Bryce Alan Flurie – Original Acoustic Americana
Fireside Collective – Progressive Folk, Bluegrass, Newgrass

Fireside Collective

Fireside Collective, a Progressive Folk band heavily influence by American Roots Music, features strong musicianship, colorful harmonies, and contemporary original music. Proud to be a part of Asheville, North Carolina’s burgeoning music and art scene, the Collective seeks to bridge the gaps between early folk music, the urban folk revival, and the current folk renaissance happening today. Expect to see an energetic live show featuring songs of leaving, songs of love, and songs of life.

Bryce Alan Flurie

There is an intersection where the dirt roads of the blues, folk, and old school country meet. It is right in the middle of Fallowtown.

Fallowtown is the soil where Bryce Alan Flurie’s songs get planted. Bryce ain’t no folk singer and contrary to the “all hat and no cattle” country music of today Bryce’s songs are influenced heavily by Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings, Steve Earle, Townes Van Zandt, and Guy Clark. They turn tales, true or not, of red dirt soil, cornfields, moonshine, contrary milk cows and contrarier old men and the women that may or may not have done them wrong.

Fallowtown ain’t your Daddy’s music. Might have been your Grandaddy’s, though. These are all original new tunes whittled with a rusty old blade that’s sharp as all hell. This is music for the pool hall, the butcher shop, the factory floor, or the farmhouse, which incidentally is where this album was recorded.
