Monday Mar 24th @ 8pm Mipso: with Josh Tatum
Mipso: with Josh Tatum Bluegrass::Folk::Indie
The renegade traditionalists of Mipso -- Jacob Sharp on mandolin, Joseph Terrell on guitar, and Wood Robinson on double bass -- are doing their part to take three-part harmony and Appalachian influences into new territory. The three North Carolina songwriters have wandered off the path blazed by Earl Scruggs and Doc Watson to find a new clearing for their southern string band sound.

Opening Act: Josh Tatum (of Old World Heritage)

Cover: $5.00
Tuesday Mar 25th @ 8pm Gangstagrass
Gangstagrass Bluegrass::HipHop
Due to scheduling complications, the October 14th show for Gangstagrass has been rescheduled for Tuesday March 25th, 2014.

Gangstagrass is a fan favorite from Brooklyn, mixing bluegrass and rap styles, forging an entirely new and modern genre of utterly American music. Many people already know their song "Long Hard Times To Come" as the theme song to the FX hit TV show "Justified" which was nominated in 2010 for an Emmy as the Best Theme Song. Described by the Wall Street Journal as "a mixture of bluegrass and hiphop that might repel some purists on either side of the country and rap divide, but will knock the socks off just about everybody else," Gangstagrass is a cutting edge fusion of traditional and modern styles.

Opening Act: The Uncles are a blues, funk, & soul jazz trio featuring members of the Tall Boys, Club Dub, and Italian Beaches.

Wednesday Mar 26th @ 8pm ATTEMPT: with Warren Byrom
ATTEMPT: with Warren Byrom Pop::Acoustic
ATTEMPT is the solo project of prolific Lexington musician Trevor Tremaine (Hair Police, ARA, the Teenagers Responsible). Odd, angular, & beautiful pop songs trafficking in dissonances of both the harmonic and cognitive varieties.

Warren Byrom is the band leader of the Fabled Canelands and is one of Lexington's finest songwriters. Americana, folk, and New Orleans blues brimming with honest beauty.

Thursday Mar 27th @ 8pm Appleseed Collective: with John Davis & Friends
Appleseed Collective: with John Davis & Friends Jazz::Bluegrass::Swing
Mix the Hot Club of Paris with the sweaty soul of Dixieland, a couple blades of bluegrass, a pinch of ragtime beat, and a western swinging swagger and you've just conjured the sound of The Appleseed Collective. Formed in 2010, The Appleseed Collective has become a force of nature driven by their local community and developed by a strong sense of do-it-yourself drive. In an age of corporations and climate change, the band's commitment to buying & selling local, eating from gardens, and being their own bosses has led to the kind of success that feels simply organic.
"The blends of swing, bluegrass, Dixieland ditties and alluring gypsy-folk whirls - is something close to a transcendent listen ... you're there, on some dirt road, being led on by these songs," raves Jeff Milo of iSpy Magazine.
Listen to the Appleseed Collective live

Opening Act: John Davis & Friends- John is a local music educator and Django Reinhardt enthusiast. Specializing in electric bass, his unconventional approach to swing jazz makes for a righteous groove! John will feature a number of special guests throughout the night including Johnathan Daniels (formerly of Tango Mangos).

Saturday Mar 29th @ 9pm Tim & Myles Thompson: with Endless Road Strings
Tim & Myles Thompson: with Endless Road Strings Guitar::Acoustic::Americana
Tim Thompson is the 2008 International Fingerstyle Guitar Champion and has become one of the most acclaimed fingerpickers on the scene, in Nashville and the world. Thompson's teen-aged son Myles, with his lyrical, mature tone and masterful-beyond-his years jazz chops--has been increasingly sharing the stage with his father.
The Thompson duo present a dazzling display of complex, intricate jazz phrasing that brings to mind the music of such masters as Chet Atkins, Django Reinhardt, Chick Corea, New Grass Revival and more. They have a one-of-a-kind combination of improvisational jazz, traditional folk, singer-songwriter, country, rock and world music.
A father-and-son act unlike any other, Tim and Myles Thompson stand at the new century's vanguard of frets-and-strings Americana.
