7/10 Friday: Bluff City Backsliders
Memphis Jug Band
The Bluff City Backsliders formed in 1999 around several
veteran Memphis musicians who shared a hankering for great old sounds
from the pre - World War II era. They found between them a hearty
repertoire of early jazz, jug band, old-time country, and proto-bluegrass
tunes that cried out to be resurrected. These almost forgotten songs morphed into a high-powered, hip-shaking, barrelhouse hoodoo music
that's as profane as it is glorious. At bottom, it's a wholly Southern
musical sound, reaching from Memphis to Appalachia and all the way down
to New Orleans, often all at once. Performing with a back-porch soul
and the ferocity of the best punk
bands, the band adds a new-fangled sensibility and some youthful energy to a deep heritage.
What's for lunch? Local
and Touring Single/Duo/Group Acts will Perform Blues, Soul, Rockabilly,
Bluegrass, Jazz, and Folk - just come by and find out who's playing."Brown Bag" your own lunch or try one of the Center's authentic
Southern dishes - meat or meatless chili, vegetarian greens, hot water
cornbread and peach cobbler.
