Weekend run + “Blood Ridge”

Hello folks. Adam here. These are troubling times around the world, but I hope you’re making the best of this summer. In non-music news, I wrapped my role in what I’m sure will be an excellent indie film today, “Blood Ridge”. Visit the film’s facebook page to follow progress on post-production, festival screenings, and more. (See pic below!)

On the music front: Archer’s Arrow is finished and sounds great. Look for release info in the coming months. And.. a few duo shows this weekend in the south. If you’re close, come on by:

FRI JULY 25th- The Evening Muse- Charlotte, NC (8pm sharp!)
w/ Adron and Emily Lynch
SAT JULY 26th- Wolf Hills Brewery- Abingdon, VA (5pm)

AthFest & Archer’s Arrow!

Got two shows next weekend for AthFest- playing with The Wild Fires plus the Malian ‘Mande’ band, Lassine Kouyate. Info below..

In other news, Archer’s Arrow, the album originally recorded backed by members of Nutria (now playing in The Eskimos), has been mixed by the mighty Bronson Tew at Dial Back Sound in Mississippi. Members of Jimbo Mathus‘ Tri-State Coalition stopped in to add some majestic sounds. Look out for details on the release as it comes together. We’d say it’s rockin and beautiful.


It’s summertime.. go outside!

Green Room tomorrow!

Join us for an excellent Tuesday night bill at Green Room in Athens tomorrow, May 20th. With Oklahoma’s great John Moreland and Athens’ own Jeremy Wheatley (Crooked Fingers, Ruby the Rabbitfoot) playing as Sailors & Ship. Hammond goodness assured.
