Liz Brasher

February 16 @ 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

First finding her voice in a Spanish-speaking Southern Baptist congregation, Liz Brasher followed those gospel roots to their branches in Chicago blues and then the heights of Memphis soul. Along the way, she shaped her own sound that gathers and grows from influences ranging from The Beatles to the Staple Singers, imbuing tales from the ravaged shores of heartbreak with a voice that could stop the tide. But you don’t have to take my word for it … “Prepare to…

David Wilcox

March 8 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
TBA,

This series has gone through a lot of changes since we first welcomed David Wilcox in 2014. After that first (more-than-)sold-out show, David’s come back and played four more. And after he’s stuck with us for so long, I’m thrilled to welcome David Wilcox to our new listening room format and a whole new space. It’s going to be wonderful to come back together with David in a room that reflects how much Folk All Y’all has evolved over the last few…

 Kaia Kater is Québécoise. Kaia Kater is of African-Caribbean descent. Kaia Kater is a student of Appalachian music traditions.

April 12 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
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 @ 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…

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 @ 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…

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

Folk All Y’all Listening Room at 11 W. Huling, 11 W Huling Ave
Memphis, TN 38103 United States

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…
