Way back in the beginning Aaron Berg played some music with some friends in the garden. This ushered in, what was to become, an annual garden concert series. He is finally coming back!
Aaron Berg (stage name, Mountainwalker) is an American songwriter, performer, and recording artist based in Nashville USA with roots in New York City and South Carolina. His father has owned and operated the independent record store Horizon Records since 1975.
Originally, a bassist, Berg attended the jazz conservatory at the New School University in Greenwich Village, New York City (studying with Larry Grenadier, Cecil Bridgewater, Reggie Workman, among others) before picking up a guitar and finding his voice as a songwriter and singer. Prior to moving to Nashville, Berg became deeply engaged in Hip Hop music and culture, releasing a mixtape ( ‘Public Works’ ) and two self-produced albums ( ‘American Rhapsody and ‘Parlor Songs’ ) with DJ/producer Coach K (currently scheduled for re-mix/master, re-release). Also a published author (Midnight Shining Sun) and a self-taught painter, Berg has toured nationally and released multiple studio albums.
Also coming back to the garden is the wonderful duo of Ella & Mary! If you’ve caught a performance of theirs at YAM, on the Skunk stage, or last year here in the garden we know you’ll want to see them again. Get here early to enjoy their lovely voices!
The show is free but we do ask for donations for the musicians. They have rent to pay and need to eat too, right?!
As always, kids and dogs (on a leash) are welcome to attend. Bring snacks and beverages to keep everyone happy and something to sit on. We also recommend bug spray this time of year, because it’s the South.
