Better Ride kicks off the event with pre-show entertainment at 5:45 p.m. The group started as a writing project designed to include people with developmental disabilities. When it formed in 2010, the project was intended to run for a month. But after writing stories, and producing and filming a screenplay, the group started writing songs. In their first three years, the group has performed more than 150 shows across South Dakota.
The Copoetics feature Louisa on a five-string ukulele and Dan on a six-string guitar. The folk outfit blends its acoustic strings with Louisa's vocals.
Listen to The Copoetics from their latest album, "Finding The Four"
