A Concert Celebrating Veterans and the Arts
Drawing on traditional folk, country, R&B, and spirituals, The War and Treaty have earned praise for their dynamic and passionate performances. Named Americana Music Awards 2019 Emerging Act of the year, this husband-and-wife duo of Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Blount will dazzle in their debut at Merchant Hall, performing songs from their two acclaimed albums, Healing Tide and Hearts Town. The powerhouse couple brings their very relatable struggles to their music including Trotter’s battle with PTSD as an Army Veteran. Their song “Five More Minutes” stresses their uplifting message of staying the course and not giving up. Don’t miss “one of Nashville’s most thrilling new acts” (Rolling Stone magazine).
