    This great little room is a hidden gem - fab sound and plenty of old, falling apart chairs with big couches in the front rows...

    ERIC SOMMER @ 185 KING ST February 19 Eric Sommer comes to Brevard, North Carolina for an evening of songs and guitars... He's played through the area many times, always to very appreciative and growing audiences, and now, on Thursday, February 19th, he will be at 185 King Street for the entire evening. Without a doubt one of the finest, most versatile players on the road today, Eric is a mash of styles that cover slide, finger-style, pure blues groove and dynamic improv approaches he calls "no fear playing". Eric's song "Europe, Europe" (Rainy Day Karma, 2013) has received 3.5 million plays and downloads in the EU, and "Sunny Afghanistan" has become a favorite of US ARMED FORCES worldwide. A student of Jeff Beck, Bert Jansch, Davy Graham and Steve Howe (YES) and steeped in the acoustic traditions of Doc Watson and Merle Travis, watching this guitar great will "make you jump out of your seat and hollar for joy" says Bugs Madison, in an interview for UK Melody Mag, 2012. Make a point of putting this date on your calendar and do whatever you need to do to see this remarkable singer, writer, storyteller and guitar player.
