Post War is a New Folk outfit built on the belief that eight simple things done well is the best way to tell any story. Forming in June of 2012 between guitarists Jimmie Monroe Gregory, Brett Joiner and front man Tyler Nafe, they quickly fleshed out acoustic songs, and searched for the right elements to add to their emotionally resonant material. After collaborating with a series of talented musicians, Post War was excited to complete their line up with the classically trained Dana McCollum on violin and crystal clear vocals, and the young talent Harrison Jones armed with a host of drums and percussion.

There is a $2 suggested parking donation, and any other donations are graciously accepted!
