Growing up in the rural parts of northern Washington and currently calling Portland, Oregon home, Anna Tivel’s music reflects both the stark colors of small town life and the hard, sharp lines of the city. Anna’s newest album, Small Believer, came out on Portland’s well-loved Fluff & Gravy Records and was produced by guitar mastermind Austin Nevins (Josh Ritter, Anais Mitchell, Kris Delmhort). NPR called Small Believer, “a compassionate chronicle of those lives often overlooked, simultaneously clear-eyed and open to dreaming.” Her previous album, Heroes Waking Up was hailed by Folk Radio UKas “a superb and sublime album from a voice that deserves to be shouted from the highest rooftops.” In addition to receiving great reviews, Anna is also a recent recipient of both the Telluride Troubadour Contest and the Kerrville New Folk Contest.
Opening the show, singer-songwriter Daniel Ayers is a young folk musician who grew up in North Carolina and has been climbing the local music ranks for the past couple years. Daniel, who is best known for his genuine songwriting and sense of humor, is without a doubt an artist who is giving a voice to the next generation through his songs about the modern times.
The Centennial Station Arts Center is located in downtown High Point at 121 S. Centennial Street. The Centennial Station bar will also be open for this event with specials on craft beer and wine.
