On Sunday, April 23 at 4 p.m. FENCE presents a free family concert with local band Tina & Her Pony.
Tina & Her Pony are an Indie Appalachian folk duo from Asheville, N.C. Tina Collins (tenor banjo, tenor ukulele, guitar, vocals) and Quetzal Jordan (cello, guitar, vocals) met in Asheville in 2009. They spent two years holed up in the high desert mountain town of Taos, New Mexico, making music and friends, and becoming one of the iconic artist colony’s most beloved performing acts.
After an 18 month tour spanning the entire United States and a bit of Canada, they relocated to Asheville. Tina & Her Pony released their full length, self-titled debut album in March 2012. The album was mixed and mastered in Oakland, Calif. with Myles Boise (The Tigerlilies; Kronos Quartet) and features trumpeter Chris Grady (also featured on Tom Waits’ Mule Variations). In addition, the group released its six-track EP “Walkin’ in My Sleep” in March 2012. The sound on the EP has a playful, low-fi quality that highlights Collins’ and Jordan´s magnetic synergy as a standalone duo.
Refreshments will be served following the performance. This event is made possible by the Kirby Endowment at the Polk County Community Foundation. FENCE is located at 3381 Hunting Country Road in Tryon. For more information about this or upcoming events call 828-859-9021 or visit fence.org.
