“His rise has been as improbable as it has been impressive. After dropping out of college and taking on work as a carpenter in Chicago, Joe got his musical start by providing CDs for his fans to pass along to their friends. The Austin, TX singer songwriter has made a habit of defying expectations, showing consistently that he’s quite comfortable stepping outside of the guy-with-a-guitar trappings of this genre.”

Based in Nashville, TN — where frontman jared corder, drummer andy herrin, and keys/singer kristyn corder kicked off the band’s career with 2014’s bad latitude — the three musicians look beyond the borders of their landlocked hometown and, instead, mix california surf culture and new york street smarts into the same tracklist. They’re a blend of bloom, doom, and boom. They’re dick dale’s snot-nosed grandkids. They’re *repeat repeat.
Goldmine Pickers formed in Goshen, Indiana circa 2003. Not long after, the band released their first album self-titled ‘Goldmine Pickers’ in which Lukas Simpson, Jay Lapp, Sean Hoffman and Derek Kratzer holed up in the barn at Red Bridge Retreat (Goshen) to record night and day. This was where the magic started, and though members have changed throughout the years the heart and soul of the band remains the same. This reunion celebrates the genesis of the band where the original cast will fire up the evening and then bring on current and long time member, Adam Carter, to showcase the sonic evolution of the band.
Between heartfelt ballads, epic instrumentals and tasty jams this reunion will be one for one for the books.

Join us at Ignition as we ring in the New Year– collaboratively! What better way to say hello to 2018 than gettin’ down with friends while supporting a plethora of local businesses? (There IS no better way, we checked.)
The fellas of G4VLC Vinyl Club will be providing the NYE tunes, and this year we will be joined by our friends from Common Spirits, and The Elephant Bar — these local favorite spots will be serving their Goshen-famous drinks at Ignition alongside GBCo. beers. Come to GBCo. for a meal first, then head over to Ignition for drinks and fun!
Celebrate the new year downtown! You’re invited to walk through a wintery wonderland of ice sculptures during January First Fridays Fire and Ice. And don’t worry about the cold! You can warm your frigid fingers at the marshmallow roasting stations or by eating a piping hot bowl of something spicy from the food court. Make sure to stop by the “Fire and Ice Party,” featuring fiery foods from local restaurants and an ice bar (yes, we mean it’s actually made of ice) where the bartender will serve up ice-cold beer, wine, and cocktails.
The Deep Dark Woods’ newest album was borne in a fever – scarlet fever, to be medically specific. A disease of the last century is a fitting backdrop for songs that dig bare handed into the loam to unearth the corpses of old English folk and country blues. In Yarrow, the Deep Dark Woods are reimagined by leadman Ryan Boldt, and accompanied by the same band that crafted prairie psychedelics and a “loose grungy folk sound” for flannelites. For nearly ten years they developed an international following with particular success in the Americana realm, nominated alongside Alabama Shakes and Dawes for Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2012 Americana Music Awards
Special Guest TBD
Distinct, honest, and intense — a blend of traditional blues and progressive, jam-oriented blues rock. Face-melting guitar solos that rise above the crowded field of pretenders, and a versatile band that brilliantly delivers unparalleled improvisational jams to packed houses night after night, city after city. Nick is a gifted storyteller, a songwriter that takes his craft seriously and a musician with a daunting work ethic. He is a walking encyclopedia of blues and music knowledge, and his deep understanding of the genre shines on the new release From the Root to the Fruit (Blue Bella Records, 2016).
With gritty vocals over rock riffs and horns, The Commonheart delivers an emotion-packed, soulful sound that lights up any stage. Frontman Clinton Clegg is a powerhouse who commands full attention with his limitless onstage energy and vocal range. The new album “Grown” is a remarkable display of each member’s talent interlacing heavy blues, soul, and gospel influence across trumpet, saxophone, keys, guitar, and singers. The Commonheart’s sound is a true testament to the past while completely holding its own as one of today’s most promising acts.
Ignition favorites Los Colognes return for their fourth visit to Goshen. 2017 saw the release of their third album Wave (Big Deal/Thirty Tigers). They have been touring with Blues Traveler, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Hard Working Americans. If you like the 70’s guitar rock of JJ Cale, Dire Straits and Eric Clapton you will dig this show.

