An Evening with The Nesters!
September 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
On Saturday, September 15th at 7:00 pm the Little White Church Sessions at the AME Allen Chapel (508 Cedar Street) presents An Evening with The Nesters! Easterners transplanted to the wild west, Jami Lynn and Eliza are modern troubadours. Over the past decade, both women have garnered abundant accolades releasing albums and touring nationally and internationally with their respective solo projects. The Nesters began when Jami and Eliza got together to jam. They each knew right away they’d found something special in the other. Their love of cowboy culture and the prairie narrative, not to mention banjo and the poetry of naturalists like Mary Oliver, have made collaborative songwriting and arranging a joy.
Their delight is infectious. Their stage banter and harmonies are charming audiences, and led to a groundswell of support that has taken the women by surprise. One of their first efforts was a video recorded in Eliza’s barn on an iPhone for NPR’s tiny desk contest. It was picked up by South Dakota Public Broadcasting after being voted a “fan favorite.” Since then, their popularity has continued to grow, from standing-room-only shows in coffee shops to headlining spots in festivals.
Music doesn’t get much better than this! Come down to check out the AME Allen Chapel, hear some great music, and enjoy some refreshments! A Free-Will Offering is requested to help offset costs.
