Patrick Dethlefs with special guest Ben Sollee

$8

Advance reservations are closed for this event, but there may be seats available for walk-ups. There will be standing room.

Patrick Dethlefs hails from Colorado, and is doing a brief tour through central Kentucky with special guest Ben Sollee.


More about the artists:

For a stalwart young artist who creates different means to an end, Ben Sollee has enjoyed a whirlwind year replete with remarkable success and warm, exciting music to match.

Sollee hails from Kentucky, yet sounds nothing like the colloquial music one traditionally associates with the state (or anywhere else for that matter). He eschews traditional singer-songwriter and folk boundaries, choosing a cello rather than a guitar as his divining rod, and utilizing unique plucking and percussive bow techniques juxtaposed against his blue-eyed soul meets Antony Hegarty vocal leanings. Ben enjoys collaborating with musicians as disparate as Otis Taylor and Bela Fleck, touring with indie rock royalty, and covering Sam Cooke as an homage to blues. When he ventures out of Louisville, sometimes he'll just strap this cello to his back and ride his bike rather than enjoy the comforts of a van or bus, as he did on his southern trek in the summer of 2009 -- playing intimate shows in every town he hits between his larger headlining performances. Yes, Ben's always done things a bit differently.

(Pronounced “Det-Lefs”)

Born in Tacoma, Washington, Patrick Dethlefs now makes his home in Kittredge, Colorado. He first picked up the guitar at the age of 12 after some inspiration from his father and a little push from a neighbor. He began to learn styles such as rock, punk, and jam music, and on and on it goes. Then around the age of 15, he began writing his own songs. He remembers people saying, “Let’s learn this song,” but he always loved coming up with his own. That eventually paid off; Patrick was awarded The Best Teen Songwriter Award at Swallow Hill in Denver, Colorado in 2009. He also won Best Song as well as Best Performance. Quickly after, Dethlefs released his debut album, Stays the Same, which displays original songs as well as a few traditional tunes.

Mollie O'Brien

$12

More about the artist available here.

When Mollie met Rich, it was way beyond girl meets boy. Call it a convergence of two musical minds and hearts.

“We finally talked on April Fool's Day, 1981, at the Denver Folklore Center,” said Rich. Mollie thought to herself that day "I think I could marry that guy." Music was the common language and it wasn’t very long before they wed, and would raise two daughters and launch two careers.

After getting married, Mollie and Rich played together – he was bassist in her R&B outfit, The Late Show. When the girls were born, Rich decided to stay home with the 9 to 5 job and to focus less on music for awhile.

Holy Ghost Tent Revival

$10

Characterized as "explosively intoxicating," Greensboro, NC's Holy Ghost Tent Revival cannot be pigeonholed into any popular genre. Melding brass with banjo, guitar, bass, drums, and keys this six-piece ensemble boasts an eclectic mash of instruments and styles -- a musical alchemy all their own.

The original Shotgun Party trio met in a little Texas dive bar in 2006. They got their start performing weekly at Austin's own Continental Club. Sparks flew and now Shotgun Party, the Austin based trio, really knows how to fire up a crowd! Their original songs are beautiful and timeless drawing influences from early blues, country, bluegrass and depression era swing. Katy Rose Cox's fearles fiddling is simply virtuosic. Miss Jenny Parrott's gorgeous vocals and addictive songs will bring you to your knees. ...and introducing Shotgun Party's newest member, Andrew Austin-Petersen (formerly of the Shake 'Em Ups) on show stopping upright bass!
