Dinner with Sasha Papernik and Justin Poindexter at River House Inn and Restaurant

Continue celebrating the holidays with Sasha Papernik and Justin Poindexter over dinner at the River House in Ashe County’s Grassy Greek.

Steeped in the tradition of great male and female duets such as Johnny Cash and June Carter, and Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, Sasha Papernik and Justin Poindexter bring their own effervescent energy, gorgeous songwriting, and intimate harmonies to a rich Americana soundscape. Their expansive palette pulls great songs from every decade and every corner of the globe, weaving them into a cohesive tapestry. Together, they have performed for audiences in some of the world’s greatest venues, from Carnegie Hall to Lincoln Center to the Smithsonian Museum of American Art.


Vocalist and pianist/accordionist Sasha Papernik is a classically trained pianist and first-generation Russian-American. The Washington Post calls her "uncommonly attractive and entertaining…managing a comfortable balance of the formal and the casual." Drawing on her dual heritage, she uses her wide range of talents to present concerts spanning genres and continents. Her self-released bilingual album, Victory, has been hailed by reviewers as "unparalleled in its aesthetics and musical elegance" (Indiemunity). Her bilingual concert, "I Speak Music," has toured New York City schools for The Center for Arts Education and Lincoln Center Education. Sasha is a graduate of Wellesley College and the Manhattan School of Music.

Guitarist and vocalist Justin Poindexter was raised in North Carolina, the son of a country singer and a schoolteacher. Specializing in American Roots music, including folk, blues, country and traditional jazz, his 2014 album with the Amigos, "Diner in the Sky," won Americana Album of Year from the Independent Music Awards. Justin has performed with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, David Amram, Ken Peplowski, Bria Skonberg, Ranger Doug, Nellie McKay, Catherine Russell, and Jon Batiste among many others, and has travelled extensively overseas for the American Music Abroad program, He designed and oversees Jazz at Lincoln Center’s global outreach concert initiative, "Let Freedom Swing," which receives 600 performances annually. He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

This will be Sasha Papernik and Justin Poindexter’s last public performance before heading to Estonia for a week of performances in early January. Their bassist friend Paul Defiglia (the Avett Brothers, Langhorne Slim) will join them.
