When Mavis Staples says you're black, you're black

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0500

The title track of the great Mavis Staples' new album, If All I Was Was Black, is a stunning song. Over a raw, gritty R&B track that hearkens back to the early 1970s heyday of Al Green and Sly Stone, Staples, still a strikingly powerful voice at the age of 78, rides the song's infectious groove, asking "If all I was was black/ Don't you wanna know me more than that?"

Thu, 08 Feb 2018 09:22:00 -0500

width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="">
Yesterday, Rolling Stone debuted Shovels & Rope's new single, "Great, America (2017),"
aptly describing it as a “stark commentary on the U.S.” Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent told the Rolling Stone Country, “We felt like we needed to give ourselves and our fans a national pep talk.

 “This song represents our observations and feelings regarding many of the overwhelming events of the year 2017,” they said of the song that was written in Denver hotel room. “Jet-lagged and feeling sensitive to the world politic, we turned on the news and it was a barrage of floods and fires, civil rights protests being confused with anti-patriotism, and escalating nuclear and refugee situations. more…

Souls brings dinner + show and a lounge atmosphere to North Charleston

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 12:44:00 -0500

[location-1] Dinner and a show is somewhat of a long-lost concept, even in bigger cities. But King Hollywood and his concept Souls (7550 Dorchester Road) is keeping the dream alive with its promise of live entertainment on more nights than not in a lounge atmosphere along with a menu with a little something for everyone.

Open since August of 2017, Souls serves up live music every Wednesday (jazz from Charlton Singleton each week except tonight: Quiana Q. Parler & the Contemporary Flow), Thursday (funk and soul from the Black Diamond Band), and Friday (reggae night with the likes of Ros Bonghi & The All Stars and Mystic Vibrations). more…

Steep Canyon Rangers recorded their new album the old-fashioned way

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0500

For nearly 20 years, Asheville's Steep Canyon Rangers have been pushing the limits of bluegrass. Even in their lineup, they expand traditional boundaries; in 2013, they augmented their mandolin-acoustic guitar-banjo-fiddle configuration with a percussionist, Mike Ashworth. They've also teamed up with comedian, author, actor, and banjo player Steve Martin for two albums, played with Edie Brickell, and performed with symphony orchestras, but that's just the showy stuff. The real boundary-breaking is within the grooves of their 10 studio albums.

After vocal scare, Art Garfunkel returns to the stage with passion

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 04:00:00 -0500

Art Garfunkel has a question for me. He's happy to talk about his new In Close Up tour, the songs he'll be singing, even the terrifying period back in 2010 when he suddenly lost that pure, glowing tenor voice that lent such majesty to Simon & Garfunkel hits like "Bridge Over Troubled Water."
