Live Thursday the 30th at 4pm: CHARLES HEDGEPATH

CHARLES HEDGEPATH

Guitarist Charles Hedgepath plays just about every night in Greenville (OK not every night, but he's playing there Thursday night this week, and Friday night in Brevard.)  He also covers just about every genre of music you can think of, from jazz to folk to funk to country (he also recorded one of our absolute favorite Christmas albums a few years back!)  He's bringing his band in, and will talk about upcoming projects with The Work, The Bad Popes, and tales of jamming with The Dark Star Jubillee with Matt Reynolds and Rob Barraco.

Thursday Night the 30th between 8pm & Midnight: PATTY GRIFFIN - American Kid

PATTY GRIFFIN - American Kid

We wrap up May with what has to be considered one of the best releases of the month, and likely a Top 10 contender for WNCW's 2013 list.  American Kid is Patty Griffin's 7th full-length, and includes assistance from brothers Luther & Cody Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars), and Robert Plant, with whom she's a professional as well as romantic relationship the past few years.  The songs center largely around the death of her father, including her one cover,  an incredibly moving version of Lefty Frizzell's "Mom and Dad's Waltz".  We'll play each of these fine examples of mode

ME on 5/22: 'JOURNEY TO THE EDGE OF EDEN', By Dr. Gary Schmelz

This book is for environmentalists and for those that don't believe in 'global warming'. It's  for those who had (or have) a wonderful relationship with a parent, and for those who don't. It's a book to share with your children to get them fired up about hanging out with you. It's also a book to get them fired up about saving the environment. It's really a book for just about anyone.

In 'Journey to the Edge of Eden, " Schmelz writes a memoir of a fascinating life that started in the city of Newark, NJ and ended up in a place that couldn't possibly be any different.
