Winter Wind Concert - Ryanhood

buy tickets 

The acoustic-duo, Ryanhood, featuring Cameron Hood’s rich and folky lead vocals and Ryan Green’s explosive guitar and mandolin riffs, together with their airtight vocal harmonies, prompted the Arizona Daily Star to call them, “a match made in radio heaven.” Ryanhood was named ‘Best Group/Duo’ in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards and they were recently named the “Discovery of the Year” by John Platt at WFUV New York City. They were a featured act at Australia’s National Folk Festival in April 2018. And their star is still on the rise. Their sixth and newest album, Yearbook, is led by their signature two-part vocal harmonies, decorated with flares of guitar, ukulele, and mandolin, and centers on songs about being young, growing old, and making peace with the passing of time.

Winter Wind Concert - Seth Glier

Sunday, February 24, 2019, 7:00pm @ The Depot

buy tickets 

Seth Glier’s fifth album, Birds, is the latest entry in a burgeoning career that has included a Grammy nomination and a pair of Independent Music Awards while touring with artists including Ani DiFranco and Ryan Adams. The songs on Birds range from personal to political, and are bound together by the awareness that our world is a fragile place that is all the more magical for it. Glier (pronounced “Gleer”) recorded Birds in an airy loft in western Massachusetts outfitted with a grand piano and floor-to-ceiling windows. Birds roosting just outside those windows, became his sympathetic audience while Glier made the album. “I felt a tremendous amount of comfort talking to the Birds,” he says “I’d check in with them regularly to see how they thought things were going so far.” Seth Glier was selected as the Member’s Choice Concert for Winter Wind by vote of Depot Members.

Winter Wind Concert - The Brother Brothers

Sunday, March 10, 2019, 7:00pm @ The Depot

buy tickets 

“The Brother Brothers have been in this together for life, and their familial connection comes through in the music, harkening back to some of the greatest family harmonies ever made. They tour as an acoustic duo: David on cello and guitar, and Adam on the 5-string fiddle. With individual storied music careers under their belts, the brothers have finally teamed up to bring their experiences together. They approach their poignant and often charming songs with an almost startling sense of ease, and the tight harmonies are enough to send shivers down anyone’s spine. Often leaning towards the darker, moody elements of Appalachian folk, and bluegrass traditions, their songs are laden with near perfect sibling harmonies or unison singing, compelling writing, and imaginative arrangements.
