Preview: Leland Sundries, Ramblin' Andy - Slim's


Brooklyn based Leland Sundries borrows the nostalgia of generations who lived and loved before us and maintains their sweet remind with the jangle of folk rock guitars and the gravity of mellow baritone Nick Loss-Eaton. Their collection of songs presents Americana as if holding a pen to paper and listing that which they hold dear. In the lines they form, stories and melodies drift like clouds across a lifetime of skies which are colored neither blue nor gray, calm nor turbulent...just recalled with fondness and awe.

Setting out on a seven show run late February, Leland Sundries makes two stops in our neck of the woods. Wednesday March 4th at Slim's in Raleigh, and Thursday March 5th at Mystery Brewing in Hillsborough, a spot which continually makes a name for itself with their award winning craft brews and for bring a steady stream of talented Americana and folk rock artists from points unknown to entertain the locals.

Traveling with Leland Sundries is the crooner Ramblin' Andy whose call and warble is akin to the roots of country yet sophisticated enough to move to the city. -- @carrboroninja
