Tim Easton // Lou Shields

September 26, 2018

SOLD OUT!

To celebrate thirty years of traveling with and writing songs on his black Gibson J-45 acoustic guitar named Paco," Nashville based songwriter *Tim* *Easton* recorded an entire album DIRECT TO LACQUER at The Earnest Tube Studio in Bristol, Virginia. This performance based method of capturing songs leaves no room for manipulation or overdubbing, therefore conjuring the roots of American Music. Each track was recorded via portable lathe which cuts a mono signal directly to a lacquer acetate disc, much the way The Carter Family or Jimmie Rodgers would have made their first records in Bristol over 90 years ago. In as much time as it takes to listen, Easton recorded nine original songs and one cover using a single 1940s RCA 74B ribbon microphone, alternating between the rapid fire flat- picking and steady Travis-style thumb picking technique that he has been streamlining all these years, coupled with his Country Blues style rack harmonica playing. The occasional foot stomp can be heard as well, vibrating through the floors. Easton sings songs from the personal experiences and observations of man who has spent a few decades on the road. His folk music is not always the gentle kind. His authenticity is pervasive. This is what the tradition of the troubadour sounds like.

The Pines (Friday Show)

September 28, 2018

SOLD OUT!

Rising out of the prairies of the Midwest, *The Pines* are one of the most distinct and powerful indie-rock/Americana groups to hit the national scene in years. Emerging from the same Minneapolis music world that spawned such notable acts as The Jayhawks, The Replacements and Bob Dylan, The Pines have gathered a stunning line-up of musical talent, in both their live shows and on record, that has gained them a faithful and growing following. Frontmen Benson Ramsey and David Huckfelt share a common musical language rooted in the songs and songwriters of their native Iowa, while each bringing a distinct voice and sensibility to the sound that Rolling Stone senior writer David Fricke called quietly gripping stark-country. The mysterious sound of The Pines fuses Bensons ethereal, otherworldly, heart-piercing songs with Davids earthy, darkly romantic and rough-hewn visionary tales. With masterful guitar work, beautiful vocals and the graceful keyboard and vocal additions of Bensons brother Alex Ramsey, the core of The Pines sound captivates and elevates with rare intimacy. Various touring configurations keep The Pines live show fresh and dynamic, from the full band with rhythm section to the versatile essence of the Ramsey, Huckfelt, Ramsey trio.
