7:30pm-10:30pm Live music: Earleine. Born in Clarksville Tennessee, just 40 miles outside of Nashville, Earleine grew up immersed in musical culture. At 18 Earleine picked up the guitar, and soon began writing her own songs. Shortly after high school she moved to the piedmont of North Carolina and began playing shows with the musical duo “Whiskey Pines”, touring relentlessly around the region. In the past year, Earleine has moved to the mountains of Boone and struck out on her own, releasing her debut album “Small Town Sober”, and playing in venues across North Carolina. With many miles, and hard luck experiences already under her belt, “Small Town Sober” is a stunning autobiographical lament to living in a rural area, with nothing better to do than drink. In a struggle of self-realization, Earleine’s voice lingers with deep lustrous melodies over each track. Genuine and shockingly honest, Earleine’s account is mixed with poetic lyricism, and dreamy harmonies that seem to lift these hard time memories in to ephemeral realms. Inspired by indie Americana bands such as First Aid Kit, and Shovels and Rope her music displays influences from many musical genres, combining Country, Folk, Bluegrass, Pop, and Rock into an alluring dynamic sound.

Friday August 26

7:30pm-Closing Live Music: The Lucky Strikes. From classic jazz standards made popular today by artists such as Diana Krall and Tony Bennett, to timeless hits from the 50s, 60s and 70s, The Lucky Strikes’ musical repertoire spans over four decades. Whether it’s conversational background music, esoteric jazz selections, toe-tappin’ swingin’ dance tunes or golden oldies, our goal is to complement your event with some of the finest music ever written.

Saturday August 27

8:30pm-Closing Live Music: Wiregrass Band. Bluegrass. That’s what brought this group together but it’s not all we do. We all have different influences and it just seems to be a lot more fun when ya just play what ya feel. So as not to confuse you…we just play whatever feels right!
