Music and art are held dear to our hearts here at En Root House. Since opening we've had the opportunity to connect and collaborate with the local arts and music scene as well as traveling artists and musicians who happen to find their way here.
Here are just a few examples of the magic we've encountered thus far.
October of last year En Root House hosted artist Ryder Richards during his month long artist residency with ARC. We were lucky to be involved with this great local non-profit organization during their first year. Having Ryder at the house was a superb experience. Get a glimpse into his residency here https://www.arcresidency.org/past/ .
Roots of a Rebellion (live acoustic set) & Live recording of Open Mic Spotlight. ROAR is a Nashville based reggae band that played a small acoustic set for us and all the other guests one Sunday morning. There were pancakes, coffee, good vibes, and Heather Leigh Holt from local podcast Open Mic Spotlight recorded her first live audience recording of the podcast. You can listen to it here
Bombadil (live living room set) . This was one for the books. One of those most magical nights you always hope for. Bombadil, a wonderful band from North Carolina, played an intimate set to a small crowd in the living room. The show was organized by Kristy Graves of Chattanooga House Shows .
Jeff's mural exchange. We offer a small ongoing residency via ARC for backyard murals. Artist Jeff Niesen showed up on our porch one day ready to paint. He's been the first taker for the mural exchange and has chosen to tackle the entire back fence panel in the backyard. He's still in the process and has about two more weeks to go. We can't wait till it's done!
