Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters
Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters are on tour with their latest album, a self-titled disc released June 9, 2017 on Organic Records. Lyrically driven, the songs of Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters blend the band’s old-school country roots attitude with their shared influences of rock and folk. Amanda says of the album, “I think it’s just about life and all that that entails. Including but not limited to death, strangers, birthdays, money, leaving, arriving, seasons, corruption, and love.”
Jim Avett’s shows are a combination of beloved country tunes, original ballads, and the stories he tells to introduce them. One comes away from a Jim Avett performance with the feeling that this is an honest man sharing his life and his love of music. It’s like spending the evening on the front porch singing and talking with a good friend.
Joey Fortner & the Universal Sound
For the past decade, Joey Fortner ran around the Southeast in the role of a banjo-playing side man. Slowly, though, he eased away from the banjo and up to the mic, guitar in hand and backed by a new band of western North Carolina music veterans and good friends. The “Universal Sound” encompasses the ideas in Joey’s musical mind, blending Americana, Bluegrass and a touch of Rock N Roll.
