Beloved local singer-songwriter Drew Holcomb and his band The Neighbors are returning to The Ryman Auditorium for a two-night stay in support of their stellar new record, Souvenir. Friday, they’ll be joined by established singer-songwriter Joe Purdy, while Saturday night’s show will feature indie-folk singer/songwriter duo Penny & Sparrow.
Holcomb and company have become an East Nashville staple, having released ten stellar albums over the past nine years. Comprised of Holcomb, his wife Ellie, Nathan Dugger and Rich Brinsfield, the band have become an unstoppable touring machine over the course of a decade. They’ve brought their heartfelt alt-Americana sound to thousands as support for everyone from Ryan Adams to Los Lobos. If you’ve watched any popular modern television series in the past couple of years, you’ve probably heard a track or two pop up during a dramatic scene.
In 2013, they found huge success with their record Good Light, which racked up impressive rankings on the rock, Americana, folk and independent charts. 2015’s Medicine, and its Springsteen-esque single “Shine Like Lightning,” earned praise from fans both old and new and cemented them as Americana mainstays. With their latest LP, Souvenir, earning even more critical praise, there’s no better time to catch Holcomb than during his return to The Ryman stage.
Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors will perform Friday, May 12 with Joe Purdy and Saturday, May 13 with Penny & Sparrow at The Ryman Auditorium. The shows are all ages, begin at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $29.50-44.50 here (Fri) and here (Sat).
