Audiences love Cane Mill Road’s high-energy performances, easy-going rapport both on and off stage, and the eclectic mix of originals and standards in the show. Touring internationally in Argentina and stateside from New York to Alabama to Missouri to Pennsylvania to Kentucky to Tennessee to Virginia and the Carolinas, the band is proud to be sponsored by Deering Banjos, GHS Strings, Shubb Capos, Sorensen Mandolin & Guitar Company, Kogut Violins, and MiniFlex Microphones.

Bethany Jewell Art Residency August 12-18 in Blowing Rock

Meet Bethany during her residency and see her work in action. Learn more about the process she uses for each piece and her commitment to cultivating awareness on the unique environment that remains so special to many of us.

“I’ve worn many hats trusting my heart.  They have led me to spectacular places and people.  From the shores of Dakar, Senegal to the inspiring halls of Harvard’s Widener Library, I’ve been blessed with many adventures.  My biggest adventure now is trusting my heart in pursuit of the art that wakes me at night.  It’s an idea that maybe I can take the complexity of our natural world and cut through the cacophony of our technological moment to find my own inner stillness…and maybe bring others to theirs.” – Bethany
