I’m looking forward to the Folk Alliance’s first conference in its new home, Kansas City. I’ll be there with a little pop-up video studio I call the FolkTube Room.
The Troubadour Blues Roadshow — an exciting blend of film, poetry, acoustic music and song-driven rock & roll — is coming to Tennessee in October for a three-night mini-tour. We’ll start out at the Pilot Light in Knoxville on Thursday, Oct. 10, travel on to the Family Wash in Nashville on Friday, Oct. 11, and wind up at Kudzu’s in Memphis on Saturday, Oct. 12.
The touring show features a 25-minute preview of Troubadour Blues, filmmaker Tom Weber’s insightful documentary about hard-traveling musicians, followed by live performances by three exciting artists: poet and songwriter RB Morris, cowgirl song-slinger Nancy Apple, and roots-rockers The Tim Lee Three. Surprise musical guests will be featured each night.
