On Wednesday, May 8th, Hermit Woods Winery will welcome touring acoustic duo Lance and Lea to The Loft Listening Room stage for the very first time for a unique “Loft Living Room Session” show. Hosted by local singer-songwriter Katie Dobbins, this promises to be an intimate evening of music and conversation. Guests will feel like these artists are right in their own living room while enjoying a nice night out including a full menu by Sweet Mercy and delicious Hermit Woods wine. Tickets, which include a complimentary pre-show wine tasting, range from $12 to $18 and are available on the Hermit Woods Winery website or for purchase at the door.

The evening will begin with a short opening set by award-winning New Hampshire artist Katie Dobbins, who will then invite Lance and Lea to join her on the couch for a couple of songs and a conversation about their music and what life is like on the road. The evening will culminate with a highly anticipated performance by this acclaimed Nashville duo.

About Lance & Lea:

Lea grew up Amish, listening to country music & singing in church & Lance grew up playing in a

rock band in the Texas club scene. The two met randomly in Nashville, TN & after their first

songwriting session together, and formed the duo, Lance and Lea. Marked by old-school country/rock influences with Texas blues guitar, storytelling lyrics & soothing harmonies, their collaborative genius is on fire, with over 500 songs written. Their first album, “There Goes My Heart,” with Grammy award-winning producer Paul Worley, was released in late 2018 & their music has garnered airplay in the UK, Ireland, and in Music City, Nashville, Tennessee.

The duo won “New Artist Of The Year” at the 2019 iHeart Radio Rocky Mountain Country Music

Awards. “There Goes My Heart” was also nominated for Album Of The Year at the 2020 iHeart

Radio RMCMA’s. In 2020, the couple raised over $16K on a fan-funded crowdfunding campaign for their album “Great Big World,” which was released in early 2021. That same year, in the middle of a pandemic, they booked a 31-date Backyard PopUp Tour all over the US, covering 26 states & over 12,000 miles.

In 2021 they completed an 80-date, four-month-long Summer Tour, playing to even more fans

across the US – this time traveling in a vintage RV, aka “The Honeybee,” and putting on 24,000

miles through 38 states. The duo released their album “Songs From The Road” in late 2022 and completed an 80-day Summer tour in 2023. 2024 is set to be a landmark year with the release of their double album “Boots & Blues,” which is a reflection of each of their musical roots. To celebrate the album, the duo will embark on another 80-date tour across the country. Over 100,000 tour miles and counting…

About Katie Dobbins:

Award-winning singer-songwriter and light warrior Katie Dobbins seeks to share honest music that captivates listeners and brings light to the darkness. With a mastery of storytelling and the heart of a poet, this soulful songstress captures elements of life and relationships in ways that lift the spirit and challenge the soul. Her album There Is Light, produced by multi-award-winning producer Sean McLaughlin of 37′ Productions, was awarded Album of the Year at the 2021 Limelight Music Awards. Her music has been featured on prominent radio stations like The Rivetr and “Boston’s Hottest Country,” with host Carolyn Kruse raving, “Sweet but bold, Katie’s voice is reminiscent of one of her heroes, Jewel, but only deeper… A fearless spirit with a gentle touch.” Dobbins’ fall single Wild, written on the rocks at Marginal Way in Maine, sings of wild love that compels her to step outside of her comfort zone and toward the wild dreams in her heart. The track was mixed and mastered by Emmy-nominated producer Brian Coombes of Rocking Horse Studio (NH), whom Katie also produced her latest anthem Giants with, and whom she is currently recording more music with to be released this year.
