Abingdon Music Experience / January Jams Presents Amythyst Kiah & Her Chest Of Glass Jan 5th

For Fans of: Sister Rosetta Tharp, Dolly Parton, Adele, Carter Family, Indigo Girls A professed Southern Gothic, alt-country blues singer/songwriter based in Johnson City, TN, Amythyst Kiah’s commanding stage presence is only matched by her raw and powerful vocals—a deeply moving, hypnotic sound that stirs echoes of a distant and restless past. Accoutered interchangeably with banjo, acoustic guitar, or a full band (Her Chest of Glass), Amythyst’s toolbox is augmented by her scholarship of African-American roots music. Her eclectic influences span decades, drawing heavily on old time music (Mississippi Sheiks, Son House, Jimmie Rodgers, Olla Belle Reed, Carter Family), inspired by... Continue

January Jams Presents John Paul White Jan 12th In Abingdon VA Jan 12

Abingdon Music Experience / January Jams Presents John Paul White Jan 12th In Abingdon VA

For Fans of: Civil Wars, Sara Watkins, Andrew Combs, Gregory Alan Isakov Beulah. It’s a small, complicated word with a tangle of meanings. It’s the title of John Paul White’s new album, his first in nearly a decade, a remarkably and assuredly diverse collection spanning plaintive folk balladry, swampy southern rock, lonesome campfire songs, and dark acoustic pop. Gothic and ambitious, with a rustic, lived-in sound, it’s a meditation on love curdling into its opposite, on recrimination defining relationships, on hope finally filtering through doubt. Beulah is also a White family nickname. “It’s a term of endearment around our house,” White explains, “like... Continue

January Jams Presents John Moreland Jan 13th In Abingdon VA Jan 13

Abingdon Music Experience / January Jams Presents John Moreland Jan 13th In Abingdon VA

For Fans of: Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Josh Ritter, Ryan Adams The replay of John Moreland’s network television debut is…glorious and affirming and a sucker punch. He is announced by Stephen Colbert, lights dissolve, and the camera slowly focuses on the person midway across the unadorned stage, revealing him beneath muted blue lights. He is a big man. Seated, alone, cradling his acoustic guitar. He looks like nobody who is famous. Then he begins to sing, to caress the song “Break My Heart Sweetly,” and all that remains is to whisper, “Oh, my god.” In Colbert’s studio everybody stood, like they were in church. Big Bad Luv...
