Ryan Ward will be playing at O'Mainnin's pub on Thursday, July 24th at 10pm. Ward is a talented, eclectic singer/songwriter, with an endless passion for music. Nineteen years ago, Ryan picked up his first acoustic guitar at the age of 8. Now, 29, he has incorporated many styles from artists that range from Lindsey Buckingham, Stephen Stills, to Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page. Ward started writing songs at the age of 17, but focused more stylistically on solving the puzzles of the guitar. Currently, Ward is focused on relaying his message through the vibrations of the strings from his guitar and lyric content. "Escape Into Reality" is his debut album and select songs are available online at stores, such as: iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, Amazon mp3, and many other. This compilation is a blend of acoustic, pop, folk, and rock. Ryan states: "I cannot categorize my music, I guess you have to listen and decide for yourself!" Whatever genre it may be, Ryan Ward's music is not to be missed! Show starts at 10pm!

July 22, 2014
Andy Vaughan & the Driveline perform live at 620 State in historic downtown Bristol on July 25. Pure country music and heartfelt honky tonk, delivered with soul, grit, energy and passion. A classic sound for modern times. In the current landscape of mainstream country music, the lines between country, pop, and arena rock are often blurry. But listen to Andy Vaughan & The Driveline, and you'll hear the sounds of Bakersfield, Texas shuffles, hard driving outlaw honky tonk, and "tear in your beer" ballads.
