Chris Biester has been playing and writing songs in the Athens area for over 25 years. Fronting the band Appalachian Death Ride (ADR) in the 80’s and 90’s, Biester traveled the United States in a ’73 Cadillac hearse. He has performed at the Westbeth theater in New York city, has appeared on Mountain Stage, and has hosted more open mikes than he’d care to mention. His solo act is a mixture of songs and stories, country blues, ballads, waltzes and a little rock and roll for good measure. In addition to NMF, you will be able to take in his songs on most all Wednesday nights at Casa in Athens where he hosts Open Mic Night. Biester also plays in Athens supergroup Supernobody and with his band County Pharaohs.
