Traverse City Record-Eagle
---- — TRAVERSE CITY — Sleder’s Family Tavern’s On the Porch concert series presents Adler & Hearne in concert Sunday at 4 p.m.
From their Spring Hollow Organic Song Farm in the pine woods outside the rural arts hamlet of Winnsboro, Texas, Lynn Adler and Lindy Hearne offer music of the folk-jazz-blues variety.
“We call ourselves ‘organic song farmers,’” said Lynn via email. “We’ve played a number of house concerts in the area — ones where we’ve mostly ‘planted’ ourselves, including an annual one we play in Suttons Bay with dear friends there.”
They’ve also played at various churches in the area and for the past two years, have been volunteer musicians at the Traverse City Film Festival. They were also hired to be the featured entertainment at last year’s festival Founder’s Party and have been featured on Sandy Blumenfeld’s “American Crossroads” show on WNMC.
Adler and Hearne first met in Nashville while pursuing solo musical careers. Years later, their paths crossed in Texas, where they formed their duo. Now the award-winning songwriters and national touring artists have returned to the city where they first met to record their debut album, “To The Heart.” It’s a collection of 13 songs that one critic described as feeling “like a slice of life taken directly from Adler & Hearne, and offered up to enjoy and experience.”
Tickets for the performance are $15 in advance and $20 at the door, available in Traverse City at Oryana Food Cooperative, Brilliant Books and Sleder’s. To purchase or for more information, call 947-9213.
The duo will also play at the Brookside Inn in Beulah April 27 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 advance, $20 on the day of the show, from Brookside Inn, Sugar Moon Cafe, East Shore Market and The Corner Drug in Frankfort. For more information, call 882-9688 or visit www.brooksideinn.com.
