The Bloomery Presents: Singer-Songwriter Aaron Davis
“Aaron Davis is an essential force in the Americana roots music scene in Wyoming” (KHOL 89.1FM),
Kentucky native Aaron Davis stages his songs with poetic amplitude and a deep well of old-time and modern sonic textures—voice, acoustic & resonator & lap steel guitars, open back banjo, harmonica, cigar box percussion, and tailor-made phrase sampling and analog simulations. Aaron is chiefly known as co-founder of national touring act Screen Door Porch, as engineer-producer-session player at his ThreeHearted Recording Studio in Hoback, Wyoming, and for the eclectic quartet Aaron Davis & The Mystery Machine. Aaron’s solo shows are well versed in both off-the-cuff and intricate arrangements, working the lesser-worn corners of the American musical fabric through an unconventional lens. The downhome fusion of roots-inspired Americana bridges alt-country, mid-century slide blues, story folk, gypsy grass, Western swing, and groovy roots rock—often bridged with stories of unsung characters.
Nearly two decades of touring the country and staying true to the write-and-record troubadour sensibility has led the press to describe Aaron as “a combination that goes down like top-shelf bourbon” (Austin Chronicle) with "a searing slide guitar" (Country Weekly), and “a particularly standout approach that mixes poetry, groove and roughness” (Lonestar Time). Recognizing Aaron’s twelve-album discography, the “truly phenomenal songwriter” (Americana UK) with “lyrical prowess” (JH Buckrail) was one of two composers in Wyoming to be awarded a Performing Arts Music Fellowship from the National Endowment of the Arts—“a merit-based honor for an artist’s work in their field.”
He has been fortunate to share bills with many of his heroes including Wilco, Willie Nelson, Jason Isbell, Buddy Guy, Sam Bush, Brian Wilson, Steve Earle, Grace Potter, Sarah Jarosz, Justin Townes Earle, and James McMurtry. Most recently, Aaron embarked on once-in-a-lifetime recording endeavor—The WyoFolk Project—in which he produced-recorded-mixed a compilation album featuring fourteen of Wyoming's celebrated songwriters performing new works at his studio. His new EP, Medicine, features four original songs bound by medicinal themes, recorded in Austin with longtime collaborators.
Aaron will be joined by longtime collaborator David Bundy (fretless/fretted bass, vocal harmony), who is also a member of Aaron Davis & the Mystery Machine and Screen Door Porch. David is an in-demand sideman, music teacher, and is the primary songwriter-vocalist for rock band Ticket to Space.
The Venue: The Bloomery
Nestled amidst vast Wyoming landscapes, The Bloomery‘s farm, flowers, and beloved once-wild Wyoming horses offer a scenic backdrop for outdoor summer concerts. With its sprawling fields and rustic charm, it embodies the spirit of The West, creating the perfect intimate backdrop for incredible nights. Experience music, Wyoming-style!
The Bloomery is a family farm that lies just west of Casper, Wyoming. We produce field grown seasonal flowers while continually striving to learn the best ways to care for the soil, the abundant wildlife, and the native vegetation.
We love listening to music as much as we love growing flowers. Both bring beauty and hope into our lives, and it brings us great joy to share talented musicians with our Wyoming community. Add locally prepared cuisine and beer, and the sites and sounds of nature to a summer evening and the night is just about as perfect as it can be.
Come visit the farm and experience outdoor music, Wyoming style!
