Head for The Foothills
Acoustic trio plays Puckett’s Saturday
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.
