VADEN LANDERS — the Yodelin’ Country Bluesman himself — is bringing the party back to @jackofthewood this FRI NIGHT 6/14!

Landers is a multi-instumentalist & singer-songwriter hailing from eastern Tennessee who blends influences from honky tonk, hillbilly, folk, blues, ragtime, jazz, western swing and old-time Appalachian to bring new fire to a classic sound!

As a teen, he set out traveling the American highways & railways, learning the ways of a traveler-musician while honing his songwriting, singing, yodeling & picking skills busking & touring from Alaska to Florida.

Landers’ original songs harken back to the golden days of country music and, with a voice that draws comparison to Hank Sr., he continues to turn heads as an exciting new player in the revival of the traditional country music scene.

$10 at the door, show starts at 9pm — get here early to grab a table & some tasty dinner and festive beverages. Don’t forget your cowboy boots! 🤠

We’re excited to host Nashville’s MP GANNON’s rocking’ premier performance at @jackofthewood this SAT 6/8 at 9pm!

MP Gannon is a slide guitarist, singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist steeped in the tradition of the 60s and 70s singer-songwriter movement.

Charlotte’s THE LOCAL BOYS are bringing their unique bluegrass & Americana sounds back to @jackofthewood this FRIDAY 6/7 at 9pm!

Over their 20-year history, The Local Boys have embraced the many deep roots of traditional music, from old-time to bluegrass to country to rock ’n’ roll. 

Performing across the country at iconic events including Merlefest & the Brushy Mountain Apple Festival, they released their first original album, “Stories” in 2022.

BLUEGRASS TODAY says “The Local Boys create a sound infused with confidence and credibility” and their debut album “comes across as a bold and occasionally brash set of songs that underscore [the band’s] homage to tradition, and their ability to interpret it their own relentless way” with music that “is solid, synched, and sturdy”.
