Time Sawyer

April 6 : 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$8 cover ~

On our stage for the first time and we know you’ll LOVE this show!

Time Sawyer’s name reflects the pull between the past and the future. The character Tom
Sawyer evokes the rural background and love of home that the band shares. Time is a
muse for songwriting; it’s the thread that runs through life, bringing new experiences and
giving us a sense of urgency, while still connecting us with our past.
The folk-rock band has performed on the stages of some of the Southeast’s most iconic
festivals, including Merlefest, Floydfest, Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, Albino Skunk
Music Festival, and Carolina in the Fall. They’ve shared bills with American Aquarium, John
Craigie, Hiss Golden Messenger, Langhorne Slim, John Moreland, Steep Canyon Rangers,
The Wood Brothers, Susto, and many more.

In March 2020 the band started a variety livestream called “Sam on Sunday.” The show
originated out of necessity, as the pause button was hit for live shows, but quickly, connecting
with friends, family, and fans each week became just as important. As live music returned, the
project transformed into “Sam on Someday,” bringing together guest artists of widely varying
genres to create memorable, one-time-only collaborative experiences.
Time Sawyer’s songs call out the attitudes and behaviors that lead to our divisions – the way
that we show understanding to our friends and family, without thinking about how folks
outside our social circle are experiencing their own problems, and are, at heart, just like us. The
music does what might seem impossible. It holds listeners accountable, but at the same time,
draws them in and makes them feel good about what we all have in common. One of Time
Sawyer’s goals has always been for listeners to feel a sense of community and connection
during the show, and then to keep it with them, long after the music ends.
