    When:Sat, December 1, 2018, 6pm – 8pm

    Where: Peace Tree Brewing Co & Taproom, 107 W Main St, Knoxville, IA 50138,

    Description: Join us for live music in Knoxville on the first Saturday of the month! In December, we welcome Tennessee touring artist, Stephen Simmons, back to our taproom from 6-8pm! A road warrior with an audience on both sides of the Atlantic, Stephen Simmons has spent most of his adulthood on stage, playing songs in ten different countries along the way. Recorded with members of his touring band, A World Without explores a life lived on the run, taking a look at the intersection between art, commerce, love, and travel. The songs are equal parts biography and fiction, with Simmons shining a light on those who travel and create for a living. There are tracks about Americans crossing the country during the Gold Rush, about puritans making a voyage overseas, about lovers becoming parents, and about Simmons himself. No cover for this intimate evening of live, original music!
