Under the Willow to play Two Brothers Summer Festival with Jason Isbell & Cornmeal

Jason IsbellThe Two Brothers Summer Festival is a weekend long music festival focused on charity and community. The idea stems from the ideologies of the Ebel brothers, owners of the Two Brothers Brewing Company. Two Brothers Summer Festival was created to raise money and awareness for a growing list of charities, as well as give back to the local and regional community. Two Brothers Brewing Company is proud to have granted several wishes via the Make-A-Wish Foundation and helped a number of other children’s charities in its 18 years. The Two Brothers Brewing Company is increasing its philanthropic programs on a local and national level with the 2015 Two Brothers Summer Festival.

Tickets will go on sale at 11:00 AM on Tuesday, April 21st and will be available at http://www.twobrothersbrewing.com/summerfestival/

New Year’s Eve with Donna the Buffalo

donna-nyeWe’ll be ringing in 2015 with seminal Zydeco, Folk-Rock band Donna the Buffalo at Skipper’s Smokehouse for a WMNF New Year’s Batch.

Donna the Buffalo draws their inspiration from a cherished part of the American heritage: the old-time music festivals of the south that drew entire towns and counties together. “Those festivals were so explosive, and the community and the feeling of people being with each other, that’s the feeling we were shooting for in our music,” Puryear says. “Donna the Buffalo is an extension of the joy we’ve found.”

Let’s dance one more time in 2014!

Mulberry Mountain Harvest Fest

We’re playing Yonder Mountain String Band’s Harvest Music Festivalharvestposter this fall in Ozark, Arkansas! Under the Willow is happy to announce we’ll be joining this beautiful festival held on the side of Mulberry Mountain. It is one of the best fests anywhere.
