Sister Hazel

Time: April 19 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Venue: Joy & Lynch Christian Warehouse Theatre
Cost: $41

Originating from Gainesville, FL, Sister Hazel is comprised of five gifted, seasoned musicians whose well – spring of natural talent has been called “one of the Top 100 Most Influential Independent Performers of the last 15 years” by Performing Songwriter Magazine. Song “All for You” topped the adult alternative charts during the summer of 1997 and the success propelled their album to platinum status.

In their first showing on the country music charts they made a strong debut with “Lighter In The Dark” at #4 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, #6 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart, #30 on Billboard’s Top Current Albums chart.

The band landed on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart again in 201 8 and 2019 with Volumes I, II, III, and IV of a clever EP compilation series titled “Elements.” In February 2018, “Water,” landed on the Billboard Country Albums chart at #9 and at #2 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart along with making their debut on the most revered stage in country music, the Grand Ole Opry. In September of 201 8 , “Wind” landed at #1 on iTunes country page and #11 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart . In February 2019, Vol. III “Fire” landed at #5 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart and #46 Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart. The collectible compilation series ended with “Earth” which again landed at on the charts at #15 on Billboard’s Americana /Folk Album chart.

Living up to their fan-centered reputation, the band hosts annual events like “Hazelnut Hang,” that focuses on fan involvement and was a pioneer in themed cruise experiences by co-founding “The Rock Boat,” a cruise featuring nonstop opportunities for fan/artist interaction. Sister Hazel has been equally attentive to connecting with their audience through social media. They have since made their Grand Ole Opry debut and shared the stages with country music superstars at The CMA Festival, Tortuga Music Festival, among others. In addition to the events and touring, the band also gives back with “Lyrics For Life.” Founded by singer Ken Block and the Band, the charity unites musicians and celebrities for concerts and auctions to benefit cancer research and patient – care charities.

This is a standing room only, general admission event. 

Opener: Sara Beck

Sara Beck’s music has carried her far from her hometown of Ellicott City, Maryland – to arenas, theaters, and clubs all around the world. After 21 years of living in Nashville, Tennessee, Beck relocated to Lynchburg, Virginia where she has released two additional projects: Sea of Sublime (2022) and LoFi Dolly (2023). As a songwriter, Beck draws from the roots-folk traditions of Patty Griffin and Brandi Carlile, with a straightforward approach to storytelling. Sonically, she and her co-producer Park Chisolm (Kevin Costner & Modern West) favor ambient, atmospheric soundscapes that evoke Peter Gabriel and Daniel Lanois. During her lengthy stay in Nashville, Beck recorded five albums, wrote songs for major label artists, and toured throughout the US and Europe. Notably, she also recorded the theme song “I Know These Hills” for Kevin Costner’s Emmy-winning television mini-series Hatfields and McCoys.
