Thursday Night the 20th between 8pm and Midnight: RAILROAD EARTH - Last of the Outlaws

For their 7th release, Railroad Earth has added horn & string sections, penny whistle, and collections of songs with successive movements.  But it's all played by the original 6 band mates, and it's still the same great Railroad Earth that we love...in fact it's one of our favorite new releases here! Join us Thursday night as we feature Lat of the Outlaws throughout the evening.

Monday Night March 10th at 8pm: NORMAN BLAKE - Live at McCabe's

We celebrate one of our country's best flatpicking guitarist's birthdays Monday night with this live recording from 1976.  The Chattanooga native has backed John Hartford, Bob Dylan, Tony Rice, and other greats over years with an easy-going blend of bluegrass, country, and folk.  If you're an aspiring flatpicker yourself, your jaw will hit the floor when you hear him blaze through some of these: "Nine Pound Hammer", "John Hardy", and "Arkansas Traveler" are a few of the highlights.  He whips out his fiddle for a couple numbers too, and Nancy Blake joins him for some as well.

Thursday Night the 13th between 8pm and Midnight: NICK WATERHOUSE - Holly

Soulful horns, juke-joint piano, jazz covers, but from a rocker at heart, Nick Waterhouse's 2nd album immediately grabbed our attention on first listen.  Eric Danton of Paste Magazine says Waterhouse "has crafted an album that unfolds like a film: it’s brisk, self-contained and a little mysterious, and catchy enough to revisit again and again" (and in fact Waterhouse says this album is primarily influenced by the film Chinatown.) Join us Thursday as we spend the evening with Holly.
