You will be enthralled when you see this lovely lady rappin’ on a suitcase kick drum with one foot and tappin’ on a tambourine with the other; all the while, hands on her guitar and mouth on her harp. On top of that, Laura then adds sweet sugary vocals to her acoustic Folk-Grass mix while giving energy and presence to capture your attention.

This talented musician launched her solo career in 2011, performing up and down the east coast. With her original ideas and talented executions this one woman band is sure to dazzle any audience. Laura Thurston has her own unique style from a vintage era that will enliven you and have you feelin fine.

The Farmhouse Ghost

March 3 | Studio Brew


The Farmhouse Ghost is a band. Singer/Songwriters, Drew Plowman on acoustic guitar and JB Forrester on bass, like to write songs about mamas, trees and whiskey. Drew looks an awful lot like Justin Bieber, it's kind of sad. J.B. is Papabear, and he likes his porridge hot. Cepheus is from another universe, and he plays the drums. He met Drew and JB at Ike's Wednesday night bluegrass jam. Kris has a guitar pedal that plays radio waves. He used to be Drew's boss at a call center in Virginia. They play a variety of covers that should please any listener, fused between well-crafted originals that will make you laugh, dance and cry....well maybe not cry, but check 'em out. You won't be disappointed.
