The Lancaster Festival welcomes rock icon KANSAS.
With a legendary career spanning more than four decades, KANSAS has firmly established itself as one of America’s iconic classic rock bands. This “garage band” from Topeka released their debut album in 1974 after being discovered by Wally Gold, who worked for Don Kirshner, and have gone on to sell more than 30 million albums worldwide.

Composing a catalogue that includes fifteen studio albums and five live albums, KANSAS has produced eight gold albums, three sextuple-Platinum albums (Leftoverture, Point of Know Return, Best of KANSAS), one platinum live album (Two for the Show), and two one million-selling gold singles, Carry On Wayward Son and Dust in the Wind. KANSAS appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s and played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan. Carry On Wayward Son continues to be one of the top five most played songs on classic rock radio, and Dust In the Wind has been played on the radio more than three million times!

In the fall of 2018, KANSAS embarks on the Point of Know Return Anniversary Tour in select markets. This tour will not only culminate in the multi-platinum album Point of Know Return performed in its entirety, but will also feature classic hits, deep cuts, and fan favorites..

The band, which is currently comprised of original drummer Phil Ehart, bassist/vocalist Billy Greer, keyboardist Tom Brislin, vocalist/keyboardist Ronnie Platt, violinist/guitarist David Ragsdale, guitarist Zak Rizvi, and original guitarist Richard Williams. KANSAS continues to perform in front of large and enthusiastic audiences around the world.

Along with constant touring, KANSAS continues to remain a fixture of Classic Rock radio. The band has reached a whole new audience through their unmistakable presence on the popular video games Rock Band and Guitar Hero, and through their songs’ inclusion in various television shows such as ‘Supernatural,’ and ‘South Park,’ and with films ‘Old School,’ and ‘Anchorman.’

Guitar Sensation Arielle



Arielle is considered a music industry triple threat because she could enjoy an impressive
career solely as a singer, songwriter or guitar player, but she has combined all three of those
gifts to create a unique artistry that defies genres and borders.

She recently opened for Eric Johnson on his 3-month long tour earlier this year, as well as
played and/or opened for Vince Gill, Gregg Allman, Heart, Joan Jett, Country Joe McDonald,
Eric Johnson, Paul Gilbert, Andy Timmons, and many more. She has already made the cover
of Guitar Player magazine and released the single “California,” which reached No. 3 on CMT
Pure Charts.

She is the guitar player for Avery in the TV show Nashville, where she currently resides. Her
voice gains comparison to Karen Carpenter and Eva Cassidy for the purity with a four octave

Arielle has an associate degree from the Musician’s Institute in L.A. and studied at London’s
Institute of Contemporary Music Performance. Queen’s Brian May created a guitar role
specifically for her in the West End musical We Will Rock You. She also played guitar on
tour with Cee Lo Green.

Her most recent release, ‘My Gypsy Heart,’ her classic folk rock release debuted for 8 weeks
on the Billboard Charts in 11 different categories.

Arielle is also a dolphin and whale activist, and is currently working on a unique guitar line,
based off her custom prototype, Two-Tone, with Brian May (Queen). Whether it’s her guitar
playing or singing, she never feels the need to show off. Indeed, she adheres to the
philosophy that less can be more when it comes to expressing experiences through her
songs. “The hardships and the insecurities are the reasons
why I’m able to be vulnerable and real” she says.
