Rescheduled! Our show at Greenfield Lake Amphitheater in Wilimington, NC has been moved to Sunday, November 11th. New door times are 5 pm. Due to today's forecast, we have decided it would make the most sense to move this show and hope for better weather. Tickets for the original date are valid for the new one. Refunds are available at the point of purchase. If you bought tickets online, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request one. Fireside Collective will still be the opener. We are sorry for the inconvenience, and hope that you will join us for a beautiful Sunday at the Lake on November 11th!
On November 9th, the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra will be releasing their album entitled AMERICAN ORIGINALS: 1918 live album, and we could not be more honored to be asked to join them on the project. Other special guests on the album include Rhiannon Giddens, Pokey LaFarge, and tap-dancer Robyn Watson.
The live recording is inspired by America’s cultural awakening at the end of the First World War one hundred years ago and the distinctly American musical styles that reflect the country’s diversity.
Included on the album are renditions of Over There, God Bless America, Swing Along, Memphis Blues, I’m Just Wild About Harry, How Ya Gonna Keep ’em Down on the Farm, I Ain’t Got Nobody, and MORE.
Please check out our video of How Ya Gonna Keep ‘em Down on the Farm below.

“I don’t think there’s a show that I’ve ever been more excited about. The band, the production, the feeling is getting better and better every show these days. Music really is our joy and we can’t wait to come home and share it. Not to mention how much I love Hiss Golden Messenger! We’ve got some new songs that are feeling great, and we can’t wait to celebrate Asheville-style.” - Graham Sharp
