Beth Bombara with Samuel Gregg
February 12 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$15 – $20
Although based in Missouri, Bombara has spent much of her adulthood on the road, carving out her own award-winning mix of contemporary folk and electric heartland-rock. She’s been a solo artist, a bandleader, and an occasional side musician for other artists. Her work has garnered high praise from L.A. Weekly, No Depression, BBC Radio and more.
“Part Shannon McNally, and part Chrissie Hynde, she digs into her songs with determination and bittersweet honesty.” -American Songwriter Magazine
Ultimately, her songs shine through whether presented in an intimate setting with an acoustic guitar, or on a bigger stage with her full backing band. Expect to hear brand new songs, as well as some old favorites.
While Samuel Gregg cuts an enviable figure as a sideman — serving as a gun-for-hire for well over a decade, he’s stepping further into center stage with the release of his second solo album.
Gregg’s experiences growing up in Cape Girardeau County— singing in high school choirs, singing religious hymns at home with his family — lay a firm foundation to build upon. Add to that a handful of years living in Nashville, and now, calling the low country of South Carolina home, he’s drawn upon a widening sonic palette.
“My early experiences with music fall under the old-timey music umbrella — playing guitar and harmonica with my dad and grandpa,” he says. “There were a lot of folkified hymns; it was not quite bluegrass and not quite folk. I think that’s stylistically where some of my songs come from. Growing up, music was a communal experience. All these years later, that hasn’t changed much.”
