HONKY TONKIN’ WITH HANG ROUNDERS
November 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm$2 – $20
Hang Rounders’ music is best heard on a dance floor, where it is allowed to do its work and get you movin’, singin’, and bringin’ (your sister). Their newest songs, “June Bug” b/w “Shaky Hands,” will be released on 7 inch vinyl in late 2018. They were produced at Mighty Fine Productions in Denver, CO with engineer Colin Bricker, and feature guest musicians Mark Shusterman (Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats) on keys and the most excellent Jennifer Jane Niceley on backing vocals.
Opening act: Jennifer Niceley
Tennessee songwriter Jennifer Jane Niceley pens jazz-hued folk with deep roots in southern soul and western twang –sometimes like a campfire ballad sung as sweet and slow as a torch song, always with a singular voice that can transcend time and place. Her lyrics bare longing and regret, poetic dreamscapes of twisted trees, summer storms, the scent of freshly tilled soil…Released late 2017 after relocating to Colorado, her new album, Angels, Demons, Red-Tail Hawks, is a genre-defying collection of fresh, original songs — recorded in Nashville earlier that summer with multi-instrumentalist Eric McConnell (Loretta Lynn, Todd Snider, Sierra Ferrell). The follow up to 2014’s dreamy, bucolic Birdlight, (written while still living and working on her family’s Tennessee farm) this new offering finds her looking west and traveling light, drawing still on her chief inspirations: the land and the human heart.
