Bozeman Spirits now pouring Arrestado agave, tasting room troubadours
Whether you’re soaking up some sun on the patio or making your way inside for a brief reprieve from the heat, Bozeman Spirits Distillery is the perfect venue for a downtown pit stop. Through the month of August, the tasting room hosts live music by local musicians every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30–8pm. Here’s a look at the upcoming acts to enjoy alongside a tasty adult concoction.
Returning to the distillery is Christy Hays on Tuesday, August 20th. Splitting her time between Austin and Southwest Montana, the singer/songwriter’s music has folk and country tinges, thoughtfully penned stories and a full band sound that’s both driving alt country and moody folk rock. Compared to Brandi Carlile, Lucinda Williams, Rhett Miller, Kathleen Edwards and Patty Griffin, she has a sound uniquely her own. She’s shared the stage with Hayes Carll, Sturgil Simpson, Bruce Robison, Kelly Willis and Jeffery Foucault to name a few. River Swimmer, Hays’ latest release, brings the culmination of her influences and experiences traveling the world.
Dan Henry performs Thursday, August 22nd. The Montana native is a singer/songwriter with a unique vocal style coupled with acoustic guitar and bluesy harmonica. He’s driven by a blues influence, but covers a wide range of music from folk and rock to reggae, and so much more.
Sip a Montana Mule to the sounds of Tom Kirwan on Tuesday, August 27th. He performs a blend of folk country and Americana. Tom’s songs evoke nostalgia of long-ago dreams and people, while weaving stories of human longing both past and present.
Local songwriter Peter King provides the bar-side entertainment on August 29th, the final Thursday night set for the season. The Dead Yellers’ frontman gears his original lyrics around the human condition, love, war and self-control. His originals tell the story of honest, blue collar life in a small town. King’s influences range from the lonesome classic country sound to that of a DIY punk rock group. Come enjoy an adult beverage and listen to some great acoustics from this fine fellow!
A new month of live music first features the talents of local artist Amy Lee Hubbard on Tuesday, September 3rd. Head down for a cocktail, kick back and enjoy the acoustics.
