Sleepy Eyed Fox Wakes Up Backdoor Playhouse

The folk-rock group Sleepy Eyed Fox will play the Backdoor Playhouse at 7 p.m. next Thursday, Jan. 27. Opening for the group will be Jen Richardson and Mary Summerlin. Sleepy Eyed Fox formed in 2009 with members John Essary, Sarah Huddleston and Nick Huddleston. Chad Huddleston and Stephen Earnest were later added to the trio. Their concert in Cookeville is a Center Stage event and is free and open to the public. Center Stage Events are made possible by the General Education Fund, which is supported by student fees.  The campus host for the band, Andy Smith, says the show will feature a culturally unique genre of music and presents young, aspiring musicians in an intimate context that promotes community and interaction.
