September 17th, 11am-2pm: Farewell Friend
Farewell Friend is a folk rock band based in Greensboro, North Carolina. The band consists of Tom Troyer (guitar, vocals), Aaron Cummings (drums), Mark Byerly (electric guitar, resonator, pedal steel), Evan Campfield (upright bass), and occasionally includes musician Caleb Baer (mandolin, violin, viola). Farewell Friend’s music is first and foremost an exploration of poetry, narrative, and storytelling. Their sound is a delicate avalanche of sonic texture and a presentation of recognizable and distorted folk and Americana forms. Their latest album [SAMSON] is an autobiographical exploration of Troyer's childhood growing up as the son of a small town preacher in rural Indiana, feelings of being an outsider in the South, and the lonely disappointments of his twenties. The album is cathartic shadow work explored through up front vocals and acoustic instruments while introducing raw electric textures, modern synth, and minimal percussion. If the Samson of the Old Testament is a cautionary tale, this album is a knowing nod at the hazard lights and an echo of the fog horn before the hurricane. With the release of their sophomore album in the Summer of 2019 "Glenwood and Gomorrah," Troyer established himself as producer and audio engineer mixing and mastering the entire album in a small bedroom in his former home in the Glenwood neighborhood. This album is both a question and a prayer for the neighborhood he grew up in, cataloging his personal relationships with neighbors during a time of swift gentrification.
September 24th, 11am-2pm: Wake Moody
Wake Moody is an R&B/pop-rock musician who plays soulful, feel-good music in the vein of Earth Wind and Fire, Daniel Caesar, Lianne la Havas, John Mayer, and Bill Withers. He released his debut EP Shivers in 2019 and has played venues ranging from the NC State Fair to Eno River Festival, Cat’s Cradle, and more. “My childhood was sound-tracked by my parents’ favorite R&B, classic rock and soul records,” he explains, an influence apparent in his band’s soulful live shows, featuring hypnotic grooves and three-part harmonies.
