Folk All Y’all: Listening Room at Studio688, 688 S. Cox St
Memphis, 38104 United States
+ Google Map

Because most of our guests are from outside Memphis, there's always a little bit of "now or never" to our show opportunities, but in this case, it really may be your only chance to see this amazing configuration of artists.  Rebecca Loebe, Grace Pettis, and Betty Soo are all accomplished and acclaimed performers in their own rights, but when they combine powers as Nobody's Girl, they create an unstoppable force of harmony, energy, and love. It's hard to write one…

Tina and Her Pony

May 19, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Folk All Y’all Listening Room at 11 W. Huling, 11 W Huling Ave
Memphis, TN 38103 United States

Both classically trained musicians, Tina Collins and Quetzal Jordan play a roomful of instruments, with their signature sound combining guitar, tenor ukulele, and cello. Tina grew up on the periphery of the Appalachians and Quetzal was raised in Florida by her Guatemalan mother, so even within the world of folk, their music can’t be defined within a single culture or concept. What is undeniable, however, is the soul-stirring power in their union. Oh, and here’s what fancy magazine people say…

Memphis, TN 38103 United States

If you’re a Memphian and don’t already know Cory Branan, it’s long past time to fix that. As I’ve mentioned, Cory is the whole reason I created any connection to the Memphis music scene in the first place, and he nearly ruined me for everyone else. His lyricism is Ph.D level, he’s constantly evolving and advancing his arrangements, and his live performances are just flat-out kickass. Last time we had him over for brunch, but this time we’re opening up the…

An orphan who turned into a preacher A preacher who turned into a songwriter A songwriter that turned into a drunk A drunk that is learning to be a human being At 52, Travis Meadows has a life story those lines only begin to hint at. But it's the way he has woven his shape-shifting reality and perspectives on others that struck me so hard. And I have to admit that I'm very late to this game. Travis is a…

Daniel Champagne

September 6, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

As the son of a musician and a guitar prodigy himself, Daniel Champagne had a head-start on a career in music, but it's his indefatigable work ethic and exuberant appreciation for his supporters that have elevated him from simply an artistic genius to a rising international star. If he were simply a songwriter, his work would be admired throughout the industry; if he were only a singer, audiences would be engaged and enchanted by his voice; if he were just…

September 13, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Packed into this powerhouse is a voice that encompasses country, blues, folk, gospel, bluegrass, and inspirations from Latin America, Africa, and her native Philippines - a mix she refers to simply as "stompin', swayin', and timeless Americana." Whether armed only with her ukulele or with a full band behind her, she takes audiences on a journey from heartbreak to hope. And here's what some other folks had to say ... "Folk singer-songwriter Aireene Espiritu works in the elemental substance of…

Lula Wiles

October 24, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Folk All Y’all Listening Room at 11 W. Huling, 11 W Huling Ave
Memphis, TN 38103 United States
+ Google Map

There’s something a little magic about these three. All Berklee-trained, Ellie Buckland (vocals/guitar/fiddle), Isa Burke (vocals/guitar/fiddle), and Mali Obomsawin (vocals/bass) take turns leading and lighting up their swaddle-tight harmonies and lucid instrumentation. Their songs are clearly evocative of deep folk tradition, but with youthful irreverence and innovation. Hearing them doesn’t sound like a retread – it’s a rebirth. LULA WILES SOUND GREAT! HOW CAN I HEAR THEM? The show will be Wednesday, October 24th with doors opening at 7pm and music starting at 7:30. All tickets are…

If Brian Pounds looks or sounds familiar, it may be because you met him on The Voice a few years back, or perhaps caught him on tour with Blake Shelton or Hayes Carll after that, or maybe you saw him named as a finalist in this year’s Kerrville New Folk songwriting contest. But even if you’re hearing Brian Pounds for the first time, you’ll know immediately that he has something to say. His latest album, “Southern Writer,” evokes the inspirations and influences from a…

Ellisa Sun's sound is honest and textured, combining elements of jazz, soul, and pop. She self-produced her debut album Moon & Sun in 2017 to critical acclaim. SF Weekly called the first single, "Unravel," as near to perfect as any song could be and damn gorgeous. She's now touring in support of her second release, Just a Little More, which boasts a one-of-a-kind, edgy sound that takes listeners on a trip across all spectrums of love (WomenCrushMusic). The Bay Bridged…
