Eleanor Underhill and Friends

Join us at the Sierra Nevada Taproom in Mills River on Saturday, October 10th from 2pm to 5pm for a free show with Eleanor Underhill and Friends. Also check out her most recent solo record “Navigate the Madness” just released.

Eleanor Underhill & Friends banded together in 2014 to create music that would entertain the dancer and the listener alike. With genre-bending grooves, thoughtful original compositions, and cover songs you would never expect from a banjo-fronted band, they create a sound that blends elements of Americana, world, pop, jazz, reggae, and acoustic rock. Unafraid to launch from Radiohead’s Creep into TLC’s Creep and back again, Eleanor Underhill and Friends thrives on experimentation and boundary-pushing.

Eleanor Underhill, singer, songwriter, and banjo player, is best known from her work with Americana-folk group Underhill Rose. Christopher Chappell Pyle, drummer and percussionist, toured the world over with Royal Trucks, Soulgrass Rebellion, The Get Right Band and most recently The Artimus Pyle Band and Chappell. Zack Page is a mainstay in the Asheville music scene, lending his upright bass talents to The Page Brothers, One Leg Up, regional jazz jams, and countless other notable acts. Eleanor Underhill and Friends features guests from the Asheville music scene at most shows, so you never know what surprises await.

Formed initially as an experiment in diverse songwriting, Rare Creatures has grown into a full on rock spectacle. Their sound navigates between heavy synth rock and melodic acoustic rhythms seamlessly from song to song, switching it up around every corner. Influenced by bands from Alt-J to King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, with some ethnic spices sprinkled in for good measure.

Nick Dittmeier & the Sawdusters

Join us at the Sierra Nevada Taproom in Mills River on Saturday, October 27th from 2pm to 5pm for a free show with Nick Dittmeier & the Sawdusters.

A four piece Americana band from Bloomington, IN. They’ve released two EPs, “Extra Better” in 2013, and then “Light of Day” in 2014.Through relentless touring, they’ve become mainstays of the Midwest Americana scene. In September of 2015, they set ten highway-tested, fine-tuned songs loose in the confines of LA LA Land Studios. The result is “Midwest Heart/Southern Blues”. This album is a gritty, upbeat collection of songs, full of characters who were developed while staring over the dash of a beat up Ford van cruising through towns in the South and Midwest, whose better days are behind them.

For fans of The Band, Little Feat, and the Turnpike Troubadours.
