Our performers this month will be Jennifer Barger & Highbeams!
Jennifer Barger is a local artist to Atlanta, GA. She is part of a sister act (Jenny & Sky) and through that they have released an EP of original music titled “Nonsense” by Jenny&Sky in July, 2018. With her sister, they made it to the finals of the Undiscovered Artist Showcase at Madlife Stage&Studio in Woodstock, GA, opened for Irish singer-songwriter Keith Harkin in 2017, and performed with Kate Coleman in her CD release show “Tremors of My PAST” in April, 2018, with another release show again with Kate and the trio group Highbeams in October, 2018. Some of her biggest inspirations in music and songwriting are The Wailin Jennys, Priscilla Ahn, and Molly Parden, and she has often received the compliment that her voice and style resemble that of Alison Krauss. Jazzy, bluegrass, easy-going, simple and sweet and full of a joy and passion for the art of music!
Accompanying her are violinist and brother, Joshua Barger, and vocalist/accomplished musician and sister, Bess Miller.
Highbeams are a trio of brothers that play emotive, high energy Folk Rock. Since their first show on New Years Eve 2012, the band has captured audiences all over the Southeast with their warm, personable stage presence and rich three-part harmonies. Highbeams have traveled all over the U.S. performing hundreds of shows every year; including opening slots for acts like Vertical Horizon, Chase Bryant, Col Bruce Hampton, and the Grammy nominated duo, Brothers Osborne.
The band constantly adds to their extensive body of work, all released through their own record label: Blanket Fort. Today the band continues to tour behind their newest album, Keep Meaning It, and persists in making the most out of every opportunity to share their dream with the world.
Highbeams are Adam Pendlington, Ian Pendlington, and Stephen Quinn
