“Hailing from North Lake Tahoe, Calif., Americana band Dead Winter Carpenters has built a reputation for pouring their heart and soul into each performance. In just a few years, they have positioned themselves, wrote Portland Metronome, “at the forefront of a youthful generation trying to redefine what string music is and what it can do.”
That progressive nature comes through loud and clear – from instruments plugged and unplugged – in the band’s new release, Washoe (February 26, 2016). The band’s fourth studio project, the 12-song collection of originals was recorded in Reno’s Sierra Sonics Studio (Ozzy Ozbourne, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Collective Soul) and co-produced by Dead Winter Carpenters and Zachary Girdis.
The band’s previous albums include the group’s 2010 self-titled debut, Ain’t It Strange (2012), and the much-acclaimed Dirt Nap (2014), of which CMT Edge wrote, “With one listen to Dead Winter Carpenters’ ‘Easy Sleep,’ you’ll get a strong sense of where this California band is coming from.”
Reminiscent of genre-benders like Jack White, Chris Thile, and Sam Bush, Dead Winter Carpenters harmoniously blends refined musical ability with a scarcely restrained tendency to let it all hang out. The result is a controlled burn, a riveting sound, and a connection with fans that sells out shows and has the band sharing stages with the likes of Jason Isbell, Greensky Bluegrass, and Hard Working Americans.
Members include Jesse Dunn (acoustic and electric guitars, vocals), Jenni Charles (fiddle, vocals), Dave Lockhart (upright and electric bass, vocals), Bryan Daines (lead telecaster guitar, vocals), and Brian Huston (drums, vocals).”
“Doors” typically open at 5:30pm for concerts.
Brice Station’s Hilltop Venue is located four miles past Murphys, on the way towards Arnold, on Highway 4. Look for the old red truck at the bottom of the driveway – and head up the road past our tasting room and Quyle Kilns Pottery. You should be greeted by our helpful parking staff then head up towards the barns to our box office tables.
Please check in to get your ticket and wristband.
Seating is “festival style”. Plastic adirondack chairs are available on a first come, first serve basis, and we recommend you bring your own low back chairs for seating on our lawn. Feel free to walk around the venue, but please stay inside marked boundaries. We are a working operation that includes a lot of hazardous equipment and steep terrain. Feel free to dance your heart out anywhere on the lawn!
Wine, wine cocktails, sodas, water, farm-to-table dinner and desserts are available for purchase. Feel free to bring your own food and non alcoholic drinks with you, but please clean up after yourself and take full advantage of the trash and recycling cans.
Our Farm-to-Table dinners will be provided by Tyler Waterman and Waterman Farms – fresh organic vegetables straight from the Brice Station property! There will be vegetarian options available. Call for more information.
Please do not bring any outside alcoholic beverages. Just don’t. Not only do you hurt our feelings, but it is not permitted under our alcohol license and you could get us in lots of trouble with the gub’ment.
Feel free to smoke in designated areas only.
Concert tickets will be available online in the coming months.
