Lafayette Art & Wine Festival, now in its 24th year in 2019, will be held on Saturday, September 21 (10 a.m. to 7 p.m.) and Sunday, September 22 (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.). The Festival is free to attend and just steps from Lafayette BART.