Is it folk music with a little extra groove, or is it bluegrass music with righteous rock beats? Regardless of description, The Tumbleweed Jumpers are a monster of a folk-rock-Americana band–an eight-member, bristling, roaring, dancing, skipping, jamming monster full of infectious melodies, and we’re brewing a beer in honor of this amazing group. Join us for the beer release and a great show!
Grab a friend and join us for this amazing band on the GBCo. lawn stage, sponsored by Eyedart Creative Studio! Tickets on sale now: 2 for $15 in advance or $10 each day of show.
Bio: The music is a patchwork amalgam of influences, including: twangy Southern rock (they’ve opened for the Drive-By Truckers), reverb-soaked psychedelia reminiscent of early My Morning Jacket or fellow Athens residents Phosphorescent, soaring guitar solos à la Neil Young and Crazy Horse, rhythmic jangle from that other Athens band, REM, multi-part vocal harmonies (which every band ought to have, dammit), and, weaving through it all, lyrical slide guitar. – Vox.com
Bio: “Adam Lee is restless. “I’ve never been comfortable sitting still,” he notes, in the midst of preparing his debut solo album, ‘Sincerely Me,’ released August 26th. A varied and engaging collection of songs, the record finds Lee constantly in motion. He criss-crosses genre and influence, always sure of his footing, yet unwilling to remain planted in one spot. Adam Lee is a man moving forward. Moving on. ’Sincerely, Me’ reads like a goodbye note. A farewell to home. All told, ‘Sincerely, Me’ is a strong and diverse debut, a record reminiscent of a life spent in no one place in particular. Roots-rock songwriter Justin Wells sums up this sentiment. “Somebody’s gonna file this album under Americana, but that’s because Adam Lee isn’t a genre… it nods at several American musics without knowing the meaning of derivative.”
The Lost Luggage is a jazz trio based in Goshen, featuring classic jazz vibraphone sounds reminiscent of classic artists such as Cal Tjader and Milt Jackson. They play original tunes, jazz, Latin jazz, and blues with a vibes, bass, drums instrumentation. Join us for our Wednesday Music series in the Beer Hall!
“Jack Byron is a singer-songwriter from Chicago, IL. A self taught musician, Byron’s musical heroes range from The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams, Van Morrison, Tom Petty, Jason Isbell, and John Mayer. He picked up the guitar and piano in high school, wrote his first song at 17, and has been honing his craft ever since. With an affinity for writing about the simple joys and struggles of your everyday man and woman, Byron found himself drawn towards the Folk/Americana genre, with its rich musical heritage and storytelling tendencies.” – Jackbyronmusic.com
Paul draws a lot of influence from American roots music. He has a background firmly planted in blues and found the folky country songwriting style of writers like Gram Parsons, Jason Isbell, and Jackson Browne really lit a fire inside him for telling stories through song. Paul is a seasoned guitar player with his roots in the farmlands of southern Indiana. The country sounds of Indiana blend well with his early blues influences.
From his bio:
“Themes of hope, sadness, and striving fill Andrew Pauls’ original songs. Rooted in traditional American folk music. Andrew’s lyrics dance with soulful banjo and guitar playing to create thought-provoking songs. In Andrew’s music, listeners will hear influences from songwriting veterans John Prine and Bob Dylan with hints of contemporary artists like Mandolin Orange and Tallest Man on Earth.
Andrew performs often in the Lancaster, PA area and he lives there with his spouse Laura and all of their instruments. He is interested in the way music can hold together a world that can feel as if it is falling apart.”
