Thursday, December 18, 2014

Pianist, songwriter and contemporary adult stalwart Jim Brickman returns to town for a show at the Lyons Brown Theatre on December 18.

Tickets to the show are $25 and up.

The return of Trampled by Turtles to town has the attention of hippest fans of bluegrass folk-rock, who must be feeling like they're in tall cotton. Their hipness stems from both their musical proficiency as well as their stated influences: Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, The Rolling Stones, Nirvana and Ralph Stanley. (Clearly, it doesn't narrow the music down too much.) They've managed to put several  albums at the top of the bluegrass chart, including Palomino, which stayed in the Top Ten for a year. The quintet has a new album, Wild Animals, to play for you. Of course, WFPK is sponsoring this show. Nikki Lane will open. Check it out at the Brown Theatre on December 20 for $30 and up.

Watch the official video for "Wild Animals":

Things will get quiet as we head toward Christmas day, so it's a good time to sample some seasonal offerings. The Louisville Master Chorale gets the nod to present the Cathedral Of The Assumption's traditional Christmas show on December 21, which will feature "the Christmas portion of Handelís Messiah (including the popular Hallelujah chorus) plus Vivaldiís wondrous Gloria. Two Carol Fantasies by Mack Wilburg will include the familiar The First Noel and Joy to the World." Tickets are $25, showtime is 2:30 p.m.
