Nathan Bowles is an alchemist, and his tool is the banjo. Blending traditional Appalachian finger picking with meandering raga and drone, he transmutes sound waves into medicine for the soul.
His solo works (albums A Bottle, A Buckeye; Nansemond; and most recently, 2016's Whole & Cloven) stand on their own, but he's also earned renown for the company he keeps. He is the drummer in Steve Gunn's touring band (yes, that was him banging the skins on CBS Sunday Morning), a band member of Pelt and Black Twig Pickers, the banjo picker on excellent new records from Michael Chapman and Jake Xerxes Fussell, and a loyal friend and sideman to the late legend Jack Rose.
On May 24th, Nathan Bowles brings his alchemy to Charlotte for an intimate living room set at Recover Brands (1518 Bryant Street, 28208; near Pinky's and Rhino Market).
