THE NEW FAMILIARS
Jul 28 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Charlotte’s The New Familiars have grown into an Americana Rock fixture in the southeast playing their own style of “American Rock & Roll” for years now. Drawing from the vast influences, they’ve shaped a sound that combines the nitty-gritty roots music of the Appalachia with the guitar-drenched-drum-driven anthems of Rock & Roll. Through collective songwriting, howling harmonies, & multi-instrumental talent, their show can take you from a back porch hoe-down to a full on rock show at the change of an instrument.

Making the road their home, their high energy shows have gained them notoriety not only in the press, but also among their peers. The band has been paired with legendary artists like Levon Helm, Del McCoury, and Gregg Allman; as well as new school greats like The Infamous Stringdusters, Langhorne Slim, and Scythian. Known to be a group of fun loving guys, their musicianship has wooed the likes of Ronnie McCoury (Travelin’ McCourys), Johnny Neel (Allman Brothers Band), Bob Margolin (Muddy Waters) and John Cowan (New Grass Revival/Doobie Brothers) to join them on stage for some epic nights of picking and grinning. In 2012, they were asked to perform at the Democratic National Convention and then later asked to open for Vice President Biden on his trip to Charlotte.

Ever the freedom seekers, the band has remained independent of labels and management as they’ve navigated their way through the festival, theatre, and club scene nationwide. They’ve played some of the best music festivals in the country.

Casey Clark
Oct 20 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

FREE SHOW
For fans of: Tyler Childers, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church

Honesty always attracts a crowd,” and it’s proven to be a potent tool for Nashville based North Carolinian Casey Clark. A firm believer in the power of a well crafted tune, Clark’s work as a songwriter and road dog have won him respect from industry icons and classic country fans alike. Clark is on a relentless journey to capture the people and scenery of rural America one last time before they cease to exist.

Showcasing these stories is a 5 song EP with Grammy award winning engineer Matt Ross
Spang (Jason Isbell, Drive By Truckers, Margo Price). From steel stomping robbery song
“Train,” inspired by the Outlaw Jesse James; to hard working beer cave anthem “Get my ChairOut,” Clark continues to sing his unfiltered southern truth. Trust me, your ears are better for it!
