Wednesday –11:30am – Don Bryant on Southern Stream Panel – Country Music Hall of Fame and Music, Ford Theater (222 5th Avenue S) and available to live stream at http://countrymusichalloffame.
Americana music, like all American music, is fundamentally eclectic, born of the myriad cultural crossings that form the basis of our complex national history. Within every country song is a blues root and a soul heart; every folk ballad has traveled within a diaspora that may have touched the Caribbean, Mexico, or the Native American West. This songwriters round brings together four artists whose music reflects very different family legacies and life experiences, from Southern soul to Latin-tinged country to African-diaspora folk. Their songs and stories form a portrait of Americana music that reflects the true and varied foundation of Americana music. Moderated by Ann Powers of NPR Music, the program will feature performances and conversation from Don Bryant, Yola Carter, Raul Malo, and Joan Osborne.
Friday – 10:15pm - Kevin Gordon – Douglas Corner (2106 8th Ave S)
