Bozeman Spirits wets whistles w/ regular sides of strings
Bozeman Spirits celebrates the Treasure State with every drink it pours, utilizing Montana’s pure Rocky Mountain water to produce its flavorful variety. The downtown distiller continues to serve up the creative cocktails into summer, but the popular tasting room also hosts live music by local musicians every Tuesday (and Thursdays starting later this month) from 5:30–8pm. Here’s a look at the upcoming acts.
Kicking off the first month of summer-proper, enjoy the talents of Josh Moore on Tuesday, June 4th. The North Carolina native is the lead guitarist for Laney Lou & the Bird Dogs – and croons, too! Moore’s solo acoustic show features a healthy blend of originals and covers. Sometimes described as a musically gifted goofball, he’ll bring a mix of good-feelin’ folk and bluegrass to the distillery.
Brice Ash entertains on Tuesday, June 11th. The local singer/songwriter’s debut solo album, The Chariot, carries with it the hopeful hurt, raw honesty, and stirring stories that fans of his rough-hewn songwork have come to expect. Ranging from the heart-wrenching piano/cello duet, “Joe’s Final Bow,” to the gritty roots rocker “Has-Been Man,” the record brims with humanity – brash cowgirls, broken old men, homeless saviors, and high school nerds. Their stories are woven together in an Americana soundscape as Ash explores the corners and alleys of the human condition. Bozeman’s slower pace and breathtaking surroundings continue to nourish Ash’s creativity.
Local country artist W.C. Huntley performs on Tuesday, June 18th. The South Carolinian draws influence from Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Guy Clark, John Prine, Robert Earl Keen and other country greats, from the current and past. His upbeat, finger-picking guitar style and soulful voice are something to behold.
