John Elliott + Kelly McFarling + Logan Magness
June 17, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
John Elliott‘s first visit with us was in June 2014, before there was even an official Folk All Y’all to visit, and the experience was so wonderful that I wanted to repeat it as often as I could manage. So it seems only fitting that the person who started it all would be the one to celebrate our third birthday with us and usher in the next year of Folk All Y’all.
I’ve been following his musical career since he was a footman in our high school production of Cinderella. He followed me to college, where he had the audacity to be more talented and successful than I was, and then he spent the next 20 years devoted to making a life with his music, creatively and independently. He writes so smart and plays so deep. We’ve come a long way from the backyard (and Backyards), and on this trip he’ll be joined by a fleet of San Francisco musicians – including Memphis ex-pat Logan Magness – and native-Atlantan Kelly McFarling, who’ll be bringing her contemporary spin on old-timey jams or old-timey spin on contemporary jams. depending on how you look at it.
