American songwriter Tim Easton was born on the Canadian border in upstate New York and spent time living in Japan and Akron, Ohio. He has developed his own songwriting style – folk based storytelling and personal traveling tales, often peppered with bold confessions or “tell it as it is” reality. Rolling Stone Magazine praised him as “having a novelist’s sense of humanity.”

Hill Spirits + Vinyl and Gin Release Party
HILL SPIRITS are an energetic folk quintet from the fabled hills of southern Ohio. While at some points boisterously uplifting and at other times stirringly mystical, Hill Spirits have become known for their passionate energetics and wholesale love for lifting their voices in song together. Based in Athens, Ohio, the group has forged deep musical bonds over the course of a decade in a multitude of musical projects ranging in sound from psychedelic rock to acoustic to neo-soul, eventually finding home in the Appalachian folk modes of their forebearers.
Join us for the joint launch party of the long-awaited Hill Spirits album on vinyl, as well as Hill Spirits Elder Gin, a collaboration of United Plant Savers and Athens West End Distillery.
Introducing Hill Spirits Elder Gin, an Elderflower, Red Cedar, & American Ginseng Gin distilled by Athens West End Distillery with a botanical bill sourced entirely from the UPS Botanical Sanctuary, the proceeds of which will go to support its noble mission of American Ginseng preservation.
When: July 30th, 7:00PM

“Angela Perley has been gigging nonstop with her band The Howlin’ Moons since they released their debut album in 2014, laying down an interesting mix of folk, Americana, and ’60s-tinged psychedelic rock that floats seamlessly between Bob Dylan and Procol Harum, sometimes within the same song.”— No Depression. All of this has led up to Perley’s forthcoming LP, ‘4:30’ (released Aug. 2, 2019), her first solo effort which she co-produced with longtime guitarist and collaborator, Chris Connor. Her third full-length record illustrates the songwriter’s knack for deft storytelling, warm vocal layers and disarming melodies that beget personal growth and mobility, surging from raw and far-sighted pathos.

Sally & George
Like pink rock Peter Pan and bass-welding Tinker Bell, Nashville folk rock duo Sally & George have always resisted society’s push to “grow up”, and together cultivated a life of movement, freedom, adventure, and artistic independence. As married musicians, they found in each other what previous bands had failed to provide, a musical home with no boundaries, and their new album Take You on a Ride shows their ability to grow and change together. On their sophomore release, the effervescent pair journeys through treacherous landscapes of a pain and love.
When: September 17th, 7:00PM
