Live Music - Groovement

Groovement is a 6-piece funk-rock band that embodies the soul of Northwest Arkansas – fun, unpredictable, and full of life. Currently the band is touring the U.S. in support of their highly anticipated second album, "Clouds." 

Groovement sounds like a Led Zeppelin collided into a Soul Train in front of the Saint Motel; more easily described as: high-energy funk-rock. Their catchy melodies, big harmonies, tasteful solos, and funky grooves easily create songs you can dance to. Deitra Magazine describes Groovement's music as "a surprising find of funky original tunes that got the crowd boogying out of their seats, as well as some unique renditions of unexpected covers."

Winter Wind Concert - Harpeth Rising

Unapologetic genre-benders, Harpeth Rising fuses Folk, Newgrass, Rock and Classical into something organically unique. These are three classically trained musicians playing original music, as intricately arranged as a string quartet, lyrically rooted in the singer/songwriter tradition, and wrapped in three part vocal harmonies reminiscent of both Appalachia and Medieval Europe. Harpeth Rising’s sophomore album as a trio, Against All Tides, is proof that authenticity and complexity can live in harmony. The songs crafted lyrically by Jordana Greenberg and arranged together with Maria Di Meglio and Michelle Younger, the other trio members, are the vehicle by which the band has chosen to add their voices to an ongoing fight for understanding and respect.

Winter Wind & Jazz in June Concert - Kyle Reid

Kyle Reid leads the Low Swingin' Chariots playing tunes that draw from New Orleans, Gypsy Jazz, and Western Swing traditions. The group was chosen as “Winter Wind Members Choice” by vote of the Depot members. Reid's original tunes sound at once familiar yet new and exciting, blending elements of these classic American forms with contemporary attitude. The low sonorous quality of Reid's voice is well balanced by the hot accents of the rhythm section and the sweet melodies of the brass section.

Winter Wind Concert - Carter Sampson

Carter Sampson is an Okie-born singer/songwriter with a big voice. Her journey as a naturally independent, free-spirited musician has seemed almost predestined at times. At age 15 she began experimenting with sound as a way to pass the time; now her creativity has matured into the dedicated and passionate performance that makes her a favorite female vocalist. As a relatable artist, her empowering music appeals to a wide range of folks, who are incredibly and admirably loyal to her and her work. Carter averages about 220 shows annually – in areas like Oklahoma and Arkansas, as well as Colorado, New Mexico and Texas. But as the self-penned ‘Queen of Oklahoma,’ Sampson’s red boots are happiest when they’re on her home turf.

Winter Wind Concert - The Honey Dewdrops

Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish share more than most couples. As the Honey Dewdrops, they share stages from venues to festivals across North America, stretches of rolling, infinite roadway, and a lot of songs; they share one mic and a hunger to pay attention to what endures. This hunger to explore and document is evident in their 2012 release Silver Lining, a Top Ten record on national Folk and Americana stations. With tight harmonies and an musical ensemble that includes clawhammer banjo, mandolin and guitars, the effect is to leave listeners with only what matters: the heart of the song and clarity over ornamentation.

Winter Wind Concert - Ellis Paul

Some artists document their lives through their music. Others chronicle their times. It’s a rare artist who can do both, telling their own story through songs that also encapsulate the essence of people and places who have helped define their era overall. Ellis Paul is one of those gifted singer/songwriters. Though some may refer to him as a folksinger, he is more, for lack of a better word, a singular storyteller, a musician whose words reach out from inside and yet also express the feelings, thoughts and sensibilities that most people can relate to in one way or another, regardless of age or upbringing.

Winter Wind Concert - Goodnight Moonshine

Goodnight Moonshine is Molly Venter's latest musical project, a collaboration with her husband Eben Pariser. Co-writing often, Eben and Molly explore what it means to be in an authentic relationship, singing of joy and grief in equal measure. Molly's voice bends from a sweet moan to a gritty shout and back into a playful run in the space of a few bars and "it all goes down like silk," writes American Songwriter Magazine; "few singers turn first time listeners into eternal fanatics as effortlessly as Molly Venter." The emotional potency of her voice is surrounded and supported by a lush landscape of harmonies and minimalist orchestrations conceived by Eben on vocals and electric guitar.
