Rock House Concert featuring Ordinary Elephant

The Rock House, 41 High Street, Reeds Spring

Join us for an intimate night of music. Doors open at 6:30 for a potluck dinner, b.y.o.b. social time.

Music begins at 8:00 for the listening room concert. First come, first serve on seating. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online at https://rockhousecenterforthearts.org/calendar-tickets or at the door.

Ordinary Elephant is International Folk Music Awards 2017 Artist of the Year Ordinary Elephant captivates listeners with their well-honed combination of insightful writing, effortless harmonies and intertwined clawhammer banjo and guitar. The collaboration of husband and wife, their connection, and their influences (such as Gillian Welch, Guy Clark, Anais Mitchell) all meet on stage. You see it, hear it, and then you find yourself truly feeling it. “As genuine as it gets” says legendary Texas producer Lloyd Maines. Crystal and Pete Damore have been performing together since 2011, when they called Texas home. The two took to full-time nomadic life with their dogs in 2014, and are still finding home and music wherever they go. The duo was both a Kerrville New Folk Finalist and Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist in 2017, and their release ‘Before I Go’ was No. 7 on the Folk DJ Chart for that year.

Rock House Concert featuring Willi Carlisle

The Rock House, 41 High Street, Reeds Spring

Join us for an intimate night of music. Doors open at 6:30 for a potluck dinner, b.y.o.b. social time.

Music begins at 8:00 for the listening room concert. Willi Carlisle is the raconteur and folksinger you don’t know about yet. In just two years of touring, The Washington Post has said he is “powerful” and “worth seeking out.” Twin Cities Pioneer calls him “impressive on banjo, accordion, and fiddle.” In Cincinnati, a reviewer said his songs and stories “turn the cliche of solo performance on their head.” With a varied and exuberant program of folksongs, stories, and original stomps and croons, Willi has performed internationally with talent like grammy-nominated Mary Gauthier, Los Texmaniacs, Alaska’s Ken Waldman, Shawn James, and Kelly Hunt. www.willicarlisle.com

Rock House Concert featuring Randall Shreve is SOLD OUT

The Rock House, 41 High Street, Reeds Spring

Randall Shreve brings his own wine-soaked flavor of indie rock to audiences around the country. His music, which has been described as “Vaudeville Rock,” derives its unmistakable sound from influences such as Queen, Muse, The Beatles, and Jeff Buckley, but plays them against the dark and sultry backdrop of cabaret. While the rock is thoroughly modern, it exudes the ambition, grit and glamour of Old Hollywood, and manages to transport the listener back in time to an earlier era. Fans have come to expect not only exceptional musicianship from his live shows, but a unique entertainment experience. They never leave disappointed.
