7:30pm-Closing Live Music: Earleine. Born in Clarksville Tennessee, just 40 miles outside of Nashville, Earleine grew up immersed in musical culture. At 18 she picked up the guitar, and soon began writing her own songs. Earleine made her way to the mountains in the winter of 2016 to expand her musical horizons. Genuine and shockingly honest, her songwriting is mixed with poetic lyricism, and dreamy harmonies that seem to lift hard time memories into ephemeral realms. Earleine’s style is a swirl of folk, rock, blues, and roots under a blanket of soul.

Not afraid to explore where a tune can go, Spoon Bread seeks to bring something interesting musically all while maintaining a tight groove. Weaving through blues, soul, funk, and rock and roll they seek to blend the genres into a tapestry of sonic goodness that embraces all styles with no prejudice!
