Acous­tic trio plays Puckett’s Satur­day

Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - MUSIC - STAFF RE­PORT

Last sum­mer, Paul Had­field and Vin­cent Beasley be­gan try­ing out ma­te­rial at open mics around town. Pos­i­tive au­di­ence re­sponse led to a num­ber of fall gigs at Tre­mont Tav­ern, Cam­bridge Square and Feed Co. Ta­ble & Tav­ern.

Bassist Tony Nee­ley joined them last month. To­gether, the trio brings a wealth of per­for­mance experience to the stage. Chat­tanoogans can check out this new trio on Satur­day, Feb. 3, when they play Puckett’s, 2 W. Aquar­ium Way, at 8 p.m.

Had­field has been per­form­ing since he was 11 years old. Orig­i­nally from Ken­tucky, he fronted the band Paul Had­field & the McCoys. He’s played River­bend and Night­fall and has done record­ing projects in Nashville with Dolly Par­ton’s pro­ducer, Kent Wells. Had­field also serves as the wor­ship leader at Clear Creek Church.

Beasley is a clas­si­cally trained multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist who con­trib­utes fid­dle, man­dolin, do­bro and back­ground vo­cals. He draws from years of per­for­mance experience in a va­ri­ety of styles – rock bands, blue­grass groups, even a univer­sity sym­phony.

Nee­ley is a sea­soned bass player who has per- formed with artists Matt Adler, Pa­trick May­berry and Jake Leg Stom­pers, and recorded at stu­dios such as The Par­lor (Nashville), 800 East (At­lanta), and Splen­did Stu­dios (San An­to­nio).

He is pas­sion­ate about lead­ing wor­ship and has served at churches and Chris­tian camps across the United States. In ad­di­tion to his mu­sic, he is an ed­u­ca­tor and pub­lished au­thor.

Had­field’s song­writ­ing and the group’s mu­sic reg­u­larly draw com­par­isons to no­table Ameri cana/coun­try singers like Ja­son Is­bell, Sturgill Simp­son or Chris Stapleton.

Seat­ing for their show be­gins at 7 p.m. be­fore the per­for­mance at 8.
