Jim Lauderdale, February 22 2018

 

The Pure Memphis Music Series presents Americana icon Jim Lauderdale on February 22! Lauderdale is a “songwriter’s songwriter” who’s written or co-written many modern classics for iconic artists, as well as an intuitive sideman, who’s enhanced the music of a bevy of esteemed musicians. As a solo artist, since 1986 up until now, he’s created a body work spanning 29 albums of imaginative roots music, encompassing country, bluegrass, soul, R&B and rock, as well as helping pave the way for the current Americana movement. His 29th album, London Southern, released in June of 2017, was recorded in London at Goldtop studios and produced by Neil Brockbank and Robert Trehern. He’s also been cooking up some new sounds at Memphis’ own Royal Studios.

The Pistol & The Queen, February 8 2018

 

The Pure Memphis Music Series presents Pistol & The Queen on February 8. Pete Wood (itinerant musician, London) picked up hitchhiker Tracey Cayolle (guitar-slinger, New Orleans) just outside of The Women’s Correctional Facility of Tallulah, Madison Parish, Louisiana. Unperturbed by the fact that Wood was entirely incapable of piloting any form of automobile, the pair ultimately made their way to Clarksdale, Mississippi. After five days and five nights, they had recorded an album. They called the album – and themselves – The Pistol & The Queen. Currently resident exiles in Memphis, they have a new album out called Surrounded & Outnumbered.

John Nemeth, January 25 2018

 

In an unlikely spot in downtown Memphis, you’ll find the city’s next iconic music moment happening: Old Dominick Distillery, a Memphis original deeply connected to our city’s entrepreneurial past and its innovative future, launches its Pure Memphis Music series in January of 2018.

The Old Dominick story is Pure Memphis, and the musicians presented in this space will be, too. The Pure Memphis series will create a second-to-none experience for both artist and audience, and you’re invited to experience the very first of these special evenings, featuring John Nemeth & The Blue Dreamers. Your ticket includes an Old Dominick cocktail on us — the perfect pairing for an early evening concert without the distraction and din of a typical barroom venue.

John’s new album Feelin’ Freaky was produced by Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars) and recorded at the Dickinson family’s Zebra Ranch and Memphis’ own Royal Studios.

Elmore Magazine calls Nemeth’s live performance “blistering and perfectly pitched while his own songwriting talents were also clearly unmistakable… Nemeth made the absolute most of his stage-time, ripping along with an assurance and style that was truly masterful.” The Commercial Appeal says Feelin’ Freaky is “new high watermark in his career.”

Don’t miss him at Old Dominick’s Pure Memphis Music Series, January 25!
