Description

Join us on Saturday, March 30th as we welcome David Childers, Shay Martin Lovette, and Earleine to the 1915 for a night of original songs performed "In The Round." Doors will open at 6:30 with the show starting at 7:30. The Artisan Cafe will also be open for the show to serve coffee, drinks, beer, wine and handcrafted food.

David Childers:
Mount Holly, North Carolina — Singer-songwriter David Childers is the proverbial study in contradictions. A resident of Mount Holly, North Carolina, he’s a former high-school football player with the aw-shucks demeanor of a good ol’ Southern boy. But he’s also a well-read poet and painter who cites Chaucer and Kerouac as influences, fell in love with folk as a teen, listens to jazz and opera, and fed his family by practicing law before turning in his license to concentrate on his creative passions.
The legal profession’s loss is certainly the music world’s gain. Childers’ new album, Run Skeleton Run, released May 5, 2017 on Ramseur Records, is filled with the kinds of songs that have made him a favorite of fans and fellow artists including neighbors the Avett Brothers. Scott Avett contributes to four tracks, and Avetts bassist Bob Crawford co-executive-produced the effort with label head Dolph Ramseur. (Crawford and Childers, both history buffs, have recorded and performed together in the Overmountain Men). David also recently joined the Avetts on stage at their New Year's Eve concert in Charlotte, NC to perform his song, "The Prettiest Thing."

Shay Martin Lovette:
Boone, NC based songwriter and musician, Shay Martin Lovette has been honing his craft on tour in support of his latest album 'Swifter Drifter' since it's release in the summer of 2018. His homespun folk-rock and americana songs are beginning to make waves across the southeast and beyond and even in Europe where the Berlin, Germany based new folk music curator and playlister, Songpickr selected 'Swift Drifter' as one of his top albums of 2018. The album was also recently voted #61 on WNCW Public Radio's top 100 albums of 2018. Lovette plans to continue to tour relentlessly and record his follow up to 'Swift Drifter' in 2019.

Earleine:
Born in Clarksville, Tennessee, just 40 miles outside of Nashville, Earleine grew up immersed in musical culture. At 18 she picked up the guitar, and soon began writing her own songs. Earleine made her way to the Blue Ridge mountains in the Spring of 2016 to expand her musical horizons. Genuine and shockingly honest, her songwriting is mixed with poetic lyricism, and dreamy harmonies that seem to lift hard time memories into ephemeral realms. Earleine's style is Americana music with a swirl of folk, rock, and roots under a blanket of soul.
