Open Mic Session - Presented by Piper & Leaf

Piper & Leaf and Tangled String Studios are working to foster young, local music talent (20-something and younger.) Kick back and enjoy the low-pressure atmosphere. Grab this awesome opportunity perform in a public venue using high-end gear with no pressure.

Instead of a traditional cover charge, grab a Piper & Leaf drink then head over to Tangled Strings to perform or listen.

We will host Open Mic on the third Tuesday of each month from 6:00 - 8:00 pm.  Doors open at 5:15 for sign up.  Only 15 slots available.

Tangled String Studios is a premium performance venue used by professional music artists. The studio quality sound equipment will be set up for use. There are a piano and guitar on site.  If you know a young, aspiring artist, invite them to share their talent. Or participate; take the stage!

Note: This is for people looking to perform. Please bring prepared works. Offensive language will not be tolerated!
----------------------------------------
What about 'older' musicians? They are important too! Come listen and support the young artists. We are hoping to develop and foster the young ones through this initiative. ('Young' meaning roughly 20 somethings and younger). There are not a lot of venues that allow new artists to perform in a professional atmosphere. We may open it up if there is enough demand from the...ahem...'wiser' musicians.

Claire Lynch - SOLD OUT!

SOLD OUT!

$30 advanced price / $35 Day of Show

Long recognized and praised as a creative force in acoustic music, Claire Lynch is a pioneer who continually pushes the boundaries of the bluegrass genre. Her career has been decorated with many accolades including three GRAMMY nominations, six International Bluegrass Music Association awards and the prestigious United States Artists Walker Fellowship.  

Dolly Parton credits Claire with "one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today." Her harmonies have graced the recordings of many stellar musicians. Equally gifted as a writer, her songs have been recorded by The Seldom Scene, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, Cherryholmes, The Whites and others.  

Blazing her own trail in the mid 70's when there were few role models for young women in the genre, Claire Lynch made history when she led the Front Porch String Band which evolved in the 80’s and 90’s into “one of the sharpest and most exciting post-modern bluegrass bands on the circuit.” She formed her own Claire Lynch Band in 2005 and has since consistently been a top pick of prestigious publications, critics and audiences across the U.S. and beyond.

In September 2016, Claire released North By South – a tribute to America’s northern neighbor which resulted in her third GRAMMY nomination for Best Bluegrass Album. Produced by Compass Records’ co-founder Alison Brown, the recording pays homage to some of her favorite Canadian songwriters, interpreting tracks from greats above the Great Lakes like Gordon Lightfoot and Ron Sexsmith. Backed by the CLB alumni and some of the world’s finest acoustic heavyweights (Bela Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Stuart Duncan, David Grier), Lynch infuses the collection with her signature Bluegrass treatment producing an elegant blend of foreign songs and domestic artistry.

Patterson Hood SOLD OUT 7 pm Show

Patterson Hood SOLD OUT 7 pm Show

Fans of the southern rock band the Drive-By Truckers are in for a special treat, Shoals native and critically-acclaimed songwriter Patterson Hood of the Drive-By Truckers will be joining us for a special acoustic performance at Tangled String Studios on December 14th, 2017.

Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 day of the show. 

Patterson Hood, co-founder and lead singer of the Drive-By Truckers, has led the southern rock ensemble since 1996. Hood over the past several years has been dabbling into the world of solo performances in-between tours with DBT. The Drive-By Truckers have always been outspoken, telling a distinctly American story via craft, character, and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience.  

Patterson Hood has three solo records to his name with his latest solo album in 2012, “Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance”. “Back in January 2011, worn out from having spent a year on tour and facing a new album’s release and another year spent mostly on a bus, away from the comforts of home and family, I decided to try to write a book. I had made a couple of stabs in that direction before (as well as a couple of screenplays) but had so far failed to complete one. The thing is, I love to write on the road. I write most every day out there. It’s usually not songs, as completing a song amid all of the noise, distractions, and music blasting on the bus is very difficult (I do often start songs there that get finished later) but writing non-musical compositions comes pretty easy for me out here and it sure passes the time. Besides, I had an idea for a story I wanted to write and it started coming very easily. By our third month on the road, I already had a pretty firm outline of what I wanted and several chapters that I felt really good about. I called it Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance and decided that spring to record it as a solo album. I could clearly hear in my head exactly how I wanted every song to sound and made a list of who I wanted to play on each one. It is in some ways the most personal album I’ve ever made. There has always been a lot of me in all of the albums we’ve done, but usually semi-disguised as character sketches and stories, but the first person narrative in this one is pretty firmly rooted in autobiography, albeit in two dramatically differing time periods.

Please join us at Tangled String Studios on December 14th for this special acoustic performance! 

**IMPORTANT NOTE**   Tickets are non-refundable unless the show is canceled or rescheduled. Patrons are invited to bring your own beverage of choice! Venue capacity is 100+ seats
