PFAC concludes summer series with free concert

August 15, 2010
The Pinedale Fine Arts Council is proud to present Austin alt-country band Screen Door Porch performing live in the American Legion Park on Friday, Aug. 20 beginning at 6:00 p.m. Local singer/songwriter Jared Rogerson will open things up with a solo set of original tunes. And best of all, the show is free!
The duo of Screen Door Porch—Seadar Rose and Aaron Davis—deliver groove-injected Alt-Folk and soulful Americana, garnished with multi-instrumentation. This roots music combined with ambient textures, dirty slide guitar, and country-sweet harmonies outline a sound that is not quite acoustic. The duo will be performing as a 5-piece band for the Aug. 20 performance.
Seadar Rose grew up in North Carolina, where she was exposed to the roots of Appalachian folk music. A vocalist before she ever picked up an instrument, she started performing and playing guitar after meeting Davis in Wyoming.
Aaron Davis hails from Kentucky, where he began writing poems in grade school. He picked up the guitar at age nineteen, inspired from the folk-rock of Dylan and The Band, as well as the blossoming jamband scene. Much of his twenties were spent in the unrivaled solitude of Wyoming's Teton Mountains, all the while exploring a multitude of music styles and instruments. His solo album Rear View Mirror was called "One of the Best Americana Releases of 2008" by Rootstime and it reached #16 on the Freeform American Roots Chart alongside Bob Dylan and Old Crow Medicine Show.
Rose and Davis have been fortunate to share concert bills with Willie Nelson, Wilco, Brian Wilson, Yonder Mountain String Band, James McMurtry, Grace Potter, Medeski Martin & Wood, Reckless Kelly, Henry Butler, Kaki King, Anne & Pete Sibley, Jalan Crossland, and many other inspiring groups.
Screen Door Porch’s Aug. 20 show is presented by the Pinedale Fine Arts Council with support from The Town of Pinedale, Sublette County Recreation Board and the Sublette County Joint Tourism Promotion Board.
