It’s that time again! Raymond’s dishing out the details on the Southbound’s hoppy new contribution to its taps in collaboration with Savannah Music Festival over on page 35. Get a glass of the springtime IPA for yourself and enjoy some live music down at the local brewery.
Chapel Hill indie Americana quartet Mipso provides the live entertainment. The band formed through a series of informal jam sessions while mandolinist Jacob Sharp, guitarist Joseph Terrell, and bassist Wood Robinson were attending UNC Chapel Hill. The Mipso Trio, as it was originally called, grew as the band released its debut, Long Long Gone, its follow-up Dark Holler Pop via Chapel Hill label Robust, and their third album, Old Time Reverie. Mipso’s latest, Coming Down the Mountain, expanded their string band roots and incorporated elements of classic folk rock and modern alt-country.
With four-part harmonies, acoustic guitars, and electric instruments and drums, it’s a well-rounded sound that roots music aficionados of all stripes can appreciate. The band will also perform at Savannah Music Festival Finale at Trustees’ Garden April 14.
