Music City Roots Thanksgiving Show

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

This could just as easily have been dubbed the Music City Roots Hanukkah Show, considering 2013 happens to be the rarer-than-rare year when the eight days of potato latkes overlap with the annual day of turkey, stuffing and gluttony. But that would’ve called for booking the acts with Jewish representation in mind. As it is, this is a formidable lineup of locally based faves, including effervescent, crowd-slaying gospel-shouter Mike Farris; note-bending singer and trad-leaning songwriter of stick-to-your-ribs country Shawn Camp; current touring member of the Doobie Brothers and long-ago standard-setter for merging acoustic licks with soul-pop heat John Cowan; and deeply funky Southern-pop supergroup 18 South, which features the likes of Jon Randall Stewart, Jessi Alexander and Guthrie Trapp. You’re guaranteed to hear some openly emotional — but not overly sentimental — performances that, come to think of it, should really hit the spot for anybody steeling themselves for a dysfunctional family gathering.
