Lauren Midgley tells us that “In ancient celtic heritage, the veil between this world and the eternal is said to be only three feet apart, also tells of places where the veil between these worlds is more narrow.  This is ‘a thin place’ where truth abides, both beautiful and violent.” Midgley utilizes photography as a means to seek out these thin places through exercises of deepened creativity.  Aiming to create a place for conversation around intersections of art, mental health, and the spiritual life, she employs advanced digital manipulation techniques to produce art that ignites wonder, explores hard questions and offers a safe space to acknowledge the heart collectively.

buy tickets

The Texas songwriter tradition casts a long shadow today, and Austin-based Americana roots juggernauts Wood & Wire could easily rattle off a long list of songwriters that inspire them from Willie Nelson to James McMurtry, and everyone in between.

Respect for honest labor is a central theme in Wood & Wire’s 2018 GRAMMY Nominated album for “Best Bluegrass”, North of Despair ( Blue Corn Music), with songs populated by people like songwriter Tony Kamel’s own grandfather, who built the family’s hunting lodge in Llano, Texas with his own two hands. The characters on the album live large, and aren’t afraid to share their opinions about the modern world.

Peter Bradley Adams introduced himself as a member of Eastmountainsouth, the duo he put together with fellow songwriter and vocalist Kat Maslich-Bode. The demos the duo made, produced by Adams, blended pop and folk with subtle electronic touches, making it a pioneering effort in the realm of folktronica with a satisfying blend of ancient folklore and modern technology. Adams launched his solo career with Gather Up (2006), a brooding, autumnal album recorded in his apartment. Its hushed melancholy won rave reviews and led to Leavetaking (2008), an understated folk rock album that featured the hit “The Longer I Run”, followed by Traces (2009), and Between Us (2011).

Lauren Midgley is a self-taught photographer and photoshop enthusiast. She studied fine arts at Texas Tech University and began her journey with photography in 2015 with her chosen focus being Conceptual Fine Art Photography. In her exploration of photography as an artistic medium, she says she found herself “increasingly frustrated and limited by the immediately gratifying nature of the beast. Begging to push the boundaries of photography and with limited resources, I set out to utilize the only original thing I have -- my personal life experience.”

Winter Wind Concert - Dori Freeman

Dori Freeman first broke out in 2016, with a stunning debut produced by Teddy Thompson and a sparkling voice that seemed to come from out of nowhere. Her songs were brittle, cracked, infused with heartbreak and seeming to speak for women everywhere, channeling Appalachian women in a way that harkened back to Loretta Lynn.

“The purity of Dori Freeman’s voice and the directness of her songwriting reflect not only her Appalachian hometown — Galax, Va. — but also a determined classicism, a rejection of the ways modern country punches itself up for radio and arenas.” – Jon Pareles, The New York Times
