Teitur with Special Guests Grace & Tony at Eddie’s Attic
Teitur (Tie-tor), left his homeland, the remote, beautiful, wild and weather beaten Faroe Islands in the far North Atlantic as a teenager. He was convinced that if he wanted to follow his dream of making his own music he had to go somewhere with the access to the technology and musical professionalism that he felt wasn’t available at home. Ten years after the release of his first album, Poetry & Aeroplanes he has come full circle returning both to home and his musical roots to record his sixth album Story Music. Those ten years and his experiences gave him the conviction that he had to make his next record on The Faroes, so in April of this year saw Teitur recording in the brand new Studio Bloch in Torshavn, recently built by his long time sound engineer Jonas Bloch Danielsen in a 130 year old former ice factory. He had a collection of songs and compositions, with which he says he set out to challenge the conventions of pop songwriting.
Doors at 6:30 p.m. Tickets: GA $11 in advance, $15 at the door. Table seats are $13.75 in advance and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Online and phone sales close at 5 p.m.

The Bohannons with Blue Blood at The EARL
The Bohannons inhabit a musical universe that, while certainly drawing influence from all over, is firmly rooted in their Tennessee home. With their full-length debut album Unaka Rising, they are clearly taking their homegrown, handcrafted rock to a new level, and we think they’ve set the bar pretty damn high with this one.
