Will Payne Harrison with special guests Steam Machine (Blues/Bluegrass) $10
Thursday, September 5 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Everyone knows that Louisiana is a great melting pot of music, food and Southern culture. Will Payne Harrison simmered in that pot for most of his life, soaking in influences of Traditional Cajun, Louisiana Blues, Swamp Pop, New Orleans Brass Bands and Zydeco. Even after departing Louisiana for Nashville to start his own solo career, he has kept in touch with his Louisiana Roots making his own unique blend of Americana and Roots music. On East Nashville Blues, Will Payne Harrison dove deeper into Bluegrass, Country and Singer-Songwriter genres, using a cast of top-notch Nashville musicians. With his newest album, Living With Ghosts, Harrison went back to his roots, bringing in the Crème de la crème of Louisiana musicians featuring The Rayo Brothers members (Jesse Reaux, Lance Kelehan and Jordan Ardoin) along with lead guitarist Jim McGee. Fats Kaplin (John Prine) even joined in on pedal steel and fiddle. Slated to be out in late Summer/early Fall, Living With Ghosts will encompass the perfect blend of Will Payne Harrison’s Louisiana/Nashville sound.
Steam Machine is a Minneapolis-based string band that plays tunes and songs from the transitional era between old-time and bluegrass. Their repertoire ranges from fiddle tunes collected in the Midwest plains to Appalachian songs/tunes recorded in the 78 era. They combine clean, powerful fiddling with driving three finger banjo, a lively, solid rhythm section, and raw, unprocessed vocals.
