CHARLIE LOUVIN, of the Louvin Brothers, released a new album on Tompkins square. Hosting an all star cast of guest appearances, Mark Nevers (Calexico, Candi Staton) from the "other side of Nashville" produced the album with Charlie.
A LITTLE HISTORY:
Charlie was one of the most noteworthy musicians of the '40s and '50s. He and his brother Ira advanced the close harmony duo performance (of old-time country days) into the new era of country music of the 50's.
A FEW REMARKS:
It's always a good idea to hold onto the past gems when heading into the future, it's a main characteristic of successful evolution. And the country of the 50's holds a special place in our collective soul..
To me it doesn't get much more intimate and traditional.
OLD + NEW =
Elvis Costello, George Jones, Will Oldham, Jeff Tweedy, Tom T. Hall, and members of Lampchop and Bright Eyes all join Mr. Louvin in this distinctive project.
They'll be celebrating the album's release with an in-store at Grimey's in Music City on Saturday, February 24th .
The best part..he's making a stop by SXSW.. where we hope to get a glimpse of the history maker in person.
