Tommy Emmanuel brings his finger-fireworks to WVU in January.
Brooke Waggoner will make her second appearance on Feb. 7.
Robert Earl Keen will bring songs from Rose Hotel on Feb. 14.
The rafters in the Culture Center are sure to get dusted on February 21 as we invite several modern-day alt-rock groups, all with their own twist on the Americana-dream.
Lucero, road-warriors from Memphis, Heartland rockers The Bottle Rockets, central-Virginia rased Sons of Bill, and, just added, Huntington, WV's own Bud Carroll & the Southern Souls. Carroll & the Souls have recorded their definitive statement in "Wasted Words & Best Intentions," recorded with Sublime engineer Eddie Ashworth in Athens, OH.
Featuring Jon Cavendish on keyboards/guitar, Jimmy Lykans on bass and Steve Barker on Drums, the Southern Souls is a broadly bordered band, incorporating heavy southern rock, slide-guitar infested soul, a couple of rambuncous blues numbers and some all out honky tonk. In other words, "Americana." Give a listen to "Big Coal" on their MySpace.
Paul Thorn will make his sixth appearance on March 28.
Another longtime friend of the show, Paul Thorn, will be joining us March 28 here in Charleston along with Peter Bradley Adams. Thorn who is almost the most famous person to come out of Tupelo Miss., has a new record titled for his home town, "Long Way from Tupelo."
We can't wait to hear what he's got in store for us this time at the Culture Center Theater March 28. Get yourtickets online, by phone at 800.594.TIXX or locally at Taylor Books.
We hope you'll come see us at a live recording in 2010.
