Join us on Thursday, July 12 for Adler and Hearne
From the Upper East Side of Texas outside the rural arts hamlet of Winnsboro, award-winning performing songwriters Lynn Adler and Lindy Hearne tour nationally, serving up fresh harvests of homegrown music mixed with seasoned original songs in a genre they define as “Folk-Jazz Blues-Grass. Certified Organic.”
In concert, she (Adler) and he (Hearne) blend their voices and instruments in a signature sound that reflects the second-nature connection these two have through their soulful and spirited blend of singing and songwriting.
The two met in Nashville while on solo musical journeys. Years later their paths merged in Texas, where they formed the duo Adler & Hearne, along with their indie label Spring Hollow Records. In 2005, they released a house concert recording aptly named “Opposites Attract.”
Later that same year, they founded Crossroads – a noted, acoustic listening room in their hometown of Winnsboro. Before hitting the road full time in June 2009, the couple spent three-and-a-half “amazing years” hosting weekly concerts by national touring artists on the Crossroads stage. Though no longer theirs, the venue continues to this day, and Adler & Hearne are proud to have worn the ‘presenter’s hat’ and now happily bear the title of Crossroads’ official ‘Artists in Residence.’
Returning to Nashville (the city where they first met), Adler & Hearne made their debut studio recording “To The Heart,” released in 2009 and at one point during 2010 named among the Top 20 releases by the Folk DJ community. The couple’s 2012 release “Adler & Hearne Live At Eddie’s Attic,” showcases songs from a June 2011 concert on the legendary stage in Decatur, GA, and features special guest Michael Johnson with whom they co-billed on that summer night.
Adler & Hearne’s music has grown deep roots in the sandy soil and piney woods of their Spring Hollow Organic Song Farm. The duo’s musical formative years share common experiences in folk, gospel and classical music – organic influences that inform their singing and songwriting. But the subject matter of their songs knows no bounds, nor does their musical style. Their live sets range from crooning songs of love and longing, losing and finding – to covering touchy subjects with unexpected musical overtones – to camping it up with modern day spirituals steeped in dry wit.
