Tara Mills & Jimmy Stelling – 18 Mar 2018 @Batesville Market
March 18 @ 13:00 - 15:30Free
Inspired by the Blue Ridge Mountains and the rich musical traditions tied to them, Tara Mills Music describes her music as ”original mountain Americana” – an original blend of folk, bluegrass, and Americana.
Writing and singing most of her life, it wasn’t long before Tara picked up a guitar and taught herself how to express the melodies in her head through her songs and hauntingly beautiful lyrics. Influenced by bluegrass, old country, and traditional mountain folk, she creates an original sound that captures true human feeling and emotion.
Jimmy Stelling is the son of Geoff Stelling, founder of Stelling banjos, and is one of the founders of the successfully touring band, The Hackensaw Boys, out of Charlottesville, Virginia. Jimmy’s unique drive and tasteful melodies on the banjo compliment and harmonize to the sweet songs and emotion the two capture while playing.
Tara and Jimmy have played together at many music festivals including DelFest, The Festy Experience, Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, Red Wing Roots Music Festival, Campout East, Camp Barefoot, Misty Mountain Music Festival, The Crozet Music Festival, The Blue Ridge Oyster Festival, Mountain Cove Music Festival, and many other venues, radio and television broadcasts, and on the internet.
