Presented in partnership with the House of Songs, join us in the forest for an evening of country music with Dylan Earl. Born in Louisiana, Dylan made his way up to Arkansas after being displaced by hurricanes in 2005 and has since been naturalized by the Natural State. You can often find Dylan and his boys out on the road anywhere between honky-tonks to opera houses to dingy basements. There is no improper place for his music. He prefers sleeping outside, Hamm’s beer, Thin Lizzy, the company of his peers, and good attitudes. Get to know more about Dylan Earl and enjoy an evening of fun country music in the North Forest!
Opening band: Jonathan Terrell
Austin, TX singer-songwriter proves bad boy with a heart of gold with latest LP release, Westward. Born in a singlewide trailer deep in the pines of East Texas to a family of ex-religious cult musicians, Terrell has been engulfed in a life of music since birth. After migrating to Austin in 2006, he anchored himself firmly in the city’s infamous music scene. As a beloved country and folk songwriter, he trailed close to his heroes Kris Kristofferson and Townes Van Zandt. His sweaty and electric live shows spin honky tonk dance floors and quickly whip heads around to reveal him as a bold lyricist and explosive front man with “Springsteenian” prowess.
