Eli Conley
Eli Conley
Eli Conley's voice shifts deftly from country choirboy to soulful croon at the turn of a phrase. This Richmond-born songwriter has been featured in the Huffington Post and the Advocate, and opened for Grammy-winner Kimya Dawson. Now based in California, Eli joins us for an afternoon at The Camel on a tour celebrating the release of his sophomore album, Strong and Tender. The album features modern day folk songs for misfits, exploring themes of longing, loss, collective resistance, and the joys and struggles of living a creative life. Eli will be accompanied by frequent collaborator Joel Price on mandolin, violin, and harmonies.

“Oh what gorgeous, soulful music!” raves Laura Love, “It knocked me off my easy chair. Eli Conley’s writing and singing are exquisite.”
Molly Payne and the Mistakes
Molly Payne and the Mistakes
Molly Payne and the Mistakes is a collaboration of Richmond musicians engaged in various pursuits, but all of whom appreciate blue blooded American country classics. The group plays favorites from Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, The Judds, and other country legends, as well as hits from more modern Americana artists like Gillian Welch, Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, and Margo Price.

Stephen Kuester plays his soulful pedal steel guitar with Jackass Flats, Old Dominion Playboys, and the Red Light Rodeo All-Stars. His brother, bassist Matt Kuester, tours internationally with Daniel Romano. Molly and Kevin are thrilled to have Tara Dillard of The Folly's tender fiddle adding emotional depth to their songs, and Matt Coyle of Buttertub's steady, sensitive rhythms keeping time.


Founding members Molly Payne and Kevin Culbert perform as a duo when not enjoying the fuller sound of the big band. You can catch them every Wednesday with the Come Hears at Cary St. Cafe, the hippie bar that has become their Cheers and home away from home.
Tyler Hughes & Sam Gleaves
Tyler Hughes & Sam Gleaves
Tyler Hughes & Sam Gleaves play old time country music and newly written songs from the Appalachian mountains. Tyler and Sam’s programs feature fiddle and banjo hoedowns, close mountain harmonies, stories of all kinds, Carter Family-inspired autoharp and guitar, country gospel songs, lonesome ballads and flatfoot dancing. As a duo, Sam and Tyler also perform contemporary songs that tell stories from today's Appalachia, which can be heard on Sam's critically acclaimed album Ain't We Brothers. Tyler and Sam have performed at many venues throughout the eastern United States and on programs such as West Virginia Public Radio's Mountain Stage and Lexington, Kentucky's Red Barn Radio (broadcast on Kentucky Educational Television).
