Saturday, November 19, 7:00pm-9:00pm

906 Ridgley Rd, Murfreesboro, TN

Cedar Glade Brews

Nashville duo Haunted Like Human delves into inspired songwriting, sparse arrangements, and frisson-inducing harmonies that mark their music. With a background in poetry and prose, Dale Chapman’s granular focus on language is similar to Cody Clark’s background in classical guitar, where each note carries its own weight. Limned with nostalgia, soaked in Southern gothic lore, the duo meticulously assembles songs to preserve the spirit of the stories they tell.
