The Page Brothers

Amphitheater Stage at the Taproom at Sierra Nevada, Mills River, NC from 2pm to 5pm - Free Show

The Page Brothers are co-led by guitarist Andy Page and bassist Zack Page. Utilizing a rotating line-up of the finest musicians in Western NC, the group keeps a busy performance schedule in the Southeast. Performing together for over 30 years, the twins’ music-making has brought them to all 50 U.S. states, Canada, Europe, Japan, Australia, and South America. Collectively they have had the good fortune to perform with notable jazz artists such as Phil Woods, Tony Monaco, Billy Higgins, Delfeayo Marsalis, Babik Reinhardt and many others.
After a successful appearance at Sierra Nevada earlier this year, The Page Brothers return with an amazing band featuring the talents of drummer Jeff Sipe and keyboardist Mike Runyon, and will draw from the catalog of jazz-rock/fusion pioneers. Expect several tunes from Jeff Beck’s iconic “Blow by Blow” album and music by Pat Metheny, John Scofield, Chick Corea, Michael Brecker, Kurt Rosenwinkel, and John McLaughlin as well as originals by Page and Runyon.
Acclaimed drummer Jeff Sipe has performed extensively with a wide array of artists including Col. Bruce Hampton, Jimmy Herring, Leftover Salmon, Jeff Coffin, Keller Williams, Warren Haynes and many others. Widely recognized for his drumming proficiency in multiple styles, Sipe brings his technical virtuosity, a solid groove, and creative flair to every playing opportunity.
Keyboardist Mike Runyon performs regularly throughout the region with Metaphonia, the Broadcast, Magnus and others. Runyon has performed some of the most demanding repertoire in the classical idiom and combines his knowledge of rock, jazz and other styles into a unique voice for composing and performance.

Dangermuffin

Taproom at Sierra Nevada, Mills River, NC from 7pm to 9:30pm - Free Show

Charleston, SC’s Dangermuffin is an eclectic quartet that weaves lyrical themes of sea, sun, and spiritual connection with Americana, Island influenced, Folk and Jam grooves. The band’s live show swims between tasty acoustic, and rockin’ electric sounds.

On the band’s 6th and latest release, ‘Heritage,’ Dangermuffin reaches into their creative arsenal to craft an album showcasing the band’s signature coastal-influenced grooves mixed with Americana sensibilities and Appalachian fingerpicking. The album’s lyrics contemplate the universal human connection to our ancestors, ancient traditions and symbols while yearning for humanity to get back to its roots. It is an audible showcase weaving introspective lyrics with catchy, nimble guitar riffs. Fittingly, the album’s soaring vocals were recorded in Charleston’s historic Unitarian Church, a National Historic Landmark built in 1772.

About Y La Bamba

Luz Elena Mendoza returns to themes of searching, metamorphosis, shared humanity, and a faith that is greater than just religion. Born in San Francisco as a first generation daughter of immigrant parents from Michoacan Mexico, she spent her childhood raised by the melodies and stories that were being told through traditional Mexican folk songs. From the intimate, contemplative verses in her native-language, to the revelations of the history in her roots, her story is delivered with poise. Mendoza finds the intricate space between creation and growth to keep her poetic expression emotionally raw and ever evolving. These songs are a soundtrack built for coming to grips with, not just one’s own mortality, but the fragility of the world, presenting sounds that carry the realness of ancestral trauma and the search of identity.

About Bob Schneider

One of Austin’s most celebrated musicians, Bob Schneider, is set to release his new album, Blood and Bones - his 7th studio album since his 2001 solo debut Lonelyland - on June 8th via his Shockorama Records imprint. Blood and Bones captures Schneider at a unique, and distinct, place. “Most of the songs are about this phase of my life,” he admits. “I’m re-married, I have a 2-year-old baby daughter who was born over two months premature because my wife had life threatening preeclampsia. So dealing with that traumatic event while getting older and looking at death in a realistic, matter of fact way, experiencing the most joy I’ve ever experienced along with feelings of utter despondency in a way that would have been impossible to experience earlier in my life, all comes out in the songs.”

Schneider performs relentlessly, creates new music compulsively, writes poetry, and regularly shows his visual art in galleries around Austin. With Blood and Bones, Schneider further cements his reputation as one of the most versatile, inventive, and engaging songwriters working today.
