Camp Verde AZ (August 13, 2021) – Join us on Thursday, August 26th from 5:30-7:00 pm in Camp Verde Community Library’s Fireside Room for our new free Special Concert Series, a spin-off of Music in the Stacks round-robin style concerts that take have taken place at the library for nearly 5 years.
Music in the Stacks Special Concert Series is a showcase of local and national musicians who entertain regularly in Northern Arizona. There will be one band or solo artist that plays for the duration of the concert with a different artist playing each month, on the 4th Thursday.
August’s concert features nationally touring artist Ryan Biter. Ryan was raised and currently resides in Flagstaff, AZ at 7000 feet. His music echoes the expansive soul of The Southwest. The sound is equal parts rural Americana, spectacled college town hipster, mountain bluegrass, and new age funk beatbox drum circle. It feels like your favorite pair of jeans; utterly unique, yet enjoyably familiar.
Armed with expertly crafted songs, percussive guitar playing, and an affinity for beatboxing and loop pedals, Biter delivers a concert that is commanding yet intimate. He has a unique way of making a coffee shop feel like a concert hall and a club feel like an intimate house show.
Ryan can be found sharing his music with audiences all around the country. He was the 2013 winner of Northern Arizona’s Got Talent, and his music has been featured on National and Internationally syndicated radio stations. Ryan has also shared the stage with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and was a featured performer at the 2019 Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival.
