LIVE! in NWA: Route 358 rings in New Year

LIVE! in NWA: Route 358 rings in New Year

“Route 358’s folk style and vocals feel deep woods at times and cinematic pop at others while remaining grounded in their acoustic roots,” one reviewer said in 2021.

The band — family trio Jodi, Jade and Derrick Mears — also won the NewSong Showcase for their single “Redemption” in 2021 and released their sophomore LP, “Peregrination I,” in September. They’ll bring their “bending and blending” of folk, country, bluegrass, rock and pop to Gotahold Brewing, 409 W. Van Buren in Eureka Springs, for a New Year’s Eve show at 6 p.m. today.
