Barrel Room Concert – Songwriters Encore!

Host Kris Ferris

 

Come enjoy some wine & live music by the best of our local songwriting talent! Kris Ferris hosts this performance melange, with each singer/songwriter performing his or her songs in the round. They will also take you behind the scenes and learn what inspires their compositions, the stories behind the songs and the process of song writing through each songwriter’s eyes and experience. It is an interactive event and audience participation is encouraged (but please be respectful and don’t converse with your neighbor while the artists are speaking or singing).

Our Barrel Room Concert this evening is a Songwriter Encore!  We loved the combination of four of our previously featured songwriters (from our June Songwriter Sunday concert) so much that we wanted to offer up the magic to folks preferring an evening event.   So if you missed them the first time (or just want to see these talented artists again), we suggest you purchase tickets in advance (we recommend in advance because our Barrel Room Seating is limited and it may sell out… see below for online ticket option, or call 336-644-9908).

Songwriters featured:

Brad Reaves

 

Brad Reaves  – Add expressive words to vibrating air and a song emerges. Inspired by the 1960s British invasion Brad Reaves’ list resonates with the maturity of diverse experience. A journeyman musician his songs, vocal prowess and instrumental chops showcase his love for the art form as he shares a ramble through the good, good, good, good vibrations.

 

 

Laura Jane Vincent

Laura is a professional performer, multi instrumentalist, singer songwriter. She writes ballads of strength, loss, and triumph, features folk tales of those who should know better but just simply can’t help themselves. She performs hundreds of concerts and shows every year. She now lives in southeastern North Carolina in a 200 year old farmhouse with her bandmate and husband, drummer Dave Tippetts

 

Jack Gorham is a junkman/songwriter-it says so on his business card.  When he’s not rummaging through someone’s attic he can be found playing keys in bands such as Shaken and Stirred, Stained Glass Canoe and the El Dorados.  Gorham’s songs shed light on ideas about time, place, love and the human condition.  They are loaded with imagery and metaphor and delivered by engaging melodies and thoughtful piano accompaniment.

 

Sarah Sophia

Sarah Sophia is a 21 year old Folk/Americana Singer-Songwriter. She grew up in Hopewell, a small town in central New Jersey, and is now based out of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Sarah’s musical influences range through many different genres giving her original music a whole new sound and feel of its own. Some of her main influences include Joni Mitchell, Fleetwood Mac, Grace Potter, Kacey Musgraves and Jason Isbell.   Sarah is a solo acoustic performer. She preforms at many local, North Carolina venues ranging from cafes to small bars. Sarah has also booked many Singer-Songwriter rounds in Nashville, Tennessee.  Sarah recently released her first EP that she worked on with local Winston- Salem producer John Pfiffner.
