An evening of heart-stirring melody and evocative lyrics about love, loss, and home from Asheville songwriter Hannah Kaminer and Bristol troubadour JP Parsons.

Hannah Kaminer


Hannah Kaminer is a folk/Americana artist based in Asheville, NC. Raised in small towns in western North Carolina, she fuses echoes of Appalachian traditions with wistful, Americana-style songwriting. Her yearning voice and silvery melodies are a haunting pairing with gutwrenching lyrics about love, loss, and home.

Her second studio album, “Heavy Magnolias,” was released in March 2018, supported by a Regional Artist Project Grant and a successful Kickstarter campaign. Collaborating with the members of her band, Heartbreak Highlight Reel, Kaminer co-produced the album with GRAMMY-award winning engineer Julian Dreyer of Echo Mountain Studios. Kaminer has been described as “a folk singer with a voice like few others” (Mountain Xpress), “among the region’s bright young voices” (Blue Ridge Public Radio), and as having a “crystalline voice, with just a touch of Appalachian lilt” (Bill Kopp, Mountain Xpress).

JP Parsons


Critically acclaimed Singer/Songwriter and Radio Bristol host JP Parsons makes his Asheville, NC solo debut December 19th.

Blending folk, bluegrass, americana, and roots music, East Tennessee luminary JP Parsons has been received as a regional songwriting sensation throughout the Southeast. Either performing as a solo artist or with The American Bandwagon, his songs are immediately familiar. From large festivals to the tiniest of bars and listening rooms, this is definitely one bandwagon worth joining.
