Live Music

Great beer and live music—from local artists to national tours (pictured: Drive-By Truckers)—combine at Sierra Nevada.

Live music and craft beer under the Carolina sky.

Good music and great beer have always gone hand in hand, and our music spaces in Mills River are the perfect places to showcase them both. We host live music as it ought to be experienced—under the open sky with a beer in hand! Come out to our outdoor amphitheater and enjoy the best rhythm, blues, and brews Western North Carolina has to offer.

Dark Water Rising

To the members of Dark Water Rising, kinship is essential. Ties of kinship within the band’s Native American communities helped to establish the band in 2008. Today, those same Native roots provide the framework for the band’s sound, which they describe as “rocky soul.”

The band attributes their style of playing and singing to a combination of influences, which range from attending Sunday morning worship services to absorbing the diverse styles and tones of artists like Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, the BeeGees, and Lynrd Skynard. DWR explores various themes of life — love, heartbreak, sacrifice, celebration, despair, pain — all while expressing and evoking sincere emotion on issues affecting contemporary Native American communities.
