Painted Wind visits Listening Lyrics Friday May 24, 2019 at 4:00PM

"Painted Wind" with Nancy Northrup and Mel Bearns visits us with their musical gifts they loves to share

We are an Americana duo that is steeped in traditional folk, bluegrass, country and blues, with a passion for artfully crafted songs and vocal harmonies.=

Painted Wind was formed out of a trio formerly known as Hickory Hollar. Nancy and Mel found common ground across a panorama featuring many distinct artists and genres and came together with the shared passion of crafting new music, and deftly interpreting classic covers.
