Greetings Mill Creek Friends,
I hope you are all having the merriest of holiday festivities. I enjoy the egg nog myself (more nog than egg, of course).
So after all the presents are unwrapped, the tree half-destroyed by the four legged friends we call pets, the shock sustained by stepping on the scale the next morning, and scrambling to budget for the next several months of huge credit card debt, be sure to save some merriment for Saturday the 27th.
Join us for our special musical guests Heartroot for a Pot Luck and a show.
Folk Americana duo Heartroot is a musical partnership made of multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriters Mindy Dillard and Eric McEuen.
Currently based in Berkeley, CA this pair of musical adventurers met in Portland, Oregon in 2010. Each moved there from the Southwest: Mindy from Salt Lake City, Utah and Eric from Albuquerque, New Mexico. They both grew up in a high desert landscape with a mountain vista nearby to explore. They discovered they have this in common as well as compatible tastes for harmony. This helps them cultivate dynamic and unique performances rich with joy and raw emotion. Their voices soar in tight harmonies to the highest peaks and dip down into the lowest valleys. They are not just storytellers, they are story makers. They seek to bring the audience into their stories at each concert, inspiring them to live their own stories boldly and passionately.
“The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure.” – Joseph Campbell
Heartroot plays a mix of originals, co-writes and co-curated covers they’ve collected and arranged from across the genres of contemporary and traditional folk, jazz, blues, soul and pop-rock. Throughout their performance the audience may hear guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, glockenspiel and a capella. They’ve honed their performance over the last 5 years, playing at coffeehouses, house concerts, festivals, farmers’ markets, churches and other small listening rooms across the US. During summer of 2014 they embarked on a successful 3-month tour of 7 states (NM, CO, UT, CA, OR, WA, ID) and British Columbia.

It’s been an exciting last couple weeks. For years I’ve been hoping for a mountain profile of the Palisades in the Alpinst Magazine. The Palisades are a region of high, steep and intimidating mountains just outside of Bishop. You can’t see them from town, but they’re close. We’re the closest brewery to the Palisades as the Clark’s nutcracker flies. It’s an amazing coincidence that our brewery opened on the same weekend that the article about the Palisades came out. Doug Robinson did an excellent job of capturing the beautiful essence of the Palisade region of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the passionate characters who spend time up there. Some of them inspired the name of our brewery.
