An All New Episode Of Insights Airs Wednesday @ 2PM
Mipso: Chapel Hill’s indie Americana quartet Mipso released their fifth album, Edges Run, on April 6th, 2018 via a newly inked record deal with AntiFragile Music. Influenced by the contradiction of its progressive home and the surrounding rural southern landscapes, Mipso has been hailed as “hewing surprisingly close to gospel and folk while still sounding modern and secular” (Acoustic Guitar) and was recently recognized by Rolling Stoneas an “ Artist You Need to Know.” The band brings a distinctly unique sound – full of wistful beauty, hopeful undercurrents, and panoramic soundscapes. Venturing ever-further from its string-band pedigree to discover a broader Americana where classic folk-rock and modern alt-country sounds mingle easily with Appalachian tradition, Mipso’s music is lush and forward moving, with lyrics that sear and salve in turn.
Will Kimbrough: Will Kimbrough plays a lot of music. As an Alabama native living in Nashville, he zig zags the world singing songs and playing guitars, often solo, but also in many other collaborations. When not touring Will spends his days writing songs, producing artists, recording music in a studio, being creative with band members and spending time with his family. Will Kimbrough’s guitar and multi-instrumental prowess makes him an in-demand producer and session musician. Some of his latest productions include Doug Seegers, Shemekia Copeland, Radney Foster and Jimmy Buffett. During his years as a touring guitarist, will toured with Todd Snider, Rodney Crowell and Emmylou Harris, among other notable artists. There are many others with whom he has shared the stage, including Mavis Staples and Allen Toussaint.
DittyTV Concert Series Featuring Lucero
Sunday @ 8PM
Tune in for the DittyTV Concert Series featuring a band we all know and love, from right here in Memphis, the world’s hardest working Americana Rock and Rollers, Lucero.They got their start in the mid-90s in Memphis and have since earned a reputation as a must-see live act. Truly. As things tend do, a lot has changed for the band members over the years – new looks, new locations, new families, but they maintain the same old Lucero vision – focused, versatile, determined, and resilient. Real sharpshooters in the music business. We’ve got Ben, John C., Roy, Rick, and Brian all working together to create something special.Their latest album’scalled Among the Ghosts, and its release coincided with their 20th anniversary as a band. The album was recorded live in one room with producer Matt Ross-Spang at Memphis’ legendary Sam Phillips Recording, and we think they succeeded inmaking a rock and roll record that’s both subtle and sensitive.
