The Company Stores is a modern Appalachian rock band, originally from Charleston, WV, whose sound has blazed a trail of dropped jaws and lifelong fans since their inception in 2013. Led by the beautiful Casey Litz's powerful voice, the band takes you on a wild ride of musical genres including Appalachian folk, progressive rock, funk, acid jazz, and even electronic dance. The band will be playing a special St. Patrick's Day show at The Foundry in Athens, incorporating original Irish tunes, old Irish folk songs, and classic Irish rock covers from The Pogues, Dropkick Murphey, Flogging Molly, and more. Expect to hear blazing electric fiddle, guitar, and mandolin, and a barrage of non-stop energy for the Annual St. Patrick's Day Bash at The Foundry. more >>>

The Gentry | 5:30 PM
Join us for a musical history of the Irish and Scottish musical traditions with The Gentry, a trio of outstanding musicians - Sam d'Entremont, flute and vocals; Tracie Brown, harp; and John Norris, acoustic guitar.

"The Gentry," in the context of Irish folklore, refers to one of the names given to the wee people who live under the earth. The Gentry trio will transport you back there with Sam's outstanding tenor voice and lovely flute and Tracie's gorgeous harp (she's a former first-place winner at the U.S. traditional Irish harp competition), all woven together by John's guitar. more >>>
