this monday at the hideout

High Plains Jamboree is the group name for Brennen Leigh, her husband Noel McKay, fiddler Beth Chrisman, and a bassist I know only as Simon. Brennen's one of my faves. You might remember her from a show we did at the Hideout last year. She sang sweet country duets with both me and Noel, showed off her songwriting chops, and picked tasty bluegrass mandolin. We had so much fun that she scheduled a Monday night stop on her midwest band tour this year, between Ohio and Wisconsin, where I understand Chicago lies. If you like the Austin take on country -- musically rooted and lyrically thoughtful -- and good picking, and, primus inter pares, beautiful singing, please come see me collaborate with this quartet.
