Nashville-via-Alaska-via-California-via-Columbus songwriter returns for hometown gigs in advance of new album

For the past 30 years, Nashville songwriter and former Haynes Boy Tim Easton has been playing the same black Gibson J-45 acoustic guitar, which he named Paco. To mark the anniversary, Easton recorded a solo acoustic album direct to lacquer on a portable lathe in Bristol, Virginia. Paco & the Melodic Polaroids will be out in April, but get a sneak peek at this solo show at Natalie's. Or, the night before, catch Easton at a rare Beetkeepers show at Dick's Den. (Don't miss it)
