Silver City Bound returns to the "More Barn" Concert Series with a rare performance of the band's original lineup, featuring UNCSA alums Justin Poindexter and saxophonist Eddie Barbash (Jon Batiste, Late Show with Stephen Colbert) along with accordionist/keyboardist Sam Reider. Bassist Pat Lawerence will join the band for the performance.
A professed Southern Gothic, alt-country blues singer/songwriter based in Johnson City, TN, Amythyst Kiah’s commanding stage presence is only matched by her raw and powerful vocals—a deeply moving, hypnotic sound that stirs echoes of a distant and restless past.
Accoutered interchangeably with banjo, acoustic guitar, or a full band (Her Chest of Glass), Amythyst’s toolbox is augmented by her scholarship of African-American roots music. Her eclectic influences span decades, drawing heavily on old time music (Mississippi Sheiks, Son House, Jimmie Rodgers, Olla Belle Reed, Carter Family), inspired by strong R&B and country music vocalists from the '50s-'70s (Big Mama Thornton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Mahalia Jackson, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn) and influenced by contemporary artists with powerful vocal integrity (Adele, Florence and the Machine, Megan Jean and the KFB, Janelle Monae).
According to rock ‘n roll lore, after completing his now legendary 1972 album “Harvest,” Neil Young hosted Graham Nash at his Broken Arrow ranch outside San Francisco to play his long-time collaborator some of the new tracks. The two old friends rowed a boat out onto a lake next to Young’s home, and suddenly the new music was playing, with his house serving as the left speaker and his barn as the right. When the engineer called from the shore to ask how it sounded, Young hollered back, “More barn!’”
