3 Penny Acre is a musical collaboration between three up and coming songwriters: Bayard Blain, Bernice Hembree, and Bryan Hembree. Fans and critics have quickly identified their unique, Ozark-inspired sound as distinct, yet universally appealing. Listeners in all corners have begun to appreciate their attention to lyrics, harmony, and carefully crafted acoustic arrangements steeped in roots music traditions but with a focus on fresh, new songs.

Shortly after forming as a band, 3 Penny Acre won the 2008 Walnut Valley Festival (Winfield, Kansas) NewSongs competition. The exposure the win brought 3 Penny Acre helped to solidify their path as emerging artists. In the 18 months that followed, they toured extensively throughout the nation, were invited as an official showcase artist to the 2009 and 2010 International Folk Alliance Conference, and released a debut album that was selected as one of the Top 40 albums of 2009 by Norm Mast and Al Kniola of The Back Porch 88.1 WVPE (Indiana) and won âAlbum of the Yearâ at the Northwest Arkansas Music Awards.

Their sophomore effort âHighway 71â is an album of 10 songs documenting the people and places of middle America. 3 Penny Acre, whose name comes from the cost of the Louisiana Purchase, is a fitting name for a band whose members were all raised inside its borders. The album paints a portrait of their homeland two-hundred years on. The songs are beautiful and longing, yet at times anti-nostalgic, resisting the temptation to âgold washâ the tough history of the people and places they portray.

âThe next generation of songwriters on the sceneâ - johnsmith

âA vocal freight trainâ - Jonathan Byrd

âEvery member is like a piece of an intricate engineâ - The Fayetteville Flyer

âFor a band named after the Louisiana Purchase, this is a perfect albumâ - Kyle Kellams, host of NPRâs Ozarks at Large

â3 Penny Acreâs music evokes the drastic landscape of middle America. Their songs carry both sadness and triumph in the portrayal of their homelands. This clarity is what separates them from other Americana/Folk artists.â - Laura Wortman of The Honey Dewdrops
