Greg Humphreys Electric Trio
Following a string of acoustic solo albums, longtime Dillon Fence and Hobex frontman Greg Humphreys returns to the bandstand. Humphreys' new Electric Trio features bassist Matt Brandau and drummer Keith Robinson. The Brooklyn-via-NC artist says "it feels great to be playing electric guitar again. I'm using all the tools in the shed with this combo." Following a recording session with Stax soul legend William Bell, Humphreys reconvenes the Electric Trio for tourdates supporting two new releases, the Cosmic Irony EP and the Rock at Live Wood LP.
"Greg Humphreys is a perennial pleasure, an ever-blooming example of what dedication to one's art and a fierce resistance to abandoning exposed heart and simple, sincere emotion can produce." – Dennis Cook, Dirty Impound
"Humphreys' craftsmanship and effortlessly endearing voice are still striking." – Chris Parker, INDYweek
The Junaluska Gospel Choir
Boone's Junaluska Gospel Choir has long been one of the High Country's most celebrated musical ensembles. Performing each Sunday morning at the Mennonite Brethren Church (located in the town's historic Junaluska community), the choir's uplifting, energetic brand of black gospel features elements of soul, rock, R&B, country and more. In addition to playing churches throughout the region, the Junaluska Gospel Choir has performed at MerleFest and released a new album entitled Rough Side Of The Mountain in 2014.
