Threadbare is a solo project dedicated to simple, bittersweet songs worn down to a thin comfort. Major influences are artists such as Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, David Wilcox, and Gregory Alan Isakov. Come share an intimate evening introducing Threadbare’s debut EP with his friends Brooke & Nick and perhaps, a surprise special guest.
Threadbare · 7:00PM
Threadbare (Ben Mackel) grew up near Asheville, NC and is also a member of the harmony driven trio, The Blue Eyed Bettys. Apart from his high energy shows with The Bettys, this solo project gives Ben a chance to delve further into his love of simple, bittersweet songs that are prone to pulling your heartstrings. The name Threadbare is derived from the minimalistic lyrics and simple melodies being weathered and woven into a fabric just strong enough to make a song that's full of sentiment and comfort - much like your favorite hoodie.
Brooke & Nick · 7:00PM
Brooke & Nick are a American-Folk duo based in Asheville, North Carolina. Brooke plays cello and sings alongside front man, Nick, who also sings, plays baritone ukelele, and foot percussion.
Both Brooke and Nick grew up immersed in music. Nick hailing from a folk background, brings heartfelt tones and harmonies that tug at audience members hearts. Brooke’s more impressionist and classical background meshes beautifully to offer listeners vibrant harmonies, eclectic compositions, and an originative sound to any cover.
The couple met on the sandbar of Ocracoke Island, NC in 2010, and began playing at the Ocrafolk Opry summer of 2016. Since then, they’ve played at various listening rooms, restaurants, and weddings throughout the state of North Carolina. Most of their repertoire consists of a broad range of covers; they also have several originals they perform as well.
