One of our favorite “real country”/Americana groups, Little Country Giants are coming back to Barking Legs Theater on Sunday Feb. 17th. for an early evening show in one of the best venues in the southeast for sound quality and intimate settings. Their latest CD is titled “60 Grit.” Here are a couple of songs for You to listen to before the show. It was difficult to choose which ones to post here because everything on the album is great, So I may switch them with others before the show so check back.

Eliza Rickman is coming back to play @ Barking Legs Theater in Chattanooga, TN Thursday Nov. 15th. Eliza Rickman’s performance last April @ Barking Legs Theater convinced me she is completely ready for much bigger stages once the media and then the public catches on to her amazingly dynamic stage presentations, chilling vocals and captivating stage presence. Her looping capabilities rival that of Andrew Bird and we will once again roll out the Grand Piano for her performance in order to accentuate her signature set which includes toy piano and other technological marvels as well. Don’t miss Eliza Rickman while You can still see her in this up close & intimate environment. You can read about this show and link to complete information on all the artists who will be performing HERE once our updates are complete for this show. Eliza will also be appearing on Richard Winham’s afternoon music program on WUTC NPR 88.1 fm in Chattanooga @ between 2 & 4pm on The day of the Show. You can link to their live webcast as well. Until then You can listen here to two of my personal favorites from Eliza’s most recent album
“O You Sinners” which was released in March of 2012.
Last year’s Hope for Agoldensummer’s April show @ Barking Legs Theater in Chattanooga, TN turned out to be the week of one of the most devastating Tornado outbreaks in memorable history but the show still went on! If You missed the band that weekend due to the chaos, lack of power at your house or worse, they will return on Sunday April 15th 2012along with HuDost and dance performer Lacy Jo. You can read all about this show HERE. ~R.*

Of all the new material I’ve been hearing since last fall this music sticks with me and plays in my head as much as anything I’ve heard. These unmastered songs appear on the new full length album.

Six songs including a couple of surprising holiday numbers featuring sparkling harmonies by Sam Quinn and Jill Andrews highlighted by the understated dobro flourishes of David Richey. A rare treat from the era which defined the original sound and style of Johnson City Tennessee’s “almost supergroup.”
This is a live recording accompanying the ArtFRONT Presentations coverage of The Green Man Festival at Glanusk Estate near Brecon Wales in August 2007.

Joanna Newsom’s performance was one of the most spectacular of the event. This recording was made almost by accident with a tiny digital voice recorder that was never meant for music, but the excellent sound quality at the festival coupled with the hush that befell the audience as they were mesmerized by this performance makes it well worth listening. Two songs by Joanna Newsom including “The Book of Right On” are featured here.
