Bart Crow landed in Charlotte over the past weekend for a fun Saturday night show…
Austin based singer and songwriter Bart Crow brought his band along for their very first trip to North Carolina last weekend. A brief run down the east coast from New York City, to Washington D.C. and eventually Charlotte, saw Crow and his crew invade Puckett’s Farm Equipment for another entertaining show.
Rising country artist Mickey Lamantia, who was named one of Rolling Stone top newcomers to know back in January, got the evening started with his songs mixed between a few crowd favorite covers.
Bart Crow entered next from the side door and jumped into his set which spanned his entire collection of albums from Finally… to The Parade and everything in between. A receptive crowd saw some take to a makeshift dance floor in front of the stage and many were singing right along.
A few songs into his set, Crow wished a couple in attendance a happy anniversary before dedicating Dandelion, the title track to his 2012 release, to the pair. A nice moment and connection between Crow and his fans from the stage.
The roughly 90 minute set allowed those in attendance to get a good feel for Crow the performer, backed by a solid band featuring lead and bass guitar, drums and a pedal steel. All combining for a sound fitting to his own style, not imitating but forging its own way into and through the music scene.
Crow himself was once a Rolling Stone artist to know over two years ago and it was nice to see the gratitude and appreciation both he and Lamantia showed for one another. Sharing the stage along each of the previous stops for this brief tour, both were complimentary of the other and appeared to have a good working relationship.
Previously playing Charlotte solo in March of 2014, the return of Bart Crow with his full band was a welcome site and one we hope doesn’t take another four years to see again.
