Live music returns to Bynum Front Porch on February 19

Bynum, NC – On February 19 at 7 pm, live music returns to Bynum Front Porch with a special indoor performance by Gabe Pelli and Will Ridenour, otherwise known as Grand Shores. Join us for our first show of 2022 LIVE inside the warm and toasty historic Bynum General Store. This will be a FREE, in-person event. You do not want to miss this.

Grand Shores is a celebration of musical subtlety, a generous hybrid of old and new styles captured in understated tones, often verging on the ambient and instrumental.

While lulling listeners into a state of serenity, Gabriel Pelli (Onyx Club Boys, The Old Ceremony) and Will Ridenour (Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba, Zegota) move nimbly across musical traditions. Blending Americana with West African folk, and with instrumentation ranging from fiddle to kora, Grand Shores fuses their original sound with a contemporary aesthetic that draws widely from folk and indie, jazz and punk.

A collaborative project out of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Grand Shores released their first album, Tradewinds, in 2020 on Robust Records. The album was recorded in a single-room, 100 year-old chapel located in rural North Carolina. Such a setting produces a warmth in the recordings that mirrors the feeling of seeing Grand Shores live. A Grand Shores performance stokes the fires of familiarity, inviting listeners to a private experience.

Masks are required inside the Bynum General Store.
