March 16th performers

 

Join us for an exciting evening of Roots & Blues with Jason Connelly and Bill Sheffield (with Spencer Kirkpatrick).

 

 

 

Jason Connelly

 

The soulful sound that emits from Jason's vocals and the blues-inspired chords that strum loudly from his rhythmic guitar are not what you'd expect to hear from his humble nature. Jason often thanks his soulful musical influences like Bill Withers, Al Green, Bonnie Raitt and modern musicians like Fiona Apple, Live, and Augustana for his unique sound. Jason has made quite a name for himself over the past few years, touring throughout the country, including playing frequently at Nashville's famous songwriter venue, 'The Listening Room'. Jason set out to make music with what he referred to as “music with intent”. Since the release of his first record, Songs from Inside the Attic, in 2009, Jason Connelly and his band have gone on to release five more records. The sounds emanating from his songwriting diary reflect mostly on past memories while remaining true to his initial goal of creating music that sparks positivity and sincerity.

 

 

 

Bill Sheffield

 

Everything about Bill Sheffield is authentic. It’s there in the intense, transcendent way he finger picks his guitar with hints of John Hurt and Blind Blake flashing through. It’s there in his songs that wrestle with earthly pleasure and the need for redemption. And it most definitely is there in Got A Gig, Gotta Go, his 9th studio recording on American Roots Records. Journal On A Shelf, Sheffield’s release and the new Got A Gig, Gotta Go distill a lifetime pursuit of authentic American roots music that announce the arrival of one of the most significant roots musicians to emerge in the past decade.

 

 

 

Spencer Kirkpatrick

 

In the ’70s, Hydra was a Southern-rock band that owed more to the heavy British blues of Cream and Free than Skynyrd. Its secret weapon was lead guitarist Spencer Kirkpatrick, a player whose licks led the band through three LPs before it disappeared. Today, Spencer continues to gig while working at Atlanta Vintage Guitars, and joins Bill Sheffield, and others, on stage for weekly jams and exciting performances throughout the Atlanta area.
