We’ve started to add some things to the calendar for spring 2016!
On Saturday, March 12, we will play a show at Fermental Beer & Wine in Wilmington, NC. This will be our first show since the new album came out in September! Weather permitting, we will be performing on the outdoor stage. 8-10pm. FREE. Well-behaved pets and children are welcome at this all ages show. See the Facebook event for additional info.
Folkstar will play for the first time in Greenville, NC on Saturday, March 26th, as part of an indie showcase at Crave Restaurant. We will be joined by Christy Snow, Heather Rogers, and Someone’s Sister. Show begins at 7pm. More details to follow, but get it on your calendars now, Greenville peeps!
We are also pleased to announce we will once again be participating in the Benefit for InterAct at Deep South the Bar in Raleigh, an annual event to raise money and awareness for InterAct of Wake County. InterAct is a nonprofit agency providing support to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. NC Local Music does an awesome job putting this concert together every year and we are thrilled that we’ve been invited back. There will be prizes, and of course great live music. Show begins at 7pm. Check out the Facebook event.
More things to come! In the meantime, you can still get Treelines and Skylines (as well as our other two albums Loud and Clear and Emotional Bootcamp) in our online store, through digital retailers such as iTunes and Amazon, and locally in Wilmington at Gravity Records and Old Books on Front St. Follow us on Spotify and add us to your playlists. And don’t forget to order a custom print of Sue Cag’s amazing painting that went on to become the cover for Treelines and Skylines!
Look whose album cover is the image for part 5 of The Year in Local Albums! Thanks WAE! Everybody check out parts 1-4 as well and ooh and ah about all of the great music that came out this year! You can still get Treelines and Skylines at http://folkstar.bandcamp.com or locally at Gravity Records and Old Books on Front Street.
If you’re on the east coast like we are, you’re probably enjoying weather that is in no way indicative of late December, with Christmas just a week away. Our temperatures here have been in the 70s, which makes it a little harder to get into the festive mood. We’d like to help, as we once again share some Christmas spirit with you in the form of our video for “Alone on Christmas.” It’s hard to believe that we filmed this gem three years ago!
Also, just in time for those last-minute gifts, we have Treelines and Skylines Art Prints available in the Folkstar store! These high quality reproductions of Sue Cag’s original painting also include a full description of the meaning behind the art and are a great gift for family, friends, or that blank spot on your own wall! Of course we have all kinds of other cool stuff in the online store, including custom guitar pic necklaces, t-shirts, and CDs. If you haven’t gotten your copy of Treelines and Skylines yet, be sure to send Santa a link to our online store or let him know he can also swing by Gravity Records or Old Books on Front St in Wilmington, NC. Merry Christmas!
