March 25th 8pm $5 Down from WNC Lauren and Lane, Bre Surratt to open

by on Jan.01, 2017, under Live Music

“Lauren and Lane—faces familiar to the music world answering to a new name, their middle names, to be exact. This alternative folk duo with bluegrass influence plays a variety of instruments and styles. Their sweet and melodious harmonies create a signature sound that it is unique to this project. Lauren and Lane is currently in the studio recording their debut EP. While this pair is new to the music scene, their track record speaks for itself. Already they are performing shows and featuring with other respected artists including Jim Avett, father of The Avett Brothers. We can be sure to expect great strides from Lauren and Lane.

Kellie Lane Hatley Sides and Kacie Lauren Hatley were born and bred out of small town Stanfield, North Carolina. Raised as fifth generation bluegrass musicians, the Hatley sisters are no strangers to the stage. At the age of 3, both Kellie and Kacie were quite literally thrown into the arena by singing with The Hatley Family Band, a bluegrass gospel arrangement, performing for crowds of over a thousand people. Sharing the stage with other siblings and cousins, the girls learned to harmonize at an early age.  More info http://www.laurenandlane.com/

Sept 16th 8pm Live from “Iowa’s Renaissance Man” Chad Elliott

by on Jan.01, 2017, under Live Music

Like the dark earth of his Iowa origins, Chad Elliott’s life has served as fertile ground for music. Elliott has turned love, loss, fatherhood, divorce and homelessness into lyrics. He performs more than 200 shows each year and is lauded as “Iowa’s Renaissance man” by Culture Buzz. He has cultivated more than 1,000 songs in his career while also honing his skills as painter, sculptor and children’s book author/illustrator (Wilderman’s Treetop Tales).

Elliott’s early career demonstrates a love of folk, roots and singer-songwriter music. He has worked with many greats and shared the stage with artists of the highest caliber, including Odetta, Tom Paxton, Loudon Wainwright III, R.L. Burnside, Greg Brown, Bo Ramsey, etc. Today, his songwriting has made a marked shift to Americana.

On his 20th album, “Wreck and Ruin,” Elliott dives into his love of roots-rock, soul and blues music with a rocking band behind his artfully crafted songs. Producer and drummer, Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo) lined up the best rhythm and lead players in Nashville to create Elliott’s greatest album to date. Guitarist and bassist Kenny Vaughan and Dave Roe, legendary Nashville players, add the needed touches to rocket Elliott’s songs into a new arena of hard driving Americana. Here’s what Will Kimbrough had to say about “Wreck and Ruin.”

“Chad Elliott has assembled not only a great group of songs, but some of Nashville’s finest roots music practitioners and producer drummer Ken Coomer to make a soulful and beautiful album. Townes would be proud.” – Will Kimbrough
Elliott is currently working on his 21st album, titled “RINGGOLD.” This album is all about family, home and his life as a songwriter. It travels back to the roots of his hometown in Lamoni, IA. In fact, it is recorded in his grandparent’s home, which he purchased last fall. Elliott plans to release RINGGOLD in 2017.
