Ark. Times Musicians Showcase Round 2: 3 Penny Acre

Posted By on Thu, Feb 4, 2010 at 10:41 AM


Bayard Blain, Bernice Hembree and Bryan Hembree.

3 Penny Acre

Debut: 2008

From: Fayetteville

Members: Bayard Blain (guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, vocals), Bernice Hembree (upright bass, vocals), Bryan Hembree (guitar, brush bucket, vocals).

Albums: A self-titled album with another coming soon.

Bona fides: The band won “Best New Band” at the Northwest Arkansas Music Awards last year. When he's not playing with 3 Penny Acre, Blain works as a professional luthier. He counts Ezra Idlet, of Trout Fishing in America, and a number of other folk music standouts as his clients.

What's in a name: 3 Penny Acre is a reference to the Louisiana Purchase, which cost a little less than three cents and acre. The trio all grew up in the land covered by the Purchase —even Blain who's from Montana.

Up next: A house party at Good  Folk in Fayetteville on Friday and next week, dozens of performances at the Folk Alliance in Memphis. More here.


"Coal Mine Moonshine"
