“One thing is obvious to all: The Packway Handle Band is not your father’s bluegrass band.” -Bluegrass Now Magazine

“If you like Chatham County Line and/or The Avett Brothers, then you should catch this perpetually touring five-piece for a trad-absurdist experience delivered from exceptionally seasoned youths.” -Flagpole Magazine

Packway has been busy putting the final polish and shine on a brand new LP that will be released in mid-May. The record is produced by Scott McCaughey (REM, Wilco, Minus 5) and was recorded at Chase Transductions Studios in Athens, GA. The record also features some great special guests including: Bill Berry (REM), Brad Morgan (Drive By Truckers), Matt “Pistol” Stoessel (Cracker, T. Hardy Morris), Thayer Serano, and Shonna Tucker (Drive By Truckers).

Be sure to catch this hard touring five-piece for a trad-absurdist, roots-grass, punk-folk experience that will leave you with the satisfying feeling of being simultaneously slapped in the face and kissed on the mouth.

Tryon International Equestrian Center

Tryon International Equestrian Center at Tryon Resort is one of the world’s premier equestrian lifestyle destinations and competition venues. The venue provides outstanding facilities for hunter/jumper, dressage, and eventing competitions. With onsite shops, dining, entertainment and plans for more, non-equestrian visitors are equally marveled by the Tryon Resort experience. This new facility opened in June 2014 with sanctioned horse shows and initial supporting amenities, and now boasts 12 riding arenas, 1,200 permanent stalls, and a variety of restaurants, shops, and lodging options, plus a sporting clay course and a golf and sports club. Future expansion includes a 180-room resort hotel, condos and apartments, additional mixed-used retail, visitor center, and sports complex.

Tryon International Equestrian Center is a spring, summer and fall haven for eastern and northeastern American equestrian competitors and enthusiasts, and a year-round destination for connoisseurs of diverse cuisine and family entertainment.

Coupled with TIEC’s Grand Prix competitions is the ever-popular “Saturday Night Lights” event series. From car shows to beer festivals, these action-packed nights are typically built around a theme and feature free entertainment like live bands, face painting, rides on a Venetian carousel and performances by aerial artists, magicians, jugglers and more!
