Events at the Bross
Live at the Bross – Clem Snide POSTPONED
The March 10th event will be rescheduled due to unforeseen circumstances.
Fall 2023 (TBD)
The first night of the 2023 season will ring in with brilliant songwriter Eef Barzelay, whose fame as frontman of the indie rock trio Clem Snide has morphed into a varied solo career under the same moniker (taken from a character in several William S. Burrough novels). With a kaleidoscopic musical catalog ranging from 1998’s debut album You Were A Diamond, to the 2001 breakout The Ghost of Fashion (ranked 3rd best album of the year by Rolling Stone), to the fan-collaborated Songs We Made recordings as well as the recent and mesmerizing A Life In Song project, Eef’s unmistakeable voice and disarming lyrics led NPR to rate him “the most underrated songwriter in the business today, with a sneakily firm grasp on poignancy and humor”.
Eef’s 2017 cover of The Velvet Underground’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror” was featured in the soundtrack to The Handmaid’s Tale, and his 2015 rendition of Neil Young’s “Borrowed Tune” was highlighted in Cover Lay Down’s (Re)Covered In Folk – Neil Young: 45 Redefining Tracks From A Decade In Tribute.
His most recent album, produced by Scott Avett of the Avett Brothers, features members of The Avett Brothers, Band of Horses, Dashboard Confessional, and Old Crow Medicine Show.
Live at the Bross – Damien Jurado
with special guest Chris Pureka
August 2, 2022 CANCELLED
Due to a shoulder injury, Damien Jurado’s upcoming tour of the American Southwest has been cancelled. Advance ticket purchasers have been notified and refunded.
The Bross Hotel is thrilled to present the third in an intimate concert series with independent music stalwart Damien Jurado, whose prolific songwriting has stood the test of time with unassuming grace. Damien’s 25+ year career has ranged from his early releases on the iconic Sub Pop record label in the 1990s to his 17th (and soon to be 18th) studio album on his own Maraqopa Records, and he continues to enthrall with stories populated by ghosts, killers, cruel lovers, and the occasional UFO cult or false messiah. His past collaborations include Richard Swift of The Shins and The Black Keys, Moby, Dolorean, Josh Tillman, and English dance music group Faithless.
Opening for Damien is Portland-based Chris Pureka, whose versatile melding of folk, Americana and indie rock genres has garnered comparisons to Chan Marshall, Bruce Springsteen, and Patty Griffin. Over many years of touring on both sides of the Atlantic she has shared the stage with such diverse and esteemed artists as The Lumineers, Gregory Alan Isakov, The Cowboy Junkies, Haley Heynderickx, and Ani DiFranco.
Live at the Bross – The Barefoot Movement
July 17, 2022
Fresh off of their appearance at Music in the Mountains in Bayfield two days prior, energetic North Carolina band The Barefoot Movement will unplug for an intimate all-acoustic show in the historic Bross Hotel.
Acclaimed in the traditional, bluegrass and Americana genres, they have carved out an indelible space in the acoustic music scene since their 2011 debut album, Footwork. Their fresh sound combining dynamic vocals with fiddle, mandolin, upright bass, and guitar is infused with a captivating honesty.
The Barefoot Movement’s joyous and heartfelt live performances have garnered them fans nationwide and beyond, and earned them the 2014 IBMA Momentum Award for Band of the Year.
Live at the Bross – Tim Eriksen
April 9, 2022
The Bross is excited to present the first in an intimate concert series on Saturday, April 9th with internationally-recognized artist Tim Eriksen. A legend in folk music both in America and abroad, Tim’s incandescent vocals and multi-instrumental versatility rank amongst the best. From the heartbreaking to the rollicking, he weaves together a tapestry of shape note hymnals, ballads, traditional fiddle and banjo, Balkan love songs, and more. A contributor to the Academy Award-winning Cold Mountain soundtrack, Tim has also appeared on Mountain Stage and A Prairie Home Companion. As further testament to his range, he is often cited as the only performer to have shared a stage with both Kurt Cobain and Doc Watson.
Seating is EXTREMELY limited so reserve your seats early!

Bross Hotel B&B has officially raised my B&B standards and expectations because this was the most wonderful experience I have ever had. Amazing and sincere staff and the highlight has to be the chef breakfast every morning. You MUST stay here!
Perfect. The Bross is perfect in every way – beautiful rooms, great hosts and delicious breakfasts. A short trip over the mountains for us but a world away! Ideal location for walking to the businesses on the main street or over to the wonderful park.

Oh. My. Gosh. This place is amazing! The owners have thought of everything! The rooms are beautifully appointed, clean and comfortable. The sheets are heavenly! But the food! The food alone is worth the visit… we had pancakes with blueberry compote and lemon curd. So good! Suzanne and Mike are accommodating, helpful and pleasant. All of this is surprisingly affordable. If you’re looking for a lovely getaway, this is the place.
