Opal Fly and I met in New Orleans where Opal was a regular singing and playing soprano and tenor sax on Jackson Square.
A few years later we were both living in Eureka Springs, where I played snare and sang a little on her album 'No Regrets'. We also opened for Ray Charles at the city Auditorium! Join us tonight at my new home away from home with special guests Matt Scott on upright bass, and Emily Jackson on percussion.
The Brown County Inn has been a mainstay in scenic Brown, Indiana since it opened in 1974. The 65,000 square foot hotel, restaurant, and bar is a gathering place for visitors and local families alike.
In early 2009, our founders, Ed, Jeff and Tim, decided to build a brewpub in the Alley, at the corner of Busted Knuckle and Hare Trigger. In 2012, to meet demand for the beer beyond Brown County, the three amigos formed Quaff ON! Brewing Company and built a new production brewery. It didn’t take long before Busted Knuckle, Hare Trigger and Yellow Dwarf were being distributed throughout most of Indiana. “Quaff” means “to drink heartily and with gusto” – and, it captures an idea that goes beyond beer and speaks to a life lived fully!
Part of The Big Woods Brewery and Distillery family. In addition to delicious gastropub food offerings, Big Woods Bloomington features locally-made Hard Truth spirits and Quaff ON! brews alongside some of the highest rated craft beers in the U.S.
Big Woods Pizza Co. is located in the heart of downtown Nashville, IN. This cozy venue offers pizza, sandwiches, salads, and more to guests of all ages, and Brown County-made Quaff ON! brews and Hard Truth spirits are just an order away for the 21+ crowd! This is an all ages family friendly show.
From a coal-mining village in Yorkshire England, Jan Bell made her name as a songwriter in NYC. Over the last twenty years recording seven critically acclaimed albums made in New Orleans, Eureka Springs AR and Brooklyn NYC. Her band "The Maybelles” started out in The Ozarks as a duo with Melissa Carper.
Along the way opening for Wanda Jackson, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Odetta, and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. Independent Music Award for Best Alt. Country album. Nominee Best Concept album ‘Dream of the Miner’s Child’.
“Maybe growing up in Nottinghamshire is what sets Jan Bell apart from the run of local lady folkies. Or maybe its the slide guitars, harmonicas, mandolins and banjos. Dark, old timey spareness......gorgeous ” - Chuck Eddy, The Village Voice
“Bell's music isn't strictly bluegrass, but her reworking of old-time country and jug-band blues is remarkably nuanced. It embodies the wide-open spirit of what has become an antic, hybrid genre.” - Edd Hurt, The Nashville Scene
