About the event

Wild Eye Pub is pleased to present Anya Hinkle and Billy Cardine on Thursday, September 14, 2023 - as they kick off their Western US tour!

Anya Hinkle 

With vivid story telling, vibrant musicianship and arresting honesty, Asheville, NC-based songwriter Anya Hinkle’s music is steeped in the tones of folk and bluegrass and seasoned by travels across the world. A founding member of Asheville,NC-based bands Dehlia Low (Rebel Records) and Tellico (Organic Records), Anya released the first full-length album under her own name, “Eden And Her Borderlands,” in July 2021 on Organic Records. Hinkle won the 2019 Merle Fest Chris Austin Songwriting Competition and was runner-up in the 2022 International Acoustic Music Awards in 2022. Anya tours across the U.S., Japan and Europe. Just signed with Red Parlor Records, Anya will release her newest album, OCEANIA, in 2024, produced by legendary Irish producer Kevin Moloney (U2, Sinéad O’Connor) and featuring brilliant Irish guitarist John Doyle (Solas, Tim O’Brien, Joan Baez) and innovative slide guitarist Billy Cardine.

Billy Cardine 

Cardine’s patchwork of diverse musical influences contributes to his chameleonesque ability to fit in with whatever collaboration he joins on the stage, or in the studio.   He has performed at Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, the Ryman Auditorium and major festivals, such as Bonnaroo, Merlefest and Rockygrass.  As an internationally featured artist, he has toured in India, Japan, Europe and Canada.   Billy’s distinct voice on all things slide has lead him to collaborations with Led Zeppelin's own, John Paul Jones, world renowned, Edgar Meyer in his Porous Borders of Music, and alongside dobro king, Jerry Douglas, who said,  “Billy Cardine is an amazing Dobro player...He is fluent in everything that I do, and Josh Graves, and everybody that has come before. I got to be with him for a little while at Carnegie Hall for Edgar Meyer’s “Porous Borders”... I couldn’t have picked a better example for them of where the Dobro is now or what the possibilities are with the instrument.”
