Put on your cowboy hats & boots as Wine Country is coming back to Folktale on April 27th! Join them for the next installment of KTOM’s “Wine Country” Concert Series featuring Craig Campbell! Craig Campbell is one of Country’s brightest rising stars who launched onto the Country music scene in 2011 and continues to exist in a perfect sweet spot between tradition and modernity. Craig grew up in a strong Southern Baptist home, fell in love early with the sounds of Country radio, and built a foundation not just as a singer and performer, but as a songwriter. It was a conversation with Luke Bryan, for whom he once played keyboard, that really helped him set his priorities clear. “Luke said, ‘man you need to be writing songs, and you need to be writing with different people, twice a day’”. “That’s where you can define yourself as an artist, with people writing songs that tell your story. And nobody is going to sing them better than you.’” That dedication to the craft made him not only understand the importance of crafting songs like the fan-favorite “Tomorrow Tonight” with trusted collaborators, but also to keep writing, constantly. It’s an ethos that […]

Folktale Winery & KRML Radio are excited to present SUR Live in the Vines! SUR came to life during a nomadic journey through some of California’s most wild spaces. Frustrated by the confines of Los Angeles, Monterey-bred musician/producer Zack Arnett (formally from Fire in the Hamptons) built a makeshift studio in the back of an RV and set out on a two-month-long journey. While out on the road, Arnett began creating a sound both gritty and melodic, nuanced and volatile, reflective and deeply life-affirming. For Arnett—who’s also a visual artist, poet, and self-described American medicinal farmer—the music of SUR arose from an entirely uncalculated burst of creativity. With the release of Savage Beast, Arnett hopes that his own fascination with the natural world might awaken a similar sensitivity in others. “I think there’s a real need for us as a civilization to get back to appreciating the beauty and the simplicity of nature, instead of just being so desensitized and having our heads buried in our phones all the time,” he says. Opening the evening is local band American Trashbird. An amalgamation of the American soundscape; casually blending synth and folk, blues and pop, jam and roots into Monterey Bird Rock, […]
