2010 World Equestrian Games

Bach Bawk Bagawk

What happens when several experienced, chicken-loving musicians from other known bands set down the instruments that they normally play, and explore new ideas in a different realm on their completely wrong respective instruments? Absolute ecstasy. Bach Bawk Bagawk plays free range music; that is, music with no boundaries, from the eyes and mind of a chicken. There is no practicing, there is no writing; it is completely improvisational. No song is ever played twice. They will go from redneck raw to orchestral genius in 2.73 seconds for her pleasure....and yours, of course.

End of Tour Party

Join us for one heckuva end of tour party for Ben Sollee! The Kentucky Coffeetree Cafe sponsored his Ditch the Van tour, and it's coming to a close on October 8. While we're sad to see the end, it's been a very exciting ride!

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.

Roustabout

$5

Roustabout is a trio of acoustic bass, fiddle, guitar, and vox fronted by Josh Philpott. The source material of Roustabout comes the American folk tradition and mainly the Appalachian old-time tradition. The goal is to keep the underlying qualities that make folk music magical while not being bound by the musical practices of it's tradition.

The Lewis Brothers

Eventually, it was going to happen.

Three brothers, all with vastly different music backgrounds, would end up in the same band, aptly named the Lewis Brothers. Russell P., Richard, and Jeff Lewis, combined with percussionist Dennis Foreman, form an exciting arrangement of eclectic and electric folk, rock, country, and general hillbillery. Songwriting duties are traded as often as they swap instruments on stage.

Jeff, formerly of the bluegrass outfit Big Scioto, brings a keen sense of melody and instrumentation. Richard, frontman of the now-defunct pop band Schooley Station, weaves thick harmonies and solid rhythm. Russell, in his first formal group, contributes traditional banjo with an unorthodox twist. The brothers' captivating energy is fueled by Foreman (formerly of Jakob Freely), who's background in world rhythms is applied to a drum kit nicely.

Call it punk-a-billy with traditional instruments. Call it supercharged folk rock. At any rate, call it fun.

Jessica Fichot

$15

Chanteuse and songwriter Jessica Fichot is a lot like her hometown of Paris: French at heart, but with a soul that's truly international. Her multi-ethnic French / Chinese / American upbringing colors the songs on her debut album. It's called Le Chemin, "The Path," and for good reason: Jessica takes the listener on a twisting journey out of the French chanson tradition, into the lands of gypsy jazz, Chinese and Latin American folk music, through the classic American repertoire, and off into the wilderness of her imagination.

Blue Mother Tupelo

$10

Some artists just cannot be kept down - they are irrepressible. Their years of traveling the roads of the South, playing anywhere they can and writing and performing some of the best tunes that two people can possibly put together eventually will show even the best critics and record labels that they are truly a force to be reckoned with. Self-produced ... they have made one of the finest CDs I have heard this year. They are true indie singer-songwriters that have put forth a thing of beauty.
- Gary W. Miller, BLUESSOURCE.COM

Blue Mother Tupelo is quite possibly the best husband and wife duo you've never heard of.
