The Fair Trade Music Series at The ArtsCenter presents The Ayr Mountaineers
The ArtsCenter is proud to present The Ayr Mountaineers as the first local band in our Fair Trade Music Series. The band has hit the scene running since they began toting their blend of Americana music around these parts in 2010. Special guest Jennifer Curtis will join the group on fiddle for the evening.
The Ayr Mountaineers are an old-time and bluegrass influenced Americana band rooted in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Their backporch-pickin’ sound warms the heart, taps the toes, and makes the bodies shake. Ella Bertram's original songwriting makes The Ayr Mountaineers stand out. Since fall 2010 they have been playing in and around the Triangle, filling restaurants, bars, clubs and parks with their unique mountainous sound. Early 2012 marked the release of their debut, self-titled album which, as you will find, flows like a crisp mountain stream into a whiskey still. They begin work on their second album this fall.
The Ayr Mountaineers are fully committed to living a musical life, and we’re throwing our support behind them. Join us for this flagship performance! The ArtsCenter adheres to Fair Trade Music practices, which promotes fair pay scales to musicians local and otherwise. Come out and SUPPORT LOCAL MUSIC!
