The Malawi Mouse Boys is a group of young villagers who have been playing music together and writing songs since they were children. They were making their living selling rodent kebabs to travelers in Malawi (hence the name), when they were discovered by producer Ian Brennan, who describes their first recording: "With vocal-powerhouse, Zondiwe Kachingwe, 22, playing Sam Cooke to 27-year-old Nelson Muligo's stonecold Keith Richards, the only real obstacle to catching lightning in a bottle musically with these eight young men were the tiny spiders that kept crawling into the hard-drive and crashing the mobile system as I recorded on the clay-ground beside their hut." They've just released Dirt Is Good, their second album, and are about to take North America by storm. Opening this remarkable evening will be soulful singer-songwriter-guitar wizard McFadden, who spent three years playing guitar and mandolin for George Clinton's P. Funk All-Stars, among a slew of other notable gigs. This will be a very special show featuring two unique artists, and you should not miss this rare opportunity.
Scotland's Currie was a founding member of the band Del Amitri, with whom he has toured as recently as this year. While the band has never called it quits, Currie has been involved in several well received side projects, including fronting the soul and jazz cover band Button Up, and regular appearances in Scotland as part of With Strings Attached. He's also enjoyed a very successful solo career, releasing three critically acclaimed albums since 2007. We've been trying to get him to McCabe's for some time now. Get your tickets while you can.
Audiences around the world have fallen in love with this delightful singer/songwriter and master storyteller. She has three award-winning CDs Mustard Pancakes, Red Raincoat, and The Camel With A Runny Nose and Courtney also co-created and stars in an award-winning children's TV show ("Mustard Pancakes"). This is a concert that neither you nor your kids should miss. Advance purchase recommended.
An Oklahoma native brought up in the Pentecostal church (which he's since departed), this young tunesmith delivers his religious-laced parables, character-driven narratives and relationship tales with the fire-and-brimstone fervor of a preacher, restoring our faith in the power of song. Parker first picked up a guitar at nine, then plugged in and went electric after discovering Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan, eventually starting a cover band. After graduating high school, he went to Northern California, where he interned at Prairie Sun Recording, the studio where Tom Waits cut Bone Machine and Mule Variations. Returning to Oklahoma, he "put down the electric guitar and got into song craft," releasing an indie album, Palisade, which he sold "from the back of my van." A trip to Nashville found him playing at the Tin Pan South songwriter's festival, where he impressed Old Crow Medicine Show's manager so much that he invited Millsap to open a string of dates for the band, later leading to a slot on their prestigious New Year's Eve gig at the Ryman Auditorium. Notably smart, sometimes acerbic, this charismatic young performer rivets audiences with intense but smooth vocal whoops, cascades, and pauses, emotional, blues-based slide guitar with punctuating harmonica, and a sharp, compact band. We're excited to welcome him to McCabe's.
