The Neighbors’ is a bluegrass band located in the foothills of western North Carolina. We play traditional and modern bluegrass with a twist of folk, country, blues, and rock and roll. They use traditional bluegrass instruments to play many styles and types of music. Bob Henson is our lead singer and guitar player. Gary Saunders sings harmony and plays banjo. Todd McCloud plays bass and sings harmony. Rick Everhardt plays mandolin.

The group has made several local television appearances and has been on syndicated and internet radio. “The Neighbors” were invited and performed at the Bronzewound Showcase at the 2008 IBMAs in Nashville, TN.

“The Neighbors” have completed an enjoyable five years at Merlefest; 2009 through 2013. Our sets have included the Walker Center, Plaza, Creekside, and Welcome stages. We also had a great time entertaining the kids at Boomer and Moravian Falls Elementary School for the Merlefest schools Outreach program. Some of the tunes and pictures from our five years at Merlefest can be viewed by checking out You Tube and also on Facebook.

For the last four years the band has provided the music for the outdoor drama at the Crossnore School in Crossnore, NC. The show is called ‘Miracle on the Mountain’ and chronicles the life of Mary Martin Sloop who founded the Crossnore School. A CD of soundtrack tunes was recently completed and is now available through the school.

Time Sawyer is coming to Talia Espresso on Saturday August 23.  Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door.  Doors open at 6 pm with the show kicking off at 7 pm.  Tickets are available online at www.heartoffolk.com, at Talia Espresso, or by calling 336-990-0746.

Time Sawyer is interested in “real people and real songs” and that’s just what the listener finds in their music – a sense of realness. Time Sawyer blends a grassroots feel with heart-felt lyrics to put on a high-energy, entertaining show.

The folk rock band’s name reflects the pull between the past and the future. The character Tom Sawyer evokes the rural background and love of home that the four band members, who all hail from the rolling foothills of Elkin, North Carolina, share. Time is a muse for songwriting; it’s the thread that runs through life, bringing new experiences, giving us a sense of urgency, while still connecting us with our past.

Lead vocalist Sam Tayloe and lead guitarist Kurt Layell recorded an acoustic EP together in 2010, but the addition in 2011 of Houston Norris, on banjo, and Clay Stirewalt, on drums, allowed them to create a richer sound at their live performances and on their albums.

Time Sawyer’s first album, “Time for a Change”, placed high on WNCW’s list of Top 20 Regional Albums of 2011. Each subsequent album has demonstrated growth, with more skillful instrumentation and more sophisticated arrangement, all while retaining the honesty and directness that has been a hallmark of their music from the start.

The memorable lyrics and strong melodies result in songs that will stay in your head long after the music stops.  Time Sawyer continues to develop a loyal and growing fan base. Whether they’re playing in an intimate coffee shop or a large outdoor festival, their goal is to forge a face-to-face connection with the audience so that they become friends who happen to be fans.
